Re: Swank Diet vs Higher Fat Diets

i find that the various diets reflect their proponents' personal past divergence from public health guidelines, including variety and moderation. diets present opposing perspectives because individuals take different routes to ill health (not forgetting genetic susceptibility). i was an ill-informed...

Re: bloodwork monitoring

results are starting to come in now. the main findings are that, predictably, being conservative with dosage doesn't cut it when therapeutic intakes are needed. luckily, we have achieved sufficient cognitive improvement already to take on a certain short term high dose regimen safely, without requir...

Re: COVID nutrition research
