Whizzkey, Fat Loss Rings, & The Truth about Cholesterol…Becoming Mainstream?

Now that thanksgiving is over and done with, the air is abuzz with commercialism for the rest of the year…so here are some gifts you may find interesting!

Up first is a “fat loss ring” that works by “balancing” the body. Choose where you want to lose fat merely by ring placement! Probably the cheapest weight loss gimmick a person can buy this holiday season!

On the upside, probably the cheapest weight loss gimmick out there (found on Reddit)!

For you whiskey lovers, how about some holiday whiskey from…urine? James Gilpin of Gilpin Family Whisky uses the urine from diabetics to distill his own brand of whisky. From his site:

Large amounts of sugar are excreted on a daily basis by type-two diabetic patients especially amongst the upper end of our aging population. As a result of this diabetic patients toilets often have unusual scale build up in the basin due and rapid mould growths as the sugar put into the system acts as nutrients for mould and bacteria growth. Is it plausible to suggest that we start utilizing our water purification systems in order to harvest the biological resources that our elderly already process in abundance?

These whiskeys actually aren’t for sale, rather James Gilpin uses them as teaching material to try and spread the awareness of diabetes complications. TheFatNurse like!

Speaking of things TheFatNurse likes…check out this new piece on cholesterol from yahoo health!

When it comes to rating your risk for a fatal heart attack, the least important cholesterol number is your level of LDL (bad) cholesterol. In fact, life insurance actuaries don’t even look at LDL levels, because large studies show it’s the worst predictor of heart attack risk.

Wow! This sort of info in a mainstream media source!? Are things changing!?

If you’ve been following TheFatNurse you’ll know that Cholesterol holds a special place in TheFatNurse’s heart (hehehe non-intended pun there). Be sure to check out TheFatNurse’s cholesterol comics if you haven’t seen them yet!
