Science / Neanderthal sticky thread
« on: Yesterday at 07:02:32 am »

Since palaeo-anthropologists routinely focus on the Neanderthals, here is a permanent thread on the subject...

I find the taste of raw kidneys to be stronger than raw liver. Trouble is that raw, aged kidneys taste, unsurprisingly, much like urine.

I  have always found the taste of raw kidneys, however aged, to taste far better than the equivalent in raw aged, liver, however aged.

If you can get hold of the raw, reddish, creamy , wettish, kind of marrow, then you are in luck. I had some difficulty when in the UK doing so. Now, in Austria, I can get hold of dry, sawdust-like raw marrow from raw wild boar/moufflon/grassfed beef

Personally, I really, really enjoy the taste of raw kidneys  once they were aged. Once aged, they tasted like urea, when fresh, they tasted marvellous....

Maybe I should make things clearer:-  For c. 13 years+ before I went rawpaleo, I would get awful, very painful stomach-aches after eating any cooked animal food. Never, though, after I went rawpalaeo without raw dairy. When I tried high-meat after c. 3 years, after overcoming  stupid hysteria over raw, aged meats,  it made a huge difference thereon.

If only I could have had the same experience re raw marrow in the UK. Maybe I am becoming too lazy...

Can't you find some solution to speed up the digestion of raw bones by bacteria/soil/worms? How about using smaller bones from animals such as chickens/mice etc.?

Hmm, yes. What would be your opinion on something like an ostrich egg, and from other wild game?

Thanks for the suggestion regarding wild boar and wild moufflon, I can get both of those where I am currently. Also, regarding the wild hare blood, how would you say it tasted compared to blood from domesticated animals (grass-fed and then grain-fed?)?

And what would be your thoughts on tiny lizards and insects? Surely those are legal to kill.
Complicated. I have been considering buying a Livin Farms product that effortlessly breeds and rebreeds mealworms/insects from a type of beetle. Yet, when I first experimented with rawpalaeo-aging, I did not mind(I was desperate at the time) with eating raw grassfed ox tongue, laced with fly-eggs all over, but I could not eat the stuff once the eggs turned into larvae/mealworms, due to disgust.Maybe, with proper nutrition and a cure for my silly hysteria re insects  - after all, in another later experiment, my larvae had been given woodchips to feed upon first, which no doubt made things worse. I did another experiment with cooked grasshoppers, and, while they tasted of nothing(ie bland(, and they did not evoke a pysychological distaste.

The raw wild hare blood tastes truly awesome - it's impossible to describe the  almost-religious-like-experience/drug-like high until you've had it yourself in sufficient amounts - whereas the raw blood I got from raw 100% grassfed ox,  or other sources, had no such effect whatsoever, by comparison - raw blood from grainfed sources tastes even fouler than that. Make sure, if you get raw wild game, to get it vacuum-packed or in a whole carcass freshly killed, or you will never get that same kind of experience. it is a truly  powerful feeling, really invigorating,

Raw eggs? I once ate a raw ostrich egg from the 1st Wholefoods(aka "wholepaycheck") in the UK. It was an unpleasant gimmick, the raw ostrich egg tasted awfully bland and obviously came from an ostrich fed on a 100% grain-filled diet in intensively-farmed conditions. Do what some of our more learned/more driven members do, if you can. such as Iguana/Sabertooth/Eveheart etc.etc., and try to drive to the farm and ascertain what nutrition any domesticated(formerly wild) animals of theirs actually get.The best would be, if you had your own backyard/farm, and had some chickens  etc. of your own to raise your eggs.

Lastly, when it comes to raw eggs from supermarkets, I have noticed that the raw quail eggs do taste way better than the raw chicken eggs. I suspect better nutrition in the former as a result, but feel free to make your own experimentations. Taste, ONCE you have been 90-100% RPD-Instincto for a year or more, is the key to determining the real quality of the raw food.

Also. It's funny that you guys are talking about restoring gut microbes. If you look back at the thread of stomach acids, humans have one of the strongest acids, similar to buzzards and it is thought that the acids are so strong so as to kill pathogens that cause you to get sick. Gut microbes are said to be important but I think maybe the stomach is designed to kill everything and then recolonize the ones that are beneficial after the acid is neutralized before entering the intestines. (Kill them all and let god sort 'em out!) We aren't cows that have a low concentration of stomach acid and depend on microbes to digest our food. For all we know we don't need that many microbes because we were designed to be scavengers and all this talk of them is way overblown.
I heavily disagree.  I noticed a massive difference between when I switched from raw, fresh meats(well up to 3 days from the fridge) to genuine high-meats. The way I see it, the human stomach does indeed wipe out 99% of bacteria in the food coming in, BUT, when one eats raw, aged meats, such as "high-meat", the sheer amount of extra bacteria coming in is enough to avoid being mostly wiped out, so that it adds to the intestinal flora. I am considering seriously doing high-meat for a third of the time from now on, just to see the results.

You're right, of course. So, presumably, even in those times when I was experimenting and eating mainly high-meat, it wasn't really enough.Hmm, my one experience with intestines was with cooked tripe in the dark days before I went rawpalaeo, it was the most disgusting dish I ever ate at the time...  Well, I guess I need to somehow persuade a hunter to give me a whole whole, raw wild game carcass, preferably pre-cut and with the organs in separate vacuum-packs.

Judging from other RVAFers' reports, eggs from (non-inbred) chickens which have been raised on mostly carnivorous diets akin to their wild jungle fowl ancestors, tend to taste the best and are more nutritious.

My problem is that I can get hold raw wild game easily except from May-September(other than raw wildcaught seafood), but I am unable to get hold of most of the raw organ-meats, except occasionally. Getting a hunter's licence is way too expensive, and even just killing an animal costs a hefty bit extra. I can get hold of a variety of raw organ meats from standard domesticated animals like pigs/cows, but, admittedly, the quality is a lot "less worse" than in the rest of Europe as Austria has higher standards than the other intensively-farmed countries.

In the UK, I used to get hold of raw wild hares in vacuum-packed form., without the intestines. I would get a pint of raw blood that was the most invigorating substance I had ever consumed, along with raw meat that was itself also drenched with raw blood for better taste. I would also get the tiny organs such as raw heart, raw liver etc. I found raw swordfish, raw oysters, raw crabs, raw lobster, and raw mussels to be the best raw seafood.Just take care to leach out all the saltwater from the mussels first, beforehand. Re muscle-meat:- I highly recommend raw wild boar and raw wild moufflon.

I can't see how cooked bone could be useful for the soil, let alone as food. You'd just be poisoning the worms etc.

Perhaps you could just grind up raw egg-shells?

I thought I should point out that wild animals do not necessarily eat the whole animal. I remember reading ages ago about lions and other carnivores like cheetahs carefully removing the part containing the faeces, for example. Other animals such as killer whales often just eat the tongue of raw whale calves. Cats generally eat the whole animal. I think it's a question of the size of the digestive tract of the prey. If it is small, it's not an issue, but intestines of  larger herbivores  contain lots of faecal and vegetable matter, which might put off some carnivores.

I actually know Paleophil in real life, we happen to live in neighboring towns here in Vermont. Your characterization of him is not remotely accurate. Why do you feel the need to tear people down like that, when you have never met them and live thousands of miles away?
I gave my opinion. His behaviour was too much like Nicola in always coming up with mysterious new negative symptoms every so often and regular  switching from 1 dietary theme to another. Nothing wrong with that in the initial stages, just a bit odd to find someone doing that years later. I was not trying to "tear him down", I even pointed out that he was a clever person and wrote interesting stuff on this forum.  Anyway,my main theme  was to debunk the notion that RVAF diets as a whole create endless  problems in the long-term. Sure, some don't fare well on raw, zero-carb or on too many carbs or cannot tolerate raw dairy etc., but people generally work  out what's suitable for themselves after the initial experiments.

Hmm, I could, of course, have been more diplomatic, and made my points without necessarily  mentioning specific individuals.  -[

I've already sent 2 PMs to GS. Hope something happens, this is really annoying.
