By the way, it turns out that Hillandale Farms, where the massive fire took place Saturday, is not really the 4th largest supplier of eggs in the country. It is owned by the BIGGEST supplier of eggs, Cal-Maine Foods.
And Cal-Maine Foods is doing GREAT, thanks for asking. #eggs #EggShortage…
Interesting side note: I only found out that Cal-Maine owns Hillandale by watching an old Youtube video on DIY chicken feed. Not even the AG of NY mentions the connection in her gouging action against Hillandale from 2020. I have questions.🤔…

Earning Extra Money From Focus Groups Saved Me

A Thread 🧵
I had started a business and I was struggling to pay the bills (maybe you can relate).
I couldn’t even afford to go to a Friends Wedding.

That’s when my friend Jennifer told me about Focus Groups that pay between $75 - $250.
I was skeptical but had Nothing To Lose
So I did what she told me and began getting phone calls from these companies offering to pay me to discuss everyday products like Beer, Tequila, travel, social media, etc…

I can’t tell you how happy I was leaving one of these groups with two crisp $100 bills in an envelope!!

June 3 is #NationalEggDay. We honor today by taking a close look at the environmental, ethical, and health impacts of poultry farming and highlighting ways to help hens raised for their #eggs. 1/13 Image
Studies show that #chickens are socially complex beings capable of self-control and empathy.

Despite their proven sentience, the #poultry industry raises billions of chickens for their meat and eggs every year. @JenMishler reports. 2/13…
Before the 1920s, #chickens were thought of as smart and industrious.

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. 🙂

#cats #pets

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 👇

(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.

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

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

Myth : Egg ain't good for your Heart?
Biggest scam in history

Lemme make a Short detailed Thread about the BENEFITS OF EATING EGGS

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.

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.😟
