Have you read the @LancetCountdown’s new report on health and climate change? Check out @UHF_groups’ key takeaways 🧵👇
1) Climate change is impacting weather, #ecosystems, and human systems. This poses a threat to human #health. For example, young children, older people, and marginalized communities are more susceptible to health risks associated with high temperatures and #heatwaves.
2) High temperatures can reduce the frequency and duration of physical activity. Without #exercise, people are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other #NCDs.

I was asked recently to provide some examples of health and fitness marketing that makes false claims and/or exploits human biases. I came up with a billion examples. Here are just 6:

#science #skepticism #criticalthinking #exercise #health
1/6. All-natural #wheyprotein. It exploits the irrational cognitive bias towards natural products.
2/6. L-carnitine sold for decades as a ‘fat burner’ despite research which failed to show consistent and reliable outcomes.

A new study from Gaesser & Angadi shows that exercising is more important than weight loss in preventing heart disease or early death in people with obesity #ph260720 #exercise RT
People with obesity can become stuck in weight loss and weight gain cycle when weight loss is the primary goal of their obesity treatment via Gaesser & Angadi #ph260720 #obesity…
After analyzing 200 meta-analyses & individual studies Gaesser & Angadi found that people with obesity who began exercising after previously being sedentary lowered their risk of early death by at least 30% even without any weight loss #ph260720 #iScienceJournal #prevention

Of all the diseases, the ONE that is most often thought as something that can be treated with #exercise is, of course, #obesity. But, instead, obesity is commonly treated with #drugs. Who would like to know more about the history of FDA-approved obesity drugs in the US? A thread!
For economy, let's skip the part about the 1st wave of obesity drugs being based on amphetamine & methamphetamine (to speed up metabolic rate), either alone or in combination with a "downer," to balance the stimulatory effect of the meth/amphetamine on the central nervous system.
In 1959, phentermine (an amphetamine analogue, with less addictive potential) was introduced. It stimulates the release of norepinephrine (primarily), and dopamine and serotonin (secondarily) in the brain. Acts as an appetite suppressant.

6 takeaways from @BioLayne on @PeterAttiaMD podcast

#Exercise #fitness #nutrition

1) Exercise is the most important drug we have.

Use it! Don't get bogged down by the details of nutrition.
2) People tend to want to isolate nutrients as good or bad (keto, vegan, etc...).


Context matters.
3) Know what you are optimizing for.

Example: fasting may be good for longevity, but if you're goal is to hit a world record in squat, then it's probably not ideal

What’s up with RCTs of #exercise for people w #cancer?

Introducing OREO!

*Outcome Reporting bias in Exercise Oncology trials*

@BenSinghPhD @CiaranFairman @Katebolam @jfc_science @Rosie_Twomey @dnunan79 @IMLahart



There are now hundreds of RCTs in #exerciseoncology & many systematic reviews.

These underpin guidelines & calls for exercise to be part of cancer care.

#exerciseismedicine 2/n
However, in many disciplines including #psychology & #oncology, there is evidence of selective reporting bias:

Reporting the results of some outcomes or analyses & not others, depending on the nature (e.g. significant p-value) or direction (e.g. positive) of the results.

In this one, animal-based food sources elicited greater anabolic responses than plant-based food sources, due to the simultaneous stimulation of whole-body protein synthesis and suppression of protein breakdown.

The magnitude of anabolic response was related to the EAA content. ImageImageImageImage

Tony's STILL banging on about #IDcards, nearly 20yrs later - 'cos make no mistake, that's what #VaccinePassports will become.

Just as WWII's [left 👇] became @10DowningStreet/@ukhomeoffice's [right 👇] with a centralised #biometric #NationalIdentityRegister behind it... ImageImage will #YellowCards [left 👇] morph into 'just an #app on your #phone' [right 👇] - claimed to be 'not #mandatory', of course (unless you want to live your life, work or travel...) and with the centralised #biometric #registration Government has wanted all along. ImageImage
So here's a few questions the #HealthPassport headbangers must answer:

1a) When Heathrow re-opens, given (current) #vaccines don't prevent #transmission, aren't people still going to have to be #tested?

1b) If people have to be tested anyway, what's the point of the 'passport'?
