Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

The other thing I like is there's almost no waste with this approach, just the bags the coffee comes in. (I won't buy bulk coffee because of possible mold.) I now use glass mugs so I don't have to worry about heavy metals leaching from ceramic ones, but that's a bit extreme since most major outlets...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

For one-cup coffee making I've turned to a stainless steel filter over my cup and making a pour over. I use the Bonavita water heater, fill it at night, get out of bed in the morning, turn it on (usually always set to 209), hit the 'hold the temperature button', go brush my teeth, and when I return...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

I just looked up the price, yikes, the reservoir better be stainless steel. Yes it is hard to find a coffee maker that meets all the criteria one has. One of my friends who was looking for a 2 cup coffee maker said we have to go back in time and she is correct. The Faberware Percolator model has no...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

I looked up the Bunn My Cafe and there is a reservoir in which the water is heated and there is plastic tubing. Someone on You tube tore it apart to fix a leak. So the question is - is this reservoir stainless steel? I couldn't find the answer. My husband tore apart the Bunn speed brew and the rese...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

Has anyone tested a single-cup drip-style coffee maker? The Bunn My Café has stainless steel parts (according to the use and care booklet). Can one be sure that it's completely aluminum free without testing?

Re: URGENT: Biomarker Study Opportunity for ApoE4.Info Members

Sounds like a fantastic opportunity! Thanks for putting this out there. If available near me, I'm 100% in. Hope everything goes smoothly with the NIH grant.

Re: Serotonergic Psychedelics and Neuroplasticity

My understanding of the biology is that these drugs can induce neurogenesis, in part through an increase in BDNF. This is believed to be one of - maybe the primary - ways that SSRIs work. Different SSRIs raise BDNF to different degrees - in one study Zoloft was superior to other commonly-prescribed...

Serotonergic Psychedelics and Neuroplasticity

I'd be curious to know if anyone has thoughts on the following paper: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.celrep.2018.05.022 Highlights and Summary (copied from paper) ⋅ Serotonergic psychedelics increase neuritogenesis, spinogenesis, and synaptogenesis ⋅ Psychedelics promote plasticity vi...

Re: Methylation: how to know you're on track

You may know this already, but I would want to stress getting sufficient B1, B2, Niacin (or NAD), magnesium and zinc. The way I got a glimpse of my own methylation status was by taking the NutrEval FMV from Genova Diagnostics, which includes your energy metabolism, creatinine (which will reveal met...
