It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

Charlatan rebuked and dismantled

I do think the plant-based diet people are going down a rabbit hole, uttering vacuous stupidity in order proselytize their ideology. When ideology abuts against truth, ideology needs to step aside and take a cold shower.

Milton Mills is a charlatan. He makes good money doing these lectures for people who pay top dollar to hear what they want to hear. There are also large conglomerate corporations who promote this BS because people who eat a proper human diet for their particular genetics will actually eat a whole lot less. So people like Milton Mills are hired to stir up the waters so that people spend money eating while becoming slowly unhealthy.

Eating 200 grams of Carbs per day every day all year long is not a proper human diet. Fats were always a part of a human diet, that's why we put butter, bacon and sour cream on potatoes, rather than eating the potatoes raw.

Lies and damned Lies

Keto or Carnivore or whatever you want to call it, as compared to a Plant-based diet is a matter of contention, but I think we should all agree that the point is to NOT blather about nonsense and ideological promotion.

Here is Australian Professor Bart Kay trouncing the lies coming from a propaganda video.

Personally I eat quality sources of meat, along with a small amount of plant food, especially sauerkraut. Any plant sources of food that I eat however are intentionally processed, soaking in a brine solution and cooking thoroughly in order to diminished the anti-nutrients and low-level toxins.

Vitamin A for instance, cannot come bio-available from a plant source, and must be converted by the liver at a 1 to 9 ratio at best. Same with iron, magnesium, and protein. Plant proteins are also often difficult to break down, and largely pass into the colon partially intact damaging the lining of the small intestines when they get lodged in the spaces between the villa, not small enough to attach to a carrier salt and get transported into the epithelial cells, so they sit and cause inflammation problems. These molecules normally get trapped in the mucus layer of the small intestine, but if the daily bombardment overwhelms the mucus layer, the non-digestible plant proteins wreak havoc on our intestinal epithelial cells and cell junctions against molecules in the colon entering the blood stream.

The Avocado Story

Giant Sloths did not defecate avocado seeds, despite the New York Times once again spreading myths and disinformation.

Humans started growing them 10,000 years ago in Mexico. That's it.

Low Carb Whole Food diets versus Low Fat Whole Food diets

Doctor Stephen Phinney discusses a randomized controlled study of people with Metabolic syndrome that gave half an LFHC (Low Fat High Carb) diet and half a LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) diet over 3 months. Essentially this is a Low Fat diet versus a Ketogenic diet.

He then discusses another study over 5 years by a Doctor in Indiana who got 252 subjects that had Metabolic syndrome. They were instructed to eat no more than 50 grams of Carbs per day.

Keep in mind that the constituents in these studies already had Metabolic syndrome.

The interesting things I found were ...

  • Intake of Saturated Fat is not correlated with Saturated Fat in the blood. You don't get more saturated fat in the blood because you eat saturated fat. Low carb actually had a 2 times reduction in Saturated fat in the blood
  • Inflammation markers in the blood all decreased significantly on a Very Low Carb High Fat diet AND a few of them increased significantly on a Low Fat diet. A few markers take longer than 3 months to stabilize, which explains some plant-based studies that indicated Reactive-C compounds go up on ketogenic diets.
  • Half of the people (they had type 2 Diabetes) stopped their insulin shots after the first month when doing the Low Carb diet

Vitamin C and Scurvy

Very interesting.

Human Beings stopped being able to synthesize there own Vitamin C, which means that somewhere along the line there must have been a genetic advantage or reason for our species to have lost this ability.

Professor Bart Kay discusses when this happened at around time stamp 3:20. He says this happened when our ancestors came down from the trees, stopped eating fruit, stood upright and started eating carrion and animals more frequently.

He talks about oxylates. Oxylates are chemical compounds that leafy green plants (like spinach) make to ward off animals from eating them. When ingested, oxylates bind with mostly calcium but also other minerals. The bi-product that results are sharp-edged crystals that float around the body and pierce the outer edges of organs, blood vessels, intestinal lining. They are largely removed by soaking in brine (dumping the water residue that results) and then cooking the leaves.

Hence, eating baby spinach or kale salads will give you a large dose of oxylates. If there is cheese in the salad, the oxylates will bind with the calcium and other minerals, and then mostly pass out through the colon, but some will find their way into the blood, especially if the salad does not have a calcium source.

When calcium is taken with foods that are high in oxalates, oxalic acid in the intestine combines with calcium to form insoluble calcium oxalate crystals that are eliminated in the stool. This form of oxalate cannot be absorbed into the body. When calcium is low in the diet, oxalic acid is soluble in the liquid portion of the contents of the intestine (called chyme) and is readily absorbed from the intestine into the bloodstream. If oxalic acid is very high in the blood being filtered by the kidney, it may combine with calcium to form crystals that may block urine flow and cause severe pain.

In addition to kidney disease, individuals with fibromyalgia and women with vulvar pain (vulvodynia) may suffer from the effects of excess oxalates. Oxalate crystals may also form in the bones, joints, blood vessels, lungs, thyroid, and even the brain, possibly impeding their proper function. In addition, oxalates in the bone may crowd out the bone marrow cells, leading to anemia and immunosuppression.

Oxalate crystals cause pain and damage to various tissues, due to their sharp, physical structure, and may also increase inflammation. Iron oxalate crystals may cause significant oxidative damage and diminish iron stores needed for red blood cell formation. Oxalates may also function as chelating agents and may chelate many toxic metals, such as mercury and lead. Unlike other chelating agents, oxalates trap heavy metals in the tissues, leading to metal toxicity. Oxalates also interfere with the Krebs cycle’s glucose metabolism and can inhibit absorption of essential minerals necessary for optimum health.

Foods especially high in oxalates are often foods thought to be otherwise healthy, including spinach, beets, chocolate, peanuts, wheat bran, tea, cashews, pecans, almonds, berries, and many others. People now frequently consume “green smoothies” in an effort to eat “clean” and get healthy, however, they may actually be sabotaging their health. The most common components of green smoothies are spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and arugula, all of which are loaded with oxalates. These smoothies also often contain berries or almonds, which have high amounts of oxalates as well. Oxalates are not found in meat or fish at significant concentrations. Daily adult oxalate intake is usually 80-120 mg/d. A single green smoothie with two cups of spinach contains about 1,500 mg of oxalate, a potentially lethal dose.

Paleopathology and the Origins of the Low-carb Diet

Really good talk. I like the anthropological point of view.
