Hot Topics / Long-Term Consumption of a Raw Food Diet

Long-Term Consumption of a Raw Food Diet Is Associated with Favorable Serum LDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides but Also with Elevated Plasma Homocysteine and Low Serum HDL Cholesterol in Humans

In conclusion, the present study indicates that a strict raw food diet may result in remarkably low serum total cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations. However, the elevated tHcy as well as the low HDL cholesterol concentrations in participants in this study could provide a mechanistic explanation of the higher mortality from coronary heart disease in vegans compared with ovo-lacto-vegetarians, which was reported in a recent meta-analysis of prospective studies.   A high tHcy concentration accompanied by a low HDL level may result in endothelial dysfunction via impaired bioavailability of NO. In contrast, studies of moderate ovo-lacto-vegetarian diets suggest that well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life-cycle including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence and reduce risk for diseases.  Changing the ratio of raw food intake toward an extreme regimen with a very low intake of vitamin B-12 may be harmful in the prevention of coronary heart disease rather than providing additional benefits as occurs with milder dietary regimens.

You want stories of times I lived on communes - would that be a good start?

Married 3 times - first one was a horror story - second one she died one week prior to 9/11 - that was the lowest point of my life - almost offed myself then - never thought I would get lucky again but I met my current wife and it will be 10 years soon

I'll start off by saying that I love raw ground beef.  I started eating it when I was a youngster - my mother would be making a meat loaf and I would lick the pan so to speak.  My diet now consists of raw grass fed ground beef, pastured eggs, chinese bone vegetable soup, some  fruit (bananas and frozen berries) that I put in my morning coconut milk fat bomb smoothie, lacto-fermented veggies like sauerkraut, beets, etc., coconut oil, pastured butter, etc.  Looking forward to being a part of this community as it's been a long wild ride so far.
