Why medical science often gets it wrong

Why medical science often gets it wrong one gazette -- or even a multitude of papers; it's an ongoing process and one that often involves conflicting findings, as sports medicine researcher and science blogger Travis Saunders suggested recently on the blog he co-authors, Obesity Panacea.

Blame Farm Subsidies, Not Nutritionists, For America's Obesity Problem

Blame Farm Subsidies, Not Nutritionists, For America's Obesity Problem While harsh out subsidies wouldn't be a panacea for the obesity issue, it would certainly ameliorate some of the systemic phoneyness and perversity that has made us overweight.

Childhood physical activity – how does your country stack up?

Yesterday saw the release of the Global Matrix on Childhood Physical Activity  from the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance.  Essentially, the matrix is a report card on childhood physical activity for 38 different countries.

So how do the countries stack up?

Generally speaking, it was Slovenia and Zimbabwe leading the pack.  Slovenia (A-) New Zealand (B-) Zimbabwe (C+) had the highest overall scores for physical activity, while the Netherlands (A) and Zimbabwe (A-) did best on active transporation.  The top grades for sedentary behaviour were Slovenia (B+), Kenya (B) and Zimbabwe (B).  As we saw with the first global matrix released in 2014, developed countries like the USA, Canada and Australia tend to do well on factors related to the community and built environment, but do less well on actual levels of activity and sedentary behaviour.

The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance has a great interactive website that allows you to compare grades across countries, or do a deep dive on any particular country.  As you might expect, some comparisons are more useful than others. As was pointed out on Twitter , higher levels of active transportation in developing countries might be driven by necessity, rather than a policy choice that more developed nations could choose to implement.  However, one useful thing about the matrix is that it includes countries from 6 continents, and you can also filter grades by things like income and inequality, if you want to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples.

Conservatives, as part of your quest to end illegal immigration and government intervention in markets...?

would you support abolishing the subsidies to big agribusiness? The Mexican farmers can't compete and it wrecks the Mexican economy, incentivizing immigration to the USA by any means necessary. Get rid of the subsidies, the illegal immigrants either


Yes. The government isn't here to subsidize anything. Its here to protect our borders and enforce our laws. Our government currently does very little of either.


Can't support that, sorry.
