PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) says not only can you prevent heart decease with a plant-based diet but if you already have it, you can reverse it! 198 patients with cardiovascular decease were put on a diet free of meat, fish, diary and added oils. 89% of the participants followed the diet and 81% improved their disease. In addition these patients lost an average of 18.7 pounds. 22% saw a complete reversal of the disease.
Disease is our bodies way of saying we are providing it with inferior food and air. It can no longer function properly so it begins to break down. Like a city that breaks down, you can decide to change it. Clean it up and revitalize it again. Is your body working with inferior products?

The PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) says obesity among our children is on the rise. A study by National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) indicates that obesity for children ages 2 to 19 is increasing. What are we doing to our children? It is one thing for an adult to live a style that leads to obesity but to do this to our children is wrong! We know that sweets, sugar, salts, fried foods and processed foods (most of what Americans eat) is the cause. Take control back of your shopping and kitchens! Buy more fruits and vegetables, buy organics, Don’t buy processed (frozen, canned or boxed) and stop frying foods. Reduce drastically the amount of fast foods in your children’s diets. If you don’t, they will be burdened with weight problems their entire lives.
Obesity leads to many diseases like High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol issues, Heart disease, cancer and Diabetes. These are the top killers of Americans. Who will protect your children from these killers if you don’t? Having these conditions requires medication which leads to many other side effects.

Dr Greger says “NO!” Watch the informative video below. Americans are bossed with lowering their waist lines. Many things, says Dr Greger, can lower your waistline including: An all diet of twinkies, chemo therapy but he says the goal is not to fit into a thinner casket but live with less weight. We were and still are into calories but calories don’t tell the whole story. A high calorie diet of fried foods vs a high calorie diet of fruits and vegetables are quite different. Yes keeping the waist line down is important but so is health and being alive.
Low carb diets are the rage but are they good for you? The answer seems to be NO! Low carb diets destroy our arteries allowing heart diseases to prevail. Don’t be taken in by the latest fad. Don’t look for quick fixes, they don’t exist. Here are some things to consider:
- Is your diet primarily made up of animal protein (meat, eggs, butter and cheese)? Consuming animal protein of more than 10% of your total calorie intake can lead to cancer and heart disease. – The China Study
- Is your diet primarily made up of processed foods. Eating at chain or fast food restaurants, canned, boxed or frozen foods. Even things that seem healthy like baby carrots are processed and unhealthy. if what you eats grown, it’s good for you.
- Is your diet primarily made up of sweets, fried foods, salty foods and fast foods? If so you are starving your body of much needed nutrients.
We need fats, carbs and nutrients for proper health. That doesn’t mean eat all the fats you want. Start teaching your family what healthy eating is. Show them by your example. You will trim down, be healthier, have better sex and be happier.
