I’ve put this one off much too long. If I don’t write it now, I won’t get it in for March. At least, writing it on the last day of March, I can comment on some titles more. First, here are the titles I bought this month:
K2 is a vitamin that helps direct the placement of calcium, placing it in the bones and keeping it out of the arteries. I first learned about it from authors on vitamin D. Apparently, the symptoms of vitamin K2 deficiency and vitamin D toxicity are the same, and if you take K2 with D, you can take more D without the toxicity and benefit more from larger doses. This author also recommends taking vitamin A with D and K2, these all being fat-soluble vitamins that complement each other.
This is a book on aging. I have recently been reading several books on aging, which I’ll write about more later, and from reading those books, I recognized the word telomere in the title of this book. A telomere is something at the end of DNA, and according to the theory in this book, aging happens as telomeres get shorter, which they do when the DNA copies itself. The author claims that a substance called telomerase can slow down the shortening of telomeres, which would slow down aging.
This is written by Dr. Garth Davis, a bariatric (weight-loss) surgeon, who, at 35, was in lousy shape and felt like a hypocrite about it, given that his job was to help people get into shape. He improved his health by switching to a vegan diet, and this book goes over several scientific studies that reveal the benefits of eating a plant-based diet and the dangers of eating meat and other animal products.
This is an interesting auto-biographical account of a remote viewer who claims to have remote viewed aliens on the moon. While I’m a skeptic, I’m the kind that takes an interest in claims of the paranormal. Without proof, I remain unconvinced of paranormal claims, but I also don’t dismiss them out of hand.
I frequently read books on the Bible. This one is on the mythology behind Genesis, and it is co-written by Robert Graves, who has written some other books on mythology and also I, Claudius, which I once saw on television.
I already bought this one in 2014. I sometimes buy books faster than I can read them, and this is one I haven’t read yet.
And here are some other titles I downloaded samples of:
A book on SETI.
Since I sometimes make videos for my YouTube channels, this could be useful.
Different experts write about making the most of your talents.
Different experts write about being an entrepreneur.
Since I do have this blog plus some YouTube channels and another website, there could be something useful in here.
A reference book on staying healthy without prescription drugs.
Okay, I have only a few hours to check out some of the other titles I haven’t bought.
