    The Ray Peat Forum is primarily intended for information sharing, entertainment, and peer support purposes. Information included in threads and posts should not replace necessary medical consultations with a qualified health practitioner or professional to meet your individual health or medical needs, or those of your loved ones.

    Ray Peat Forum is to provide a platform for discussing various methods and techniques of achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

    This forum is to provide an outlet for discussion of general health, fitness & nutrition. It is NOT, under any circumstances, to replace a medically professional exchange of ideas and/or advice.

    The exchange of seemingly logical ideas and advice is 100% welcome so long as dangerous/inaccurate/misleading advice is not given. However, this is not something that can be completely avoided as few/none of us are licensed professionals in the area that we are advising in, but rather enthusiasts who are semi-educated on the matters at hand.

    Posters are encouraged to cite the source of information in case they're copying it from a different website. It can go a long way in providing a chain of authenticity in certain situations.

    Persons posting in this forum should refrain from making medical recommendations of any kind, except in the most general terms. Making such suggestions or recommendations without appropriate training and certification can be dangerous and is illegal in many places.

    The moderators of this forum will do their best to ensure that untoward/harmful advice is not given, but each member is advised to seek professional medical assistance before acting upon any advice given in this forum.


    Content and information placed in the Ray Peat Forum does not necessarily reflect the views of Ray Peat Forum.

    While it is permissible to discuss medically-oriented topics, nothing posted here should in any way be interpreted as authoritative medical advice.

    While the information provided by knowledgeable members is certainly available for the education of forum members, Ray Peat Forum makes no claim of accuracy and does not endorse suggestions or recommendations set forth here.

    For products and services discussed in the forum, Ray Peat Forum or any of its operators or facilitators make any representations with respect to the contents thereof, and specifically disclaim any implied or express warrants of merchantability or fitness for any particular usage, application or purpose.

    Ray Peat Forum does not necessarily verify the information in its forums, and therefore, cannot judge the merits or lack thereof, of any offering, information, suggestions, ideas, opinions or advice.

    *This message is not intended to discourage people from posting, only to encourage those posting to be very careful about providing specific medical advice. We welcome everyone's input and hope that this forum will continue to grow as an open and enjoyable platform for discussing Dr. Ray Peat's Philosophies.
