    we (Corey Nelson and I) ran into a pig last night at sunset as she was crossing the street, and she followed us for a while...one of those little things that keeps Mexico interesting

    I can tell calcium buildup is an issue with me. Even after a teeth cleaning my teeth build plaque right away.
    At the moment I'm trying to source vitamin K2, M4 and M7 to mitigate this calcium problem (and hack the environmental cause of the calcium issue too)

    look up life extension super k with advanced k2 complex contains k1, k2 as M4, k2 as M7.

    Thanks for this great article on vitamin D
    From the the article"
    A large percentage of human vitamin D requirements are provided via sun exposure [14] (at latitudes with adequate UVB exposure) which acts through stimulating the conversion of 7-dehydrocholesterol into D3 in the skin [15]. Lifestyle patterns and environments that do not facilitate adequate sun exposure (indoor occupation, “screen time” and active sun avoidance) predispose to inadequate vitamin D synthesis and status. Such populations are therefore reliant on dietary or supplemental sources of vitamin D; a factor that may be playing a role in the current allergy epidemic [16,17].
    The global rise in adult and childhood obesity [18] may also be linked to lower serum 25(OH)D."

    Do you know how vitamin D supplementation or low vitamin D plays a role in the allergy epidemic? Very curious about that.

    I think the report I quoted that Dr. Kruse posted covers it pretty well.

    This is an ID pic of me after a year in Portland, OR.
    I weighed the most in my life, a 217 pound fatass with extremely low vitamin D low testosterone, and high as hell blood pressure.

    I went to a dental school in Portland and they refused to work on me until my blood pressure came down.
    Now, my blood pressure is very good 112/71 and I weigh 162 pounds

    Interesting, so did this help with cramping or your potassium levels?
    Sometimes on nights after CT I will get some cramping in the sides of my lower legs. I supplement some with a potassium magnesium and it seems to take care of it but I would prefer to stay away from the supplements when possible.

    I haven't done labs in a while but cramping legs tell me what I need.
    Boiling peels gives you a tea full of natural potassium, seems to be helping
    Dr Jack told me to avoid fructose (fatty liver thread) so I have to be creative

    Good thought JanSz,. I wanted to check my vitamin d level again before winter so I just might add another test or 2.

    I grew up feeding pigs and I would agree it unlikely that a pig would/could live on only grass. Pigs can and will eat almost anything but most pigs are eating corn mixed with soy protein. That's still vegetarian diet right?
    To me the issue with pork ( and other meats too) is antibiotic use, and GMO corn.

    Cannot help you with antibiotic and GMO.
    But you can check your levels of oleic acid. We need it, pigs have it.
    While doing it, you may want to also check 30+ other interesting items.

  20. I believe the corn fed pork has and gives us an unhealthy omega 6/3 ratio. I still eat factory pork but am looking forward to raising some pigs. Pasture pork sells for $12 pound locally. Still hard to find sometimes.
