The introduction started out by saying, "If you go with the flow in the US, you will eventually become obese". Eating is American's biggest cause of death. We think we know more about nutrition now than ever before....how can that be.....we are sicker now than ever before in American history.
The American diet used to consist of mainly vegetables, fruits and grains. Meat and dairy were on the plates of very affluent people, most people could not afford meat. Suddenly, at the beginning of the 20th century, meat and dairy became more affordable....here is where the trouble began. Animals leave us with cholesterol in our arteries each and every time we eat them. Our bodies produce cholesterol, so how much more do we require? ZERO....we do not need to ingest any further cholesterol.
People truly believe they are eating a healthy diet by switching from beef and eating lots of chicken and fish. This is a HUGE myth...chicken has just as much cholesterol as beef....chicken is not a "health food"! Now, this is where I lose people because they are thinking, "What's left to eat?" At this point, many people just don't want to hear any more...they don't want to BELIEVE this is the case.
Well, it's the pure and simple truth...the reason we are so sick in today's society is because EATING HAS BECOME THE BIGGEST CAUSE OF DEATH in America!! According to the surgeon general, 2 out of every 3 Americans DIE from their eating habits. We are the fattest nation on the planet with the majority of our school aged children having a high cholesterol level. Statistics show 40% of the population die prematurely due to our #1 Killer--HEART DISEASE. Really, we should be saying the STANDARD AMERICAN DIET is the #1 KILLER DISEASE in America today. Heart disease and Cancer are the two major killers---after YEARS of research, the CAUSE of these 2 life-threatening illnesses--our diets!
Did you know each and every one of us have cancer cells in our bodies? But, the CURE for cancer is inside of us. This is a well-known fact! The cure--our immune system. When our immune systems are functioning at optimal levels, they naturally kill off these cancer cells---everyday. We must have STRONG immune systems...how do we achieve this? We achieve this by eating a WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED DIET. Cancer cells do not just fade away....we must give our immune systems ammunition to fight these cancer cells...the ammunition is extremely simple to get...eat from the plant kingdom. When we eat meat and dairy, we are feeding these cancer cells, we are giving the cancer cells ammunition and leaving our immune system extremely weak. Once this happens, the cancer cells become stronger and stronger, and multiple quickly....our immune system is too overwhelmed to handle this and now we are in serious danger.
We are brain-washed into thinking we must have animal products....milk builds strong bones---this is the BIGGEST MYTH we have. The dairy industry will lead us to believe we have a calcium deficient diet. This is an out and out LIE. No one should be consuming milk from a cow--NO ONE!!! Milk feeds cancer cells, creates more cholesterol in our arteries, and CAUSES BONE LOSS. When we take in dairy products, our bodies leach the calcium and phosphorus out of our bones to neutralize all this protein...end result, WEAK BONES. The more dairy you take in, the more our calcium stores will be taken from our bones. The fact is eating meat and dairy will weaken our bodies causing premature death....this is a well established fact. We do not need protein from animal products...the protein from the plant kingdom is much more superior!
Researchers are telling us: Animal based diets FEED cancer cells...Plant based diets FEED the immune system. Of course, plant based diets will also "CURE" heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, strokes, along with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, arthritis, fibromyalgia, GI symptoms....you name it, a plant-based diet can FIX IT! Unfortunately the pharmaceutical companies are extremely wealthy....pills are advertised instead of a plant-based diet. Who will profit from advertising vegetables and fruits? Certainly not the pharmaceutical companies....
Our physicians just are not educated in nutrition...that's another plain and simple fact. Look around, we are overweight and undernourished. We have to CHANGE....what we are currently doing IS NOT WORKING. If our current way of life was healthy, we would NOT be in the situation we are in.
We can take control and turn this around....NO ONE should have to suffer the effects of heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, etc. NO ONE.
Anyone ready for a change? I would be more than happy to help anyone that wants to turn their health around...just let me know....it's much easier than you think!
