Well, ideally, you'd drink filtered water.  And keep drinking the cranberry.  I was just saying you might want to not drink too much...

I was thinking, what kind of filter should I use?
I'd buy distilled water, no fluoride, then put it through the filter........sound good?

The ideal is a good home filtration system.  Not everyone can afford that however...

Imo the less you drink anything from plastic the better until they get all this sorted out.

yes, thats my issue with the home filtration sytem,I was thinking about getting a brita
I doubt they ever get anything sorted out, I look at the transfat issue..we all know transfats are bad for you, yet the fda goes to great lenghths to allow us to keep eating transfats
simply telling us the nutrition of a whole package(of whatever we buy) and anything about 0.000mg would allow people to make better choices

I got my nativas chocolate today
it's not a hershey kiss at all, but I enjoy it, straight, no tea, nothing, small amount straight to mouth, washed down with water....tastes good, makes me happy!

I know you said the Kuna  tribe has more than 1 gram/day, what is the max you should take/day?
3.5 oz./day of dark chocolate lowered blood pressure by 12 and 9 points after just 15 days!
how many grams is there?

You're just trying to get the nitrates, so any decent brand should be good. 

The extracts should be good but are relatively new.  No brand recommendations at this point.  I looked in Consumer Lab and don't see anything either.

I'd be a little nervous a) doing them in the microwave and b) not cooking them all the way.  The reason is that a high number of eggs have salmonella and it's very important to wash your hands after handling and cook the eggs very thoroughly.  Salmonella is rare, but if you get a full-fledged case, it's very miserable.

And, btw, there has been a recent outbreak that was leaked:

oh, opps
I wasnt very clear
I posted that Better than Eggs is where I get my eggwhites from
http://www.thebestlife.com/assets/img/approved-foods/logo2_03.jpg

so they are in BPA free containers( I asked) and I pour them and microwave them
usually, I just drink the eggwhites straight, when I cookthem I add Franks Hot sauce to help them go down
no fears of Salmonella

I get my vi C from pills, not by eating oranges, I imagine vit C from oranges is the same as vit C from pills

I also tend not to eat so much broccoli because I get my Diindolylmethane (DIM) from Purebulks Diindolylmethane (DIM) powder
is that as good as broccoli?

Gotcha.  Well, I would still make sure they were cooked thoroughly.

And the DIM supplements have much more than what you would get a serving of broccoli, so there's really no comparison.  You would have to eat literally pounds and pounds of broccoli.

I dont usually cook them at all, they are pasteurized

I sometimes microwave them in the microwave for about 6 mins, When done  they have  the consistency of spongecake with a crusty coating, what I was concerned about is that outer coating, it's just eggwhites, but could the microwaving cause it to contain HCA's (heterocyclic amines)?


HCAs form on the surface of cooked proteins when they're prepared by high heat cooking methods. Those cooking methods include both charring on a grill and hard-searing in a skillet on the stove. The more well-done or charred a protein, the more HCAs are produced. In the 2007 update to their study, the AICR listed that HCA formation might be related to development of certain cancers. However, the group's most recent study update found a definite causal link between people who consumed a high level of well-done or charred meats and proteins, and people who developed colon, lung and prostate cancers.

also, if whole eggs increase HDL, why arent they on your list?
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/How_To_Increase_HDL_Levels.aspx
Researchers also recently found that eggs do something strange and marvelous:  they substantially raise HDL (at least in overweight men on a calorie restricted diet). [11]  This study found that neither bad cholesterol nor triglycerides, the bad cholesterols, were increased significantly at all, while HDL, the good cholesterol, was increased by almost 50%!  In other words, there is a good chance, although this has not been studies either way, that a whole egg a day is actually heart healthy.

Gotcha.  Don't know the answer for sure about the HCA's, although I don't think so.

Also, you have to realize that my site it put together by a guy with a pretty demanding day job, wife and three kids.  So I admit that not only is the site not particularly well-edited but it is definitely not comprehensive.  I generally agree with you regarding egg yolks, and think that the benes of eating an egg are approximately equal to the cons.  But I do have one concern:  AA.  Egg yolks are pretty high in Arachidonic Acid and so it very much a tradeoff food.  It has great antioxidants (lutein, etc.), good brain nutrients (Choline) and so on.  On the other hand, it will slightly raise cholesterol and may increase inflammation depending on a variety of lifestyle and dietary factors.

I like this site, it's not perfect, but you provide great information and you can't beat the price.  Im certainly not trying to do more than pose question,(I thought there might have been a reason why eggs weren't in the HDL building article)
If I find out about HCAs in microwaved eggwhites, I'll mention it..I read that microwaving meat helps reduce HCAs compared to cooking.

I know I wish I had known this stuff before I go into my 20s, or even 30s,  I envy your kids! (espically if they're males!)
