  • You Really Are What You Eat

    A study has indicated that the RNA from the foods we eat stays in the body and alters genetic expression. The example given is that the micro RNA from rice, via altering what genes turn on and off, causes the body to raise LDL.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Yes, this is a blow to the "GMO is safe" crowd. Thank goodness science is doing something useful once in awhile.

      Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

      Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

          Thanks. Apart from the broader implications, makes me think I need to reduce my rice consumption to keep the quacks happy

              "You are what you eat"

              Makes sense. I'm mainly red meat and fat with some salt, and that's what I eat too, tho they keep saying it'll KILL ME.

                  The book, "Deep nutrition" follows along with this way of thinking. I'm reading it again now. Basically the animal parts that we eat correspond to our own parts as to benefit. I.e., animal liver helps our livers, etc.

                  Excellent book.
