Quote from Graycat....what's up with the very ripe bananas, and cooked and peeled apples? I must have missed something, why eat them like this?

                I think they lay eggs. They are the platypus of the fruit world.

                • I found an interesting study out of Korea for you guys.

                  "The subjects in the highest quintile of the 'dairy and fruit' pattern showed a decreased risk of osteoporosis of the lumbar spine (53 %) compared with those in the lowest quintile, after adjusting for covariates... In contrast, the 'white rice, kimchi and seaweed' dietary pattern was negatively associated with bone health..."

                  Which is hilarious to anyone whose ever read anything on bone health and diet or anything out of Korea.

                    • I think I should probably be cautious with dried fruits. Bought a pack of dates (600g) on friday night, and it's gone now (sunday noon). They're extremely easy to overeat.

                        Well, there is no reason to be that militant in regards to raw apples (I'm not), it's really not a big deal, however I'm just dropping this here:

                        "I think underripe apples are always dangerous. Any organic apple is
                        likely to be o.k., but usually it's safer to convert them to
                        applesauce (cooked), making them more digestible. Storage or stress
                        can affect the apple's allergenicity, and incomplete ripening leaves a
                        variety of toxins. Malonic acid, even at a very low concentration, can
                        cause severe bowel inflammation.

                        Most people can eat an occasional random apple without getting
                        symptoms such as constipation, hemorrhoids, headache, sniffles,
                        sneezing, gas, joint pain, restless sleep, etc., so in moderation the
                        toxins don't matter too much. But when there's a symptom, the fruits
                        with ripening problems should be high on the list of suspects.
                        R.P
                        Re. bananas: as they ripe the starch content decreases in favor of sugar. Sugar > starch. Of course, shelf ripened is not prefect, but well, nothing is

                          Interesting, thanks Derp.

                          I was taking supplemental selenium for a while, but then read some conflicting things about supplementation vs whole foods. I eat eggs daily (at least 2) and I was doing the brazil nut thing. I haven't gone back to eating more red meat yet, but heading there. Supplement form is better in this case?

                          I could split up my Armour tablet for now, currently taking the 30mg in one go; but would the thyroid supplements suggested from iHerb suffice, or is this something I have to go through my doctor to get? For Cynoplus, looks to be prescription unless I want to go through that Mexican drugstore site, hah.

                              I think some people use vit E for skin conditions (acne), and see more efficient results using it topically.
                              Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                                Different absorption rates, and more concentrated on the area you apply vs all over vit e (ingested).

                                I am not speaking from peat's advice though... Just what I know from biotech/pharma background.
