The New England Journal of Medicine says a diet of Olive Oil (Mediterranean) improves health. It lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. Their conclusion was: “Among persons at high cardiovascular risk, a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil or nuts reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events.” Diet has a major impact on us. Some good and some bad. What is your diet doing for you today?

Dr Fuhrman’s position on animal products is clear, consume it and you will get sick. In an article in “Disease Proof – Eat smart & Live happy”, says:
• Low fat diets do NOT help lower cholesterol unless you also eliminate animal fat.
• Red meat is NOT the only problem. Consumption of fish and chicken are associated with colon cancers.
• Chicken has about the same amount of cholesterol as beef.
• 15 different studies showed that consumption of processed meats led to an increase in stomach cancer risk of 15% to 38%.
When will we learn how to really eat healthy?
