Re: Blue Zones, specifically Seventh Day Adventists

Does everyone here never let a forbidden grain, a piece of sourdough or whole wheat bread, a nightshade vegetable cross their lips???? From my impression, they don't and I guess I'm just baffled. Not sure where you got the idea that everyone on the site eats the Gundry or Bredesen strictly everyday...

Re: How to adjust keto diet to maximize APOE4 health?

With 150g of net carbs per day, do you easily produce ketones? I went back and looked at my last tracking in December. My daily carbs were kinda all over the place, but generally in mornings after a eating in the 50-100 grams range of carbs, my ketones would range over 1, and mornings after eating ...

Re: How to adjust keto diet to maximize APOE4 health?

Did you also make some changes to the keto diet? As per the other thread, I've been tinkering with my diet to add more carbs, heading towards somewhere around 150 grams net carbs per day. In addition to low numbers of certain microbiome strains (that are carb lovers), I also have trouble keeping on...

Re: Any thoughts on lecithin (phosphatidylcholine)?

This issue is probably more nuanced than choline = TMA = heart disease. I posted this article in another thread, but thought it would be useful to this discussion. Bottom line with any associative study is we don't understand what folks are eating besides meat or eggs (or anything else for that matt...

Re: Very Good Peter Attia podcast

When you say "minor allele" are you saying that "G" is the non-protective version that is usually associated with ApoE4? The paper I cited earlier in this thread said "G" increases the risk. Sorry, we all hope to win the genetic lottery to modify E4 effects, but someti...

It's not in any reports. You have to click the "Browse Raw Data" in the dropdown menu under your name. Then put rs2075650 in the search box and read the results. "G" is the minor allele.

Transposable elements, aka "Jumping genes" a trigger in brain inflammation

Beyond viral infection as a trigger to Alzheimers, we now may also have "jumping genes." Alzheimer's disease and progressive supranuclear palsy are marked by toxic deposits of a protein called tau. Their research found that tau-induced "jumping genes" -- which can relocate or cop...

Re: Prodrome blood test results, initial and over time

Do you know the advantages of taking Citicoline versus Phosphatidylcholine? I think it depends on what your goals are. Choline gets metabolized differently depending on your body's needs. For example, I'm post-menopausal and have PEMT variants that suggest that Phosphatidylcholine (skipping the PEM...
