Health Eludes Some and Embraces Others..Why?

A snipet today from The China Study.  My goal with these snipets is awareness, possibly good health, longevity?..!  Not everyone can go PlantBased 100%, but maybe 50% of the time? or part of the time?  It’s a bit of healthierness…(if that’s a word;)).  Which is the biggest reason why I put these recipes out there, so we have the option to still REALLY enjoy, indulge!…who wants to survive on carrot sticks?!…I don’t!…..speaking of which I’m still craving more of those sliders ;):

The China Study:

‘…I now know the answer is that food primarily determines the outcome.

If you are male in this country you have a 47% chance of getting cancer.  If you are female you have a 38% lifetime chance of getting cancer.  Adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle can prevent the majority of cancers in the US.  Old age can and should be graceful and peaceful.

Almost a 1/3 of the adults 20 years and over are obese.  One is considered obese if he or she is carrying more than a 1/3 of a person above and beyond a healthy weight.

1 out of 13 Americans now has diabetes, and it continues to rise.  If we don’t heed the importance of diet, millions of additional Americans will unknowingly develop diabetes and suffer consequences, including blindness, limb amputation, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and pre-mature death.

Both diabetes and obesity often forecast deeper more serious health problems like heart disease, cancer and stroke.  2 of the most frightening statistics show that diabetes among people in their 30’s has increased 70% in less than 10 years.  Such an incredibly fast growth may become an unbearable burden on a health system that is already strained.

But the most pervasive killer in our culture is Heart Disease.  It will kill 1 out of 3 Americans.  And the most dramatic finding is that heart disease can be prevented and reversed by diet, a plant based diet.’

Maybe we could make a different meal choice here and there…and see what happens…?

  1. Even the China study started at a 5% casein / creatine levels. Maybe they knew a 100% plant based diet would be difficult to adhere too.This percentage allows you to deviate from time to time to enjoy your favorite pastime food in moderation. (Note; this equals about a 1 time meal deviation every two weeks).
    So the way I calculated it, if you’re at your annual rib cook-off , having a few ribs should not bring you past the 5% total casein intake level. BTW, I heard folks drinking skim milk in the belief that it has no casein in it. Wrong! While it has no fat, it has more casein than whole milk. Almond milk is a safe and satisfying alternative in drinking and baking.

    • You and I are in the same place. In moderation is so much more possible for most people. Thanks so much for the information you share! It’s insightful and helpful!

      • I was afraid you’d yell at me! My vegan friends flip out if I even use an egg white wash in baking artisan bread. I love the idea of eating vegetarian but what I don’t like is when friends treat it similar to a religion. You get the idea.
        I really like your post and if I ever offend you in what i comment on, please accept my apologies. I think you are so level headed that you make being a vegetarian / cook much more fun 🙂 Joe

        • Thanks and I’ll never be offended by your ideas! The friends that turned me onto The China Study were incredibly non-judgemental. Everyone has to choose the level that works for them. Some is better than none, any lowering in the intake and amount of animal products is better than not. And the more great recipes we have to use the less we’ll even notice animal products aren’t there!
          Thanks so much for ALL your thoughts!

  2. I love all your informative posts Heather! Thank you!

  3. Yes- Animal fat in abundance is devastating to the human body- Check out “Food that kills full documentary” on youtube sometime if you’ve never seen it– Have a great weekend!

  4. One major trait I notice with Asian cuisine is the use of fermented vegetables and seaweed in any given meal. The nutrients and variety of enzymes jam packed in these foods are amazingly healthy and keep the body balanced with probiotics and vitamins… One thing to note, though, kimchi, for example, traditionally uses raw oysters or fish sauce to aid in fermentation. Additionally, dried fruits &nuts/grains (goji berries, wolfberries, gingko nuts, barley) are consumed in tonic soups, usually cooked in a meat-based stock, but served on a weekly basis. My great-gramma used to say, “Sundays are for brewing tonic soup so you start your week healthy!”

  11. Can HGH Supplemments Increase Lean Body Mass

    HGH, human growth hormone will be the hormone inside the human body responsible for escalating lean
    body mass along with sustaining iits integrity andd health.
    The scientifc title for this hormone iss somatotropin.
    Many people appear tto misunderstand the character of HGH insidfe
    the body and do not grasp exactly what this hormone does.

    Human growth hormone is capable of stimulating the growth of lean
    body mass, repairs to destroyed cells, and substitute off dead ones.
    As time passes we naturally commence to create less of it on the daily schedule.

    At the age of twenty the common production level of somatotropin iin the body will
    waver between four hundred and five hundred micrograms.
    This is according to activity level aand sometimes
    gender. That creation will drop to approxiimately half that quantity at age forty.
    But, from thee period this individual reaches age ninety they’ll create around twenty-five micrograms about the average.
    Which means the average person can develop twenty times less HGH around the average at age eighty as they can at age
    twenty.

    Supplements for HGH are not basically giving the body more human
    growth hormone. These supplements present significant proteins that
    the anterior pituitary gland employs to make HGH. That doesn’t indicate they’re ripoffs
    or worthless. They are doing work, and work properly with the objective of aiding in the raise of lean body mass.

    build lean muscle mass
    However, it should be noted that there is a strange concept that using HGH supplements will turn an average person into a super-human muscle development machine.

    This is not true. A superb, strong, HGH supplement will work
    well for many people and be virtually useless for others.

    You’ll find two main elements that determine how well a proper prodct will
    continue to work for you. Those facets are age and task.

    http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/Slayer

    An eighty year old man or woman that operates out each day will find that a good
    supplement will help them out to an unbelievable, almost staggeringly efficient, diploma.
    A twenty yrar oldd person that rests around consuming potato hips and playing video games all evenng will barely discover any transform aat all.
    In every honesty a twenty-year aged power-lifter won’t be probable see that much difference either.

    The truth within this matter is that HGH supplements will help
    increase lean body mass but only in persons that need the boost.
    A highly-active individual currently provides the maximum amount of HGH your body may
    use naturally anyway. The others is wasted. For these individuals they’d be betfter supported by a straightforward multivitamin.
    To pish the human body to construct noitably larger amounts oof lean muscle mass using HGH at a newer age will
    demand the usage of injections. This is a usually unlawful course of action without medical causes.
