Iron, Food Enrichment and The Theory of Everything

This is the promised greatly expanded post that we touched on here: How Food Enrichment Made Us Fat, Diabetic, and Chronically Diseased. The Duck Dodgers team has been working on this for months and the purpose of that earlier post was to kinda crowdsource the idea, see if there were serious objections we weren’t aware of…Read More

The Baja Six-Month Challenge Update

  It’s an understatement, really. Particularly contemplating that I have almost 5 months of challenges left to go under my lease. I’m not going to get into lots of detail now because it’s really too complex, intertwined, involves personal motivations and goals towards molding a different person in myself; one I like a little better.…Read More

I’ve written about it twice before: Gut Bugs, Probiotics, Prebiotics…And how our microbes make us who we are FODMAP Prebiotic Arms Dealing, Probiotic Mercenaries, and…Read More

I Have Off The Grid Internet Now

Lets me run lights, internet, computers, water pump…even a fan: because it’s not hot…it’s fucking hot. But this line of sight deal into the network smokes. So far, way better than endless video steaming spinning wheels…Read More
