Quote:Hey I’ve been eating less than .1 grams of PUFA (almost everyday with few exceptions) for the last year+ and I developed some wicked eczema over the last 3 months and it’s still problematic despite interventions. What could be going on here? I’m getting a lot of B6 and zinc (ray says zinc and B6 deficiencies are the likely causes of skin issues seen in PUFA depletion experiments. Increased metabolism= increased nutrient requirements and all that). Has anyone gone this low on PUFA for this amount of time? I still think rays arguments on there being no such thing as EFA deficiency (or rather that it’s a good thing) are sound but naturally I’m starting to get a little bit skeptical. I can comprehend rays articles on PUFAs but I am still a layman primarily relying on my own experiments/experience. And this might sound odd but I’m getting a little frustrated with the people who claim that PUFA isn’t essential in any amount (disclaimer: I agree with them) but then proceed to eat 3-4-5 grams of PUFA a day and have never really tested extreme PUFA restriction for themselves for a significant amount of time.

It could be something in the food.

Quote:Milk in a carton is contaminated with plastic due to the fact that they line the insides of the carton with it.

You could be absorbing the plastic. If the container is LDPE, you might be absorbing plastic from the milk. You could get milk from a HDPE container (more stable), or mix milk powder very well with water without plastic.

You could improve your intestinal barrier by supplementing a beneficial fiber (some say inulin is good).

The problem could also be excess sun exposure or vitamin D.

Q: "I was wondering if you had a source for refined, organic sugar i could post? And if not, is refined white sugar, with its glyphosate, a healthier option than unrefined sugar? Thank you ill post this answer if thats ok."

Ray: "I don’t have a source. Have you seen any tests showing the amount in refined sugar? Since it’s ionic, I think most of it must be washed out with the molasses."

Reply: "The only study i know of included this excerpt. Using this data, refined sugar has glyphosate at a concentration of 64.8 ppb (To calculate: processing factor is defined as the ratio of processed/raw concentrations of pesticide, which they multiply by the STMR for final concentration, stmr standing for "supervised trial of mean residue".). I use a lot of refined sugar for a collagen protein mix, hence the concern. In case you're interested, I emailed Stephanie Seneff, because she writes so much about glyphosate and I included her response in the third paragraph.

"Data on processing of sugar cane approximating commercial practices were made available to the Meeting. Although the application rates used on the cane processed to bagasse, molasses, raw and refined sugar were higher than the current GAP in the USA the Meeting decided to use the processing data for cane harvested 28 to 35 days after the last application. Median or best estimates of glyphosate processing factors for bagasse, molasses, raw and refined sugar were: 0.275, 8.25, 0.80 and 0.24 respectively. Using the STMR of 0.27 and high residue of 0.97 for sugar cane and the relevant processing factors, the Meeting estimated a maximum residue level for glyphosate of 10 mg/kg for sugar cane molasses together with a median residue of 2.3 mg/kg for total residues."

Stephanie Seneff: "I have also not been able to confirm whether glyphosate is present in sugar or not. Sugar cane is often sprayed with glyphosate just before harvest, so I would be surprised if it is not present. The Canadian government tested a lot of different foods for glyphosate as a consequence of urging for them to do so by the activist Tony Mitra.  His book, called Toxic Foods of North America, provides a lot of the results from their studies. It's tricky to test glyphosate levels in some foods, particularly foods containing a lot of protein. This is because glyphosate gets embedded into the protein and is not picked up by the assay because it is bound to other molecules." "

"I think it is important to understand that consuming metabolically foods is just one piece of the health/healing puzzle.

I have had a few people contact me that tell me they are consuming tons of dairy, fruit, OJ, salt, liver, etc. and they are not feeling any better--in fact, they think they are feeling worse...

Well, I believe a few things may be happening here...

1. Too many changes-too quickly. Changing the diet dramatically is stressful, even if the changes are more metabolically supportive. I experienced this when I shifted my diet. I went from low carb to high dairy, saturated fat, fruit, orange juice, etc. and by body went haywire for a while. Make small shifts--slowly.

2. You may need to heal the gut first. If your gut is damaged, you may need to work on healing the gut first, before adding in tons of dairy--especially milk.

3. Your body is not adapted to utilizing sugars as energy. If you are coming from a low carb diet, you may have shifted your body into becoming a fat-burner. To be able to utilize sugars better, slowly add in more sugars while decreasing fat intake.

4. You are eating too much or too little. This is why food logging is imperative. When shifting foods try and consume the same amount of calories--initially, and then slowly add more. Log temp and pulse to understand if what you are doing, is working.

5. Give it time. Unlike other "diets", seeing the benefits (especially weight loss) of a more metabolically supportive diet can take time. It took you 10, 20, 30, 40 plus years to get to where you are at-health wise--you are not going to be healed in 30, 60, 90 days.

6. You may need thyroid hormone support. Thyroid hormone, if deficient or is not converting in your liver, will lead to a slower running metabolism and slow results.

7. You may have a fatty or slow functioning liver. An overburdened or fatty liver, will affect thyroid conversion, blood sugar regulation, detoxifying estrogen, and hundreds of other functions. Nourish the liver with B vitamins, Caffeine, sugar, taurine, K2, enough protein, etc.

8. Check your stress bucket. What other stressors (lack of sleep, job, relationship, kids, trauma, poor body function, exercise, etc. could be contributing to you poor health.

Bottom line: Become your own health detective, experiment, record your findings, ask for help if you need it, and be open to shifts and changes..."

No Kate, how about it's simply that when someone consumes "tons of dairy, fruit, OJ, salt, liver, etc. and they are not feeling any better--in fact, they think they are feeling worse..." it's because it doesn't work for them, because it's a ridiculous diet for most people.

Also Kate said that "greens" have PUFA, yea, so do eggs and oysters..Also, why ignore the pro-greens Peat quotes?

Education in top Indian Universities   
CMR Institute of Technology Admission Bangalore institute of technology direct admission

India has traditionally been seen as a country that sends rather than receives international students, but a growing number of students from elsewhere are now choosing to study in India. Indeed, the 2015 Open Doors report from the Institute of International Education found that India is the 12th most popular country for US students abroad.RV college of Engineering direct admission Pes University direct admission

There are twenty universities under national jurisdiction in India and more than 215 state-run universities. In addition, there are more than 16.000 colleges either preparing students for university or offering vocational training.BMS college of engineering Admission ms ramaiah institute of management direct admission

The focus of Indian university education lies on scientific research and engineering. Especially IT subjects are booming as the number of graduates barely supplies the demand of the Indian economy. The most famous institutes are the Indian Institutes of Technology. They are highly accredited worldwide and offer the best education in technological fields in India.Bangalore institute of technology management quota 

If you want to study either technology or also management, you should choose one of the twenty national universities instead of the state-run institutes. Their funding is a lot better and they are connected to major Indian companies.Acharya institute of technology direct admission

Since IT and engineering are highly popular fields of study, places in these subjects are limited. On the other hand, other subjects have trouble acquiring qualified students. If you plan on studying something other than software development and engineering, you are normally free to choose the best Indian university for yourself.

So I tried signing up with my name Edward and it said the name, email, or IP was associated with spammer activity. Not me. 

This is the real Edward from Coffee, Chocolate, and Cigarettes. 

I am not sure if in the past I came across this forum and glazed over it, or am confusing it with Peatarian forum or something else, regardless, I don't hang around in forums for many years now.

But my wife was lurking around on here yesterday (who BTW I met on the RPF, so not all of them are scumbags, well, at least in the early days) after someone had joined my Discord and mentioned they were a member here. 

She told me that there were some nice things said about me. So against my better judgement knowing I might be accused of self-promoting (which honestly, if you feel that way, you need to get over it, because if you aren't self-promoting, then you are undervaluing yourself and your abilities, and you probably should read some Machiavelli because pacifism is not going to withstand authoritarianism on merit and virtue alone), nonetheless, thanks for the kind words. 

You all know I'm on a different spectrum as far as nutrition, but I've always seen those who see the bigger picture outside of personal dietary choices, as allies. 

You will notice that, on my blog I have decided to go a different way as of yesterday (so for some this post might be rather "convenient"), my ideas and content will always be free, what I am doing and charging for are alternative formats, my ideas will always be free in the written form.

What I am asking this community to do, since there seems to be some bitterness and threads going on about banning on RPF, is to separate yourself from it and move on, it is time and long overdue. Instead focus that energy and build this community independently. Also realize that the people who spend the most time on forums are likely the ones that need the most help, discourage this behavior, get together online for group face to face chats, make each other face one another face to face and not hide from each other with aliases and fake names. Half the problem with these forums is that they unintentionally promote isolationism because people spend all of their social energy on here and have none left for real people, and then wonder why they feel uncomfortable in the real world. Yes, good food is important, but it is NOT more important than satisfying the human desire to interact face to face. You can disagree, but I appeal to reason, especially those who have been around for a long time, are you better, a little better? Worse? Are you cured? So then, what is missing? 

Be well and carry on,

BTW, LOL... I see there is a "dinosaurs are cool" posting on here, he was on my Discord for a bit, and left when I created a "men" category and got upset apparently when I didn't add him to it and left, you should have hung around you twit, the intention was troll control and you would have been eventually been added after you demonstrated sanity, see, trolls are concerned with labels, and since at the time I was not charging for access, I had in place different psychological controls to deter trolls and twits from running their mouths without substantiation and those seeking attention like unloved children. And it is a very effective moderation method. 

He banned himself because of his internal instability despite his seemingly healthy optimism and diet. And people who run servers also ban people for the same reasons, poor health. We have a strict no ban policy on my server, instead people ban themselves because psychologically they are inconsistent and on my server we call out people who don't critically think because that is how you learn and develop self confidence so that you don't fall prey to cult like behavior.

I am done with that forum. It is completely ruined by Charlie, the admin. User franko suggested that vitamin A was the reason he reacted badly to fast food, completely ignoring the many issues with eating fast food.

"About a month in, I gave myself a "cheat day" and ate a whole Little Caesar's cheese pizza which has 2729 IUs of VA. The next day I had a relatively significant acne breakout and a spontaneous mouth ulcer (usually I only got these after accidentally biting the inside of my mouth). Not a big deal, but still. "

I responded saying the anecdote linking vitamin A to little cesars pizza was stupid.

I now have a weeks ban for "disrespect." Can we no longer criticise eating fast food? CLEARLY vitamin A isn't the reason someone reacts badly to eating a takeaway pizza...

I was totally blown away by this book. Literally every possible topic is covered that remotely has to do with humans and electricity.

It was also pretty sad; Becker's research could have easily led to human limb regeneration, and solely because of weak jealous officials across various government agencies, his lab was shut down in 1981 and he was forced to retire.

Apparently no one has started up where he left off because I haven't seen much of anything about electricity being the stimulus behind most of the bodies processes. Apparently just like when you tell someone their powered devices are destroying their health, it is easiest for them to ignore you; I guess it has also been easiest to ignore Becker's whole body of research because it simply doesn't fit in with other things we "know."

If you're even remotely interested in science, you will love this book. It is also clear it heavily influenced Ray Peat's thinking.
