Diet and nutrition / urea, dementia, high protein, in the news now.
« on: December 12, 2017, 06:13:18 AM »
I'd like to know opinions on what is in the health news yesterday about urea being the cause of dementia and one recommendation to prevent such from happening is eat less protein. In my opinion, there is a different reason that ureas are not eliminated properly, not that it is from too much protein. After all, so many people with dementia were raised on canned goods, grains and breads etc.

So please, give me some opinions of your take on this new news.

I'm confused. You mentioned you were not eating like the average person, i.e.; junk. But that instead you found out you were eating paleo by default. But you got diabetes, went on meds for a year, then off of them and now you don't have diabetes. So what cured you? What caused it?

And I'm having trouble figuring out which Ontario! Canada or one of the many places in the US with such name.

 Anyway, I agree. It would be great to actually meet and be friends with those who are on the same wave length here.

  I am in SW Oregon. Anyone else?

Yes, I've seen both. Great movies to share with someone who loves to laugh on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Hard enough to find someone compatible in other areas such as religion or smoking or drunks let alone diet! Eeeegads, I'll likely be single forever. But then living forever is not such a bad thing.

Hope you aren't in Eugene. LOL!

I take it many in Eugene smoke and get drunk and partake in religion?

That's interesting, thanks.  Do you have a link to the original paper?

Better late than never! ha. I just noticed your post. Yes, here is the link to the info.

The question is to Dr. Mirkin and the answer he gives. It is a little more than halfway down that page.

Research / cholesterol study: not bad after all! FINALLY
« on: June 17, 2011, 06:57:37 AM »
I am not on here much, so perhaps it has already been posted somewhere. But I would appreciate some replies to this post.
Below is a copy/pasted piece from Dr. Mirkin's newsletter. In red I have some pertinent information. Below that, about avoiding red meat...blah blah blah....I don't buy it and the other advice perhaps. But the red lettered part is what I really want to hear back about.

I subscribe to some newsletters and in one I found this:

Dear Dr. Mirkin: Why do cholesterol-lowering statin drugs cause
muscle pain and muscle damage?

We don't know. Only a small percentage of those who take
statin drugs suffer muscle pain and damage, those most likely to
have muscle pain from statins are the ones who exercise. The more
vigorously you exercise, the more likely you are to suffer muscle
pain and damage from statins.
A recent study from Texas A&M shows that among older men who
start a muscle strengthening program, those who have the highest
rise in blood levels of the bad LDL cholesterol are the ones who
gain the most muscle strength and size (Journal of Gerontology.
May 6, 2011). Every cell membrane is made up of millions of
cholesterol molecules. This study implies that the so-called
"bad" LDL cholesterol can be good because it brings cholesterol
to the damaged muscle to hasten healing and promote muscle
growth.

All training for strength involves taking a workout so
intense that it damages the muscles and causes soreness on the
next day. Then you are supposed to take easy workouts for as many
days as it takes for muscles to heal and the soreness to diminish.
When your muscles feel better, you take another hard workout that
damages your muscles again. Statin drugs block the bad LDL cholesterol
and delay healing, so it can take longer for athletes to recover
from their hard days and they are not able to be as competitive
as they would be if they were not taking these drugs.
If you take statins, you should realize that most people
can lower their bad LDL cholesterol without taking drugs. However,
many people are not willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes:
*lose excess weight
*avoid sugared drinks and foods with added sugar
*eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables.
*avoid red meat
*get blood levels of vitamin D3 above 75 nmol/L (30 ng/L)
*check with your doctor and start an exercise program or increase
the intensity of your current exercise. People with blocked
arteries leading to the heart can suffer heart attacks when they
exercise intensely.
