Hi Ken

Thanks for your site, I’ve learned a lot from reading it

Your Noam Chomsky, and Peak Oil stuff is great

Keep up the good work, I hate to think how much email you must get, but if you get a chance, and want to learn more about nutrition, I recommend - nothing like having your beliefs turned on their head!

Cheers Ian

Dear Ian Gregson,

I just read your article on the website about Weston Price and his nutritional research. It is mind boggling.

I am going to institute his findings into my diet, now!

Thank you for making this available, and to remind us where our true nutrition comes from -- the natural world.

Hi Ken,

I wanted to alert you to the perhaps questionable nature of the information on the Weston Price Foundation site. The article about B12, for example, indicates that a 1982 study showing that vegans and vegetarians had substandard B12 levels indicates that you can't get enough B12 from spirulina and other non-animal foods. Most of the sources in this article are from the 70s and 80s, and while I have great doubts about science funded by big money, I'd consider the idea that big money funds modern research on unprocessed foods and vegetarian diets with a fair amount of skepticism.

Seems a little fishy to me. Personally, most of the vegetarians and vegans I know simply stop eating animal products but don't exactly eat a balanced diet or take the time to learn about nutrition. Therefore, I'd question the validity of the sample data there.

Furthermore, other misinformation on the site says things like "you shouldn't eat whole grains" if they're not "properly prepared" without actually qualifying the statement or explaining how to prepare them properly. I'm disinclined to accept such an assertion; people have been eating whole grains for years, and I've read a pretty significant amount of material that suggests it is the gluten that is less healthy than the husk of the grain. The gluten, rather, is like the yolk of an egg, and metabolizes more quickly than the protein-rich egg white, providing energy the body that aids in the digestion of the white (which, in the case of grains, equates to the husk).

If this seems off base, please do let me know - my intent is only to help you maintain the integrity and quality of information on your site.

Thanks for all that you do,

Andy Abang
