Weekend Link Love – Edition 303

Posted By Mark Sisson On July 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 32 Comments

Episode #26 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [7] is now live, and we’re talking to Dr. Cate Shanahan. As a practicing family physician who moonlights as a metabolic consultant to elite athletes like Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers, Dr. Shanahan has extensive experience working with people from all walks of life with every manner of metabolic dysfunction. She’s seen it all, and now she’s ready to see you – remotely. To learn more about what she’s offering with the new metabolic consulting service, The Primal Advantage [8], give it a listen. If you have any ideas or questions for future podcasts, please let us know by using the blue “Submit a Question” button in the sidebar!

Research of the Week

Tibetans picked up the ability to efficiently use oxygen at high altitudes by reproducing with a now-extinct line of ancient humans [9], the Denisovans.

In a new lifelong feeding study, water fleas (a model organism for toxicological research) fed a diet made up of Roundup-ready soybeans had the lowest growth and fertility rates and died soonest [10]. Those on an organic soy diet fared the best.

Interesting Blog Posts

Don’t toss those strawberry tops [11].

GMO soybean oil bad (for DNA and inflammatory markers), extra virgin olive oil good: Dr. Andro digs into the latest study [12] to confirm what we pretty much already know.

Media, Schmedia

Man, going paleo really hasn’t done much [13] for Tim Howard’s reflexes, agility, reaction time, and overall athleticism.

Oh, wait [14].

The BBC takes a hard look [15] or two [16] at England’s sugar consumption.

Everything Else

How one Canadian veteran is treating his PTSD with standup paddle boarding [17]. I definitely approve.

Who doesn’t love Thai food? Unfortunately, it can be tough to let loose and enjoy yourself at a Thai restaurant when half the time you’re craning your neck to see what kind of oil they’re using in the kitchen and wondering if those rice noodles are really just rice. With Sarah Fragoso’s new Everyday Paleo: Thai Cuisine [18], you can make the food yourself using quality ingredients. No more guesswork, just eating.

Pretty soon, anyone with a smartphone will be able to track their stress levels with a quick, easy, inexpensive cortisol testing app [19]. I can see this doing more harm than good for some folks.

If people were more tolerant of ugly-looking produce, we’d waste far less food [20].

Scientists ran genetic tests on all the samples of “yeti fur” they’d received from around the world and found nothing out of the ordinary [21]. It was all just a bunch of regular animal fur. I’m disappointed, but the abominable snowman lives on, if only in my dreams.

Most people prefer electric shocks [22] to confronting the contents of their own minds.

Comment of the Week

Walter Willett can kiss my entire basckside! I’ve got a stack of mammograms that say he’s DEAD WRONG about red meat and breast cancer.

- That’s gonna tickle [27].
