1/5) IT WORKED! How I lowered by blood Mercury level by adding a Special Mayo 👇 - Thread 🧵

For background, I eat fish 1-2 times per day.

As such, my blood mercury has been running higher than ideal, usually around 13 mg/dL

#fish #mercury #mediketo #mayo
2/5) My reasons for eating fish frequently are bc I enjoy the taste and as an #ApoE4 homozygote (#Alzheimers risk gene) my understanding of the research is that the more real-food EPA/DHA I can get the better!
3/5) Front line advice for keep Mercury levels in normal range is to eat fish low on the food chain & to avoid big fish like tuna and swordfish.

For ref, a table of Mercury levels in fish. You can see, swordfish has ~77-times as much mercury as sardines…

1. Good morning 👋
Tuesdays 🧵Given that most of #Mayo has #Peat soil, it should come as no surprise that the water flowing through the Burrishoole catchment is full of #Carbon, giving the rivers and lakes their typical brown, dark colour

2. There’s nothing particularly special about Lough Feeagh. It’s a fairly typical, deep, #Humic lake (45m deep), similar to many lakes that you find in all the mountainous regions along the west coast. It’s a pretty nice place to work
3. The impacts of #ClimateChange & #LandUse that we measure in Feeagh, therefore, are likely to be replicated in lakes in any of Ireland’s blanket bog catchments (to varying degrees). We'll look at #LandUse change 1st, and how it impacts rivers and downstream aquatic ecosystems

1. Hi everyone, I’m Elvira de Eyto @edeeyto , and this week I’ll be talking about long term monitoring, freshwater ecosystems, migratory fish and a bit about freshwater pearl mussels. I work at the research station in the Burrishoole catchment run by the @MarineInst Aerial view of the Marine Institute, Co. Mayo
@edeeyto @MarineInst 2. I grew up near Navan, Co. Meath, spent a good bit of time in @TCDZoology doing a degree in natural sciences followed by a PhD and subsequent research work on the ecological assessment of lakes
How can we tell what condition a lake is in ?💦
This is the beautiful #LoughCarra Littoral zone of Lough Carra
3. I did my PhD with 3 partners-in-crime @gnfree_gf @J0naf1n and Rossana Caroni, and we spent 2 years driving around 🇮🇪 with a little inflatable boat sampling many many many lakes. No camera phones in those days! 📸These are literally the only 3 photos I have of those 2 years Boat on Lough Inchiquinn, Jonathan, Gary and our boat, Elvir

Cheeseburger in U.S, explains bigger grocery bill of American consumers. they r seeing food prices rise at the fastest rate in decades. Supply chain snarls, labor shortages & climate challenges (plus the conflict in Ukraine) share the blame, but the main culprit is #Consolidation

Beef costs 16% more Vs March 2021.

Tyson, JBS, National & Cargill have been accused of increasing prices on meat products while keeping rancher profits low, they control over 80 % of the beef supply chain.

4 companies owning 80% beef supply is "pure" consolidation guys !

US port congestion has hampered bread bakers, who were waiting longer for those products. 50 input costs had jumped by double digits as of Jan, including hikes in the prices for wheat & natural gas reqd to power ovens. this was before Ukraine crisis, a major wheat exporter

Encabezada por #empresas, expresidentes, partidos de oposición, organismos autónomos, medios de comunicación, columnistas, intelectuales, etc., avanza la estrategia para hacer de @lopezobrador_, un #GobiernoTerminado.

El politólogo estadunidense Gene Sharp lo llama #golpedeestado blando porque ha derrocado gobiernos en #AmericaLatina, y en #México ya se aplican sus primeras fases, que se pueden resumir de la siguiente forma:  Poderosos empresarios –como Claudio X González Guajardo,

here’s @Georgina4Mayo giving $127,373 of her own money to the local bowling club.

oh, hang on, it’s not her money, or even @LiberalAus’ money — it’s a commonwealth grant, ie. *your* money.

oh, hang on, she’s not even the local member. 🤷🏻‍♂️

what justification does she have?
did the good people of the yankalilla bowling club think it was her money?

did georgina think it was her own money to give?

did georgina think it was @LiberalAus’ money?

it’s *your* money!

in what world is this remotely ok? and coming at the end of last week… tone deaf. 🤦‍♂️
i’d love to hear from anyone on the #yankalilla bowling club committee — why did they agree to participate in this crass, partisan, sham event?

To the Pacific NW first & the Emerald City, #Seattle where 11.3% claim Irish as their primary heritage. @CityofSeattle & @galwaycity are sister cities since 1986 & the current Mayor Seattle @MayorJenny has a strong Irish heritage, primarily from #Mayo (pic below!)
John Keane (second in from the left below) is our Honorary Consul in Western US & he has been at the heart of our community in Seattle for decades. He is ably supported by the irrepressible Noreen McCormack (beside John) & they're quite a duo in promoting Ireland-Seattle links!
There is a vibrant community of #GlobalIrish groups & organisations in Seattle - @IrishSeattle, @IrishNetworkSea & @SeattleGaels to name just a few. Together they organise a remarkable programme of heritage, business, sporting & cultural events in Seattle throughout the year.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

It would seem to be a mistake to not have taken peoples' very real, practical concerns more seriously…
This was the article which had been retweeted…
