Eat more jellyfish poop


Recommended Posts

About 1:15 minutes into this slightly goofy interview, ( https://youtu.be/GL6dasaA9e0) Dr. Steven Gundry (The Plant Paradox) says:

“We can actually extend our lifespan to things that people can’t even imagine. And it actually has to do not with you and me and what we conceive of as our bodies, but it turns out that 90% of all the cells that make you and me, me, are actually non-human cells. They’re bacteria, viruses, funguses, worms that live in us and on us. 

“And the shocking thing is that 99% of all the genes that make up you and me are non-human genes. They’re bacterial and viral genes. And what we’ve completely missed from the human genome project is that we have actually very few genes. And our genes are about 99% the same as a chimp or a gorilla. And we’re very different from chimps or gorillas. Yet we have virtually the same genes. What makes us different is actually the bacteria and viruses that live inside us. You can actually show when humans evolved from the other great apes, that our bacteria actually changed. We can actually identify that point in time, that the bacteria made us rather than our genes made us.”

A moment later he says:

“As shocking as it may seem most of what happens to us is determined by the state and the variation of the bacteria primarily in our gut. I’ll give you an example. You can take a bowel movement from an obese individual and feed it to a skinny rat. Skinny rats love to eat poo. Those skinny rats will become fat. Because the bacteria have actually manipulated their feeding habits. They actually send text messages to the brain to go look for foods that they would not otherwise consume that those bacteria want. We can actually, there was a cool study in ... a woman marathon runner in England a couple of years ago who developed very severe infection in her colon called c. Difficile... And the modern treatment for this is a fecal transplant, taking poop from somebody else and shoving it up your ass. And you try to get a fecal transplant from a family member because believe it or not family members tend to share their bacteria. I share a lot of bacteria with my dogs and they share with me. So they found a cousin for her and she got the fecal transplant, and everything went well, her c. Difficile went away, we go into why that happened. In the next year, this marathon runner gained 32 pounds without changing anything. And it turns out her niece, cousin, was actually about 32 pounds overweight. And so she was inoculated with obesogenic bacteria. And her bacteria, these little one celled organisms, controlled her behavior...”

So why not drink pond koi poop? Or eat Geoducks? Geoducks live 160 years. We should shove their poop up our bums and obtain their longevity bacteria.

If I surround myself with hundreds of pet Tuataras here in my apartment, if I share their eating patterns, their bacteria, their viruses and worms, will I live as long as the Tuatara? 

I could develop a taste for Lamellibrachia tube worms, their poop and bacteria. 

Some of you here have nice houses and big yards, even orchards and farms: adopt tortoises, and eat their poo.

The oldest known specimens of arctic sponges are 1,550 years old. Sponge soup? Yum. I’ll post a recipe.

Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish might be the only animal in the world to have discovered the fountain of youth. Since it’s capable of cycling from a mature adult stage to an immature polyp stage and back again, there may be no natural limit to its life span. Because they are able to bypass death, the number of individuals is spiking. “We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion (of Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish),”says Dr. Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute.

I have a solution. Eat them. Not only will humanity stop the silent invasion, but we’ll also live forever.
