Mice With Disabled Gene That Helps Turn Carbs Into Fat Stay Lean Despite Feasting On High-carb Diet

“Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have identified a gene that plays a critical regulatory role in the process of converting dietary carbohydrates to fat. In a new study, they disabled this gene in mice, which consequently had lower levels of body fat than their normal counterparts, despite being fed the equivalent of an all-you-can-eat pasta buffet. . . “

(Or you could just eat less carbs and not have the side effects from turning the gene off or the carb consumption. -jj)

    Sorry for the loss. It made my stomach hurt when I heard the news. I lowered the Flag to half staff today and I hate doing that. Prayers and comfort for the famlies.

    From the Defender’s Creed

    “I accept that I am a pariah among some of my countrymen, and a
    quaint anachronism to others. I will not hold their ignorance against them.
    I will win, or die trying.
    I swear this creed before God, my family and my fellow citizens.”

    I can only hope that should the choice come, that there would be no choice at all.

    God bless these men and all who run TOWARD the sound of the bullets and the heat of the fire.

    Another dot on the radar that there is no such thing as a harmless recreational drug. God Bless these officers, and I pray that His hand is on the families of these men in the aftermath of this senseless act. I also pray that justice is served on earth in addition to the Judgment that is to come in eternity. God, do your thing!

    This is horrible…after all the news and all the outrage, these families will have to go on.

    The children will have to go on without their fathers and parents will have to go on without their sons. Wives will have to go on without their husbands. For the rest of their lives.

    All so we can live in safe communities. There can never be enough gratitude.
