Research / The Starch Solution
« on: November 20, 2010, 09:28:36 PM »

The starch solution.  This doctor says you should base you diet off of starch such as wheat and potatoes.  I know this ain't Paleo but I was wondering what people think.

Research / Sugar: The Bitter Truth
« on: April 14, 2010, 07:52:57 PM »  youtube link  uctv link

Basically says frustose corn syrup is a chronic poison.  Eliminate type II.  Gives plug to paleo diet.  Sugars responsible for heath disease.  Another interesting lecture I am watch now.


I found this picture.  What do all the dark spots have in common?  Heat  More Specific? Humidity in Summer.  All that sweet sea and sports drinks are poison.

Research / b17 possibly eliminate cancer
« on: January 26, 2010, 01:44:55 PM »
Note this cancer cure is considered to be a quack by the government.

I have been researching the Federal Reserve and came across this podcast by Edward Griffin he wrote a book Creature from Jekyll Island, basically showing the Federal Reserve is a scam.  The the quality of the interview is great but has little health info.

During the interview he mentioned he wrote another book, "A World without Cancer".  I didn't read the book, but he claims cancer is a B17 vitamin deficiency.  You can find his videos on youtube and google.

Here is site that mentions some info on B17:

But what strikes me is if you eat a Paleo diet with fruit, you will probably be getting a lot of Laetrile (especially if you eat seeds).  Add that to Vitamin D, and you might lower your cancer risk significantly.

Here is a good interview.

Be careful, eating more than one apricot kernel a day might be hazardous.  But, I have been eating the seeds lately.

Here is couple other Paleo forums.

Diet and nutrition / Prickly Pear Fruit or Cactus Pear
« on: July 20, 2009, 08:46:34 PM »
I had 3 of these today.  I have to say they are good eating.  Maybe even better than a real pear, orange or watermelon.  I bought them in a store but they are common and native in 1/3 the United States and ripen from mid-summer to fall (Ontario, Canada has some).  The pads are also edible.  There is a lot of Calcium 9% RDA, in them, but they might have a lot of oxalates at least in the pads.  They also have fiber and vitamin C.  Once I get the cleaned fruit, I didn't bite them too hard and just swallowed the seeds.  It is protected in some areas.  I know there is a big patch in Camarillo, California.

Miscellaneous / The Perfect Health Care System
« on: July 19, 2009, 04:20:56 AM »
Many countries spend 1/3 as much as we do and the people live several years longer on average.  It is illegal for me to test my own blood in California without doctors permission.  I believe to put your hands in the trust of government or even doctors could shorten your life.  I have learned more about health on this board and the internet.  Self-directed health care is the best.

1. First make it illegal for businesses to provide health care insurance.

2. Put $1500 for each person into medical savings account.  Adjust this for inflation based on national debt per person (as all money is debt, and without debt there would be no money).    Total cost $450 billion for 300 million people.

3. In industries that use illegal labor such as farming, construction, or textiles, a tax must be placed on the employers.  In areas where illegals are self employed such as gardeners, increase county property taxes based on estimated costs.  Foreign visitors must pay $1500/365 or $4.10 for each day they spend in the US.  Thus everyone is covered.

Follow the advice of Ron Paul.

Research / Lecture on Fitness/Weight/Longevity

Dr. Robert Baron, UCSF Professor of Medicine, is an expert on obesity and related topics in nutrition and chronic disease. Here he explores ten things you thought you knew. (#16713)

Fitness triumphs low weight for longevity at about minute 27.

I really like this because it shows the slides.

Research / Optimal BMI for longevity
« on: June 26, 2009, 09:12:26 AM »
Data from more than 33,000 American adults show that male life expectancy is greatest for BMIs of about 26 - overweight under the old rule, and equivalent to 24lb extra for the typical man. For women, the new research found an optimum BMI of about 23.5, about half a stone heavier than the standard.

Below is a BMI/Weight Calculator

Thus at 6'2" and M my ideal longevity weight is about 202 lbs.

Research / Man the Hunter Book
« on: June 24, 2009, 06:50:10 PM »

Found this book searching the net.  You can read a few chapters from it.  Most hunter-gathers work less than 2 hours a day.  Also most food is from gathering (usually).  However many times fishing/hunting is most of the food.  Sometimes seems hunting is for show.  Many spend more time gambling/socializing than hunting.  Really enjoyed this book (chap 4).

I love going on fishing trips, probably in my blood.

Vitamins and Supplements / Vitamins and Longevity Pills
« on: June 23, 2009, 12:11:28 PM »
I think Cordain said you can take 2 supplements.

1. Fish Oil - to mainly make up for feed lot beef if you have to eat it.
2. Vitamin D3 - the nation has low D epidemic.
(3.) Multivitamin - maybe taking 1/2 a pill once a week would not hurt.

But I really came to write about longevity pills.  After further reading resveratrol showed no signs to increase lifespan of middle aged mice.

Diet and nutrition / High Fat/Low Carb best chances to supercentarian
« on: June 16, 2009, 05:50:32 PM »
I did a google search of supercentarians (those over 110 years old) and diet.  Based upon the first responses that related diet and their age I got these results.

As reported by the Associated Press September 1, a California man lived to 112 on a junk food diet. George Johnson died August 30, of pneumonia.

Reportedly, the “supercentarian,” who was 5’7” and a lean 140 pounds, gorged heedlessly on high-fat grub. According to Dr. L. Stephen Coles, founder of the Gerontology Research Group at the University of California, Los Angeles:

Coles, who helped with Johnson’s autopsy, spoke enthusiastically of his “clean as a whistle” organs, which more closely resembled those of a spry 50- or 60-year-old than a man born in the nineteenth century.

My first and only thought upon reading this: you lucky bastard. Why am I bothering with tempeh and broccoli? All I can do is swim futilely against my traitorous crappy genes in a race to hold back diabetes, cancer and heart disease, while guys like Johnson wallow in pork fat.


According to the AFP, the oldest man in America, on record, died Monday at the age of 112 years.

Born in New Orleans on June 6, 1896, George Rene Francis smoked cigars until he was 75, ate a diet heavy on milk, cheese, eggs and lard sandwiches and slept six hours a day. He died of congestive heart failure at a nursing home on Saturday.


Rural Sardinia's traditional lifestyle seems to agree with people. Relatively many of its residents are centenarians or even supercentarians (those who live to age 110). Antionio Todde from the village of Tiana about twenty miles (thirty kilometers) southwest of Nuoro made it to three weeks short of age 113. He lived on pasta and soup with some pork or lamb each day and a glass and a half of red wine.


Walter Hamilton Seward, a 47-year resident of West Orange, died  Sept. 14, a month shy of his birthday.  He would have been 112.

Always active, Seward was adhering to his routine of morning calisthenics — still able to lift his knee to his chin while sitting — just before he went into the hospital a week before his death.

“All his life he looked at least 20 years younger than he was,” Jonathan said. “He started going grey when he was about 90.”

Certainly not to his diet, as she said he ate ice cream, cake, loved butter on his mashed potatoes, and had them with “lots of gravy” too.

“He ate veggies but he ate all of the fats and all of the sugars,” she said. “He was a meat and potatoes guy, absolutely.”


Gertrude Baines (born 6 April 1894) is an American supercentenarian who, at age 115 years,  71 days, is the oldest living person in the world.  Aside from her arthritis and inability to walk, Baines is very healthy.  According to, she enjoys "simple pleasures" of eating a diet of bacon and eggs, and watches shows like The Price Is Right and Jerry Springer.


I have to say the Mango must be my Adams Apple.  I had a fresh mango and the fruit was incredible tasting.   My favorite fruit.

But there is a problem. The skin of the fruit contains urushiol, the same chemical found in the other related poisonous plants.   I developed a rash on my lips.

Becareful of the skin.

Recipes and meal photos / jicama

I watched a couple Jicama videos from youtube.

It is supposely a tuber and possibly a root and probably not paleo, however it sure looks like it would help you lose weight.

Anybody use this?
