Blog moved successfully (for the most part)


My blog (and MD’s) appear to have made the transition to the new server in pretty good shape. During the transfer process a bunch of apostrophes and other punctuation were replaced by bizarre-looking symbols. My new tech guy is going through and finding and replacing with the appropriate marks. As soon as he’s finished, I will rebuild the site, and it should be back to normal.
I’ve noticed that a number of recent comments that I hadn’t yet approved (and some that I had) didn’t make the transfer. Now that the DNS is directed to the new site, I can’t get back into the old site and copy them. If anyone posted a comment and hasn’t seen it up, please repost.
I hope all the server snafus and blog technical problems are behind us. Thanks for your patience.

  1. I’ve let my son borrow my Protein Power book so I can’t check it, but I thought I read something in it about aspartame crossing the blood-brain barrier and “exciting” brain cells to their death….was this in your second edition book?

  2. As I recall we wrote about aspartame in oue second book, the Protein Power LifePlan. One of the constituents of aspartame is aspartic acid, which some researchers feel is an excitotoxin. An excitotoxin allows unrestricted entry of calcium into the brain cells, which makes them fire rapidly until they die, thus the name excito and toxin. Since aspartic acid is a constituent of normal metabolism, I don’t know if the small amount in normal dosages of aspartame would cause a problem.

  3. why do some peoples triglycerides actually go up after exercise? All values after a 2 hour fast are well within normal fasted range, but with exercise, the triglycerides actually go up from 115 to 135, cholesterol and transport proteins don’t change more than 1 percent
    Strenuous exercise markedly increases insulin sensitivity, which usually results in a rapid decrease in insulin levels. A decrease in insulin results in fatty acids being released from the fat cells into the circulation where they are reconstructed as triglycerides giving a little jump in serum triglyceride levels.
