  1. A little more graphical presentation of similar information...France and Italy both have had compulsory mask laws since early summer. Norway has notably eschewed a general masking requirement. Data is normalized for population.
  2. Seeing how science is being manipulated to fit a message by the CDC and others is rather interesting, if a little distressing. Back in the summer, the CDC released a case report of two hairdressers in Missouri who were COVID positive but wore masks while they served customers in close contact and none of the customers became infected. In their discussion of this case report, the CDC said the following: The results of this study can be used to inform public health policy during the COVID-19 pandemic. A policy mandating the use of face coverings was likely a contributing
  3. I was taking half a gram of KSM-66 standardized extract before bed.
  4. Review J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2018 Feb 27;15:10. doi: 10.1186/s12970-018-0215-1. eCollection 2018. How much protein can the body use in a single meal for muscle-building? Implications for daily protein distribution Brad Jon Schoenfeld 1, Alan Albert Aragon 2 PMID: 29497353 Controversy exists about the maximum amount of protein that can be utilized for lean tissue-building purposes in a single meal for those involved in regimented resistance training. It has been proposed that muscle protein synthesis is maximized in young adults with an intake of ~ 20-25 g of a high-quality prot
  5. After a week or so on Ashwagandha, I can confirm this same effect....took me a while to figure it out but I was experiencing this low level of background anxiety that I couldn't connect to anything and discontinuing seems to have resolved it.

  7. I'll continue my mental masturbation here.... France began requiring face mask use in May 2020. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/france-face-masks-coronavirus/2020/05/09/ They increased the scope of their mask mandate in August https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-53817383 And again in September https://www.france24.com/en/20200907-top-french-court-approves-mandatory-covid-19-face-masks-in-high-risk-zones And yet, the number of COVID cases in France is currently shattering records https://www.euronews.com/2020/10/

  9. I can confirm that too much Exemestane makes my libido go from 15 year old with a Pornhub addition to 75 year old nun pretty fast.
  10. They are only comparable in that they are two interventions that seem like they should work. Two interventions that we enthusiastically embraced without taking the time to evaluate their effectiveness simply because it seemed so obvious that they would be effective. Two examples of how the data, when you actually collect it, doesn't disprove the null hypothesis. I could have used sodium bicarb for MCI or MAST for hypovolemic shock as less invasive alternative examples....things that seemed so obviously effective that we did them routinely, but when we stopped to study them, found
  11. Indeed. The context in which we are using and advocating masks is critical I think. Masking of the public at large in order to control a respiratory virus reminds me of knee debridement/meniscus repair surgery. Both seem so commonsense effective that it hardly seems worth studying. How can it not work? And yet, when we actually do the studies, neither intervention appears to be very effective. In addition to actual RCTs and observational studies on the effectiveness of masking that have been posted elsewhere in this thread, there is a growing body of real-wo
  12. This is a rather counterintuitive bit of data buried in the CDC Mortality & Morbidity Weekly Report from 11 September 2020 and may support my suspicions about the Danish study that the authors are sitting on... So mask-wearing had no statistically relevant effect on infection rates and almost 3/4 of the infected group reported "always" wearing a mask in public in the two weeks prior to becoming infected. Of course, this may be simply reporting bias by the people they interviewed....who may not want to admit to not wearing a mask. This
  13. Makes sense. American English is different than English English or Australian English and I have to believe Mexican Spanish and Spanish Spanish are also different.
  14. Niacin. Although it comes with some baggage, not the least of which is the flush.
  15. The human clinical data on OLE is pretty impressive. In addition to being effective at managing HBP, it also improves insulin sensitivity, beneficially modifies lipids, favorably impacts the course of URIs, and does a bunch of other cool stuff when taken orally.
