We all enjoy the occasional cheat meal, chocolate bar, fried food, cake or whatever...
But if we are REALLY honest with ourselves, we all KNOW that these types of food
aren't that good for us, in fact a diet high in processed food, refined sugar, white flour, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives is shown to promote obesity, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
So we may get away with the occasional cheat meal, but is this type of diet capable of promoting long term health?
Short answer: Absolutely not. Hell No!
But what this demonstrates is that us humans are great adapters.
We can live for a period of time eating all sorts of crap foods that aren't good for us, but is that going to promote vibrant health, energy and longevity?
In fact, the 2004 documentary 'SuperSize Me' shows how eating fast food and junk food destroys us physically, emotionally an physiologically.
BUT, if You actually WANT to live a long, happy, vibrantly healthy life,
THEN You NEED to find out what the Healthy People and Healthy Cultures are doing.
So, The China Study is 417 pages based on one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of human nutrition ever conducted, launched via a partnership between Cornell and Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventative Medicine, with data collected over a span of 27 years.
It found that excess animal protein promotes cancer growth and that we need to reduce the consumption of animal protein by at least 70%. Also, heart disease can be reversed through nutrition.
Dr Michael Greger found from his review of the scientific literature, that the Top 15 killers in the USA are lifestyle related and will be largely eliminated if we adopted a whole foods, plant based diet, limiting processed foods and oils.
Blue Zones, the longevity study examined by author Dan Buettner, discovered that the Okinawans and Seventh Day Adventists of Loma Linda, California, eat a plant based diet, limiting the consumption of animal protein to less than 21 grams a day, allowing these two communities of people to live, on average
8-10 years longer than other Western cultures, with very few cases of heart disease, stroke, diabetes or various cancers.
So, the population studies and scientific literature is fairly conclusive when it comes to what we eat and the impact it has on our health.
But common sense and comparing our human characteristics with the physical characteristics of different species from the animal kingdom, also gives a strong indication of our historic diet and what we are designed to eat.
Even though we have teeth 'called' canines, they bare little resemblance to the canine teeth of true carnivores like Lions, Tigers and Wolves. Also, our mouths are relatively small, unlike the mouths of meat eating predators.
Our saliva contains Carbohydrate digesting enzymes like amylase, the same as other herbivores.
Our hands have fingers, great for picking fruits and vegetables, not claws for tearing flesh and bringing down prey, with flattened fingernails like other herbivores.
Carnivores produce Vitamin C in their gut, while we require it from our diet, like all herbivores.
High cholesterol is only an issue for non carnivores. True carnivores thrive on high cholesterol.
The length of our intestinal tract, 10x the length of our torso, in the same ratio as that of herbivores.
