Wheat Belly: Quick and Dirty #3

In view of the many new readers on the Wheat Belly Blog, many of whom have not yet had an opportunity to read the book but are eager to get started, here is the most recently updated Wheat Belly Quick &Dirty summary. It summarizes the essential dietary strategies of the Wheat Belly approach to 1) avoid all products made from high-yield, semi-dwarf wheat that wreak health destruction along with all other grains, and 2) create a diet that is otherwise healthy and appropriate for all members of the family. In particular, I’ve tried to clarify some items that were unclear in previous versions. This is the lifestyle I advise that achieves spectacular reductions in weight, provides relief from joint pain and acid reflux, reduces triglycerides, shoots HDL upward, reduces or eliminates small LDL particles (the #1 cause of heart disease in the U.S.), unravels diabetic/pre-diabetic tendencies, and begins the process of reversing inflammation and autoimmune conditions. The diet starts with the biggest step of all: elimination of wheat and other closely related grains (rye, barley, corn, oats, rice, millet, amaranth, bulgur, sorghum, triticale). But a healthy diet cannot end there, else you and I could eat no grains but fill our calories with soft drinks and jelly beans. So the next step is to limit carbohydrates if your goal is to lose more weight, correct metabolic distortions like high blood sugar and small LDL particles, and reduce potential for conditions like cancer and d...

Culture methods are routinely used for the detection of this organism. Campylobacter-like colonies can be difficult to identify on agar plates overgrown with competitive bacteria. An alternative, simple and rapid confirmation testing without further tedious biochemical tests would be useful. Previously we developed a colony blot...

BayatAbstractLiquid organic scintillators are widely used in radiation measurements. NE213 (or its equivalent, BC-501A) in neutron-gamma discrimination (NGD) and two new scintillators, UGLLT and UGAB, in alpha-beta discrimination are two common examples. In this paper, the NGD capabilities of these three scintillators were studied and their figure-of-merits (FoMs) were measured for comparison. The three different NGD methods used in this study were zero-cross method (ZCM), char...

ConclusionsThe optimal conditions of koji-making in PBP were obtained using RSM. The co-cultivation of A. oryzae and A. niger increases the overall enzyme activities in the culture medium and the FAAs content which would thus have potential application in the PBP industry.

In this study hydrolytic activities of cellulase and xylanase which produce extra-cellularly by isolated actinomycetes under the presence of ChOAc were investigated. ChOAc/biomass ratio (g/g) were set up between 0.0-3.0 for pretreatment followed by hydrolysis using cellulase and xylanase that excreted when actinomycetes were grown up in pretreated bagasse successively. Act-7 was used as inoculum in saccharification, and the optimum of ChOAc/biomass ratio was as identified to be 1, which achieved high saccharification with a yield of reducing sugar 74.58%. Since the cellulase activities reduced to around 30–70% while ...
