Disease-modifying properties of long-term lithium treatment for amnestic mild cognitive impairment: randomised controlled trial. - PubMed - NCBI

How Animal Welfare Leads to Better Meat: A Lesson From Spain

There is a lot of debate about the amount and type of meat that should be included in a healthy diet. Some say none, others say plenty but skip the carbs. Despite the hundreds of thousands of words written on this subject and voluminous 'research', I could not find a single study comparing diets made up of different quality of meat. Not type (red vs. white) or quantity, but diet and lifestyle quality of the animals we depend on for food. A results of a diet full of factory raised and processed chickens and pork might differ dramatically from those of humanely raised and organically fed animals. We can't prove it but it is kinder for everyone, makes sense and to quote a frequently used trope by comedian Bill Maher, "I just know that it is true". Spain's stress-free Ibérico pigs produce healthier, tastier ham—and modern food science explains why

Oral Nicotinamide Prevents Common Skin Cancers in High-Risk Patients, Reduces Costs

If you have had skin cancer, vitamin B3 (niacinamide) may prevent recurrence.

The prevention of common skin cancers and precancers is possible by taking an inexpensive, widely available, oral pill twice daily. The pill—the vitamin B3 supplement called nicotinamide—cut the rate of new squamous-cell and basal-cell skin cancers by 23% compared with placebo after 1 year among...
