Known associations with dairy consumption are ovarian cancer, cataract, diabetes type 1, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, headaches, hyperactivity (add, ADHD), allergy, congestion, asthma and respiratory problems, early arteriosclerosis from oxidized cholesterol and cardiac arterial disease, a dec of the intelligence, pimples, infertility, bedwetting, osteoporosis, and IGF 1 related diseases. In cow’s milk are bacteria, viruses, prions, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and other toxins and heavy metals.
Low levels of chronic metabolic acidosis is a common phenomenon in the Western world. Most people that eat the standard American diet are in a state of chronic acidosis and are not aware of it.
Scarcity is the rule of protein in nature. In evolutionary terms, anthropologists have proven that hominins lived an average of 15 to 25 grams of protein a day. In the modern western type of high-protein diet we would consume that amount for breakfast only.
When anthropologist studies showed that hominins lived on average of 15 to 20 grams of protein a day there was a so-called a “Great protein fiasco” back in the 1970s.
Processing of food (home oil extraction) can also be used in reverse for increasing the nutritional density and profile of the food.
WHO dietary guiines recommend a diet low in saturated fat (animal protein), sugar, and salt and high in fruit and vegetables as a requirement to tackle the epidemic rise of chronic diseases worldwide.
Artificial sweeteners are unnatural synthetic chemicals so we have to lo into available science to understand the potential health effects that these chemicals might have.
Children consume around a quarter of their total calorie needs from just refine sugar. If you add fat, flower and the rest of nutrition-deprived processed foods it becomes a complete nightmare. The nightmare that ends in compulsive eating, obesity, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, cancer, cardiovascular problems, and all of the diseases of affluence is a list like a never-ending story.
After reading a little about the history and the way companies no matter if they are food, drug, or something third conduct business, you should understand that these companies and the people that run them do not care about you. They care about marketing their products to you, but not about you. They will do…
Nutritional science had explained all of the corelations regarding diseases of affluence and animal food consumption decades ago. In 1977 the push for a change of Dietary Guiines (McGovern Report) to plant-based vegan one had been introduced to U.S. Congress.
Vitamin D is not a vitamin. It is a prohormone, a steroid with a hormone-like activity that regulates about 3% of the human genome from calcium metabolism, muscular function, immune system regulation, and many functions that are essential for life.
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.
Seventh-day Adventists have a measurable lower risk than other Americans for most of the Western diseases. For last 100 years the Seventh-day Adventist Church had been promoting health behaviors that have become the regular part of daily living. These include not sming, eating a plant-based diet, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy body weight. Over the past 40 years, two Adventist health studies have been conducted involving 22,940 and 34,000 Californian Adventists.
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.
We are maladapted to our habitat. We have evolutionary evolved and conditioned processes that force us to act in an evolutionary protective manner such as overeating on food. For all life on the planet Earth, food is not a choice. The hardest thing for an animal in the wilderness is to gain weight. The hardest thing for us is to lose it.
Our physiology evolved from small plant-eating mammals for a time span of 60 million years, and we had been using a hunting strategy for 200,000 years. There is a belief that besides foraging, hunting is also a natural human activity and that our natural diet is congruent with both hunting and foraging. We must understand the difference between these two. These are two completely different diets.
Meat-eating is the culture that is learned. Actual carnivores would eat any meat no matter what it is, including carrion. In our system, we would eat only a few animals that we deem as food.
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.
If we disregard the real genetic causes that cause no 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.
