I've sometimes been getting mod points before I even finish using up the ones I have.

I've only ever got 5 at a time, but otherwise have had the same experience as you more than once. This is basically why you see me about 50 posts from me over 2 days, and then nothing for the rest of the week.

I prefer to answer back rather than downmod, but I make an exception for a certain AC purveyor of host files and right-wing nuttiness whenever the opportunity presents itself. (Reasons.)

The review, published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, looked at 37 studies. Seven of them were randomized trials, covering about 1,000 people, and the rest were observational studies that tracked the health and habits of almost 406,000 people over time.

Emphasis mine, on the part you left out.

Comment Re:Drink filtered water (Score 3, Interesting) 364 can drop 2 slices of cucumber into a pitcher of water and it gives the whole thing a nice refreshing flavor.

They do that a lot in restaurants here (Stockholm). It actually tastes just fine. Of course, so does a slice or two of lemon, lime, or orange.
