    Why does Danny Roddy recommend sugar to reduce stress/estrogen?

    I have been looking into The Danny Roddy Weblog - Nutrition For Sex, Hair & Health and his ideas. Most of the information is only available in his 50 dollar PDF. Basically, it looks like he claims sugar reduces stress and helps the liver clear the body of "old" hormones, whatever that means. Any idea what the hell he's talking about? Is there any truth to this madness?

    Can I get a bump? Danny Roddy's blog is confusing as hell. Who knows who this guy's target audience is? His articles are characterized by a terrible writing style, an abundance of "Smart Art," and no layman breakdown. I'm just trying to figure out what he's talking about and if it has any merit.

    I dunno, man. I ate a ton of carrots and I didn't regrow any hair. Like every other health blog, he's probably on to something in some of his posts, but with a fair share of BS mixed in. It wouldn't surprise me if sugar reduces stress; it sure feels nice to eat it in its natural contexts.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    Heroin also reduces stress from what I've read and been told by stress-reduced folks. But I think I'll pass just the same.

    He follows Ray Peat. More info on Paleohacks. Their target audience is not paleo/primal IMO and I think there's probably too much woo mixed in with truths to be of value.

    Boy that's one BAD example of a blog. No wonder Chris Kresser opted to drop Danny from his podcast.

    Another question - this one is about aspirin.

    I've read in Ray's articles that he is a big proponent of taking aspirin daily to reduce chronic inflammation. From my understanding, even taking enteric-coated aspirin can have some pretty nasty effects on the stomach, in the form of ulcers, bleeding, etc... because aspirin signals the stomache to produce less protective mucosa, even when the asprin is not dissolved in the stomach. What's your take on this?

    From: Johns Hopkins: Healthy Living on enteric aspirin: Special Reports

    Aspirin has long been known as an effective painkiller, but it's become as important for preventing stroke and heart attack as it is for preventing pain. Low-dose aspirin therapy helps prevent heart attack and stroke by keeping blood platelets from clumping together and forming dangerous clots. But this wonder drug also can produce gastrointestinal (GI) side effects, including an upset stomach. Long-term use of aspirin can cause GI bleeding and ulcers.
