Janice commenter Janice at 9:27 am on June 4, 2017 commenting on Protein Recycling Pathway Mutated in ALS:

My mother was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014. Her doctor put her on riluzole, letting her know there was no cure but the medication might provide her a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. My mother, being 73 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). Her arms weakened first, then her hands, her mouth, and throat, and finally her lungs. Throughout her two-and-a-half-year ordeal, she was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help her condition.I took her off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started her on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, her symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the ALS disease natural herbal formula. She's now almost 76 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!! Visit there website www. healthherbalclinic. net

I am Joan Barragan from Portland, Oregon, USA. I was diagnosed of COPD/Emphysema in Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in 2014. In August 2016 my condition worsened and my doctor adviced me for Lung volume reduction surgery to remove part of my lungs, making room for the rest of the lung to work better, considering the risk involved i was scared and i resorted online for help, I was in a health website when i read a testimony of a woman from Canada who was totally cured of COPD through the herbal remedy she purchased from a herbal clinic in South Africa, i immediately contacted this herbal clinic via their website and purchased the COPD herbal remedy, i received the herbal remedy within 7 days via courier service and commenced usage. After four weeks and two days of usage, I did another breathing test and my doctor confirmed my lungs were repaired. Thank you Health herbal clinic.

Judith commenter Judith at 3:29 am on June 26, 2016 commenting on Gene Therapy Lowers HIV Viral Load:

It is no longer news that HIV/AIDS is increasing by the day. The fear is that many people living with the sickness are scared of saying it because of the stigma that comes along with it. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus about a year ago after a medical check-up. My doctor told me that i could live a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to HIV). I felt like my world has crumbled. i will love to say i was so lucky to have come across testimonies online of how Dr.Walanta has cured victims with his herbal medications. i contacted his email and indeed he prepare a herbal medicine for me and sent it through DHL Service. He told me how to use the medications and after 23days of usage, i did the test again and i was confirmed negative. you can receive a package from him anywhere you are in the world. send a mail to him on this email: drwalantaherbals@gmail.com,if you have similar problems

Susan S commenter Susan S at 4:50 pm on December 11, 2015 commenting on Folic Acid Helps Young Female Runners:

I see that this post is quite old, but unfortunately it still comes up readily on a search about folates. The advice here is dated and for some young women, those that have a genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene, it could cause harm. The author recommends folates from various sources without differentiating them, which is at the root of a great problem in our country today. Synthetic folic acid found in flour and baked goods of all kinds, is harmful to many because they cannot convert it to a methylfolate form that the body can use. In addition, the synthetic competes with what usable folate there is for cell receptors, further reducing the amount of folate that reaches the cells. Folates found naturally in leafy greens, juices and other foods are fine, because nature has formulated them to be usable in the human body. For those with an MTHFR problem, this inability to convert synthetic folic acid to methyfolate triggers a process in the body that leads to all kinds of common diseases and ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, several kinds of cancer, chronic fatigue, PCOS, IBS, depression, anxiety disorders, poor immune response, and many others--there is also a growing body of information that this problem is at least a partial factor in autism. It is estimated that about 15% of all Americans have a variation of this defect that will cause significant health problems throughout their lives. Why the U.S. government continues to mandate the fortifying of wheat products with folic acid is a mystery. They have effectively killed way more people than they ever helped by requring its use. Personally, all of the health problems I have lived with for 40 years due to a simple methylfolate deficiency have sidetracked what could have been a productive life, instead of one spent in bed, at the doctor's office or in the hospital. Uncle Sam should have paid all my medical bills for the last 40 years.

Importantly, the findings cited here cannot and do not prove cause and effect. Sugar-sweetened beverages are safe, and can be integrated to a healthy diet, just as with other sources of calories. According to the Mayo Clinic (http://wb.md/1y1YIC7), the best way to prevent nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is to maintain a healthy weight and enjoy a balanced diet and active life in order to do so.

Find someone who goes to meetings and ask him/her to buy a calculator for you...simple. I went to one round and have been doing it on my own ever since...without a formula most of us will never understand. It's the only system I've ever been successful on and I basically live on it.

DM commenter DM at 10:23 am on March 5, 2015 commenting on Weight Watcher's PointsPlus Formula Unveiled:

NONE of these formulas is accurate. Use the McD filet of fish as an example and you will see that it is calculated at half as much as it should.

dmcfaithful commenter dmcfaithful at 5:32 pm on January 1, 2015 commenting on Weight Watcher's PointsPlus Formula Unveiled:

Microsoft Excel formulas:

I'm posting this again with the hope of successfully using the "html br tag" at the end of each paragraph in order to add a line break.

For those of you who are trying to use Microsoft Excel formulas as a calculator for Weight Watchers PointsPlus, I had to make some minor corrections to what was published above in order to make them work. Those corrected formulas are as follows:

Actual Points:

=(((B5*16)+(B6*19)+(B7*45))/175)-(B8*(2/25))

Rounded Points (the MAX formula isn't necessary):

=ROUND((((B5*16)+(B6*19)+(B7*45))/175)-(B8*(2/25)),0)

B5 is Protein

B6 is Carbs

B7 is Fat

B8 is Fiber

I also found another accurate formula from the spreadsheet that can be downloaded here: http://www.foodlady.com/WWxls.php

This happens to be a more complete version of RUTHANN's formula, which is as follows:

Actual Points:

=(B5/10.9375)+(B6/9.2105)+(B7/3.8889)-(B8/12.5)

Rounded Points (the MAX formula isn't necessary):

=ROUND((B5/10.9375)+(B6/9.2105)+(B7/3.8889)-(B8/12.5),0)

Curious which formula variation was correct, I performed multiple tests and comparisons and I compared those results with an official and physical Weight Watchers PointsPlus calculator. To my surprise, both versions of these Microsoft Excel formulas worked perfectly with no variation great enough to cause the points to not match the physical calculator results.

The minuscule variations that I did notice between the two different Microsoft Excel formulas were only in the hundred thousandths position, which is so small that the results from those formulas never made any difference and would always match the physical calculator results.

Just so you know, I’m an advanced Microsoft Excel user with a strong attention to detail, so I’m certain that the information in my post is accurate for anyone wanting to use Microsoft Excel formulas as a calculator for Weight Watchers PointsPlus.

I hope this helps.

Just as with other types of calories, sugar sweetened beverages can be enjoyed in moderation as a part of a balanced diet. This is also the case with food consumption, which is actually the top contributor of added sugars in the American diet.

Peter commenter Peter at 8:04 pm on September 20, 2014 commenting on Fat Shaming Can Lead to Weight Gain:

I think fat shaming can lead to weight loss just as likely as it can lead to weight gain. Anecdotally I know of people who were jolted into a diet after being called a fatty, for instance by a passing motorist or the like. The reason for this is that many people are not aware of how fat they are. That seems unlikely, but it's true. They avoid looking at themselves in the mirror (except for the front facing view they get when brushing their teeth), and they avoid photographs and videos. So when they are suddenly brought face to face with the reality of what they have become, they get religion and diet. This can happen when they see a photo or video of themselves that they didn't know was being made, or it can be when someone rudely points out their condition.

In a society where "fat shaming" is absolutely absent, people can balloon and balloon without even being that aware of it. Having someone, a friend or family member or workmate or even a stranger comment on your weight can help plant a mental milestone that gets you thinking, and maybe eventually taking action. But if everyone conspires to just never mentioning your weight, you can fool yourself into doing nothing.

Yes, every fat person knows he or she is fat, they not every fat person KNOWS it in the sense of knowing exactly how fat they are and in the sense of having it in the front of their minds. And fat shaming can accomplish this. Maybe we can rename it to "weight self-perception assistance."

Mark commenter Mark at 6:48 am on September 8, 2014 commenting on Polyester Clothes May Reek After Exercise:

Polypropelene clothes have had the reputation of stinking, so much so that the fabric has been nicknamed "polypew." But Wikipedia says this problem has been solved:

"Polypropylene undergarments are known for retaining body odors which are then difficult to remove. The current generation of polyester does not have this disadvantage."

I wonder if the odor problem reported in this item might be simply solved by laundering the clothing, rather than putting it in an incubator?

It’s important to note that sales of soft drinks have actually declined by 12.5 percent since 2000. This is due, in part, to the beverage industry’s innovation in bringing more no-calorie, low-calorie and smaller-portion beverage options to market. In addition to soft drinks, which can be enjoyed as a part of a balanced diet and active life, our member companies offer a wide variety of choices.

This led me to read up on Choco Pies at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choco_Pie

There are Orion and Lotte versions (Lotte in Japan), and they both copied the American Moon Pie. Maybe Japan should send Lotte Choco Pies and the U.S. could launch Moon Pies and Scooter Pies from an offshore nuclear submarine.

I love this, from Wikipedia:

"North Korean workers at the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea receive Choco Pies as part of their compensation. Prior to the closing of the complex during the 2013 Korean crisis, workers received up to 20 Choco Pies per day in addition to their wages. The workers would often resell the pies on the black market. After the complex's five-month halt in operations, workers were cut back to a maximum of two Choco Pies per day."
