Exercise First Thing in the Morning

Read an article in the local paper a few weeks ago (now 6 Mar 2003) claiming that vigorous exercise first thing after rising (5 minutes of jumping jacks) followed by a fairly hearty / healthy breakfast prevented your body from metabolizing the protein in the muscles you may have worked hard to build.

Interesting idea - and makes a lot of sense. (-- PeterMasiar - 12 Mar 2003)

Value of Food

A different article in the same local paper, but several weeks earlier talked about some better way of rating the fattening value of food -- was it glycemes or something like that? (Probably not, I have no substantial recollection of what it was.)

Dirtiness Is Next to Godliness?

Randy, this is misleading. Other research shows that asthma could be a result of many small attacks. So children with many small ilnesses succeptible to asthma will get it later in life. When lifespan was short, it was not a problem (old will just die out whae cannon breathe), and also will procreate less. Asthma, of course, is hereditary.

Are you asthmatic? Many people in my family are (including me and my wife), with different severity. I plan for a long time to start a wiki about asthma - cannot get it going frown

-- PeterMasiar

Hmm, I still suspect that exposure to germs and viruses can build your immunity, but certainly with limits, and is probably only helpful if you are healthy enough to repel most of the attacks.

I've never been diagnosed with asthma (and don't think I have it), but I have a lot of allergies that cause headaches and difficulty with breathing at times.

Hmm, if you want to start a wiki, consider two things:

  • Write to PeterThoeny and ask if he'd be willing to create an Asthma web on twiki.org, or

  • Wait for me to (or help me) get my TWiki set up on a new hosting site, and I'd be happy to set up an Asthma web.
