ive tried rubbing with coconut oil and olive oil and a more oily diet in previous years but its had no noticable benefits

I also tried "everything" to cure painful heel cracks over the past several years.  None of it worked until I started the carnivore diet (for other reasons) and got rid of all plant oils and plant products.   No coconut, canola, or olive oil.  Years of painful heel cracks just went away.  I do sometimes use animal fat for lotion on some of my skin.  Animal fat is really a big part of what healthy skin is made of.  If it gets too dry it needs more.

Good or bad cholesterol, what kind?

None of the groups of people are very accurate statistical references. Not, the mortality, the age relationship, not even who got the virus and got their cholesterol checked. I don't trust this analysis of these studies, or someone putting them together to write this article.
It may be that the cholesterol drugs decrease immunity and the virus itself brings down the cholesterol, but there is nothing conclusive.

Then again, I don't trust the high cholesterol scare. It just sold lots of drugs. The doctors jumped onto the fad and then figured out that there is good and bad. The good is what is used to make Vitamin D. Lots of BS out there in medical circles. Isn't that part of the benefits of Vitamin D, protection against these cancers, immunites?

we all know that most of the health/diet advise given out in the last 50 years is somewhat dubious.....doesnt give a lot of confidence in the response to this latest virus.

Given that most advice, both good and bad, is ignored, it shouldn't be surprising that people don't care for advice. And nowhere is that better demonstrated than in the White House today.

Yes, CDC, FDA, and the medical teams still push bad advice and medical industry profits.  There had to be some butt kicking this week even to get the Battelle PPE sanitizers approved. And, treating Covid-19 with Hydroxychloroquine is opposed by CDC and FDA because it isn't a monopoly profit center for big pharma corporations. Those doctors won't get bribes for approving the life saving medication.  Some more butt kicking had to be done to get that medication into the hands of American doctors.  Our President it taking charge and getting things done.

The treating of Covid-19 with Hydroxychloroquine is a mentioned possibility simply because it has helped similar viruses, but it is not proven to help this and needs some test runs. It hasn't been dismissed. It is only a possibility and it isn't a safe and simple cure.

Trump was running off at the mouth and speaking prematurely about a possibility that was mentioned in a briefing that might be explored. This is not a coverup, or the usual FDA approval corruption. If the drug could be used, it would be. It might be used prematurely and it could complicate illness and cause people to die. It has not been proven at all to treat Corona19.

I knew that a form of virus pandemic would come sooner or later, the CDC knew that and it was well publicized. We needed measures to prepare for such an outbreak. Now, Trump lies and tells us, "Who knew?" He blatantly gutted the budget of the agency that addresses these issues of pandemic as malarkey using the kill big government drum beat. That is why we are not prepared AT ALL for this. He is scared and in denial of what is going on. He is losing his money, in fear. He is in fear of looking bad for elections and doing a poor job. He appears to me to be thinking even less straight than usual. Things are getting done in spite of him, while he Bullshits, minimizes the facts and wishes that the economy doesn't tank, but it will to some strong degree.

One thing about his reaction to this is certain. To save himself, he will throw anyone and everyone under the bus. This has always been his pattern throughout life.

Trump is not in control, or getting things done, he knows that and is saying any shot in the dark BS to smooth things out. I'm with you, I'm not a fan of the FDA, but this isn't corruption. It is Trump's rhetoric captured by zealot rumors from hasty conclusions, starting with Trump and now some of his supporters.

Our president is merely putting out statements with a slip of his tongue to look like he is getting things done and give some hope to people who react emotionally (like the stock market) to his performance, which has been pitiful. He knows that he gets lots of blame when things go badly, so he lies and bullshits to minimize what is going on. He isn't listening to experts and is dismissing important facts, not the other way around. He is seeing things crashing down and is in self-interested fear himself.

He just wants to say, "Okay, the shows over, everybody go home." But it is not anywhere near over and there will likely be a repeat performance. The damn fool has had to be repeatedly corrected by experts as he rambled on, misinformed and stained his pants watching the stockmarket, That is what is going on with "our president." (He is not my president, it is a corrupted political system.) He is doing a tremendously bad job, he isn't even looking like it, which is the one thing thing that he has been good at...and divisively bullying of others.

I'd like that malaria cure to work across the line, too. I hear you, I feel what you feel, but I can't agree with you on this.

We're on a ride that won't stop to let us off. He is, too.

I'm ordering a new tent to do some glamping out in nature and taking care of my health.

It is an irritant and world of doubt, every time I go get food, or need to shop.

We went to Redington Pass yesterday and there was a guy telling us that he is wiping down his hands every time that he touches the rocks. People are getting extreme. The tight little trail was not 6 feet wide as we approached, so people were stuffing themselves in the cactus to avoid each other. Some were relaxed, as was the purpose of going there. On a Monday, it was packed. Too many people! There were lots of clothed people in the nude section, a bad sign. They may come back later. That's what happened in the other area where nudes were driven out. Very quickly, a shift happened. This time, there is no place to go.

It was in spite of this, a good experience. I may go there to spend a night or two, to escape.  I laid down closed my eyes and actually fell asleep in the sun next to a loud waterfall. When the crowds left in the later afternoon, it felt completely different.

Shopping to gather my glamping set up is a problem with this pandemic, thing going on. The stuff that I need is getting grabbed up so people can set up their bug out schemes. The solar panel and battery pack set up was gone and I found empty shelves. I had to run all over town, waiting in lines six feet apart, getting a piece here and there. I just hope that I can get the tent in the morning. Why a sales rep working at home doesn't answer her phone to sell me a 900 tent makes me anxious.

Makes me feel like  just want to go glamping, bug out myself and find some peace.

Oh the irony.  On TV news tonight in Washington State they featured the "Coronavirus Control Center" where govt. agencies, Health Dept. Fire Dept, Police Dept, County Govt, City Govt., etc., get together in 1 room for 12 hours per day to coordinate their Social Distance Program, how to force citizens to stay apart.  Let your mind mull that one over.

I hope your campgrounds aren't all closed in AZ like they are here in WA.   Not that anyone wants to go camping at 40F with 40mph wind, and rain, snow, and graupel.  I need to move to AZ soon.

Graupel is round snow or soft hail.   From wikipedia:  "Graupel

"Graupel also called soft hail or snow pellets, is precipitation that forms when supercooled water droplets are collected and freeze on falling snowflakes, forming 2Ė5 mm balls of rime. The term graupel is the German language word for sleet. Graupel is distinct from hail and ice pellets. Hail is common in thunderstorms, while graupel typically falls in winter storms. The METAR code for graupel is GS."

We had a half inch of graupel yesterday.  Still covering the ground here in shady places.

I'd heard that you Eskimos had a host of names for different types of ice! ;D

The weather just hit the 80's and there are many sunny days coming, if normal means anything anymore. That is my favorite time of weather and for getting out, there are greater opportunities. I'm looking for new hikes and places. Camping is nice, not too hot and the evenings are still warm weather, until after bedtime.

Bad news is that the last Hot Springs gathering has been cancelled. Now, no soaking until next November. DF has taken time off. I'm looking for alternative four day nude adventure. They can rope off the campgrounds, but not the countryside and gas is cheap. It will be a good time for honing the glamping, "summerhouse" system.

I've been focused on ulralight backpacking for years, now. This means lots of crap, even oriental rugs on the roof wrapped in plastic tubes. It is supposed to be a base back in the woods, far enough to wander miles nude and stay that way out for longer periods.  Only coming into town for shopping once a week, or so.

It has computer, but probably no internet, just maybe. Gotta store healthy food and ice for that long. Haven't decided which alternative to expensive "Yeti" coolers, yet.

Got a "Lovable Loo" yesterday! No digging holes every day. Walking, camping stuff, photos of wildlife, writing, guitar, exercise, meditation, prayer, solitude and camping activities. Social calendar and sweat can be overcome. This isolation is good practice.

My wife had to drive through a blizzard conditions driving into town today.  Slow down, shift into 4 wheel drive, try to keep on the road.  Couple of more inches of snow.  Need to move to Arizona.
