This Is Why Stairs Can Leave You Out of Breath | Psychology Today
"Humans (and many of our closest animal relatives) tend to stop or slow their breathing when concentrating on a specific task for a short period of time."

I always thought that was just a quirk of mine - when I focus on a tough task on the computer, usually. Good to know it's a normal, human thing.

12 Health Myths We Need to Stop Believing
Every one of these has a nugget of truth, but is so far off the mark as to be dangerous. Slide by slide critiques:

1) Not sure about this one, but Vitamin C megadoses aren't for curing colds, they're for something else that I think I read in either Deep Nutrition or heard on Dr. Gary Null (which could be quakery, considering he's a hardcore vegan)

2) They told the truth, but not the whole truth. They fail to mention that vegetables oils are toxic.

3) "Wiht few exceptions, dietary supplements are generally unnecessary." - true, but it's better to take them than not if you are eating a shit diet. Also, Vitamin D megadoses are absolutely necessary.

4) fine

5) fine

6) "you can't detox" and "you don't need an expensive green juice to do it" - actually you do. You should be blending your vegetables and eating them raw as much as possible. Fiber helps neutralize free radicals from vegetable oil and other sources.

7) "exercise is great for your body and your health, but evidence is mounting that it has little to nothing to do with your ability to lose significant weight and keep it off." - yes, but if you are only worried about weight, you are looking at the wrong thing. Exercise, even if you stay fat, is something you MUST do on a daily basis.

8 - 11) fine

12) there's actually a study out of Norway (I think) that disputes this. It's not a firm yes, but I would still recommend using phones on speaker and not sleeping with them by your head

13) fine

Lift Weights, Eat More Protein, Especially if You’re Over 40 - The New York Times
"The researchers also looked for the sweet spot for protein intake, which turned out to be about 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. In practical terms, that would amount to about 130 grams of protein a day for a 175-pound man. (A chicken breast has about 45 grams of protein.)"

"That advice holds especially true for middle-aged and older weight trainers, he says, almost none of whom were getting the ideal amount of protein in these studies and who, presumably in consequence, tended to show much smaller gains in strength and muscle size than younger people."

House-cleaning, walking to work, staves off death: study
"One in 12 global deaths over a five-year period can be prevented through 30 minutes of physical activity -- which can include house-cleaning or walking to work -- five days a week, researchers said Friday.

"Being highly active (750 minutes a week) is associated with an even greater reduction," according to a study published in The Lancet medical journal.

The study, which tracked 130,000 people in 17 countries, "confirms on a global scale that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease," the authors said in a press statement."

I like the comment the one guy made about these things being supernormal stimuli. "Modern food products have divorced flavor from nutrition. In the same way,Video games have divorced thrill from physicality Pornography divorces sexual pleasure from relationships Modern fitness and sports culture divorces fitness and specialized skills from overall movement capacity freeform play and nature.

How to make sure your boys never get picked on while riding the bus : gifs
Read the comments, seems these are brothers from Romania and they have a myostatin deficiency which means they lack muscle growth inhibitor, so they have maximum muscle mass at all times. The only "complication" is that they have to eat a lot of calories every day. This is all taken from the comments, so it could be totally off.

5 moves you should avoid at the gym
"Deep squats put significant strain on the knee ligaments, significant pressure on your patellofemoral joint (knee cap), and it puts your meniscus at significant risk for tearing." <----- Now, tell me. On what planet does avoiding something make you stronger at it? Use it or lose it. This avoidance mentality is dumb. ......................

Natural Training
I have been reading some bizarre (although entertaining) statements about the spine via the good old "grapevine" we call Facebook. I am always amazed how much strength the "straight spine is a strong spine" mantra still has. If we are to make any sense of this "debate", we need to attempt to remove as much subjectivity from the discussion as possible...this means take a step back and get a broader perspective from an evolutionary standpoint. In other words, "loads, loading, high impact, etc..." are secondary variables because they are DERIVED from evolutionary ........... " If the spine needs to be "neutral" or fixed during movement...why is it engineered with an inordinate amount of articular displacement and potential?"

Your Fat Is Why You're Not As Bright As You Could Be | Co.Exist | ideas impact
"obese mice did poorly on mouse-sized cognitive tests, presumably because the interleukin 1 was clogging things up. But the study didn't end there. The researchers wanted to make sure that it was the extra fat cells--and not something else--causing the disturbing brain changes in the mice. .................................. Upon removing fat from the obese mice in a mini-liposuction procedure, the critters scored highly on the same thinking and memory tests they struggled with previously, and the interleukin 1 virtually disappeared from their bloodstreams. When the researchers put fat pads inside thin mice, those previously svelte rodents started doing worse than they had previously on cognitive tests."

How to Lose Belly Fat: Tips for a Flatter Stomach
I once bookmarked an article that went in-depth with the British study mentioned here, but for some reason I can't find it. "It's also about physical activity. Visceral fat likes inactivity. A British study showed that thin people who maintain their weight through diet alone, skipping exercise, are more likely to have unhealthy levels of visceral fat."

counterintuitive = She talks about diets doing more harm than good throughout the talk, but at 11:00, she specifically says it. .................... cognitive-load = As one of the comments says: "Will power is limited and gets exhausted when the attention is distracted." That in itself sums up her talk and this line can be used in any walk of life.
