It is not genes that matter but the way they express themselves.
Vitamins that regulate homocysteine levels are B12, folate, and B6. Most non-vegans get enough B12 but not enough folate while vegans get more folate but do not have any B12 if not supplemented.
Nutrition profile of our modern meat, sugar, processed food diet is completely incongruent with our evolution resulting in severe micronutrient deficiency.
Known associations with milk and dairy consumption are infertility, ovarian and breast cancer, leukemia, diabetes type 1, autism, arteriosclerosis, cataract, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, hyperactivity, congestion, pimples, and more…
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 guidelines 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 look into available science to understand the potential health effects that these chemicals might have.
Children consume around one-fifth of their total calorie needs from just refined sugar. If we add fat and the rest of nutrition-deprived processed foods to the list it becomes a complete nutrition nightmare.
Processed food means that something from whole food is removed, usually fiber and something is added, usually fat, sugar, salt, and msg.
In 1977 the push for a change of Dietary Guidelines (McGovern Report) to more 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.
Marketed as a wonder of olive oil, the Mediterranean diet had nothing to do with any oil of any sort except in the measure that it can replace butter and lard.
Adventist Health Study showed that Seventh-day Adventists do have a measurable lower risk than other Americans for most of the Western diseases.
Our natural optimal human diet is a diet that our hominin ancestors were eating for the last 30 million years, not anatomically modern humans in the Stone age.
What is the cause of obesity epidemic? For all life on Earth, food is not a choice. The hardest thing for the animal in the wilderness is to gain weight.
Humans evolved for 50 million years from plant-eating mammals. Hunting is not natural hominin activity. The Paleo diet only existed for the last 200,000 years.
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.
In the top 10 leading causes of death, this includes chronic diseases, most are caused by a non-evolutionary congruent diet (high amounts of animal products).
If we disregard the real genetic causes that cause no more than 5% of deaths, the real reason for chronic diseases is an evolutionary incongruent diet.
