Cool chart although I remember reading that food cravings were 100 percent mental and had no basis in physiological need. Not sure if that was actually accurate.

I can't say anything about normal Cravings but let me tell you a story about my aunt when she was pregnant. She started craving radishes like Non-Stop, so she tells her doctor why am I craving radishes I hate them. Turns out right ashes are high in riboflavin she started taking a supplement and the cravings went away. Also people who are anemic will eat dirt because it has iron in it.

How the fuck can you need "carbon"? It is in every organic compound. Do you mean a specific allotrope of carbon? Should it be graphite, diamond, C60 buckminsterfullerene?

I believe that salt cravings are signifcant. I salt to taste. A sensitive and intuitive i.e. taste mechanism for salt regulation makes sense since it's so important for critical functions like blood volume, but it also does one harm in excessive quantities. Works for horses.

For other things like chromium I seriously doubt there are any such physical cues. Carbon is in every food so I don't know why that is there.

Salty foods = Iodine deficiency.
Most modern salt has had the iodine processed out of it. This creates thyroid dysfunction which causes all sorts of mood disorders and other effects. Likely why we've had generations-long anxiety disorders becoming the new normal.

"Organic Milk"? Sounds like hippy weasel wording.

Er, no. Most modern salt has iodine added to it, hence being labeled "iodized salt". Every little granule of table salt you've ever seen has been iodized. Now, you can get salt without iodine by buying kosher salt, but if it's table salt or sea salt it has iodine. (sea salt has less though)

cool idea but you cant call chicken, cheese, fish, goats milk or cows milk healthy.

Leafy greens also have magnesium

Calories: 41 or 1 cup of Spinach, cooked (180.00 grams) has 156.6 mg of magnesium 39% of your daily magnesium

32.25 grams or 180cals of Pumpkin Seeds have 48% of your daily magnesium


when it comes to cramps magnesium is more important than salt

Chicken, cheese, fish, goats and cows milk have been the staple of the human diet for over 10 millenniums.

Your a new age vegan.

simply being traditional doesn't mean its healthy. There is more than enough evidence that shows that eating those things will cause you harm.

earliest evidence of humans drinking cows milk dates back 6,000 years.

If you look at when the human brain increase in sizes you will see that most of the growth happened before the first used of fire and before the first used of tools. No cooking no hunting but the brain still grew.

The first unquestionable stone tools were made 2.5 million years ago

Claims for the earliest definitive evidence of control of fire by a member of Homo range from 1.7 to 0.2 million years ago


Do you think we need to eat animal products ?
