Eggs are rich in immune boosting nutrients , egg yolk kills fungus

Eggs have long been recognized as a source of high-quality protein. The World Health Organization (WHO) and other public health authorities actually use eggs as their reference standard for evaluating the protein quality in all other foods. Egg protein is usually referred to as “HBV” protein, meaning protein with High Biological Value. Since eggs are used as the reference standard for food protein, they score 100% on the HBV chart. The high quality of egg protein is based on the mixture of amino acids it contains. (Amino acids are the building blocks for making proteins.) Eggs provide a complete range of amino acids, including branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine), sulfur-containing amino acids (methionine, cysteine), lysine, tryptophan, and all other essential amino acids. Their protein is sometimes referred to as a “complete protein” for this reason.

Egg yolks contain at least seven essential minerals, including:
  • 22 mg calcium.
  • 0.46 mg iron.
  • 1 mg magnesium.
  • 66 mg phosphorus.
  • 19 mg potassium.
  • 8 mg sodium.
  • 0.39 mg zinc.
Boiled Eggs Sulfur Smell: Amino Acids

Most amino acids do not contain sulfur. However, two do contain sulfur in addition to nitrogen—methionine and cysteine.

Kale, cabbage, onions, garlic and broccoli are some of the most nutritious foods on earth.… Make sure your diet includes freshly crushed garlic, onions, broccoli, fish and other foods high in sulfur. … Onions, eggs, cruciferous vegetables and other foods high in sulfur are considered health promoting.

All B vitamins are found in eggs, including vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, choline, biotin, and folic acid. Choline is a standout among these B vitamins. In fact, eggs rank higher in choline than any of our other WHFoods. In the U.S., an average diet provides about 300 milligrams of choline per day – less than the recommended amount for an adult woman (425 milligrams) or an adult man (550 milligrams). Since one egg provides over 100 milligrams of choline and only 75-80 calories, it provides far more choline for far less calories than most other choline-rich foods.

The mineral content of eggs also deserves special mention here–not because eggs are a rich source of most minerals but because they are a rich source of certain minerals that can sometimes be difficult to obtain from other foods. Eggs are a very good source of both selenium and iodine. While many fish, shellfish, and mushrooms can be rich sources of selenium, persons who avoid these foods may sometimes have difficulty getting an adequate amount of this important antioxidant mineral from food. For persons who do not use iodized salt in recipes or at the table and who do not consume either yogurt or cow’s milk, this mineral can also sometimes be challenging to obtain from food.

The nutrients found in an egg are distributed fairly evenly between the yolk and the white. This distribution of nutrients is a common characteristic of whole, natural foods and it is one of the reasons that we recommend consumption of whole eggs (except, of course, when only the yolk or the white is called for in a recipe). The chart below explains what approximate percent of the total nutrient amount is found in the yolk and the white of an egg. You will notice that the first four nutrient groupings are those that are found predominately in the egg white, while those that follow are found predominately in the egg yolk (all except for the last nutrient, selenium, which is divided fairly evenly between the egg white and yolk).

Omega-3 Support

In recent years, there has been a food marketplace trend of greater availability of eggs that are unusually rich in omega-3 fats. These eggs get their high levels of omega-3s through the addition of omega-3 oils to the hen’s feed. Oils added to the hen’s diet as a way of increasing omega-3s include menhaden oil, krill oil, flaxseed oil, and algae oil. The supplementation of the hen’s diet with these oils usually produces as much as 250 milligrams of omega-3s per egg yolk.

What many consumers do not know is that virtually all egg yolks contain omega-3 fats and that by providing hens with a natural, pasture-based diet their omega-3 levels can be naturally increased. Pasture feeding can provide the hen with clover and alfalfa, two examples of legumes that are rich in omega-3s; in fact, pasture feeding can double the amount of omega-3s in an egg yolk. Omega-3s are far too low in the average U.S. diet, and eggs from pasture-raised chickens can provide significant amounts of these anti-inflammatory fats.

Parasites and groin pain

What are parasites?

Parasites are animals or plants which must live on or in another plant or animal to survive (go on living). There are several parasites in the environment and when they get into a person’s body, his/her health can be affected. Some parasites enter the body by way of contaminated food or water and some live on the skin and the hair. Examples of parasites include:

  • stomach and gut worms (threadworm, hookworm)
  • skin mites (scabies)
  • hair and body lice (head lice and crab lice)
  • protozoa (Giardia)

Most of these parasites cannot be seen without the help of a magnifying glass. Like a microscope, this is another kind of special instrument which makes things look bigger than they really are. Some adult worms are big enough to see without the help of a magnifying glass.
It is often easy to see where parasites have been, such as when they cause rashes on the skin.

Protozoa

Protozoa are tiny single-celled animals which can move about on their own. Protozoa are so small they can only be seen with the help of a microscope and only some of them cause disease in humans. An example of one of these is Giardia lamblia.
Fig.  1.10: Giardia, a disease-causing protozoan
Fig. 1.10: Giardia, a disease-causing protozoan.

Worms

Parasitic worms are small animals which can live inside the body. Their eggs are taken into the body, usually by swallowing. The worms then hatch out of the eggs and live in the body. Some types of worm larvae (young worms) can also burrow their way into the body through the skin.
When the worms live in the body they can cause sickness. They may get into the stomach and gut and eat the food before the body has digested it. This means that the body does not get enough nourishment. Sometimes the worms will find their way into other parts of the body, such as the blood or liver. When this happens these parts of the body may not work properly.

Mites and lice

These are small animals which affect the skin and hair of the body. They cause the skin, especially the scalp, to become very itchy.

5.2 Diseases caused by parasites

Common diseases in Indigenous communities which are caused by parasites are described below.

Giardiasis

This is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan Giardia lamblia getting into the small intestine. Giardia is a single celled animal which is so small it can only be seen with the help of a microscope.

This disease can occur anywhere in Australia and is very common in Indigenous communities. The symptoms (signs) of this disease are:

  • very severe or chronic (long-lasting) diarrhoea
  • stomach cramps and pain
  • fatigue (tiredness)
  • weakness
  • weight loss

There is special medicine which can be taken to get rid of Giardia from the body.

Hookworm infection

This is a widespread disease in warm, tropical and sub-tropical places, especially where sewage disposal is inadequate. It is common in the Kimberley and other parts of tropical northern Australia.

Hookworm is a parasitic worm. The adult worm is about 1 cm in length and is about the thickness of a pin.
The worms suck blood from the human host. The disease becomes serious when there are many worms in the intestine sucking blood from the host. When this happens, the host loses too much blood which contains the body’s important nutrients (nourishing food).

This can cause:

  • the body to become anaemic (pale and weak)
  • fever
  • diarrhoea or constipation

In extreme cases hookworm infestation can stop the person from thinking and moving properly. It can also slow down children’s growth.

To get rid of these worms from the body, the person must be treated with special medicine.

Threadworm (or pinworm) infection

This is a disease which can occur in any part of Australia. It is another disease which is caused by a parasitic worm which lives in large numbers in the human intestine.

Threadworm causes anal (bum hole) itching. This can lead to disturbed sleep and can cause people to become grumpy. Excessive scratching can lead to broken skin which may become infected (pus sores).

Threadworms are easily passed from one person to another and frequently whole families or groups become infected.

There is also special medicine to get rid of these worms from the body.

Dwarf tapeworm infection

Dwarf tapeworm is the most common human tapeworm in Australia. It is a parasitic infection of the stomach and intestine.
Infection with this tapeworm can cause:

  • diarrhoea
  • stomach pain
  • weight loss
  • weakness

There is special medicine which will get rid of these worms from the body.

Scabies infection

This is a skin disease caused by a tiny animal which is called a mite. It is usually about 0.3 mm long. The female burrows into the skin to lay her eggs and this irritates the skin and makes it very itchy. As a result, the person scratches the skin a lot.
If the skin breaks as a result of the scratching, germs can enter the break in the skin and cause an infection. When treating the infection it is important to also get rid of the mites or lice; otherwise the irritations will continue and cause more infections.
To get rid of scabies a specially medicated lotion is used.

Pediculosis (head lice infection)

These tiny bloodsucking animals live their whole life on a person’s head. The lice stab an opening through the skin and suck up blood from the host. This causes irritation. The resulting scratching can lead to broken skin which can become infected.
Special shampoos are used to get rid of head lice. The eggs which are stuck to the hair need to be removed with a special fine-toothed comb.

5.3 Methods on how some important parasites are spread

Giardia

Giardia occur in the intestines of humans. When Giardia are inside the body they can move about quite easily, but they often leave the body as tiny egg-like cysts in faeces.

Infection happens when these cysts are taken back into the body of someone who does not have Giardia in their intestines. Once inside the intestine they become mobile (able to move) again and start to reproduce themselves by dividing and redividing.

Giardia cysts can be passed:

  • directly by the faecal/oral route from an infected person to one who is not infected
  • indirectly by taking in the cysts in contaminated water or food when eating or drinking

Hookworm

When hookworms get inside people, they lay their eggs inside the person’s intestines. These eggs get into the soil or water when infected human faeces has been left on the ground or from faulty or broken sewage systems.

Tiny larvae (young worms) will hatch out. If the soil is wet the larvae will develop to a stage where they can infect people. They can survive in wet soil for several weeks and are able to burrow through unbroken skin. This happens when people’s skin comes into contact with water, soil or faeces which is infected with hookworm larvae.

People can become infected with hookworm directly by the ingestion of larvae or by larvae burrowing through the skin.

People in the tropical parts of northern Australia who walk around in contaminated wet places without shoes are very likely to get infected.

Top of Page

Inside the body the larvae travel through the blood stream to the lungs where they are coughed up and then swallowed. They finally reach the intestines where they develop into adult worms. Adult worms are able to attach themselves to the walls of the intestines. They have hooks around the mouth which allow them to do this. They live there and suck blood from the human host.
Fig.  1.14: How hookworm gets into the body and where it lives in the body
Fig. 1.14: How hookworm gets into the body and where it lives in the body.

Threadworm (or pinworm)

These worms look like tiny white threads and live in the intestine. The female worm will travel to the anal opening to lay its eggs on the skin around the anus. It is this activity which causes the itching. The eggs and the worms leave the body in faeces. The eggs hatch when they are taken into the same or another person’s intestine.

The worms or their eggs can be passed from one person to another:

  • directly through the faecal/oral route from an infected person to one who is not infected
  • indirectly through contact with contaminated clothing, bedding or food

Dwarf tapeworm

The dwarf tapeworm occurs in the stomach and intestines of humans. The adult tapeworm lays its eggs in the body. The eggs are passed out of the body in the faeces. If these eggs are ingested by other people indirectly or directly, the eggs will hatch in the intestine. The immature worm goes through two further stages of development before it becomes an adult.

Humans become infected with dwarf tapeworms:

  • directly by touching the mouth with fingers which are contaminated with faeces containing the egg
  • indirectly by ingesting eggs in contaminated food or water, or by swallowing an insect which has ingested eggs which have then hatched into larvae inside the insect

Roundworms

Roundworms are nematodes and are found in northern parts of Australia and in many tropical countries. Strongyloides stercoralis is a roundworm which causes a life threatening disease called Strongyloidiasis.

People can become infected through contact with soil contaminated by faeces containing the parasite.

People can often get sick where hygiene and sanitation are poor. Infection can be detected with a special blood test and people can be cured with special tablets.

Scabies

These small animals are a type of mite. The female burrows into the skin where it lays its eggs. When the mites hatch they climb out onto the surface of the skin and then enter hair follicles. These are the small openings in the skin which hold the hair roots. The young mites grow into adults in the hair follicles. They then climb out and mate and start the process all over again. It is the burrowing activity of the mites which causes the skin irritation associated with scabies.
Fig.  1.15: Scabies' life cycle
Fig. 1.15: Scabies’ life cycle.

Scabies prefer to live in certain places in the body. These are body creases such as the backs of the knee and elbow and in the armpit and groin.
Fig.  1.16: Scabies rash on the body
Fig. 1.16: Scabies rash on the body.

Top of Page

Scabies can be passed from an infected person to an uninfected person by:

  • direct contact; or
  • indirect contact with contaminated clothing or bedding. Infection happens more frequently when people live in overcrowded conditions

 

Head lice

Adult lice live their whole lives in the hair of a person’s head. The lice stab openings in the skin to suck blood. The eggs of the head lice, which are also called nits, are glued to the hairs on the person’s head. The nits are about 1 mm in size and are whitish in colour. They take about a week to hatch.

The lice can be passed:

  • directly from person-to-person, such as when small children play or sleep together; or
  • indirectly through the sharing of infected combs, brushes and hats

While head lice can be killed with special shampoos, the nits are difficult to kill in this way. For this reason, nits must be removed with a special fine toothed comb.

Vitamin A and zinc

Scientists found that vitamin A and zinc supplementation was associated with distinct parasite-specific health outcomes. Vitamin A plus zinc reduces G. lamblia incidence, whereas zinc supplementation increases A. lumbricoides incidence but decreases E. histolytica-associated diarrhea.

Supplementation of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium reduce the risk of infection by invasive diarrheal pathogens.

Supplementation of selenium and copper may help the control of H. contortus.

Step 1 to cancer free: Limit stress that leads to high blood glucose and lipids

Adrenals and liver come to the rescue as blood sugar levels drop.  The endocrine pancreas, liver and adrenal glands work to normalize blood sugar and triglycerides.

Take care of your stress so it will be easier for you to prevent obesity, depression, sugar cravings and nerve pain which may start to happen at around 55 years of age. When we take care of our stress level, we take care of our metabolism , brain , whole body and we then prevent chronic diseases that lead to cancer.

Activities to make you happy

Beach stroll, dancing, watching comedians , laughing , sleeping at nigh, massage , happy and loving friends and relationships , spending time with family and friends , playing with your pets, gardening , singing , praying , deep breathing exercise, meditation

Side effects of chronically elevated cortisol can include:

Anxiety , Autoimmune diseases , Cancer,  Chronic fatigue syndrome , Common Colds , Hormone imbalance , Irritable bowel disease , Thyroid conditions , Weight loss resistance

Needed nutrients

Digestive enzymes, vitamin C (citrus, kiwi, berries, tamarind), vitamin B, L-carnitine, chromium, anti-oxidants, fiber-rich foods (squash, yams, sulfur family of garlic and onions, greens, okra, radish), spearmint, ginger, beets, carrots, all root crops, sprouts, pineapple, papaya , taurine rich foods (breastmilk, sea algae, fish)

How to heal a weak liver

Years of hard work and introduction of other environmental toxins from medications, parasites, bacteria , alcohol , lack of sleep and stress strain our liver and can cause an irreversible damage. Although, our liver can still function even when only 10% of the liver cells are healthy, our heart will be severely affected.

Many whole foods can help heal the liver from bitter greens and sour fruits. Reducing stress, sunshine, adequate sleep and clean water and air will be major factors in living longer.

As a health blogger and a senior home care professional, I am most affected when one of my family members has weak liver cells due to aging and over worked body.

Life Extension has the 4th edition book that helped me weave thru the many alternative ways to heal the liver using supplements and whole foods. The biggest holistic healing way that can impact the health of the liver are loving care from family and friends.

Caregivers play an important role in preparing healthy foods and giving massage. I told her to expose her body in the early morning sun and continue on boiling fresh turmeric and ginger and she is feeling well each day. It takes a little longer for the aging body to heal.

In the bay area, we help seniors live in the comfort of their homes providing home aid assistance and nursing care, in non medical way and more on holistic, ensuring healthy living using healthy soups and massage.

Vitamin B3, Leukemia, aging and cancer

Grass fed beef, bone marrow with veggie soup, peanuts and chicken are some of the food sources of Vitamin B3.  I take Vitamin Bs when I am under stress and these vitamins help me sleep too. Vitamin B3 is a natural product found in our blood. Will sunshine help clean our blood. There are many ways to have a healthy blood: exercise with sunshine, avoidance of alcohol, drugs and environmental toxins (metals,gas), whole foods, sleep, less stress and a positive spirit (calm not full of anxiety).

Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is a pyridinenucleoside form of vitamin B3 that functions as a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD+.

NR was first described in 1944 as a growth factor, termed Factor V, for Haemophilus influenza, a bacterium that lives in and depends on blood. Factor V, purified from blood was shown to exist in three forms: NAD+, NMN and NR. NR was the compound that led to the most rapid growth of this bacterium.[5] Notably, H. influenza cannot grow on nicotinic acidnicotinamidetryptophan or aspartic acid, which were the previously known precursors of NAD+.[6]

In 2000, yeast Sir2 was shown to be an NAD+-dependent protein lysine deacetylase,[7] which led several groups to probe yeast NAD+ metabolism for genes and enzymes that might regulate lifespan. Biosynthesis of NAD+ in yeast was thought to flow exclusively through NAMN (nicotinic acid mononucleotide).[8][9][10][11][12]

When NAD+ synthase (glutamine-hydrolysing) was deleted from yeast cells, NR permitted yeast cells to grow. Thus, these Dartmouth College investigators proceeded to clone yeast and human nicotinamide riboside kinases and demonstrate the conversion of NR to NMN by nicotinamide riboside kinases in vitro and in vivo. They also demonstrated that NR is a natural product, a little-noticed vitamin found in cow’s milk.[13][14]

In the 2010s. dietary supplements containing NR were brought to market by ChromaDex under the brand Niagen, which also originally provided NR to Elysium Health which uses NR as a component of its product, Basis.[15]

Oxygen, Omega 3, flaxseed, Vitamin D and E, cancer

Flaxseed oil contains Vitamin B and omega 3 needed for oxygenation of our cells to prevent cancer. When we take our fish oils and flaxseed oil, we take Vitamin E and D too.  Fat soluble vitamins together and water soluble vitamins combine.

There are many ways to oxygenate our cells in our body. Sleep, exercise, whole foods, quality supplementation, sunshine, and avoidance of toxins and environmental stressors including microwaved food if you can cook or eat raw.

Eggs are complete protein, better served as soft boiled.

As we age, we need more good cholesterol from flaxseed, wild salmon, avocado, walnut and other quality supplementation.

Becca said:

Hi, is Carlson fish oil a good quality to take? It comes in a dark glass jar but it was no refrigerated until I put it in my fridge at home?

 

Artour Rakhimov (mod) said:

Experience is the ultimate criteria. Many students either progress 2-10 times slower or cannot progress without fish oil. Maybe this is because they eat animal proteins or something else…

 

Lukasz said:

Artour, you should look at biochemistry books and see why derivatives are not good for human body. Especially when EFAs are key factor in oxygen transportation into cells through cell membrane.

“Essential fatty acids are found in the structural lipids of the cell, often in the 2 position of the phospholipids, and are concerned with the structural integrity of the mitochondial membrane (respiratory-based enery producing).” [Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry, 26th edition, p. 191]

EFAs consumpion every day (parent Omega-3 and parent Omega-6 in proportion 1:1 to 1:2) increases fluidity in the cell membrance, which means easier oxygen and other biochemical transfer.

“Therefore a high content of unsaturated fatty acid residues in the membrane lipids makes the membrane more fluid.” [Principles of Biomedical Chemistry, 1998, p. 22]

Fish oil can’t get you EFAs, only its derivatives that are not necessary, because human body syntezizes them from “parents” (ALA and LA) in the exact amount that is needed. On the other hand, body cannot make parent Omega-3 and Omega-6 – and therefore, we should get them from food. Its not opinion, its what biochemistry textbooks says.

While Buteyko method helps release the oxygen from hemoglobin, EFAs helps to penetrate oxygen through cell membrane. These are two of the most important things I discovered when it comes to maximum body oxygenation.

 

Artour Rakhimov (mod) said:

Chia seeds, and other plant-based sources, do not contain EPA or DHA.

 

Luke said:

Artour, would you suggest to replace Omega 3-6-9 from fish with other sources of these fats, for example – chia seeds? I eat about 3 teaspoons of organic chia seeds a day in form of smoothies. Would that get me enough Omegas?

kees said:

But david please keep in mind that the whole fish, with the vitamin E and antioxidants and being fresh is still a very very healthy meal. It’s only about the pure oils. Be sure to take a lot of vitamin E to prevent lipid oxidation. Fish is essential for good health, just not its oils.
Please be aware of the fact that fermented cod liver oil probably forms an exception to this, but I’m not totally sure.

 

Anonymous said:

This is a real great and a usefull information

 

DAVID said:

Despite the benefits described widespread across the community on fish oil, there are also CONVINCING claims along the other way. If you read articles by a respected and experienced medical researcher with contraversial views, name:Ray Peat, he will talk about the benefits of Co2 and other things, yet he also claims that polyunsaturated fats(fish oils) are the worst kind for you. This is based on the reality that polyunsatatated fats degrade into super powerful oxidants in little to no time. These oxidants are 20x more powerful than the normal oxidants like protein or glucose oxidants, they are known (i think) as lipid oxidants. Fish oils are especialy supressive of the immune system, and polyunsaturated fats only occur in living organisms naturally when their environment is so cold they use it as a sort of antifreeze, as it wil oxidise at normal tempertures.

Not good, better in glass jars or fresh/frozen.

Artour what’s your understanding on eating canned food? Does the canning process cause any harming results for human consumption. For eg canned sardines?

 

hoodanity said:

Egg yolks are very nutrient dense and provide alot of minerals and fat soluble vitamins. More than any other food. The quality of the protein in egg yolks is also very high. There are almost no toxins in it, because it is ideal food where a baby could grow out if it was fertillized.
The cholesterol in egg yolks is only safe when consumed raw. Because your liver can turn cholesterol into bile easily. There is however a limit to cholesterol. More than 8 yolks in one setting is no good for anybody I believe (when I do this i always get nauseated).

There is one big point in this case. The chickens need to be fed a whole variaty of foods, otherwise the omega ratio is too much to the omega 6 side:
Normal eggs ratio: 1 : 10 -15
Omega 3 eggs: 1 : 1 – 1,6

Always go for animal food that can eat their natural foods!

To DrDawn:
3-4 million years ago australopithicus africanus had a slightly larger brain than a chimpanzee and was fully bipedal, how is this not evidence? then you have homo habilis and homo erectus, slowly increasing in brain size.

if that isn’t evidence then what is

 

DrDawn said:

To Luke:
There is no evidence that man ever had a smaller brain. Some of the myths with respect to this and much more about the unique qualities and characteristics of human life are addressed in “The Truth About Human Origins”. At the time that Man ate only fruits and vegetables (before the Flood), there was also a canopy around the Earth that provided about double the oxygen pressure as compared to the present. The myths of Early Man are largely in the imaginations of pseudo-scientists who tout the complexity of the eye (which collects neuro data for the brain to interpret to produce “sight”), yet in the next breath claim the structure evolved–with what advantages along the way? The system doesn’t produce sight without the integrated function of the parts, so gives no “advantage” to select for such evolution? Microevolution (the variation of genetic expression which, by the way, is influenced by diet through regulatory genes that pseudo-scientists claimed were “junk DNA”–mere “leftovers” from evolutionary changes) does occur, but the assumptions of macroevolution are the result of hyperbole and have actually slowed progress in medical science, as misinformation has been multiplied by voluminous and vociferous arguments that have been not been evidence-based and have led to wrongly-taken forks in the road.

To Artour:
Cholesterol does not “clog” arteries due simply to abundance or in any ratio to abundance. In fact, it has been shown over and over again that, at least among those over 70, the higher the cholesterol, the greater the longevity. Science looks for causation, but our current medical “scientists” mistakenly confuse correlation with causation and make devastatingly wrong conclusions leading to destroyed health. Certain subcategories of cholesterol are used to repair damage in the arterial wall when inflammation is present, such as in the case of inadequate vitamin C and certain amino acids, which are needed to maintain/protect the endothelium/connective tissue of vessels from damage.

Thank you for info. Many interesting things.
One of the problems is that many modern people get more Candida (and more soiling) after eating fruits.
“oxidized cholesterol causes cardiovascular diseases…” Buteyko found that when his patients ate eggs, butter, beef, etc., their cholesterol was normal as soon as their had over 20 s CP 24/7. When they tried to have zero cholesterol diets, they produced cholesterol in the body naturally and clogged their arteries with it provided that they have less than 20 s CP. And the lower the CP, the more the “bad” cholesterol level. Diet has nothing to do with it.

(Part 3 – the logic)

Why did humans become this powerful?

The dinosaurs ruled the world for millions of years, because they were bigger and stronger than any other animal. Humans aren’t strong, nor fast. Our specialty is intelligence.

How did we become the smartest?

Eating vegetable foods only, approximately 5 million years ago, we were not smarter than other primates. Only when we started combining fruits with animal foods, between 3 and 2 million years ago, the size of our brains rapidly increased.

What made the capacity of our brain increase?

The combination of sugars and cholesterol. Simply because sugars are the main source of energy for the brain, and cholesterol is most essential to the brain for construction purposes.

Fruits contain easy-to-digest sugars, raw animal food contains ‘clean’ cholesterol, and they both contain the required fat and protein. Together these foods contain all nutrients you need, and are ideal to increase brain capacity.

Doesn’t cholesterol cause cardiovascular diseases?

10 to 20% of the brain is composed of cholesterol, containing 40 times more cholesterol than muscles, and 7 to 10 times more than the liver, where cholesterol is produced. If cholesterol is not that essential, or even unhealthy, of course the human body would never produce cholesterol.

Children who received mothers milk, are generally smarter than those who were fed with formula milk, partly because mothers milk contains twice as much cholesterol.

However……

When food is heated in whatever way, some of the cholesterol is oxidized. And oxidized cholesterol causes cardiovascular diseases. Of course nobody tells you this, because drugs that decrease our cholesterol level and performing preventive actions generate billions of dollars.

Why aren’t we advised to consume natural foods only?

The entire economy is based on consuming prepared foods. It is very hard to feed entire armies or cities with natural foods only.

If humans were still consuming natural foods only, the world would be very different today.

(Part 2)

free of excess pesticides or anti-nutrients, this mainly leaves oranges (and all variants like mandarins), bananas, and melons (watermelon, honeydew, etc). As you can see all of these have some things in common, they have very tough protective mechanisms, unlike blackberries or grapes, the peel of a banana, orange, or hard shell of a watermelon is much more protective against pesticides absorbing through the outer layer. Bananas have the advantage of truly ripening off the tree, making it a year long staple food. Oranges tend to vary by location in ripeness, but usually there is a variant, like mandarins, that are sweet and ripe. If it doesn’t taste like candy, don’t eat it.

Fruit does tend to be expensive, the best method to counter act this is to add extra sugar to fruit/fruit juice, and to consume many raw egg yolks per day (6-12). This has to be built up slowly, as people who consume mostly cooked food haven’t adapted to dealing with raw food bacteria.

Ok, now that we’ve covered the mechanics of this, we can go on to the logic behind it.

First of all thank you for giving out such good information for free, I’ve barely skimmed the surface of this site and I get the feeling you’ve condensed more information about breathing in an understandable manner than any of the other bits and pieces about breathing scattered on the Internet. I also get the feeling you genuinely care so I’m going to share my niche findings in the science of health here. Before you think I’m completely nuts, you should take into consideration that I have spent countless hours researching on the Internet (which is what I’m best at) anything and everything about alternative (because mainstream is always outdated or wrong) solutions to optimising health, and it’s taken me years to weed out all of the misconceptions, scams, etc. Also keep in mind I found your site and stopped here recognising it as a golden nugget of information after searching pages of about 700 google searches about back pain, so I must be pretty good at it (ha ha!).

In the area of nutrition and diet, I’ve found through years of Internet research (I’m not a doctor, or certified health person in any way) that the most efficient food for humans is ripe fruit and certain fresh animal egg yolks (mainly chicken for cost effectiveness) and certain fish, like wild caught salmon and tilapia.

Fruits contain easy-to-digest sugars, raw animal food contains ‘clean’ cholesterol, and they both contain the required fat and protein. Together these foods contain all nutrients you need, and are ideal to increase brain capacity. The most concentrated raw animal food, without toxins, is fresh raw egg yolks (not the white, and not the yolk sac) from chickens, and frozen wild caught salmon or tilapia (frozen also means you’re safe from rare parasites). The fish is mainly meant for the omega 3’s.

This kind of diet even takes care of our need for water (so you don’t need to drink any plain water unless you sweat or eat dry foods).

There are of course guidelines for the fruit, mainly that it has to be ripe and free of…
