Remember Keep a Journal/Food Diary? It works.
The study, published online Wednesday in the journal Cell Metabolism, found eating a snack high in fat and sugar every day alters the reward circuits in human brains to create lasting preferences. Fatty and sugary foods train your brain to hate healthier options: Yale study — New York Post, March 22, 2023 HT to Sally […]
Here’s another post in my nearly world famous Electronic Sticky Note series. Posting the link here as summer is starting soon and I need better salads than the prepacked kits I tend to buy and eat. Click for the recipe https://thefirstmess.com/2023/05/24/hummus-crunch-salad/
On average, 86 percent of people surveyed for Statista’s Consumer Insights in 21 countries said that their diet contained meat – highlighting that despite the trend around meat substitutes and plant-based products, eating meat remains the norm almost everywhere in the world. To satisfy the world’s hunger for meat, 340 million tons of it were […]
The first written records of pancakes come from the ancient Greeks and Romans. Around 500 B.C.E., Athenian poet Cratinus described “a [flat cake] hot and shedding morning dew.” Some 600 years later, in the late second century C.E., Greek physician Galen included a recipe in his On the Properties of Foodstuffs that’s similar to how […]

I’ll bet there were a lot of MAGA banners there.
I said good on the Native Americans for closing the highways through their reservations. I know a friend of mine who’s traveling this fall (don’t get me started on his decision timing for a trip through the United States) Who is complaining bitterly about being rerouted. I don’t blame the Indians for trying to keep Covid out of their land. They have enough of the virus already. And my friend is an MD, specializing in occupational medicine! He is a staunch Trump supporter, so that explains a lot.
I’ve seen a few pictures from the Sturgis event, no MAGA banners but a lot more political ideology indicators stronger than a red hat or sign. Political divisions aside it is fascinating how everyone’s risk tolerance levels are so different.
We have an outbreak here in Edmond OK at the Purina cat/dog food facility. 41 positive at last count.
Do they work in close quarters at the Purina facility like a meat packing plant?
I don’t know. Very few details have been released for public consumption.
It really is fascinating.
And I’m wondering have they done studies to compare the incidence of Covid infection in risk averse people versus risk tolerant people?
It would be difficult to control. I speculate that the risk averse people probably have fewer comorbid conditions.
I’ve seen zero studies on the correlation between Covid positivity and risk tolerance. Agree this type of study falls more in the survey/observational type and any findings would be of limited value. I would speculate the opposite of your speculation. Risk adverse people have more comorbid conditions and are likely older.
That would be another interesting observational study about risk averse/tolerant people and comorbid conditions. What I see around here are so many big bellied Trump supporters riding around town in their pick up trucks drinking beer smoking cigarettes waving MAGA flags. I would speculate that most are obese, have hypertension, hyperlipidemia, ASHD, and type two diabetes. It’s getting more and more crazy here with these fanatics riding around in their pick up trucks with huge maga flags circling around and around and around the city all day long. And you can bet many are living on some sort of government paycheck.
Did you just describe Oklahoma?
