The most recent theory connects cancer to evolution and our ancestors far far back in time.

"We envisage cancer as the execution of an ancient program pre-loaded into the genomes of all cells," says Davies, an Arizona State University Regents Professor. "It is rather like Windows defaulting to 'safe mode' after suffering an insult of some sort." As such, he describes cancer as a throwback to an ancestral phenotype.

"As cancer progresses through its various stages within a single organism, it should be like running the evolutionary and developmental arrows of time backward at high speed," says Davies.

This could provide clues to future treatments. For example, when life took the momentous step from single cells to multicellular assemblages, Earth had low levels of oxygen. Sure enough, cancer reverts to an ancient form of metabolism called fermentation, which can supply energy with little need for oxygen, although it requires lots of sugar.

I'm on couchsurfing too, it's an awesome concept.
I won't be able to visit this year, too many trips already, but we can plan better for next year!

??? Where do you come from? In Italy, almost every one eats raw animal food (e. g., "prosciutto crudo" - air-dried ham). In Germany almost every one eats raw animal food too (e. g., "Mett" - minced and seasoned raw pork).
I guess I only meet the rest of the almost everyone.. I'm from Southeast Europe though, eating raw animal food is absolutely unheard of here.

I'll check if I find cheap flight I'll definitely come by. I've been around there, in Ventimiglia, Monte Carlo, San Remo, Nice, etc. it's a beautiful coast. It would be really nice to meet some like-minded rawpaleos, most people I know are scared of touching raw animal food let alone eating it.

From what I've read, the theory for the dreams effect is that p5p combines with tryptophan to produce extra serotonin in the brain and elsewhere. This is especially popular with those interested to experience vivid/lucid dreams, and is supposed to work best when you take larger amount before sleep and combine with some protein rich in tryptophan (like cheese).
I tried p5p inspired by your posts, and the next day I had such a strongly vivid dream, then searched around a bit and discovered the above theory. That was the only effect I've noticed. Btw, you don't want to take above 200mg from what I read, otherwise you get numbing/tingling at the extremities, and is potentially dangerous for the brain.

Haha of course she showed you examples. So what were the parasites like, did they have legs and head, etc?
Blood parasites cause very serious illness, stuff like malaria.
Most common blood parasites:
She's saying that most people on american diet have some of those parasites, and you believe her?

I've also noticed that various therapies, such as going gluten-free, then going Paleo, then going LC Paleo, then raw LC Paleo, have excellent short-term effects for me, including often some euphoria in the early days, but then some of the old symptoms gradually start to creep back--so subtly it's almost imperceptible until it gets bad enough to notice.
Same here, it's a lot of placebo. I hope the pyroluria therapy is not just placebo for you though.

I think the frozen meat might be a big part of the problem.
Sorry but that's ridiculous. You certainly will not get colon cancer because of frozen meet! Not even 1%
Stuff like cancer simply happen and that's it, just accept it's normal part of life.

Sorry to hear about your difficult situation. Thank you for sharing it with us, it's important for people to understand that a 100% raw diet does not automatically translate to 100% perfect health till the day you die.
All the best, I hope you have a quick recovery!

These guys are a joke.

This cooked food stuff looks like just another business idea to generate more money, as it is appealing to far more people than a straight raw diet which many see as crazy or quickly fail to stick to. In other words their primary concern is making money. Check their "raw till 4" program.

Health / Re: anybody ever get colds anymore?
« on: June 17, 2013, 04:01:25 am »
How long are you doing RPD Dr. D? 3 weeks?
The chance that any such events like not getting the cold could be associated to your short eating of raw food is tiny.

1. Eating low quality food (antibiotic or hormone-laced, grain-fed animal foods, pesticide laced vegetables and fruits)
This could not be the case -- it's not like you would have been eating better than the above low-quality food before going into raw paleo diet, and then suddenly start eating it once you start raw paleo. It's much more likely that you'd continue eating the same, or more likely higher quality food. So any issues arising after going into a raw paleo diet are unlikely to be caused by the quality of the food. Unless low-quality food becomes higher-quality when cooked.

I'm in some similar situation to be honest, but certainly not that bad as you describe. Just some small issues when compared to a "healthy" cooked diet. Many things get fixed, others get (tiny bit) worse. For me at least, the pros outweigh by far the cons.

What was your BMI, were you by any chance too underweight? Number one problem for me is getting enough calories / gaining weight.

Now that you're doing a cooked diet, why don't you try one by one part of it raw? For example only the meat raw for one month, if things go well just continue with it and try something else raw. This way you can figure out better what was the issue.

12.4 mg / 4 oz of kidney is not significant when our "daily recommendation" is 500 mg/day.
The RDA is more like 60mg as far as I know, not 500mg.

It's certainly not disproved, e.g. the latest studies I've seen find that sunscreen for example reduces skin cancer as well as its aging.

Therefore, during this period .... I am either eating cooked bad bad food.
Well that's ridiculous, if you think that cooked bad bad food could in any way be better than raw grain-fed beef.
So yes, just go ahead and mix that fat with grain-fed beef, it will be far better ;)

Also, to avoid the gaps in supply of grass-fed, you can buy in bulk when it's available and freeze it (if you have a freezer).

General Discussion / Re: How much do you guys spend a month on food?
« on: June 11, 2013, 04:27:46 pm »
200 eur/month, in Germany. But lately I'm eating a lot more fish than meat, so it's going up to 250-300.

Interesting stuff
Prior to this research, the earliest known bone cancers occurred in samples approximately 1000-4000 years old.

"Evidence for cancer is extremely rare in the human fossil record. This case shows that Neanderthals, living in an unpolluted environment, were susceptible to the same kind of cancer as living humans."

Lovely, so we'd have PHds collecting garbage.
110 is not some limit for genius level IQ, but for slightly above average.
75% of all people have IQ below 110. 0.1% of all people are scientists/researchers.
So you're slightly wrong...

Yes, it's because you drastically decreased fiber intake. Eventually you'll have a small BM once in 2-3 days or so.

General Discussion / Re: What time do you guys sleep?
« on: June 04, 2013, 02:26:19 am »
Going to sleep varies, but waking up is almost always 8-9AM (I don't use alarm).
On average it's 7.8 hrs sleep.

Iq of the world has also been constantly dropping every year over the past few decades which is another indication that many people have lowered iqs due to the biological warfare they have been subjected to.
Not really..

Any country that would implement TD's idea would probably become a leading country in the world in 100-200 years.

Hah, and few days later something contradicting appears :)
L-Carnitine Significantly Improves Patient Outcomes Following Heart Attack
These findings may seem to contradict those reported in a study published earlier this month in Nature Medicine by Robert A. Koeth and others (link below), which demonstrated that metabolism by intestinal microbiota of dietary L-carnitine produced trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) and accelerated atherosclerosis in mice. They also noted that omnivorous human subjects produced more TMAO than did vegans or vegetarians following ingestion of L-carnitine, and suggested a possible direct link between L-carnitine, gut bacteria, TMAO, and atherosclerosis and risk of ischemic heart disease.

"The Nature Medicine paper is of interest," agrees senior investigator Carl J. Lavie, M.D.,FACC,FACP,FCCP, Medical Director of the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention Center at the John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute at the University of Queensland School of Medicine in New Orleans, "but the main study reported there was in animals, and unlike our study, lacks hard outcomes." He also notes that "there are various forms of 'carnitine' and our relatively large meta-analysis specifically tested L-carnitine on hard outcomes in humans who had already experienced acute myocardial infarction."
