  1. The real reason he went to Durham was so he, his son, and his parents would at least be together in the event of any family member succumbing to the virus. And which was denied by the vast majority who abided by the government's doctrine to stay at freaking home.
  2. Trial by media is pronounced in today's world, and not the better for it. IMO, Cummings broke the government's published rules, and should have been fined at least. Whether that should extend to a resignation or sacking is up to the PM. What is clear, though, is the UK government are incompetent on all levels regarding the Coronavirus management, and the general population is becoming less entranced with johnson's ability to lead them through it safely. Cummings' actions being a an 'in your face' example of government resolution weakness. Which is pretty clear that when the next GE is held, it will no doubt be a shoo-in for Keir Starmer - to which I look forward.
  3. Yes, another example of highly processed junk foods. I don't touch them, by sticking to my whole food, plant based lifestyle.
  4. The reason you had stents put in to your arteries, Bill, was that they became clogged from (mainly) consuming processed meat products over the years. It's a slow disease, that's why people ignore the symptoms. By continuing your same eating habits there is a high risk of a similar heart attack.
  5. It's the quality of life that matters. Why spend several miserable years depending on meds to live out your days?
  6. A study published in the British Medical Journal in 1985 reported that meat-eaters are twice as likely to develop gallstones as vegetarians (Pixley et al., 1985). Since then the low incidence of gallstones in vegetarians compared to meat-eaters has been consistently reported (Key et al., 1999).
  7. Protein is overrated. By following a whole food plant based lifestyle, you will provide your body with all the protein you need - and would (scientifically proven) to reverse diabetes 2 as well. While meat protein is absorbed quicker, it's not essential. I'm sorry to hear about your gallstones, it was an unnecessary operation, IMO. Soy products such as tofu, tempeh, and edamame are among the richest sources of protein in a vegan diet. ... Lentils. ... Chickpeas. ... Peanuts. ... Almonds. ... Spirulina. ... Quinoa. ... Mycoprotein. A study published in the British Medical Journal in 1985 reported that meat-eaters are twice as likely to develop gallstones as vegetarians (Pixley et al., 1985). Since then the low incidence of gallstones in vegetarians compared to meat-eaters has been reported (Key et al., 1999). This is the 'professional health experts' science. Perhaps you could do a little research before jumping in with inane comments. And or your information, I'm not a Vegan - I follow a WFPB lifestyle.

  9. All meat consumption results in an inflammatory response, especially processed meat - which scientists advise is unhealthy. However, two slices of bacon a week, providing accompanying food is plant based, and makes up at around 70-80% of your lifestyle is probably not harmful to you, only the pig that was slaughtered to feed you.
  10. Don't blame them. Probably less hassle (with thai customs restrictions (to do business elsewhere.
  11. I'm the same age as him. My frozen UK pension is £600 a month. And at my age no insurance company that I know of, provides cover after 75 - or maybe at best, a ridiculously high premium. If I'm hospitalised, I'll use my savings.
  12. Then why the <deleted> did she not only go and get the small, insignificant knife, but used it to stab the security guard? No wonder Thai children grow up learning that this argument resolution by their family elders is the way to go. i've no sympathy at all.
  13. IMO, on seeing how the UK government is mismanaging the coronavirus in every shape and form, I have zero confidence that they could handle post-brexit deals any better. In fact, if it wasn't so serious, it's beyond my comprehension that they could manage anything. Currently, they're a disgrace, a lying toe-rag of ministerial incompetence, and what was the avoidable cause of care home deaths. That alone, is despicable - in any other business the CEO (Johnson) and his right hand man (health secretary) would be fired for dereliction of duty of care. The sooner the population have the opportunity to vote for Keir Starmer to replace his government, the better. And that will happen without any doubt, IMO.
  14. Only combined with a HIV drug and Zinc, the latter considered to be the main immune booster, and which is being studied in depth by scientists.
  15. Agreed. If Trump, who is BMI obese, focuses on his dietary regime instead, he'd be a lot healthier. Keep up high levels of Zinc, Vit C and D3 to combat corona viruses, and forget this malaria drug. As for the overpaid US physicians - as in other western societies - they are only capable of treating symptoms, not the cause of disease. Sometimes, I wonder what planet he's on?
