Re: Wild Planet Sardines are High in Arsenic (and other omega 3 ponderings)

ConsumerLab now includes some sardines in what is now its tuna, salmon and sardines review. I've switched from Wild Planet sardines to Season Brand sardines. It has a little less DHA, and I'll still be getting some amount of arsenic from it, but less than half that of the other two sardine brands. ...

Thanks for including all that here and explaining about the short half life Susan. It's also good to highlight this issue with arsenic testing and fish consumption.

Re: Wild Planet Sardines are High in Arsenic (and other omega 3 ponderings)

ConsumerLab now includes some sardines in what is now its tuna, salmon and sardines review. Thanks for this. I've sent a bunch of literature to my doc about arsenic in fish, and that doing a blood draw after eating fish would lead to an inaccurate arsenic result. LabCorp says don't eat fish up to 7...

Re: Avoid Air Pollution

With the widespread AQ problems associated with the fires in the western US, I've been digging a little bit into how to best assess AQ at the hyperlocal level. I don't want to take walks when the AQ is 50 or above (moderate using the EPA scale), especially PM2.5. Where I live, the accurate and relia...

Re: Non-Bluetooth Sleep Trackers

I'm considering getting the Dreem 2 on sale for $299, but I'm struggling to find time to research it well (as with everything else ;) ) Thank you for letting us know. That's a huge sale, down from $499!!! I'm going to order today. My research suggests that this is by far the most accurate sleep tra...

Re: Targets for Ketosis using BioSense

I have a doctor's appointment in 2 weeks and I'm hoping to see an improvement from last year's results! My homocysteine was still high last year at 8.1, but down from 12.1 the previous year. My hbA1c was still too high at 5.5, but it was down from 5.7. My doctor expressed a real concern last year f...

Re: Bredesen Trained doctor fees

That's great news, circ. I feel the same at the present moment as I've been able to identify and am continuing to address my biggest drivers. For others, who haven't devoted the past 6-8 years immersed in this, I think Apollo Health has a good product which they're earnestly continuing to refine. T...

Re: Sneak Preview of Dr. Bredesen's new Brain Food Pyramid

Thanks, circular, I'll look into that! Question: how are you addressing electrolyte needs like potassium etc? I find I barely ever need to go out of my way to think about this while in ketosis. I do salt my food a lot more than I used to, and my diet is high in magnesium and potassium (not yet enou...

Re: Sneak Preview of Dr. Bredesen's new Brain Food Pyramid

I also want to follow the plan for good sleep, and I'm finding low carbs = hard to fall asleep at night. My best guess is that you need tryptophan to make serotonin and make yourself sleepy. By cutting carbs, you have cut out a major source of your tryptophan. (Think Thanksgiving dinner - it's not ...
