Only the charred body remained of the car.
According to the AvtoVAZ News public, a LADA XRay car caught fire in Togliatti yesterday, January 6. The driver and passengers of the car managed to leave the salon, no one was hurt. The editors of the Pokatim portal are investigating the causes of the fire.
The car burned out completely and cannot be repaired. This is not the first case of LADA XRay fire in Russia. Before that, several cars were destroyed in the same way, and AvtoVAZ even conducted a recall campaign at the end of 2020.
Obviously the review didn’t help. The most likely reason for yesterday’s fire is still the same. LADA XRay with a 1.8-liter engine has a risk of chafing the fuel harness due to constant contact with the clamp on the wiring.

If the owner has complied with all the conditions of the guarantee and its term has not passed, the full cost of LADA XRay can be sued. There has already been such a precedent – at the end of 2020, the owner of the burned-out Vesta collected a million rubles from the plant.
«The modern, fast, avant-garde diets that urge us to leave behind the old models based on eating in a balanced and varied way? Many will be tempted to adopt them after the holidays to shed a few extra pounds. The problem is that they work ». Maybe I misunderstood? “No, he understood perfectly well,” insists Professor Stefano Erzegovesi, director of the center for eating disorders at San Raffaele Hospital and professor at the Life and Health University of Milan. “Those who testify that they are finally well after eliminating all carbohydrates are not a manipulated visionary, they are telling the truth. If you are used to eating too many refined carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, non-wholegrain rice, sweets etc., abolishing them will lose weight and are better in many ways. It is a “cleaning” effect that really makes itself felt in the first few months. The problem is what happens next, and what is not seen, at least not immediately. The resulting excess of animal proteins leads those who resist in these regimes straight to a diet that is pro-degenerative diseases: too few fibers, too many growth factors, too much heme iron and therefore too many pro-inflammatory elements. The medium-term result? Almost always the lost kilos are recovered with interest, as my patients say. The long-term result? More risk of tumors, cardiovascular, metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases ».
What is the solution? «Don’t abolish carbohydrates but start paying attention which you eat. You can do simple experiments on yourself, trying to eat a sandwich with white bread and the same, but wholemeal, or a soup of legumes: same amount of carbohydrates. But in the second and third cases you will notice that you feel more alert and you will not be hungry again after a while. This is because in the first case the simple sugars, which are the “building blocks” of the complex ones of bread, pasta and rice that are not wholemeal, become available in the blood after a quarter of an hour instead of an hour or more. This totally changes the effect on our body ».
In short, still a reference to the Mediterranean diet. «Yes, as long as it is the real and” poor “one. It’s about starting to eat again as it once was, when hand-refined flour was reserved for the rich. Today, for reasons of industrial processing, a refined product runs the risk of costing less than a truly integral one, but consumer choices can favor the economy of scale in this direction. Among other things, speaking of economy, a truly Mediterranean diet can also have positive effects in other terms ».
For example? «A healthy diet must be very rich in vegetables and varied. This is good for the environment because consuming different types of vegetables promotes the biodiversity of crops, to the detriment of intensive ones. How it is good, indeed a necessity, for the ecosystem, to reduce the consumption of animal proteins. Writer Jonathan Safran Foer’s invitation to “save the planet before dinner” is intelligent, which does not mean abolishing animal proteins but trying to limit them to just one of the three meals a day ».
But where do we get proteins then? “Legumes are rich in it, but also cereals, nuts, seeds and some vegetables ». So should we eat legumes every day? “The nutritional guidelines do not agree on the quantity of legumes to consume: some say at least three times a week, others, that I prefer, at least once a day. Legumes can give a feeling of bloating at first, but introducing them gradually into the diet the problem disappears quickly, leaving only their many positive effects ».
Does all this also apply to children? It is known that they prefer pizza, chips and schnitzel. “And they are right, because their survival instincts orient them on refined foods, rich in ready-to-use energy and protein, which they need to grow. They cannot be expected to have the tastes of an adult, who chooses after having rationalized the reasons. Nor can they be expected to like the bitterness of many vegetables, because almost all toxic alkaloids in nature are bitter and therefore our ancestors learned to be wary of this flavor, a mistrust still written in our DNA. What should be done is to make children progressively learn a healthy sensorial alphabet, gradually accustoming them to new flavors, for example by putting a generous pan in tomato sauce, or by inserting zucchini in pesto and so on. A path that will educate them to a varied diet and protect them from the risk of not being able to appreciate flavors that are not overstimulating due to an excess of salt, sugar or fat. A child gradually educated to vegetables will be a healthier adult aware of his food choices ».
A diet? It is not just a question of nutrition. Losing weight, and in general eating properly, also means understanding how the body and brain work, what mechanisms our body uses and how best to support and respect them. With these premises, «Sugars, fats and proteins. The false myths of diets », the book by Stefano Erzegovesi on newsstands from 4 January with« Corriere »and« Gazzetta ».

The choice, shared by all countries of the world, to vaccinate doctors and health workers firsti is the most logical and obvious that there can be. It is clear that if doctors and nurses fall ill, not only can they not assist their patients but they risk spreading the infection even more. In addition, healthcare workers who get vaccinated represent a message of confidence about the usefulness and safety of vaccines. Instead, here are the accusations: they pass in front of everyone, they have a preferential lane, they will pay for the side effects on their skin, they just show, and go away. Unfortunately, some mass media have joined the professional critics, amplifying, through their voices, these specious polemics that are born only of disinformation. We thus witnessed the cowardly attacks on Spallanzani’s nurse, Claudia, who was the first vaccinated in the country, who, with words full of sensitivity, had defined the vaccine as an act of love and responsibility.
We hoped and believed that everyone would recognize the light at the end of the tunnel, but unfortunately not so. With the no-vax, a large number of uncertainties emerge, even among health professionals, and the perpetrators of doubts grow through the web and beyond. Trusting in reasonableness is not always the winning choice, sometimes it is necessary to act decisively to safeguard public health. The country’s institutions should launch an important information campaign through all communication channels, including social networks, to make known in simple and appropriate language how vaccines work, what are the advantages and possible side effects. Otherwise we will risk not reaching the so-called herd immunity and we will be condemned to chase the virus and its outbreaks for a long time. If an adequate level of adhesion is not obtained, the mandatory vaccine would then be inevitable. In this reality, the media have a role of great responsibility.
