… so says Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Forbes Magazine. “Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes,” says Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it’ll have a big impact.” If you just can’t stand never tasting meat again, at least reduce your intake drastically. It is clear to most scientist and doctors that the increased saturated fats most Americans are eating, is the root cause of cancers and many other diseases. We have a choice! Don’t get sick and ask “Why me?”

I have had this video on my BLOG before but it is so important for you to see, I am playing it again. If you are thinking of being a vegetarian, vegan or just cutting back on your meat intake. Dr John Kelly talks about research he has done on public health and nutrition. He specializes in heart disease, diabetes and obesity. He talks about a study of two groups with diabetes. One group ate mostly plant-based foods while the other group ate a diet recommended by American Diabetes Association (ADA). At eleven weeks both groups lowered sugar levels drastically. After eleven weeks the ADA diet leveled off while the plant-based diet continued to drastically lower sugar levels.
