Dr. Keith Roach, in his daily column to a heart disease victim, recommended “a diet based mostly on plants, with the option of adding whole grains, fish, nuts, fruits and lean meat sources such as skinless chicken.” He did emphasize low sugar foods but then said “commercial red meat” should be limited to no more than two servings per week. He concluded that “this diet is likely to reduce risk of further events.”
October 2005 after the first frost and summer grasses had turned brown. The growth of winter grasses was delayed by the drought.
This is another arena where the news confuses rather than educates. Or commentary attempts to expose how various organizations continue to steer the consumer into following the same old habits he has always followed. If we are going to change the way Americans eat, that doesn't mean we just rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. We have got to literally change the foods we eat. It's impossible to expect something to be different if we continue to do what we've always done.
Everyone has a different idea of what is and is not food. They never stop to think that for all of time fruit was highly seasonal. The same for nuts. They do not understand that modern fruit is far and away sweeter than the old fruits prior to man's invention of farming and plant and animal breeding. They have no idea that the only food for man and beasts that was around 365 days a year was either green leafy plants and animals. (Yes, grasses can even grow under the snow or are "preserved" under the snow and ice.)
It’s official, the Paleo Diet was dead on arrival in the U.S.
The word "organic" does not always mean "nutritional superiority." Yes, there are times when organic fruits and vegetables are more nutritious than conventionally raised fruits and vegetables. But we must be fair here. In many cases the opposite is also true!
In food safety terms, "organic" never means safer food. That's because nearly all food borne illnesses have organic origins! Organic origins are bacteria, viruses, molds, and fungi for starters. On top of those major food safety problems there is the mineral and chemical imbalances that can come naturally in nature.
Amazingly, and in spite of an outpouring of protests from its audience, National Public Radio has reported the results of a major Stanford University study that debunks Organic Myths. A link to the actual study reveals this important note . . . . Primary Funding Source: None.
I’ve been pounding the table for years about the organic myth. For one instance, how can organic corn be better than conventionally grown corn?
