    Interesting about chewing food really well helping digestion. Seems to me that would be important. Has Peat ever spoken about that?

    It's a huge concept in Chinese medicine. Eating fast is bad for your spleen, which is part of the "triple burner" system that includes the liver and stomach.

    Rockefeller suffered from alopecia later in life. I suspect it was the stress.

    Is this the next trend to watch out for in 2018? Analysing the diets of anyone that has ever made any money? :smile:

    I've read that he drank a lot of milk and there's rumours (which he denied) that he even had wet nurses for human breast milk.

    Here's a longer quote from the article ReSTART quoted:

    "Special cultured milk" - can we assume that to be a slightly sour, youghurt type milk or perhaps a kefir type creation?
