mediterranean diet may benefit from mushrooms

17.12.3: 18.7.2: news.health/diet/
mediterranean diet may benefit from mushrooms:
Ergothioneine is a naturally occurring amino acid
and is a thiourea derivative of histidine,
containing a sulfur atom on the imidazole ring.
This compound is made in relatively few organisms,
notably Actinobacteria, Cyanobacteria, and certain fungi.
Food Chemistry, 2017;
Mushrooms: A rich source of the antioxidants
ergothioneine and glutathione.
prof Beelman:
(professor emeritus of food science and director of the
Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Products for Health)
. countries that have more ergothioneine in their diets,
like France and Italy,
also have lower incidents of neurodegenerative diseases,
like Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's.
-- about five button mushrooms each day.


Jewish people know best (avoid or delay some #vaccines)

Jewish people know best (avoid or delay some #vaccines):
2018.6.18: summary:
. the herd-immunity theory is fatally flawed:
it assumes that to protect a minority
you have to ensure the majority are vaccinated;
but, what are the long-term large-scale side-affects
of all these new hardly-tested vaccines?
you need a sizeable control group
who do not take vaccines
to compare them to the group who does.
. Jewish communities are known to be
highly intelligent or well-researched,
and many of some Jewish communities
are refusing or delaying vaccines.

how to process organic greens

web.cook/how to process organic greens:
. I learned that canned greens
retained more fat-soluble vitamins than frozen,
and I couldn't find canned organic greens;
so I consided home canning,
but then decided it's easier to use fresh;
(just need to get to store more often).
. may blanch before vitamixing.
my next cooker might be an Instant Pot Mini.


theory of #evolution renamed biological diversity

5.29: news.pol/edu/biol/
theory of evolution renamed biological diversity:
Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction
Diane Douglas, has a good point;
in the theory of evolution,
we assume that the point of genetic mutation
is to evolve, when in fact
it could be something else like
adapting without necessarily evolving,
or simply to promote diversity.
. obviously some life is highly evolved
so Douglas's wording reminds the student
if random changes do not imply evolution
what does cause it?
. science has no answer for this,
except to say that
no matter how complex the design
it is not impossible
that completely random changes
could have produced the evolution.
. science has no way of disproving
that the genetic changes are not random;
except to remind us
that any alternative theories
involve unpleasant ideas that cause paranoia:
# being genetically modified by aliens;
# having our "randomness" influenced by
an intelligent supernatural entity.
. have you seen our wacky "big bang" theory?
the establishment couldn't care less
about the public knowing how we got here.

cultural appropriation @IngrahamAngle on @FoxNews

@IngrahamAngle on @FoxNews tv:
. you can say I feel like the other sex today,
so I will just dress like the other sex,
and use their bathroom too;
but if you feel chinese,
and say I will dress like the Chinese today,
that's hateful cultural appropriation.


#nationalism goyim, heathen, pagan, gentile, gentility

2017.11.19: pol/purges/nationalism/
goyim, heathen, pagan, gentile, gentility
2018.4.16: summary:
. this is a review of all the terms
that religious nationalists will apply to
those of other religions or classes.
. notice the same root word gent-
can have opposite connotations:
gentiles are lowly, outside your nation;
but gentility refers to nobility
more international than national.
. the "Jus Gentium" (latin: law of nations)
was defined as "the law that
natural reason establishes among all mankind
and is followed by all peoples alike."
. pagan means a civilian, non-combatant:
not a "christian soldier" globalizing Bible law.
