Just the question as it stands, really. Is anyone out there familiar enough with this academic community to know if the diet has taken on? And when I say anthropologists I mean the scientific kind (physical anthropology, etc.), not the ones who... (more)
Hi, I have recently taken Genova's DetoxiGenomic Profile. Apparently I am absent of the GSTM! Glutathione gene. If glutathione supplementation is useless, what would you recommend I do? Regards, Neil.
We are our genes, but our genes are not our fate. As a paleo community we tend to concern ourselves greatly with our natural heritage, our predispositions and our gene expressions. We are very interested in bringing out the best of what we are and... (more)
Anyone tried it? What is better NAC or gluthaionine? I found this interesting paper which supports supplementation with NAC and couple of other gluthaionine precursors: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17914184 Any APOE 4/4 who actually tried... (more)
Dear all! What do you think about creating the ultimate hacking thread for Apo-??4/??4 gene mutations to discuss practical real-life implications. What worked and what did not for cholesterol numbers and overall well-being in terms of lifestyle,... (more)
For those who got APOE 4/4 result on genetic testing (http://snpedia.com/index.php/APOE). What have you learned during your experimentation with diet, supplementation and with overall lifestyle changes?
Hey all, I need to do a genetics paper, and it's pretty free reign. This is the assignment: The Final Project A term paper is required. The term paper is due when you turn in your final assignment. Please submit the paper as a Microsoft Word... (more)
Is this done through one's doctor, or is there a more accurate genetic testing method that one's doctor might not be aware of? Is there a lab out there that studies this particular genetic condition that also offers testing to the public? I am... (more)
Since there is talk about gaining weight all over paleo hacks, i was wondering when played defensive end in high school when i weighed 240 (im 190 now) i was benching 325 for reps, powercleaning 260 for reps, and deadlifting 450-480 pounds, this... (more)
You know those guys you see who are naturally muscular and barely lifts weights? How do you explain that? I kind of envy them. I have sucky genetics and have to work my ass off for every inch of muscle i gain. Thoughts?
My son (1.5yo) was just diagnosed with a very, very rare genetic disorder (Primary Hyperoxaluria Type III). The specialist who actually described this disease hypothesises that the genetic mutation causes the pathway for the proper breakdown of... (more)
Just to clarify, the title was just a way of posing this as a question. Obviously the NY times just report the news, so I don't hold them responsible for reporting this crap, but it was prescient enough and is trending on a prolific tech news... (more)
Paleo is a wonderful notion - to emphasise the dietary practices that our bodies, due to evolution, are best suited to. This principle seems to work particularly well when compared with diet plans that are extremely unsuited to the expectations... (more)
As far as I can see we have already done that. Recreationists or the rigid thinkers are pretty much shunned as extremists which is as it should be IMO. It seems to me that most involved in the paleo movement are very sensitive to individual needs... (more)
I was talking with some relatives who have stomach problems and one thing I noticed is that a lot of them are on NSAIDs- ibuprofen and aspirin, for example. Over the years I have been on and off the paleo diet, but never gotten back to the point I... (more)
When we observe the diets of primitive tribes currently still in or close to the stone age, we see that they vary quite a bit. For example, the Kitava Island folks eat a lot of carbs (by our "paleo" standards), and the Inuit-like folks in north... (more)
I'm being hopeful... This is a long shot and I'm pretty sure nobody will answer...but is there anyone with NF out there who is on paleo? Do you think that it will help with any of the symptoms? Thanks in advance.
I'll start with my question: Do you agree with Melissa McEwen's critique of Jack Kruse's (mis)use of evolutionary biology? I should note that I am a fan of both McEwen and Kruse. McEwen's blog post is... (more)
You have no idea how hard that post was to write. I mean, it's so hard to read Dr. Kruse's writing and find consistant threads in it. He has references on the bottom of some post, but mostly they do not correspond to things in his posts that I... (more)
I know that strict paleo doesn't include grains, dairy or legumes. However, I think the majority of people here are flexible with what they eat. Butter and cream seem to be sacred gods on this site. I was wondering if I could do some sort of poll... (more)
Hi! Because of constipation, which is now better, my G.I specialist got me to take a blood test to see if I have celiac or not. The results were that I'm a carrier for Celiac disease but it came back negative. My aunt didnt develop properly... (more)
How much do you consider your family history (or gene testing, if you've done it) when making lifestyle decisions? For example, if you find out tomorrow that many of your older relatives had/have a particular cancer, would you begin to make... (more)
I have a question that has been on my mind for a while now, and I am wondering what some other people think of this. So, having been strict Paleo for over a year now, that is my choice, I know that. my Significant other, is a wonderfully... (more)
It may not be a helpful answer, but I'd really recommend trying to look beyond weight as the only measure of health. I'd also be cautious of drawing conclusions about what other people are eating or doing when you don't see them. I'm sure there... (more)
You probably are not looking for grounds upon which to sue 23andme, but... The word "actionable" means "affording grounds for legal action" and "violating principles of justice." I get that you mean something closer to: "Based on one's genome,... (more)
