  1. Dotty, the first thing you need to understand as a diligent nutritional researcher is the difference between correlation and causation. It worries me that after 4 years of research you don't understand the limitations of epidemiology. As someone already pointed out, indigenous people eating their native diet have consumed high levels of saturated fat, particularly the Masai and Inuit, and they did not develop atherosclerosis or heart disease of any kind. I would encourage you to read "Go
  2. This may have more to do with the inhalation of smoke than anything else. "The reduction in ability to destroy fungal organisms was similar to that seen in tobacco smokers." It would be interesting to see a study done on those who only inhale vapors or ingest it in food.
  3. I'm sorry but this is just plain false. If milk has 'no nutritional value' how is it that calves survive to adulthood? Maybe you meant no nutritional value to humans, but this is also false. Any person can read a nutrition label and see that milk is a good source of protein, vitamin D, riboflavin, B12, calcium and phosphorus. To the OP, some people lose their ability to digest lactose as they age and that may be what you're experiencing. To be clear, I am not defending commercial mil
  4. I hope anyone watching this will realize there is a BIG difference between commercial milk and raw, farm-fresh, grass-fed milk. Commercial: pasteurized, homogenized, skimmed, fortified, fed antibiotics, rBST, unnatural diet of corn/soy/animal bi-products Farm fresh: Raw (non-pasteurized/ non-homogenized) whole (non-skimmed) and fed a natural diet of GRASS and nothing else. Most of the studies claiming diseases associated with milk were done using commercial milk products. Humans have consum
  5. They don't 'put crap in milk' they put crap in the cows (steroids, antibiotics, unnatural diet), which ends up in the milk. Then they pasteurize and homogenize it. Raw milk from a pastured cow would be the natural alternative. And what makes you think soymilk, which is processed 10 times more than regular milk, is any healthier for you? How much processing do you think it takes to get 'milk' from a soybean?
  6. You should always avoid vegetable oil. Are you buying fresh cuts of meat from the grocery store and cooking it yourself? Avoiding sugar and gluten? How long have you been at it? If not at least 2 months it's not enough time to tell. And no, you should not go low carb low fat, protein is not a good energy source for the body and very hard on liver and kidneys to eat that ways. If you want to start fainting and having your hair fall out, then give it a try. Google 'kimkins' for further proof.
  7. You can't eat a low fat low carb diet, it isn't healthy. I urge you to read this article by Barry Groves: http://www.second-opinions.co.uk/fat-not-protein.html It states...
  8. Your body is not designed to absorb as much fat and protein as possible. In addition, the paleo diet is essentially a low-fat diet (especially low saturated fat) that limits things like butter, eggs, and fatty meats. Additional long-term considerations that you might want to make on a high red meat, low carb diet: 1) The strong link between red meat intake and cancer. 2) Evidence concerning the negative impact of low carb diets on cognitive behavior (learning, memory, etc). If you

  10. You don't need to eat a huge amount of meat or protein on a paleo diet. Protein should be kept to around 20% of calories. The majority of calories should come from fat. Butter, bacon grease, and heavy cream are some of my staples. Eating nothing but lean steaks all the time will cause stomach upset, because you need that fat to be able to digest the protein and absorb the amino acids. Ketosis is not bad for the body in any way, some of the healthiest native populations (like the masai and inuit)
  11. I developed horrible acne after becoming a vegan, which I am still trying to recover from. I could give you a list of reasons why not to become a vegan, like it causes insulin resistance because it is high carb / high sugar, or it causes vitamin deficiencies because its low in fat and generally requires one to eat a lot of wheat/grains. But I think any intelligent person should research for themselves before they make a major decision like that. I should add that the only way I've been able to
  12. Sorry, but this is not correct. It's true that sometimes their muscle meat was lean, however you are forgetting that 'back in the day' humans ate the entire animal. Muscle, skin, bone and organ tissues which are full of fat and cholesterol (and coincidentally have the most nutrients!) Bone marrow, tongue and brain are very high in fat and were considered the most valuable parts for that reason.
  13. No, insulin is a separate test. You can have high levels of insulin and still maintain normal blood glucose levels.
  14. First of all, no conclusions can be drawn from epidemiological studies. Good science has to come from controlled, double-blind placebo studies. Remember, correlation does not prove causation. Secondly, all good ketogenic diets are high in FAT, not protein. Third, where on earth did you get the idea that prolonged ketogenic diets can kill you? Many people spend their entire lives in ketosis without any ill effects.
