Re: Rates of ALA conversion to EPA/DHA

This is why non-heme iron (plant-based) might actually be superior to heme iron (animal sourced) while most critics opine that non-heme is inferior. This is very interesting, where did you hear about this? I have read it in Dr. McDougall stuff before and Dr. Neal Bernard briefly discussed it on a r...

Re: Rates of ALA conversion to EPA/DHA

Research suggests that the conversion from SCn-3 to LCn-3 adjusts if the persons do not consume dietary source of LCn-3. Yes I think it probably works the way your body treats iron. For an example of a likely similar body process: From what I have read and heard from doctors (Dr. Neal Bernard was d...

Re: The Paleo Diet and such

This is an interesting topic. Here are some points I would like to make: 1) What ever early man's diet was, it does not mean it was optimal. Early man only had to live to 25 or 30 years of age to be successful. He likely had kids at puberty and then his kids would need about a dozen years of adult s...

Feel weird after eating at Subway

I rarely eat at restaurants. Maybe eight or ten times a year, I will eat at a vegetarian restaurant and while it is not exactly healthful, I usually eat grilled tofu sandwich and a sprouted whole wheat bun with freshly prepared french fries, it is closer to whole foods/lightly processed foods than m...

Someone took my soap

I use my own soap at work (hand bottle.) I leave it on the bathroom sink (usually next to a potted fake plant so others do not see it and waste it - I use a very small dab when I use it.) Today, I came out and it was gone. The sink area and commode area are separated by a door. Someone had entered t...

Re: GMO foods to Avoid (check them out)

I would assume that genetically modified foods are less nutritious. Many micro-nutrients are produced in plants as responses to outside attacks (pest attacks, draughts, disease etc.) Those chemicals protect the plants from those adverse conditions. There are studies that show that organically grown ...

Re: The Real McCain

I do not understand why the press is not hitting on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keating_Five With all the current scandals rocking the US economy, isn’t it very relevant that McCain was one of five principals involved in one of the largest scandals twenty years ago? And people claim there is libera...

Maybe T Boone Pickens is for real

I thought he was mainly looking for ways to personally profit from wind and solar etc. but maybe he does care about stuff. He supports animal welfare legislation - see below: From alert today: Normally we limit our alerts to subjects directly affecting animals, but we are making an exception this ti...

Appeasement versus talking to other nations' leaders

Very good video clip. It shows (1) difference in leaders talking to other leaders versus appeasement and (2) that many of the sound bite arguers do not know about what they are talking:

What do you make of this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlGg68fMbhA&NR=1

Is it just a "warped" film or is trying to get people to see from where meat comes by tricking them to watch it?

It seems to be making a point from the reading but it is weird.

Warning: has animal slaughter in it.

I like these quotes from Thomas Edison back in 1910 (Source: Interview in Elbert Hubbard's Little Journeys to the Homes of the Great) - and these words were well before any signs of scarcity were seen. He bases his opinion simply on how wasteful combustion is (note the bold and italics - it is such ...
