New Research Shows Poorly Understood “Leaky Gut Syndrome” Is Real, May Be the Cause of Several Diseases

Andrei Soldatov’s beat is Russian spies, which is a hot topic for a new cold war. As editor of, an online “watchdog” of Putin’s clandestine intelligence agencies, he has spent the last decade reporting on and anatomizing the resurrection of the Russian security state, from KGB-style crackdowns on dissent at home to adroit or haphazard assassinations abroad.

Unrefined Plant Food Consumption vs. The Killer Diseases

I insist that our low consumption of unrefined plant foods is largely responsible for our dismal mortality statistics. Most of us perish prematurely as a result of our dietary folly.

Raw-food revolution: beyond carrot sticks. If the thought of a raw-food diet conjures up images of bland greens and handfuls of nuts and seeds, then it may be time to re-imagine the possibilities of raw food.

Raw-food revolution: beyond carrot sticks

"Not many people can envision the raw-food diet; they think of apples or raw meat," said Monika Kinsman, founder and CEO of Thrive, a vegetarian restaurant in Seattle that aims to make raw food accessible. Raw-vegan-food diets are based on the belief that plant food in its natural state contains the most nutrition for human bodies.

"The whole idea of raw food implies giving up flavor, which is the biggest misconception," said Larisa Goldin, who eats meat about twice a week and is a Thrive customer. For Goldin, integrating largely raw meals into her diet, reducing sugar intake and eating less meat contributed to 20 pounds of weight loss. Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid. Raw Food Not Enough to Feed Big Brains.

Eating a raw food diet is a recipe for disaster if you're trying to boost your species' brainpower.

Raw Food Not Enough to Feed Big Brains

That's because humans would have to spend more than 9 hours a day eating to get enough energy from unprocessed raw food alone to support our large brains, according to a new study that calculates the energetic costs of growing a bigger brain or body in primates. But our ancestors managed to get enough energy to grow brains that have three times as many neurons as those in apes such as gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. How did they do it? They got cooking, according to a study published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"If you eat only raw food, there are not enough hours in the day to get enough calories to build such a large brain," says Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a neuroscientist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil who is co-author of the report.

Blue, Brie and Camembert cheese types including a cross between these mold types made from kefir is quite simple. Such cheese can be prepared with Kefir-Leban, as a 100% kefir base explained above, which is pressed, inoculated and incubated to mature the cheese. The mold breaks down the more complex molecules of protein and fats, and impart the characteristic sharp taste to Blue cheese. That taste is due to the fungal metabolites, butyric acid and ammonia.
