This is a great article on 5 fats that don’t make you fat from “Food Matters”:

  1. Coconut Oil
  2. Nuts
  3. avocados
  4. Seeds
  5. Olive Oil

Notice that these good foods are all plant-protein based foods. We need to rethink how we viewed foods in the past. Our bodies need fats especially our brains. Some fats are very bad for you and others are good. Which type are you eating?

Chicken & Eggs Linked to Inflammation

Dr Greger says since we humans are not really carnivores we have evolved from plant-eating apes and have learned to produce all the cholesterol we need. We also can produce inflammation as needed (cut). Cats are carnivores and do not produce inflammation or cholesterol on their own but get it from their food, namely meat. If we eat animal products we get excessive cholesterol and the stuff that produces inflammation. Chicken and eggs are NOT safe. They produce inflammation and cholesterol in us. Inflammation can lead to cancer and cholesterol can lead to heart disease. The only way to completely avoid these excessive intakes is a strict vegan diet. Watch this important video.

Beef Lowers Cholesterol Scam!

The beef industry bought and paid for an ad that claims beef can be GOOD for you. It actually lowers your cholesterol. Dr Greger says what they really did was take a group of people have them eat beef but cut back on poultry so much that their overall cholesterol did go down. This was not because of eating beef but not eating so much poultry. Eating all meat (beef or poultry) will increase cholesterol levels. Faking out a study to make your product look good is wrong. Don’t be fooled America. They are scamming you for your dollars!

If you cut saturated fat (cheese, meat, Crisco, lard any animal products). The chair of nutrition at Harvard pointed this out and stated the cholesterol levels would have dropped even more if the beef was also eliminated and more plant-based protein was consumed.

 

Bacon Confusion

There have been articles online about how Bacon might be good for you. Really! If you believe that I have a few eBay items to sell you. Come on, there might be a substance that has a positive affect on a ring worms life. It might even be true when they do the tests on a mouse and finally humans but there are many more bad things like cholesterol and saturated fat. If someone did a study and found arsenic has life extending substance would you take it? No of course not because it also has other substances that will kill you!

You must be very careful when you view articles and ads these days. They are geared to sell you something and to change any negative attitude you might have on that item. Look at the drug industry and how it is legal to be a billionaire on many people suffering. Yes some drugs we need but the drugs being sold today do more harm than good. Be a smart reader … look closely and ask a very simple question: “Who benefits from this ad or article?”

Many people I know have said to me, “I love bacon and I couldn’t live without it!”. The truth is you can’t live with it!

Dr Greger says it may help Alzheimer’s but it is one of the rare plant foods with saturated fats. Beef and coconut oil have high fat levels and can raise your LDL levels. If you have someone with Alzheimer’s then try using it and see if it helps.  If it doesn’t don’t stay on it as it can increase cholesterol levels. Unlike animal fats coconut oil does NOT spike inflammations after consumption.

Cholesterol emboli

Dr. Greger’s video below, shows how eating more nuts and seeds which contain phytosterols will lower our bodies cholesterol levels. Basically our body takes a certain amount of cholesterol and absorbs it while flushing out the excess as waste. Phytosterols look chemically similar to cholesterol. In fact they fool the body into accepting them in place of cholesterol. They do not have any of the negative reactions that cholesterol has. If the body is absorbing some cholesterol and some phytosterols, there are less amounts of cholesterol being absorbed. More goes to waste.

US Meat Consumption

After World War II Finland started eating a diet heavy in meat and cheese. Their chronic illnesses increased to the highest in the world, even above us in the US. Yesterday I talked about Dr Gregor’s video on CDC study. At the end of the video he summarizes by talking about Finland. Their government actually Paid farmers to be berry farmers instead of dairy farmers. They setup friendly village contests to lower cholesterol levels and weight. Their chronic illness levels drop drastically! Heart Disease dropped 80%! This was by reducing meat consumption. They did not all become vegans but they did reduce animal protein. Tomorrow we will talk about the toxic properties of animal protein. Here is Dr Gregor’s video again.
