    Extremely rich in minerals is right, and delicious.

    It also supplies manganese, which is hard to get if you don't eat mussels, or a lot of potatoes/grapes.

    He talks about the syrups here:

    @Giraffe Thank you so much for updating the Wiki page with the new advice, it really is a much better format than this forum for finding the advice. Really enjoying reading through the updated list.

    [ moderator edit: reply to this post. ]

    Could maybe explain why Ray Peat seems low in typical masculine energy.

    I am updating the email wiki, and I don't know what to do with the sentence above. Since Peat has changed his opinion on mushrooms in the meantime, I am thinking of (a) adding a comment or (b) deleting this entry. I would prefer (a).

    I remember Peat saying something along the lines, that he lost interest in mushrooms when he read that all of them contain hepatotoxic substances, but that he read years later that those are destroyed by heat. - Unfortunately I do not remember where I got that from. Did he say that in an interview? (I do not have the mushrooms newsletter. )

    Suggestions? Help?

    I agree with you in that we should keep this quote and update it with a newer quote explaining the change. In the newsletter on mushrooms he explains why he used to avoid him and why he has changed his opinion. It has to do with a chemical in the mushrooms (hydrazine I think, which is associated with tumors) that is present in raw mushrooms but broken down by heat.

    Ray and Danny talk about mushrooms in this podcast near the end...

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I have the newsletter and will send you the paragraph

    Thanks for your help @schultz.

    This was the one I was thinking of.

    Very much appreciated.

    I have seen that quote before and remember seeing it written, long before I started doing the audio interview clips, so (he could have said it as well) It was written somewhere, perhaps an email to Peatarian, the user that used to post here? I personally don't think you should delete the entry, but add a note to it, show an evolution of thought.

    Could you make a clip I could link to? It starts at around the 50 minutes mark.

    I am not sure, I will have to ask Danny Roddy if it okay, the interview is already on his Youtube and I wouldn't want to take any traffic away from him. In the mean time I have a couple of clips on mushrooms on the channel where he seems quite positive about them, if you wanted to provide somewhere where he doesn't talk about negatives?

    I don't think those responses are contradictory. From his response it seems like he considers androsterone use when suffering from bad things, and thinks it safer than things like chemo etc. For regular use for people just wanting a boost of metabolism, "more animal research needs to be done to be confident of its safety."

    Yeah that's one way to see it. Another way could be "if it is safe even for delicate cases like those, it should be also safe for normal use".

    Here is something to consider in regards to the high dose pregnenolone. I got a lot of hate mail for "making stuff up" about the high dose pregnenolone. But I did not make it up, it was based on the study below.

    WoW. Sad. Thanks for being you @haidut and working tirelessly to explore, experiment, and expand out the discussion. Some of us appreciate it.

    Cue for @thebigpeatowski or one of you other turps drinkers to let Peat know about your sources? :)
