    Hi all,

    Is buckwheat a yes or a no in the Epi-Paleo Diet?
    I consume it as crackers and boiled, instead or rice.

    Hi Lahelada,
    What is the motivation for this?
    High in deuterium or....?

    Lahelada New Member

    Yes, it is high in deuterium (C3 photosynthesis)

    W"has the highest level of deuterium in it? This is where you’re going to laugh. Vegetarians won’t like this part. Anything that’s made from C3 or C4 photosynthesis. It turns out C3 photosynthesis forms 80% of the food webs on the planet. That’s the one that has the highest level of deuterium in it. That’s the one that vegetarians eat. What depletes us of deuterium? Solar mechanism, meaning the sun and your circadian biology. It’s present in many different systems. When I went back to the Weston A. Price meeting in 2018, that’s what the talk was about."

    Hi Lahelada,
    Thank you very much for this!
    I will add this to my NEED TO READ/SEE LIST.
    As I have to study on what's C3 and C4 photosynthesis.

    I was ,once, in the past, a vegetarian on and off :(
    All together maybe 3 years from my 52 years life on earth.
    It was the book "The vegetarian myth" written by Lierre Kieth, that brought the light :)

    Attempting to minimize variables.
    As you study
    on one of the iterations
    make the assumption that with whatever you would do, whatever practices, exercises or food you would eat,
    you would drink DDW and test your blood and urine, or saliva and newer had any of those three numbers higher than 130ppm(D/H)
    try to figure out how that would affect the outcome.

    I thought buckwheat was in the rhubarb family.

    Hi Kim,

    You are correct.
    I am not sure what you mean with your comment?
    Could you explain please.

  15. I throw down buckwheat seeds as a cover crop between rows in the garden mixed with clover, alfalfa and broccoli. The buckwheat has nice flowers for the bees and builds good biomass for soil. Also provides distraction for uninvited guests.

    Oh, the buckwheat is a nitrogen fixer?

    Those beings are all relying you Marko.

    Have you ever been tempted to call them out as just a bunch of sheep?
  17. It is listed as a nitrogen fixer but i think it gets non linear when it goes through the sheep.

    They never let me forget they're relying on me.

    They are so much better than people. Have taught me quite a bit. Very joyous to be around.

    Hi,,Just wondering if you knew that buckwheat was in the rhubarb family., sorry, just trying to help.

    Thanks, I avoid it because of having histamine intolerance. An interesting site for me: h2-4you.com regarding duterium.

    Do you know whether it lowers duterium effectively when filtered water is left in sun for 6 hours?
