Well, I read the paper, and it raises a couple of questions. Two groups of Amazonian Indians are compared Kawymeno Waorani (hunter gatherer, 94% of food is wild, twice as much variety as Kichwa) S.T. Kichwa (sustenance farmers, 32% of food is wild) They provide tables showing essentially no decline in visual function for the Kawymeno all the way to age 70+ while the Kichwa show suce

TSM, Do not be put off by the counterpoint and technicalities. IMHO these are just parlor tricks. He liked to show off. The deeply moving parts are what interest me. There is something about this man's thinking process that melts my bone marrow. I am unable to pinpoint exactly why but I do not attribute it to his mastery of counterpoint. There are many other composers that also melt my b

I believe that calcium balance is in the negative in the course of osteoporosis. I also believe that diet has an effect and that f+v are important. But I also believe that pH is not the entire story. When pregnant women do not take in enough calcium, the growing fetus takes what it requires from the host mother's bones. This process is not solely due to pH or calcium intake, for that m

Ideally, one is active and exercising enough to use all those calories. Our prehistoric ancestors were probably active for 3 or more hours per day. In that context, their kcal goals make sense. But in real modern life people have jobs, kids, take classes, and so on, with no time for all that exercise, so those kcal requirements do not fit everyone. They are set high so that there is minimal

They are active in the mouth during the chewing process in the mouth. They do not play a role in the stomach. Amylase peak activity is at pH 6.7–7.0. The pH of gastric acid is 1.5 to 3.5.

I had to get reading glasses at age 43. I seem to get worse with each passing year. Yet there are hunter gatherers in Ecuador who do not suffer from age-related declines in vision. Anyone else here over 40 and using reading glasses? I noticed that Chris Califano uses glasses. They say the loss of the ability to accomodate is due to stiffening of the crystalline lens. There are changes in

Looks ok to me, but you should link to the doc. Last report I read of theirs stated that healthy men do not benefit from a fat intake over 20-25%. Long time ago so I don't know if anything has changed. Regarding conversion rates, they will be as good as possible when the O6:O3 ratio is correct and saturated and trans fat intakes are low. I am not sure that lower conversion to EPA/DHA is a c

Matt, I no longer use topical antioxidants. There is no need if your sunscreen is providing the highest protection from UVA and your diet is good. The people who get the most benefit from topical antioxidants are those whose diets are poorest in them. Aside: you can make your own topical antioxidants for pennies. The prices those companies charge are outrageous.

Calorie restriction is well known to protect against Sarcopenia. I know how I look when I go to the gym regularly vs when I do not. I don't think that not going is healthier. Part of my body goes to jello if I do that. I benefit from taking in extra calories so that I can maintain my bone and muscle mass. Maybe guys can tolerate the "not much exercise" thing better than women becaus

Probably not if your intake and ratio exceed requirements. If you are concerned about this get a blood test. If I meet my requirements I am more concerned with getting the vitamin, mineral, and phytochemical load that my primate ancestors received. I want to be a monkey. Like Andrew Perlot.
