Unlimited Access To 47 Million Research Papers For Free

Apparently some enterprising pirates have figured out a way to host a repository of 47 million pirated research papers.  The website Sci-Hub has just come online, where one can find virtually any paper on any subject.  I just tried looking up some obscure papers written by Hannes Alfven back in the 80s.  To my surprise,…

Dr. Peter Attia: Hack, Liar and All Round Disgusting Individual

  Apparently Peter and his buddy Gary Taubes just love themselves some crappy pseudoscience. Both of them are funded by the Arnold Foundation, with substantial ties to animal agriculture industry lobbying.  Marion Nestle notes the Arnold’s working relationship with a National Restaurant Association and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association consultant. So let’s go over the bogus arguments in this…

UFC Fight: Why Nate Diaz Beat Champion Conor McGregor

What a great Saturday night! I setup my giant 120″ projector screen in my friend’s yard and we invited a pile of people over to watch the Diaz v. McGregor fight on pay per view.  I swear it’s better than actually being there. What I didn’t know until recently is that McGregor got his butt kicked by a…

Blood Test Results One Year Later After Going Vegan

I had a third round of blood tests done the other day, which provides for some interesting comparisons over the course of the past year.  I went vegan back in March of 2015, so now I have one blood test prior to going vegan, taken a few years ago, and two while eating a vegan diet.…

The Saturated Fat Studies: Set Up to Fail

Have you ever seen studies claiming that dietary cholesterol and saturated fat have no correlation to heart disease?  Dr. Michael Greger explains how we’ve known since 1979 that cross-sectional population studies will unavoidably show a zero correlation between diet and heart disease because of the large differences between individual cholesterol levels.  Cross-sectional studies lack the statistical power to…

Eating Lettuce Three Times Worse For The Environment Than Bacon

According to a recent paper put out by scientists at Carnegie Mellon University, following the USDA dietary recommendations to consume more fruits, vegetables and seafood would consume nearly 40% more energy and 10% more water resources on average than it would take to eat the Standard American Diet (SAD).  While I don’t dispute the findings, I…
