Americans are nutritionally starved. The majority are suffering from full belly starvation.
The standard American diet is very low in nutrition, but very high in calories. This is a fatal combination but a boon to the medical establishment, which profits off our ill health. Adopting Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s Nutritarian diet will go a long way toward helping you to ward off the disastrous health protocol mandated under Obamacare and traditional American medicine.
The basics of taking care of yourself — drinking plenty of water, eating fresh and healthy foods on the periphery of the grocery store (and not the aisles), staying active, and making time for sleep — will always win out over the most recent miracle-working snake oil on the market.
Junk food is addictive.
A recent study by PubMed shows how foods with high glycemic index alter parts of the brain responsible for hunger, thirst and the natural rhythms and body cycles.
If you want to get the most nutrients from a salad, take the advice of researchers who have found that what you put on your salad is as important as what’s in your salad. A study at Purdue shows that olive oil on a salad helps your body absorb more beneficial phytonutrients than other oils make possible.
I am a 71 year old male and a subscriber to your newsletter. Thanks for all of your great info, much appreciated.
A couple months ago you mentioned in one of your monthly newsletters that you were suffering from snoring and sleep apnea.
I too went through the same remedies that you are using. I shifted my diet early this year (“Eat to Live” by Joel Furhman) and as a consequence stopped eating wheat products. Voila! No more snoring or apnea. Period. My girlfriend loves it!
I suggest that you stop wheat products for a month and see what happens. I would also check out other areas where wheat (gluten) lurks. Celiac disease sites are a good start.
Dropping wheat (gluten) does not work for everyone re snoring and apnea.
Google ‘snoring and gluten’ intolerance and you will find many articles.
I wish that someone, including my doctors, had turned me on to this possibility.
Best of luck.
Credit Michelle Obama for promoting water consumption, but she must be criticized for not going far enough.
Everyone, seniors especially, should drink more water and less sugar- and high fructose corn syrup-laden beverages. That’s because these beverages are acidic and HFCS is responsible for a majority of the obesity and poor health of Americans.
What do you recommend as a sugar substitute?
Cutting, burning and poisoning (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy) do nothing to prevent cancer, nor can they reverse the underlying mechanisms that triggered or promoted its growth in the first place. Moreover, cancer will likely return somewhere else in the body if conventional methods are your only treatment strategy.
In his book Questioning Chemotherapy, leading author and consultant on cancer treatment Ralph Moss, Ph.D., explains chemotherapy to be an effective treatment option in only 2 percent to 4 percent of cancers: Hodgkin’s disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia, testicular cancer and choriocarcinoma.
A new study by the Harvard School of Public Health seems to show that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of suicide than non-coffee drinkers.
Researchers reviewed data from three large caffeine studies and found that the risk of suicide for adults who drank two to four cups of caffeinated coffee per day was about half that of those who drank decaffeinated coffee or very little or no coffee.
After years of dithering, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finally set a standard for labeling foods gluten-free. Gluten, a substance found in wheat, barley and rye, as well as in foods made from those grains, causes autoimmune reactions in at least 3 million Americans and threatens their health.
Way back in 2004, Congress passed a law mandating a standard for foods labeled gluten-free. Recently, pressure has grown on the FDA to set a standard for labeling, as the market for gluten-free foods has climbed to more than $4 billion a year.
