    OK, what about semi-dried plums i.e. prunes?

    Hairdresser story reminded me of Victor Davis Hanson, a farmer in California who wrote a book on Greek history. None of the other historians knew anything about farming, so he had a great advantage writing about just that topic.

    I have noticed in the cited article that the dried plum diet consists on 25% w/w dried plum. I wonder if this is sustainable for humans without having other side effects.

    “I wonder if this is sustainable for humans without having other side effects.” I suspect you’re thinking more of bottom effects.

    Exactly. I suppose the authors would not mention this kind of effect in mice. To me, this is one more example of ill-designed mouse experiments.
