>>7848443 Yes, but sugar will make you obese, no matter how much you eat. Don't worry, though. Amylase isn't real, so starch and carbohydrates won't make you fat as easily! Just avoid all sugar at all costs, unless it's in fruit because then it's a totally different type of sucrose which is objectively good for you, no matter how much you eat!
>>7848489 well "her body, her choice" is a usually a pro-choice argument people who use this as their main/only argument would by extension have to advocate for decriminilization of all drugs because "my body, my choice" but i find it hard to believe that people who make that argument would feel comfortable about taking that logical step.
>>7848595 Well in the definition of laws against minors, it is generally regarded that the minor cannot consent to the act.knowing the full details. Just like they can't vote, or take out a loan. People advocate that children who are taught sex-ed know these ramifications and should be allowed to make decisions for themselves. >Read: a perversion of the true intent of the law
>>7848617 Take any commodity and open it up to importation without the ability to sustain it on domestic soil and see what happens. See oil, opium in china, gold, diamonds, silk etc. Columbia would be able to flood and starve the market, throw in a little tax deficit and the US would be willing to go to war.
>>7846228 Rajeet here, drinking shit water. Been living in UK for a decade now, and all we get is processed sewage. There are constant excess amounts of copper in water, that is used to kill off various things. Stopped drinking tap water, and that was the only thing I changed, about a year ago. All the allergies I developed when I moved here have instantly disappeared.
>>7848935 Well there are currently over 12000 articles on second hand smoke on Pubmed. Pretty much all of them seem to agree that second hand smoke isn't exactly healthy, particularly when concerning kids. It's hardly a meme.
Not all smokers (first- or second hand) develop health problems, but the proportion of respiratory issues in smokers is a lot higher than in non-smokers.
>>7848672 Salt is not inherently bad but it depends on the concentration. Particularly if you have cardiac issues you should avoid too much salt. Same for fats, although trans fats are usually bad for you (in particular, they have very few benefits but a lot of risks).
>>7848920 Not really. They're 98% effective as contraceptives, but in terms of HIV, the efficacy is much lower. The scientific community still hasn't come to an overall consensus on their true efficacy, but the generally accepted lower and upper bounds are 70% and 95% respectively. 80% seems to be the most widely accepted statistic. The reason for their low efficacy is simple - HIV virions are much smaller than spermatozoa, therefore can fit through microtears in the condom that spermatozoa can't. Still, we can all agree that condoms are pretty much useless in protecting against HSV.
