Science / Re: Betaine for working out and for weak stomach acid
« on: June 18, 2018, 03:18:41 pm »
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.

If you want an example of someone doing RVAF for the long-term, then Iguana , who is still following the forum, is the person to check. Given that RVAF diets really got majorly (re-)started with Aajonus' books in the late 1990s, almost all other RVAFers are much newer.

Palaeophil was an enthusiastic poster, but, to be frank, like Nicola and a few others, he was not a genuine RVAFer. He was a dietary orthorexic,a neurotic, someone who is always looking for the "perfect diet" and who is never satisfied with whatever diet he is trying out - so that he, like Nicola, would regularly  invent negative symptoms in order to justify moving to some other dietary paradigm. He was actually quite a clever character, and wrote some interesting stuff.

There is something quite normal about members disappearing. It has nothing to do with changing diets. A lot of it has to do with changing online circumstances, such as Internet forums dying out due to the smartphone/facebook etc.But the real reason is that most people get tired of defining themselves by their diet. Most turned to RVAF diets out of purely selfish reasons, they wanted to get healthy. Once their health was achieved, and all their questions were answered, there would have been little point in obsessing further about diet, and they could then move on to other things, while still sticking to a RVAF diet. In other words, from being a "RVAFer", they become just some guy/gal who happens to eat raw meat.That's just normal. The long-termers who stay here usually have other  motives. I, for example, had a miserable number of decades of ill-health, with people blaming me for being lazy(i had chronic fatigue at the time)etc. etc., and my reasons for staying on this forum are mainly to help avoid others from experiencing the awful  pain and misery I had to suffer for so long - and, also, over the years, I have found that many knowledgeable RVAFers on this forum, however short- or long-term, had discovered things on their own which helped either to improve my road to health-recovery or expanded my knowledge in other areas.

GS, how do you create that exclamation mark on a yellow background? Just curious...

You've missed an important point in the previous post and then in the last post, you point out the obvious, that, on a general level, those who are having the most children are also the stupidest, while the most intelligent are also having the least children. This has been going on since the Neolithic era, which is why human average brain-size/average intelligence has been steadily declining since. One only has to look at all the great scientists/philosophers - almost all of them ended up childless.

As regards welfare, plenty of very intelligent people have exploited the system very well. After all, it is rather stupid to pay taxes which then go to support and enable others to have children on welfare. The links I provided proved the point. Sure, a few like the above get caught, but most do not because they are careful enough to stay within the law. Take 3 successful examples I know of:-

1 Afghan couple with 9 children emigrated to Vienna as so-called "refugees". They managed to collect 8,200 euros a month in benefits, some of which went for IVF so that they could have 2 more children. An Austrian couple anonymously talked to newspapers online and stated that, as long as they only worked part-time, they got all the benefits they wanted, plus if they had worked full-time, they would have had to pay so much extra tax, they would have ended up with less money in the end.

I also have heard of 1 British guy who started out with a council flat provided by the State. He then used the fact that the London boroughs never communicate with each other, being jealous of each other, toapply under aliases to 28 different boroughs, so that he managed to get 28 council flats in all, all in his name. Needless to say, what with enormous, rising house prices and rents in London, he was able to sub-let these 28  council flats for huge rents for several decades, and still hasn't been convicted, afaik.

But this is all irrelevant, and nothing to do with the current thread, which is about ALL mankind becoming less intelligent, this time involving the environmental influence, as opposed to the genetic drop in IQs.

Like goodsamaritan says, there is little that can be derived from this study because it doesn't mention if it corrected for parental IQ.

That is, while I'm the first to conclude that everybody's health is getting worse every decade, being objective here, there's no way to ascertain whether everybody's IQ is lowering, or whether the various disgenic policies are simply causing lower IQ people to have more children than they used to, and higher IQ people to have less than they used to.
Wrong. The study is showing that the current generations are not using their brains, so they are effectively less intelligent than they could be. Epigenetics would be a major factor therein. Anyway, dysgenics is a modern fact....

If you can`t eat suet, what do you eat for fat? Bone marrow?
I used to when in the UK. Now, it's mainly tongue which i 50-60% raw fat.

Err, I'm just 45... I do have some food-intolerances to a few raw foods, even now( too much raw liver and any raw veggie juice over 1 litre  gets me going to the toilet soon after as my body refuses to absorb it. Too many raw eggs gives me yellow diarrhea in a similiar fashion, any suet gives me yellow diarrhea as well, raw coconut oil gives me very nasty stomach-aches lasting hours. That's about it so far, except that my food-intolerance towards cooked foods has, thankfully, increased steadily over the years to the point where  if I do occasionally eat cooked foods, I usually have to vomit them out some time afterwards unless they are consumed in very small quantities.

guys is eating 2-3-4 eggs a day healthy for my heart while bodybuilding? thanks in advance
Everyone is different. Some bodybuilders of yore such as Armand Tanny consumed dozens of raw eggs a day. I, on the other hand, find raw eggs to be only easily digested in small amounts. More than 3 a day, and then only once or twice a week at most, is  OK, but any more and I start getting yellow diarrhea of sorts as my body does not seem to digest them that well then. I think I likely get a small reaction to the grains consumed by the relevant chickens. Anyway, unlike with other less natural diets, every RVAFer is different and has to constantly experiment in the early years to see what works best for them alone.

Interesting idea. I used to add a few small mods to various PC games, some of which are still around after 15 years.

This thread does have something to do with the palaeolithic theme, incidentally. We are increasingly  automating everything. For example, instead of using natural light, we are becoming more and more myopic with each new generation due to staying indoors. Mercola suggests that all children should play outside for several hours a day while the eyes are still forming/growing to stop this  from happening. Public and private transport now stops us from simple walking/running. Automating the food-industry has directly led to even higher levels of food-processing than before, and greater levels of obesity.Personally, with future generations not needing to use their brains due to automation, I suspect there will, as a result, be an epigenetically-induced drop in real intelligence as well.

Not saying that technology is always a  disaster, though.It just has to be properly applied, that's all. For example, my current red light man device is really boosting my abilities in numerous respects. Sunning myself would not bring as much benefit, and, unfortunately, I tend to get sunburned  if I overdo it.

Automation is also deadly in other ways. Owners of businesses are using automation as an excuse to forcibly lower employees' salaries, and, worst of all, since now most jobs are automated, this has allowed people to get jobs who, in earlier times, would not have been deemed remotely intelligent enough to properly  do the work involved. Take Nick Leeson of Baring's fame.

General Discussion / Re: Parasites Worms in our intestines
« on: June 13, 2018, 09:55:57 am »

I dont eat cooked now because raw digests better for me snd I feel less digestive effort.. sleep better.

Just recently started getting scared of those worms that can manifest..

I would love to see more posts proving they are harmless and have nothing to do with raw meat bro

In the end, all we can do is rely on our own experiences. There are some Hulda-Clarke-inspired types who erroneously believe that parasites are everywhere, but these usually do not stick to a RVAF diet.

If that were really true, then there would be a sign of an extinction event but nothing like the Permian etc. has ever been found for c. 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.Or at least a sign of a mass dislocation of former species etc.

Anyway, the point is that most people are filled with human hubris and believe that humans are there for a reason, and so that, if there is no God, they think there must be intelligent aliens or some such who created mankind.There are much simpler explanations, such as the notion that we are just a bunch of evolved apes on a dirtball 3rd rock from the sun, with any alien species within any possible communication-range being  long extinct.

No one is trying to force you to do anything. Obviously, since you have this wholly irrational phobia you should avoid eating a RVAF diet until you have read enough about the issue and talked off-line to various RVAFers.

This is hardly surprising. There is so much automation that few, if any, humans now actually need to use their brains. They can simply use an online calculator instead of working out sums in their heads. Formerly complicated jobs like being an accountant or a pilot can now mostly be done by software of various kinds.

There are also concentrated curcumin tablets which apparently help against cancer. You have to do some research to find out the right ones. I trust the mercola-approved one, myself.
