Studies have shown that as many as 1 in 2 Americans have a health condition that qualifies as a pre-existing condition. While 1 in 2 is on the high side of a 2011 estimate done by HHS, it is generally accurate.
Diseases, conditions, and disorders are any health related issues that affect an organism.
We explain how to lose body fat from a scientific standpoint, and offer simple science-based advice on dieting, weight loss, and exercise.
Carbohydrates (especially simple ones like sugars) “spike” blood sugar (glucose) levels. This triggers insulin production, causes hunger, and primes the body for weight gain.
Fat can make you fat, but it isn’t the only thing that causes weight gain. Fat is high in calories and is easy to store as fat cells, but in general, it is storing more calories than you burn (from fat, carbs, or protein) that causes weight gain.
Studies have shown there is no single determinant of sex, gender, or sexuality. In terms of both sex (genetic) and gender (a social construct), a binary distinction of “male or female” fails to describe a wide range of humans in practice. Meanwhile, sexuality (a preference) eludes any simple categorization as well. Simply put, despite some binary aspects (for example a person either has a Y gene or they don’t), Gender, Sex, and Sexuality are all non-binary and each is instead a complex spectrum… and we can prove it with science and logic.
Not all Black Widows are deadly. The adult female Black Widow’s poison can be deadly, but male and juvenile Black Windows are essentially harmless.
Scientific research shows the body can remove toxins whether a person fasts or not. In fact, fasting has health risks as the body needs liquid, energy, vitamins, and minerals to detox.
Runners are actually at a lower risk for arthritis than non-runners. Obesity and repetitive kneeling or squatting increase the risk arthritis in knees.
Tripping is slang “for having a psychedelic experience”. Tripping isn’t a drug, it is a state of mind that some psychedelic drugs let us access.
Raw pasteurized eggs are safe to eat or drink, but there are slight risks of a salmonella illness, especially for the elderly, kids, and pregnant women.
