TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Omega3: This Fat Helps Reduce Anxiety and Inflammation
New research shows that healthy young people who consumed more omega-3 fats showed a marked reduction both in inflammation and, somewhat surprisingly, also in anxiety.
Omega-3's such as EPA and DHA have long been considered positive additives to the diet. Previous research suggested that the compounds might play a role in reducing the level of inflammatory cytokines.
In addition, according to Eurekalert:
"[P]sychological surveys clearly showed an important change in anxiety among the students: Those receiving the omega-3 showed a 20 percent reduction in anxiety compared to the placebo group."

Why flax seeds may be the best source of omega-3
Flax seeds, purchased in health food store bulk sections, are very inexpensive. They store easily for long periods until ground. They have to be ground for consumption. A coffee grinder works, and they should be consumed shortly after grinding, within an hour or so.
The ground seeds can be eaten by the spoonful or added to cereals and smoothies. It's recommended to have at least two tablespoons per day. But more is better, especially since Fukushima.

frying in the right oils


Fried foods not a heart health risk if you use the right oils, say researchers

A common dietary fallacy among many people, resulting from misinformation in media outlets, is fear of fats. If you still harbor lingering anxieties about consuming any type of oil for fear you will have a heart attack, fear no more. A recent study in Spain found that eating food fried in olive or sunflower oil does not cause heart disease.

saturated fats


Dutch Get it Right and Recognize Saturated Fat is Not a Problem

A new study from the Netherlands has aroused a great deal of interest, especially as it comes immediately in the wake of an ill-conceived Danish tax that unfairly targets saturated fats.

The study found that dietary intake of saturated fatty acids is associated with a modest increase in serum total cholesterol -- but not with cardiovascular disease.
However, replacing dietary saturated fats with carbohydrates is associated with an increase in cardiovascular disease risk.

olive oil


Toxic rapeseed and other low-grade oils with additives are being passed off as olive oil
As much as 50 percent of the olive oil sold in the U.S. is not actually pure olive oil, as some brands claiming to be "extra-virgin" or "100 percent Italian," for instance, have actually been adulterated with toxic rapeseed oil, more popularly known as canola oil, soybean oil, and other low-grade oils. In his new book Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil, olive oil expert Tom Mueller explains that not all olive oil is the same, and offers advice on how to spot authentic olive oil amidst all the imposters.

Of those brands tested, the following failed to meet extra-virgin olive oil standards:
• Bertolli
• Carapelli
• Filippo Berio
• Mazzola
• Mezzetta
• Newman's Own
• Pompeian
• Rachel Ray
• Safeway
• Star
• Whole Foods

adulterated omega 3's & 6's


In this podcast with Ted Slanker he says that the ratio of omega 3's and 6's should be 1:1.
He says it's very important to stay near this ratio and that it's been proved scientifically [i.e. research, not consensus] that a ratio of over 1:4 (of omega 3's to 6's) causes big problems.
For this reason he especially suggests great caution in eating nuts, particularly walnuts (which already contain 4:1 6's over 3's).
He says he himself takes flaxseed oil daily because of it's high amounts of omega 3's. Here's a list of foods high in omega 3's.

In this podcast with Brian Peskin the professor makes clear that it's important to get PARENT Omega 3's and 6's [i.e. both]. That means that the BAD Omega 6's that are everywhere will not help you. The higher the percentage of good [i.e. parent] Omega fats [3 & 6], the better. That means that eating nuts (in the morning) is a good habit...
The parent Omega 3's and 6's sustain the body, while adulterated fats [most things from a factory] are combined molecular strings of fat that cause problems.

I tried eating less nuts in the morning but i get extremely dry skin and dandruff. The day i started eating nuts again that went away. I'm tending to appreciate professor Peskin's approach to the Omega fat issue, therefore.

A caveat i'd like to place with his remarks in this podcast on not being able to find many fruits or nuts in nature, an argument also presented by paleo diet man Aajonus Vonderplanitz: mankind is a very strange large mammal:
- our eyes can't bear the Sun
- we're blind at night
- we're weak and slow compared to all other large mammal (including apes)
- our skin can't take the Sun
We just don't seem to belong on this planet! As one might find argued in Matthew and Kevin Taylor's book Land of No Horizon, mankind originated in Hollow Earth. At least we're a hybrid between surface-dwelling apes and Hollow Earth sentient species.
In Hollow Earth there's abundant fruit and year-round.
Whether one accepts the facts, logic, and sense concerning this matter is a key point in one's approach to diet. If there is no Hollow Earth, people like Ted Slanker are 100% correct.

chia seed and omega 3


Why Chia Seeds Win in Battle of Omega-3 vs. Omega-6
Omega-6 acids are much more prevalent than Omega-3 in most foods consumed in Western diets. Nutrition experts say a healthy ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 in a diet ranges between 1:1 and 4:1, but the typical North American diet has a ratio of up to 30 times the amount of Omega-6 than Omega-3. A food such as corn oil can be as skewed as 50:1 in favor of Omega-6 and even the soybean, used in tofu and as a staple in diets of the Far East, has a disproportionately high amount of Omega-6 with a 7:1 ratio. The Chia seed, on the other hand, has three times the amount of Omega-3 than Omega-6 in its makeup. Therefore, by consuming more Chia in your diet you will balance out the ratio of fatty-acid intake in your daily nutrition. A correct balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 leaves you with healthier brain function and allows for normal development of the body.
Though chia seeds don't quite offer as many omega 3's per serving as flaxseeds do, it's much easier to eat (more) chia than flaxseed, and also more tasty.
Add water to chia seeds, maybe some lime or sugar [typical South American recipe], and you can consume a delicious porridge that is a staple food to some afficionados. Add chia to a larger amount of liquid and have it as a beverage, also works.
Chia seeds were literally gifts to ancient South American royalties. They were valued above gold and considered a precious commodity. Now we know why...

omega 3 & 6


(Growing) list of fats & oils and their omega ratios.

"Still Taking Fish Oil? Check Out This NEW Warning..."
The above link goes to a Mercola article that also advertises one of his products. I don't endorse his products, nor do i dislike them. The article just contains interesting data.
I recently, for the first time in my life, heard a podcast that gave me an idea of the importance of the Omega fats. I have honestly just been ignoring the entire issue since i had no pegs to hang the data or opinions around it on. In this post on the danger of Omega 6's i link to a podcast with Ted Slanker at OneRadioNetwork that explains the issue clearly.
He suggests being very careful about eating nuts because they contain a dangerous Omega 3 to 6 ratio, i.e. far too many Omega 6 compared to 3's (which would ideally [according to him] be at a 1:1 ratio).
He mentions that this is a crucial aspect to health and that a skewed ratio causes all kinds of health problems, from obesity to cancer.
Ted Slanker suggests that most people even have 1:15 or 1:20 Omega 3 to 6 ratios (instead of anything near 1:1). He says any ratio above 1:4 [3 to 6] causes health issues.
The main literature, more-or-less mainstream as well as alternative, seems to suggest having fish oil or flaxseed oil as a supplement to improve the Omega fat ratio.
Someone i recently spoke to mentioned hemp seed. A quick look into this suggests that they are better than flaxseed in many ways, though not as powerful in bringing Omega fat ratios to where they should be. Other than Omega fats, hemp seeds [they're actually nuts] are better for many reasons, like because of the excessive phytoestrogenic properties of flaxseed.
So i bought 500gr of hempseed at the local petshop. Set me back 2 euros...
They taste nutty, like taking a handful of sunflower seeds. Not bad at all.
The person who told me that HE takes hempseed said he baked them. Well, that just destroys the superior amino acids and fats, so i just popped them in my mouth raw, i.e. rawfood. Works fine. It's cheap, tastes great, is filling, nutritional, easy... What else could you ask for?
See for lots of good info on hemp products Hemp USA.
You'll also find radio interviews listed there, including the one i heard with Patrick Timpone of OneRadioNetwork.
Oil Comparison Chart
Omega 3 to Omega 6
Flax Seed Oil 4:1
Chia Seed 3:1
Soybean Oil 1:1
Canola Oil 1:2
Hemp Seed Oil 1:3
Evening of Primrose 1:7
Coconut Oil 0:2
Purslane
These ratios apply to the RAW [!] oils. The whole issue with heated oils is that the fatty acids turn bad. Then you're generally left with a whole lot of bad Omega 6s at a terrible ratio to the 3s, as well.
 
Obviously, there are more issues than Omega fat ratio alone. Though canola and soy oils have more Omega 3's, otherwise (research shows) they are inferior oils, if not downright dangerous to your health. It is for this reason that i mention hemp seeds or hempseed oil in relation to Omega fats; as a staple food hemp offers good and safe nutrition besides having good Omega fat qualities.
See the link to hemp for more about this SUPERFOOD.

cholesterol


Cholesterol-bus [vehicle] analogy
Fatty acids make the fat-soluble ball transportable through the blood. They are the interface. Lipids also carry proteins.
The fatty acids are like the tires (on the wheel), the blood stream is the road, proteins are the driver of the bus.

High intake of cholesterol shown to actually repair damaged brains
It turns out that cholesterol actually helps increase production of an important component of the nervous system that facilitates proper nerve cell communication, and prevents the onset of brain diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
The implications for all individuals are striking, as the study further reinforces the idea that cholesterol is a necessary component of proper brain and nervous system function in everyone. This unconventional concept has been confirmed in several earlier studies, including a comprehensive study published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Heart surgeon openly admits low-fat diets recommended for years by mainstream medicine actually cause heart disease
The low-fat diet can be traced to studies conducted as far back as the 1940s, in which scientists observed a correlation between what they saw as "high-fat" diets and high cholesterol levels. From there, over the course of several decades, the ideology that low-fat diets were good for the heart and beneficial in maintaining healthy weight became etched in stone as fact, with little room for honest inquiry or opposition.

Is it Essential to Eat Fat on a Raw Vegan Diet?
Omega 3's can be found in raw greens and fruit. If you juice green vegetables, you will likely have enough Omega 3's for your daily needs.
