“The thalidomide tragedy was averted in the United States because Dr. Kelsey, alone and in the face of fierce opposition, did her job. …[N]o one else stopped it anywhere else until it was too late. Dr. Kelsey was the only person in the entire world who said no. She said no to a bad drug application, she said no to an overbearing pharmaceutical company and she said no to vested interests who put profits first. She was one brave dissenter. In the end, the question is not what made Frances Kelsey, but why aren't there more like her?”

This 2018 trial, funded by Virta Health, tested the impact of a high-compliance ketogenic diet on measures of liver health in Type 2 diabetics. Over one year, subjects saw significant improvements in measures of liver fat and fibrosis, with 61% of patients with abnormal ALT at baseline achieving ALT normalization. Among patients who showed significant weight loss and/or improvements in HbA1c, an even greater share achieved normal ALT levels. This trial suggests a ketogenic diet can significantly improve liver health in patients with Type 2 diabetes.

CrossFitters see physical education as a primary vehicle for teaching virtues essential for achievement. For us, the world of physical challenge and achievement have become metaphors for harvesting life’s riches and battling its plagues. As metaphors our efforts enlighten, instruct, encourage, and explain much of what is everywhere and dear to us. Fitness, ultimately, exercises and develops the will. Shakespeare said, “Our bodies are our gardens, to which our wills are gardeners.”

Monk Seashore

Monk on the Seashore, by Caspar David Friedrich

Facebook and its properties host and oversee a significant share of the marketplace of public thought. Facebook thus serves as a de facto authority over a worldwide exchange of information, as well as the security of millions of individuals and communities who entrust their ideas, work, and private data to this platform. This mandates a certain standard of good faith, transparency, and due process. A litany of publicly sourced complaints regarding Facebook’s principles and practices has called this standard into grave question. All activity on CrossFit, Inc.’s Facebook and Instagram accounts was thus suspended as of May 22, 2019.

CrossFit WOD 190513 challenged athletes to perform a 400-meter handstand walk in as few sets as possible (ASFAP). To calculate their final score for the workout, athletes multiplied their time in seconds by the number of sets they required to complete the distance. Congratulations to the two athletes with the lowest scores (one for men and one for women). Each has earned a $1,000 prize.

This 2018 trial, funded by Virta Health, tested the impact of a high-compliance ketogenic diet on cardiovascular and lipid outcomes in Type 2 diabetics. Over one year, during which subjects were largely compliant with the ketogenic diet, 262 subjects in aggregate saw significant shifts away from atherogenic dyslipidemia via lipoprotein profile. This trial suggests the vast majority of diabetic subjects do not see an increase in cardiovascular risk and may see a decrease, depending on the specific markers used to assess risk.
