Me and Burgers

I love hamburgers but lately I only eat them at home. I do not want to seem like a wuss but it seemed to me that when I ate burgers outside my home my microbiome let me know that they were displeased with my selection. Some of the people I know thought that I was just being picky when I said that I preferred meat that did not have added antibiotics or hormones.  Today's Washington Post made clear that my microbiome led me to a healthier choice.

Coca-Cola Funds Global Energy Balance Network

WHO is recommending limits in sugar intake because of the worldwide increase in people who have excess weight. Drinking one typical can of sugar sweetened beverage exceeds the limit. Nevertheless, it seems that Coca-Cola is interested in research that documents that excess weight is not due to bad diets but to not enough exercise They just funded the Global Energy Balance Network to lead this work.
