What has irked me since researching and trying a paleo-type diet is the overwhelming acceptance of pseudoscience by the "paleo" community. I cannot count the number of times I have seen "pH imbalance" listed as a reason for one's health ailments,... (more)

What do you think of Full-body MRI as a 360 degrees prevention measure?

Scratch 0 · February 03, 2013 at 12:53 PM

As a preventative measure for what? Put virtually any human being through a full-body MRI, and every one of them will have spots that look like they might be cancer, but aren't. I think it would be a waste of time and resources.

Freeform L-Lysine is pretty much going to be be 100% the same from every vendor. I've always liked Solgar when I can't decide between brands for various supplements. Also: don't just dose with Lysine -- make sure to keep Arginine low.

Just throw out the first thing that comes to mind, it's pretty silly to look for answers to serious medical questions at "Paleo Hacks," what's next "Hack My Brain Tumor"? People link to photos of their poop for God's sake.
