«If someone were to invent a perfectly safe ecstasy pill, what would be done about it? It’s the sort of scenario clubbers like to speculate about, usually at around 6am, a little the worse for wear after a big night out. It’s less common to hear it from a neuropsychopharmacologist and former government scientist – but it is, Professor David Nutt says earnestly, «the key question». So what does he think the government would do?
«They would ban it. They would find some pretext to ban it. I think they would, because beneath all their posturing about health lies a moral position where they don’t think young people should have fun, other than being drunk…»
«…He describes a truly surreal exchange with the then home secretary, Jacqui Smith, who told him: «You cannot compare the harms of an illegal activity with a legal one.» But don’t we need to compare the harms, he asked her, in order to see if something should be illegal? «And there was this long pause. And she said, ‘You can’t compare the harms of an illegal activity with a legal one.’ And this is the problem. Many politicians seem to think that once something is illegal, job done.

Jul :)

10 tips for å hanske med vektøkning fra julemat: En flott post fra Lyle McDonald med gode, praktiske tips. Viktigst av alt; nyt julematen! Et måltid er ikke nok til å ødelegge en diett.
1. Make Better Bad Choices
2. Take a Lowered Fat/Calorie Dessert or Dish to the Party
3. Train with a Bit Higher Volume Prior to the Event
4. Start with Lots of Lean Protein and Vegetables Before Hitting the Dessert Table
5. Have a High-Protein Snack with some Vegetables or Fruit about 30′ Beforehand
6. Consider Intermittent Fasting on the Day of the Event
7. Consider a Short Mini-Diet in the Days Before the Event
8. Ok, I Was Actually Kidding in the Introduction About the Tupperware
9. Stay Off the Damn Scale
10. Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy

8 kg ned, 8 kg opp: har dietten stått stille?
En flott artikkel av  Leigh Peele som går inn på opp-ned naturen av folk flest på diett, vann-vekt mm.
