A new drug is being promoted to help boost testosterone in older men. However, a Slate article argues lower testosterone is just a normal part of aging for men. I'm skeptical. I wonder if this happens less dramatically in men with a health diet... (more)
For any other men out there, have you had experience with a yeast infection? Has anyone had success or trouble while going Paleo? What would you recommend? It's been a while since I've been here and since I ate 100 percent paleo. I was doing Raw... (more)
Hi Caveman, Have you tried adding homemade milk kefir to your diet? http://vitamins.lovetoknow.com/Using_Kefir_to_Treat_Candida_Yeast http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kefir Saccharomyces boulardii also seems to work for some people. It's a very... (more)
I read an article on Stronglifts the other day in regards to prisoners who lift and the impressive numbers they put up despite a horrible diet. Then I read an article that said men in the military had higher testosterone numbers than the average... (more)
When I was shaving yesterday I realized that after stopping the usage of deodorant and shampoo my only polyingredient sin remains Gillette, THE shaving cream. Since replacing it for something more simple would be a) cheaper b) (probably) more... (more)
