If we disregard the real genetic causes that cause no more than 5% of deaths, the real reason for most of our chronic diseases and the high mortality rate is an evolutionary incongruent diet (high amount of animal product in diet) and lifestyle. In most cases, disease is a choice.
Most of our chronic diseases are caused by a non-evolutionary congruent diet (high amounts of animal products). In the top 10 leading causes of death, most are caused by our life choices. The data is alarming. It is beyond that.
The higher the overall inflammation the greater the damage done to the DNA. The greater the damage to DNA the shorter the life and the greater the chance of disease. Almost all of the chronic diseases are associated with chronic inflammation from cancer, to autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, basically most of the diseases ever tested.
Our body has evolved to receive a burst of protective antioxidants anytime we eat but there are not present in animal foods.
Our natural diet is a diet that our hominin ancestors were eating, not anatomically modern humans in the Stone age. As a consequence of the diet shift that is driven by the use of technology from starch-based to a mostly animal product-dominated Western type of diet, we will have to deal with an increase in disease risk due to maladaptation. It is not a bad genetic that gives us disease and that is a big open secret. Refined calories and animal products are not congruent with our biology.
Even dead non-probiotic bacteria do count as toxins. One of the leading causes of hundreds of studies that display enlarged inflammation from animal foods, but not from most plant foods is a consequence of a toxic load of dead bacteria endotoxins in animal products.
There are programs of dieting that are designed to help reduce inflammation and overall body toxicity that are backed by science. They are all based on a natural whole food plant-based diet with a low level of environmental toxin exposure.
There are only two vitamins that are not produced by plants. One is vitamin D that we produce ourselves during sunlight exposure and the other would-be vitamin B12. If you are a vegan it is only these two vitamins that you will have to supplement. Vitamin D deficiency is correlated with an increase in mortality rate and on top of that it is correlated with diseases that affect the quality of life.
There is no heart disease or cancer or diabetes in undeveloped rural communities in the world with starch-based vegan diets. In Guizhou county, there was no single recorded coronary artery disease death from 246,000 men over a period of 3 years. There is nothing natural about heart disease. Number one terrorist killer in the west.
Do we think caffeine is something good for our brain or bad or neutral?
What does the actual caffeine do?
Somehow we all believe that one glass of wine is not all that bad and can actually be good and health-promoting because of all of the antioxidants from the grapes. People are not aware that alcohol does other things than “just” killing our brain cells or stressing our liver. It is a genotoxic, cancerous, pro-inflammatory mutagen.
There is no known animal in nature except modern humans that grills meat. When we heat amino acids (building blocks of protein) in the presence of creatine and monosaccharide sugars, they have a reaction and amino acids lose their molecular form. Our body does not recognize them as different, and this causes mutations to DNA.
Go Vegan? Review of Science Book Series. The ultimate guide to your health and longevity.
Marketed as a wonder of olive oil that had nothing to do with oil of any sort whatsoever except in the measure that it can replace even worse choices like a regular saturated fat like butter and lard. When we talk about the Mediterranean diet in the scientific field, what is implied is the diet on the island of Crete in the post World War 2 era. Also, what comes next is a big question: Why was heart disease rare in the Mediterranean? Meaning on the island of Crete after WW2.
Although top predatory fish is a significant source of exposure, from all known food sources rice absorbs the highest concentration among all commonly eaten foods. It contains between 10 to 20 times of arsenic concentration than other cereal crops.
As the level of fat in the bloodstream rises the ability of the body to clear sugar drops. The problem is that we are not designed to cope well with sizable saturated fat intake at a single sitting like carnivorous animals. They can eat to the extreme and we cannot.
On average pregnant woman is polluted with around 35 different chemicals including both banned and contemporary contaminants. Chemical cocktail levels of many of these chemicals were comparable to the levels that can have fetal adverse effects.
An abundance of nutrients in coastal areas created by runoff filled with synthetic fertilizers from farmland leads to excessive algal blooms. Algae blooms are dangerous. Microalgae create and excrete some of the most potent neurotoxins known to man.
Man-made sources of EMF radiation such as power grids, mobile phones, computers, Wi-Fi routers, TVs, microwave ovens, radar, and radio transmitters provide continuous low-level radiation. The situation can only get worse.
Without vitamin D level optimization we will suffer from a wide range of health issues even if we don’t have a directly visible bone disease. Osteoporosis starts long before and lasts for a long time until the visible effects can be diagnosed.
What are the risk factors associated with obesity? Animals eat impulsively because they are conditioned to do it for survival. For all life on the planet Earth, food is not a choice. It is a daytime job of survival. The hardest thing for an animal in the wilderness is to gain weight. Hardest thing for us is to lose it.
