• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Cancer Is A Metabolic Disease, Diet Is Its Drug

    This is perhaps the most stunning article to date I have seen in mainstream media (MSM). For more than 100 years the story has always been that cancer is a genetic disease due to mutations that turn cells into rampant killing machines. Now, one of the bastions of MSM - the mighty "Atlantic" -...

    Not Low Carb, But Lack Of Choline And Methionine, Cause Keto Success

    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S221287781300063X In this study we examined the role of methionine and choline in mediating the metabolic effects of KD. We have found that choline was more effective than methionine in decreasing the liver steatosis of KD-fed mice. On the other...

    Dietary methionine restriction increases fat oxidation in obese adults with metabolic syndrome.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21346062 OBJECTIVE: In preclinical reports, restriction of dietary methionine intake was shown to enhance metabolic flexibility, improve lipid profiles, and reduce fat deposition. The present report is the outcome of a "proof of concept" study to evaluate the...

    Methionine toxicity in the rat in relation to hepatic accumulation of S-adenosylmethionine: preventi

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8434940 Rats were fed toxic levels of methionine with or without simultaneous dietary supplements of glycine and serine. Feed intake, growth rate, and metabolite concentrations in intestine, plasma, liver, skeletal muscle, and kidneys were monitored. Both...

    Dietary Glycine Supplementation Mimics Lifespan Extension By Dietary Methionine Restriction

    In support of Ray's statements that the benefits of caloric restriction may be due to the absence of specific toxic substances, this study shows that extra dietary glycine mimics lifespan extension by methionine restriction: http://www.fasebj.org/cgi/content/meeti ... acts/528.2 The amount of...

    Methionine Depletion

    Hi all, As you may know from Ray's writings and general research, feeding animals diets with artificially restricted levels of tryptophan, methionine, cysteine, or histidine generally results in increased maximal and average lifespan. Of those amino acids, methionine is particularly hard to...
