Rest Day

Post thoughts to comments.

On June 20, 2019, CrossFit, Inc. filed a renewed motion for terminating sanctions against the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in the Southern District Court of California. CrossFit’s renewed motion for terminating sanctions, filed after years of litigation and forensic investigation, puts the NSCA’s systemic corruption on full display — corruption that pervades the highest levels of the association’s academic and organizational leadership.

“Given the strong evidence for a direct role of physical activity in the prevention of insulin resistance, and the fact that exercise training increases mitochondrial biogenesis and improves glucose tolerance and insulin action in individuals with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, the question of why such a potent modulator of these conditions is not more commonly prescribed is perplexing and should be of utmost concern to medical health care professionals worldwide. To continue to attack the growing health burden by investing almost exclusively in strategies that target secondary and tertiary treatment of chronic disease states (i.e. pharmaceutical interventions) is extremely short sighted: primary defence mechanisms (i.e. exercise/diet and lifestyle interventions) will decrease disease prevalence by preventing these conditions in the first place!”

"Cholesterol and its derivatives are important constituents of cell membranes, and precursors of other steroid compounds. But it has been associated with increased risks of heart and blood vessel diseases. The warnings against cholesterol were so intense that they created a new medical diagnosis: ‘You have high cholesterol!’ It now turns out that it was indeed one great big hoax. In due course, Big Pharma extracted some $2 trillion from consumers in the name of ‘cholesterol-lowering treatment.'"

By the 1980s, the diet-heart hypothesis had become widely accepted both by the scientific community and the general public, influencing the national nutrition recommendations in the U.S. and U.K. Here, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick highlights a key book and important meta-analysis that sought to demonstrate the existing scientific evidence did not support the hypothesis, despite its widespread acceptance.
