January 29, 2020. A little update on my recovery

In my last update, I had just started ‘working’ again in a very limited capacity.

While vitamins and minerals are in chemical form, which cannot be absorbed by humans and need to be converted, other problems also arise, such as antinutrients, fiber, and poisonous plant defense chemicals. The bioavailability and bioconversion …

10 Diet/Nutrition Myths That Must Die In 2020

Plants cannot run away from predators. Therefore, they have developed several sinister defense mechanisms to prevent them from being eaten. These include toxins that are highly poisonous in larger quantities, antinutrients that block nutrients from being absorbed and can cause cellular damage, and phytoestrogens that will make the predator infertile. As for vitamins and minerals, none of these are in bioavailable form and must be converted in our bodies. The bioconversion rate is between …
