‘Totally bizarre!’ — nutritionists see red over study downplaying the serious health risks of red meat

The Annals of Internal Medicine published a report contradicting decades of growing consensus about the health risks of red meat.

Put down the T-bone and slowly back away from that side order of ribs. Nutritionists across the...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service has warned 46 states and the District of Columbia it cannot guarantee all ballots cast by mail for the November election will arrive in time to be counted, the Washington Post reported Friday.

Trump calls Dr. Fauci a ‘disaster’ — Fauci tells Americans: ‘Stay away from the politics’

President Donald Trump took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci Monday on a campaign call and on Twitter, calling him a “disaster” in a campaign call and bemoaning his media appearances, but the veteran immunologist told Americans to follow the scientific data, and to stay out of the political fray. “Every time he goes on television there’s always a bomb, but there’s a bigger bomb if you fire him,” Trump said, according to the Associated Press. Trump added, “People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots.” The president, 74, added, “He’s been here for 500 years.”“People are tired of hearing...

We must act now to prevent authoritarianism from going viral

NEW YORK (Project Syndicate) — “God and the people are the source of all power … I have taken it, and damn it, I will keep it forever,” in 1963. And so he did, remaining president until his death in 1971, whereupon he was succeeded by his son, Jean-Claude (“Baby Doc”), who extended the dictatorship another 15 years.This may seem like ancient history. But not to me. My family is Haitian, and though we immigrated to the United States during my childhood, we always seemed to remain within reach of the Duvaliers’ ruthless regime. I have never lost sight of the brutal lessons Haitians learned...
