I love these transfusions, always very fascinating. Thanks also for the much needed reminder to eat more fruits and vegetables. The Oxystress test from NAP is great for that, and I'm seeing some improvement in my levels, but I need to keep working on the fruit and veggie numbers to get it down further. A chart on the refrigerator is always helpful in that regard, just to jot down how many servings of the good stuff each day.

I wonder if diet-induced schizophrenia was the underlying cause of the attack by Sandra Herold's pet chimpanzee Travis?

I suspected a link to diet as soon as I read a follow up article in The Hartford Courant which observed, "Unopened boxes and bags of Travis' treats — Butterfingers, Fig Newtons, marshmallow Peeps and coffee cakes — are piled on the floor and counters." I even blogged about it:

Hi,
Here's a topic I would like to know more about. Its about how glycation is reduced in food prepared by cooking at lower temperature and avoiding browning. Is there anything to this. If so, how should one prep food to avoid AGE's.

I heard one scientist discuss precooking ground beef for 1 minute in the microwave. I don't want it to ruin the taste of course. Maybe steaming could be used for fish instead of pan frying. Boiling vegetables vs. oven baking, etc.

Here's a link to a study on microwave cooking and glycation:

A topic of interest might be:
Reducing inflamation via BTD versus statins to control cardiovascular issues. It is scary to hear & read about a 5 med pill containing statins, diabetes med, aspirin and 2 blood pressure meds. Touted as one pill for all.

Dr. D. thanks for your efforts and generosity in sharing your knowledge.
