“Dogs offer companionship, reduce anxiety and loneliness, increase self-esteem, and improve overall mood,” says HMS cardiologist Dhruv Kazi https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/10/09/want-live-longer-try-getting-dog/ …

I'd like to think humans help dogs feel better as well-- everyone wins.

Happy to see that other #development partners like @UNICEF are looking into #health taxes as well: Extensive evidence associates consumption of added sugars with multiple health risks for children, including diabetes, tooth decay and obesity.

The latest @IMF report finds that carbon taxes "are the most powerful and efficient, because they allow firms and households to find the lowest-cost ways of reducing energy use and shifting toward cleaner alternatives"

Quoted @radikalchick

And when call-out culture decides to pick on our particular mistakes as the mistake-du-jour, is there a way to make amends. And who are these people calling us out? What are THEIR MISTAKES? Because who the hell is without sin?

Something to reflect on as we celebrate #mentalhealth day today.

Today is #mentalhealth day. Women are more likely to be diagnosed with #depression and to attempt #suicide. So why is the male suicide rate still several times higher than female? Read more here:

Quoted @BernieSanders

If you don't think our tax system is rigged in favor of the wealthy, remember that the Waltons (worth over $200 billion) pay a lower tax rate than entry-level workers at Walmart.

Warren Buffett also admitted that he pays a lower #tax rate than his secretary https://money.cnn.com/2013/03/04/news/economy/buffett-secretary-taxes/index.html …

Sugar-sweetened beverage #SSB producers manipulated evidence in their bid to stop #SouthAfrica from implementing #sugartax. “Evidence” stated that tax on sugar would lead to big job losses in retail and farming and have little impact on public health. https://www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2019-09-30-sugar-tax-corporate-tactics-leave-a-sour-taste/ …

They took a page from the #tobacco playbook, I see.

Quoted @anahadoconnor

My latest: The author of a controversial new meat study said he had no conflicts. But he led a similar study in 2016 that tried to discredit sugar guidelines, paid for by an industry group whose members included McDonalds, Coke & beef processor Cargill. https://nyti.ms/2LMGJkF

Rest in Peace Tony Mabesa, 84 💐

Tony Mabesa used to walk his chow chows (Princess and Duchess) every Sunday morning during our ROTC training in UP Diliman. RIP , Sir.

Very pleased that @WHO and @FIFAcom are teaming up to promote #HealthForAll. These two organizations are close to my heart and I am confident that by working together we can help people all over the world lead healthier, more active lives.
