This is Tuesday , not Friday! haha  Is this a joke?  Actually I think it could be true!  My sister and I believe that T2 diabetes is also spread like cancer( we have never said a word about that belief tho cause we knew everyone would laugh)......virus yes.

Not a joke.  This was on the new yesterday.  A real scientific study.

I HATE these kinds of studies.  So, wow, 30% of obese people had this virus, and only 11% of normal weighted people did, how many other data sets can you find like this?  Suppose obese people are more susceptible to contracting this virus?  Guess the researchers never considered that possibility.

Wonder who paid for this research?  There is no more profitable enterprise in the world than modern industrial food production, pay farmeres a few bucks a bushel for grain, a few pennies for high fructose corn syrup, and a few more pennies to chemical companies, and you can produce 'heart healthy, low fat foods' that will add pounds to the gullible public.  No people on earth become obese who do not also eat refined carbohydrates.  This should be so obvious by now, that one has to wonder if any of the 'authorities' are not so tainted by financial incentives, that they cannot be independent experts to further the public health.  If people would give up refined carbohydrates, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes would cease being epidemic diseases, and go back to where they were at the beginning of the 20th century when we weren't consuming but a fraction of today's intake of refined carbohydrates.

Could you computer techies in this board tell me what this actually  means?   I have a Macbook.  It tells me when sites I go to are " Not supplying identity information"  and my connnection is not encrypted.......so information sent over this site is able to be seen by other people.....  now that tells me that it is not affiliated with Joslin at all cause they would not allow that!@!!! Right?

 

I do not usually go to sites that are not encrypted....certainly do not put any info on them that could be stolen......ugh!  Help me here...I am starting to feel my blood sugar rise.

I think information is typically only encrypted when it is credit card, bank account, or the like. For example when you book an air flight the pages typically are not encrypted until you get to the one where you enter your personal information and credit card data.

At least I think that is the way it works.

The vast majority of sites are unencrypted.  As Ron mentioned, encription is used to protect credidt card information etc.  This (Joslin) isn't encrypted, but your personal information is only available to you and the webmaster.  I suppose a hacker could get in, but why bother?  The other part of the message could mean that you are not using an encrypted network.  You should always use encription to secure your hoome network, especially wireless networks.  Hardwired networks are behind two firewalls, the router/modem used and you computer.  Most public wi-fi sites are not encrypted (like Starbucks, etc.) are not encrypted and you should never send any private data, even to secure sites, on an unencrypted wireless network.  I'll bet you are using a wireless network to accesss the internet with your Macbook and you did not set up your wireless network with incryption.
