FOX TV says eating red meat can seriously increase your risk of heart disease. It also increases risk of cancer and most other chronic illnesses. See the fist video on my BLOG’s VIDEO TAB on the CDC study and what it found out. Is white meat any better? Some studies say NO! It is 85% the fat of red meat. It contains the same cancer causing items as red meat. In light of the overwhelming studies on the health benefits of a vegetarian and vegan diet and the drastic increase in all illnesses in our country … I CHOOSE A VEGETARIAN DIET. What do you choose?

In the Dr Gregor’s video that we have been discussing the few days, he says vegetarians and vegans have significantly lower blood pressure than does meat eaters. I can attest to this since I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, 12 years ago and decided to go vegetarian instead of take drugs. For 12 years I have had low blood pressure. 39 years ago we knew this by a study done at John Hopkins. The study shows in just 12 days of a vegan diet, your blood pressure is reduced by 6%.Is meat really so important to you that you are willing to die for it?

Yesterday we spoke about the dangers of endotoxins from animal protein. Today we look at another video from NutricianFacts.org that show eating a meal of dairy or meat will causes are entire circulatory system to have low-grade inflammation which can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and many other chronic illnesses.They call this the “Leaky Gut Theory” it is real and it takes about 5 hours for our system to recover but in 5 hours we are eating another meal of animal protein. For many Americans they spend most of their lives with low-grade inflammation in their circulatory system. It is no wonder we have so much illness and suffering in this country.

Are Athletes Healthy?

We assume that athletes are healthy because they are strong, able to do amazing things and look thin. In reality they may not be so healthy inside. Healthy muscle and thinness can be had by extreme exercise but it doesn’t guarantee a healthy body. Health needs exercise but diet and a positive mental attitude is needed as well. Dr. Philip Maffetone says athletes can be fit but unhealthy. He says that autopsies preformed on athletes that have had a questionable death show that only 2% have healthy hearts. They are illness wrapped in a cute package. He says we have to stop confusing fitness with healthiness. You can be very fit, able to perform remarkable feats but at the same time be unhealthy. He goes on to say people with a predisposition to heart disease can turn “OFF” the gene that causes it by lifestyle changes (epigenetics). He says that diet, stress and even over training can lead to increased heart disease. Lastly he raises the ethical question, as I have raised in this BLOG, as to who is responsible if we encourage our children or ourselves to have a lifestyle that leads to illness and premature death?

This group of doctors are saying ENOUGH! Modern medicine is NOT making us healthier. It is not curing any diseases. In an article they say “To Tackle Heart Disease, Diet Changes Beat Drugs Any Day”. The article says more and more drugs are being found to have serious side effects. They are not helping diseases like heart disease which is primarily a diet and stress caused disease. It is time for Americans to wake up and take responsibility for their own health. The article states that we can go a long way to illuminating heart disease by illuminating animal based foods from our diet and eating more vegetables, nuts, whole grains and legumes.
