Good way to start a protein diet?
Talk to your doctor and get professional medical advice that is rooted in your individual needs and history.
The Internet is a good place to get new recipes and research the protein content of different foods, but any major changes to your diet or lifestyle need to be discussed with a professional. Don't put your trust in random bloggers who have no qualifications in nutrition.

Free Safer Sex Kit (Including Emergency Contraception)
July 27, 2021
Sister Reach is distributing a free safer sex kit to anyone in the US who requests one. You pick what it includes, and the options are condoms, dental dams, lube, a mask, hand sanitizer, and emergency contraception.
If you use condoms as your only method of preventing pregnancy it is a good idea to keep emergency contraception on hand in case a condom breaks. Emergency contraception works better the sooner you take it.
Even if you do not need any of the items offered or live outside of the US please feel welcome to reblog this post so that someone who can use it can find out about it.

Japanese researchers have been developing a new kind of drug treatment for dementia, and after years of preclinical work, they’re ready to begin human clinical trials in the next year. The treatment candidate, a novel therapeutic molecule called SAK3, was declared safe by Japan’s governing board. In experiments with mice,...

✨Summer Strong Challenge Day 9✨
Flexing from the floor!! Trying to fit arm workouts in between physio, everything’s been so focussed on my legs recently and I want those sweet biceps back in top shape 💪 Forgot how tiring working out after work and a full commute is though haha
Day 9 (7/27): how can you tell you are having a good day? Do you do anything differently? Is there a way you can do these things every day?
Good days for me involve lots of chatting, singing and making plans!! I get really energised by being around people and seek out exciting things because I get all hyped up. I’m 100% the person to go to with weird spontaneous plans 🔥👍
It’s obviously tough to have good days every day, but I know that the best things for me are 1) getting enough sleep (if I’m too tired then I really struggle to make sense to people and connect the way I want to) and 2) saying yes to plans! It’s not difficult to convince me anyway, but especially after the last year of lockdown I sometimes get a little nervous and try to shut things down for no reason. Now I just need to find more silly impulsive people to join me for trips 🥰

Hi! Can you do something for me?
Relax your shoulders. Let them fall down. Now tense them up for a moment really hard. And relax again. Use your hand to massage them gently
Relax your jaw. Open your mouth, stick out your toungue. Let your mouth hang open for a bit. Now puff your cheeks. Relax your jaw again
Relax your neck. Move your had side to side slightly. Stretch your neck muscles a little
Relax your arms. Let them fall by your sides. Wiggle them! Now stretch them a little
Take a deep breath. Hold it for a moment. Breathe out
Straighten your back. Tense it up for a little. Relax
OKAY THANK YOU AND BYEEE

A Story of Two Chest X-Rays
One patient with a vaccine and one patient without. Version 2—for the crowd that wants specifics without violating patient privacy (these are published cases).
The top picture is of a 47-year-old man who received the Pfizer vaccine and developed COVID19 2 weeks after. He was overweight (BMI = 29), but without any known comorbidities. He had a runny nose, mild body aches, mild cough. His chest X-ray is relatively normal.
The bottom picture is a 50-year-old active female patient without obesity and not on medications. Her chest X-ray shows diffuse opacities, consolidations in both lungs with lung damage (all the fluffy white), and a pattern that looks like the worst feared complication of COVID19—acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). She needed intubation, mechanical ventilation, and ECMO (extra-corporal membrane oxygenation) – the most life support we can offer.
The mRNA vaccines are effective at preventing severe disease and death— even with the Delta variant. ICUs are starting to fill up with COVID19 patients again. This post was to emphasize that the vaccines are ~95% effective at preventing case 2 from happening. Of course, there are also mild cases of COVID in unvaccinated individuals.
Black lung tissue on the X-Ray is where the oxygen you breathe in gets into the blood. All the fluffy white is where the oxygen cannot get into your blood because of infection/inflammation, that’s essentially what ARDS is and the goal of mechanical ventilation/ECMO is to protect that damaged lung tissue and get the oxygen into your bloodstream and to your brain, heart and other organs.

What Does It Mean to Adopt a "Plant-Based Diet"?
As plant-based diets have become more popular, an overwhelming number of people have begun to recognize the good influence a plant-based diet has on not only health but also many other aspects of life. For many of us, the first thing that springs to mind when we hear the term plant-based diet is vegetarianism. That's where you're mistaken! Continue on to uncover why plant-based doesn't have to imply plant-only!
Plant-based foods was said to have taken over the market. It was the year 2020 that everyone was said to have found plant-based, with new items on the market ranging from bakery and pastries to pizza, lattes, and even filthy burgers. As manufacturers prepare to go public, these other sectors are said to be finding a niche by concentrating on an untapped plant-based food market that is nutritious, simple, hearty, and shareworthy.
As customers become more experimental and interested about plant-based foods, you could be able to differentiate yourself from the competition by doing things differently. Development could originate from a multitude of sources, such as new-to-market ingredients or consumer-influencing cuisines. Health could continue to rule our lives and with this powerful impact, plant-based has the ability to achieve true breakthrough. Spice up your diet by switching to plant-based products that could be beneficial to your health without becoming a vegetarian suddenly. See if you could take advantage of what this narrative has to offer. Check disclaimer on profile and landing page.

As a healthcare worker who has the authority to grant exemptions from wearing a mask, I just want to say this:
Everyone should want to wear a mask. Like yeah they’re slightly uncomfortable, but we’ve dealt with that for a year and a half. I wear one for 8 hours a day, every day, and I barely notice it now.
Unless you have a severe respiratory illness (like end-stage emphysema), a mask will not affect your breathing.
And unless you have a debilitating mental illness (like panic disorder), being anxious in a mask isn’t really a good excuse not to wear one.
You should want to protect your friends and loved ones.
You should want to protect strangers.
You should want to do your part to help bring the pandemic to an end.
And if you find a mask uncomfortable or unpleasant, then go out and find a more suitable mask, or just learn to live with it. Because you should want to help people in your community, and they should want to help you.
