it is my belief that market forces, democratic decline, and a toxic obsession with “national security”—a euphemism for state supremacy—are drawing the US and China to meet in the middle: a common extreme.
Pre-pandemic, about 8% of U.S. adults experienced depression. But in a survey of 1,161 people taken between March and April of 2020, that statistic jumped to 28%.
And when researchers surveyed the same people a year later, they saw a jump to 32%.
How is this not talked about more? It’s totally insane.
Funny to see this as AOTD today as I just saw him on Twitter too :)
I had gained a staggering amount of control. I was no longer tempted to scroll down an infinite feed of content. The time I spent on Facebook decreased dramatically. Overnight, my Facebook addiction became manageable
Nettle concentrates vitamins and minerals from the soil in its body, resulting in easily absorbable nutrition, boasting superior levels of phytonutrients and life-sustaining vitamins and minerals. A cup of Nettle tea can offer 500 mg of calcium—double what’s in a cup of cow’s milk. Fortifying blood, building bones, increasing energy levels, improving circulation, and decreasing inflammation and oxidative stress in the body are a few of the health benefits.
If a company doesn't want to bear the risk of manufacturing and selling an FDA-approved treatment that the government has determined is mostly safe and mostly effective, then the government should simply assume that risk--and the patent.
Imagine a world where capitalist organisations can produce stuff that gets injected in your body and they won’t be liable if something goes wrong... oh wait... we’re there already and it isn’t going particularly well. This article clearly didn’t age well
My earlier experiences of falling in love had felt like being stuffed in a barrel and thrown off a waterfall, a blind tumble both euphoric and terrifying. Falling in love with Henry felt like being carried along a smooth river to the sea.
If you want to see climate change reversed…skip the ranty Instagram post and just stop using Amazon, plant a garden, build soil health, and start showing the love to your local food coop and farmers market. And when friends notice the change, share why generously
My wife and I are preparing to leave the country if things don’t change in the next 12 months. We don’t feel safe to raise our kids in a police state where the military is deployed to enforce Orwellian rules and police use pepper spray against teenagers
I love meat, and I’m eager to switch to the tissue-cultured variety. After tissue-culture meat becomes cheaper than animal-farmed meat, there will be holdouts who insist that they won’t eat “fake” meat, just as there are now people who refuse Covid vaccines and insist on blasting diesel smoke into the air
Wow... there is a lot in this section that I’m super uncomfortable with
This is the perfect example of a doctor who (alongside with many many other health professionals) discredit the entire health industry. Anyone who does some research knows that the vaccinated can still contract as well as transmit the virus (hence the mask mandate even on vaccinated people) and yet he makes statements like these:
This time around, the unanticipated crisis driving the surge of cases was avoidable if enough people had taken the necessary precautions and got their Covid vaccines.
The surge of cases was unavoidable (send my regards to delta) but what is avoidable with the vaccine is hospitalisations. I can’t believe that a doctor with the his credentials doesn’t understand the difference. No wonder so many people stay hesitant.
