We Say Calcium, You Say ?

We Say Calcium, You Say ?
If we were to say the words "calcium," "protein" or "iron" what images or words would that bring to your mind? If you were to answer milk, eggs, and beef, you're not alone. Most of us are not aware that we have fallen for the clever marketing strategies used by big food industries. This blog...

Healthy Food = Healthy Colon

Healthy Food = Healthy Colon
We're sure you will agree that colon polyps aren't exactly a popular topic of conversation. However, because they increase our risk of colon cancer (and over 35% of those eating the typical American diet have polyps) it's important for us to discuss them. Notice in the above graph from Dr. T. Colin Campbell's China Study,...

"Criminal Behavior of the Pharmaceutical Industry"

"Criminal Behavior of the Pharmaceutical Industry"
Dr. John McDougall has stated numerous times that he's "not trying to win a popularity contest" or be "politically correct." His passion for seeking and presenting valuable truths is highly commended. We applaud his boldness and dedication for exposing hidden practices in the health care industry.

Danger, Will Robinson, Nutrition Facts!

Danger, Will Robinson, Nutrition Facts!

A new proposed Nutrition Facts label will provide some good information that has been missing but also removes some extremely important information from the Nutrition Facts label.

  1. FDA proposing adding the display of Added Sugars which we commend!
  2. FDA proposing removing the display of Calories from Fat which we lament!

Why do we care?
With the removal of the Calories from Fat we will no longer be able to calculate the Percentage of Calories from Fat (AKA Calorie Density) which is important information to aid people in combating our growing obesity epidemic. We have always wished for the Percentage of Calories from Fat to be ADDED to the Nutrition Facts label. Up until now this values has NOT been displayed but could be calculated by dividing the Calories from Fat by the Total Calories. Now the plan is to remove the values which allow us to do the calculation.

Don't be a Processed Person

Don't be a Processed Person

You will absolutely enjoy watching the short video clips from the eye-opening documentary Processed People (from Veg Source) featuring interviews from many of our nation's leading health and nutrition experts. There are a total of 14 clips, each between one-two minutes in length. Plant-based health advocates such as John Robbins, Jeff Novick, Doctors John McDougall, Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., Jay Gordon, Joel Fuhrman, Pam Popper, Milton Mills, and Jeffrey Masson discuss what we can do to prevent becoming "Processed People."

Processed People is a 40-minute snapshot of how our nation's "health care system" has become a profit-driven "sick care system." This system has become very successful in selling sickness by adopting a pill or surgical procedure mentality to solve every health care problem.
