recap. cadmium is nearly identical structurally to zinc. so much so that you have to watch out for cd contamination in zn supplements. cadmium ties up your zinc receptors; cadmium toxicity symptoms are a good match for symptoms of zinc depletion. fun fun fun.

Toxicity of cadmium and its health risks from leafy vegetable consumption
http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlel ... ivAbstract
Cadmium (Cd) is a highly toxic heavy metal and has spread widely in the environment in recent decades. This review summarizes current knowledge about Cd contamination of leafy vegetables, its toxicity, exposure, health risks, and approaches to reducing its toxicity in humans. Leafy vegetable consumption has been identified as a dominant exposure pathway of Cd in the human body. An overview of Cd pollution in leafy vegetables as well as the main sources of Cd is given. Notable estimated daily intakes and health risks of Cd exposure through vegetable consumption for humans are revealed in occupational exposure areas and even in some reference areas. Vegetable consumption is one of the most significant sources of exposure to Cd, particularly in occupational exposure regions. Therefore, numerous approaches have been developed to minimize the accumulation of Cd in leafy vegetables, among which the breeding of Cd pollution-safe cultivars is one of the most effective tools. Furthermore, dietary supplements from leafy vegetables perform positive roles in alleviating Cd toxicity in humans with regard to the effects of essential mineral elements, vitamins and phytochemicals taken into the human body via leafy vegetable consumption.

Found this article recently which some may find of interest, an interesting article titled "Do You Really Need to Eat Vegetables to Be Healthy?

i've probably read it lol. as long as you get your essential nutrient needs met somewhere, the answer is not so much afaict. i try to eat local and seasonal so the fruit and veg pickings are on the slim side this time of year. still, i do use frozen spinach like it's a prescription.

i was just wondering what a far north traditional diet would do in the way of fibre and went to the sami first to inquire. interestingly, fibre is noted as one of the main things either lower, or lacking. wonder if inner bark is still in the mix there, that sounds pretty fibre-y.. (next will have to look at a routine north of the tree line tho)

The nutrient density of present-day and traditional diets and their health aspects: the Sami- and lumberjack families living in rural areas of Northern Sweden
http://europepmc.org/abstract/med/10208068
in this one they say fibre differs in that it is not 'well above' recommendations but i can't get full text to see whether fibre intake is 'a little above' 'at' or 'below' recommendations.

Adherence to a traditional lifestyle affects food and nutrient intake among modern swedish sami
http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3 ... 68i4.17371

so fibre does crop up more than once, but i'm not going to spend the time to dig in on how much fibre is 'enough' vs how much they get.
i'll still be eating my steel cut oats in the morning regardless :) oh wait it's the weekend though.. time for eggs :D
