Tai, Yes, I think a good diet can help a lot. It's related to osteoporosis, you have seen how some older people get hunchbacked--it's because they have lost a lot of bone. They are eating horribly and not exercising, etc. I work with a guy who is 65 and he has a severe case. But he looks like he does not care at all about taking care of himself. If you do those things right, you will probab

My former next door neighbors were a very proper, late 80s older woman from high society Boston and her middle-aged daughter who looked geriatric. It was very clear that the mother had almost complete control over the daughter. The daughter appeared to be mentally challenged, with lethargic, limited movements and somewhat impaired speech as if it took great effort to speak. Yet she drove, she

if you mean the sensation of a quantum leap in alertness, energy, joy, everything running smoothly, better strength/endurance, less sleep needed, skin, no false appetite,etc, etc then there's no doubt.

Tai, Luigi did a study showing lowest health-care costs when the BMI is 18. But for a relatively heathy person who is eating a super diet, I would not worry about being 2 units above that. 20 is better than 16.

Yes. EWG put up a site showing the impact of different food choices in terms of equivalent miles driven by car for 4 oz servings. Of course meats and cheeses were the worst. I hoped that the costs per calorie would be more revealing, but distressingly, produce turns out to be pretty expensive. Since it is mostly water by weight, it has a big impact compared to milk, beans, grains, nuts, or see

Legumes: the most important dietary predictor of survival in older people of different ethnicities. It's not that they have nutrients that other foods lack. It's that are an alternative to fruit and fat. And truthfully I do not think they are magic, probably the best thing about them is that they are "not meat." >either 2 weeks wasn't long enough or foods eaten were not idea

Just a couple of weeks. There is no "on/off" switch for me, only percentages. If I believed that such a thing--maximum benefits only available at 100% in an overtly way-- were possible I would do it. Testimonials can be inspiring but the credibility lies with studies which do not currently exist.

I do not feel that I need a colonic after legumes. They are so great! I use modest quantities. 10-15% usually. They are still plants, they are cheap, and they offer up a lot of nutrition. But yes, they need to be cooked. I totally respect that many people herr wish to avoid them. But I see no reason to avoid them for myself. They provide a compromise between too much fruit a

Hot off the presses March 2015. BACKGROUND: Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) is a widely used sensitive cytogenetic biomarker of exposure to genotoxic and cancerogenic agents. Results of human monitoring studies and cytogenetic damage have revealed that biological effects of genotoxic exposures are influenced by confounding factors related to life-style. Anyway, the protective effects were

Tai, The only way you know for sure is if you hire a third party to test it. Some viruses can get their mojo back after 1 month of extreme conditions. Others are still active over long-term conditions. A lot has to do with whether or not it can protect itself with a silica coating. I do not know the specifics of this particular virus, though. But since it does not sound like

24 or so refs showing raw f+v protective for stomach cancer are below, just up until 2007 or so when I stopped looking for them.

Yes, I think there is some correlation. But I think you can still enjoy your fermented foods if a. you have them only occasionally and b. the bulk of your calories are from fresh, unprocessed foods. I doubt those Asian people who got cancers were doing high raw with the rest of their calories.

Tai, it's an interesting question because viruses are technically not alive. They are just protein sheaths with DNA or RNA. I don't think that dehydrating without heat is enough to denature their proteins or otherwise destroy their integrity. There is a living creature called the tardigrade with a brain, a GI tract, legs, etc. that can withstand all kinds of ridiculously torturous environments. S

Tai, I don't believe our body's ability to produce enzymes declines significantly due to our food choices. It's just another thing that declines in general as we get older. There is no evidence that people who are long term tube feeders have more digestive enzymes for example. I think fermented foods are great. I'd do 1/2 cup a day or so. I can't say what is optimal. I drink tap water. I

It's a good question and the amounts per kg of either the oil or the fruit are similar: 200-400 mg/kg. A good way to estimate the phenolic content is bitterness-- bitter=more phenolics. But now consider the calorie costs 1 kg olives vs 1 kg olive oil. olives: 1450 kcal olive oil: 8840 kcal Olives deliver approx. 6x more phenolics per calorie than olive oil.

It's the phenolics, not the oil. Nuts are healthier than olive oil, olives are healthier than olive oil.

I am afraid of those for two reasons, 1. they reputedly taste awful, and 2. they are too expensive. The castelvetranos are reported to taste exactly like a very fine EVOO. Probably because of the lye.

he looks more like his age here. Face is suspiciously smooth compared to neck. Eyes look a little cloudy. I can see that he has some loss of bony mass at the eye sockets and chin/jaw. Even so, I have to say his vitality impresses me. He does not have that characteristic stiffness that sets compared to most people his age. I am trying to find specifics about his diet.

Does anybody eat these? They are processed, but not with heat. They are soaked in lye to remove the bitterness, then rinsed, then soaked in brine. I am looking for ways to reduce my consumption of olive oil or eliminate it completely. This type of olive, blended, might be a way to accomplish it. It still tastes like olive oil from what people say.
