Broccoli to HMOs

Fri, 11 May 2007 13:52:19 GMT

those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man gained pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, 'You want fries with that?' And Man replied, 'Yes! And super size them!' And Satan said, 'It is good.' And Man went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

Then Satan created HMOs.

Paralyzed Mice Walk Again

Tue, 01 May 2007 20:21:19 GMT

Lee Dye:  Samuel Stupp has a bunch of mice that used to drag their hind legs behind them when they crawled around his Illinois lab, but they have miraculously regained at least partial use of their rear legs.  Astonishingly, their severed spinal cords have been repaired, at least partly, without surgery or drugs.  All it took was a simple injection of a liquid containing tiny molecular structures developed by Stupp and his colleagues at Northwestern University. Six weeks later, the mice were able to walk again.

In the last week, I've ran/walked 7 kilometers and biked 10 km, 10 km and 15 km. Hopefully, I keep it up.

Beer fights cancer

Mon, 19 Jun 2006 23:40:45 GMT

AP: An ingredient in beer seems to help prevent prostate cancer in lab experiments, Oregon researchers say. The trouble is you'd theoretically have to drink about 17 beers a day for any potential benefit, and no one's advising that.

Randy: Tempting excuse.

Coffee may cut alcohol liver damage

Thu, 15 Jun 2006 20:34:02 GMT

CNN: Researchers report that drinking coffee cuts the risk of cirrhosis of the liver from alcohol -- by 22 percent per cup each day -- but they stopped short of saying doctors should prescribe coffee for that reason.

Daily Stuff

It's two months later and I'm still hanging in the 180s. Hockey season is almost over, which will help my calorie (read beer) in-take.

Live long enough to find good

Wed, 19 Apr 2006 14:09:41 GMT

A French video about living long enough to find the good, that is, don't get AIDS and die, before you find your true love.

Daily Stuff

Sat, 11 Feb 2006 19:11:09 GMT

Feb 9th - 3 beer, 184 lbs, no exercise (bad).
Feb 10th - too many beer (bad), 183, 2 kms on bike.

This is an awful start.

Daily Stuff

Thu, 09 Feb 2006 15:57:59 GMT

I've decided that from now on I'm gonna blog my beer consumption, exercise and weight everyday (or whenever I remember). Maybe this will help me get down to 170 lbs and get me some life insurance.

Feb 8th - 3 beer, 182 lbs, 2 km on bike.

Cholesterol, Part II

Mon, 06 Feb 2006 16:31:31 GMT

As I blogged last week, an insurance company rejected me based on my cholesterol level. I saw my doctor this morning and he told me the results did not concern him. That's the second time I've been rejected by an insurance company and my doctor was unconcerned with the results that led to the rejection. He says, I should lose ten pounds, exercise more and drink less, but I'm healthy. Nothing new. A relief and frustration.


Wed, 01 Feb 2006 22:08:11 GMT

Today I got the great news from my doctor that someone doesn't like my cholesterol level. In particular, the insurance company that I want insurance from. It seems every time I go to the doctor, I'm just fine. Go to an insurance company and I'm dying.

Update: It would seem beer reduces your cholesterol level. The week prior to my test, I didn't drink any beer, thinking this would positively affect my results.

5 Days, No Beer

Tue, 10 Jan 2006 18:23:51 GMT

That's five day in-a-row without beer. Two more to go. I'm getting a blood and urine test Thursday morning. This test will determine whether I get life insurance. I'm taking no chances.

Also, I've lost 7 pounds in those 5 days. Beer is heavy.

Suspend Beer

Sun, 08 Jan 2006 18:09:40 GMT

I'm a big fan of beer, but last week my insurance agent called me up to for warn me that they'll be requesting a blood and urine sample. In order to get a good sampling, I've switch to only 0.5% beer. It's been four days now. I'm pretty happy that I can turn off drinking beer, like a light-switch.

190 Pounds

Sat, 31 Dec 2005 20:29:31 GMT

During the Christmas feasts week, I broke 190 pounds for the first time this year. I've weighed in the high 190s in years past, but not this year, or at least till now. This makes my New Years resolution pretty easy to come up with. I'm gonna get below 180 pounds, so that next Christmas, after the feasts, I weigh only 185 pounds instead of 195. As a starter, I'm doing 10-20 sit-ups every morning.

Orange Juice

Sat, 31 Dec 2005 20:25:38 GMT

Beyond eating a lot of fish, curry and garlic, I've been pounded back the Orange Juice. On a workday, my morning includes 2-4 cups of coffee. On non-workdays, my morning includes 2-10 cups of O.J.

Fish, Curry and Garlic

Tue, 27 Dec 2005 21:02:23 GMT

In an attempt to eat better, I'm really stressing the foods that are known to make me more healthy; fish, curry and garlic. My kids love curried salmon fillets with fresh-cut potato fries. The recipe is simple. No garlic in this recipe.

  • Handful of Potato (slice into fries)
  • 2 frozen Salmon fillets
  • Margarine
  • Curry

Cooking Fries: Add lots of margarine to a frying pan to keep the fries from scarring. Add fries to pan and cover. Turn fries every minute or two. Add salt, pepper and parsley as desired.

Cooking Salmon: Add lots of margarine to a frying pan to keep the salmon from scarring. Sprinkle to cover entire exposed side of Salmon. Turn. Sprinkle again. Continue turning the fish and battering it with the margarine/curry.

Annual Infectionitous

Sun, 30 Oct 2005 15:32:40 GMT

On the eve of Halloween, my annual onset of ear and throat infections have set in. I've been very virulent this year in preparing for his, but I fear it's happening regardless. I keep my nose very clean, have been taking nightly ear-drops and Cold-FX. Frustrating!
