I do. It is odd, I have just always had a spidey sense about things. Whenever a new study comes out saying a food is bad for you I do the inventory and realize I never eat it. I just don't gravitate to things naturally that are bad for me. I am thinking of like smoked foods / sausage.

I just saw a study that said people with a type "O" blood type tend to die from Trauma more than other blood types. Because "type O" doesn't clot as well as other types. I have always known that / felt that I was more fragile than others with regard to trauma and stayed away from anything that could bang me up. The moment I saw the study it just felt like something I already knew.

Some people may be able to form an accurate hypothesis about what is going-on with themselves healthwise. That sense should be proven via medical-tests.

I have felt odd at times after eating and say to myself, ah-ha, blood-sugar is whacked. Then I actually check my blood-sugar, totally normal.

I have a gut feeling about my health issues. Example: In my early 50's a depression hit me and I believed it was a sluggish thyroid and I went to doctors for 10 yrs and due to their lab numbers they all told me "you are normal, you are fine"...and kept slapping A/D drugs down my throat. So finally I talked to my D.O. and he "knew" he was from the old school, no labs, and gave me a theraputic trial of Armour thyroid and depression lifted after 10 miserable years. I was right and those numbers, blah....

All the above info comes from my gut feeling and it turns out all this came down after menopause which can change so much in our bodies.

I'm not one to run to doctors as I trust my "gut" most of the time so far and soon 80 here....

I was thinking more like I just gravitate naturally to things that are good for me. Like I naturally don't enjoy doing things at night and then a study will come out that says you are at a greater risk of death at night.

Or I naturally don't enjoy doing exercise when I am in the city (where I work) and then a study comes out saying your at a greater risk of lung problems if you are in the city due to pollution.

Finding excuses not to exercise or do things where you could get "banged up" because you think a "study" backs your choices isn't "doing things that are good for you"

I have a general idea of healthy/unhealthy. And many times a food that pops up as unhealthy is already on that list of mine. But foods share unhealthy characteristics so in general I can block of many foods at once based on that research. So I don't consider myself having a sixth sense, but more about being informed and up-to-date by self research.

It's basically awareness (paying attention) and common sense.

Well I'm a perfect example that the type O blood type doesn't clot is not true. I am type O and suffered a stroke from a clot. Furthermore, after lots of testing to find the cause of the clot, the doctors discovered I have a blood disorder that causes clots.

So what happens when a study says eggs / butter / coffee etc. are bad for you, and then another study comes out saying they are actually good for you?

You can find a study on practically any food not being good for you.
