Chronic diseases and mortality- The real numbers

"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)."

Most of our chronic diseases are caused by diet and lifestyle. People have a hard time believing how many serious health problems are caused by a non-evolutionary congruent diet. Every year Center for Disease Control and Prevention updates the list of leading causes of death in the United States and for all other developed countries statistics are very similar. When you are developed as a nation, then you have more money to spend on processed food and meat. In the 10 most top leading causes of death, most are caused by life choices. The data is alarming. It is beyond that.

chronic-disease-pie-chart

I will try to translate data from the chart to be more clearly understood. When data shows that 24 percent of people are going to die from heart disease what that means is that for example if you have a family of four, one of them will probably die from heart disease and one from cancer. Two left. Then after that, go and take your pick, you have diabetes, stroke, different neurological conditions, or liver cirrhosis, crld is 5% (tobacco smoking is by far the most critical risk factor for chronic bronchitis and emphysema, accounting for about 80% of all cases). All of these diseases are chronic diseases. They didn’t exist in the past in such large numbers. When someone says chronic diseases what they actually mean lifestyle diseases.

The other side of the coin is that normal painless death by natural aging, just forget about it. Doesn’t exist anymore. The problem is not just about the way we are going to die, it is more about when because life expectancy is dramatically shortened and our quality of life is destroyed. We are not going to just drop dead from cancer. There is going to be a lot of chemotherapy and depression and again cancer goes away then reappears again after a couple of years. When you have a stroke and still manage to survive, you can lose a big chunk of your brain, and before you die from a heart attack, there are going to be a lot of treatments.

What treatments include is all the lifestyle changes to correct the bad habits that have lead to the creation of chronic diseases in the first place that we do not like, plus drugs and surgery. Quitting of smoking, physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, managing stress (getting upset or angry can trigger a heart attack). No salting of food and of course cholesterol-lowering drugs. Statins are the standard line, and almost all patients will be prescribed one of them but what they do not like to tell is that statistically when we look at real numbers they are only useful in the early stages in treating heart disease. They are effective also in those patients that are at elevated risk but still without cardiovascular disease as some sort of prevention. Statins also and that is rarely mentioned have side effects that are no joke. They include muscle pain, the risk of diabetes mellitus, and abnormalities in liver enzyme tests.

Who wants to be in constant pain? What they in reality do is block something known as s HMG-CoA. They inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA that has a crucial role in producing cholesterol. However, again if you go and eat it blocking enzymes in your own liver and your own production has no point.

That means no meat, no eggs, no dairy. If we look at what these diseases do, it is a life of despair.

It is not just:” Well ok I will live the way I like then if I die in 60 instead of 65 who cares, a will die happy.” If you think that, you are in dangerous delusion. Today 5-year-old children already have signs of arteriosclerotic plaque with approximately 50% of children having it at 2-15 years-of-age to 85% at 21-39 years-of-age (1). This is not normal. Arteriosclerosis does not usually happen in aging like cholesterol confusionists would like us to believe because of all of the stressful blood flow.

 Arteriosclerosis is a disease, not the aging process.

Diseases start early and could last for decades before we finally go. The death rate of heart disease and stroke will probably be much higher, but some patients literally get scared to death. And they are right. They are about to die when they hear the news of cardiovascular disease, so some percentage of them do make lifestyle changes and manage to avoid a heart attack. However, again this is just a chart of diseases that will kill us.

The real, bigger, and more advanced chart is the one with the whole list of chronic diseases that would not necessarily kill us, although some can do that too, but will “just” keep our lives in misery. These are so-called chronic diseases like arthritis, asthma, allergies, back pain, Crohn’s, osteoporosis, autoimmune conditions like psoriasis, different forms of lupus, multiple sclerosis, a wide variety of mental diseases like add, depression, bipolar, epilepsy, addictions of different forms, or just “regular” conditions like anxiety, acne vulgaris, low level of energy and fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.

All of this is well-accepted science and recognized as a scientific fact. These diseases didn’t exist in the past and in rural areas of the undeveloped world until recently. Thousands of studies on the topic have been done by now. For example over the past 40 years, two Adventist health studies have been conducted involving more than 50,000 Californian Adventists. The famous China study was maybe one of the best known among common people. There was also Harvard’s Meat & Mortality Studies  (2). In Harvard studies, more than 100,000 people for two decades was followed. The biggest one so far followed half of million people for ten years.

It is not easy to follow a half million people for ten years. It was The National Institutes of Health study so far the largest study of diet and health in history (3).

There was actually no real need to do all of these studies. Diet wars of today all or artificial. The science was well aware of mortality risk even in the ’50s. Even before WW2, there was knowledge in the scientific community but it was mostly ignored. You can read more about the topic in Part 1 and Part 2 of the book series (Go Vegan? Review of Science: Part 1 [Milos Pokimica]).

All of the chronic diseases today are known as diseases of affluence. When the standard of living goes up so does meat consumption. Today there is only a resistance in common people and industry and government that does not want to implement new dietary guidelines because of a variety of reasons.

Standard American animal product dominated diet is extremely nutrient deficient. With all of the meat and eggs and dairy, more than 60% of people eating it are deficient in magnesium. More than 90% of people eating it are potassium deficient and more than 80% deficient in vitamin E. Animal products do not contain magnesium and vitamin E in adequate amounts. On top of that, there are other “non-essential” nutrients that are not present in animal products like non-essential minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, iodine, vitamin D, selenium, and so on. Minimal recommended values are in many cases deliberately low. An example would be an RDA for iodine.

This story is the story of quality of life. Treatment is expensive.

more doctors smoke camels
Good old days.

It is the same story as once was with smoking. Until dietary guidelines are changed and they will be, it would be the responsibility of every individual for himself to learn about diet and nutrition.

This is hard to do with all of the conflicting information. Today people still smoke but at least they are consciously aware of the associated risks.

No one should force anyone into doing something. The risks should be acknowledged and it should be conscious decision.

PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.  After nutritional scientist and author Dr. T. Colin Campbell speaks to the Kentucky legislature, his oldest son Nelson works with Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet.  Through this well intentioned effort, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. After industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina, before circling back to Kentucky for a dramatic ending.  
 
A growing number of celebrities, athletes, TV hosts, and nutrition experts have promoted the plant-based diet in the past few years, and tens of thousands of people have documented their personal success stories.  But as more doctors and public officials become aware of the healing power of plant-based nutrition the question arises: Why don’t they share the information with the public?  Tragically, there have been few official medical or state-sponsored efforts in the nation to support the life sustaining benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.

PlantPure Nation was filmed across the USA and includes world-renowned experts, doctors and authors. The Production team includes Director Nelson Campbell, and Producer John Corry & Writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives.

Are we omnivores, carnivores or herbivores? It’s important for animals to eat what they are physiologically and anatomically designed to eat, to improve the chances of survival and health. So, what are humans designed to eat? Dr. Sofia Pineda Ochoa discusses this often misunderstood topic.

The first part of the transcript is included below for reference, and the full transcript (which is too long to have here) is available on our website, along with sources and credits, at this link: http://meatyourfuture.com/2015/09/herbivores-carnivores/

[The following transcript is an approximation of the audio in  video. To hear the audio and see the accompanying visuals, please play the video.]

PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT:

Are humans herbivores, carnivores or omnivores? It’s very important for a given animal to eat what they are physiologically and anatomically designed to eat, to improve the chances of survival and health. So, what are humans designed to eat?

When looking at a species to determine what they are in terms of carnivore, omnivore or herbivore, we can look at their behavior or we can look at their biology. From a behavioral standpoint, humans behave as omnivores because we observe many humans in their behavior eating a wide variety of both animal and plant-based foods. Biologically, however, from a physiologic and anatomic standpoint, it’s a different story.

Dr. Williams C. Roberts from the National Institutes of Health and Baylor University — who is the editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Cardiology and one of the most prominent cardiologists in the world with over 1,500 publications in peer reviewed medical journals — summarized our answer very nicely. He wrote:

“Although most of us conduct our lives as omnivores, in that we eat flesh as well as vegetables and fruits, human beings have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores. The appendages of carnivores are claws; those of herbivores are hands or hooves. The teeth of carnivores are sharp; those of herbivores are mainly flat (for grinding). The intestinal tract of carnivores is short (3 times body length); that of herbivores, long (12 times body length). Body cooling of carnivores is done by panting; herbivores, by sweating. Carnivores drink fluids by lapping; herbivores, by sipping. Carnivores produce their own vitamin C, whereas herbivores obtain it from their diet. Thus, humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores.”

That’s right. Humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores or omnivores — because omnivores, like bears and raccoons, actually retain most of the carnivorous characteristics, so that they are still able to digest and hunt their prey, and do so effectively.

Thus, humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores.”

That’s right. Humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores or omnivores — because omnivores, like bears and raccoons, actually retain most of the carnivorous characteristics, so that they are still able to digest and hunt their prey, and do so effectively.

Are humans omnivores, carnivores or herbivores?

How much is a human life worth? An innovative cancer therapy promises to save lives. But it is extremely expensive. Will the insurance companies pay for it? What is the manufacturer's return on investment? And do lobbyists drive up prices?

In 2018, the Kymriah gene therapy was approved in Europe. Immune cells are taken from the patient, genetically reprogrammed into cancer killer cells and returned to the patient as an infusion. The results of the Kymriah study only cover a period of 18 months. In 40 percent of patients, lymph gland cancer does not return during this time. It is not clear whether Kymriah has a long-term effect. The Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis offers the new therapy - it costs 370,000 Swiss francs per patient. Health insurance companies are not usually prepared to pay that much and are complaining about a lack of transparency. 

But the killer cells were not invented in the Novartis laboratories, but at a US university. When Professor Carl June started his research almost 30 years ago, no pharmaceutical company was interested. It was only thanks to funding from tax money and donations that he was able to develop Kymriah at all. After a story went around the world about a girl with leukemia whose cancer disappeared thanks to Kymriah, the pharmaceutical company contacted Novartis and secured exclusive marketing rights. To launch Kymriah on the market, Novartis funded the necessary clinical trials. It's not an isolated incident: Over 60% of newly approved medicines in the US are developed by small biotech companies or universities. Pharmaceutical companies today frequently act as capital providers, cooperating with universities or buying up biotech companies. 

A paradigm shift has taken place in the pharmaceutical industry: Whereas high drug prices used to be justified by research costs, the industry is now using the value of gained lifetime to argue its case.
