Thread: Will this product be available and affordable anytime soon?

    Default Will this product be available and affordable anytime soon?

    Hi:

    The below link describes a health product I'm looking for. How long
    until such becomes available for $1-per-package?

    http://groups.google.com/group/healt...ble?hl=en&lnk=

    I seriously wouldn't mind living off that stuff. Along with at least
    30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise [preceded by warm-up and
    stretch exercises], this would greatly increase the chances of living
    a long, healthy life.


    Thanks,

    Green Xenon

    P.S. Feel free to join that group

    You wrote "If only this product existed and was affordable, I’d have no
    problem living solely off it. "

    My guess is that such food would necessarily be so highly processed that
    you wouldn't live long at all.

    Why would the processing decrease the health of the food?

    Sounds like he's looking for packaged rabbit-cud or something of that
    nature.

    There actually is a "chow" made for Primates. Both Purina and Zupreem
    make one:

    http://www.angryman.ca/monkey.html

    Might consider stocking a storm shelter with some, but I'd not want to
    live on it. <g>

    I sometimes get monkey biscuits for my cockatoo. She likes them.

    Most nutritionists agree that natural food is better for long-term
    health than processed food. Humans began to eat processed food only in
    the last few thousand years. Our digestive systems' evolution occurred
    mostly before that.

    Depends. In this case of my hypothetical product, the processing
    removes only undesirable substances.

    The whole history of processing foods shows that as we take out the
    unnecessary stuff, like bran, then we discover that we have removed
    things that are necessary. Lots of processing removed or destroyed
    vitamins, but since we hadn't discovered them yet, we didn't miss them
    until people started developing vitamin deficiencies. Once we removed
    all the unnecessary stuff and got food down to it's basic sugar, fat and
    protein, we found out that those weren't sufficient for good health.

    In my case, the opposite would be done. Keep the bran, but remove the
    starches/sugars.

    What if the processing does not remove/damage vitamins or other
    nutrients [as in the case of my hypothetical product]?

    From what you're saying, the necessary stuff was removed.

    But nobody at the time knew it was necessary. We don't know much now
    either. A recent report suggests that foods made from white (i.e.,
    processed) flour are words for your constitution than saturated fat
    (which turns out to be not that bad after all.)

    Your hypothetical product reminds me of your plan to record a CD's worth
    of music in a fraction of a bit. Your faith in your understanding of how
    things work is hardly justified.

    My hypothetical product has all the digestible-starches [i.e. "whites"
    of the grains] removed.

    And what else that you don't know about? Actually, what you don't know
    isn't nearly as bad for you as the things you think you know but really
    don't. You once thought you knew how to sample a signal, remember?

    What if the removal process only removes the sugars, digestible
    starches, saturated fats, and other substances [mentioned in the
    welcome message of my group] not beneficial for health?

    Which digestible starches, for example, are beneficial and which are
    not? Does an individual's genetic makeup matter, or is there a universal
    prescription? Here's one last thing for you to think about: if the
    "white" of wheat grains is removed, what is left? Whole wheat wouldn't
    be whole without it.

    No digestible starch is beneficial. All of them are just empty
    calories.

    Usually the latter.
