Are eggs good or bad for diabetes?
Outside COVID-19 very little health news catches the attention of newspapers, unless it is something out of the ordinary.
One such news item was the result from an observational study among Chinese citizens of whom it was reported how those eating more eggs had a higher risk of diabetes 2.
Oh boy, here we go again was my first thought. First eggs were vilified due to their cholesterol content, and now that nonsense has been put to rest [link], they try to come up with another BS research. Yes, calling it BS.
Imagine, you are a notorious smoker and decide to give up smoking because your lungs are suffering and have developed COPD. Yet, it is too late and a lung tumour has been detected. Guess what? The clickbait headlines would go like "people that give up smoking, will develop lung cancer!".
That's how it works! Time and again we have to repeat: correlation is NOT the same as causation. This was an observational study, in which people were asked about their habits.
A much better research method is a clinical study in which people are meticulously followed after treatment.
Or a meta study in which several studies are lumped together and analysed.
Tips and tricks to keep your house cool without airconditioning
After having survived the hottest two weeks of the past century, and hearing about the deliberate choice to switch of the power in some areas of California as it became impossible to match the demand for electricity, due to the massive use of airconditioning, this week's topic had to be about how to keep your house and yourself cool without needing to rely on energy-guzzling airconditioning.
Particulate matter and your healthAs the Dutch government decided to move away from natural fossilized energy sources, we are moving towards solar and wind energy.
Because solar and wind energy cannot provide all energy and a decision to also move away from natural gas, biomass plants seemed to be the perfect solution.
Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production (electricity or heat). It can be purposely grown energy crops, wood or forest residues, waste from food crops (wheat straw), horticulture (yard waste), food processing (corn cobs), animal farming (manure, rich in nitrogen and phosphorus), or human waste from sewage plants.
Burning plant-derived biomass releases CO2, but it has still been classified as a renewable energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks because photosynthesis cycles the CO2 back into new crops. In some cases, this recycling of CO2 from plants to atmosphere and back into plants can even be CO2 negative, as a relatively large portion of the CO2 is moved to the soil during each cycle.
However, over the past few months it has become clear how a lot of biomass comes from trees, that were previously pristine forests in the USA or the Baltics.
While in the best case, the use of biomass could even be CO2 negative, burning biomass will result in excessive CO2 output locally as well as of particulate matter.
This is why almost overnight, due to negative public opinion, politicians changed their mind. Too late though, there are already few hundred biomass plants that are being constructed due to substantial subsidies that were handed out, so we can expect a substantial worsening of air quality in the upcoming decade(s) because of the increased amount of particulate matter.
What causes night blindness?People with night blindness experience poor vision at night or in dimly lit environments, for which the medical term nyctalopia is used.
Although the term “night blindness” implies that you can’t see at night, this isn’t the case. You may just have more difficulty seeing or driving in darkness.
Some types of night blindness are treatable while other types aren’t. Once you know the cause of the problem, you can take steps to correct your vision.
