Good Proteins, Bad Proteins… 1. Preface: Not All Protein Is Created Equal A few months ago, an interesting Danish study was published, showing that a “high-fat/high-sugar” diet would cause obesity to mice consuming chicken, cod, or crab as their main protein source. However, the group of mice eating scallop protein didn’t develop these problems at all. The researchers...

New Free Health Books

The Mother of Antioxidants
It’s time for more crazy Joey Lott shenanigans. Five new free health books. His books are so spot on though. I feel like, in a way, he’s carrying the torch here for the general 180D parade.

But what about the initiation of the inflammatory signal in the first place? That often turns out...
