    PUFA Exacerbate, Saturated Fats (SFA) / Albumin / Calcium Ameliorate COVID-19

    A few months ago I posted about a study discussing the role of lipid peroxidation in the COVID-19 pathology.

    Non-Milk Calcium Sources?

    I'm not a big fan of milk. It gives me excess mucus. However I do love yogurt and cheese. I also eat a lot of eggs every week, and I hear that egg shells are a good source of calcium. Could yogurt, cheese, and eggshells be used as a good source of calcium over milk? Or any other good sources...

    Seems Like The Calcium Intake Of Hunter Gatherers Would Be Low

    According to dental and skeletal remains, hunter gatherers were taller and healthier than early farmers. I'm thinking the most common foods (depending on location) if you were a hunter gatherer would be rabbit, fish, crustaceans, tubers, nuts, berries, leaves (many of which have oxalates)...

    Calcirol - Liquid Vitamin D3

    Just like the other vitamin products we have released, this product does not really need any introduction to anybody familiar with Peat's work.
