Off Topic / obese monks in Thailand

I think that they are allowed to eat some meat, but in general they eat much more tofu and fake meat made of soy. Tofu/soy is definitely going to trigger some oestrogens and make they more overweight.
Because they have their last meal around mid-day, and are not allowed to eat after that, so they drink a lot sugary drinks and sometimes energy drinks. The food offered for free in the mornings is sometimes also packaged junk food...

Off Topic / food poisoning killing in India

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-15/11-dead-after-food-poisoning-at-indian-temple/10624124

Read the last part about the school children dead because of cooking oil stored in a container previously used for pesticides?

This one of the main reasons I don't travel anymore to India and other places around: pesticides. It's totally out of control.

Off Topic / Growth hormone identical in cow and human
« on: December 13, 2018, 10:04:24 pm »
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.

Found this on "notmilk.com":


HEADLINE:

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

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!

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

https://www.theguardian.com/food/shortcuts/2018/oct/31/bulls-penis-and-fermented-horse-milk-why-do-we-find-some-foods-disgusting

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

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).

Off Topic / cravings... what your body needs/wants?

Not sure how serious this study is:
http://www.dailytransformations.com/food-cravings-here-is-what-your-body-really-wants/
But maybe some interesting points like craving for bread = eat more high protein foods.

... are found not only in fish and mussels but also in some chickens (Mexican), some brands of sea salt, some honey and beer, quite a lot in bottled water and indoor dust.

Health / Teeth
« on: July 02, 2018, 12:08:32 am »
I have very sensitive teeth (because they actually somehow damaged), and I can feel after I've eaten/drank something, how my teeth and their roots are reacting. Here are some observations:
Good:
-Raw animal fat feels really great for my teeth, also raw meat, sometimes organs
-sometimes alcohol, fermented stuff, green tea, some greens.
Bad:
-chocolate, coffee, too cold/hot food, grains, too much sugar (though moderate amount don't bother me)

Off Topic / Traditional asian foods... some amazing stuff:
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:16:40 pm »
Some cool recipes in Asia mostly, not really raw paleo, but... quite near in some cases, not really mono meals:
Bali: Lawar relish (mostly raw, onion, spices, coconut, fresh herbs and veg, though not always all ingredients raw) and sometimes mixed with raw pig blood.
Yunnnan, south China: raw pig sashimi, including skin
Japan: high quality free-range raw chicken sashimi in nice teriyaki restaurant, apparently tasty and tender.
Korea: fermented raw fish sashimi
Hawaii:
-Lomi lomi  (some sort of salad with tomato-onion plus raw fish)
-Poke: raw fish/tuna, tender with marinade, apparently amazing stuff.
Never tried any of these things, but honestly... quite tempting. What I like with S E Asia is that because they dont really rely on dairy, they are big fans of animal fats and innards/organs, even if cooked.
I have noticed that many people addicted to dairy are disgusted by animals fats and organs. (Which is quite a majority of people in the West).

Off Topic / mussels with opioids?
« on: June 01, 2018, 05:03:38 pm »
https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/38913/20180526/seattles-puget-sound-mussels-test-positive-for-opiods.htm

Not sure what to think about it. If there are that much opioids in those waters, it could also be some smugglers dumping their stash in the water if they though they might get caught... But on the other hand, I have read that the US is nowadays the only place among modern countries where heavy drugs use in increasing, and specifically heroin.
I do know that in Stockholm for instance, a city that prides it self for having good quality tap water safe for drinking, there was some tests confirming a high presence of pharmaceuticals and especially antidepressants. The pee/sewage water is recycled into "safe" water (sounds kind of disgusting actually), which is not that safe.

Something similar has happened to the Chernobyl area, lots of wildlife has come back/taken over.

Off Topic / worms eating plastic
« on: June 01, 2018, 04:26:16 am »
I have tried live wax worms, they are really tasty.
As they have the ability to eat beeswax, maybe that could the reason:
https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/37569/20170425/bizarre-plastic-eating-wax-worm-might-be-the-answer-to-plastic-pollution.htm

But I would not want to eat some that have just eaten plastic.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / fluorescent bananas
« on: May 20, 2018, 07:55:05 pm »
To those who eat/have eaten unripe fruits. UV sensitive animals can pick the ripe bananas:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/6152638/Bananas-turn-bright-blue-under-ultra-violet-light-helping-animals-pick-ripe-ones.html

I never eat bananas in Europe, they taste boring after haven tried so many different kinds in Asia, and quite often with some seed(s) in them. Local super ripe bananas are amazing.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Now is the right time of the year for ...
« on: April 29, 2018, 03:25:37 am »
... honey bee larvae ! Anyway here in Germany. If you ask a bee keeper, he/she usually get rid of the extra "males" (still larvae), this time of the year if you are lucky,  and you get normally the whole thing with the wax. I chew the whole thing and spit out the wax, were juicy. I heard the russians squeeze out the liquid from the wax.
Btw, they were still alive, so this is really live food.
