I can already feel my inbox bulging at the seams: “Low-carb diets could shorten life, study says.”

Article I’m reading: “Why drink is the secret to humanity’s success.”

Study I found interesting: After their liberation from Japanese rule in 1945, Korean skull size skyrocketed.

  1. “Breastfeeding for six months protects against dental malocclusion”. Does that include non-nutritional breast “feeding” and can it help a man in his 40s achieve better dental occlusion?

    1. Is there anyone moderating these comments?

      1. I think that Aaron just won the “comment of the week” competition…

  2. Happy to see the study on low-carb diets is pending in your queue, Mark! I’m sure I’m one of many who would love to read your insight…

    The concentration on macro intake as a percentage throughout the study seems very misleading to me. They claim that carbohydrate intakes of 50% are ideal for longevity, however there is no baseline given for how many total calories are being ingested by the participants? Nor their general level of fitness and/or exercise routine?

    With a 4000 calorie maintenance, it would be a breeze to take in 2000 calories from carbohydrates whilst consuming plenty of protein and fat. But what about a 2000 calorie diet? That leaves only 1000 calories for BOTH protein and fat intake? Doesn’t seem the healthiest for an active individual…

    1. I also anxiously await Mark’s take on this study.

  3. I knew my children were “unique!” Breastfed exclusively for at least six months (first one was almost a year), but we still spent thousands on orthodontia.

  4. Re the Korea story, in other obvious news that’s obvious, the children of my husband’s generation who were raised in the US & Canada are all a head taller than their parents who were raised in India.

  5. Ayahuasca and DMT…two old friends.

    Amy Berger and Ted Naiman rock.

    Yosemite and the native americans article was excellent. If anyone has time, read about Hetch Hetchy, a close by other valley of pristine beauty that was ruined.
