Traditional Southern diet, stroke
may be linked, researcher says

Los Angeles Times, by Mary MacVean

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 2/7/2013 9:05:35 PM

Traditional Southern diets may be linked to a higher risk of stroke, a researcher said at a conference on Thursday. The lead researcher, Suzanne Judd, a nutritional epidemiologist at the University of Alabama, said her study is the first large-scale effort to look at stroke and a diet of such foods as fried chicken and fish, bacon, ham and sweet teas. “Fatty foods are high in cholesterol, sugary drinks are linked to diabetes and salty foods lead to high blood pressure,” Judd said in a statement. Those are all factors in the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Sure hit all the bases, didn´t she?

Duh, no [expletive deleted], Sherlock. This is a diet for the turn-of-the-century sharecropper.

In twenty-first century America, you better be bustin´ your butt all day if you plan to eat like this. Or have a well-worn gym membership card.

But culinary tradition dies hard. I know. Most of my family has Southern roots. We try to keep it to one day a week, but sometimes... well, you know.

Nutritional epidemiologist? Is that a joke?

This physician says eat whatever you want, just not so much of it. Get a little exercise and don´t smoke.

The vast majority of our illnesses are self inflicted. Nearly all the medicines we take are unnecessary. Most of our dollars spent on "prevention" are a waste.

Suzanne Judd needs to stop picking on fried chicken because it is delicious.

Another fake science piece of liberal trash served up by California liberals.
Southern dishes keep alive our glorious heritage, and nourish our traditional American values.
How dare anyone pass judgment on what I or my family decides to put on our table! This is yet another sign of Obamawannajihad trying to take control of real American´s lives.
In protest, I´ve prepared fried chicken, biscuits, redeye gravy, hoppin john and collard greens. For dessert we are going to smoke a carton of cigarettes and a eat a whole velvet cake.
Take that skinny liberals.. I hope all thier heads explode!

As opposed to those who live on a fast food diet ?

Let´s see . . . 75 years as a happy, God-fearing, gun-shooting, well fed, food lovin´ southerner (well, actually, Texan - there´s a difference) vs. 85 years of tight lipped, arugula-eating, democrat-voting, baby-killing, liberal-zombi-ing, miserable liberal - I think the choice is obvious. Heaven will be here for me 10 years earlier than hell will come for you. Skanky-yankee wannabe.

Sounds like the latest chapter in the left´s war on the south.I guess this idiot thinks everyone north of the Mason/Dixon line are healthy eaters and don´t cost the government a dime in healthcare costs.

All the things this woman talks about are conventional wisdom things that´s been around for years. There´s things taken as truth because they´ve been repeated so many times. Everybody´s body is different and tolerates different things at different levels.

I´ve been smoking over 40 years and according to health wisdom,I should have been dead before I was born.You know every cigarette takes 10 minutes off your life.The left says second hand smoke kills people,yet we see Chinese in absolute horrible smog conditions,still walking around.

Somehow,in the left´s mind,the south is responsible for all this country´s problems when it´s really urbanites in general.

If this woman wanted to do constructive research,she should study the Amish lifestyle. How can they live in the same country as everybody else and have little or no disease or obesity problems?

A shy teenager with no prior violent tendencies who went on a random, stabbing rampage at his high school on Wednesday told his arresting officers that he ´wanted to die´. Alex Hribal, 16, stalked through Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville near Pittsburgh early on Wednesday morning, stabbing victims in the torso and slashing their arms and faces before being tackled by assistant principal Sam King. The attacker was described by students as a small, quiet boy who largely kept to himself but was not an outcast and did not appear to have been bullied. There were no indications before the attack

U.S. childhood obesity rates have increased over the past 14 years, according to a study published on Monday, casting doubt on a recent analysis by government health researchers that found a sharp drop in preschool obesity rates over the past decade. The good news, announced in February by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), received widespread media coverage and prompted first lady Michelle Obama to say she was "thrilled at the progress we´ve made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans.

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

El Chapo, Most-Wanted Drug

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

Former Rep. Mel Reynolds is expected to be freed and deported from Zimbabwe as early as Tuesday after pornography charges were dropped Friday and he pleaded guilty to a visa violation. Reynolds´ lawyer, Arthur Gurira, said his client remained in jail in the southern African country but could be released Tuesday or Wednesday after immigration authorities complete deportation paperwork. “The papers are being processed,” Gurira said. “Once that´s done, he´ll be free.” Asked if Reynolds would be bound for Chicago, the lawyer said: “I wouldn´t know.”

SOCHI, Russia — The official mascots for the Winter Olympics are a polar bear, a hare and a leopard. But walk around the complexes that will stage the Games here, with the opening ceremony Friday, and what seem more apt are a hand drill, a backhoe and a shovel. Much of Sochi is a work in progress, and parts of it look at least a dozen all-nighters away from completion. There are unfinished hotels, half-finished stores and a mall where the only shop that is open and thriving is a Cinnabon. Wander the premises over the course of a day

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
