    It's good to see national news is starting to figure it out. Saw this on CNN yesterday:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/31/health/heart-disease-statistics-report/index.html

    I like Dr. Esselstyn's exhaustive list of veggies to eat.

    Enjoy,

    Ken

No mention that it is what you eat that is the issue. No one in the mainstream media is saying it's all the meat and dairy you eat! I expect this is the pharma industry wanting a new revenue stream by getting everyone on heart pills.  More ...

    Sad story

    Found this story on CNN:https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/30/health/rising-drug-costs/index.html

    This story is so sad on so many levels - even beyond the insulin price gouging subject of the article.

    I find it sad that his control is so poor that he needs an alarm to alert him of hypoglycemia (low blood-sugar). But I'm sure he is not alone. This style of rote after-the-fact control and hope for the best is what is traditional, as opposed to a personal before-the-fact totally in control method geared to synchronize with life's variables. Fancy devices should not be necessary.

    I've promised a book on that method (The SPP method) and I'm still working on it. I don't want to leave anything out, so it's taking much longer than I imagined...

    Thanks,

    Ken

    I think there are too many variables involved to make a judgement from "reading" about people who "tried" vegan diets & started losing their teeth, etc. I have been vegan for the past 30 years and my dental health improved since the change and still no issues in my late 60's. I know may elderly vegans with no dental losses or issues - but I know lots of people who consume milk, etc. who suffer extensive dental issues.
    Also, the need for milk in order to maintain a healthy skeleton is counter to biology; milk is not a natural food for any mammal past infancy. Then there are people, like Ruth Heidrich whose osteoporosis went away after becoming vegan. And for what it's worth, my wife and I are the only members of our extended families (in our age group) that does not suffer some sort of skeletal issue. We are the only vegans in our families.

    Hi Denise,

    I would like to add that out of all the many vegans that I know, very few are dedicated to healthy eating. A large population of vegans are vegan for animal rights concerns and not for health. Most vegans that are vegan for health, seem to think that "a little bit (of something unhealthy) won't matter". My question is: what is "a little bit"? I see health oriented vegans often eating oil, high fats, heavily processed foods and even foods that are not entirely vegan. Many health oriented vegans still eat (what I believe to be unhealthy) foods they believe are healthy because they are advertised to be healthy; following advertising firm created terms like, "heart healthy".

    I would like to think that when connected to religion, the dedication would be a matter of belief. I have found that belief is a very powerful driving force, far more powerful than knowledge or designated supposed to's.

    I have also learned to be careful about "studies". In my career field of electronics design, studies are a routine basic element of design development. However, these studies are performed by people and people are inherently biased. It's not a choice. With that, In design engineering; testing is a required element of the study to learn what is real. In that testing, however, all variables must be accounted for and as many removed as possible, because all variables influence the result. This makes me untrusting of any study with data derived from a survey(s).

    Just my two cents,
    Ken
