Great video: Dr. Mercola and Dr. Bush on Soil Microbes

Soil Microbes and Intercellular Communication… what a concept!

Dr. Mercola and Dr. Zach Bush

A very interesting video interview with a doctor who found that what he was taught in medical school was not what was needed to help people.

His epiphany led him to soil science. Deficiencies are caused by food not having the proper nutrients.

The soil is getting decimated. People need to wake up.

If I can feel good so can you!

Magnesium will absolutely help.

It will help you feel better and it will improve your health significantly if you do it right.

If you only take multiple vitamins or cheap magnesium from the drug store, it most likely won’t do anything but make you have diarrhea or runny stools.

If you have a magnesium deficiency, and most people do, it is very important to take more at first to get your levels up. The problem is that a lot of magnesium will make you go to the bathroom. A lot. Fortunately some magnesium doesn’t do that.

I suggest you do the necessary research and read a little so you don’t just end up grabbing a bottle next time you see it at the store, and then later say it didn’t work.

Knowing why you are taking something and understanding the potential benefits will help guide you to successfully dealing with any problems you may be trying to get rid of.

What will Magnesium do for me???

At the very least Magnesium will help you sleep better and reduce anxiety. It will also make you a stronger healthier person in a lot of ways. If you have ailments (and who doesn’t) there is a good chance you’ll feel better and maybe even forget you had those problems.

Below is a list of thirty-six conditions that you may experience if you are low on magnesium:

1. Acid reflux 2. Adrenal fatigue 3. Alzheimer’s disease 4. Angina 5. Anxiety and Panic Attacks 6. Arthritis 7. Asthma 8. Atherosclerosis with calcium deposits. 9. Blood Clots 10. Bowel disease 11. Brian dysfunction 12. Cholesterol elevation 13. Cystitis 14. Depression 15. Detoxification 16. Diabetes 17. Fatigue 18. Headaches 19. Heart disease 20. Hypertension 21. Hypoglycemia 22. Indigestion 23. Inflammation 24. Insomnia 25. Irritable bowel syndrome 26. Kidney disease 27. Kidney stones 28. Migraine 29. Musculoskeletal conditions 30. Nerve problems 31. Obstetrical and gynecological problems 32. Osteoporosis 33. Parking’s disease 34. Raynaud’s syndrome 35. Sports injuries 36. Tooth Decay

Excerpt from Dr. Carolyn Dean PDF: 

Magnesium is a necessary cofactor utilized by 700-800 enzyme systems that perform vital metabolic functions in the body. It took me a whole book, The Magnesium Miracle, to describe the intricacies of magnesium physiology. After reading that book you’ll agree that miracle is the most suitable word to describe a mineral that treats acid reflux, adrenal fatigue, angina, anxiety, atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, depression, diabetes type 2, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart attacks, IBS, insomnia, kidney stones, migraines, muscle spasms, nerve twitches, osteoporosis, PMS, seizures and more.

I’ve just listed many chronic conditions that people are suffering from today, yet has your doctor ever told you to take magnesium? Probably not. That’s because nutrient therapy is not taught in medical school. Magnesium is not regarded as a first-line therapeutic agent in hospitals or doctor’s offices and it’s not a patentable drug. For all these reasons, mainstream medicine remains blind to the extent of magnesium deficiency that is reported to be present in 70-80 percent of the population.

I will make it easy by providing the links to Magnesium Info downloads and info about the right kind of products.

1) PDF – Miracle of Magnesium (Read this – you’ll be amazed)

http://drcarolyndean.com/im_p1.pdf

If you are not yet convinced you need magnesium – this will set you straight.

2) PDF – Ultimate Guide

http://life-transformation-institute.org/resources/handouts_phil/Magnesium_UltimateGuideDrCarolynDean.pdf

Additional info on the kinds of symptoms people have when they are magnesium deficient.

3) Magnesium Miracle – The Book on Amazon (Look inside to read some of it free – also read the reviews at bottom)

https://www.amazon.com/Magnesium-Miracle-Revised-Updated/dp/034549458X

Me – I use 3 different kinds of Magnesium as of about July 2016 and I can tell a huge difference. Especially in sleeping and general well being.

I personally have not done mega doses but have worked my way up to taking more of it.

4) ReMag – Super effective but expensive, but good, because you can put a spoonful of the liquid in a bottle of water and sip it throughout the day.

I use this in addition to the other magnesium I take. Read the reviews on amazon. People love this.

https://www.amazon.com/Pico-Ionic-RnA-Formulated-Absorption-Experience/dp/B01LZLSJ7B/

5) Jigsaw – I take 2 or 3 of these tablets daily. They are time release.

Might be the best one to try first. Also read the reviews on amazon. People say how their lives have been changed. I do not like to run out of this. It helps me sleep like a baby.

https://www.amazon.com/Jigsaw-Magnesium-SRT-Supplement-Bioavailable/dp/B00O2T209E

6) Natural Calm – fizzy fruity powdered drink.

I originally bought this for Mom, but unfortunately she hardly ever wants it, (she generally never wants anything healthy – not even food). I have it once in a while after lunch, or take it when I run out of the Jigsaw tablets.

What about food?

You can eat foods high in Magnesium, but remember that if you have a deficiency you will need more than a handful of spinach to solve the problem.

I recently started a new journey with Dr. Christopher and his Kidney Formula and his Blood Stream Formula supplements.

I started about 2 weeks ago and have about 4 weeks more to go before completing the program.

I have long been a fan of Dr. Christopher’s Formulas since my nutritionist introduced me to his Lower Bowel Formula about 6 years ago.

At the time it was a critical part of a new health regimen that was primarily intended to rid my body of toxins. Part of this process includes clearing the way so that the digestive system can easily push out the bad stuff.

Amazon Image The Lower Bowel Formula was one of those supplements that you took and immediately noticed. Some things you barely notice or maybe even not notice…. Lower Bowel Formula wasn’t like this.

When I followed the directions my nutritionist gave me and took properly after each meal, the Lower Bowel Formula set my system on a reset and helped me get used to eliminating regularly almost after every meal.

I went from 1 bowel movement (2 max) a day to 3 or 4.

Even after I stopped taking them I had trained my bowels to eliminate more often.

Along with the other things I was doing on this health and nutrition program I could really feel a huge difference in my well being. I’ll save a detailed description of that adventure for another time, but I just wanted to reinforce the fact I respect Dr. Christopher and his unique method of grouping herbs together into formulas to accomplish certain goals.

I was doing research on ZINC, which I have been taking for quite a few years now as part of my health regimen, and was distrurbed by some of the results showing on Google.

Zinc is amazing and helps a lot of people keep healthy!

Among the articles listed included ridiculous ones including Webmd’s shitty titled article “Too Much Zinc Linked to Prostate Cancer – WebMD”

This is just one of the reasons you need to be careful with Google results because a lot of the junk at the top after recent algo changes features mainstream sites like Mayo and WebMD which in my opinion publish a lot of garbage.

Don’t believe me? Read this article on ZINC to get the real lowdown.

I’ve included an excerpt where they cite how many mainstream news sources ONLY pickup the NEGATIVE studies on vitamins.

“Mainstream media, which is supported by Big Pharma advertising dollars, will often take nutrient-related “negative” studies and trumpet them in their headlines, while ignoring important information about how commonly used drugs are injuring and killing hundreds of thousands of individuals every year. There is extreme media bias as well as health care professional bias against dietary supplements that is part of a distorted reality which interferes with individuals improving their health or staying healthy.”

We need to really be more careful about what we’re giving to our pets!

This turned into a longer article than originally intended, as I started to analyze the listed ingredients in the top selling “probiotics” type product I found on Amazon.com

I read the ingredients and was disgusted.

I personally think that this is just one example of many where our pets and us are getting shafted by the big pet food corps that are trying to sell us as much crap as possible to generate easy profits.

It’s really not much different than all the processed foods being sold and all the corners that are being cut in order for them to produce cheap food that is easy to sell and has a huge profit margin.

That’s why I am a fanatical ingredients label reader. I must know what is in the food!

So today I saw this best selling pet health product on amazon that described itself as:

“Purina FortiFlora Canine Nutritional Supplement contains the beneficial microorganisms found naturally in your dog’s digestive system to help manage and shorten episodes of diarrhea. Common causes of diarrhea for dogs and puppies include food changes, antibiotic therapy, and environmental stress.”

I had to take a closer look at it. I first started by looking at the ingredients which are in a photo at the product page on amazon:

Purina Veterinary Diets Fortiflora Canine, 30 Sachets Per Box

http://www.amazon.com/Purina-Veterinary-Diets-Fortiflora-Sachets/dp/B001650NNW/

If you look at the label and study the ingredients you will see the shitty ingredients.

I do not see where the “flora” are in the ingredients… They say in their description: ”

  • Contains a guaranteed amount of live active cultures”

Really???

OK – let’s analyze the ingredients – it’s a top selling high volume product and apparently a LOT of pet owners are feeding their pets this product where the FIRST INGREDIENT LISTED IS: ANIMAL DIGEST

ANIMAL DIGEST….. hmmmm…. is that like “NATURAL FLAVORS”???

What the hell is that? I looked it up and according to wikipedia it’s garbage from animal remains that have not yet undergone “decomposition”.

“Animal digest is a common ingredient used in pet foods. As defined by the Association of American Feed Control Officials, digest is produced by the chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean animal tissue that has not undergone decomposition. These animal tissues may not include hair, horns, teeth, hooves, and feathers, with the exclusion of trace amounts that are unavoidable even after acceptable processing methods.[1]

According to the FDA, a digest is an additive that has been treated with heat, enzymes, or also acids to produce a concentrated product intended as a natural flavoring. Pet food may legally be labelled as “Chicken Flavored” regardless of the percentage of chicken-derived product it contains, so long as the chicken flavoring is deemed “perceptible.”[2]

If a product is labeled as “flavored” by a certain type of meat, the digest it contains must have been produced from tissues pertaining to the listed animal species. Chicken flavored food must be flavored with chicken digest.[1]”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_digest

Now – I don’t know about you – but I would not want to give my beloved pet animal parts leftovers – possibly rotting. I don’t care HOW MUCH they treat ANIMAL PARTS with ACID – it’s CRAP and it’s the FIRST INGREDIENT LISTED on this probiotics type health product for dogs.

ANIMAL DIGEST is the FIRST INGREDIENT of a “probiotic flora” product they describe as “beneficial microorganisms found naturally in your dog’s digestive system”

Is it just me or is that a WAR CRIME?

If you want your dog to have better digeston you don’t necessarily want extra ingredients like ground up animal parts that haven’t quite decomposed yet.

Me – I would think a few strains of probiotics would be what the pet needs – not a highly processed packet of animal digest powder.

But then again – this is the kind of thing you’d expect from the big pet food companies who are out to make the most profit on a mass scale with the highest margin.

Grinding up shit that humans can’t be fed and making it into a meal/powder that they sell as an ingredient for pets – to me that’s despicable.

Also – calling it ANIMAL DIGEST in the ingredients HIDES what they have processed and what chemicals they used to process.

Recently my neighbors horse was put to sleep because it had a fast growing cancer tumor. It was put to sleep on a hot Friday and it’s smelly body laid there out in the street in 90 degree + temps until a few days later on a Monday morning when it was picked up.

It smelled awful. It was truly disgusting to se the dead horse much less smell it for days until it was picked up.

The spot where it laid still smells rancid – several weeks after that.

Now what I want to know – is it possible for a horse like that to end up at a meat factory and it’s parts treated to be used and called ANIMAL DIGEST?

I’ve seen a meat factory where they bring in truck loads of dead animals – all kinds – and who knows what they end up in…

ANIMAL DIGEST could be any kind of animal. It could be sick animals. Animals with horns. Who knows…. I find this possibility very disturbing.

What governing agencies are protecting us consumers?

They’re making it too easy for the companies to grind up their animal parts and package that crap as food and health products and hide what the ingredients really are.

So back to the ingredients…

The fact that ANIMAL DIGEST is the first ingredient listed also shows it is the DOMINANT INGREDIENT in the packets. Not the FLORA part.

That expensive powder pack is mostly ground up animal parts. That is why the protein is so high.

If that’s not enough – among the other garbage listed in the ingredients (imagine what is NOT listed) is BREWERS YEAST.

What is BREWERS YEAST doing in a pet product?

They use this crap to make beer. It’s a YEAST. I don’t want my pets getting MORE YEAST – I want them to get LESS YEAST.

I mean IF you are giving your dogs PROBIOTICS there is a good chance you are doing it because they have health issues and my guess it is related to YEAST, MOLD AND FUNGUS.

In particlular the problem is somehow related to MYCOTOXINS (which is what happens to yeast when beer or alcohol is made).

Why include BREWERS YEAST? I will not consume any products that has YEAST listed.

Here is a quote from Doug Kaufmann about brewers yeast as it applies to humans and his antifungal phase 1 diet:

“There are mixed reports regarding the consumption of mushrooms, brewer’s yeast, and kombucha tea. While some studies report their nutritive qualities, other studies speak to their risks. We always monitor the latest research, and our current conclusion is that when one is dealing with fungal issues, it is wise to remove anything from our diets that has fungal components. Therefore, we avoid consuming mushrooms, kombucha, brewer’s yeast, and the like.”

http://knowthecause.com/index.php/recipes/16-know-the-cause-content

OK next we have the ingredient enterococcus faecium which wikipedia says “may also be pathogenic, causing diseases such as neonatal meningitis or endocarditis.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterococcus_faecium

Uh… pathogenic????

By the way, according to Merriam Webster the definition of pathonegenic is:

causing or capable of causing disease

Not exactly a vote of confidence.

I think enterococcus faecium is the ONLY active “probiotic” flora type ingredient that makes this product do it’s thing as no other strains are listed in the ingredients – but me personally I would prefer NOT to give my pet something that was potentially pathogenic.

So where are all the live organisms?

There are no other strains of probiotics on the ingredients label other than enterococcus faecium – so I can assume it was just that single possibly pathogenic ingredient that they refer to as “beneficial microorganisms found naturally in your dog’s digestive system”.

So – if you asked me – this popular bestselling pet product is NOT something I would feel good about giving to my pet.

Simply the excessive ANIMAL DIGEST ingredient makes me feel bad about this.

Consumers need to rise up and insist these big pet food companies stop from hiding stuff in processed ingredients and stop using cheap worse than pet grade ingredients.

I’m sick of big companies selling us moldy grains and garbage ingredients – especially when the food is intended just for pets.

As it is they use all the moldy grains they can’t use for human food and put them in feeds for animals and even pet foods. That in itself is a crime.

We need to be more aware of what the ingredients are and how the food is processed – both for human grade and pet grade.

People are getting hip to what the ingredients are in the foods we give our pets. Especially with all the pet food recalls and contaminants (poison) being found in the stuff sold for pets, people are being more careful.

Now – I am not saying this Purina Veterinary Diets Fortiflora Canine product is going to harm your pet or kill it or not even work as intended – I am just saying that me personally – when I read the ingredients I am sickened by what I see and I could never give it to my own pets.

That said – it’s interesting to see the variety of reviews on amazon for this product. It does get some good reviews. It also gets some really bad ones.

So – if nothing else I hope this has made you aware that looking at and understanding the ingredients is very important – especially with pet products. We can’t just blindly trust that the corporations care as much as we do about what our pets eat.

Is Sugar A Grain?

I really want to be accurate so I can say that SUGAR is a GRAIN but I am finding conflicting info on sugar being a grain.

According to wikipedia it is in the same family as wheat which is definitely a grain…

“Sugarcane belongs to the grass family (Poaceae), an economically important seed plant family that includes maize, wheat, rice, and sorghum and many forage crops. “

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugarcane

Accoding to Doug Kaufmann – his Phase One Diet page says sugar is a grain:

“While on the Phase one Diet, we avoid all grains – including corn, and sugar, both of which are grains. Seeds are different than grains and sometimes seeds are called false grains, or “pseudo-grains.” Seeds such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, and chia seeds are permitted on our Phase one diet. On Phase two, moderate use of certain grains like oatmeal or flour tortillas is allowed while continuing to eat pseudo-grains like buckwheat, amaranth and quinoa-again, in moderation.”

Me, personally, I still drink coffee every morning when I get up.

A coffee habit can be unhealthy in a lot of ways. Not necessarily the coffee itself, but more so it’s all the junk we put in coffee. Yes – I know – a lot of respected people say don’t drink it – or drink it in moderation, but there are health benefits to coffee and after all there are those of us who like it.

I’ll save the detailed conversation about coffee itself for another time, but I would like to point out that if you are going to drink coffee, you should consider using it without sugar and instead use heavy cream (aka whipping cream) to make it taste good.

Personally I have managed to consume coffee without sugar for at least 5 years. That was one of the hardest health transitions I ever had to make. I loved my coffee with sugar.

Worse than consuming just bad old sugar in my coffee I was also one of those using fake creamers and even worse those flavored cream concoctions that tasted so good (like candy).

That was back when I though drinking diet sodas was being healthy.

But as I learned more about nutrition and especially how sugar in particlular was causing a lot of health problems I started making an effort to eliminate it from my diet.

Around the time I learned about the Phase One Diet and Know The Cause I gave up drinking sodas completely (even Ginger Ale) and I began substituting honey for sugar in my coffee.

I didn’t think honey was exactly “Phase One Diet” friendly, but I thought it was better than using sugar.

I also tried agave nectar in my coffee, although I didn’t really connect with that.

Thanks to Doug Kaufman and some information I have learned from him and the guests on his show and elsewhere, I have found that coffee tastes good without any sweetener if you use cinnamon or unsweetened chocolate (pure cocoa powder) along with a heavy unsweetened cream (at Trader Joes it is called Whipping Cream).

Cinnamon by the way is anti-fungal as are a lot of the foods and vitamins that are good for us :’>

Is cream healthy? It certainly is healthier than artificial creamers and flavored garbage for coffee.

I am curious because from time to time I have noticed that cream (yet more often milk and dairy) gets slammed in articles and diet instructions.

Since unsweetened whipping cream is considered OK in moderation on the Phase One and Phase Two diets and used in many Phase 1 friendly recipes by Doug Kaufmann himself, I thought it would be interesting to research if there are any health benefits to cream.

Heavy Cream or Whipping Cream is basically the stuff that rises to the top when milk is made. IT must not be very heavy or it’d sink… but it is heavier in fat – saturated fat, which by the way does have health benefits.

I am pretty sure that cream is generally not pasteurized, which in itself is considered by many to be healthier than drinking milk which is pasteurized.

I know – there has been a big campaign to tell Americans that fat is bad for us – but now in 2014 and beyond a lot of doctors are changing their opinions about good fats and bad fats and are realizing that our bodies and especially our brains need some good saturated fat to operate at our peak.

Heavy Cream by the way can be consumed by a lot of people who are otherwise “lactose intolerant” without any digestive issues.

Cream has practically no carbs. That’s good, right?

It is also said that heavy cream because of the high saturated fat can suppress your appetite. That can be helpful.

Heavy cream is certainly healthier than polyunsaturated fats in vegetable oils. That’s good.

It has a good amount of calcium and phsopherous which our bodies need. That’s good.

Cream is also good for people who are active and need energy (kids especially).

And perhaps the best thing about cream – especially in coffee – is that it has a sweet taste that can help us stay away from sugar. That’s good!

Now – having pointed out those things – there still is a faction of people who would rather have you drink skim milk than consume cream. But those people still think saturated fat is all bad and harmful. In my opinion and many high profile doctors and nutritionists who believe we need to eliminate as much saturated fat as possible are flat out giving BAD ADVICE.

Who do you believe??? I’ve puts some good links at the bottom of this – read them for yourself and decide.

Me – I think grandma had it right with a lot of the foods they ate. Butter, cream and such was not conisdered unhealthy back in the days. Maybe they had it right and all these high tech processed food companies have it wrong.

In any event – follow some of the links below and do a little research yourself before you write off cream and saturated fats in your diet.

The intention of the Phase One Diet by Doug Kaufmann is to starve fungus out of our bodies by NOT giving it what it wants and that is why there is a list of acceptable foods to consume while on the diet.

In general it’s sugar and carbs that are universally not allowed however dairy also has limitation. Here are the suggested dairy foods that are allowed on Phase One:

Organic Butter, Organic Yogurt, (use the following very sparingly) cream cheese, unsweetened whipping cream, real sour cream.

Getting Started On the Phase One Diet – explains the foods that are allowed and includes a section on milk and dairy where it says “milk is not what it was 50 years ago”.

Foods High In Saturated Fats are Not The Enemy – hey – this is a must read!

I’ve dug up some relevant articles that discuss the importance of Magnesium in our diets and reveal the symptoms that may show we are deficient in this all important mineral.

It’s really quite common to be deficient in magnesium. In fact – if you have a yeast imbalance it’s almost certain it is affecting your magnesium levels.

I’ve included a few excerpts, but you should try to read these articles if you can!

“The typical American diet, which is rich in fat, sugar, salt, synthetic vitamin D, phosphates, protein, and supplemented calcium, not only is deficient in magnesium but actually increases the need for magnesium in the body.”

http://www.ancient-minerals.com/magnesium-deficiency/causes-depletion/

“Most doctors and laboratories don’t even include magnesium status in routine blood tests. Thus, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though studies show that the majority of Americans are deficient in magnesium.”

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/magnesium-deficiency-symptoms-and-diagnosis

“Various data sources, including the US government, suggest that the number of Americans now deficient in magnesium is approximately 90%, with some data suggesting the number is even higher. The mineral, responsible for all the electrical impulses of the body, is critically needed for normal muscle and nerve functions, healthy heart rhythms, strong bones, a healthy immune system, normal blood sugar, normal blood pressure, normal brain function and a healthy GI tract. In short, while we can live with minimal amounts of this mineral, we cannot live well or in a state of optimum health and happiness without it.”

http://rense.com/general83/fount.htm

“The master mineral magnesium is missing from most of our topsoil, leaving the vast majority, perhaps 80%, with a failure to meet even the USDA’s recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of 240 to 420 millgrams (based on age). It’s important to note that government RDAs are known to be well below optimum levels. Many experts think our magnesium levels should be twice the amount.”

http://naturalsociety.com/16-magnesium-deficiency-symptoms-signs-low-levels/

“An often ignored but really just as common surprise on the list of top magnesium deficiency causes is an overgrowth of candida. A prolific fungus among us that occurs naturally in the body but can get too comfortable and interfere with body processes, one of those being the way the digestive system uses and processes magnesium. You may find that many symptoms of candida overgrowth are similar to those of magnesium deficiency, such as constipation, and dietary changes can also remedy this interesting entry on the list of most common yet ignored magnesium deficiency causes.”

http://www.enaturalhealing.com/2-most-common-yet-ignored-magnesium-deficiency-causes/

“Candida sufferers are often deficient in magnesium. This is because the Candida yeast interferes with the way that magnesium is taken up in your intestine. A deficiency in magnesium can result in fatigue, immune disorders, leg cramps, headaches, low energy and fibromyalgia.”

Yes – it is true – soy beans and almost all kinds of soy related products have toxins in then that can cause all kinds of health problems.

I personally have been avoiding soy as much as I can for a few years now.

I know it’s hard to believe that soy can be bad for you – there are so many loud claims of the health benefits of soy, even by the FDA, that surely it must be good for you.

Sorry to burst any bubbles, but there is too much evidence that soy is bad for you.

Don’t take my word for it – go to Google and search for soy toxins and just look at all the information presented about the health concerns about soy. It’s toxic stuff that causes big trouble in a lot of people!

Here is one article in particular I think everyone should read. Read this and decide for yourself – or do more research. It’s important!

9 Steps To Perfect Health – #1: Don’t Eat Toxins

The most important part is near the end of the article is about soy. This article covers grains and other sources of toxins too – all imnportant info – but the soy discussion at the end is mind blowing.

Make sure you read that far!

If you find this soy toxin thing interesting and want to know more – simply type in SOY TOXINS in your favorite search engine and look at all the articles and info presented about this. Tons of convincing info.

I will always take butter over margarine. I prefer whole real food to some other kind of fake food manufactured spread. The butter is healthier than margarine.

But how many times have you heard people tell you that you should NOT eat butter and that fat is bad for you?

Ummm… the body needs fat. It doesn’t need trans fat.

Sorry – but facts show that some fat is better than other fats. In fact some processed factory manufactured fats are downright dangerous and it’s not the pure kind of fat but rather heavily processed trans-fats.

Is butter really bad for you?

Will a little butter on a slice of bread or a dab of butter melted on a bowl of vegetables harm you?

Doesn’t pure natural unsalted butter have some health benefits?

Now – I do understand some people do not like dairy foods or have tolerance issues – that’s different. I’m not trying to force butter or sour cream on you.

I am just trying to make a point that some fats are healthier and safer to consume than others. The fat in butter is much better than the fat in margarine!

Are nuts too fatty and going to cause you harm by eating them? They do have fat you know…

Are all saturated fats going to to help kill you or cause a heart attack?

The answers you’ll get from these questions depends largely on WHO is answering those questions.

If it is a lobby group for a fast food related industry – they’ll try to make all fats seem bad which only confuses the issue in which trans fats are proven to be unhealthy.

Sure – they’d like for you to believe that margarine is healthier than butter – but they chemically treat the fat and then bleach it to make it look more like butter. At least butter is pure and whole food like gramma used to make.

Speaking of Grandma, the fact is that heart disease was not a major problem 100 years ago. Could it be because they ate whole foods and didn’t consume all kinds of foods created in the lab and manufactured en masses in the factory?

Well – if you want to know more about saturated fats and poly unsatured fats and trans-fats and whether it is ok to eat foods that have fat – you’ll definitely want to watch this 53 minute presentation by an acclaimed professor of surgery who says we should enjoy eating saturated fats. He says they’re good for us.

I agree. I think you will too after you watch the video!

Enjoy Eating Saturated Fats: They’re Good for You. Donald W. Miller, Jr.
