  1. Skipping breakfast might do a dieter good, scientists say Effect of skipping breakfast on subsequent energy intakeThe breakfasts offered in this study were either high carb or high fibre. Bacon eggs (or other low carb high fat option) didn't get a mention, lunch dinner and snacks available wouldn't appeal to anyone used to preparing their own meals using real meats/fish/eggs and low carb veggies. They measured total food intakes on days when breakfast was available and a week later when it wasn't or the other way round.

  11. In order to reduce cholesterol production Statin operate on the mevalonate pathway upstream of the production of Ubiquinones (CoQ10) and 7 dehydrocholesterol (For Vit d production). In the same way that cholesterol and vitamin d are important for every cell in the body so to are ubiquinones (Ubiquitous = found everywhere) When you dam a stream then everything below the dam will be affected..

  16. FREE D Minder phone app. There is a short video here explaining how it works. Vitamin D Minder | David Paul Meyer I haven't used one so no idea how useful it is. I'm not sure if it factors in Urban atmospheric pollution It doesn't take the place of regular 25(OH)D testing. I usually suggest people use the £25 City Assays Vitamin D Blood Spot Test service from one of our NHS path labs. I've now discovered a cheaper source MyVitD personal Vitamin D testing they only charge £24 and also measure calcium levels. I haven't used them yet but will do so and compare their result with a simultaneous test from my usual source. I have asked them if they charge extra for international sales and will post back when I have their answer. PS Editted video link that was wrong. Still not heard back from the new Vit d testing folks about postal charge to Sweden or elsewhere. I've now heard back from the MyVitD test people and they will only post to UK and IRELAND. The system is somewhat different from that used by CityAssays, The Vit d council and Grassrootshealth as this new test requires not just 4 drops of blood on a sample sheet but a little sample pot that you fill with blood so it takes while to get that amount of drops into the tiny collecting pot. I think maybe they are worried about the time factor with long distance postal tests. Anyway I filled in both the new MyVitD minipot and put 4 drops on the CityAssays sample and sent both off today and will report back when the results arise.

  20. Indeed I have the gibberish Google translate version of what you write so have to interpret this as best I can. Any jokes or humour or subtlety is totally lost in the Google translate so I presume that any summary of the evidence I provide in English would also be distorted so I prefer to limit my waffle to the minimum and present only the evidence I'm relying on, in the hope you are sufficiently intelligent to join up the dots. The vitamin D made from UVB exposure of algae is cholecalciferal. Vitamin D3. So you can buy Vegan Cholecalciferal. (at a price) It's why Caribou grazing on lichen have Vitamin D rich meat. Slugs, snails also graze on lichen. Tthese are eaten by wild birds so game birds are also vitamin D rich. That's why the INUIT were able to survive the Winter by fermenting this and other meats in pits underground in seal oil for use in midwinter. They averaged 5000iu / day from their diet.
  21. Most 25(OH)D tests measure both D3 & D2 and it's the TOTAL of D2+ D3 that is reported as your vitammin d level. Most people only have a little D2 and this may be below test accuracy threshold, in which case it isn't included in the total. It D3 Cholecalciferol, that is made in human skin and this is the form that works best in human bodies. D2 speeds up the rate the body disposes of Vitamin D so the more D2 you consume the faster your body catabolises ALL your vitamin D and the more you will need to increase vitamin D intake to keep up. Ergocalciferol from mushrooms or supplements consumed with a standard meal increases 25-hydroxyergocalciferol but decreases 25-hydroxycholecalciferol in the serum of healthy adults. Vitamin D4 in mushroom we don't know much about Vitamin D4 but it's half life is so short in humans it probably isn't significant. Vitamin D2 Is Much Less Effective than Vitamin D3 in Humans s. Meta-analysis of RCTs compares efficacy of D2 vs D3 supplementation
  22. Campbell-Westman Debate On 3-27-13 Atkins vs. China Study diet. Who won? You decide.
  23. Before you all dismiss the idea, bear in mind current medical/nutrition advice is to INCREASE vegetable/fruit intake to 7~9 cup sized portions daily. What effect does that have on acid balance? Reduce salt intake to 5 g daily from average 9 grams daily, the result of that is to reduce chronic low level acidosis high salt intake creates. It is hypocritical to suggest to people on the one hand they need to increase consumption of above ground vegetables while reducing high salt intakes and avoiding overconsumption of coke/colas while on the other hand not recognising the impact of these recommendations are compatible with the theory that excess consumption of acidifying foods without counterbalancing with potassium/magnesium rich vegetables leads to kidney damage. The high salt intake worsens metabolic acidosis in patients with renal insufficiency. Salt is detrimental to the kidneys either by increased systemic and intraglomerular blood pressures or by pressure independent mechanisms of the tissue injury, which are mediated by a higher sodium concentration. We know the effects of regular coke drinking on bone health. It's absolutely true in the short term the kidneys sort out the problem but doing this every day over an extended period causes damage. Activation of intrarenal renin-angiotensin system during metabolic acidosis. The world pandemic of Vitamin D deficit could possibly be explained by cellular inflammatory response activity induced by the renin angiotensin system. The shortage of magnesium is modern foods is part of the problem as low magnesium intake affects potassium absorption and both magnesium and potassium counterbalance the action of high salt intake and other acidifying foods. In addition to conventional factors contributing to acidosis, diet might influence acid-base homeostasis in RTRs. Higher intake of fruits and vegetables and lower animal protein intake is associated with less acidosis in RTRs.
