Of course, your FB account (if you have one) doesn't need to be hacked to present a major security risk. If you do have one:
Generally speaking, you are much better off without a FB account than with one. But if you really "need" one then set it up under a pseudonym and use a throwaway e-mail address that you get specifically for use with that account. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave off any identifying information.
Generally speaking, the same advice applies to all antisocial media accounts. It's not just FB that wastes your time while unnecessarily exposing you to risk. Seriously assess the "need" and carefully weigh the pros and cons. Is a small benefit worth the huge time pricetag? What about the security risk? What about the antisocial behavior that is the norm now on antisocial media sites?
What about FB for business? That's different in some ways. For example, you can post a photo of your business if it's something other than an office in your home. And you can give out your business address and phone number. You can post a photo of yourself, too. Just try to keep your personal details out. And don't use this account for anything personal. That means personal opinions, also--avoid the antisocial aspect of FB and similar platforms. Your FB business pages need to be business-like in all respects.
The August issue of Cell Metabolism Magazine (the target audience is mostly medical doctors) ran an article under its "Eureka Alert" titled "Why Weight Loss Produces Remission of Type 2 Diabetes in Some Patients".
And it goes on to say that prompt weight loss at the time of diagnosis can restore beta cell function if the disease has not progressed too far already.
Do you see what's wrong? Yes, exactly: the premise of the article. The practitioners in the medical industry are typically untrained in any subjects having to do with health, and what little they believe they know is usually wrong.
Based on this premise, having all four limbs amputated will send Type 2 Diabetes into remission if you're not too far along in the progression of the disease.
Here is the reality. You will CURE this type of diabetes by immediately ceasing all forms of endocrine system abuse, if the disease has not progressed too far already. It doesn't go into remission, it's eliminated.
In the medical profession, there is confusion between fat and weight--as if
everyone's lean mass is the same. What a ridiculous notion.|
The same article, if based on actual health knowledge, would be titled, "Why Cessation of Endocrine System Abuse Cures Type 2 Diabetes Patients If Done In Time".
And few medical practitioners understand that excess body fat is merely a symptom of:
That first condition is far more prevalent than the second. The standard American diet is highly endocrine abusive; controlling portion size and counting calories won't fix that. Even so, endocrine system abuse tends to give people the munchies. It triggers a hunger response. Most people grossly underestimate how much they actually eat, mistakenly believing they are "eating in moderation". If not for the endocrine system abuse, they probably would eat in moderation. So they are getting the "store fat" response plus they are eating more.
So the 800lb gorilla here is endocrine system abuse.
For the vast majority of Americans, endocrine system abuse is just a normal part of every day life. They eat processed "foods" instead of real food.
But also, they buy into health scare lies that steer them away from healthy choices and toward unhealthy ones. For example, many people will not eat butter because "it's bad for you." So they go to margarine or to corn sweeteners or to hydrogenated oil, all of which are really terrible for you and all of which cause agonizing diseases.
First, let me define "butter". I do not mean the stuff made from the milk of diseased, mammary gland infected, abused factory farm cows. I mean what is now labeled as "organic butter"; it's made from the milk of healthy, well-treated cows. It tastes exactly like the butter I ate as a kid, before the Food Apocalypse hit America's dairy industry.
Since American wheat flour is incompatible with the human body, those of us wishing to bake either damage our health or use other flours such as oat flour. One problem with these other flours is they are low in gluten. That makes them harder to work with, and you have to do something extra to make the dough rise adequately.
A traditional German baker, visiting here from Germany, told me they use butter in their pastries to make them fluffier. Adding butter to dough creates bubbles in the dough, the same kind of bubbles you get from high-gluten flour. The amount of butter used isn't really all that much. It's well within the human body's ability to handle, unlike the sugars in American flour which are way outside the human body's ability to handle.
I use butter for more than baking. For example, I smear some butter on my omelet pan. It tastes great and helps fluff up the egg. I eat two omelets a day, except on climbing days when there is time to make only one.
My feline companion always licks the egg bowl, but she doesn't get that second bowl on climbing days. To make up for this, I melt some butter in a bowl and give that to her. She's nine years old and weighs the same as what she weighed when she was two years old. She has a very tiny waist and large, powerful shoulders and hips. There is not an ounce of excess fat on her, even though she has kibble available 24 hours a day, eats butter regularly, and eats eggs usually twice a day. Her diet is devoid of wheat and corn, so she isn't suffering from endocrine system disruption.
Dietary fat is not the enemy that Susan Powter and others have mistakenly made it out to be. Your biggest dietary enemy is anything that is an endocrine modifier.
If the medical industry ever figures this out, or takes seriously the views of its own endocrinologists, or carefully examines the diets of body builders or people like Usain Bolt, they will stop spewing nonsense about "losing weight." They will change from addressing one of the symptoms of endocrine abuse to addressing the behavior itself. But don't wait for them to engage their brains on this issue. It could be a very long time until they come around to embrace reality.
If you know someone who is "prediabetic" or in the early stages of adult onset diabetes, you personally can help them cure themselves of the disease. The medical industry won't, but it can verify the cure has worked. Here is what you do:
Just one month of this, and the person you are helping will see dramatic changes in body composition, smell better, feel better, and even sleep better. When the month is up, ask the "curee" to go one more month. Stay in touch daily from day one of the self-curing process to ensure this person stays on track.
Once the person agrees to be cured, have that person make an appointment with their medical care provider for 6 weeks out. That visit will be to take new metrics, mostly to assess the blood sugar situation. The change will be so profound, the doctor will be amazed. Doctors don't normally see these changes, because their patients normally follow the doctor's ineffective program instead of getting cured.
If you're not prediabetic or diabetic but you're on the "get diabetes" endocrine-abusing diet, you can "precure" yourself. Simply apply the cure to prevention and those other benefits.
And remember, the desire for wheat and corn products is an acquired taste thing. So is the desire for real food. If you're eating fake foods, the transition to real food is not easy at first. But once you're off the fake food, get diabetes diet your tastes will change. You're not "giving up" the bad foods. You are simply deciding to have good foods instead. Not only are these more enjoyable than the fake foods once your tastes recalibrate, you will look, smell, and feel better. And you won't get diabetes.

The 1040 is one of the many federal taxes we pay, and it produces a giant net loss to the government. That's because the compliance costs are (by some estimates) more than 18 times what this system brings in. Simply abolishing the 1040 system and dismantling the IRS would produce a big gain in federal revenue.
