    can you recommend a test for fatty acids? Are you saying test omegas? Such as omega 3, 6 and the ratios between them?

    There are many different fatty acids.
    Omega 3 and omega 6 are just two classes.
    DHA or EPA are individual acids.

    I test my fatty acids in the USA at LabCorp. Using this test:
    Fatty Acid Profile, Comprehensive (C8-C26), Serum
    If you have time and inclination
    look thru references here:

    The tests below are usually done at kennedykrieger

    Note the %Status
    when=zero the result=the middle of laboratory range
    when plus or minus 50, the results are at the max or min of expected results.
    results within plus/minus 25% are often thought as acceptable/desirable.

    Thanks a lot.
    If you had to recommend a few tests for me to start with, which would you choose? Not to expensive please...
    I have gotten basic blood tests a few times.

    I am not a medical doctor, not even close.
    As a 19yo you may not need any tests, unless you have complaints.
    Observing circadian Rhythm is likely the most important for you.

    It is important to understand how people organize life and finances, often if not mostly, in not the most pretty ways.
    With so many pitfalls, the USA is still the best place in the whole world and the initial idea (and the 10 commandments) came from the place where you are going to study.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    This board is mostly about
    how doctors (especially MD's) are taught (at schools and post it) to treat the patient as a profit center.
    Basically, the same way as a vet is trying to help sick cows so the farmer can have a profit at the end of the day.
    It is not only about western health care, but also about the food industry and everywhere else where the profit or loss is involved.
    So when you find your self in need of getting your thyroid supported,
    make sure that before you eat (Armour Thyroid) you first find the right rabbi to ask if it is ok to do that.

    I see your point. And it is pretty accurate.

    While you are looking for the rabbi that will let you eat pork,
    check ou this rabbi's work.
    Some historical descriptions (in the Torah) may not be accurate (time vise)
    Earth was not always turning 365 times/year, sometimes it was turning 260.
    Why Exodus lasted 40 years? Walking a few miles from Egipt to the promised land.

    Highly interesting

    Is there actual proof of this? Not from the book that has many controversial points.
    It did not take them 40 years just to walk. The Israelites were meant to arrive very quickly. But after the giving of the Torah, because of the sin of the golden calf, god lengthened the time to 40 years to allow the older generation that left Egypt with a slavish mindset to die.

    And no rabbi will ever let you eat pork.
    I don’t think even for medical reasons, as there are no life or death medical reasons that a person must eat pork to survive.

    I would venture to agree with your opinion with regard to about half of those who go to college these days.

    Speaking about USA situation today, a college education is not worth nearly what it used to be several decades ago. Why?

    Many young people have been convinced by their parents, peers, and media that they can not get a good job and succeed in life unless they have a college degree, never mind that many degree majors like Gender Studies, Art History, and Liberal Studies, etc. will certainly not get you a lucrative high-paying career (but will make you suitable materiel for a Starbucks barista job).

    With diploma mills (colleges and universities) churning out mostly mediocre and poorly educated graduates, a college degree has now taken the place of high school diplomas from a few generations ago, in terms of employable value. A college degree only proves that these students put in required class time and managed to not flunk out while partying and vacationing in meantime. Are they educated in real sense of the word? No, they are poorly prepared for challenges of world of work. But many graduates do get an education on how to become a SJW-- just never mind critical and independant thinking skills and a background in understanding the world we face.

    For those young people of high motivation and ability, a proven way to find happiness and success is usually the entrepreneurial path-- pitting their intellect and ambition up against challenges.

    Is there actual proof of this?
    Creator of Electric Universe and the number of others working with him or supporting him bought the premise. And quoting Immanuel Velikovsky as their Founding Father.
    Einstein and Velikovsky were friends or friendly.
    Einstein died reading his book (supposedly).

    If you are looking to study health related science you'd be writing essays about the perils of high fat diets and how you should eat 6 servings of carbs per day.

    Do you agree that humans first evolved in east Africa due to high-DHA shellfish?

    If you do then isn't this a really bad move to let your religion get in the way of your health?

    I respect religious observance btw

    I do believe in the human evolution due to shellfish, however, I believe in Judaism more. It says clearly in the bible not to eat shellfish, to me, that comes straight from god. I prefer to listen to the bible first than modern science.
