The U.S. Congress is considering another "Authorization for the Use of Military Force" -- a broad approval for more war. This is the last thing we need. These wars are not making us safer but generating enemies. They are not surgical operations, but mass killings, as well as assaults on the natural environment and the public budget -- not to mention excuses for curtailing civil liberties. Please sign this statement for delivery to the media and Congress: http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=10938 Continue reading

High RBC counts should help with the retention of iron. NIH:Study shows iron supplementation after blood donation shortens hemoglobin recovery time http://1.usa.gov/1Ah75iV I recommend stopping iron supplementation after the suggested number of weeks. People who give blood regularly will likely know if they are in the low or high iron group. Did great on the hills, so probably right about blood donation, etc. I think the added capacity means more iron free hemoglobin sites available. It would be great to have supplementation guidelines for well-conditioned athetes, so that they don't overshoot. Too iron much is bad. It's also likely best... Continue reading

For years, I've considered parsley flavonoid to be my top find, but the additive effects of running could vastly overshadow that. It's fortunate, when one thing builds upon another. Without a lifelong habit of biking, the running would have been more difficult. Biking and bicycle commuting are the foundation of the whole thing, something I learned on my LDS mission. Michael L. Love: A personal statement http://bit.ly/SfAep0 This Mormon upbringing gave me a familiarity with fasting and its benefits, which preceded much of the research. I also decided on the life sciences path on my mission.The reason was explicit. I... Continue reading

I was abit shocked the other day to find some improvement along the gum line, so checked... http://bit.ly/183Qu7s . It's no surprise that running would improve gum lines. Many of you will probably know that gum health is predictive for cardiovascular disease. The gums were already exceptionally healthy, which is why I was so shocked by the improvement. Running works. People used to say that the gums could not be regenerated. We now know better. There are some reports of gum soreness from running, but it is likely transient, and some adverse microorganisms probably can't hack the training. Immune withdrawal... Continue reading

I rode to liberty reservoir today and took some late autumn photos, including some nice sunsets. It was a five hour ride, and the temperature was in the 30s. The new winter boots seem to be doing the job. https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnudarwin/ It will be colder tomorrow. I'll go out again and add some thermal socks, which should be quite an improvement. It was immensely satisfying to ride so far in such cold temperatures. Continue reading

The caveat of the cold adaptation training is to avoid actual hypothermia and frostbite. If you are training in the cold, you should look up the symptoms of these problems, so that you can avoid them. One solution for me is to workout near the train lines. If you need to bail, the nice warm train is not far. Bicyclers can include a blanket or additional warm clothes in the panniers. If you are running in the near athletic range, adding a light pack for cold weather is also probably a good idea. Essentially, if you have proven to yourself... Continue reading

Last night my toes were numb. Today, I feel hearty. Go figure. Happy winter! I also noticed the vibration in the fingers this morning. This is good progress. It would be worth looking at the frequency of the vibration, which is similar to shivering vibration and tongue trill. People also say you can get a taste of this, as it were, from szechuan peppers, which can also produce numbness. These peppers are ironically noted for their heat, but they are overloading the channels that are related to cold sensation. It was in the low 20s F. I also noticed the... Continue reading

Read the calorie labels, including the pet food. Weigh your pets. The calculation is really easy. Put more food in the dish than your animal will eat in a day. Weigh the dish before and after, and subtract. Divide the calories per day by the animal's weight,&do the same thing for all your pets, and yourself too. Behold your numbers! If you like numbers, it's easy to calculate the extra calorie calorie burn in freezing weather. Look up average thermogenics at room temp. There is zero thermogenic calorie burn at body temperature. Put the numbers on a graph, and draw... Continue reading

It looks like fasting intervals can sum up to about 12 days per month. I don't recommend going all the way to 15 days. Even half of that should bring some benefit. Nice thing about intervals, a person should be able to start low and work up to it. For example, if you managed to fast twice for three days each month, this would be comparable to 20% calorie restriction. Like a workout, you could piece intervals together. I had to break my fast early this weekend, so I'm fasting again next weekend. It is intermittent fasting for fitness buffs.... Continue reading

I'm looking at ATCV-1. It is a chlorovirus. It would be interesting to see if the rate of infection is higher in the coastal areas. One wonders about the prevalence in populations that consume raw fish. Similarly, populations consuming alot of raw sea plants might also have a higher infection rate. ATCV-1 can survive freezing at -70C. Here is chlorovirus a that makes SOD. Perhaps there is a survival advantage. http://1.usa.gov/113MJLk If the virus is as virulent as in algae, it should produce noticeable irritation in the throat. It is postulated that intelligence is affected by the inflammatory load of... Continue reading

do bats hibernate? - Google Search http://bit.ly/1ugNJrc Bat hibernation probably explains why I have not recently been chased by hungry bats. Late in the season, fitness buffs must look awfully tasty to cold bats. When you are radiating alot of heat, you look more attractive to bats and mosquitoes as well. This is one reason I prefer biking. Angry dive bombing birds usually miss the bicyclers too. Bees and wasps provide alot of incentive to improve your uphill skills. Bicyclers also seem to have an advantage against rock-throwing citizens, tho I'd imagine the runners do OK. As a matter of... Continue reading

An man of average size will lose about 1500 calories of body weight each day. 1500 calories is equal to about 1 lb of body weight, biking for about 3 hours, or running 4 hours. I've noticed that fasting is alot like extreme training except you don't get winded. Fasting makes a person tired in a similar way as hard work. Fasted muscles may be a little slow and crampy for this reason. It is alot like the after effects of exercise. These observations probably explain why is fasting better than exercise from a longevity perspective, although you really need... Continue reading

ISIS has not killed any innocent American women and children. That is what Obama does. More No terrorist organization has killed as many innocent people as the US has, not even close. The stupid war against terrorism http://bit.ly/QvGbbE Now they blow things up and say ISIS did. This type of deception is so typical of US. I am outraged that anyone supports US. It is crucial to disavow the criminal actions of US gov, and disengage from their media, their products, and their politics. We should do whatever we can do to resist US war plans. We hear how the...

The US has made the world a more dangerous place today. US airstrikes make more terrorist attacks, not less. The US is deliberately provoking #ISIS into attacking Americans. We've been watching US militarism for a long time. You know these #airstrikes are just the beginning. Fight them now. The first thing to do is to disengage from US consumerism. Shun their media and their products. Sell your car and buy a #bicycle. It is really about self-reliance. Why should you depend on US mass-murderers for your #food, clothing, media, etc. US #MSM has been consistently lying to us. Pull the... Continue reading

We need to hear less about minimum exercise requirements and more about how more exercise is better. Every wonder why aerobic capacity seems to be not transferable from one sport to another. People need to consider the range. It's really a misconception, but non-transferable capacity is consistent with most people's experience. Why? I know of no theory that could possibly explain why capacity doesn't transfer between sports. Now you have probably surmised that I have discovered the answer to this conundrum. I think I have the reason. Advanced aerobic training is required to create a capacity that is transferable to... Continue reading

Longevity is not a vain pursuit. It reflects quality of life, like birth rate, infant mortality, and general rates of disease and mortality. Some will know that I'm a Mormon, http://bit.ly/1mKGe3z . If longevity is not a value, then everlasting life is not a value either. Quality. The longevity pursuit has been glad handled with accusations of basic human foibles, such as vanity & self-aggrandizement. These are false. The most convenient way to defeat your legitimate interest in longevity is to launch into a smear job against the practitioners. We see this again and again. Beneficial practices are subjected to...

If you are like me, you are hungry most of the time, and well able to eat a sufficient amount of food to produce the effect of obesity. While this may seem like a trivial observation, it is not. It is merely commonplace. Some careful thinking yields helpful insights. How many calories are needed? I think most people have the urge to eat far more calories than they actually need to sustain a basic level of life. There is this unfortunate tendency to mystify the basal metabolic rate, but it is dead easy to measure. Just measure the average weight... Continue reading
