It's overly simplistic and ridiculous to say "an excess of Arachidonic Acid in cells and tissues as being the primary causal dietary factor of modern illness". Especially as AA is required by many essential processes in the body, e.g. "Arachidonic... (more)

I'm not sure about alcohol's effects on MCV and uric acid but elevated ALT after heavy drinking is a very plausible explanation. My understanding is that liver enzymes like ALT can stay elevated in your blood several weeks after the event that... (more)

I can't imagine phytates are a problem as long as phytate-rich foods do not make up a large fraction of your diet. And in the context of a paleo diet, there's so much more nutrient density in our diet that some loss due to phytic acid isn't a big... (more)
