    A NASA contractor who for obvious reasons wants to maintain anonymity said very recently their measurements show we've destroyed up to 90% of the ozone layer, the layer that protects (protected) most life on this planet from deadly solar radiation. Decades of CFCs and geoengineering, couple centuries of industrial activity, recent uptick in methane and nitrous oxide hydrates, untold number of black ops military nnEMF assaults to the atmosphere, and we're getting very close to completion of the 6th great extinction. If we needed UVC the ozone wouldn't have blocked it before we destroyed it.

    I spoke with a professional NYC rooftop landscape gardener yesterday. He said he can't be out in the sun more than five minutes before the pain starts now, something he noticed in the past five years. I know professional organic small scale food farmers who say some of their crops will die now without shade cover, people who've been farming for 30 years. I've had strangers at the conservatory tell me the sun's more painful too when they ask why I'm sunbathing indoors. I see friends who used to tan dark just fine come back from vacations now cherry red from nnUVB/C burns. All and I mean All my real world experience tells me we don't need this. Frankly I believe some posters here are operating under cognitive bias, not wanting to believe their invested sunbathing has been detrimental.

    I came to the realization not long ago NASA's biosphere project long term was never really about colonizing the moon or Mars because the best paid research in the world isn't stupid, but about creating habitat on this planet once all the native habitat and ozone are gone. But as with everything else in the matrix, it's all futile hubris. Gaia's having the last laugh while everyone's been zapped blind.

    When in town I experience this also, a higher more variable heart rate (not as relaxed) and the frequency of palpitations increases. Have never had any pain.

    Emma .....how are you when you go off camping in the woods for a week or two???

    Jack has often mentioned that the land your house sits on could be a big problem.

    I guess the reality is ....none of you are optimal at your property......

    Maybe it isn't enuf to just "turn the page" you may have to "close the book" to move forward.

    What kind of pigs do you raise? We've been looking at KuneKunes. The BIG fellas scare the heck outta me!

    haven't done a week or two of camping! But I feel amazing when I'm out hiking or playing in the mountains in rivers. Actually, interesting point that I was going to post today is that I did CT mid-day today. I had breakfast early, eggs, and then got nauseas and felt horrible, decided I'd just "try CT" and low and behold, as soon as I got in the tub my stomach stopped hurting and I relaxed, like my whole body. Now remember, I HATE cold, everything about it, but even being freezing ass cold, shivering with goosebumps, I was relaxed and my anxiety calmed. Maybe my stomach is just related to anxiety? I've been told this before when I refused anti anxiety drugs.

    I feel like as I dive deeper and learn more, read more, listen more, there is so much more to take into account. It's not as simple as I wanted it to be......the last Q and A did not seem hopeful, but rather "get the shit outta there" and when you have little kids, and see the benefit, but also have so many questions, it's hard to uproot and just say, "I have no idea where we're going or how we'll afford it or what the hell we'll do, come on, it'll be fun."

    All this and I'd love to actually help others, especially with kids....we've seen such a turn around in our kids and I know we'll only see more!

    sometimes eggs make me sick ....other times not.

    You must be so anxious about everything now .......maybe C/T can be your daily think tank???? Remember Jack says it doesn't have to be that cold to start.

    Baby steps Emma .....Rome wasn't built in a day.

    The kids are doing better? It is just their crazy Mom is a wack job - trying to figure all this out ?

    That was said with love BTW :):oops::confused:

    We have had different heritage breeds. I would worry less about size (our biggest pigs have been the most friendly and the nastiest have been small ones)...get them young and give them lots of scratching (i.e. pig love) and they will be gentle giants. That said, they do not appreciate their own size, so I would not have my little ones go play with them unsupervised.

    Finally got my haplotype: J1c2c

    Not sure what to do with this now! As much as I've heard Jack talk about SNPs and Haplotype, I still don't know how to read this. When I search MTHFR in 23andme raw data, I get 21 things that pop up. Does that mean that those are all variations that I have?

    My goal is to figure out my optimal enviornment (and hopefull to extrapolate that to my children as well).

    Thanks for any input or direction.

    New finding: I'm ApoE4 (two 4s).

    * sigh

    AD runs strong in my family. I'm trying to figure out what "optimal" looks like for me and would love to hear from @Jack Kruse about if this gene changes anything that he recommends?

    Found this crazy study that says those with Apoe4 allele should NOT eat much Omega 3, but upon reading it, it looks like there are actually populations where the gene is protective, just not in our western culture. Looks like food had a lot less to do with it than living an outside rural existence (read: lots of sun, lots of nature, no tech). https://lmreview.com/omega-3s-apoe-genotype-and-cognitive-decline/

    Would love to hear your response Jack about not eating Omega 3s. My guess is that if your redox is good, omega 3s are fine, it's just a shit environment that causes the body to not be able to process or deal with whatever your throw it's way.

    With ApoE4 is sun even MORE important? Can I hack it at 35th latitude?????????

    Haplotype J1c2c
    C677T is A/G
    A1298C is T/T
    VDR receptor is G/G

    Report also said I have increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, but not sure what variant says that.

    Found these (all suggesting increased insulin in PCOS)
    rs13405728 G/G
    rs2293275 T/T
    rs10818854 A/G

    Last doc visit noticed beginnings of elevated insulin resistance but I'm skinny and "healthy" by most standards with a BMI of 19 and I detest sugar. Weird.
