Apparently, the government has abandoned the plant because the radiation has become too high.

Well... Shit. Not good. :(

Another +1 for bison.  ;D

It is more flavorful than beef, and I feel my best on it. If it is grain fed bison though, get the beef instead.

Thanks for the article Techydude. I'm going to read it and rub it in the faces of my circumcised friends who argue that the foreskin serves no function and removing it has all sorts of benefits.  -d  Luckily I grew up in a place where circumsition was not a common practice.

Same here. XD

Live Geiger counter in Tokyo:

Also, I would hate to be the guy who has to work there now to keep the cores cool. I wouldn't do it for millions of dollars.

Or this?

This song has great meaning for all of us here probably.

I trust no government agency. If the FDA recommends something, it is probably better to do the exact opposite.

Chemicals used to bother me a lot. I always quickly left an area whenever there was a chemical scent like acetylaldehyde. They would give me massive headaches. Your intolerance to chemicals might mean that your body's antioxidant systems are overloaded and can't stand any additional chemical input. So... I guess don't cheat? XD

Vitamin A: Livers will provide you 100% RDA in one ounce. Amazing, really.
Vitamin C: Certain organs have this vitamin in good quantity when raw. Fruits obviously will always have the advantage here.
Vitamin E: Your need will be variable here. If you avoid highly unsaturated fats, your need will be less. Grass fed meats will have much more E.
Vitamin K: Now... This is probably more tricky to get. Fermented foods tend to have more of these in the superior K2 form. You can get it from egg yolks, cheeses(If you insist on dairy.), and I would assume fermented meat would have it, but I'm not sure about this. No data is available on K2 content of spoiled meat. There is a lot of K1 in leafy greens.
Thiamine: If you eat meat in high quantities, you should meet the requirements. Kidneys and livers are good sources. If you have no squeamishness about eating raw pork/boar, you could eat them as the muscle meat is high in thiamine.
Vitamin B6: Eating enough meat/organs should give you no problem in getting enough. Eating over 300g of muscle/organ should meet the requirement.
Folate: It is not found in good quantities in muscle meat. You should eat organs often to keep up. Egg yolks are also a good source.

Calcium needs are overestimated. There is no way one can get 1000mg of calcium without copious dairy consumption, which is not recommended.
Magnesium: Grass fed/healthy animals will likely have more of this mineral. Keep in mind minerals are more bioavailable in meats than in plants. Also, plants have antinutrients that inhibit absorption of minerals besides magnesium. Without these antinutrients and the bioavailability of the mineral, you probably would not need as much as others would.
Sodium: Need will vary. Keep in mind that in a ketogenic state there is accelerated sodium loss. This will manifest as dehydration despite drinking a lot fluids and muscle cramps. Blood provides sodium/potassium in proper ratios. Unfortunately, this is not a commonly sold item. There are some here that seem to be against added salt to the diet, but it can be an option if you feel deficient while on an extremely low carb diet. Just use celtic sea salt and not refined BS. In my experience adding celtic sea salt to my water has been more hydrating than plain.
Copper: Lower copper in my opinion is a good thing, but if you want a good source liver will provide a LOT. Too much maybe to eat regularly in fact.

I have this massive craving for fish roe, but I really don't know how to get good sources. I remember having stewed fish roe sacks regularly years ago, and they were some of the best tasting food I have ever eaten. I have no idea how they taste raw yet.

EDIT: Wait... XD I just remembered that I had salmon/tuna roe sushi before.

Yeah, don't eat starches and meats/fats together. It gives me indigestion too. It's especially bad, if you sandwich eating the starches between eating meats during a meal.

I remember when I first started eating large amounts of animal fat in place of carbs, my mouth was extremely dry and I was exhausted in the mornings. I eventually adapted to using fats for energy, and I don't have these symptoms anymore.

If fat isn't the problem for you, have you thought about the possibility of a mineral imbalance?

I can't upload an avatar, so maybe it is because of this new server.

Oh my gosh max, sue me. Why are you such an anal neurotique? If you have ANY raw meat in your diet, and recognize raw foods as the healthiest way to eat, that makes you RAF (PD, Paleo, wtf ever you want to call it.) Why do you have to be a raw NAZI and be so concerned about what other people are doing?

The vast majority of my diet is raw animal food, I'm no newbie, except to this forum, I've got three years raw animal guts under my belt, so bite me!  :-*

Just because I'm not so retarded that I need stress myself about whether or not every little morsel of food is raw or not, doesn't change the fact that I'm aware that raw foods are the way to go, and anything less is less than optimal.

There are other reasons why people eat food you know. Just like sex, food can be for more than function. When I learn how to make a raw pate, that's what I'll do, until then, I happen to enjoy the hell out of a good homemade grassfed liver pate.

Why don't you learn to relax a bit and enjoy all of life's blessing's, instead of focusing pathologically on your health. Kind of self defeating isn't it?
Related, I guess.

African tribal men eat cows' menstrual matter and grow huge testicles

That looks like it can be incredibly painful. :o

Live and learn from fools and from sages.

The more Guru-Guinea pigs we have to use as whipping boys for arguments for positive affirmations and negative reinforcements, the better.

+9001 internets for Aerosmith reference.  ;D

Anyways, I really doubt gurus would admit that they were wrong, when their health starts to fail. Human beings tend to really dislike "losing face."

I'm pretty sure mine are inferior. XP I've been on low testosterone levels forever. Part of it may be genetics. I don't know.

Wow, I never heard of anyone that had bad reactions to all EFAs.  ???

Do you have chemical sensitivities to things like perfume/cologne, cigarette smoke, aerosols?

Do you feel bad on all polyunsaturated fats? How do monounsaturated and saturated fats affect you?

If you are having negative reactions to omega 3 fatty acids, then you probably don't have enough of the longer chain fatty acids in the omega 6 pathway. I would assume that fruitarianism has left you with impaired insulin sensitivity and unfortunately this inhibits the conversion of ALA and LA into fatty acids further down the chain by inhibiting the enzyme Delta-6-Desaturase.

Linoleic -(Delta-6-Desaturase)> Gamma linolenic -> DGLA (Precursor to anti-inflammatory prostaglandins)

GLA and DGLA is more difficult to obtain from diet than the other EFAs. For people without nutritional deficiencies(biotin, vitamin E, protein, zinc, B12 and B6) and low insulin levels, this would not be an issue. There is probably a need for a balance between the longer chain omega 3 and 6s, and the imbalance caused by more higher end omega 3s compared to omega 6s is possibly causing issues. This is my theory anyways.


A second possibly that I can think of is that your ability to deal with oxidative stressors, such as polyunsaturated fats, is faulty. I mention this because you said that you had problems with nuts which are high in omega 6(You probably don't convert LA well into GLA so the nuts may be not be helping).

It could be just one or both of these. I'm only stating possibilities.

Correcting nutritional deficiencies is a b****. There seems to be a point of no return or hard to return when it comes to health, when it is difficult to establish equilibrium again.

I have wanted to eat RAF/RVAF for some time and I would bring this up often in conversation (the fact that it is cooked meat that is carcinogenic).  I am really developing a taste for raw meat the longer I eat it (only been just over a week).  It was bland at first but now I find it incredibly tasteful!  Raw eggs I can take or leave, I am not sure it would be the best way to go introducing others to RAF.  Maybe if I try raw eggs again in another month they will have more flavor.  I think my taste buds or the brain receptors for them are adjusting to raw, and the meat tastes better every day.

My younger brother has started eating meat after going through a bout of IBS, I think the doctor gave him some good advice (for once).  Too many doctors accept that vegetarianism is healthy. 

Of course my older brother (the die hard vegetarian) will eventually see that the meat eaters have better health, but I would rather it not reach that point.  Oh well, I do what I can.

I think when he finds out I am eating raw meat he will just think I am crazy.  But he already thinks that, I think.

Have you tried only eating the egg yolk. It is absolutely delicious this way. It is the part of my meal that I look most forward to. Don't be afraid of being different. People tend to think that I am also crazy or weird, but I shrug it off. Being like everyone is else is boring after all. ;)

I'd look around health food stores in the area.

I would think that most health food stores tend toward vegetarianism/veganism. That has been my experience at least.
