Instant noodles: Heart disease in a cup?
lohud.com 2014/08/21
The study, published in The Journal of Nutrition, found that eating instant noodles two or more times a week was associated with cardiometabolic syndrome, a disorder that can raise the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
Mary Gocke, director of nutrition at the Blum Center for Health in Rye Brook.
The preservatives in most containers of instant noodles — combined with their packaging, usually in styrofoam cups — creates a “perfect storm” that can have a serious impact on the body, says Gocke, a registered dietitian. “Besides being carcinogens, they’re neurotoxic, and on top of that they’re endocrine disruptors” ...more...

Loser Day parade for 69th anniversary of Japan’s surrender in World War II

I love how Japan’s loony right-wing celebrates Loser Day (Surrender of Japan) with a giant cosplay parade.

Right-wing cosplayers visit Tokyo’s controversial Yasukuni shrine to commemorate Japan’s surrender in World War II on August 15, 2014 on the 69th anniversary of Japan’s surrender in World War II.

Charged up in Tokyo


An important thing to notice is that when its available, electric charging is free at parking lots in Kanto/the Greater Tokyo Area. It just to much hassle to meter the electricity delivered and add that tiny cost to already substantial parking fees in Tokyo.

With judicious planning—there’s an app for that—a person with a plug-compatible electric car could avoid ever having to buy “fuel.”

For example, my local IKEA and my ward office offer free charging stations in their parking lots as do most of the larger expressway rest stops. Refer to the charging station information at: ev.gogo.gs

When I buy a new car, it would be stupid not buy a full EV/Electric Vehicle since I could charge up an EV with my carport’s rooftop solar cells—ZERO “fuel” costs, W0ot!
