Tim Flannery's Reef Bullshit Exposed !


Finally scientists are calling out the likes of deadshit alarmist Tim Flanney.....''Australia's Climate Phony!'' 
Activist scientists and lobby groups have distorted surveys, maps and data to misrepresent the extent and impact of coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef, according to the chairman of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Russell Reichelt… (above)
Dr Reichelt said the authority had withdrawn from a joint ­announcement on coral bleaching with [the National Coral Bleaching Taskforce headed by Terry Hughes] this week “because we didn’t think it told the whole story”. The taskforce said mass bleaching had killed 35 per cent of corals on the northern and central Great Barrier Reef.
Dr Reichelt said maps accompanying the research had been misleading, exaggerating the ­impact. “I don’t know whether it was a deliberate sleight of hand or lack of geographic knowledge but it certainly suits the purpose of the people who sent it out,” he said…
“We’ve seen headlines stating that 93 per cent of the reef is prac­tic­ally dead,” he said.
“We’ve also seen reports that 35 per cent, or even 50 per cent, of the entire reef is now gone.
“However, based on our ­combined results so far, the overall mortality rate is 22 per cent… Seventy-five per cent of the reef will come out in a few months time as recovered.”
Former climate change commissioner Tim Flannery described diving on the Great Barrier Reef near Port Douglas recently as “one of the saddest days of my life"…
The Shumck continued; “Having watched my father dying two years ago, I know what the signs of slipping away are. This is death, which ever-rising temperatures will allow no recovery from. Unless we act now.”
Dr Reichelt said Dr Flannery’s language had been “dramatic” and “theatrical” and his prognosis, ­although of concern, was “specul­ative"…

The Way I See It.......tourism operators have stepped up a campaign to fight back against the onslaught of negative publicity. “It seems some marine scientists have decided to use the bleaching event to highlight their personal political beliefs and lobby for increased funding in an election year,” said Association of Marine Park Tour Operators executive director Col McKenzie.
UPDATE
Meanwhile, the global temperature has cooled over the last three months as the largely natural El Nino dissipates, and is expected to cool further over the next few months:

Can The WORLD Survive 6 More Months Of This GANDER-IN-CHIEF?


 Fancy travelling to Orlando ostensibly to console victims’ families and friends only to embark on a political tirade in defence of Islam and against the second amendment, then to blame the US alone for the 49 lost lives.

This bloke has brought the world to the brink of war and he has no idea that he has. He is complicit in the criminality of the Clintons and he idolises the Islamic faith as it consistently tries to destroy Western infidels. He is a political eunuch lost in a theological fog of Islam while trying to demean Christianity.

Obama: “If all it took was someone proclaiming ‘I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins’ and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they?” and, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.”

And his affection for Islam? “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam” and, “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” or, “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.” and, “As a student of history, I also know civilisation’s debt to Islam.”

The Democrat voting public are entranced by his delivery but oblivious to what he actually delivers.
This goose of a president has intentionally allowed the rise and rise of ISIS for fear of offending Islam and has gathered around him an Administration that will allow him his pornographic articles of faith.

Under Obama ISIS has gone from an “insignificant JV (junior varsity) team” to a threat that has “been contained”. Any containing of ISIS has been carried out by Putin who Obama despises and wants to wrest the credit from. But here is the real threat this Gander-in-Chief poses:

Now that ISIS has been partially stalled 30 mile from Baghdad, Abu Bakir al-Baghdadi (above) has turned his attention away from his private homeland (The Caliphate of the Levant) beheading Ethiopian Christians and is attacking the West insitu. This will continue to be orchestrated from Brussels and Paris where useless Left governments allow ISIS’ Euro headquarters to remain and thrive.

These imminent attacks will leave David Cameron’s UK exposed and across the ditch they will firm up support for Donald Trump.

The UK desperately needs to unshackle itself from a decadent European wasteland but unfortunately PM Cameron is bewitched by the Obama doctrine and with all of the House of Commons promoting a “remain” vote the decision is in the hands of the more sensible average Pom.

Baghdadi’s dreams came true the moment Chancellor Merkel welcomed millions of “refugees” into Europe and counselled the West to take millions more. Canada’s socialist pussy PM, Justin Trudeau, son of former Communist PM, Pierre Trudeau, (seen below at prayer) has scrambled to lead the welcoming committee with unlimited invitations. The Greens and Labor are doing their best to comply in Australia. But the good ol’ Aussie is awake to what is going on, despite a dishonest Left media.

Baghdadi, in an effort to further unnerve the West, immediately promised 10,000 of his Jihadists would be embedded in the hordes streaming north from Syria’s al Raqqa and Iraq’s Mosul... and they were. Now they are there as active cells plotting a hundred Orlandos and San Bernadinos for Obama to refuse to deal with. Baghdadi’s barbaric rule of terror in Iraq and Syria is no longer needed... it’s time to move West.

The Way I See It........by the time November comes around Donald Trump will not be seen as radical, more as a saviour. The legacy Obama wanted will be of a different type... “a fool who brought the world within an inch of an Islamic caliphate”.

When Trump takes over, the current Administration and government agencies, will be banished. That is unusual with a US change of government, but Obama and the Clintons have drenched every corner the Administration with mad Muslim activists and far Left Green global warmists. They must all go and it’s to be hoped the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull will take notice.

London Elects a Muslim Mayor Who Defended 9/11 Terrorists !


Londoners went to the polls on last month to choose a replacement for the outgoing mayor, Boris Johnson MP. Despite the fact the Labour Party is currently mired in an anti-Semitism scandal, the victory of its candidate, Sadiq Khan MP, was confirmed on Friday.

Mr. Khan, 45, has had a successful career in the Labour Party, being elected to parliament in 2005 and becoming a minister of state in 2008, with a promotion in 2009. He was a shadow secretary of state for justice from 2010-15 and has been running for London Mayor since then....

A Muslim Mayor?

Polling suggests some people are nervous about having someone like Mr. Khan near an office that wields so much power, responsibility, and cash.


The crimes of former Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman and others have left many voters distrustful of Muslim politicians.

Private conversations with Westminster insiders often see Lutfur Rahman – the former mayor of Tower Hamlets – raised as another example of a prominent Muslim mayor. Mr. Rahman was removed from office amid accusations of playing sectarian politics with the area's Muslim population, backing Islamists, and distributing tax payer cash to his favoured Muslim groups to secure their support.

Mr. Rahman was found guilty of "corrupt and illegal practices" – and has perhaps set back the plight of the few integrated British Muslims in elected life. He – alongside politicians like Humza Yousaf, Sayeeda Warsi, Rushanara Ali, Shabana Mahmood, Yasmin Qureshi, Amjad Bashir, Naz Shah, and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh – have created a deep distrust between British voters and Muslim politicians.

In fact, one third of Londoners remain suspicious of having a Muslim mayor, and the likes of Sajid Javid or Syed Kamall suffer because of their coreligionists' insistence on fellow-travelling with extremists, if not holding extremist views themselves.

Extremism

And Mr. Khan can hardly claim a clean record. Mr. Goldsmith's attacks are not without basis, though they have been shrugged off as "racism" or "Islamophobia" with the assistance of the left's useful idiots, like Owen Jones.

Mr. Khan is now one of the most powerful Muslims in the Western world.

Apart from his somewhat threatening statements about not voting for him while claiming that "he is the West," Mr. Khan's own track record is perhaps one of the most sour of all Muslim politicians in the Western world.

In 2001 he was the lawyer for the Nation of Islam in its successful High Court bid to overturn the 15-year-ban on its leader, Louis Farrakhan.


Babar Ahmad

In 2005 and 2006 he visited terror-charged Babar Ahmad in Woodhill Prison. Mr. Ahmed was extradited to the U.S. in 2012, serving time in prison before being returned to the UK in 2015. Mr. Ahmed pleaded guilty to the terrorist offences of conspiracy and providing material support to the Taliban.

And Mr. Khan also campaigned for the release and repatriation of Shaker Aamer, Britain's last Guantanamo detainee, who was returned to the UK in November.

Both Messrs Aamer and Ahmed provided Mr. Khan with links to the advocacy group CAGE, which described the Islamic State executioner Mohammed Emwazi as a "beautiful young man" and which has campaigned on behalf of both men. Mr. Khan is reported to have shared a stage with five Islamic extremists, including at sex-segregated events. Even so, his poll numbers remained firm until election day.

The ConservativeHome website lists even more concerns, including:

  • A letter to the Guardian in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings on London, blaming terrorism on British government policy;
  • His legal defence of Zacarias Moussaoui, a 9/11 terrorist who confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda;
  • His chapter in a book, entitled "Actions Against the Police," which advises on how to bring charges against the police for "racism." This is the same police force that Mr. Khan as London mayor would exercise authority over;
  • His defence of Islamist extremist Azzam Tamimi. When Dr. Tamimi told a crowd that the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed would "cause the world to tremble" and predicted "Fire... throughout the world if they don't stop," Mr. Khan, who shared a platform with him, dismissed the threats as "flowery language."
  • His platform-sharing with Suliman Gani, a south London imam who has urged female subservience to men and called for the founding of an Islamic state.

The Way I See It......Londoners got news last month on Friday that their mayor for the next four years is a man with the judgement, priorities, and fellow travellers as laid out above. This, combined with an annual £16bn budget and an army of police, bureaucrats, and officials, would make Mr. Khan one of the most powerful Muslims in the Western world.

God Help Canada with Justin Trudeau Being a P.C. Pussy !


The gruesome death of John Ridsdel at the hands of the Islamist jihadi group Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, and the limp response of Canada's political elites, brings to mind a speech by an American president delivered 55 years ago Wednesday.

President John F. Kennedy addressed a gathering of American editors and publishers in New York City, on April 27, 1961 warning them of an undeclared war:

"Today no war has been declared -- and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion ... For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence -- on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day."

Kennedy knew how to fight a 'monolithic and ruthless' enemy that 'relies primarily on covert means.'

Kennedy was referring to the ideological war of communist insurrection, unleashed by the USSR and China in the 1950s that threatened the stability of much of the world.

Millions would die in these wars that ranged from Indonesia to Angola and Ethiopia to Nepal, before the collapse of communism exposed the horrors committed in the name of ideological purity and the supposed fight for equality and justice.

If Kennedy were still alive, he could have delivered the same lecture today with very little to change, about a new undeclared war.

The Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, is as handsome as JFK was, but it seems Trudeau lacks the input of people Kennedy had around him: the likes of John Kenneth Galbraith, Robert S. McNamara, Dean Rusk and Henry Cabot Lodge.

It was embarrassing to watch Justin Trudeau read a prepared statement and hesitatingly pronounce the words "John Ridsdel" as he expressed his "outrage," without naming the Abu Sayyaf Islamic
terrorists who beheaded Ridsdel.
PHOTO: John Ridsdel (center) with fellow hostages Robert Hall (left) and Kjartan Sekkingstad (right).

 
Trudeau went on to say, "This was an act of cold-blooded murder and responsibility rests squarely with the errorist group who took him hostage," as if some isolated guerrilla group had acted, not a worldwide network of terror that killed two other Canadians in Canada just two years ago.

No prime minister, this was not "an act of cold-blooded murder." An act of "cold-blooded murder" is what happened to eight members of the same family in rural Pike County, Ohio. The killing of Ridsdel was an act of war by an Islamic jihadi group.

Instead of promising swift retribution, Trudeau said, "Canada is committed to working with the government of the Philippines and international partners to pursue those responsible for this heinous act and to bring them to justice."

No, prime minister. It's time for you to stop doing yoga handstands and lecturing on quantum physics to impress millennials. We all know how pretty you are. It's now time to show us if you are capable of taking on the Islamists.

Reporter, Joe Warmington, wrote in Tuesday's SUN, Abu Sayyaf has committed "an act of war," and Canada "is at war with ISIS whether Trudeau admits it or not." And, as Warmington added, "Ridsdel is a casualty of that war."

Prime Minister, please pull out a copy of JFK's speech of April 27, 1961, and read it. It may not be quantum physics, but it will help you understand global geo-politics and the war where "no war has been declared."

The Way I See It......there are bigger fish to fry.

Canadians find it comforting to think that they might actually have a government that isn’t totally in the thrall of Bay Street billionaires and transnational corporations. Murray Dobbin, of Counter Punch writes, ''Everything we know about your party suggests that nothing fundamental has changed. The litmus test will be how you deal with the law-breakers at KPMG and their apologists in your own Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).''

By now most North Americans are familiar with the KPMG tax “sham” uncovered by CBC News. The scheme involved at least 26 wealthy clients (minimum contribution, $5 million) for whom KPMG set up shell companies in the Isle of Man, one of many tax havens for the rich and large corporations. The Canada Revenue Agency initially said the scheme was “grossly negligent” and “intended to deceive.”  The CRA and the Justice Department have a moral obligation to the Canadian people to name and prosecute those who have grossly and arrogantly flouted the law.

If Justin Trudeau can’t deal with the rot in his own rogue agency, his carefully crafted political persona will be permanently tainted. It's bad enough that he comes across as a preeminent Politically Correct Pussy. What will remain is the same old Bay Street Liberal Party unashamedly serving the rich and powerful and afraid of telling the truth..

As the LEFT is Fomenting GENDER DIVISION.....Hillary is EXPOSED !


While boring old conservatives like me scratch our heads over sexually specific gender wars, we should not have to worry about which public toilet to use. Aborigines had no specific areas set aside for a leak. It was squat if you’re a female, stand up if you’re a bloke and if anyone wanted to look, they came away sorely disappointed. Unisex toilets have been here for yonks, in fact there is at least one in every household you visit.


No-one had heard of the word ''misogyny'' until that scumbitch Julia Gillard conned herself into the Prime Ministership and went after Tony Abbott in the same way as did Malcolm Turnbull.

So, what’s behind all this nouveau, non-denominational, sexual putsch? Clearly it’s a Left minority that wants every sexual proclivity legitimised to the same state of normality as that of a sheila and a bloke. Legitimised rather than tolerated, that is.

Okay, the Left is never happy unless it is tailoring something to its own special minority wont! I mean the Left is riddled with unusual sexual practices and single-gender public toilets is but a symbol of a greater need to be accepted as normal rather than be seen as oddballs.

Donald Trump will find it difficult to navigate his way through Hillary Clinton’s gender traps. Feminism is a powerful weapon when used wisely. Tony Abbott never understood how a wink or a glance at his watch could lead to a viral tirade of misogyny from Julia Gillard and if Trump thinks throwing Bill Clinton’s infidelities at Hillary will work, he had better reconsider. Women can more easily play the victim game than can blokes.

The 20-year relationship between Hillary and her personal aide Huma Abedin, (left) a practising Muslim and Muslim Brotherhood supporter, began at the very same time Bill Clinton began his involvement with Monica Lewinsky and Hillary’s lesbian affairs since college have been the beltway’s worst kept secret, so it’s hard to see Trump ignoring this.

Jenny McCarthy, co-host of infamously feminist “The View” admitted in 2014 that she regretted joking about Hillary Clinton's sexuality during an episode of the program. "Well, maybe he has his girlfriends, and she has her girlfriends. You never know. Maybe they have a balanced arrangement," McCarthy suggested at the time.

McCarthy made the remark about Hillary when she and the other co-hosts were discussing a claim that former President Bill Clinton had a "mistress", one of many, who the Secret Service had nicknamed "The Energiser".

There is plenty of ammo in the Trump locker but if it’s used unwisely it could abruptly end his shot at the White House. And Hillary and her ever-present aide have had plenty of time to plan a defence that is sure to devastatingly rebound on Trump.
As he has often presciently said, “I haven’t started on Hillary yet!"
The Way I See It.....is the question how US voters will respond to blatant homosexuality in the Oval Office is unclear. They responded well to Edgar Hoover’s open homosexuality and equally well to Bill’s heterosexual adventures with admiration rather than condemnation, so it could even be a plus for Hillary. It will certainly be a plus for her close friends in the LGTB community who have been begging her to come out of the closet for years, but who knows? The world is changing quickly.

Hillary has supported every political demand of the homosexual community. As an Independent, Bernie Sanders would have been privy to the inner sanctum of the Administration’s sexual secrets, and Obama himself is not without persistent rumour, but whistle blowing is not Bernie’s style... it is very much Trump’s style.

The remainder of this year will be extremely interesting concerning both Washington’s and Canberra’s ablutions.

Could Fluoridated Water Be Contributing to Cognitive Disorders? Harvard Says YES !


Fluoride was introduced to water supplies decades ago as a method of battling tooth decay. Since being introduced to Beaconsfield, Tasmania in 1953, the use of fluoride in drinking water has crept up steadily in Australia. Currently, the state or territory with the lowest level of artificially fluoridated water is the Northern Territory at 70%. Other states and territories have had between 83 and 100% of their water supply affected.

This hasn’t gained much media attention or public scrutiny other than a number of anti-fluoridation action groups. However, a new study emerging from Harvard builds on previous work that shows we could indeed be facing some harmful effects due to water fluoridation. 

Since it published a study in 2006 linking fluoridated water to lowered IQ levels in children, a number of Harvard researchers have held concerns around chemical exposure and neurotoxicity and have pointed their research in such a direction. Among them are the authors of a recent study, released in 2014 in the Harvard journal Lancet, which pointed the proverbial microscope at an apparent increase in cognitive disorders such as ADHD, autism and dyslexia amongst others.

The study’s authors claim that we are facing a neurotoxicity pandemic that requires a global strategy in response.
Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the ICAHN School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) say, ".....that along with these numerous environmental toxins, fluoridated water is adding to the higher incident of both cognitive and behavioural disorders.''
Two of the main researchers involved in the study, Philippe Grandjean from HSPH and Philip Landrigan from ISMMS, say that incidences of chemical related neuro-developmental disorders have doubled over the past seven years from six to 12 [3].”
The study does admit that there are numerous chemicals that may be contributing to the mix, and thus fluoride isn’t the only culprit. The problem, according to Grandjean and Landrigan, is that many of these chemicals are untested before being approved by the various regulatory bodies without truly knowing their long-term ramifications on human health and especially the unique vulnerability of the developing brain (in utero). They do hold that fluoride is a definite culprit though, which should prompt concerns given the high level of fluoridated drinking water in Australia.

Previous work by the study’s authors involved ”a meta-analysis of 27 cross-sectional studies of children exposed to fluoride in drinking water, mainly from China.” It suggested an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations [2].

The authors of the study held concerns for pesticides, herbicides and solvents, especially maternal exposure during pregnancy. But returning to the topic of the study, they found that:

Perfluorinated compounds, such as perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctane sulphonate, are highly persistent in the environment and in the human body, and seem to be neurotoxic. Emerging
epidemiological evidence suggests that these compounds might indeed impede neurobehavioral development and cause horrendous deformities.

The Way I See It....it is important to emphasise that:

The total number of neurotoxic substances now recognised almost certainly represents an underestimate of the true number of developmental neurotoxins that have been released into the global environment. Our very great concern is that children worldwide are being exposed to unrecognised toxic chemicals that are silently eroding intelligence, disrupting behaviours, truncating future achievements, and damaging societies, perhaps most seriously in developing countries. A new framework of action is needed.

NOTE:  In January 2012, a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) showed that perfluorinated compounds (PFCs)—which are widely used in manufactured products such as nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing, and fast-food packaging—dramatically lowered children’s immune response to tetanus and diphtheria vaccinations. The report suggested that these chemicals may be undermining one of the keystones of public health: childhood immunization.

New Research Links Curcumin And Brain Cognition !


From a chiropractic paradigm, life should be lived fully, throughout every part of our lives. A number of signs and symptoms of aging are associated with extended life. For those who live in the sickness-care paradigm, the focus remains on minimising the negative effects of aging. For those of us who live and breathe wellness care, it all comes down to how we enable successful aging. What is successful aging? It’s when we greet our older years with social, physical and mental wellbeing intact. 

There are many blights that can befall the elderly, as we all well know. Among the neurological symptoms are things such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. A recent study is likely to be the first looking at curcumin, cognition and mood in a healthy older population. The results are in, and it looks like the power of the curry doesn’t lie just in its flavour.

The study, titled “The effects of solid lipid curcumin on cognition and mood in a healthy older
population” was published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology in May 2015, and emerged from Australia’s own Swinburne University, in Melbourne (photo right).

The study was doubled blinded, randomised and placebo controlled, taking 60 healthy adults aged 60-85. It looked at the effects across three time spans: 1-3 hours after a single dose, after 4 weeks of treatment, and 1-3 hours after a single dose following 4 weeks of treatment. The dosage was 400 mg of Longvida ® solid lipid formulation*.

The results are exciting. “One hour after administration, curcumin significantly improved performance on sustained attention and working memory tasks, compared with placebo. Working memory and mood (general fatigue and change in state calmness, contentedness and fatigue induced by psychological stress) were significantly better following chronic treatment [1].” Additionally, when participants were assessed 1-3 hours after a single dose following four weeks of treatment, significant effects on alertness and contentedness were observed.

There was good news for cholesterol as well. “Curcumin was associated with significantly reduced total and LDL cholesterol and had no effect on haematological safety measures.”

Professor Andrew Scholey, (photo left) director of human psychopharmacology at Swinburne University and a leader in the world of neurocognitive research on the effects of lateral product supplements and food components, was one of the study’s three authors [2]. In a recent interview with The Wellness Guys, he expressed his enthusiasm for the area of study, and gave some background to the work.

“There are a number of things that have lead to this. The pharmaceutical approach to brain function and particularly to cognitive enhancement and preventing cognitive decline with aging has really not worked. It’s very hard to think of a drug that you would take to try and prevent cognitive decline particularly during normal aging. This has lead to a search for natural products that may improve cognitive function. It turns out that many treatments that have been used traditionally, or even ones that have been discovered recently, seem to have these complementary properties which means they can improve brain function and cognitive function that is linked in with that,” said Professor Scholey in an interview with the Wellness Guys (episode TWG 224 if you missed it).

So what is curcumin? It is a compound found in turmeric, making up about 2-3% of the spice.
“Curcumin is one of several types of botanicals we looked at. It is a polyphenol and its found in turmeric, which is a spice that’s used in curries. It’s the spice that tends to give curries their bright yellow colour. There has been quite a lot of evidence that people who eat more curry, and this might be counterintuitive, but people who eat more have a number of health benefits. One of these seems to be that they are a little bit less likely to get dementia. A word of caution of course: we aren’t talking about binary effects here
“eat more curry and you wont get dementia,” but there is certainly a pattern that suggests that those people who eat more curry are a little bit protected against cognitive decline and dementia.”
Professor Scholey offered a second caution that there could be other factors that affect outcomes. Still, the results were encouraging. Scholey noted that the level of curcumin that was effective was about 80mg, which you could get from half a tablespoon of powered turmeric, but flagged that bioavailability was an issue if turmeric was consumed alone. There are extracts available that claim much higher bioavailability.
The following were among the study’s findings [3]:
  • Curcumin may inhibit amyloid pathology (a type of degenerative brain plaque found in Alzheimer’s sufferer’s).
  • It may protect against oxidative stress
  • It may reduce inflammation and improve the function of neurotransmitter systems
  • And it is neuroprotective.
Professor Scholey praised curcumin’s ability to assist with working memory, speed of processing and fatigue, and noted that curcumin may assist with the low level inflammation that often goes with aging.

The Way I See It....this study adds to a body of knowledge that covers the impact that specific foods and supplements can have on our cognitive and general wellbeing. It’s certainly encouraging to hear leading researchers highlight that what we find in our food can indeed act as powerful supports to health, wellbeing and aging. For the last 10 years me and my staff have being telling our older patients to use Curcumin for relief of their arthritic knees, hips and fingers.

*The authors disclosed that Longvida sponsored this research. They are independent researchers, but funding often does come from industry.
