Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity
While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.
Professor and procrastination expert Piers Steel, Ph.D, gathered 24 participants and divided them in two groups in an effort to assess whether delaying tasks helped or hindered their completion.

I have known about this for years - but here is the proof.

Please share with any bloke you know over 40 and if they eat loads of eggs every week or food with eggs and chicken - encourage them to ask their GP for a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test.
2 Pyrex - or similar - 1 litre and 2 litre - measuring jugs.
I medium saucepan - sterilised with boiling water - allow to cool.
1 non-steel whisk
250ml Water- Distilled best - De-ionised and filtered are ok - NOT TAP WATER.
160gm Ascorbic Acid - from Classikool or Special ingredients on Amazon
195gm Sunflower Lecithin Powder- Classikool or Special Ingredients on Amazon
Measure and mix the Water and Vodka.
Pour this mixture into the small sterile saucepan with the Ascorbic acid
Very slowly, heat the liquid remaining to below 32-35º, whilst stirring with a small whisk until complete dilution takes place and liquid becomes clear.
Pour the mixture into the 2L glass measuring jug with the Lecithin and blend for 2 minutes.
Cool in a refrigerator.
After one hour blend again for 2 minutes.
Cool again in a refrigerator.
Repeat 3-4 times.
You don't have to do the next step if you don't have a ultrasonic bath - if just makes more liposomes.
Pour the mixture into the sonic bath and stir with a plastic whisk for 20-30 mins.
Do not exceed 32-35º.
Allow it to cool.
It doesn't always have to go in a fridge as I have found it thickens quite considerably - so ok to leave it in a cool place.
Its anything up to bowel intolerance really!
So start with a teaspoon in the morning for a few days and then add a teaspoon in the afternoon/evening with food.
3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon and from a normal and not therapeutic dosage this is ok.
The therapeutic dose is much higher.

Liposomal Vit C is very much stronger than IV Vit C and therefore much stronger than the Ascorbic acid you may get from a health food store.

Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
(OMNS Mar 3, 2020) The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day.
These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C's effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally.
Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy.
He says, "Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral."

What is it abut back pain?
(OMNS July 18, 2020) Probably never before in history has anything or any event mixed fact, fiction, fear, and confusion like the COVID-19 pandemic of 2019-2020. Political and medical "experts" have been in abundance, primarily regurgitating the same message as though it was something new every time they get interviewed: wash your hands, maintain social distancing, and wear a mask as much as possible. And the public and the news media always take great comfort that an "expert" told them the truth. Trouble is, you can always find another "expert" of equal credentials who will offer a completely contradictory perspective. Understandably, this generates much of the fear and confusion noted above. The good hygiene and virus avoidance advice noted above is helpful, although it is probably a bit overblown when discussing how important a mask is in preventing virus transmission, especially outdoors. It seems ludicrous to mandate mask wearing at all times, indoors and outdoors, although this is being given consideration by some governmental (and medical) authorities at the time of this writing. However, this advice only scratches the surface with regard to the numerous options available to avoid contracting this infection, or to even cure it. There is no point in suffering from misguided advice when COVID-19 can be prevented or reliably cured in short order. As will be clearly explained in this article, nobody needs to die from COVID-19, or even to suffer needlessly (as many virus victims have remained quite ill for months before finally recovering).
While still unknown to most practitioners of traditional, or "modern" medicine, acute viral syndromes, COVID-19 included, can all be easily prevented most of the time. And when such viruses do get a foothold in the body, they are still easily eradicated if the patient is not too close to death before receiving any of a large number of treatments established to be effective. Many doctors get attacked for promoting treatments as cures for afflictions that are traditionally considered to be incurable. Certainly, it is true that some treatments promoted as being reliable cures are either fraudulent or of only nominal benefit. However, failing to assert the validity of a true cure for a medical condition is just as detrimental to the health of an ailing patient as it is promoting a false cure.
Many doctors know of highly beneficial treatments that cure or vastly improve medical conditions that are little affected by traditional therapies. Yet, fear of license revocation for telling the truth about inexpensive and natural therapies that cannot be protected by patents keeps most health care practitioners from promoting those beneficial therapies. Nothing is ever embraced, and seemingly not even permitted, that would take away large profits from pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and even many of the doctors themselves. Whenever you are absolutely stupefied and cannot figure out why a valuable treatment is not being used, just take the time to identify, expose, and analyze the money trail that is involved with the prescription drugs and/or overall treatment protocol that would be displaced.  The reason for the avoidance or suppression of that therapy will then become apparent.
To be perfectly clear: The health of the patient must always be the primary concern whenever rendering medical care.
While the politics of the COVID-19 pandemic are beyond the scope and aim of this article, there remain no valid medical reasons for not using any of the agents or interventions itemized above for either preventing or treating COVID-19 patients. Furthermore, many combinations of these treatments can be applied, depending on their availability and the clinical status of a given patient. Traditional medicine insists on "proof" of any therapy before it is used routinely, even though this standard of proof is never actually obtained for many of the usual prescription drug approaches to infections and other diseases. When an agent is inexpensive, virtually harmless, and with substantial evidence of providing benefit, there is no justification for a physician to refuse or even actively block its administration to a patient otherwise assured of prolonged suffering and likely death (as with hospitalized COVID-19 patients on ventilation support).
With the treatment options available, there is no good reason for most people to even contract COVID-19, and there is certainly no good reason for anyone to die from this virus, much less have a prolonged clinical course of infection with a great deal of needless suffering.
