1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

(1/n) I will be conducting an N=1 'experiment' to try to determine the impact of 2 #eggs per day on my LDL-C, ApoB, HDL-C and triglycerides.

I will document everything in this thread 👇

#eggsperiment
(2/n) Protocol:

Blood test.

Tofu diet phase: Breakfast of scrambled tofu plus a set menu x 14 days.

Blood test.

Wash out phase: Usual diet x 10 days.

Blood test.

Egg diet phase: Isocaloric breakfast of scrambled egg plus the same set menu x 14 days.

Blood test.
(3/n) Baseline bloods:

Total cholesterol: 141mg/dl / 3.65mmol/l

LDL-C: 64mg/dl / 1.66mmol/l

Non-HDL: 64.24mg/dl / 1.66mmol/l

HDL-C: 66.9mg/dl / 1.73mmol/l

Total cholesterol to HDL ratio: 2.11

Triglycerides: 50.44mg/dl / 0.57mmol/l Image

A thread on food and cross-pollination
Military research regularly cross-pollinates into consumer innovation - Stainless steel was originally invented for gun barrels, and Microwave ovens invented during research on naval radar systems (the inventor's chocolate bar melted in his pocket when working on radar systems)
The reason so much orange juice is consumed today is thanks to the research of Linda Brewster, who used a debittering enzyme to reduce the bitterness of Limonin in all citrus juices. Without this, the shelf life of orange juice is very short.

MYTHS & FACTS ABOUT #EGGS🥚

Myth : You need 1½ egg per day. O wrong❌

Myth : You Need about 4 eggs per week.
Really? Please! O wrong❌

Biggest scam in history

#ChiefRx
1. Egg raise your the good fats ( High density lipoprotein - HDL) .
Low density Lipoproteins (LDL) can cause alot of Cardiovascular complications such as Artheosclerosis hence LDL are bad fat.
Taking foods rich in HDL helps mop out these bad fat out of the body
and 1 egg contains 5g of good fat & less than 1g of bad fat.

2. Eggs are essential for your muscles (heart muscles, skeletal muscles, etc)
How? Egg contains 9 essential amino acids & Amino acids are the building blocks of protein
eg Amino acids x 10000 = a protein

THREAD: After 4 years on my health journey (and having lost >50 lbs.), here are my top 20 weight loss and #health tips, things I really wish I had known 20 years ago. #LCHF
1. Stop the Sugar - Avoid #fructose, sucrose, lactose or pretty much anything else that ends in -ose. #Sugar causes blood glucose spikes, which raises your levels of insulin, the main fat-storage hormone.
2. Limit net carbohydrates to 50g or less daily. Lower is even better, shooting for 15g per meal. Calculate net #carbs by subtracting grams of fiber from total carbs.

Even though #Thailand government has reassured people there's enough food stockpile in nation & urges all not to panic buy as #supermarkets remain open, people forming long lines at #Bangkok #grocery store buying up essentials like #rice #oil #eggs #sugar #COVID19 #coronavirus
March 22 to April 12, #Thailand #Bangkok will shut more venues like #malls #salons #beauty clinics this means thousands more employees now will have no work for some 3 weeks. Not sure how firms/businesses are going to deal with this greater economic impact #Covid_19 #coronavirus

How #CoronavirusOutbreak will kill #poultry #Haryana

The #eggs used to sell for Rs 5/piece in winters & between Rs 3.25 to 4 in summers. Now, prices of eggs have fallen to Rs 2.90/unit and there were no takers for culling worthy birds even for a price as low as Rs 10-12
#Farmers used to buy a day-old broiler chick from the hatcheries for Rs 40-45. After feeding the chick for a month, a full-grown broiler(1.5 kg), fetched a price of Rs 80/kg

However, with a steep fall in the demand, now #chicken, broilers are not fetching more than Rs 25 per kg.
#Hatchery #farmers are equally distressed since their one-day-old broiler that costs Rs 20-25 and was selling for Rs 40-45 earlier, is not finding a customer even for Rs 3.

Poultry was already reeling due to a hike in the prices of feed, but now, their situation is precarious.😟
