People are Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired.

People, lots of people are finally waking up to the Fact that the Standard American Diet is killing them!  Addicted to fast, processed food with little nutritional value they are realizing that this crap is causing most of the lifestyle disease (cancer, heart disease, diabetes) and costing them a fortune in medical bills.  Surgeries and diabolical ‘treatments’ are barbaric and mostly ineffective; especially over any length of time.

 

Arteries continue to clog after a stent or bypass surgery, blood pressure is only reduced a small fraction by drugs that have horrendous side effects when a lifestyle change might drop your high blood pressure by 100 points in a matter of DAYS.

 

Cancers, all kinds, treated with deadly poison, cancer promoting radiation and barbaric/disfiguring surgeries only put a short delay, if any, on the progress or return of cancer.  A Lifestyle Change can not only prevent cancer, prevent it from recurring but may make that diabolical treatment unnecessary.

 

Diabetes 2 is ravaging young and old alike.  Diet based on crap brings out the old IT adage, “garbage in garbage out” and that is the result of the Standard American Diet.

 

Doctors?  They haven’t a clue, with rare exceptions.  They make massive amounts of money along with the healthcare industry by simple Treating People to Death.  They don’t understand or know, and most don’t want to know, how NUTRITION, simple Whole Food, can stop, reverse and prevent most of these diseases!

 

Proof?  Look at the marketplace and follow the money.  Dairy free ice creams, meatless meatballs, dairy free cheese and on and on are taking up more and more space at the grocery stores.  They don’t do that unless there is a Demand; and by god there finally IS a growing demand to dump disease, get healthy and stop being treated to death!

All processed foods are bad, did you also know much of your meat does not come from the US and is not approved by FDA?  In addition, the vegetables you eat also do not come from here, even at a farmers market.  Most all have pesticides on them that simple washing will not remove.
You have to go pick the stuff yourself from "friendly farms" or locate stores who do buy from local farmers.
Better yet..grow your own food in your basement...many people do.

About time. Here in Europe McShit loses terrain, and in Africa there's not even ONE of those poisonous places (at least in the francophone countries).
 
We don't need all those fat, ugly and dumbed down McHordes all across the globe :-)

Another major problem I feel is the injection or introduction of growth hormones in the food supply. The body does not know how to dispense of them and over time they build up within the system and obesity with all of its effects take place.

If I'm going to eat ice cream or cheese it's going to be made the old fashioned way and that requires milk from a cow. I'm not into any of those frankenfoods. As for meatless meatballs, that's just plain disgusting.

Skip Stein sez: lifestyle disease (cancer, heart disease, diabetes) and costing them a fortune in medical bills. - and SR Morris notes: going to be made the old fashioned way and that requires milk from a cow.- Imagine the taste when it's your livestock, and know how the animals have been fed since you feed and have raised them.  Part of my life I wish I could have again, although it's a lot of work.  I do believe "raising your own," or growing your own is best is you can, but it takes effort.  Got real complaints from WBers when an article I wrote about living with the land was published.  I think the physical effort is also health building and good for our general health.  The other thing WBers feared was, somehow, the government making them grow vegetables.  What do you think about urban food deserts that make up most of America's inner cities, like Kansas City, MO, where about 30,000 people can buy food at a few C stores, 1 Costco and one "real" grocery store (a small Aldie's).  Seeing people in C Stores with an armload of frozen pizza and several frozen burritos is depressing, at best, realizing that's all they can buy locally.  Think about where these folks will be at when they soon lose their healthcare.  The rightist WB approach has been to discard quality foods for the poor, and "any food will do," is proper politics.

Is it so bad over there ??? You're joking ?
 
IF that's true - PUB works really good to advertise the US as the land of almost paradise LOL
 
Better get back to real life as fast as possible. I heard that places like Oregon and Washington state have gotten the picture.

SEFa asks: Is it so bad over there ??? You're joking ?-No joke.  I've actually driven around that area of KC and counted, after being told this by someone I was working with when down there on business. - AND I heard that places like Oregon and Washington state have gotten the picture. - Depends on context, but it is nice to have access to locally grown foods, much of it organic and almost all high quality.

SEFa sez: Man, people are stupid. It's all on the net, right ?-There was a state-level attempt to pass a law requiring food producing company to label their packaging if the food had GMOs in it.  It was an initiative, meaning it was popular enough by people to get it on a ballot, but industry opposed it and spent millions to defeat it, which they did.  A similar measure met same fate in Cailfornia.  Since food industry says GMO are okay and even suggest they're good for you, you'd think they'd WANT the ads on their food packaging.  Guess not.

Wow, thanks for all your comments!  This kind of proves the point I was trying to make; People, YOU, are and have realized that fast food and overly processed 'food' from animal products are mostly toxic.  The picture I posted is ALL processed food as well but made from non-animal sources so no TMAO generated in the gut that causes cancer (see: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/carnitine-choline-cancer-and-cholesterol-the-tmao-connection/)
 
The number of alternative or 'analogue' products show that there IS a growing market demand.  This is great but just a drop in the pond of government and medical industry corruption and malfeasance. Still it IS a start.
 
My lovely wife, Chef Nancy, castigated me for this picture but I was trying to show an economic view, not health.  All these products ARE processed but still remain MUCH better than the many processed animal products (see TMAO video above).  Dairy is deadly as T. Collin Campbell pointed out in the China Study years ago.  We suggest these type of processed non-meat, non-dairy, non-egg, non-fish alternatives as 'bridging foods' to a fully plant based lifestyle.  Beans, greens and brown/dark rice are so healthy and CHEAP you will save money; did I mention DELICIOUS?  So many ways to prepare wonderful foods.  My Chef Nancy has a Pinterest site with over 20,000 receipes and info: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/carnitine-choline-cancer-and-cholesterol-the-tmao-connection/
 
Anyway, so much to discuss but we seem to be on a better track....

Good nutrition is the foundation of good health.  Variety is important, but it's very possible to enjoy yourself and eat healthfully at the same time!  
Skip Stein Added Jun 17, 2017 - 10:28am
Yes Dino, so correct.  People think that Plant Based Nutrition is bland, only salads and veg; but it is Delicious, Nutritious and did i say DELICIOUS?  Full of flavors, textures and smells that most Americans seldom experience.  Elimination of much of that 'greasy odor' and elimination of the high fat, sugar, salt content, you start to actually taste the FOOD.  Simple meals, prepared inexpensively, quickly and deliciously!  http://plantbased-cuisine.com/
wsucram15 Added Jun 17, 2017 - 1:10pm
Just watch where you buy your food, no one pays attention to that and very few stores carry local grown foods or foods with no pesticides.  You have to wash with water and vinegar to clean it then rinse.  This is cancer causing as well.
Buy a steamer and some seasoning, great investment, wonderful taste, low fat and good variety of stuff with the right steamer.
If you cant find a store with vegetables or meat you trust, look for local farmers in your area that dont use pesticides.  Go purchase from them. Also on your meat, look at reviews on local butchers and use them.  Its worth it.
Avoid salt (its in ALL processed foods) and sugar, even sugar substitutes like aspartame.

I believe it’s against the rules to advertise your wares on this site.  
 
My two cents, eating a balanced diet is the healthiest way to live.  This means relying on only plants for one’s nutrition is a less healthy way to live.  So I’m not buying.
Skip Stein Added Jun 18, 2017 - 8:17am
I'm not selling Thomas so no worries.  Just information.  You are free to choose; that's what's wonderful about Our USA.  Choose to live or to suffer and die; it's all your choice.  The uninformed, like you, fill the hospitals, doctors' offices and graveyards well before their time.  I am just trying to 'Pay it Forward' with the knowledge I've gained and experiences I've had changing to a Plant Based Lifestyle with my lovely wife.  Beat cancer, no drugs, no meds, no surgery, no radiation.  Similar with my wife, beat fibromyalgia, heard disease and excess weight (caused by meds).  We are both over 70, feel fantastic, hike all over the USA and try to explain, supported by over 8 years of intense research, that a Plant Based Lifestyle, promoted by expert physicians, peer reviewed studies from around the works IS the Healthiest way to stay healthy and enjoy a long, active life.
 
So my friend, eat what you want.  Take those pills with horrendous side effects, not to mention the expense.  We are here to help if you change your mind. That is the other GREAT thing about a Plant Based Lifestyle, it is never too late to get started.
Maureen Foster Added Jun 18, 2017 - 11:04pm
I don’t see too many people disputing the notion that plant-based diet is far healthier than a non-plant diet.  However, life is for living and a good steak or burger is something no plant can replace. For whatever it’s worth, I think you’re way out of line saying a plant-based diet can do half the things you say.  For example, there is no cure for cancer and there is not link between cancer and the consumption of meat. 
 
Correct me if I’m wrong but it certainly sounds like you profit from people agreeing with you.  So this article isn’t just information.  It provides a link to your website where you sell stuff. I think it’s great that you work in an industry that you’re obviously very passionate about. 
Katharine Otto Added Jun 20, 2017 - 1:08pm
Skip,
Agreed doctors know next to nothing about nutrition. Also, much of consumer choice is driven by advertising. Look at what people buy in the grocery stores, if you want to know why Americans are poor, sickly, and fat. Sugar, processed food, bottled water.  
 
What with herbicides, pesticides, artificial fertilizers, mono-agriculture, and genetically mutated (I know, "modified") crops, even the fresh produce and things like dried beans and brown rice become suspect.  Look at hospital cafeterias, if you want an example of what not to eat.  Fast food havens, with so-called food served up in styrofoam and plastic clam-shell containers.
 
I do believe some of your claims are overblown, because there are many contributors to bad health, stress being one of the primary ones, according to me. Food fanaticism is probably unhealthier than eating a steak, at least once in a while.
Skip Stein Added Jun 20, 2017 - 1:24pm
Katharine, agree.  That is why we subscribe to a Plant BASED Lifestyle.  Once well established, you immune system will counteract a once in a while toxic intake of a steak or other animal meal.  Like on Thanksgiving, a turkey, or Christmas prime rib or Easter ham.  They will literally 'pass through' without being digested because a plant based gut flora has nothing to do with them.  Still we avoid ALL meat, fish, dairy and eggs and try to educate others on their dangers; not to mention the COSTS (both in product cost and resulting medical treatments).  See: http://publishing.wf4hl.com/deadly-four.html
Skip Stein Added Jun 20, 2017 - 4:21pm
Damned Straight New Honesty (whoever you really are).  Doctors receive little to NO nutritional education; check ANY medical school curriculum!  Brainwashed by the same corrupt government agencies, controlled by Big Pharma, the corrupt medical system in much of the World focuses on Treatment but NOT PREVENTION.  When doctors know little or nothing, the treatments are utter failures we MUST resort to healing ourselves.
 
It is so damnable EASY and Cheap to do.  Be nice if the idiots would allow natural medicines (like medical marijuana) but they fight it tooth and nail as it would and WILL destroy their billion$ industry.
 
Prevention is the key.  Most of the deadliest diseases people die from today (Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes) are LIFESTYLE diseases, self induced by lousy/no nutrition.  As more and more people realize this, the Planet will reject the current failed medical philosophy of drugs/surgery/radiation/poison and begin to get Healthy by PREVENTING these diseases.
 
Politicians and their masters in the industries that promote these toxins should be convicted of malfeasance in office at the least; stupidity at the very least and downright criminal murder with compliance at the worst.
 
Look around you.  People are Fat, Sick and nearly DEAD with fatigue, illnesses, on pills and medications that often have worse side effects that the ailments they are purported to treat.  Then they must take more drugs to offset the deleterious side effects of the drugs they are currently taking.
 
Most people (do you?) know of a parent, grandparent, child or spouse who is taking multiple and mostly ineffective medications.
 
So you bet your ass I am a 'Non-Doctor' and thank god for that!  I am still alive today because I ignored these idiots and so many more people are still ALIVE and Thriving because they ignored these idiots.  You want to LIVE?  Better ask your doctor about Nutrition; if he ignores you, fails to be responsive RUN AWAY as fast as you can!
Katharine Otto Added Jun 20, 2017 - 9:11pm
New Honesty, I am a doctor, and I can tell you doctors learn very little about nutrition in medical school. Deepak Chopra says the same thing.  Nurses learn more in their training.  I agree about a balanced diet.  I don't agree with the health care racket's overkill strategies with tests, procedures, surgeries and pills.  I think there is a legitimate place for alternative therapies, from chiropractic to homeopathy to acupuncture, but most insurance doesn't cover these.  I believe in the "placebo" effect, meaning if you believe something helps, it does.  
Jeff Michka Added Jun 21, 2017 - 7:07pm
Just watch where you buy your food, no one pays attention- Bring your glasses to the store, folks.  Read the labels.  IF  a product's label leads with sugar, salt and artificial flavors and ingredients, put it down and look for something else. It's like the "Dried APPLE snack" sold by WAL-MART.  Label clearly states: No fruit in this product.  Really? Made from the very best Chinese Industrial wastes, no doubt.

The best presentation I have seen on the human gut is the one that I follow.  When asked the question is man a meat eater or a vegetarian by nature, the explanation was that the human gut was designed for eating meat with adaptations for fruits and vegetables.  I enjoy eating meats and try to ensure I get enough vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
 
Just from observation, sugar seems to be bad.  Or, maybe not bad, but is so easy to consume vast calories of sugar.  My father's second wife became portly.  She had the habit of drinking sweet tea all day.  She switched to unsweetened tea and in short order, her weight returned to normal.  I avoid sweet drinks.  Fruit juice is no better.
 
There are so many things we have been told that were bad for us.  Butter is one.  We were told that we should substitute vegetable oil.  Now we are told that vegetable oil is bad for you.  People are moving back to butter or lard for health reasons.  Salt was bad for you.  Now, maybe not. 
 
For better or worse, I have adapted myself to my wife's habits.  First, you boil all the nutrients out, and then you fry it, followed by steaming.
 
 
Katharine Otto Added Jun 22, 2017 - 12:11pm
I find the whole nutrition thing very confusing.  There are so many opinions out there, those who claim to know more than they do, and best-selling books claiming one diet or another is good (or bad) for you.  I generally trust my body to tell me what to eat (or not), and I've always abhorred fast and processed food. It simply tastes bland and unappetizing.  I prefer vegetarian most of the time, but lately have had cravings for meat. I may be anemic.  
 
A recent medical education article says eggs are no longer bad for you.  The good cholesterols (HDLs) and bad cholesterols (LDLs) balance each other out, and triglycerides are unaffected.  Eggs may even have a neuroprotective effect, to reduce risk for dementia.
 
Deepak Chopra claims fermented foods are bad for you, but there are many people who claim the opposite.  
 
Does anyone really know?  I say trust your body, and eat what makes it feel strong and healthy.

I was 110 pounds when I was 18. Now, at 59, I'm still at 110 pounds. When I was in Senegal a month ago I put on 10 pounds in 4 weeks which I already lost again after 2 months in Switzerland.
 
I guess because in large parts of Africa food is still food and not chemically flavored biologic waste.

Hi Skip,
I am a gal who has lost 45 pounds in less than a year,
$ 30,000 in medical tests. They found it was all intestinal. I was sent for surgery, removed a lump in my throat, then off to a DR. who said eat as little as possible, for the next 3 months, my answer to him was, i have lost my body mass, and can't even think straight, due to so much weight loss, he said you have to heal the belly, then feed it, well that answer did not work for me, so i called my GP, told him what was going on, and was sent to see a nutritionist.The best move i have ever made. 
She told me, eat all fresh fruits, and veggies, no meat for 3-4 months, i have gained 10 pounds back, now i am able to have little doses of meat, never ever red meat, this is what i was told,worst thing for you, and your body. We do not digest things as well as the old timers did, as she stated, they worked physically all day long, most now are sedentary. A huge part of our troubles along with so much garbage added to the food to keep it on shelves forever..
I have never followed a link you put up, i will look into the recipes you have, seems i could use them. And to whoever cares: One of the first things  a cancer patient is to eliminate SUGAR!! This simply feeds the bad cells.. )0( 
BTW- i am a natural gal who is also an advocate for legal marijuana, as well as letting us choose holistic, versus FDA approved. I would always choose holistic.
