Off Topic Discussions / WFF "buddy" feature?
« on: April 27, 2014, 10:10:24 AM »
Since this forum was founded, I've had a couple of messages from the Notifier, of the form:
{username] wants to be your buddy.

What does buddy imply?

Even the SMF manual entry for it is not terribly helpful.

General Discussion / Wither Life Expectancy
« on: July 04, 2013, 08:29:52 AM »
Brian on WBB raised this question:
"...you brought up a suggested age [40] for our paleo ancestors and this is something I’m constantly confronted with when I preach the wheat belly way."

Actually, I suspect that the whole population statistical number was more like 30 due to infant mortality. I use 40 as the figure for those who survived childhood.

"... I come up with 50 years as a probable lifespan."

That was probably not uncommon, but I doubt it was average for those who otherwise made it to reproductive age.

Modern life expectancy (LE) has reportedly peaked for the current consensus diet (full-time glycemic), at around 75 years.

What effect will primal, paleo, low carb, very low carb or keto diets have on LE?

I doubt we really know, but it's a fascinating question. I'm not doing low-carb grain-free for LE benefit. My guess is that the LE number will rise, but not higher than the longest-living humans get today, but we'll be very healthy until near expiration.

Chatter in the food wank communities is quite varied on this. Blather in the regular news channels is entirely random, and usually confounded by "low carb high protein", failing to control for specific toxins (wheat, fructose) or simply not being that low in carb to begin with. I was amused, on checking the Life Extension Foundation's web site, that they apparently are no longer making specific LE conjectures at all anymore, and they appear to be just selling the trendiest supplements of the moment.

Whatever the new LE number, it's apt to be different for humans conceived and raised LC vs. those of us who came late to the party.

But yes, this LE dissonance between modern paleo diet advocacy and the paleo fossil record is something that needs confronting; for example, the recent discovery of a Neanderthal rib with bone cancer. None of the reports have data on what the tribe's diet was, or the status of this individual. Whatever this Nean was munching, it obviously wasn't protective against cancer.

To spin something I said before, a short paleo life span was likely less due to what they ate than what they didn’t. In addition to malnutrition, they got to die of exposure, injuries, infections, predation and intra- and inter-tribal violence. Apart from tribal violence (now promoted to national scales), these hazards are largely under control today.

For post-paleo humans, cyclical summer carb gorging/deep winter keto probably did have health consequences for the few individuals that managed to survive past 40. Such elders might have been revered by their tribes, and given preferential access to any winter stores of berries, dried fruits and syrups, thus assuring that they wouldn’t be elders much longer.

We moderns get to die of things pre- and post-paleo people were never even aware of – almost all complications of a full-time excessively glycemic metabolism aggravated by two particularly pernicious ingredients: wheat and fructose. Virtually all of the resulting ailments are ramping up out of control at the moment. Only those awakened to the problem have a chance at escaping the trends. For those who jump off the trend lines, the effect on LE remains to be seen.

Introduce Yourself to the Wheat Free Forum / Boundless
« on: April 21, 2013, 03:03:09 PM »
The same person who uses that nym on wheatbellyblog since 2011-10.
http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/about-the-author/comment-page-20/#comment-19973

Topical suggestions for the new forum:
  • Food Elements - one thread per food ingredient
  • FAQ - probably a top sticky with other threads allowed
  • Low-Carb-Friendly Providers - requests/answers for recommendations by locale (managing the warn-offs could be a challenge).

I'm not sure how much time I'll have to spend here vs. wbb.
