Saturated Fat – It’s Healthy – It’s Not Dangerous

SATURATED FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU

Yes, you read that right. Saturated fat is GOOD for you. Now before you dismiss this as pure quackery, here are a couple of qualifications:sat

  • Trans-fat, often associated with saturated fat, is bad for you, quite bad for you in fact.
  • Saturated fat from animals raised in unsanitary conditions (feed lots, for instance), may be loaded with all sorts of undesirable stuff.
  • Saturated fat is a political hot potato for reasons having little to do with health or nutrition.

Who Gets Degenerative Disease?

WHO GETS DEGENERATIVE DISEASE AND WHO IS SPARED?

In the west – Europe and North America – more than 70% die from degenerative disease, yet there are two identifiable groups that are largely free from thesedege.deg

By degenerative disease we mean heart disease, cancer, adult onset diabetes, dementia, and several less common age related diseases.

We know for certain that degenerative disease can be avoided. These groups, and their lifestyles are proof. The two groups are hunter-gatherers and centenarians.

Hairlessness

WHY DON’T WE HAVE HAIR?

We don’t mean why are we going bald. We mean why aren’t we covered with hair, like any respectable mammal. We split with the chimps 7 million year ago, and before that, the gorillas. They have plenty of hair. What happened to ours?Monkey

Because of the lack of hair, we have had to evolve pigment, invent clothing, and a lot of other hassles. Once we lost it, for whatever reason, wouldn’t it have been simpler to simply evolve it back. (Maybe the Europeans are part way there. They are ahead of the Africans and Asians in this category.)

Pocket Doc

 HOUSTON, WE’VE GOT A PROBLEM

An online MD story illustrates the sorry state of primary medical care today. On recode.net, we found fdsfgthis: “A Doc in Your Pocket: Doctor on Demand Gets Smarter” By Katherine Boehret, wherein one can get medical treatment on-line with a ‘real’ doctor. You can even get prescriptions, which is perhaps the main point.

Now this launched a bit of an argument between ‘us’. Who are we? These blogs are authored by Dr. Mike Nichols, a long time MD, and Dr. Charles Davis, a long time PhD and patient.

Antioxidants – Seldom Useful, Often Harmful

ANTIOXIDANTS AND ARROGANCE

Medical science always thinks it knows better that hundreds of million years of evolution. In the human body – heck any living creature’s body – everything has a purpose, has a reason for being tfhadfh

The identification of various ‘demons’ by the high priests of medicine probably goes back to our ancient caveman days. But how is the demon identified? In the past, it could be by decree, the most important shaman deciding what is and what is not important.

Which Chronic Diseases Can be Cured

WHAT CAN BE FIXED WITH QUANTITATIVE MEDICINE?

You are no doubt thinking: Lifestyle changes may be unpleasant. I like my life now, but I do want peak health.  If I make all of the changes you suggest and fix my numbers, is that really going touhgdc modify my health. Will it really increase my longevity and prevent degenerative disease?

The somewhat hand-waving answer is: statistically – it definitely will. Results will vary depending on four things:

Degenerative Disease Overview

WHAT IS DEGENERATIVE DISEASE?

More than 70% of us will die from degenerative disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, adult onset diabetes, and others. This is tragic in of itself, but made even more so by the fact that degendegenerative disease is largely preventable.

Degenerative disease is all caused by chronic cellular stress, and relieving cellular stress will prevent and even reverse it.
