That blog title is kinda scary, I apologize. I don’t want to be dramatic. I just want to share pieces of information that would be good for us all to be aware of.
You may have seen a post Vegan!?…Why?? I did, sharing snipets from The China Study. The comments I received from people, detailing the impact on, & change in, their lives, and more significantly disease in their lives, by going to Plant Based eating clued me ‘huh (lightbulb)’….as The China Study states ‘Yet despite the urgent need for this understanding and health, people are still confused from massive amounts of mis-information.’
I don’t know if this information will shed any light for anyone, and everyone has to do their own research, make their own choices and come to their own conclusions. I hope to put out there enough here and there to encourage us to think, and dig a little further.
Snipet Continued from Vegan!?….Why??:
…’The amounts of protein being fed in this study were those that humans routinely consume. Not extraordinary levels, as is so often seen in carcinogen studies. We found that not all proteins had this effect..
What protein consistently and strongly promoted cancer? Casein, which makes up 87% of cow’s milk protein.
What type of protein did not promote cancer, even at high levels of intake? The safe proteins were from plants, including wheat, and soy.
This project/study eventually produced more than 8000 statistically significant associations between various dietary factors and disease. What made this project especially remarkable is that: people who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. Even relatively small intakes of animal-based food were associated with adverse effects. People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. These results could not be ignored.
These findings show that heart disease, diabetes, and obesity can be reversed by diet intake. Various cancers, autoimmune diseases, bone health, kidney health, vision and brain disorders in old age (like cognitive dysfunction and Alzheimer’s) are convincingly influenced by diet. Most importantly, the diet that has time and again been shown to reverse and/or prevent these diseases is the same whole foods plant-based diet.’
As a former hard core carnivore choosing meat and animal products before any other option, breakfast, lunch and dinner, my goal is to keep pumping out as many recipes that meet and satisfy the horizon of options I enjoyed as a carnivore along with feeling just as satisfied (if not more satisfied because there’s a heavy, sluggish, weightedness missing as I eat plant based). I’ll keep ’em coming.
And please let me know, any thoughts you have …..and maybe we can all rock climb together at 90 😉
