The healthiest, longest living peoples in the world eat primarily a fresh whole plant based diet, very little meat/dairy/eggs (a little fish), almost no processed foods, and consume only 1900 calories per day!  Could this be the fountain of youth?

Are We Being Duped?

There is something that affects our health and wealth more than anything else.  And it’s literally right under our noses!  Our food.  But we’re being fooled into thinking it’s everything but food.  Don’t think so?  Then ponder these questions:

Why doesn’t the government emphasize to the public the results of decades of research showing that a rich animal protein (meat/dairy/eggs) and processed junk food diet (i.e., “Western” food, or the “food of the affluent”) is linked with increased levels of all kinds of disease?

On the contrary, why haven’t the results of decades of research, showing that a whole plant based food diet is linked with disease prevention and cure, been emphasized to the public?

Why are medications and procedures to address disease symptoms given priority over dietary prevention and cure treatments, especially when these medications and procedures cost far more and have been shown to be far less effective at treating or curing disease over dietary treatments?

Why is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. (after heart disease and cancer) attributed to “medical care” yet we spend the most on health care and have incredible medical technologies?

Who’s Pulling the Wool Over Our Eyes?

The answers to the above questions involve one or more (or all!) of the following:

  • Flawed nutrition research and/or misinformation that causes confusion as to the real cause-effect of diet on health
  • Flawed disease research and/or misinformation that causes confusion as to the real cause-effect of diet on disease
  • “Big money” food companies that push meat, dairy and highly processed “garbage” food products
  • “Big money” drug companies that push pills for every symptom, yet provide no cures
  • “Big money” hospitals that push technology based treatments, yet provide no cures

Mad Yet?

This should make everyone more than a little angry.  Is corporate greed really sacrificing the health and welfare of “the people?”  Many experts think “yes.”

T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, states that “Having been a member of several diet and health policy-making expert panels over a twenty-year period I harbored the view that these panels were dedicated to the promotion of consumer health.  I no longer believe this to be true…I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to health, government is not for the people; it is for the food industry and the pharmaceutical industry at the expense of the people.

Some Straight Talk – Backed Up By Research

The healthiest, longest living peoples in the world eat primarily a fresh whole plant based diet, very little meat/dairy/eggs (a little fish), almost no processed foods, and consume only 1900 calories per day!  Kind of turns our “modern society” food ideas upside down, huh?

Do you want to learn more about this health phenomenon of modern “civilized” and “affluent” society?  Read the very provocative The China Studyconsidered to be “the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted.”  And don’t miss out on a real eye opener, Healthy At 100, by John Robbins.  Find both at your local library.  These two books may very well contain the secrets of the fountain of youth – or at least the closest thing we’re going to find here!
