    I don't know why you wouldn't eat the whole thing. ;-)

    After all there are so many things one doesn't eat on Paleo or LCHF diets (bread, buns, fries, cakes, etc., etc.) ...

    Sometimes. Or a cold bath.

    There's a lot of lore around this, since it's a practice going back a long way. I guess one might compare sunbathing, walking barefoot and fasting. There seems to...

    http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-07/uotw-coa072716.php


    An incidental interest is that the editors at Eurekalert gave this a rather popular-newspaper-like headline "Cancer on a...

    Dave

    Friend to me, remarking on a colleague we used to work with, "I saw Dave on Monday and barely recognised him. He looks more like Charles Hawtrey these days."

    Dr. Tom Cowan on vegetables

    I was catching up on podcast listening and fossicking around trying to find new ones I hadn't heard before.

    Anyway, I came across an interview with the always-interesting Dr. Tom Cowan of the...

    By the way, note for those outside the UK. Notice this man is titled "Sir" not "Mr". This means that the Queen has knighted him - on the instructions of the politicians, of course; this will not be...

    The unacceptable waist of capitalism

    This is quite funny. The Sun - a "red top" newspaper over here in the UK has dubbed Sir Philip Green "the unacceptable waist of capitalism".

    Now I'm not against the free market, mostly because I...

    It seems to be an infection and fed by the excessive quantity of carbohydrate (and doubtless specifically refined carbohydrate) in contemporary diets.

    It seems the image of him as an athlete was an early case of public image manipulation. He was certainly tall and doubtless fairly strong, but the obesity and numerous health problems seem to go...

    Religion and Fasting

    I tried to look at the canard that ”all religions have fasting” inasmuch as it seems to me that those that do—I don’t know that all do—don’t insofar as they do have it, or something like (maybe...

    Religious "fasting" isn't always fasting

    People in Ancestral Health routinely state that “all religions have fasting”. Jason Fung has said this; Garry Fettke has said this. I’m not sure I didn't hear Dominic P. D'Agostino say it. Or...

    Yes. Dr. Mercola also says, what I've heard before, that tanning beds tend to emit only UVA (or very little UVB)—because their purpose is to tan, and it's the UVA that does that. He adds that some...

    Hmmm ... re-reading that I see that Apple has changed "were" to "we're". They also changed "rays" to Ray's but I caught that one.

    UVA and UVB and vitamin D

    I'm just reading Dr. Mercola's new book. I'm really enjoying it even though there's little here that's new to me. But it's all put so well and in general almost all his recommendations seem sensible...

  21. Dr. Eades on Ancient Egypt (and what I think he's missing)

    I can't stop long, but I'll try to state what I'm thinking.
