This opinion article by Douglas Makinnon is both troubling and groundbreaking. First, no one should ever condone #fatshaming - as it has been proven to be detrimental to individual struggles with #obesity and does not lead to resolution. 1/
The publication of this opinion, which “calls out” the #US government for a “waste of energy” during an #obesity crisis - #obesityepidemic is one of the few times a political publication has addressed the lack of action on resolution of this chronic diesease. @ObesityAction 2/
Despite the accusations in the article that #Physcians are NOT addressing the issue, there is a strong effort from #baraitric #surgeons and #medical #baritricians as well as advocates #RD #nurses @ObesityAction @obsmchat @ObesitySociety @OMAsocial among scores of others 3/

India’s 1st ever nutrition survey of children & adolescents, the Comprehensive National Nutrition Survey (CNNS) 2016-2018, finds undernutrition as well as overnutrition, high rates of stunting as well as excess body weight. Both lead to risk of non-communicable diseases. Details:
1 in 3 (35%) Indian children aged 0-4 years were stunted, 1 in 3 (33%) underweight and 1 in 6 (17%) wasted, CNNS found

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇)…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

"You don't see radio changing gradually and suddenly become radar. #Darwin's theory doesn't work for #technology, and we have to make a new observation."

Unlike the two-parent #inheritance typical to (but not ubiquitous among) #complex organisms, #technology inherits features from n parents - a "vast ancestral #network" more like horizontal gene transfer networks in #bacteria.

1/12 I’ve been tweeting about #T2DM and my #LCHF diet for about a year. Here are some of my observations. I DO observe that a LCHF way of eating has helped me lose weight, sustain that weight loss and get my Type2 into remission. So I advocate it as a method for others try
2/12 – I DO observe a large cohort of other people achieving similar success in removing obesity or reversing #T2DM via #LCHF or their variants, #Keto , #paleo , #carnivore , #banting or #atkins
3/12 – I DO NOT observe large cohorts of people achieving and advocating success in reversing #T2DM through other methods. I would like to; we would all like to; more sustainable options means more patients with better outcomes

1/ Here it is, the culmination of many hours of research - our published paper describing a genetic analysis of depression using data from over 2 million people.…
2/ We firstly analysed DNA data from 800,000 people from @uk_biobank, @23andMeResearch and @PGCgenetics and identified 102 independent variants associated with #depression.
3/ In an independent replication dataset of 1.3 million people, all of the 102 depression variants had an effect in the same direction, 87 were significant after applying Bonferroni correction and 56 passed the threshold for genome-wide significance.

[THREAD] The U.S. spends more $$$ than any other country on health care, but gets worse health outcomes than similar countries.

We live shorter lives and have more disease burden. And the gap between the U.S. and other countries has grown.
Along with Jeffrey Selberg @PetersonCHealth, my @KaiserFamFound colleagues and I took a deep dive into the health system. We examined the last 25 years of health spending and outcomes in the U.S. vs similar countries. We look at dozens of indicators from a variety of data sources
U.S. health outcomes have improved, generally, over the past generation. In the past 25 years, life expectancy in the U.S. improved 4% and disease burden improved 12% (though both recently worsened a bit). Meanwhile, the share of our economy devoted to health increased by 40%
