    Nuts and Mortality

    McCoy, I eat 12% fat, 15% protein and the rest is carbs. All nutrients are well over 100% excluding vitamin D and B12. Choline is a bit over 500mg so it is at around rda. I eat no animal food except for 1 cup of low-fat kefir. The rest is whole plant based. Lentils, peas, vegetables, fruits, oats, quinoi, chia, flax, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, soy milk and natto. The seeds and nuts are pretty minimal. 2 tsp of sunflower, 2 walnut halves, 5 almonds, tsp of ground flax/chia. I eat a little of these high fat foods with each meal to insure absorption of fat soluble nutrients. Research I’ve looked at indicates very little fat is required to insure absorption of nutrients.

    Muon g-2 and the standard model

    As Wittgenstein noted its “Not how the world is, but that it is, is the mystery.”
  4. Hmm.....have they figured out how to keep them from slamming on the breaks when leaves swirl on the street?
  5. I agree totally. Got two moderna shots and glad I did
  6. [This is a new thread to discuss the topic of "Extreme" amounts of exercise. The first 15 posts have been moved from the Blood Pressure thread where the discussion started - DP] Dean is that a misprint? 20 miles! And on top of 2 miles of running. I cannot help but quote Kenneth Cooper. I paraphrase: jogging more than 15 miles a week will not improve health.
  7. Good advice and No wonder Sinclair is more well known he wears makeup, dresses much nicer and shaves😉!
  8. While we’re at it look at this absurd title! Oh well everything’s a business sooner or later!
  9. Hmmm....I’ve been thinking about this and I do wonder how masks could supposedly be so effective considering how much they leak. I have several brands that are noish approved and they leak the trough the nose. This is very common. These approved n95 and a powecom k95 have the flexible metal nose strips and they still leak. Consider what the average person is wearing AND it does seem like a big JOKE and is it any wonder the epidemic goes on despite massive mask wearing. https://theconversation.com/is-your-mask-effective-against-covid-19-three-questions-you-should-ask-yourself-153839

    Your assumptions are based on cholesterol, but it appears high fat meals may contribute to stress in the arteries which overa lifetime could be a hazard. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0053474

    Well he does mention that healthy people can eat nuts and avocado in the quote that I posted. So he is not suggesting all people should avoid these foods.

    It’s not fanatic. He’s talking about severe CAD patients and his research and many years of experience directly dealing with it shows that fats interfere with blood flow and those patients are already suffering from seriously reduced blood flow to their hearts

    What changes will you be looking at. Endothelial function after a meal is a key factor long term wrt CAD. Pulse wave velocity testing after two comparison meals would be required. One very low fat and one with higher fat.

    Nuts and Mortality

    Depends on your source, in this case you’d only need 3 more grams epa In 2009, The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published its recommendations for PUFA (203): an omega-3 fatty acid intake of 2 g/day alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and 250 mg/day long-chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) an omega-6 fatty acid intake of 10 g/day linoleic acid (LA).

    This is the case against fats well stated. Even so called healthy fats.
  18. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31547615/ The Predimed study is referred to over and over again in so called scientific articles with claims That low fat diet is inferior to a nut or olive oil based diet Wrt cardiovascular risk. The low fat diet reference is 37% fat and a lot of it is saturated! This is pathetic and we can see from this one simpleton example why science is so often scorned, especially wrt personal habits like wearing a mask etc.
  19. Well your right but consider how prevalent covid is now and that itself exacerbates the number affected and attention it’s getting. Can’t quite grasp your points wrt politicalization???

    Olive oil? Healthy or not?!

    IOW’s it’s like drinking fruit juice rather than eating the whole fruit! Which is another reason obesity is epidemic. IAC I can personally testify to the almost incredidible satiating effect of a low fat whole plant food diet. I eat about 14% fat and the only animal food I eat is organic nonfat yogurt which I love on my whole grain/ legume breakfeast consisting of steel cut oats, quinio, lentils, apples, berries, chia seed, talk about filling and delicious. Bottom line I am never hungry BMI 21.
