Reducing unnecessary fiber

Been thinking about measurements made in Switch on your Nrf2 signaling pathway where a maximum beneficial dietary intake was 800 grams non-starchy plant foods, whereas my intake was 1,279.5 grams. That led to analysis of top non-starchy fiber constituents:

Informed by It’s the fiber, not the fat findings that dietary soluble fiber had large effects, it seems that I could remove ≈ 450 grams (1 lb.) of celery and summer squash that makes only a 1.6 gram contribution toward soluble fiber.

I’m not concerned about other contributions of celery and summer squash, because I get their nutrients elsewhere anyway. I may add celery seed to my twice-daily AGE-less Chicken Vegetable Soup meal for taste.

I plan to replace this 1.6 g soluble fiber / 450 g total fiber with prebiotic chicory root inulin of ~ 3 g soluble fiber / 10 g total fiber. Will update in two weeks.

Continue sleepwalking, young people

A few months ago I had a series of interactions with a late-twenties person who’d escaped from Manhattan. They were well-off enough to work remotely from anywhere, but they chose to move into their mother’s house.

I tried to see them as an individual. I presented Wake up, young people!! arguments:

“Your future lives are being destroyed by this worldwide political power grab.

Unless you were / are already seriously ill with some other disease, you have had / will have very little chance of becoming a COVID-19 fatality.

Young people have been forced into receiving no benefits to their present lives in order to receive less than nothing in their future lives!

  • People who are herding you couldn’t care less about you.
  • Their control over you has no current or future benefit to you. They’ve demonstrated that your present and future lives mean nothing to them.
  • Sitting around, doing nothing, is interpreted as you consenting to their actions.”

None of these had any obvious penetration to the shields they had. They tried to stereotype me for my efforts.

I presented “taking responsibility for your own one precious life” evidence. They knew I’d been in Milan, Italy, February 22-23, 2020, the weekend during which ten towns were closed south of the city.

They tried to ridicule me for saying that anything I’d done to prepare for an aging life stage – since they’d been in elementary school – had any effect on me not becoming infected. Their behavioral contagion was that strong, as if their survival depended on not hearing anything I had to say.

Take a look at I’m kind of asleep right now while it’s still up on YouTube. The young people I work with aren’t like that, but this phenotype is apparently in the majority.

Does running with the herd feel safe? For now?

Sprouting whole oats

Last week I started sprouting whole oats using Sprouting oatsfirst study as a model.

  • Oat seed variety was Thunder Acres Organic Oats Lot# DEC 07 2022, sized .3 cm x 1.1 cm. That’s a large seed by criteria of large not passing through a 2.65 mm x 8.33 mm sieve.
  • 100 seeds weighed 4.2 grams. There were almost 600 seeds per 25 g batches.
  • Oat sprout batches were processed the same way I do broccoli sprout batches. A new batch started soaking to start germination every 12 hours, then was rinsed three times every 24 hours on a 6 hours – 6 hours – 12 hours cycle. The model also soaked seeds for 12 hours, but watered daily.
  • Temperature was 21°C (70°F) compared with the model’s 25°C. Relative humidity was lower than their 60%, probably between 30% and 50%, because it’s winter outside.

A few sprouts were similar to the model’s radicle length of 6.47 ± 0.22 cm after five days of germinating in darkness:

Didn’t achieve anything close to their 100% germination rate:

Not sure why 78% of seeds didn’t overcome dormancy. Different oat variety? Half the model’s relative humidity? Four degrees cooler temperature? Too frequent watering?

I decided to continue on to 6-day-old oat sprouts. A few sprouts had a growth spurt and started greening:

Just a few, though:

Didn’t generate enough data to confirm significant differences in germination rates between 5 and 6 days, or between a.m. and p.m.

Removing each batch’s sprout hulls was tedious. Now I can cut my fingernails again.

I ran another trial Sprouting hulled oats using oat seeds from a different company and Degree of oat sprouting as a model.

In memory of freedom through February 2020

As I said in Train your immune system every day! my traveling companion and I were likely exposed, yet had no symptoms after two weeks. Take responsibility for your one precious life.

Are humans more enlightened now regarding:

“Inalienable rights; that among which these are life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

than in 1776?

Have you given your silent obedient consent to the worldwide power grab?

Looking to the future, looking to the past


No honorable intentions

Catching up with Martin Armstrong:

“What’s going on here? It seems to be more that government is realizing that they’re in trouble.

Everybody has deficits year after year after year. The social programs are failing. They have no intention of ever paying anything back!

This idea that they’ve going to change the economy…this is an academic utopia. This is never going to work. This is not the way things work.

When you lose your job, your future, your future is very much in flux. The Great Reset is just not going to happen.

Our model is not talking about what people talk about on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Our models focus on what creates that to begin with. The U.S. Army, etc., are focusing on that [FB etc.] to predict what people are going to start throwing bricks at. Our model focuses on the origin, not the end game.”

“Lifting the restrictions means they have a very serious problem.

The majority are just sheep. They wear their masks and surrender all rights today and those of their children into the future. They are incapable of waking up and think the government really cares. They will be the ones with a devastating blow that will come all at once.”

Somebody tell my mother if I die


I’m fine, thank you.

I was making Boring Chicken Vegetable Soup for dinner, staring into the filling garbage, and thought of this song from fifty years ago. Followed by its Vietnam-era moan. Most of that band is dead now, BTW.

And for today’s young people:

Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run your life?

It’s time you started thinking inside your head
That you should stand up and fight
Oh just where will you be when your freedom is dead
Won’t you listen tonight?”

Supporting individuals

This past Saturday evening into night I walked five miles over three hours in Manchester, New Hampshire, with two individuals. Several items of interest, incidental to our enjoyable experiences:

  • My first impression was that it could have been this time last year. People who had spent a long winter and spring indoors were happy to be outdoors.
  • There were small differences from 2019 in that outdoor and indoor tables were widely spaced, and a few customers wore masks. We ate a meal indoors that included good paella, ceviche, and calamari.
  • I didn’t see instances of violence or property crimes.
  • I observed social deviancy in ~1% of the people. A crazy person talked to herself while walking down the sidewalk carrying a plastic garbage bag full of who-knows-what – worldly belongings? One homeless person slept off a binge, another engaged in a binge with a bottle in front of him, while a third walked glassy-eyed, accompanied by counsel.

I didn’t see any people my chronological age outdoors. Okay, it was Saturday night.

I encourage every individual to take responsibility for every aspect of each of our own one precious life.

I strongly object to destroying society among individuals, especially young people’s social and economic lives. Current cover stories promise to destroy a person’s social presence, reputation, residence, economic development – whatever it takes – to conform them to the desired “norm.”

Should we destroy society to ostensibly (“outwardly appearing as such; professed; pretended“) protect people who don’t take responsibility for themselves?

  • For our own non-communicable diseases like Type 2 diabetes, obesity, etc., that make us susceptible to other diseases?
  • For our own neglected health issues that we look to others to resolve instead of looking to ourselves?

Will Part II be governments granting themselves even more powers with a cover story that they will restore the order they destroyed?

The individuals I walked with support open-carry firearms. Instances of property crimes and violence I saw: 0 among ~400 people outdoors. I saw three that supported open carry:

  1. A pub owner or manager;
  2. A person on Manchester’s main street; and
  3. A person shouting from their car.

Instances of property crimes and violence in US cities on Saturday night who prohibit open carry? Look up:

  • Seattle (at least 59 people injured by mob violence);
  • Portland (another day after day, week after week, month after month of unarrested mob property crimes and violence);
  • Chicago (another day that added to the 2,200+ people shot by gangs during 2020).

What went on in your city this past Saturday night?
