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)
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)
Did you learn something that lead to a significant change in your daily routine? Do you think your health will be even better now that you have this new information? Do you trust the results? Do you think the science is too young to be... (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)
I don't see my dad that much but when I did the other day I noticed that his skin is not great, my mum's seems ok but i think she wears foundation. My own skin is not great also, quite a few bumps and spots which don't really bother me too much... (more)
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
Pyroluria-- Is it real? Is it permanent? Those that pay attention to it regard it as genetic, requiring permanent B6 supplementation. Nora Gedgaudas in "Primal Mind Primal Body" has a whole appendix on it and seems to share this view. Any... (more)
EDIT: Other PH posts are slightly different: My post is about my specific results. I took this genetic test because I am at the bottom of the barrel as far as stuff to try for my health issues. So help me with a little speculation on trying to... (more)
A friends status on FB got me thinking about this. Her son was using a toy as a gun. She has no idea how he knows about guns. A few comments suggested that boys just do this kind of thing - it's genetic. My DS is always surprising me and using... (more)
I've always wondered if the different levels in carb tolerance that we often see has anything to do with genetic differences that related to ethnicity. I, for example, am half Italian (mother born there) and half Jewish-Russian (perhaps Belarus;... (more)
Non-Africans Are Part Neanderthal, Genetic Research Shows http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/07/110718085329.htm In light of these findings, is there anything that we can extrapolate about the nutritional needs (such as macronutrient... (more)
Chris and I were having a conversation about how some people do really awesome on pretty low carb and some people feel sick. I started getting curious about whether this might have something to do with "neanderthal ancestry." If you have DNA data... (more)
The show is about how we all started in Africa and migrated north then one group heads west and another group goes east. We lightened up the further north we went to be able to get the most amount of Vit D with shorter days I guess. But then how... (more)
There's also evidence that European light skin and different colors of hair might have a lot to do with sexual selection in addition to issues with vitamin D.
