Maybe. Maybe not:
There have been several studies to date transplanting gut flora from "skinny" rats and mice into "obese" rats and mice resulting in weight loss with the same diet composition. They have also showed the reverse to be true.
Furthermore there seems to be some evidence that sugar-alcohols and artificial sweeteners may be better food for the growth of bacteria that favors an obese phenotype.
(FWIW - I am a doctor (MD) but I am not an endocrinologist/obesity researcher)
Also the the realization that people are not built to nor adhere here the engineering specifications of an airplane. Every patient's anatomy, symptoms, disease processes etc..are relatively unique to them. There are several thing that work for checklists, but they aren't going to save the day.
Also, in some ways we are spoiled by modern medicine - what exactly is "routine" heart surgery. You have 1 pump in a system that has no backup or redundancy. How is altering that or taking it offline for repairs ever routine?
Medical errors are real. They are often not malignant or obvious at the time, hindsight is 20/20. In addition patients are older, sicker, fatter, and with more co-morbidities all while living longer with these chronic serious diseases then ever before.
It is a recipe for this.
I'm with you fuzzy..when life serves you corium you have to make coriumade.
This is a great point. More importantly, I would suggest a vast majority have no idea what "electromagnetic radiation" is and are ignorant to the fact that they are bathed in it, in this part of the spectrum - 2300-2400 MHz everywhere they go.
I completely understand why [...] most websites wouldn't want to have comments. I think 75% of the time they're more trouble than they're worth[...]
Yeah, well, at least fucking Slashdot still allows fucking comments. Can you imagine Slashdot without all our fucking insightful comments?
For the record - the president vetoes. The Congress passes bills or not. Trump and any president can submit whatever bills/ideas/threats to the Congress they want. Then, they can go to committee (after significant or no modification) or not, they can be voted on in committee (after significant or no modification) or not, they can be debated in Congress (after significant or no modification) or not, they can be voted on in Congress (after significant or no modification) or not.
So yeah, it is very hard to get things done in Congress.
An 'easier' answer, might bend the rules a little bit..... If you walked a mile to the south you would be 1 mi S. of equator. Then 1 mi W and you are still 1 mile S of equator. Then 1 mi N and you are again on the "exactly" on the equator - 0.
Just a thought.
Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.
