    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    You sear your toast? Respect.

    Anyone following this story?

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/11/07/heal...are-costs.html

    Hundreds of billions of dollars could be put toward health-care costs every year if a tax was applied to red and processed meat, Oxford University researchers said Wednesday.

    A new study from the U.K. university said introducing a health tax on such products would offset health-care costs and prevent more than 220,000 deaths a year globally.
    Nutritionists are arguing that it is a dumb idea.

    However, Carrie Ruxton, a public health nutritionist and dietitian, argued that meat consumption had already seen a significant decline in the U.K., adding that red meat provided valuable nutrients to diets.

    "A tax on red meat would be a retrograde step, both for overall diet quality in women and girls and for health inequalities," she said in a statement emailed to CNBC.


    "There is no high-quality evidence linking red and processed meat with heart disease, stroke or diabetes, and a risk of bowel cancer only applies when weekly intakes exceed 700g. As few people in the U.K. are at this level of consumption, a general meat tax would be like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut."
    I read elsewhere that the main author of the study/proposal is a vegan.

    If one were inclined to tax foods that are bad for you, one should focus on corn syrup, fructose, and other sugars. Don't touch my meat!

    [My beverage is unsweetened iced green tea]

    And btw, I read The Obesity Code at your recommendation a couple of months ago. I haven't implemented the fasting schedule, but I've reduced my intake of ice cream, candy, chocolate chip cookie <sniff> and other processed carbs by around 75% (which over my lifetime I've consumed in grossly excessive amounts), while maintaining the same caloric intake and exercise regimen. I've lost around 6-8 pounds, getting close to my ideal weight

    That is awesome!

    I am lower than I have been in at least 15 years. My weight loss has slowed substantially, but still creeping down. Having to buy a new wardrobe, which is a lot of fun.
