Juice, wine, cider, vinegar
« on: February 09, 2011, 04:24:48 pm »
Is there anything wrong with using apple cider vinegar/ vinegar? I see it as beneficial especially for restoring an acidic stomach/increasing stomach acid to digest meat.

This the usual way of thinking practiced by dieticians – nutritionists and more generally by everyone in the so called civilized world. It supposes that we have knowledge and might over nature, that we can interfere with natural processes to superintend it and direct it in the way we want without risk of side effects nor of any unforeseen consequences.  

Unfortunately, our knowledge is not only in constant evolution but it remains extremely poor compared to the complexity of the Universe and living phenomenon, so that our grandiose and brilliant interventions generally result latter in catastrophic situations - even if it may seem successful and beneficial in the short term.    

What is the instinctos stance on this topic?

- Juicing is not paleo. Humans are the first animal to ever make juice, just like they are the first to cook, mix foodstuff and drink milk from other species, moreover even when in adulthood.
- In a juice you mix several individual fruits or vegetables and parts, some of them being possibly bad.  
- The instinct may be fooled by such a processed stuff.
- Still, vinegar usually tastes awful: a fruit containing a lot of acetic acid would hardly be eaten by an human being.
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler
