“In 2005, T. Colin Campbell, PhD and his son Thomas M. Campbell, MD, shared the China Project findings along with additional research with the world in The China Study. This groundbreaking book examined the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer and the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The revised and expanded edition includes new content, statistics, research and information about the changing medical system and how patients stand to benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition. The China Study is hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written.”
Here is my short synopsis on the Paleo diet: HIGHLY HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH!
The overly hyped Paleo diet is the number one cause for the inflammation of joints and tissue in the body, inflammation being the number one cause for disease, including cancer, and is detrimental for your longterm health and physical and mental degeneration later in life. Atherosclerosis sound good as a retirement plan? Premature aging? Then keep eating meat! You are sure to get there! Eating high amounts of protein taxes the organs especially the liver and kidneys, and excessive uric acid is produced, which causes another retirement option: gout!!!
Meat eaters are also prone to excessive anger and emotionality – as the energy derived from meat is considered ‘tamasic’ in Ayurvedic science. Tamasic is anything that contains negative imprints of energy. Think how a food you eat was raised, processed, and treated. As we are all part of the food chain – especially on an energetic quantum level – you are what you eat! Taking the flesh and energy of an abused, animal loaded with antibiotics, hormones, and forced to live in small stalls while force fed unnatural foods, is seriously detrimental to your health! Their cortisol level is really high out of panic at the time of slaughter and their blood coagulates, and when that meat/blood enters your system the unusually high cortisol level stimulates your adrenal glands. When people suffer adrenal stress because of excess adrenal stimulation they can’t sleep, they are hyperactive, they can’t digest well, and of course they are nervous wrecks. Also, think of the most savage and aggressive civilizations and invaders in history. They were excessive meat eaters! Notice the difference in how you feel after you eat a healthy well rounded salad, and a piece of steak. While the meat rots in your system and puts your digestive tract into overdrive, you feel sluggish and full. When you eat live foods, or easily digestible plant protein you feel light and alive. My motto is: Be addicted to your health, not your taste buds!
Want a cure for your insomnia and anxiety? For chronic tiredness, lack of flexibility and agility too? Become vegetarian! Research has shown for decades that vegetarian countries and cultures – think Thailand – are extremely kind, happy, and compassionate. The are also active, mobile people. They weigh less and live longer! The people who have lived the longest, unknown to most who don’t venture to learn anything beyond what’s on the news or on social media, are vegetarian and fruitarians. Yes, there are people who lived and live exclusively on fruits or other botanicals including nuts, and who are centenarians. If you consider yourself a nature lover but eat abused animals who are yelled at and electrocuted so that you can have a nice piece of steak at your favor meat joint, then you are somewhat of a hypocrite. Animals are part of nature! You should love and help them, and maybe you will learn something from these four legged creatures. They have so much to teach us humans! And one last note. Paleo eaters are the top contributors to global warming. You should look that up if it perks your interest, and if you consider yourself to be an environmentalist. So my dear human friends, be kind and wise. Learn about yourself for yourself. And then teach others.
The China Syndrome is one of the most fascinating books ever written about meat eaters, and the effects of meat on the human body and psyche. Get it, and order a salad for dinner!
