I'm sorry to tell you this but my own experience was that raw lungs were a tasteless, wholly cartilaginous, difficult-to-chew-mess, taking ages to gulp down in the end. I had such difficulty with them and never detected any positive(or negative) effect from them that I  stopped eating them  c. 12 years ago. Same goes for raw testicles from large mammals. Maybe I might have been able to easily eat them if they had been aged for a long time, who knows?

Science / Wood burning major cause of air-pollution

It seems that cooking via using wood is indeed a major problem re air-pollution...

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Best water source?
« on: November 18, 2018, 04:37:27 am »
Distilled is very dangerous. I once did an experiment drinking only distilled water. I found I was thirsty even after gulping down litres of the stuff. The stuff leaches away minerals etc. RO water sounds gimmicky and also removes beneficial minerals to some extent. I drink tapwater wherever I go as, in Austria, most places get lovely pristine water from the Alps. Italy, where I also travel to, has excellent mountain-stream water coming from the Ligurian hills. In London, however, I always drank spring water. I did not want to drink water that has already been through 8 bladders, after all.

Science / Re: Bacteria in gut same as in brain....

Does not compute.... Why did the average brain-size of HG tribes decrease as well in tandem with those of settled peoples since the Neolithic era, if the good-food-bacteria/theory was correct?   One would have expected HGs to be less affected since their diets were better/fattier etc., and less processed/cooked overall. Hmm, the mass dysgenics hypothesis re decrease in average brain-size since the Neolithic era seems also debunked since HG tribes would have been more prone to natural selection that settled counterparts. Then again, Inuit have pretty large skulls(as do Mongolian tribespeople?) etc.? We need more data. Whatever the case, while bacteria have been shown to be very versatile, imo, good food seems to only promote better health, not necessarily enhanced evolution. For example, the meat to brain diet theory re increased brain size seems debunked by the fact that increased hominid brain size occurred before the point where meat-eating increased significantly.

General Discussion / Re: Aversion to cooking

Same here. Most long-termers seem to. By the time I started going rawpalaeo, I had developed very painful stomach-aches after eating any cooked animal foods, so I was discouraged from eating cooked animal foods 99% of the time for the first few years. I still occasionally ate a cooked omelette or whatever on rare occasions to see how my body responded. After a time, the painful stomach-aches subsided though I still felt indigestion to some extent from cooked animal foods. After c.5 years, I gradually started noticing that if I did ever eat any cooked animal foods, that I would vomit it all up if I ate large amounts. I also resorted to eating rice(ie  as in sushi) if I was expected to eat cooked foods as it seemed "less worse" than other cooked foods. After c.5 years, I noticed that I would get a hangover-like effect the next morning after eating cooked foods as my body needed to detox the resulting poisons afterwards. These days(16-17? years on), I am generally careful to include some raw animal food either before or during consuming anything processed as that avoids the detox.

Rather sad, really, but a reflection of modern times. We are all being influenced to do things that are bad for us all the time.

Hmm, a very interesting theory. Makes me want to eat high meat every single day from now on....

Science / New gadget may remove air-pollution risk in homes

This is good news for RVAFers, as short of setting up home in a largely air-pollution-free region, there was, up till now, no way to reduce air-pollution exposure.

Technically, the above claim is absurd, as most palaeolithic-era art has long been destroyed. I am certain that even homo erectus and homo habilis,the neanderthals etc. all  created their own figurative art.

Off Topic / Re: The continuing war on food
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:06:04 pm »
Hmm, the trouble is that there is some evidence to show that some non-processed meats are harmful. That is, raw grainfed meat has been shown to contain AGEs/advanced glycation end products in quite large amounts. Inevitably, if an animal is forced to constantly eat raw, unnatural foods that cause constant inflammation, then obviously the resulting meat, however raw, will be harmful, even more so as it gets more and more processed.In other words, we need  to have studies comparing raw meats from healthy animals fed on healthy, natural raw foods, and lightly-cooked foods from animals fed on unnatural diets.

We RVAFers often forget how overly draconian our governments are as regards  dictating what we are allowed to eat. The above is just one more crazy scheme among 1000s of others.
