Ray Peat talks about serotonin and endotoxins from the gut causing issues, and he suggests eating a raw carrot salad with vinegar and coconut oil to help reduce the bacterial load thus reducing the amounts of endotoxin from the gut. He could be onto something since these 3 foods are somewhat antibiotic.
I would like to learn more about cadmium and manganese. I read an article from the CDC about cadmium found in flax cashews peanuts sunflower seeds etc. They say something like our bodies absorb approximately .5mcg a day of cadmium environmentally and in food but only can rid .
05mcg. And in a human lifetime has max capacity for 2 grams. I might be way off but I'd like to know what say he.
Dr Natsha Campbell McBride: Gut and Psychology Syndrome
Dr. Gregor you need to watch the Rich Roll and Zach Bush podcast on the gut biome and study into that more and make videos and content. I believe you would do so much good for people by doing so. Thank you for everything you do.
No doubt it's not good enough. The thing is, there needs to be a lot more research on a lot of things. A hundred years from now our future generations will be wondering WTF is wrong with us, just like those people from history that thought mercury was cool and used it to treat diseases or how we used to put lead in our gasoline. People are dumb and we usually don't know what we're doing wrong until after a class action lawsuit comes along.

This is the beauty of Dr. G's videos: lots of citations of the source material, relentless insistence on evidence not hearsay, and best of all, he's not selling anything. Compare and contrast with so-called Natural News, which turns out to be neither news nor natural.
A website that makes its money from scaring the shit out of people (with an actual store) , that's about as bad as doing research on cheeseburgers at McDonalds.c om. I'm not saying to trust the FDA but that people need to be careful everywhere- especially in places where you're more willing to accept research simply because it fits with what you're looking for.
No, the good doctor Greger, like everyone else, simply repeated the same old mantra regarding Dr. Wakefield's research. Vaccines are apparently off limits for doctors to weigh in on or they risk their reputations and careers.
My comment was regarding his study of MMR and its effect on the gut, and his subsequent suggestion to further study the topic. The remarks following were typical things that the public has heard and regurgitated about Dr. Wakefield and the horrible human he is.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
