Web MD says a vegetarian diet may cut the risk of heart disease. A new study shows the hospitalization due to heart disease is down by a third for those following a vegetarian diet over meat and fish eaters. Heart disease is the largest killer of humans in developed countries. You don’t have to give in to this disease, you can fight it! A major weapon in fighting it is DIET. This may be due in part to lower cholesterol in vegetarian diets and higher saturated fats in meat eaters diets. Choose your food well. It may save your life or a loved ones. Diet, lack of exercise, smoking and stress are a fatal attraction.

My good friend and ex business partner David sent me another great article on vegetarian living. It is from Oxford and is titled “Vegetarianism can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to one-third” . This was a study of true vegetarians that do not eat any meat or fish. This is the largest study on this topic ever done in the UK. Diet does cause either good health or bad health. It’s your choice as to what you eat. Universities all over the world are doing studies that prove this. I spoke of the CDC study that shoes vegetarian and vegan diets eliminate and in some cases cures almost all major diseases Americans get. Eat well and live well!

When everyone is unaware of diet-health issues, we grow sicker as a nation.

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says a low-fat vegetarian diet prevents and can reverse heart disease. unfortunately most cardiologists are unaware of this and those that know seldom recommend it to their patients. We need to get the knowledge of vegetarian and vegan diets out there. Let people decide for themselves. If you don’t want to follow such a diet and get a chronic disease, at least it was your decision. So many people are totally unaware of the research and their doctors are as well. We as a nation smoked until marketing showed the damage of smoking. We now need to market the damage of bad diet on our lives.

Meat increases risk of Diabetes

The AARP says The findings, published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that:
* A two-ounce daily serving of processed meat (one hot dog or sausage, two slices of bacon, deli meats) was associated with a 51 percent increased risk of diabetes.
* A four-ounce daily serving (the size of deck of cards) of red meat, like steak, hamburger, pork or lamb, was associated with a 20 percent increased risk of diabetes.
* Among those who ate red meat daily, substituting one serving of meat for a serving of whole grains reduced the risk of diabetes by 23 percent; replacing a serving of meats with nuts resulted in a 21 percent lower risk; and choosing a serving of low-fat yogurt or another low-fat dairy protein over red meat daily decreased the risk by 17 percent.
Substituting meat for nuts or fruits and vegetables can have a drastic reduction on the risk of serious disease. Eat what you want but don’t say “Why me?” when you get sick. We all have a choice, make yours carefully.
