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.

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.

Actual human digestion

Our biology is a clue to our true ancestral diet. We are supposed to eat animal fats. That is why we have a gall bladder. We do not digest fiber. That is why the length of the small intestine is exceptional compared to the large intestine. We absorb food in the small intestine, and then deal with whatever shows up in the long intestine. We are not relying on bacteria to create fatty acid chains from digesting fiber. Instead, we absorb fat directly.

What ancient humans ate

Very interesting. This is from Michael Eades.

Eat less calories, burn less calories

The reality is that your body processes food based upon the macronutrients, with weight and calories both being proxies for that prima facie intake of the 3 main macronutrients. Here is Jason Fung translating this truth from the famous Women's Heart Health longitudinal study.

The Keto Diet

Here is Dr. David Harper on a Canadian British Columbia show called "Conversations that Matter".

For 30 years, Dr. David Harper, taught medical students that a low-fat, high-carb diet was the way to eat to prevent chronic disease.

Today, he admits, "I got it wrong."

“We now have 20 years of scientific evidence that a well-formulated ketogenic diet reduces chronic disease.”

A keto diet is high in fats, low in carbs.

But Harper, the co-author of the BioDiet: The Scientifically Proven, Ketogenic Way to Lose Weight and Improve Health and a cancer expert, stresses, “A ketogenic diet is not a cure for cancer. Rather, it is an effective adjunct therapy along with a standard of care.”

Until recently Harper was a visiting scientist in the B.C. Cancer Research Centre's Terry Fox Laboratory.

His research indicates a ketogenic diet has multiple health benefits in cardiovascular disease, diabetes and weight reduction.

“The Axis of Illness”, according to Harper are, “insulin resistance, obesity and inflammation, all of which are fuelled by carbohydrates, leading to chronic disease.”

A keto diet coupled with exercise is an effective way to diminish weight, inflammation and reduce insulin resistance, he says.

Meat is not inflammatory

Dr. Ken Berry explains how pre-conception's ignore actual scientific finding in randomized-controlled studies that indicate no inflammatory markers as the result of eating red meat. He quotes the authors of one such study stating in the conclusion that they were surprised by the study's findings because they believed that "of course" red meat is inflammatory.

It's sad to see two medical figures dressed in medical garb spout nonsense, but it wasn't all that long ago when people actually believed that egg yolks were bad for you because of all the saturated fat and cholesterol.

As Dr. Ken Berry explains, such beliefs defy logic. Humans have been eating meat back since we were a branch species of chimps, millions of years ago. When foods caused problems like inflammation, humans fermented, soaked or sprouted the food in order reduce or eliminate the food's inflammatory effects. The fact that humans never fermented meat the way humans fermented cabbage, soy, cow's & goat's milk, and various legumes, or soaked wheat & corn and various vegetables in brine is logical proof that meat is not inflammatory -- otherwise humans would have treated the food in some way to reduce or eliminate the inflammatory response.

You can't live on raw vegetables unless you cook them or ferment them, and then you will still also develop nutrient deficiencies. None of the nutrients in corn are bio-available unless you soak the corn in a lye solution, which is what native americans did. Modern corn is also genetically modified to produce it's own pesticide and is covered in glyphosate. You need to soak spinach in brine and then squeeze out the water, otherwise the spinach is loaded with oxalates - which will cause a bitter taste. Same with Eggplant. Nightshades like Tomatoes and bell peppers need to be de-seeded and cooked to the point of removing the skins to mitigate the inflammatory effects. Mushrooms and onions need to be cooked or the cell walls (chetin in mushrooms) will not get broken, rendering a large amount of the nutrients not bio-available.

You can however live on salami, eggs, bacon, cheese, sardines, sauerkraut, cooked cabbage, cooked carrots and butter without any concern for a single nutrient deficiency.

I just realized that this pathetic attempt at a blog ... has actually been on the internet for 20 years. I never realized that my early thirties excursion into teaching myself how to code a blog and then set that code up on a server would ever last into my mid-fifties. But here we are.

Sometimes I wonder what will happen after my time in this current realm expires. Will it be a long period of 8 years before my debit card exhausts the last funds in the bank account that lives beyond my own personal due date. Will my current druthers and scribbles ever be seen or read by persons who live past the mid-century date of 2050? Who will write the history books in 2075?

These are my current thoughts.
