We all know non-human species have an abudant amount of locations to sleep, carry on, and live their lives. Likewise there's no shortage of food for them to get.

How would you all relate money, and income with food and shelter security? More money, higher income, more raw food, better paleoman cave?

Hello everyone.

Does anyone have any recommendations for variety? The main foods I find available and of appropriate quality are grass fed beef, grass fed lamb, and pastured eggs. Not including seafood, what other foods do most of you eat?

Science / IQ Experiemntation
« on: June 01, 2017, 06:56:51 pm »
Hello everyone. This will come off as very non RPD, however, entertain my thoughts for a moment.

I believe that it's possible to boost IQ through nutrient intake.

The supplements to take

Vitamin A (retinol supplement, from fish liver oil, like NOW Foods 10,000 IU Vitamin A)
Lugol's - 2.5-10mg (1-4 drops of 2%)
Vitamin D (sun or supplement) (ratio of retinol to D;1 - 8:1, about 30,000 IU of vitamin A max, starting from a smaller dose)
Salt (2 teaspoons per day)

Try it, see if you get smarter

Off Topic / Unwanted adaptation to milk?
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:07:41 pm »
Could there possibly unwanted adaptation to milk drinking?

For example, are large breasts on women a result of drinking milk over thousands of years?

When comparing descendants of non milk drinkers to milk drinkers, the descendants of non milk drinkers generally have considerably smaller breasts (ie. Native American, Asian [not insulting anyone, I find Asian and Native American Women very attractive]).

I had someone say that because I eat a raw diet, I need to live in a bubble.

That the air I exhale could be filled with tapeworms, that the seats I sit on could leave parasites, and that anything I touch could cause someone to get an infection.

General Discussion / The Nocebo Affect & Hypochondria
« on: January 07, 2017, 09:13:46 pm »
Nocebo: A negative placebo effect as, for example, when patients taking medications experience adverse side effects unrelated to the specific pharmacological action of the drug. The nocebo effect is associated with the person's prior expectations of adverse effects from treatment as well as with conditioning in which the person learns from prior experiences to associate a medication with certain somatic symptoms.

http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=31482

Hypochondria: pertaining to or suffering from hypochondria, an excessive preoccupation with and worry about one's health

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/hypochondriac


Essentially, the nocebo effect is thinking something will cause harm, then experiencing that negative effect.

Examples could include thinking Tylenol will kill you, then experiencing terrible symptoms.  Another example could involve cooked food, salt, etc. of course - fearing it and expecting a certain result could cause thinking that results in negative symptoms. 

Interestingly, in the book "Mind Over Medicine" ( http://mindovermedicinebook.com/ ), she gives examples of people receiving sugar pills and experiencing symptoms of the medication they were told they'd receive.  For example a cancer patient receives a sugar pill and is told it could cause hair loss, naseua, etc. and they actually experience hair loss and other negative symptoms due to the nocebo effect.

Hypochondria and the nocebo effect kind of go hand in hand.  Someone continually worries everything's going to make them sick, then they experience the symptoms of how they think they'll be harmed.

Off Topic / Optimizing IQ and EQ through nutrient intake
« on: December 24, 2016, 11:14:58 pm »
Hello everyone.  The purpose of this post is to discuss ways to increase IQ (intelligence quotient) and EQ (emotional quotient, the ability to cope with life and excel).

This link - https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country - shows the average IQ's of various nations.  There are some similarities between people with low IQ's, and those with higher IQ's.

You'll notice that many, in fact most of the nations with low IQ's are equatorial nations.  They live near the equator, and get LOTS of sun (likely very little Vitamin A too).  You'll also notice that toward the top of the list are Asian countries, and Northern countries (Europe, Canada, etc.).

I hypothesize that it is partially due to their A:D ratios.  That the lower someone's A:D ratio gets from 4:1 (ie. 3:1 - 1:2) the lower someone's IQ becomes.

Iceland ranks #6 on the list, and according to this website ( https://knoema.com/atlas/Iceland/topics/Food-Security/Diet-Composition-Micronutrients/Share-of-retinol ) and the conversion info from this website ( http://www.thecalculatorsite.com/articles/units/convert-ui-to-mcg.php ) they get on average from animal foods about 25,000 IU Vitamin A per day (likely as retinol due to it being of animal origin).

This study ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12509593 ) claimed to have found a link between omega 3's and IQ in children, however the researchers didn't consider that though both corn oil and cod liver oil both had the same amounts of Vitamin A, corn oil has beta carotene (which must be converted by the body, and is usually not efficient) and cod liver oil has formed Vitamin A (retinol).

According to this study ( https://thyroidresearchjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1756-6614-4-14 ) the Japanese ingests approximately 2-3 mg of iodine/iodide per day.  Other sources ( http://www.optimox.com/iodine-study-12 ) have found they might ingest significantly more, more than about 13 mg daily.

Iodine/iodide has been found to boost IQ ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15734706 ).

In Japan they  have also been found to have high salt intake ( http://www.businessinsider.com/people-in-japan-eat-more-salt-than-in-the-us-but-most-people-eat-too-much-in-both-countries-2015-7 ), which has also been found to have intelligence boosting effects.

Interestingly, the World Health Organization (WHO) discourages both formed and high amounts (relative to current recommendations) of Vitamin A intake and iodine intake (again, relative to current intakes) similar to theirs.  They also promote low salt intake.  Conspiracy?  Probably not, mistakes happen.  And with medical professionals having such big heads (you know, they're never wrong!), it's likely not conspiracy.  Heck any of you hear about Dr. Semmelweis?  The guy pioneered hand washing, got fired, and then 150 years later hand washing became mainstream (epic fail!).

Another very, very, very interesting thing about that WHO epic fail is that in the U.S. they practice the WHO's recommendations to the tee - average American gets less than 2 teaspoons of salt per day, ingests less than 200 mcg of iodine/iodide per day, and gets 5,000 IU A or less per day (I didn't mention Vitamin D intake, but they're low in that too).  Here's a list of health ranking by nation ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Health_Organization_ranking_of_health_systems_in_2000 and http://thepatientfactor.com/canadian-health-care-information/world-health-organizations-ranking-of-the-worlds-health-systems/ ), you'll notice that the order is very similar to the IQ chart.

Essentially the healthiest countries are also the smartest, and they all contradict the WHO's recommendations (they don't circumcise, they get lots of Vitamin A, lots of iodine, lots of salt [not to say circumsision lowers IQ, just another WHO recommendation with no benefits]).  You'll also notice that The U.S. ranks 37th on one list and 31st on another list.

Smell fishy?


---------

And finally, the interesting part, how you can modify your ratios and amounts.

The goal is to have a Vitamin A:Vitamin D ratio of 4:1-8:1 including all sources (foods, supplements, FCLO, sun, etc.).

You can use Dr. Holick's book "The Vitamin D Solution" which has recommendations for getting sun in different parts of the world based on skin color and location to calculate the amount of Vitamin D you get from sun, or the phone app "D Minder."  Remember sun Vitamin D counts as 2x more Vitamin D than supplements or food.

Then calculate how much Vitamin A you need to get from diet to have a 4:1-8:1 ratio, then eat that much liver and/or take that much FCLO.

You can use supplements, however it's not necessary.  You can eat Vitamin D rich foods, get sun, and eat Vitamin A rich foods - and simply calculate your ratio and eat the appropriate amounts.

Iodine/iodide can be gotten from seaweed (kelp has the highest amounts, other seaweeds have generous amounts too, but kelp has the most). 

Salt, while I know it's frowned upon overall (most RPDF members abstaining), unrefined salt for those interested is a good source.

I think it's a very good idea.

Think about it.  What's to stop CPS (similar to what happened to you SaberTooth) from knocking on someone's door and taking their kids because they feed them raw milk, raw eggs, or other raw animal foods?  Virtually nothing.

They've taken people's kids for less - leaving kids in a car with the A/C on, parents using medical marijuana, and feeding their babies raw milk ( http://www.policestateusa.com/2013/parental-rights-threatened-because-of-babys-diet-state-demands-corn-syrup-laden-baby-formula-over-natural-goats-milk/ ).

I think it's a reality we need to address.  If we want our kids eating raw diets, do we want to have the threat of CPS and other government agencies taking our kids, or do we want a solid legal defense to protect our families?

The defense is clear.

Religious freedom is incredibly important, and we're 100% for all religious freedoms, and our religion isn't the only religion with controversial practices.  Being controversial doesn't mean people shouldn't have the freedom to.

Jews and Muslims circumcise their male children, and approximately 117 circumcised infants die from the practice ( http://www.circinfo.org/USA_deaths.html ).

Jehovah's Witnesses are allowed to refuse blood transfusions for themselves and their kids, even resulting in death ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3027599/Jehovah-s-Witness-baby-die-refuses-blood-transfusion-seven-months-pregnant-cancer-80-chance-surviving-treatment.html ).

It makes sense to me, a fake religion would provide some security for raw dieters to feed their kids as they please.

Naming a god and creating a legally recognized organized religion would only be a desperate attempt to evoke and insure a false sense of security and stability....this goes against against the nomadic and pantheistic spirit of the paleolithic way of life. Instead of inventing a religion I chose to live my religion, and if such unbridled freedom is too much for the local yokels to tolerate then its time to move on. The world has, at least for now, plenty of places for lovers of raw flesh to go and raise families without oppression.

The idea isn't to actually make a religion for the sake of practicing a religion.  But to create a religion for legal purposes that enjoys the same legal loop holes that other religions enjoy for 'questionable practices.' 

It would create a legal loop hole where child protective services, etc. couldn't intervene in a parent feeding their kids a raw diet, giving them supplements, etc. 

Muslims and Jews practice circumcision which isn't consensual, can result in death, etc., Jehovah's Witnesses can let their kids die without getting a blood transfusion, and things like that could be used as a comparable argument for why people of a 'raw diet' religion can feed their kids as they please.

Again, the idea is not to make an actual religion and practice.  The idea is to create legal loop holes (a legally registered religion) where legally people could feed their kids raw diets, etc.

I've been maintaining my A:D ratio at appropriately 7:1.

I take about 70,000 IU A, and 10,000 IU D from supplements, and 5,000 IU A and 1,000 IU D from FCLO.  For a total of about 75,000 IU A and 11,000 IU D, about a 6.81 ratio not including food and sun.

My goal is to maintain a 4:1 to 8:1 ratio.  Sun D lasts about twice as long as supplement and food D.  So with my ratios and amounts how they are I'd need to get about 4,000 IU D from sun daily to get to 4:1, ensuring my ratio stays within a 4:1 to 8:1 ratio.


I'm getting about 2-3 teaspoons of salt daily (any variety, Real Salt, Celtic, etc.)

I've noticed modifying my ratio has made a significant difference in a lot of ways, cognitive and more.

My advice for anyone interested in modifying their ratios is to look into how much D they produce from sun (and remember sun D counts for twice supplement and food D).
Look into how much Vitamin A you get (not from carotenes/veggies, but from animal foods, formed retinol).
Balance your amount to get your ratio closer to 8:1 without going over, with the amount you get from sun bringing it closer to 5:1-6:1.


More info on the Vitamin A and D ratio can be found at The Weston Price Foundation and by googling Dr. Linday.

Who thinks it would be a good idea to create a religion (not necessarily a real one, more a legal loop hole) for people who want to feed their kids raw diets?

Child Protective Services (CPS) could be quite... you already know.  A religion could create a legal loop hole.  After all lots of respected religions have "questionably safe" religious practices, and comparisons between could be used as very reasonable defenses in legal proceedings (hypothetically).

What do you think?

Experiments with Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 has inactive and active forms.

Methylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and adensylcobalamin are active forms.

Methyl can be converted into both.

However some have less than optimal conversion. Hydroxo apparently detoxes the brain, and adensyl plays a part in energy.

I'm trying out taking about 1/2 mg daily of each.

Hi Le Patron,
Glad to read your update and success! Was curious what you are using these days as a water formula. I tried the blue drops on their own before and got a stomach upset. I think this was complicated by drinking green juice before. I want to come back to it again, sans juice.
Thanks

Hey there. I'm drinking spring water. I use distilled water when taking my Lugol's solution or magnesium chloride solution (1 glass 3x a day, breakfast 25 mg Lugol's with 1 tsp magnesium chloride, lunch 1 tsp magnesium chloride, and dinner like 5 tsp magnesium chloride). If I only have distilled water and not spring then I might make a few gallons and add like 1/8 tsp potassium chloride and a little magnesium chloride.

So I've been tweaking my A:D ratio. I currently keep my ratio 4:1 from supplements and food. 35,000 IU A supplement (NOW fish liver oil extract, 25,000 IU and 10,000 IU), 10,000 IU D3 (NOW brand), 5,000 IU from grass fed beef liver daily, and 1/2 teaspoon FCLO (5,000 IU A, 1,000 IU D). This doesn't include what I get from sun and beta carotene in veggies, fruit, etc. Totaling about 45,000 IU A, and 11,000 IU D from supplements, liver and FCLO, for about a 4:1 ratio.

I'm utilizing unrefined salt, about 1.5-3.0 teaspoons daily. And I'm combining it with 10 drops of Lugol's 2% solution (about 2.5 mg/drop, 25 mg total daily).

In an attempt to heal tooth decay, I'm going to try Blue Ice's High Vitamin Butter Oil.


ps. I'm still taking Dr. Hoffer's recommended supplements (niacin, b complex, vitamin C, etc.)

I had a teacher say that the best soap is unscented and has nothing in it.

I decided to go a step further, and do unscented laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, gel (if I wear some), and bar soap. The same items tend to be gluten free, and allergen free.

I noticed my nasal passages are less clogged. I still spray some cologne on my clothes.

Science / The Science of Resistance
« on: September 08, 2016, 10:13:34 am »
Hey everyone. I'm posting here on how and why people are unaffected by potentially pathological microorganisms on raw diets.

As we all know, the more cooked a food is the more heat created intoxicants there are.

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Christine_Swanson2/publication/13633824_Heterocyclic_amine_content_in_beef_cooked_by_different_methods_to_varying_degrees_of_doneness_and_gravy_made_from_beef_drippings_Food_Chem_Toxicol/links/0912f50b4d611b25eb000000.pdf

For example, the above link shows that well cooked meats contain about 30x more heat created intoxicants than rare meats (raw meats not mentioned). There's a nice chart there if you want to take a look.

Here is a study showing that there's a relationship between pollution and infection. The more pollution, the more risk of infection, the less pollution, the less risk of pollution.

"Experimental studies indicate that the numbers of ectoparasites such as trichodinid ciliates and monogeneans increase significantly on the gills following exposure to a pollutant, and this is supported by field data on other ciliates and monogeneans where evidence of pollution has been clearly demonstrated. There is also evidence that endoparasitic protozoons, such as myxozoons, microsporans and haematozoons, all of which are capable of proliferating in their hosts, increase substantially in prevalence and intensity when interacting with pollutants."
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2069073

Heat created intoxicants can be considered pollution. Less means better immune function and more resistance to infection.

Also, since RAF dieters eat animals that are raised to eat good diets, those animals also harbor less microorganisms. Resulting in not just making contact with less, but having stronger resistance too.

"Pollutants might promote increased parasitism by impairing the host's immune response or favoring survival and reproduction of intermediate hosts."
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1805675

I just thought I'd share since this could put some people's minds at ease if they're worried about the safety of raw diets.


ps. This isn't meant to scare anyone from eating cooked food here and again. I still occasionally eat cooked food. Sometimes much more during special occasions :)

pps. I have a theory that low exposure to microorganisms, as would occur on a raw diet, slowly builds resistant to 'potentially infectious' microorganisms. Ie. due to not getting an actual infection, the body develops resistance. Potentially reducing the risk of infection if a person were to make the same contact with microorganisms on a well done cooked diet.

ppps. Like Guy Claude Burger thought, that microorganisms aren't supposed to be pathogenic. I also hypothesize that microorganisms of any kind are actually opportunistic, and whether they are or aren't pathogenic is dependent on the host's physical state. Meaning microorganisms actually are only capable of causing "potentially opportunistic infections" which is totally dependent on the host. Just like say someone eating very well cooked meats might develop an infection, but someone eating very rare meats doesn't.


So eat your food and enjoy! Cheers!

Ok update time!

So I'm taking 70,000 IU Vitamin A (10,000 IU FCLO, 60,000 IU supplement), and 9,000 IU D3 (7,000 IU supplement, 2,000 IU FCLO). I also get sun. Not including sun, I have about a 7.7:1 A:D ratio.When I get sun it probably gets closer to 4:1.

I believe the A:D ratio to be one of those important things for health. Who knows though right?

I've been maintaining 3 teaspoons of salt daily, however I'm considering ingesting it separate from the food I ingest, mono eating. In essence, being slowly swayed to entertain the significant probability that there's more relevance to 'instincto' type eating than I initially believed... I'll be experimenting with eating my food and salt separate, since recently, after eating many raw egg yolks with salt, I realized without salt it tasted bland (cardboard like, despite being dark yellow summer yolks). So I'll be experimenting with eating in a mono fashion.

I've also adjusted my Vitamin A:Vitamin D ratio. I read an article on the WPF about the optimal ratio being 4-8 parts Vitamin A to 1 part Vitamin D. I'm slowly working my way up, so I'm taking a maintenance dose of Vitamin D of 9,000 IU. And I'm taking a supplement of 10,000 IU/pill Vitamin A and slowly increasing my dosage slowly (I don't want to detox harshly, Vitamin A being an extremely important nutrient) till I reach about a 6-8:1 ratio of A:D from supplements and food only, then I'll get some more D occasionally from sun.

I'll likely be taking about 60,000-70,000 IU Vitamin A daily, in sync with appropriate amounts of Vitamin D for an appropriate ratio. The combination of both in appropriate amounts reducing the overall risk of toxicity according to The WPF.



"They also point out that rat studies showing that vitamin A is toxic and antagonizes the effects of vitamin D used much higher ratios, ranging from 5,000 to 55,000!"
