Hi, I just got my 23andme results back and need some help understanding what the heck I can do... 1. I have a CBS mutation, which is confusing. On one hand, I have always had joint pain & stiffness, so I'm not surprised that I have a sulfur... (more)

You might want to run these through promethease instead, they (usually) tend to provide better descriptions. You could also just go to snpedia.com, this is where promethease gets its descriptions from. Just search for the red SNPs:... (more)

I bet I'm not the first paleo peep to go hog wild on protein when starting paleo. I developed terrible tension headaches, stiff neck, muscle cramping, lately bad joint pain / muscle pain, and sneezing fits. Of course, there could be lots of... (more)

I'm very confused on: Sulfites vs. Sulfates vs. Sulfur vs. thiols. When I googled low sulfur diet, I came up with this list of foods: http://www.livingnetwork.co.za/chelationnetwork/food/high-sulfur-sulphur-food-list/ However, they are... (more)

I can testify that my rare headaches (perhaps ten in my whole life) were always related to sulfites. Since 2008 I brew my own wine and drink only that. No headache since.

I am delighted to see a post here on methylation!!! I was just diagnosed with MTHFR 1298 (homo: +/+) and am hopeful this might tie everything together for me. During the last 3 years of keeping a food diary, I eventually figured out that I... (more)

Ditto to the above. I used to have dried apricots (the LURIDLY ORANGE ONES!) in my lunch-box at school back in the day and always felt wretched afterwards: this turned out to be a prevailing theme as I grew up; treated dried-fruits = murderous... (more)

So a while back I bought some ground organic beef from Costco "Organic Ranchers" and had it in the freezer until last night. After letting it thaw for a day in the fridge, I opened it up and it smelled of sulfur. I soaked it in water for a few... (more)

I don't really know about sulfurous smells being caused by irradiated beef or how much beef is irradiated in the US. The only way you could answer your question is to contact the supplier and ask them. According to this blog the Organic Ranchers... (more)

Sulfur intolerance is a misnomer. Most with this issue have a problem with foods with a high level of free thiol groups. It also tends to walk hand and hand with Hg toxicity and Selenium deficiency and severe thyroid dysfunction. The thiol... (more)

How bad is this? I love creamed coconut and dried coconut flakes, but sometimes the only ones I can find have sulphur dioxide as an additive (no other additives though). I'm guessing this is not ideal, but does anyone know about... (more)

I'd put that in the "eat it, but seek another source" category. Sulfur dioxide reversibly reacts with certain flavor components (aldehydes) to produce a compound that is less volatile so the flavor of fruits is preserved in drying. When eaten,... (more)

Some dried fruit is Sulfited. Is this safe? Or should I stay away from it? I know some sulfur is naturally occurring, like in asparagus, and we obviously just pass the sulfur, hence the sulfur smelling urine. Is sulfited kiwi ok?

Sulfites used in dried fruit can cause some problems with some people. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fy731 It's not metabolically useful in humans, but it's not problematic either. Inorganic sulfur isn't all that important from a human nutrition POV.... (more)

If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to... (more)
