Re: Intermittent fasting

Lots to consider! All together, it wasn't that simple, was it? Not even for the birds. I have to wonder, if the snake diet is a 22 hour intermittent fast, then what does a 48 hour one correspond to in the wild kingdom? I suppose it's more like a vulture diet. They'll typically eat every two or three...

Re: Veganism Refuted

Speaking of timing, I just tried putting up a hummingbird feeder this winter, to see what would happen (well, I'd read that Anna's hummingbird doesn't migrate in winter)... really? Who knows, the first couple of weeks it was warmer than usual outside, and all I saw were a few fruit flies there (I gu...

Re: Can we make a supplement?

Alternatively, maybe a phytate bound iron which would not have a significant risk of overdose, but could provide a boost in iron to those adapted to it from daily consumption. That's kind of speculative though. That sounds clever. Looking at enriched pasta, the added iron is 10% daily value of iron...

Re: Can we make a supplement?

Iron is the big one; that's the leading component of vitamins that can create a lethal overdose. But studies have shown that vegans are apparently not really more likely to have problems with iron deficiency than anybody else; the less you eat, the more efficiently your gut absorbs it. Generally, i...

Re: Do you eat iodized salt?

However, Hyperkalemia from Dietary Supplements indicates that it is better not to over salt things with a substitute like potassium chloride especially. Or why lite salt (half salt) may be the safer option. • Maybe, then again, both could be safer together. Unless sodium absolutely had to be restri...

Re: Do you eat iodized salt?

Maybe, then again, both could be safer together. Unless sodium absolutely had to be restricted, it may help prevent potassium levels from getting too high. Diets high in potassium have been associated with reducing hypertension and heart failure; however, optimal renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system...

Re: Do you eat iodized salt?

However, Hyperkalemia from Dietary Supplements indicates that it is better not to over salt things with a substitute like potassium chloride especially. The daily intake of potassium in a patient with normally functioning kidneys is recommended around 2000 to 3500 mg per day (50 to 90 mEq)... Though...

Re: Peculiarising the peanut

We report here a case of an adult seeking a late night peanut butter snack who mistook for peanut butter a fluoride containing glass etching compound. The glass etching compound was of a color and consistency similar to peanut butter and was packaged in a similar appearing container. The decedent s...
