Our latest products are Biltong and Drourewurs . Biltong is the South African version of beef jerky, but tastier. Drourewurs is a very flavorful South African dried sausage.
Secondary bile acids are probably part of the problem. In order to absorb fat, the liver makes bile, which it stores in the gallbladder. After a meal, the gallbladder sends bile acids into the intestine, where they chemically modify the fats eaten so they can be absorbed. Unfortunately, bacteria in the intestine turn these bile acids into cancer-promoting substances called secondary bile acids. Meats not only contain a substantial amount of fat; they also foster the growth of bacteria that cause carcinogenic secondary bile acids to form.
From my experience with both gout & low-carb dieting, I found that switching from the carb to a high-protein metabolism causes a large increase in urination initially, as the body needs less H2O to process proteins (fats too? not sure). Anyhow, could the connection be as simple as dehydration? I’d be curious if tracking by UA showed correllation between high specific gravity in urine & this man’s gout symptoms….. I find that my daily water intake plays a vastly greater role in my level of gout symptoms than my protein intake (assuming I’m not going wild, of course.) Curious to learn if any conclusion are reached — hope you’ll post a followup if there’s anything new to add.
