Copper is easily obtainable QUANTITATIVELY, but not so much QUALITATIVELY.
For example, according to A.E. Cass and H.A. Hill (1980), not even counting copper enzymes …
Copper proteins “in Group I contain a single copper ion in an approximately tetrahedral environment with nitrogen and sulphur-containing ligands. Group II proteins have a single copper ion in a square-planar-like arrangement. Group III proteins have two copper ions in close proximity. Group IV consists of multi-copper proteins, composed of sites representative of the other three groups.”
Just because the average Joe owns all the parts that define a Cadillac, will he know how to assemble it?
Re: What foods and other things deplete copper?
Acetic acid can transform copper into verdigris (“a green or greenish-blue poisonous pigment resulting from the action of acetic acid on copper and consisting of one or more basic copper acetates”).
Re: OK, so what does this mean in real life??
Hide your purse whenever you encounter a seller of supplements.
Copper correlates with the cellular compartment, yet is often measured in the extracellular compartment.
That’s the same as visiting a street address at night and looking for the residents in the backyard instead of ringing the doorbell.
At any time of day, if ten people live at a single address, it’s important to know how many of them are in the backyard compared to how many are inside the house … and WHY.
Arsenic and selenium are remedies for anemia (discreetly used!) because they’re in the same cellular compartment (4th Period) as copper and iron.
Phosphorus and sulfur (3rd Period) are not in the same compartment. The same goes for antimony and tellurium (5th Period).
Ideally, it’s better to eat foods according to Growth Zone Geometry and Solar Timing, and let the body manage the physics and chemistry.
Your body’s BIOLOGICAL INHERITANCE — not genetics (6th Period) — has been sussing out all the details for aeons longer than Big Pharma’s beaker boys and dietary supplement touts.

Re: Quercetin is one of the recommended nutrients for Covid or long Covid sufferers.
Bwa Ha Ha!
“Quercetin induces recombinational mutations in cultured cells as detected by DNA fingerprinting ”
Even paranoids have enemies!

Re: Would you call bread a complex carb?
Without a doubt. Starch (glucose + glucose) is a complex carb.

Hi Atom, can you please explain – Starch (glucose + glucose) ?
November 12, 2021 @ 4:18 pm Atom
There’s no fructose in starch, only glucose.
According to Dr. Google …
“Starch is a chain of glucose molecules which are bound together, to form a bigger molecule, which is called a polysaccharide. There are two types of polysaccharide in starch: Amylose — a linear chain of glucose. Amylopectin — a highly branched chain of glucose.”

So when you bake a veg/potato in the oven you are converting it from a starch to what kind of sugar?
November 13, 2021 @ 8:48 pm Atom
According to Dr. Google …
“Caramelization refers to the browning of sugar. It’s the process that causes sugar to acquire a brownish hue when it’s heated. As sugar reaches this temperature, it is broken down into simpler sugars, which then dehydrate and fragment into ketones and aldehydes.”
According to Ray Peat (1994) …
“Glucose is often thought as the most direct source of energy, but other substances are perhaps used even more easily. ‘Ketones’ for example […] are used more easily. […] Short and medium chain fatty acids are used more easily, and it is apparently this fact that accounts for their presence in milk.”
According to Ray Peat (recently) …
“And ketones are good if you get them from fruit or vegetables, such as potatoes but if you have to produce the ketones, they are only produced under stress in the body, and so they are good when you can get them, but it’s hard to make them yourself.”
According to Ray Peat (recently) …
“Anything that stresses you can turn on your production of ketones. And so, it’s better to have some sugar in your diet, so you don’t have the stress that makes the ketones. But if you can get ketones from fruit and potatoes, for example, they’re fine.”
Pyro-dextrinization is NOT approved by Ray Peat.
He doesn’t seem to realize that the caramelization of the potato is what produces the ketones.
In at least one interview, he associated caramelization with acrylamide and cancer.

Re: Is there any solution for the people hypersensitive to the moon phases? Especially anxiety around lunar eclipses.
If you don’t have a Red Cognitive Shock, expose yourself to red light during the eclipse.
If there IS a trauma with red, sleep or rest till the eclipse is over.

My high school buddy Frank Broeske beat on his chest when he was falling to the floor with a heart attack at 28 years old.
He revived himself and changed his diet.

Many antioxidants are love offerings from plants.
They say, “I love you so much, I made these wonderful nutrients for you SO YOU COULD KILL ME AND MY CHILDREN by gobbling me up!”

Hi o atom. To funny, is this like mind hacking?
November 12, 2021 @ 4:19 pm Atom
Nope. Mind Hacking is all about finding Cognitive Trigger Events via Body Language … and resolving them when possible.
Many people won’t let go of their traumas because they define themselves by them.

What’s your preferred food source of magnesium? Do you take any supplemental magnesium?
I’ve been researching supplementing magnesium bicarbonate, but I would prefer to get my magnesium from a food source. Look forward to hearing back from you, thanks!
November 15, 2021 @ 10:23 pm Atom
Magnesium is so easy to “get” in whole food (especially when eating according to circadian rhythms and forest canopy geometry), it’s not worth writing out the long list.
The QUALITATIVE UTILIZATION of magnesium — or any other atomic element — is essential information.
Knowing the chemical composition of an automobile does not make it USABLE.
Supplement sellers won’t tell you that.
How HIGH do you want your magnesium to go? Brain? Lungs? Gut? Prostate?
That’s determined by circadian rhythms and geometric body resonance.
How DEEP do you want your magnesium to go? Blood plasma? Cytoplasm? Organelles? Genes?
That’s determined by the Periodic Table of the Elements.
It seems complicated, but once you learn the SIMPLE KEYS, you’ll know how totally stoked Jean-François Champollion was the moment after he translated the Rosetta Stone.
Most so-called nutritionists (mainstream or holistic) have pieces of the puzzle but don’t see the entire picture.
Here’s a clue. Magnesium absorbs poorly or not at all without sodium chloride.
It’s no coincidence that magnesium sits between sodium and chlorine in the Third Period of the Table of the Elements.

Does Malic Acid do the same as Acetic acid to copper in the body? Thinking about the apple cider vinegar regiment in the health food industry.
November 26, 2021 @ 4:29 pm Atom
Acidic acid in the mouth is different than the acetic acid and malic acid formed inside the body.
As long as apple cider viengar is thoroughly diluted, there are no adverse issues when taking it at midday or evening.
