I mean mot wearing a seatbelt might only increase you actual chance of dying in a car crash a couple of percent because you might not ever be in a car crash. It still greatly increases your risk though.

 

You and I seem to have different definitions for great increases in risk.

The China Study is pretty laughable. His own research (not the actual China Study) contradicts many conclusions he makes. His dietary recommendations are the same general dietary recommendations made by most RDs other than the exclusion of animal products.

Traditional bodybuilding choice and the high taurine content improves glucose metabolism.

I started climbing again and I'm enjoying it so far. Shoulder acted up a bit today though so I've gotta keep up with the lifting as well. Oy, lets see how this goes, but I think climbing 3x a week is too much for my body hahaha.

The guy I'm living with atm is very into climbing so I tried it a while ago. He commented on my technique being funny cause I used too much upper body. Were a couple of instances were I had no where to put the feet so I just let them go and pulled up myself instead.
Anyway, very fun and challenging, especially those shorter and more technical climbs that favoured strength and explosiveness more.

Guys, just shut up and eat the damn cod.

It seems the preponderance of data points toward a vegetarian diet as decreasing risk factors for various negative outcomes, such as cancer and cardiovascular events. I don't think it's only Campbell, but other authors have seen this as well. I don't recall seeing a mortality benefit, although there are correlations between people who live longer life spans and eating a diet more vegetarian (or fish) based.

One can't help but wonder if the lower life expectancy of males may, in part, be associated with their higher consumption of meat than women. There are so many factors, however, proving this statistically seems improbable. Therefore, it's merely a set of trends that might point one away from a body-building diet and toward a more vegetarian based one. That said, I think the people here are more in tune with their health in general, so would buck most of the above trends. Most of you guys seem to be in your twenties, anyway, so no one really eats that well then.

I am so much more into being sort of vegetarian now that i discovered yotam ottolenghi's books.

I also make my own greek yogurt in the sous vide.

But my priority right now isn't fitness so take from that what you will.

Minimize dry high-heat preparations and avoid processed meats. That just about ameliorates all current carcinogenic concerns of consuming meats.

To make greek yogurt:

Bring a pretty large quantity of milk to a boil - usually a gallon will do.
Allow milk to cool down to about 110 degrees
Whisk in a couple of tablespoons of your favorite greek yogurt
Keep mixture as close to 110 degrees as possible for 10-12 hours or more. A well insulated crockpot that has been turned off can sometimes work. Usually even the lowest setting on a crock pot is too high though, and will cook the mixture, which you don't want
You will see the whey start to separate out - its a yellowish liquid.
When the yogurt has reached the desired level of sourness, strain using cheesecloth or, my favorite, a tea towel (as it's washable) - for as long as it takes to reach the desired thickness.
