Re: Lead and Cadmium in Chocolate

If the MADL marks the highest without an observable effect The MADL is set to be one one-thousandth of the exposure level which would have an observable effect. I see it as the absolutely positively no worries threshold. To be sure it's going to harm you, you have to have 1,000 times as much as the...

Re: Moderate alcohol consumption protective against AD

Yes, if only correlation and causation were the same!

The Wiki has an article with additional references on this topic.

Re: New Labs comments welcome

I haven’t read what Marc linked but I’m guessing it addresses A1c variability based on red blood cell life. The first of the two links discusses that topic. Don't miss the link to a BJJ Caveman post that explains how to adjust the HbA1c value for RBC lifespan with a couple of inexpensive blood test...

Re: New Labs comments welcome

The HbA1c test is far from authoritative. We have discussed its limitations here previously; I recommend these topics to you:

Odd A1C/Insulin results
More about HbA1c limitations

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

I haven't seen much in the way of "blind faith". I think the entire spectrum of Gundry opinions here is represented by thoughtful, intelligent people. I'm working on coming to that same conclusion but am not there yet. "Blind faith" is believing in something without any plausibl...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

I think this forum in particular should do better to answer this concern. And I think this forum is doing a wonderful job already by providing an opportunity for all to share their experiences. Dr. Gundy has satisfied patients and non-patient adherents as well as skeptics and naysayers. In my opini...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

So what is it, does this forum support his Diet approach for 4/4's with empirical evidence or is it more blind faith? I don't think a consensus regarding the scope of applicability of Dr. Gundry's protocol exists here. That said, I haven't seen much in the way of "blind faith". I think th...

Re: The Ketogenic Diet: A Neurologist’s Warning

I wonder how connective tissue disorders might influence the results. I think for those individuals the vessels are already supposed to be less stiff due to the weaker connective tissues that line them. Maybe it's something other than the connective tissue, and independent from it, and not influenc...

Re: Lead and Cadmium in Chocolate

The "ND" readings for a few samples are so rare and inconsistent that I do not count on them. When I filter by Endangered Species / 65-95% Cacao and sort by product, I see three entries for Natural Dark 72 and two for ND 88 (my personal staple): ND72 2016: 0.022 ppm, 0.9 ug/serv lead; 0.04...
