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.

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!

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?

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

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

Justin Bieber’s mansion reportedly was stuffed with drugs and paraphernalia when cops rolled up to serve an egging-related search warrant last week. Two large cookie jars loaded with marijuana sat in plain view of the dozen detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, an unidentified source told TMZ.com. The notorious party palace also contained four or five empty codeine bottles along with empty Fanta bottles, TMZ said. The Fanta bottles appeared to be discolored by the codeine, a sign they were used to mix the narcotic drink Sizzurp, also called “lean.” Luckily for the Biebs, the deputies were raiding the house for surveillance

Jeff Ireland is out as the Miami Dolphins´ general manager. The team announced Tuesday it has mutually agreed to part ways with Ireland, who had been a controversial figure since being named GM in 2008. (Snip) The Dolphins haven´t been to the playoffs since 2008, finishing 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 and 8-8 since. They needed to win one of their final two games to make the postseason this season but lost to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. That cost offensive coordinator Mike Sherman his job Monday and surely contributed to Ireland's ouster a day later.

PASADENA, Calif. — A Texas-sized cloud of uncertainty looms over college football’s biggest game of the season. As No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn prepare in Southern California to meet Monday in the last BCS championship game, the University of Texas is still looking for a new football coach.

ISTANBUL — A corruption investigation that has encircled the Turkish government moved an ominous step closer to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday, as three top ministers whose sons have been implicated abruptly resigned — and one of them, on his way out the door, said Mr. Erdogan should step down as well. The resignations, coming only hours after the ministers welcomed Mr. Erdogan at the Ankara airport as he returned from Pakistan late on Tuesday, were enough to inspire new talk of a deepening crisis, which Mr. Erdogan has repeatedly denounced as a foreign plot. But the words

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.
