Converted lipids are precursors of Eicosanoids which are signaling molecules and are messengers involved in our immune and inflammation response.

The single most important thing we can do is to bring our fatty acid consumption back to a ratio more near our ancestors'. Long-Chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) and lipid mediators derived from LCPUFAs have critical roles in the regulation of a variety of biological processes including bone metabolism. Higher n-3 FA intake has shown to improved bone turnover markers and bone mineral density (BMD).

There are different mechanisms by which dietary fatty acids affect bone: effect on calcium balance, effect on osteoblastogenesis and osteoblast activity, change of membrane function, decrease in inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). Essential Fatty Acids (FAs), are exactly that Essential (1,2)

Today, most people are eating too many Omega-6 fatty acids and this distorts the Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio. This distortion of polyunsaturated fatty acids, PUFS, may be a factor in the western diet (SAD) that is causing inflammatory diseases. The anti-inflammatory effects of n-3 FAs are well-known.

The modern Omega-6 oils - foods/fats - were only introduced to humans in the past 100 years and they have completely distorted the natural balance of the essential fatty acids we need. ... this site - Fats and from contributors ... Fat and Oil in modern diets | contributor april/2016.

(Key) The bones are Storage and Manufacturing facilities. We can see Dr. Ames - Triage Theory at work when you study bones. Calcium (Ca++) is moved into and out of the blood in response to nutritional requirements. Dr. Seneff - Robbing Joints for Sulfur postulates that the body will Steal sulfur that is stored in the joints to support the far more important Vitamin D - Cholesterol-sulfate requirement. Got Bad Joints?

Omega-3 and Bone Health

Could a diet rich in Omega-3 help with bone health? This is part of the solution as the bone health cycle consists of Vitamins D and K, calcium C++, magnesium Mg++, manganese Mn++ and the body's essential oils working together. Essential oils are also important for the health of our skin.

It’s estimated that nearly half of all Americans over age 50 may be at risk with their bone health. And countless others of all ages are not getting sufficient bone-building nutrients in their diets and the physical activity needed for bones strong enough to last a lifetime.

Vitamin D - and Bone Health

Really a pro-hormone: 1,25 dihydroxy-vitamin D

Vitamin D and bone health for longevity and becoming a centenarian

Vitamin D is actually a "prohormone", which your body produces from cholesterol. This vitamin is known to turn on and off over 2000 genes (est. 10% of our genes), and is currently a major area of study and interest. This vitamin requires you to be proactive, study, read, and become a PhD in your own health. (TGFG & YT, ) In fact, it is so important that your body can make all the vitamin D you need.

The skin (our body's largest organ) has evolved as the body's manufacturing plant and source of vitamin D. Vitamin D with Ca++, and the K's has been shown to improve mortality. Vitamin D Council Also, ... this site - Healthy Skin, your source of Vitamin D.

Vitamin K - and Bone Health

Vitamin K2 and bone health for longevity and becoming a centenarian Vitamin K's are fat soluble vitamins which are not stored in your body. This diagram shows that vitamin K's regulates both calcification of arteries and mineralization of the bones. Greens provide K1 as does a healthy gut microbiome shouild provide K2. (e.g. fermented foods) This Site - Guts, your most important organ. Vitamin K has 3 forms, K1, K2, and K3, each has a metabolic function and works with Vitamin D is calcium control (K2) and blood clotting (K1).

Eating greens and a healthy gut are important sources of vitamin K. Vitamin K: New Evidence for Cancer, Heart Health, and Bone Health | Ron Hunninghake, M.D. september/2011 (10) Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue | Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue. january/2013 (11)

Beware of Unhealthy Fats

Keeping bones healthy and becoming a centenarian
Dr. Stephan Guyenet - A Practical Approach to Omega Fats.

When it comes to fat, it's really crucial to distinguish healthy from the unhealthy ones. The vast majority of fats people eat are actually very unhealthy. As a general rule, avoid all processed and bottled vegetable oils, which are typically high in damaged omega-6 fats.

This Site: Fat and Oil in modern diets, and from contributor ... D. S. McGerk: Fat and Oil in modern diets | contributor, may/16 Prior the WWI and WWII our farm animals were just as healthy as salmon ... What Happened?

Anthropological evidence also suggests that the ratio human beings evolved eating is somewhere around 1:1, while the ratio today is about 16:1. According to Dr. Stephan Guyenet who has done a lot of research on non-industrial populations, typical Omega-6:Omega-3 ratios for non-industrial populations ranged from 4:1 to 1:4.

Minerals - and Bone Health

Vitamin D and bone health for longevity and becoming a centenarian Minerals are from your diet, calcium C++, magnesium Mg++, and manganese Mn++. Calcium is stored in your bones and the body can use it for other metabolic functions. Magnesium, and Manganese need to be gotten daily from your diet.

Bone I'm Alive: provides a solid frame work for the body, protects internal organs, storage of important minerals, e.g. calcium and phosphate, helps to maintain critical mineral balance = homeostasis, red bone marrow consists of: - developing blood cells, i.e. RBCs, WBCs, and platelets - fibroblasts - adipocytes - macrophages.

(Key) The bones are Storage and Manufacturing facilities. We can see Dr. Ames - Triage Theory at work when you study bones. Calcium (Ca++) is moved into and out of the blood in response to nutritional requirements. Dr. Seneff - Robbing Joints for Sulfur postulates that the body will Steal sulfur that is stored in the joints to support the far more important Vitamin D - Cholesterol-sulfate requirement.

According to Dr. Mercola - Bone Health, bone is a living substance that contains blood vessels, nerves, and cells. We know from our own experiences that our bones, joints, and muscles work together to allow us (humans - sometimes dogs) to get up from the couch and go to the refrigerator, a very functional benefit, and then return to the couch (e.g. Couch Potato).

However, if you do not bring back a Salad or Carrot then you are risking malnutrition and your chance to live to 100 years. We know that by triggering the Triage Theory of Functional Medicine we will cause malfunctions in our Metabolism. Ref: Carbohydrates and Longevity | contributor october/2016.

 

Ok - Now What?

are the primary effort of every living animal on this planet. Even plants must seek nutrition and fertile soils with a living microbiome - soil health, to thrive. Humans are no different, as we sometimes forget why we eat. We carry our own microbiome - guts and are seeking Energy for survival, and Nutrition for growth and disease control.

Through anthropological evicence we can determine human eating by analyzing Human Bones. ... Dr. Jeanne Sept - What's Cooking?: The Meat and Potatoes of Human Evolution | july/2013. (40) Dr. Sept explains ... Investigating proto-human subsistence ecology is fundamental to understanding human origins. The earliest archaeological record in East Africa suggests that omnivorous diet and wide-ranging land-use patterns were distinctive proto-human adaptations. Human remains of bone show - Bone Chemistry; you ARE what you eat.

Agent-Based Modeling is a powerful tool for the analysis of the types of dynamic ecological and social processes central to many questions about the subsistence adaptations of Plio-Pleistocene hominins. ABM is used to help evaluate hypotheses about proto-human diet and subsistence. Dr. Sept's team, has created an ABM called HOMINIDS: Hungry Omnivores Moving, Interacting and Nesting in Independent Decision-making Simulations.

Seasonal eating, affects the bones and teeth and can leave a history of our Diet. We have evolved to the limit of our bone structure, and our large Brain requires us to be born with brain bones, not a rigid skull. The birth canal and hip width requires this.

The following actions must be considered:

Simple solution, avoid carbohydrates as they offer no known nutritional benefits. Carbohydrates are however packaged in food source organisms that do provide Longevity Vitamins, Our foods provide Phytonutrients, macronutrients, micronutrients (for critical DNA repair) (R1), Polyphenols, Phytosterols, Flavonoids, Lignans, Antioxidants, and Carotenoids, that do allow life to continue. Ref: 100 richest dietary sources of polyphenols. (Resource 1,2,3)

Certainly avoid processed carbohydrates, fats and oils, and packaged processed foods. A direct result of too many carbohydrates is Insulin Resistance functional manifested as Carbohydrate Intolerance. Dr. Volek discusses his current views on the benefits of a LCHF plan - Health-Promoting Effects of a Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle | july/2016 and this site follows this type of plan with the addition of Dr. Ames' "Triage Theory", hence, ... the Centenarian Diet.
