    Regarding food ratios, posted on the Fans page Sept 26 by Konstantin:

    i also asked him about the Pufa-threshold and thats what he told me: "I used to eat about 50% of calories as saturated fat, but to reduce PUFA, in recent years I have greatly increased my sugar intake, and reduced fat. If the metabolic rate stays high relative to calorie intake, the pufa will be burned quickly, without having an opportunity to shape the physiology very much. Other things become relatively more important as the pufa intake approaches zero---methyl donors, phosphate excess, iron/copper ratio, etc."

    Charlie,
    I thought you might have posted it already. If I put up something you already have, just delete mine... I don't know how you find time to do this forum. :)

    That was a quote from RP in answer to a question from Konstantin Weltersbach.

    Are you sure. To me, it looks like Konstantin is quoting Peat to Lucas.. ? He says, ""Lucas, "I also asked him... "'. The grammar is difficult to follow...

    I think so, maybe we should clarify with Konstantin.

    Completely agree. Many of them are listed with the vaccine patents. I have my damned latext allergy thanks to it being in the Hep B vaccine I was given as an adult.

    In Walmart and Pulix it is not with the bulk of cheeses. Deli area.

    Cultures is ok if its animal rennet. Original PR (milk, salt, rennet) should always be animal source.

    On other cheeses, it's trickier to determine where the rennet comes from.

    Ah too bad. I live in a small town in Canada and it's next to impossible to find any cheeses without bacteria cultures. The only one I've been able to find is this whey cheese imported from Norway - http://www.norseland.ca/en/cheeses/ski-queen. Thoughts?

    Also, what do you guys look for in chocolate? Should I avoid bars with Soya Lecithin?

    Cheers!

    Also, what about cheese with bacterial cultures and animal rennet (no other enzymes)?
