Hyping Up Deuterium
Re: Maybe you have a perspective on this question. Depleting deuterium is inverse to Peat’s guidelines according to this scientist: “The Ultimate Guide to Deuterium Depletion.
Yep. Some folks over the years have advocated low deuterium diets and some just the opposite — high deuterium diets.
High deuterium both kills and proliferates cancer cells, according to contradictory tests.

“Because it would take a very large amount of heavy water to replace 25% to 50% of a human being’s body water (water being in turn 50-75% of body weight with heavy water, accidental or intentional poisoning with heavy water is unlikely to the point of practical disregard. Poisoning would require that the victim ingest large amounts of heavy water without significant normal water intake for many days to produce any noticeable toxic effects.”
Since high level wellness and longevity are J-shaped (hormesis), not linear (allopathy), a little dab of deuterium might do a body good.
By the way, according to Ray Peat (May 28, 2021) …
“Everything is always changing and always individual and always changed by context, and so what’s true for one person today where they are will necessarily be somewhat different when they’re in a different place doing different things. It’s always looking at your problems immediately in your context, and to understand those, it helps to look at your history — how you got to where you are and what you want to do to get beyond the present, so all the dimensions have to be flexible, and so your digestive system reflects the things you’ve done in the past. Your whole being is taking form, assimilating things you’ve experienced and intend to experience. So you have to think of yourself as an inventive participant in everything, including your choices of foods.”
