The great failure of modern media is that instead of overcoming widespread ignorance – they contribute to its growth. For example, it is not easy to find on the internet the fact that there is twice as effective method of treating type II diabetes than the standard one (pharmacotherapy plus the classic diabetic diet).
This method is a treatment based on a PLANT-BASED diet supplemented with PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.
Every patient has the right to know about it, because the choice of treatment method belongs to him! Each physician is therefore obliged to inform the patient about the existence of PLANT-BASED therapy (i.e. a diet based on unprocessed vegetable products).
Contrary to popular beliefs, the most common cause of premature deaths are not cancers but cardiovascular diseases.
In the vast majority of cases, these diseases are a shadow of improper eating habits – dietary mistakes repeated over the years.
In some circles, myocardial infarction is simply called DEATH CAUSED BY EATING. For decades we have realized that the source of the disease is excess saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet, but now we know that it was only half of the truth.
History teaches that the universality of beliefs does not make them truer. It sometimes happens that the more common the conviction, the greater the distance separates it from the truth and – thus – the more damage it can do.
The discovery of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, quickly called breast cancer genes, has led to widespread recognition of genes as the only risk factor for developing this disease. *
* The consequence of this error is the mistaken belief that the only effective cancer prevention is breast removal; Campbell describes the cases of women who are considering removing their breasts, not only their own but also the breasts of their daughters.
One of the strongest correlations between any cancer and any environmental factor is the interdependence of: intestinal cancer and meat consumption!
Today – in principle – there are no longer those who would dare to undermine the relationship between the incidence of colon cancer and environmental factors – diet. The whole dispute is about whether the greater importance for the morbidity is the lack of fiber, or excess of animal protein, and – analogously – whether the positive effect of the plant diet results from the higher intake of vegetables and fruits or reduced consumption of animal products.
Prostate cancer accounts for 25% of all cancers. This is the most common cancer in men: after 70 years, up to half of men suffer from prostate cancer or its latent form.
Prostate cancer meets all the criteria of a diet-dependent civilization disease; its ascension depends on the dietary habits of a given region of the world. Most often, it is accompanied by the Western diet (and taking over the western lifestyle by immigrants).
We are dealing here with one of the most cohesive links between nutrition and cancer. This relationship is called:
The role of proteins in the body is usually described as structural-regulating. Well, the author of the above characteristic would probably write that, for example, the egg plays a chicken-forming role for the chicken. Perhaps – from a certain point of view – he is right, but for me it is just an unnecessary multiplication of beings.
Protein is nitrogen-rich, specialized molecule that bring matter to life. It can be said that – for matter – the protein plays organism-creating role: it enables broadly understood variability, i.e. actions and reactions within matter itself. In a word: life.
Before I became a dietician – I was 250 lbs Roly-Poly. My favorite method of slimming was the low-glycemic diet, created by Michel Montignac.
The low GI diets, however, DO NOT work!
Well, they work – but only in the initial period when we are in the euphoria of the first successes. Then, however, we start to gain weight – even though we follow all the instructions. Why? Because the very assumption of the method is a mistake!
