#34: Calcium, Phosphate, Authoritarianism, Eugenics & CIA Spymaster Allen Dulles with Ray Peat

00:55 — "The newsletter is available by email now, and it's $28 US which can be paid through PayPal, at raypeatsnewsletter@gmail.com." Ray Peat
01:27 — "It is extremely important to realize that calcium deposits in soft tissues become worse when the diet is low in calcium." Lets Eat Right to Keep Fit by Adelle Davis (1970) http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/calcium.shtml
03:06 — Can we see living structure in a cell? By Gilbert Ling https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25854101
03:22 — The calcium paradox of essential hypertension by David McCarron https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3544831

05:43 — Is it a natural phenomenon for a cell to disorder its water?
05:54 — What retains water in living cells? By Gilbert Ling https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1082166
06:51 — "On page 95 of my first book, 'A Physical Theory of the Living State; the Association Induction Hypothesis' you will discover what I call the Principle of Additivity. This Principle suggests that any agent that binds onto the cell proteins will affect the entire protein involved. It is the reach and strength of binding that distinguish a cardinal adsorbent. As an example, each ATP causes the binding of some 8000 water molecules on an appropriate protein molecule. So whether carbon dioxide can be called a cardinal adsorbent is a question that must await more experimental study." Ling (2014)
07:08 — Ray on Gilbert Ling's "lactate paradox" of high altitude experiment (CO2 prevents full depolarization)
07:56 — "In the normal resting state, a cell is 'polarized.' In the depolarized state, a cell is vulnerable, and if it is too frequently depolarized, it can be damaged or killed in the process called 'excitotoxicity,' and other related degenerative processes. Cancer cells are chronically 'depolarized,' and this is related to their low-efficiency metabolism." Lungs, shock, inflammation, and aging by Ray Peat (2002)
08:33 — Why does carbohydrate produce more carbon dioxide than fat?
09:38 — "Mg or K is needed to form the phosphorylated ATPase that then upon exposure to Ca or Na transfers a phosphate to ADP, generating ATP. Mg helps to retain and generate ATP." Andrew Kim
09:39 — "It [magnesium] is the basic protective calcium blocker." Calcium and Disease by Ray Peat (2009)
10:40 — The breakdown of ATP to ADP increases intracellular phosphate. Does something similar happen when a person eats too much phosphate?
10:55 — "In addition, dietary fructose reduces plasma phosphate levels by 30 to 50%…" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11036473
11:26 — Ray on "the high-energy phosphate bond"
12:49 — How is phosphate deenergizing the cell?
14:16 — Is phosphate a cell depolarizer?
14:23 — Ray describes the death of a cell
15:48 — "In the body, as in a chain, the weakest link breaks down under stress although all parts are equally exposed to it.” Stress Without Distress by Hans Selye (1974)
16:38 — "Our brain grows into our culture, and the culture lives in our nervous system." Ray Peat (2009)
16:44 — "It is too often not realized that culture itself is an adaptive tool, one of whose main functions is to make the physiological emergencies come less and less often.” Abraham Maslow (1943)

20:22 — "...A person's present-orientedness or, in economic terms, its high degree of time preference (which is highly correlated with low intelligence, and both of which appear to have a common genetic basis)." "In every society of any degree of complexity, specific individuals quickly acquire elite status as a result of having diverse talents. Owing to achievements of superior wealth, wisdom, bravery, or a combination thereof, particular individuals command respect, and their opinions and judgments possess natural authority." Hans-Hermann Hoppe (2007)
20:42 — Ray on Murray Buchan as a good libertarian compared to the Koch-type
20:51 — "Libertarianism in the US has been primarily a decorative veneer for advocacy of transferring government power entirely to the big corporations, but a few people like Justin Raimondo [antiwar.com] seem to be creating a more authentic libertarianism—he’s associated with the Randolph Bourne Institute, and policies very different from the Cato Institute/Koch brothers’." Ray Peat (2017)
21:15 — Danny doubts the usefulness of "the non-aggression principle" in light of Hans Selye's work on stress and survival
21:43 — "Estrogen, hyperventilation, lactate, etc., increase serotonin, and I think it’s serotonin that directly increases PTH, and then PTH increases NO." Ray Peat (2017)
22:23 — "...Serotonin stimulates the secretion of prolactin.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23506438 "...prolactin could be a mirror of serotonin in the brain." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26542707 "...serotonin could be one of the factors regulating PTH secretion and/or contributing to PTH hypersecretion..." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6255002

26:51 — "Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society."

36:02 — Are vitamin D and calcium necessary for thyroid and the other steroids to work?
37:43 — Clarifications on the progesterone Progest-E product by Kenogen
38:49 — What could cause a strange reaction to progesterone? "Have you had a blood test for vitamin D and TSH [thyroid function]? High estrogen increases the conversion of progesterone to the 5- metabolite, but thyroid and progesterone lower estrogen, preventing the exaggeration of that pathway. A vitamin D deficiency disturbs many hormones, and can cause breast pain.” Ray Peat on breast pain while using progesterone (2018)
39:19 — "The effects of estrogen and progesterone are systemically opposed to each other—estrogen excites, progesterone calms, estrogen cools, progesterone heats, estrogen increases nitric oxide, progesterone lowers it, etc." Ray Peat (2017)
41:20 — Ray recalls a woman with severe hyperestrogenemia who didn’t respond to 400 milligrams of progesterone who likely needed to work on the liver to restore balance
