As commonly insisted upon. Morover, im reading that furosemide exacerbates and causes edema, by wcrivating aldosterone and renin/angiotensin.

I hate furosemide, except possibly for euvolenic hypernatrenia

I foujd that pubmed can specify date in advqnces search, so i always search before 1980

Any opinions on this? Given how much people want to mute other people they dont like or dont agree with we're getting close.

Hello guys, I'm not all that new to Peat's ideas but I am new to discussing them with other Peaters. At any rate, it's no secret that Peat seems to favor a more higher carbohydrate diet. However I've found it very difficult to maintain a high carb diet for a few reasons. Firstly, my food sucks and lacks flavor without fat. Secondly, on a very high carb diet I feel fine in the morning and then crash in the afternoons. Currently I'm eating anywhere between 180-200 grams of carbohydrates a day, mostly from fruit and raw honey. Most of my calories are coming from fat. I eat grassfed butter, coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, and grassfed ruminant fats like beef, lamb, etc. My protein sources are mainly beef, beef liver, eggs (whole eggs), bone broth, gelatin, and oysters.  Not a milk fan, so I take crushed up eggshell powder for calcium. My PUFA intake is rather low, however, I'm not religious about it. I don't go out of my way to consume super low amounts of it. I simply avoid the seed oils, most nuts (I do eat macadamia), and I don't eat pork much (when I do, it's pasture raised pork). I consume avocados and EVOO occasionally.

I dont know if anyone has an answer for this before i ask ray, but does anyone know why the brain accumupates pufa?

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?
