In this video, Marin Veldic, M.D., psychiatrist at Mayo Clinic, discusses the role of epigenetics in mood disorders.This is one of the fastest growing fields of psychiatry. By comparing the blood of patients with bipolar disorder to those of normal patients, they can see epigenetic changes that may be causing depression and mood swings. Things like alcohol, smoking and eating binges can adversely affect your epigenetics and cause genes to activate that cause a bipolar condition.

My neighbor Bob gave me an ad from his newspaper for a Health medical center. The ad showed a man lying on a couch with a burger in one hand probably watching TV. It said “See you soon?” then “In a way, that’s up to you.” Clearly here is one clinic equating disease and health care with diet and exercise. We need more like this. A lot more!

The Mayo Clinic’s Take on Meat

The Mayo Clinic recently stated “You can eat healthfully without spending a lot. One way to achieve healthy savings is to serve meat less often.” They also stated “A plant-based diet, which emphasizes fruits and vegetables, grains, beans and legumes, and nuts, is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. And people who eat only plant-based foods — aka, vegetarians — generally eat fewer calories and less fat, weigh less, and have lower cholesterol levels than do non-vegetarians.

Just eating less meat has a protective effect. A National Cancer Institute study of 500,000 people found that those who ate 4 ounces (114 grams) of red meat or more daily were 30 percent more likely to die of any cause over 10 years than were those who consumed less. Sausage, luncheon meats and other processed meats also increased the risk. Those who ate mostly poultry or fish had a lower risk of death.

They say that adults need only 10%-15% of their total calories to be from protein. Since all living items contain protein, we get plenty without eating meat.
