Eternal youth…life before and after immortality

I can’t remember which book it was (Bully for Brontosaurus??) but prior to about 50,000 years ago, cave-person stuff looked pretty much like primitive chunks of rock with flakes chipped out. Then in a short space of evolutionary time, there was a cave-person super-renaissance, when (by caveperson standards) all sorts of art, crafts, design, and…

The modern ‘S’ word…Stress, exercise and obesity

The evolutionary logic is debatable (evolution relies on selection) but there seems evidence that if a person/animal feels valuable to its herd it lives longer. A sense of being a ‘winner’ seems to epigenetically switch on the repair mechanism. While I’ve seen this earlier in other research on ageing, its worth reflecting on the common…

Less insulin, quicker glucagon, less hunger

So this post tells you exactly how to get rid of big he-man insulin and coax shy glucagon out of the weather house. Long lasting satiety, aka no hunger, depends on glucagon bringing out her picnic basket and scattering the nutrients to the little cells that need them. But she won’t show her face until big…

Micronutrients: Sugars that Heal, or seaweed, bark, fungi

Continuing on Paul Jaminet’s  theme that micronutrient deficiencies trigger hunger, I’d like to explore this little gem hidden in (let’s be generous) mud. I’m saving you some reading here, but the main tediousness is that “Sugars that Heal” (Emil I. Mondo) is serious multi-level marketing hype for a company who’s name ends in -atech and first…

Obesity and hunger: the Insulin-glucagon axis of evil

  So hunger eh. Normalising hunger signals and eliminating body shame. My two keys to the obesity conundrum. Diets don’t work the biggest loser is next years biggest gainer and all that stuff. So here’s a brilliant insight into hunger regulation from Barry Sears (author of the Zone Diet book series, not as gripping as…
