05 – Germ-free means Cyst-free

Hey Folks! I hope you are getting settled in with the bulletproof diet and you have made your appointment for getting your data.

Today I am going to share one of my favorite research papers with you. In this study from 1997, scientists tested an interesting theory for PKD on two groups of PKD-mice. They fed one group of mice the standard chow, and the other group got a sterilized alternative, and were raised in a germ-free cage. And, you guessed it, the second group of mice essentially didn’t develop ANY cysts. ๐Ÿ™‚

So: the second group of mice never had to deal with any germs, bacteria, mold-toxins, viruses and fungi, so they did not have cysts, although they had PKD. Interesting stuff, right? This is a citation from the study: “raising genetically cystic mice in a germ-free environment essentially eliminated cystogenesis and increased survivorship to nearly 100%” And this should be enough for all of us to really clean up our diets.

To not eat old or mushy fruits or vegetables with brown spots on them. To not eat pesticide laden meat from factory farming. And to drink really clean water without fluoride or medication residue. Getting a filter is a really, really good idea. Because all this stuff gets stored in cysts- and will make them grow larger.

What about you? Are you eating clean? ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day, and heal well!
