The case of baby formula is basically the history of nutrition over the last century, in a nutshell. We have a perfect animal-based product, in need of no improvement, replaced by inferior products of industrial origin, with serious negative effects. 👇
A new study of nearly 800 formula products from around the world clearly shows that the claims made on behalf of the products - claims that might sway a mother into using them instead of breastfeeding - are bunk.
Most of the "scientific evidence" used to back up such claims came from studies written by people who had received funding from the formula industry or had direct connections to the business.
Here's a link to the study:…

We should be paying attention to this latest mainstream coverage of our sphere. Where once the MSM, if it took any notice, simply tried to dismiss what we're doing as nonsense, now they admit we actually do have a point. 👇
Despite my "racism" (a link to an SPLC hitpiece that smears me by association - who hasn't the SPLC tried to smear?), I offer "cogent nutritional and lifting advice", the piece says.
It's clear that, as our message becomes more popular, dismissal doesn't work as a containment strategy. Now they will try to coopt and redirect our message. Mark my words.

This famous Gironda course works on the principle that every muscle has four sides (higher, lower, inner, outer) and that the most effective way to work it is thus to work all four. That means four different exercises for each body part. 👇
The split is six days on, one day off.

Day 1 - back, chest, shoulders
Day 2 - triceps, biceps, forearms
Day 3 - thighs and calves

Then repeat, resting on the seventh day. That's 12 exercises each day, except 3+6.

You do each workout TWICE a day, ideally at least 4hrs apart.
Vince, as you'd expect, chose each exercise and ordered them scrupulously. You can easily find the original pamphlet in digital form to read his detailed instructions on exactly how to perform each exercise. Here are two exercises from day 1, for instance.

Increase exposure to phthalates, one of the principal compounds implicated in today's fertility crisis, is associated with a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study. 👇
1300 women from the National Multipollutant Study were followed for six years. Eleven different phthalate metabolites were measured in blood samples at various points. 61 of the 1300 developed diabetes.
"Among White women, each doubling of the concentrations of mono-isobutyl phthalate (MiBP), monobenzyl phthalate, mono-carboxyoctyl phthalate, mono-carboxyisononyl phthalate (MCNP), and mono(3-carboxypropyl) phthalate was associated with a 30% to 63% higher incidence of diabetes."

As amusing as it is to celebrate the continuing failure of companies like Impossible and Beyond Meat, we should be careful not to think this means fake food is going away. It isn't. In fact, more money is pouring into this rubbish than ever. 👇
Yesterday, for instance, Anne Hathaway announced her investment in EVERY, a company which uses precision fermentation to make protein, including "egg protein", in tanks. This relatively new company has already raised $230 million in seed capital to date.
You only need to look at a list of new startups, or the latest round of investments by a venture capitalist like Paul Graham, to see just how many new "alternative protein", "plant-based meat" and other fake-food players there are. The number is increasing all the time.

Researchers at the University of Toledo compared corn consumption with obesity figures for the US and found some interesting correlations. 👇
First of all, it's worth noting that totally calorie intake does not track with obesity in the US, as this graph shows. (Square is BMI>30, circle is food consumption).
The researchers found an almost 1:1 correlation between corn consumption and obesity.

New study suggests that paternal exposure to a chemical in plastic can have negative health effects two generations down the line. 👇 Image
Researchers looked at the impact of paternal exposure to dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP), a chemical added to plastic to increase its durability.

Using mice, they showed that exposure resulted in insulin resistance and impaired insulin signalling two generations down the line.
Using new sequencing methods, they showed that the chemical affected the RNA of sperm. Interestingly, while the effects carried over to offspring of both sexes in the 1st generation, it only carried over to male offspring in the 2nd.
