Re: Best diet for women 4/4’s?

Or just give me some advice on how to proceed with a diet plan that’s probably not going to do harm? To loosely quote Stavia, the best diet for you will be the one that you can follow for the long haul. That said, do look at your lab results to help determine if your food choices are helping or hur...

Re: Advice for GSTM1 Deletion

Should we consider supplementation, and are there biomarkers that we can keep track of? You might want to read Dr Ben Lynch's book Dirty Genes. It covers GST, COMT and MTHFR (among others) and helps define the symptoms that might suggest treating one or another. That said, glutathione, and riboflav...

Re: CRISPR pioneer Zhang targets brain diseases

Nice to see him sharing the tool. Seems they will make faster progress with more folks using it. The Broad’s Zhang says more work will have to be done before RESCUE can be tested in people. Meanwhile, he’s making the tool publicly available through the repository Addgene, so other researchers can us...

Re: Newbie intro - with question

Learning to listen to your body/gut is so important, but trusting the message is the real challenge at first.

Re: Gene mutation evolved to cope with modern high-sugar diets

I wasn't able to find the CLTCL1 variant information in my genetic reports. Snpedia says its rs1061325 and it is available in my 23andme report. I'm a C/T so it (along with who knows what other snps) might help explain some issues I have with a high fat diet. I seem to need more carbs to feel my be...

Re: mthfkr and comt

Any opinions for or against supplements in this situation? Have you tested your B12 or folate levels? How is your intake of B6 and choline? High homocysteine does suggest something is off the rails, so read through the methylation wiki for some clues. There is also a link to Chris Masterjohn's quic...

Helping your hippocampus

Turn off your GPS, and get lost sometimes.

Ditch the GPS. It’s ruining your brain.

Here's the Nature article he references.

Having just moved to a new city, my hippocampus is getting a major workout! :lol:
