Off Topic / Re: Growth hormone identical in cow and human

My grandfather died at the age of 66 of prostate cancer. He never smoked, drank very moderately, didn't eat junk food, lived outside the city, was fit, but was a big fan of all kind of dairy, and I think that's what killed him.

there is a natural hormone called IGF-I in cow milk that happens to be identical in humans and cow milk. It's a growth hormone, and  what some researchers have found out, is that it is connected to prostate- breast and lung cancer. This growth hormone help the cancer cells grow.

Maasai Milk Link to Healthy Hearts, by Nigel Hawkes, Health

Hawkes writes:

"The milk-drinking diet of Maasai tribesmen in East Africa,
who drink huge quantities of milk but remain almost immune
to heart disease, could be the inspiration for a theory that
could turn the dairy industry upside down."

The diets of the Maasai were investigated and given credit
for low heart disease rates.   Maasai drink milk...and
plenty of it.  However, Maasai do not own refrigerators.
Milk spoils and kills Maasai long before they have an
opportunity to die from heart complications.

In attempting to keep the milk from spoiling, the Maasai
ferment the beverage with two not-so appetizing substances:
blood drawn from the necks of their cattle, and feces.  The
fermentation process allows bacteria to digest lactose.

Will one have to drink milk with blood and feces to prevent
heart disease?  Not at all!

There is a serious flaw in this story.

Maasai live in Kenya and Tanzania.  The life expectancy of a
male in Kenya is 46.5 years, according to the World Almanac.
It gets worse in Tanzania, where the average male is
expected to live just 43.85 years.

To suggest that these milk drinking people are healthy, is
to deceive and lie. So, Maasai don't dies of heart disease.
They should only live that long!

Oh, yes.  African people experience little or no episodes of
osteoporosis. The one exception are the milk-drinking
Maasai.  MILK; What a surprise!

I am not surprised that such a palaeoish tribe would want to avoid all social contact with modern peoples.....

I read that 2 drunk indian fishermen, asleep on their boat, drifted on to their island and where killed...
Cool to read that tribes still hunt with bow and arrow... and they don't seem afraid !

Off Topic / "Disgusting foods"
« on: November 29, 2018, 10:30:32 pm »
What is disgusting one isn't always for the other.

For me, one really disgusting thing is cow milk

Never eaten brain from a mammal, not sure why, but there is a blockage there. But fish head/brain was nice. (maybe because the animal is smaller, or maybe because it's not a mammal? not sure)

But I believe you can train your self. Eating raw eggs was unthinkable for me 6 years ago.
Raw meat was never a problem, felt very easy and natural. Same with raw fish. I think this has to do with the fact that in my childhood we had sushi once in a while.

Traditional thais thinks dairy is totally disgusting (but it's changing fast).

Fruitarians always pride themselves over their excellent karma, just picking a fallen fruit given to us from a tree and living as one with nature ... Fruitarians are addicted to durian, you have no idea how much money they can spend on durian, they will even greedily not share a location with others where durians are found (are usually sold out where fruitarians are around) so they can have it for themselves. Fruitarianism makes one greedy and desperate, because the lack of nutrition drives you onto survival mode.

Another bad habit the chinese have (I saw this many times in my travels in Asia) is that they throw away big parts of their meals

what about menstrual blood?... just joking, (well I heard that in some Hells Angels clans, in order to be accepted as a new member, each man needs to... hm... go down on a woman during that time of the month).
What about the hippies eating the  afterbirth "thing" ... (don't know the name in english). Anyone done it?

Well, that is a bit of a stupid question to ask what is best, spring water or distilled... I mean....?????

I used to travel a lot in poor asian countries and had to buy bottled water, sometimes there was no choice but distilled water, and I felt instinctively how bad the stuff was. It felt very unnatural. Mineral water is more natural, even though the plastic alway leaches into the water, I can really feel and taste a difference.

Circles under eyes can be a symptoms of many things:
too much salt, overworked adrenals and/or kidneys, liver or lung problems, heavy metal poisoning. Too much animal protein could be in some cases not the best, but it depends...
I got big rings under my eyes as a child after I got a serious kidney diseases, (which coincided with the taking of all the vaccins full with mercury.)

Read something weird about how to increase your compost/fertily in soil etc to grow veg/plants/grain, in a cheap way. Redneck gardening. Plants like earth that have dead animals remains, bones, blood etc in it. SO, dead animal in earth = bigger and more veg etc (try telling this to a vegan). So basically if you have a dead rat, snake etc, you burry it in your garden and provides some nourishment for the earth and then plants. BUT...
-Then there was the idea that you could use road kill and use as compost (why not eat the road kill itself???)
-The most absurd idea was to go and kill feral pigs and use it as nourishment for the earth for plants, veg etc...  Taking meat and turning it into fibers????

But cooking some parts of the animal that you won't normally be able to eat (skin, bones...) is for me a plus, less waste, eating the "whole" animal, plus you get some extra nutrition not found in organs and muscle meat.
Sometimes it's not cooked that i crave, but stimulants. I think that taken just as "medecine", or once in a while, it's not too bad.
Coffee mixed with raw whipped egg (whole or only yolk) tastes great. The vietnamese have such a coffee, except that they add condensed milk, which of course would spoil the whole thing. And, you might also add some sweetener/honey in the stuff, but just coffee and egg tastes nice.
And, sometime I miss combinations of food, that can also be done instead of eating cooked mono foods, and experimenting with new combos

Ok, so I know this is not raw , but once in a while I cook chicken wings, somehow I crave the skin, and I feel ok afterwards. (worse would be for me just a piece of muscle, that would be a waste, and taste better raw in my opinion). But for stuff that is too hard to eat raw, personally I don't have a problem cooking it, if it is not too big amounts.
I remember some amazing stuff I had at the local market in Asia: water buffalo skin, was steamed or something, I think, tasted great.

Try to completely stop eating extra salt for some time. Then after some weeks/months, eat something very salty. For me, it tastes disgusting.
I have now been eaten quite a lot of salty food because I was travelling and could not eat my normal food, and I am amazed how used I have become to the taste of salt.

Another thing that can be satisfying if I need cooked starches: beans. They taste great and I can digest them well, if soaked.
I avoid lentils.

I agree with your comment, but concerning energy drinks, its more like a stimulant than a "food", in my opinion. And yes, i agree that we should be able to control what we ingest or not, but concerning kids, maybe the parents don't care/know about the effects of energy drinks, and believe or not, there is now an epidemic of insomnia among children and teen-agers, something that hardly existed years ago. Wifi, electromagnetic radiation plus other toxins and stimulants are some of the causes.

People talk about fermentation as if it would be some sort of art or something... it's become such a trend.
Fermentation happens if you don't use a fridge for instance, or let things age. Or if you don't pasteurise, or deep freeze or freeze dry... We have become obsessed about fermentation just because we are afraid of it! All these evil germs and bacteria that we must exterminate.

Rice is full of arsenic, even organic.
Potatoes absorb poisons easily (both natural or not), plus, they are a poisonous crop! And, they are full of oxalates and other anti-nutrients. I used to crave potatoes years ago, when I went raw/fruitarian. Now, I feel an instinctive dislike of them, it somehow happened overnight, my body tells me potatoes are toxic and they are not satisfying at all anymore.

I have known the answer of this question for many years. If I need to eat cooked food/starches, there is one BIG winner: chestnuts.
But they are not cheap, and not easily available. But they could become! We could plant more of these beautiful trees. They were a staple before grains took over, in many areas both in Europe, America, China/Japan.
The wood is also amazing, strong as oak, but lighter, can grow fast. 

Health / Arsenic: don't eat your vegetables
« on: October 07, 2018, 05:14:37 pm »
Arsenic is present in veg (dark leafy greens, cabbage, brassicas), root crops (such as carrots, beets, radish etc), fruits juices (apple, pear, grapes), rice, organic or not, makes no difference (and brown rice has much higher levels of arsenic), seaweed.
Veg with less arsenic are "fruit" veg such as cucumber, tomatoes, squash.
Groundwater can have high arsenic levels, and rice from Texas for instance is more toxic than in other places in the US, because of previous cotton fields being contaminated with the toxins that are stored in the earth for a long time.
There is also some talks about arsenic in seafood, mussels, dark meat fish, but some say it's a different kind of arsenic and not as toxic. Another source of arsenic is non organic chicken, as they are fed food laced with arsenic, it makes them grow faster and increases their appetite. And the chicken manure of these chickens, used very often on rice fields and other, is full of arsenic.
Bangladesh has a huge arsenic problem in its groundwater, and so all the crops are more or less contaminated and some crops absorb more of the toxins than others (rice, leafy greens, some fish, potatoes, root veg).
