On how long a broth should be cooked:

Ray Peat said:
It's mostly for the attached cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, and most of the gelatin is released in 3 or 4 hours. Excess cooking oxidizes nutrients, especially if there's marrow in the bone.

On whether it would be ok to use chicken carcasses for broth:

Ray Peat said:
In the US, chickens are fed arsenic to make them grow faster, and it concentrates in the bones; you should find out what the chicken feeding practice is in your area.

Great to get some substantiation on this tortured Peat point!
