Do you eat healthy? Really? Check your refrigerator, freezer and pantry! How many frozen food items, boxes, cans and bags are there? These are all processed foods. Each of these contain either preservatives, sugars, fats or salt. Some contain multiple of these and some contain all of them. Processed sugar leads to diabetes and weight issues. It can also feed cancers. Salts lead to high blood pressure issues. Remember you get a lot more salt from processed foods (without any taste of salt) than you do from a salt shaker. Then you probably add salt for taste. Fats are in two categories good fats like in avocados and bad fats like saturated fats. Frying is bad in two ways you get saturated fats and the temperature causes fats to burn which is carcinogenic. Preservatives kill bacteria but they also kill our cells which causes problems within us. All life has similar cell structure. If it can kill bacteria or bugs it can kill your cells. You may not drop over dead but it is affecting your body.
Eat really healthy. If it grows and is organic eat it! If you have to eat meat, eat organic fed meats and limit the amount of meat, eggs, milk and cheese you eat.

The PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) post new research on cancer and recommendations for avoiding it. The recommendations are pretty much what this BLOG is about. Avoid alcohol, dairy, red and processed meats and meats cooked at a high temperature. On the positive side they recommend eating many more vegetables and fruits. The question of “White” meats was not addressed. I believe they are dangerous as well since they contain 85% of the saturated fats of red meats. If you can’t give up meat totally, cut way back on it! Eat more plant based foods. Learn new recipes that use plants instead of meat. Eat fruits for desserts instead of sugary foods.
The evil in our diets are Saturated Fats, processed Sugars, and Salt! Americans consume way too much of these three evils. The result is a population that is mostly sick. Cure yourself and your families by changing your diet.

As a vegetarian, I am always asked “Where do you get your protein?”. All food is made of protein! Every cell in every animal, vegetable and fruit are made of protein. A recent study, as reported by Dr Greger in his video below, shows that all Americans, carnivores, vegetarians and vegens get more protein than they need on a daily basis. Too much protein can be toxic and affect the kidneys and liver. So put to rest this question once and for all. We are all getting enough protein in our diets.
Dr Greger asks a more important question, “Where do you get your fiber?”. 97% of Americans are DEFICIENT in fiber! This is a major concern to your health. Some Americans think that steak gives them fiber. This is false. By definition, fiber ONLY comes from plant foods. If you are not eating enough vegetables and fruits, you are NOT getting enough fiber!
What are you eating?

Eating unhealthy have an 8 times better chance of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Dr Greger says heating oils hot to fry foods like donuts, french fries and fried fish or chicken is carcinogenic. Watch the video below. More and more the studies show eating has the largest impact on our health. You say but everyone eats french fries and fried fish or chicken right? Yes and most people are getting cancer! If you don’t care about health issues, eat away. If you do care about the long-term effects on your health and your family’s health, change your eating habits. If you get out of the group of “everyone eats french fries and fried fish or chicken” you can also get out of the group of “Everyone gets cancer”!

One in every eight woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer. That is sad but the really sad thing is it can be prevented with a dietary change. Dr Greger says that broccoli, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and other plant-based foods can reduce the risk. He says new studies show a link between cholesterol and breast cancer. The cholesterol fat feeds the cancer and allows it to grow. the study shows a 17% increase in cancer risk for women with cholesterol over 240 as opposed to those under 160. This may be why cholesterol drops in cancer patients. The cancer is eating it up.
Eggs are a major source of cholesterol and fat. All animal protein foods contain this as well (cheese, milk, meat and butter). We have reported on studies that show meat can turn ON/OFF cancer (The China Study and others see my book). Once cancer is turned ON, cholesterol and fat feed it. This allows it to grow rapidly out of control. Feed your body correctly and you will enjoy good health!
