The last post had interesting remarks & comments. It was a fine example of free speech. I've chewed on a wide variety of newspapers, (remember those?) magazines & trade journals across several continents in several languages. As a result, I don't believe free speech is best exercised before disagreements commence. This is the one MASSIVE advantage websites, weblogs and internet forums provide; reader discussions. Often good & revealing —even if too high a price to pay— is the censorship & shutdowns certain "service providers" impose when they cannot accept different ideas. Remarks & comments are edited & erased, including videos, channels and even entire platforms.
During the recent give & take of reader comments here, the topic of timelines came up. Let's explore that, along with a Q&A session on vaccines, in the attached post. First a reader question for The Committee:
"Mr Magoo" (yes, that's the name used to send the anonymous question, and in case it isn't immediately familiar [i.e. you're not a baby boomer American or Canadian] Mr. Magoo is a fictional cartoon character created in 1949, an elderly, well off, short-statured retiree alumnus of the same college from which I graduated [Rutgers] who becomes entangled in comical situations because of strong near-sightedness and stubborn refusal to admit problems. [This sounds like the same male menopause syndrome which has affected yours truly, except I'm not near sighted and prefer a different style of hat]) asks:
I've been reading about retired football (soccer) players increasingly being diagnosed with dementia due to repeatedly heading the ball over a long career. Would The Committee have any nutritional advice that we can use to prevent dementia and other neurological conditions please?
C: "All sports with cranial impacts can bring about brain conditions, boxing the most common, American football next, then hockey then rugby besides football played all over Earth. Our advice is more than nutritional; avoiding head impacts and sports which involve them, is our first recommendation, then maintain good health overall. Lowered blood pressure is ideal; avoidance, prevention and cures for hypertension are already well known by human medical science.
For diet we recommend reduction of inflammation from regular consumption of oils, olive and other pressed, but not chemically extracted ones, nuts, ginger, garlic, onion, turmeric, hot pepper, green leafy vegetables of all types and fresh, unprocessed fruits, again of a wide variety & assortment of both. Low, infrequent consumption of alcohol, sugars and chemically processed foods of any type, is also ideal. Brown, whole grain versus bleached rice or flour are two among many examples. These foods and ingredients will have general health benefit far beyond prevention or reduction of dementia. Exercise is also ideal for dementia prevention, and can be a big contributor.
Many humans include progressive decline of cognitive and mental acuity in their life plan, such as now afflicts the forty sixth USA president. The onset of this condition is not a guarantee, unless the human life plan has included this condition as an absolute event, in spite of all incarnated efforts against it. Remember always, life and birth both bring about fatal consequences. Live excitement as soon and as long as possible."
