A prominent Dutch social psychologist who once claimed to have shown that the very act of thinking about eating meat makes people behave more selfishly has been found to have faked data throughout much of his career.

Miscellaneous / The health benefits of gargling with coconut oil
« on: April 28, 2013, 08:56:49 PM »
Since coconut oil is semi-solid below 75F (24C) you have to let it melt in your mouth.

Diet and nutrition / Neanderthin now on Amazon Kindle
« on: April 22, 2013, 08:45:27 PM »
Some forum members have inquired about the availability of Neanderthin over the past few years.  It has been out of print for a decade. Used copies cost too much.

Neanderthin is now available on Amazon Kindle.

This way of eating, like virtually any way of eating, can be made much more, or mush less expensive.

Research / Red meat halves risk of depression
« on: March 21, 2012, 09:27:54 AM »
Last week we learned that red meat was going to kill you. But while waiting for it to kill you at least you won't be depressed if you are a woman.

Red meat halves risk of depression

Women who reduce lamb and beef in their diets are more likely to suffer depression, according to the new study.

Harvard Medical School in Ethics Quandary.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/03/business/03medschool.html

BOSTON — In a first-year pharmacology class at Harvard Medical School, Matt Zerden grew wary as the professor promoted the benefits of cholesterol drugs and seemed to belittle a student who asked about side effects.

Mr. Zerden later discovered something by searching online that he began sharing with his classmates. The professor was not only a full-time member of the Harvard Medical faculty, but a paid consultant to 10 drug companies, including five makers of cholesterol treatments.

“I felt really violated,” Mr. Zerden, now a fourth-year student, recently recalled. “Here we have 160 open minds trying to learn the basics in a protected space, and the information he was giving wasn’t as pure as I think it should be.”

This was not a paleo issue. However, it demonstrates how far the USDA is going to for force you to feed your kids according to their guidelines. 

From the Carolina Journal Online:

A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines.

The guidelines say: lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

The girl’s mother — who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation — said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a “healthy lunch” would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

In case you did not know… This blog and I are being investigated by the NC Board of Dietitians due to egads!!! …

I tell people to eat like I do!!!!  …without a license!!  Horrors!!!

Here’s my story if you don’t know it… I’m just a formerly obese, formerly insulin and drug dependent Type 2 Diabetic… who has normal blood sugar… and I’m drug and insulin FREE

Note 1: Every single person that ‘eats like me’ or similarly improves health markers… every single one.

The point? … no one is ‘hurt’ by following my food recipes nor the meal plan I follow.

 

Note 2: Here is a link to the NC Law I am violating, “GUIDELINE A_6“. I still, to this day have not read it… maybe I will some day. :)

Note 3:  If you look on the emblem you see that the board was formed in 1992.  Since they were formed, obesity and diabetes has skyrocketed in the state, the nation and the world.  But yeah… don’t let me hurt someone …..

Meta / I am thinking of changing my forum name.
« on: January 16, 2012, 04:02:55 PM »
My avatar photo doesn't display anymore. I was going to fix that but I bored with Paleo Dude name.  I am part Celtic too but I'm NOT going to be Celtic Caveman to avoid people thinking I am with CCG. Maybe I  should look to my other side of the family and be Sicilian Caveman.  I don't know yet.

Miscellaneous / Cialis?
« on: January 14, 2012, 11:17:07 PM »
Every night I see a TV commercial for Cialis. Probably not needed by people on paleo. A couple of things I need clarification.

1. Why are they always sitting in separate bathtubs outdoors?

2. The part at the end where they say 'seek medical attention for an erectiion lasting more than 4 hours.' Is that for you or your wife?
