While it is technically accurate to call all carbs sugar, there is a radical difference in the source of the carbs — ripe whole fruits versus starches, for example, and whole fruits versus refined processed sugar (ex: table sugar and high fructose corn syrup). Many studies have indeed found a strong and accurate link between refined sugar intake and cancer risk How Refined Sugar Fuels Cancer Analysis by  Dr. Joseph Mercola       December 08, 2023 Previous   Next   The Many Benefits of NAC — One of the Most Important Supplements You’ve Likely Never Heard Of How Do Constitutional Archetypes Determine the Correct Dose of a Treatment? STORY AT-A-GLANCE All dietary carbohydrates are digested into sugars called glucose. Glucose, in turn, can be metabolized (burned) for fuel using two different pathways. First, the glucose is metabolized into pyruvate. The pyruvate can then either enter the glycolysis pathway in the cytoplasm of the cell and produce lactate (this is an inefficient backup pathway), or it can be converted into acetyl-CoA and shuttled to the mitochondrial electron transport chain, which results in optimal energy production The Warburg Effect refers to the observation

In truth, Aquinas has a rudimentary understanding of prices as being the result of the subjective value of the buyer, an idea later fully developed by his followers, the Late Scholastics of Salamanca.

4.0 out of 5 stars   Read "After Virtue" first, then... Reviewed in the United States on March 31, 2014 Verified Purchase I didn't find this book as engaging as "After Virtue." If you have not read "After Virtue," I would start there first, and then move to "Three Rival Versions of Moral Inquiry" and then to "Dependent Rational Animals." If you want more, then move to "Whose Justice? Which Rationality?" My bias is classical liberal, pro-market and anti-state, but always with tension with a more communitarian/Thomistic approach which MacIntyre gives. He does not get economics, however, and true to his Marxist roots, for example, he indicates that Aquinas "held a version of the labor theory of value," that the Summa to support that "exorbitant prices" are theft, that capitalism is incompatible with St. Thomas, in pp.199-20

Funny: "Stevie, You know I normally do not let CIA agents comment at But I cannot resist pointing out that you need to look at the Latin of Lument Gentium"  Steven O'Reilly NOVEMBER 5, 2022 AT 10:12 PM Brother, gratuitous assertion? Hardly. Your readers may benefit from reading the following article: God bless, Steven O’Reilly REPLY NOVEMBER 5, 2022 AT 10:52 PM Stevie, You know I normally do not let CIA agents comment at But I cannot resist pointing out that you need to look at the Latin of Lument Gentium, and then you will see that your argument’s foundations do not exist. It is really pathetic how much you push against reality, when you cannot even read Italian or Latin and resort to lousy translations. Here is the Latin, of Lumen Gentium, for reference. The word munus is all over it. But, one cannot appeal to any Latin text outside o

Is Francis a Pope or a Pretender? BY WILLIAM KILPATRICK Is Francis a Pope or a Pretender? BY   WILLIAM KILPATRICK   |   NOV 15, 2023 The arguments in his defense don’t stand the test of time In the wake of Bishop Joseph Strickland’s removal by Francis, the question of Francis’ own status has resurfaced. Is he really the pope? Or is he an imposter or an anti-pope or something worse? When the question was initially raised years ago, quite a few Catholic theologians and commentators came to Francis’ defense. They quoted scripture, canon law, and past theologians, and they seemed quite confident that they were right and that critics of Francis didn’t know what they were talking about. But, as the years passed and as Francis’ appointments, actions, and pronouncements became more obviously out of line with Catholic teaching, many of the arguments in defense of his legitimacy began to wear thin. One frequently-used argument was that the although Francis seemed to flirt with heresy,
