The internet is deffo' a mind game, threads, forums and chat rooms. How about a health thread? Any ideas on staying healthy? How about cancer? Thyroid issues? Common colds? Hearing issues? Skin cancer prevention? I think this would be a great thread for folks in the sci-fi community to throw some working ideas out there because that's what info sharing is all about....

I believe there is truth behind the "Blood Type" diet. Even that original diet has gone through some changes, it's more targeted at your body type/genetic make-up now.
So, my blood type, O, doesn't do well on carbs.
I'm living proof.
I'm off all those allergy/sinus prescriptions since giving up grains. Joint pain disappeared too.

I heard of it a while back, match your blood type to your diet, o,a,b etc. Example, one blood type will say avoid fish but eat veggies, others will say you can eat red meat, it should be somewhere on line....

Acidity in the diet is also important.
Tips for Limiting Acidic Foods
The pH value tells you if something is an acid, a base, or neutral.
  • A pH of 0 indicates a high level of acidity.
  • A pH of 7 is neutral.
  • A pH of 14 is the most basic, or alkaline.
For example, battery acid is extremely acidic at 0, while liquid drain cleaner is very alkaline at 14. Pure distilled water is in the middle at 7. It’s neither acidic nor alkaline.

Just like different substances, different parts of the human body have different pH levels. Your ideal blood pH is between 7.35 and 7.45, which is slightly alkaline. The stomach is typically at a pH of 3.5, which helps food break down properly.

A diet that includes too many acid-producing foods, such as protein or sugar, can cause acidity in your urine as well as other negative health effects. This may cause a type of kidney stone called uric acid stones to form.

It’s been speculated that too much acidity can also cause bone and muscle deterioration. This is because bones contain calcium, which your body uses to restore your blood’s pH balance when it becomes too acidic. Some evidence suggests that phosphoric acid, commonly found in darker sodas, is linked to lower bone density, especially when it replaces milk, a calcium- and protein-rich beverage. Too much acidity can also increase your risk for cancer, liver problems, and heart disease.

All natural vitamins are organic food substances found only in living things, that is, plants and animals. With few exceptions, the body cannot manufacture or synthesize vitamins. They must be supplied by the diet or in dietary supplements. Vitamins are essential to the normal functioning of our bodies. They are necessary for growth, vitality, health, general well being, and for the prevention and cure of many health problems and diseases.

HOW THEY WORK: A lot of people think vitamins can replace food, they cannot! In fact, vitamins cannot be assimilated without ingesting food. That is why they should be taken with a meal. Vitamins regulate metabolism, help convert fat and carbohydrates into energy, and assist in forming bone and tissue.
