General Discussion / Bovine Lukemia virus
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:33:34 am »
Hi. I heard on Jeff Rense's program that Beef(canadian and American) contains BLV(above). A few  internet searches seem to confirm this. Is this the case with grain-fed beef and/or all BEEF?

General Discussion / egg yolks
« on: April 01, 2012, 12:52:54 am »
Hi: I have a few questions about the venerable egg yolk:
(1) are there any nutrients LACKING in egg yolks that must be derived from other sources; ie. are they a "whole food" sufficient by themselves
(2) how does one preserve egg yolks to avoid oxidization of cholesterol(eg. air tight containers; in fridge, etc.)?
(3)  what should be added to the diet in addition to eggs if one wishes to go vegetarian(I know: blaspheme!)

General Discussion / egg diet
« on: March 27, 2012, 07:34:20 am »
Hey everyone. Researching the pesticide content of meat I have decided to focus on eggs as the staple of my diet: any criticism to the following? Any nutrients lacking in eggs that would necessitate another dietary addition(such as liver)? Keep in mind I am stranded and have little access to quality food: it's either grain-fed beef or eggs plus grain-fed liver....? what should I do?

General Discussion / Omega 6
« on: March 26, 2012, 11:44:33 am »
Does the ratio between Omega-3 and Omega-6 ratios matter? If I consume mainly eggs(say 2 dozen per day), would this be a problem in created a skewed ratio between the omega fats(assuming store bought eggs). I have found that no great inflammation occurs but...just to be on the safe side prior to testing this diet....what do people think about thisissue of Omegas.

General Discussion / Flatulence
« on: March 26, 2012, 11:10:17 am »
What causes more flatulence: beef or eggs? I have been having trouble with both and wonder if I'm consuming simply too much?(1 dozen eggs and 1 lb. of ground beef per day)? ANyone had similar experiences?

General Discussion / RAW EGGS
« on: March 23, 2012, 08:32:12 am »
Hi. I am wondering if the whites contain antinutrients that reduce protein absortion by interfering with enzymes that assist in protein absoption. I can't remember the source but I heard this somewhere. Also: glutathione and egg whites? Is this a good reason to consume the whites? Also:  Would it cause digestive upsets to consume say, 2 dozen eggs raw per day?  Would it be unhealthy? I found that cooking the whites(to preserve the protein content) that I got an upset stomach consuming 2 dozen. Is this maybe attributable to sulfur content in the eggs? I would like to avoid beef and meat giving the pesticide content in store bought varieties. Currently I cannot obtain quality meat and given the way the world is headed I am not sure about the reliability of meat as a dietary staple. I would like to have my own chickens and consume mainly eggs. Advice would be greatly appreciated....

General Discussion / EPSOM salts(magnesium sulfate)
« on: March 06, 2012, 05:23:52 am »
Would this be a possible perhaps ideal source of magnesium? Or toxic???

General Discussion / acids and bases ph the body as chemistry set
« on: March 06, 2012, 04:59:46 am »
Is it a myth that acidic foods should be avoided? Why or why not. I have been hearing that calcification of the soft tissues can occur through consuming acidic foods. What are some thoughts on this?

General Discussion / cheese
« on: March 04, 2012, 07:47:01 am »
A simple question: should one include cheese in the diet?
I do but am seriously considering eliminating it to avoid calcification of the soft tissues and casein protein. What are the communities'  thoughts on cheese and its benefits/detriments?

General Discussion / raw beef fat
« on: February 21, 2012, 12:19:10 pm »
how long does raw beef fat last out of the fridge? I am thinking of the post-apocalypse(post NWO takeover).
Answers would be nice.

General Discussion / Herbs and vegetable matter
« on: February 10, 2012, 02:41:37 am »
Are they a necessity in diet? I personally feel that the fibre is a desirable thing as without the stools come out hard and with difficulty. Anyone had similar experiences? Why not include herbs and vegetables? If not why not? If so what types would be the best? I am currently incorporating boiled cabbage and dried parsley and oregano as well as turmeric, garlic, ginger, cayenne, black pepper, paprika(all in dried or powdered form as I don't like to waste time cooking and minimizing preparation). What are the arguments for and against including vegetable matter in the diet?

General Discussion / SUET shelf life rancidity
« on: February 09, 2012, 01:12:30 am »
Hi. Is 'SUET' raw beef/mutton fat? According to wikipedia it is....
My question is what is its shelf-life out of the fridge/in the fridge and #2 does it go rancid, if so under what conditions(prolonged oxygen exposure? heat?). PLease advise as I would like to get out of the habit of cooking...also  wikipedia says it contains over 800kcal. per 100 grams...this seems an inflated figure. Care to elaborate on this anyone?

General Discussion / fermentation and goitrogens
« on: February 04, 2012, 02:27:49 am »
Hi. I would like to know what sort of vegetables can be fermented from a raw state which don't contain goitrogens. I have recently heard that sauerkraut contains alot and that it should be avoided for this reason.  Any thoughts. I am looking mainly into probiotic substances that don't necessarily require refrigeration(at least for a good while).

General Discussion / routine criticism
« on: February 04, 2012, 02:25:21 am »
Hi everyone. I have recently developed a new set of routines for diet and exercise and would appreciate some criticism. Here it is:

(1) (wake-up)--mobilize the joints then: magnesium/zinc/vitamin d/ vitamin c with a 1/2 cup of lemon juice
(walk with a weight vest for 40 minutes)
Meal 1: 1 dozen egg yolks/ 40-50 grams of cheese / dried parsley and oregano / 2 tbsps gelatin powder / 12 coffee beans / handful of boiled cabbage
meal 2: 8 oz. beef with culture butter or tallow (+ 1 vitamin d)
Workout(weights 45 minutes)
meal 3: 1 dozen egg whites / cheese(50 grams)(or liver 6 oz. every 3rd day) coconut+ spices and herbs mag/zinc/vit.d/vit.c
walk with vest(again)
meal 4: meat(8 oz.) + butter or tallow(+ 1 vitamin d)

Let me know what you think.

General Discussion / Unusual FOOD
« on: January 31, 2012, 02:02:30 am »
I hear that in the orient certain kinds of meat are viable options. The list includes such fare as canine and feline varieties of all sorts and descriptions as well as rodents. Perhaps those in the western world would be better advised to avail themselves of the domesticated fare in place of throwing away societies resources on "pleasure animals", a.k.a 'pets. Just a thought for the environmentally inclined. Why not eat DOGGIES and KITTIES? I hear many a pup is given away and needs a home...why not in the oven? Seriously...if the PC crowd advocates chopping the balls off animals so they can't live a "NATURAL" life propagating their won kind would it not be better to make them into food? Whould this be unhealthy given the diet of most domesticated pets? Let me hear you thoughts(p.s try to keep the moralizing to tolerable levels)...

General Discussion / ephedrine
« on: January 31, 2012, 02:01:23 am »
Ever heard of "ephedrine"? Ever used it? I have and found(a decade ago) that it was not only addictive but extremely effective in burning fat and jolting the CNS to raise awareness to the stratosphere. Now I know it is not as trendy as recreational drugs like MJ and cocaine and alchohol but, given its positive effects, would it not be a good idea to supplement on occasion with? Why or why not. Keep in mind it is a synthetic compound derived from a plant and could be construed(in some possible world) as "natural"...

General Discussion / Animal meal
« on: January 31, 2012, 02:00:29 am »
Ever considered eating:
Fish meal
krill meal
crab meal
lobster meal
meal worm meal
or for that matter any other 'meal'? I have although I must say I have reservations based on sneaking suspicions that the content of the meal is possibly full of toxins. Nevertheless I would be willing to give it a go on the following grounds:
(1) survival food. The 'meal' can be powdered and stored for 2+years.
(2) It is an 'on-the-go' type food that can be mixed with anything or consumed by itself(just ad water!).
(3) It is cost effective and can be ordered in bulk quantities(at approx. $1/lb).

The variety of 'meals', which I take to be used as livestock feed(or domesticated animal feed) is sufficiently varied that it could constitute a staple in one's diet and furnish one with a broad range of nutrients. So my question is: is it a healthful option? Why or why not?
In a way it could be considered an envronmentally friendly option as the constituents of the 'meals' are the cast-offs of the products others consume(the 'fancy' foods).Let me know your thoughts.

Hot Topics / olive oil: clarity and quality
« on: January 15, 2012, 09:34:30 am »
I recently bought some olive oil that came in a large can and that was very clear when I opened it and poured it out. What does the clarity of olive oil say about its quality? It claimed to be "olive oil" 100% on the tin and the remaining selections were in clear bottles. My question is whether this is worth consuming or should I discard it altogether? I am currently in a remote location and have no access to better quality food fats other than butter and rendered corn-fed tallow. Any recommendations?

General Discussion / lemon juice and digestion
« on: January 14, 2012, 08:54:16 am »
Hi again everyone. I am wondering whether it would be hazardous to health to consume lemon juice daily(and how much)? I am thinking that it will aid digestion and clean out the tract of potentially lethal fecal matter etc. But...I am also thinking that it may create an overly acidic PH of body fluids and possible tooth decay. Would anyone have any advisements as to how much I should or shouldn't drink? And how...

General Discussion / omega 6 and eggs
« on: January 14, 2012, 08:50:54 am »
Hi everyone. My question is whether the omega 6 content in eggs is a negative factor in keeping their dietary volume high, I have been eating 1 doz. per day for over 1 year now and would like to reduce the amount of meat I consume. Would anyone think either the current level too high omega-6 FFAs and/or that increasing to 18 per day would be too much on the high side? Please let me know whats up with this issue(eg. health problems)...

General Discussion / egg yolks and oxidized cholesterol
« on: August 12, 2011, 06:08:39 am »
Hi all. Just wondering under what conditions raw egg yolk cholesterol would become oxidized. If I take a dozen and put them in a bowl while I cook up the whites(10 minutes) and, for sake of argument, all the yolks break, would the cholesterol oxidize in this time or am I off track re: conditions/causes of O2 cholesterol? Feedback appreciated.

Hot Topics / Omega-6: significant at what point?
« on: August 11, 2011, 10:37:07 pm »

At what point(say in terms of grams)-for the average person- do omega-6 fats become significant as deleterious to health? Assume a skewed ration of 1:20 for Omega-3:Omega-6 in the diet? At what point-in grams or other measure- does this EVEN matter? Why not consume (relative to percent of PUFAs) products that have a very skewed ratio of omega fats (high 6, low 3) and yet little omega fats at all---in high doses? eg. lbs. of grain-fed beef(high fat), tallow, eggs, butter, etc.... When should one start to worry about inflammation and the gamut of other problems bound up with 0-6?

General Discussion / agri-economics and nutritional adequacy
« on: August 11, 2011, 10:24:31 pm »

A simple example illustrates the intent of this question: Product A:free-range, grain-fed chicken eggs: $6.00/dozen Product B:factory eggs: $2.30/dozen

Weighing costs and benefits, would it not behoove one to simply up the intake of Product B and forgo product A altogether if one desires to increase nutrient intake? I mean this with regards to: beef, cheeses, eggs, butter, organs, and all other animal products and by-products. It seems the organic folk are very good salespeople.

General Discussion / ALEs and rendering fat: raw=better?
« on: August 09, 2011, 09:31:21 pm »

Is it better to consume trimmings raw or to render? My concerns are due to the following doubts:In heating fats for an extended period of time, when do ALEs begin to occur in the fat(if at all)? I once roomed with a chinese guy in school who simmered meat for multiple days, then sat down and ate the whole thing. I recently 'rendered'(albeit poorly) trimmings of beef fat(tallow) from the butcher's and left it in a pot overnight on approx. 100 degrees F. Upon taking it ouot it had a bit of crusty brownishness to it. Would heating fats for this long(approx. 11 hours) create Advanced lipoxidation end-products(ALEs)? If so, what can be done to prevent this while rendering fat? Any feeedback would be appreciated. P.S: soon I will be terminating usage of electricity. Any feedback on how to render fat(eg. with what equipment if any; battery-powered, etc.)?

General Discussion / cholesterol woes
« on: August 06, 2011, 03:07:32 am »

Should one consume as much cholesterol as possible in the diet? I am consuming 1 dozen eggs, 1 lb. of beef, 200 grams of butter each day and 7 oz. of liver every second day(substitution for 1x 1/2 lb. serving of beef). What should I do people: increase cholesterol containing foods, decrease or stay the course? My interests are in enhancing brain function, feelings of well-being and testosterone levels. Advice is nice, when corroborated with sound science/folk wisdom or personal anecdotes
