The Greatest Threat to Americans

Republican candidates have been out of touch with change, but they’re not the only ones that could improve their lifestyles. The presidential election did not return us to the 1950s, but other aspects of our behavior remain primitive. The biggest threat to democracy is corporatism, but that is not the biggest threat to Americans. The biggest threat to Americans is not Iran, global warming, or the economy. Wake up and smell the coffee, it’s what we eat!

The American diet is killing us. The number of people getting cancer has increased from 1 in 33 in 1900 to 1 in 2.5 people today. The US is the country that is ranked #1 for obesity. We were 13% obese in 1962 and in 2010 the CDC reported that 35.7% of adults were found to be obese. Between 1.5 and 2.0 million Americans die every year of heart attacks, cancer, strokes, etc. The primary cause for a majority of diseases running rampant is the American diet.

There is nothing healthy about “meat”. You will most likely die from cancer or heart disease if you eat dead animals. Protein and iron are found in plenty of other foods; foods not full of animal fats. Twenty percent of women and two percent of men are anemic, but that does not make dead animals a healthy choice. Have lab work done when you can.  If you like seafood, you might want to stick with it since it is a source of iron, and the health benefits of the Omega 3s are outstanding.

Do you like to drink milk or eat other forms of cow lactations like cheese and ice cream? Cow lactations are good for turning calves into cows, so what could go wrong? If you consume cow lactations you will most likely die from cancer or heart disease. Furthermore, cow lactations do not prevent osteoporosis, they cause osteoporosis. For more about this, watch “Forks over Knives”. It is a free movie on the Internet at …. http://www.hulu.com/#!watch/279734

It does sound disgusting to eat dead animals, cow lactations, or chicken menstruation ejecta, but for most people eggs are a healthy choice. I often eat veggie omelets with no cheese for breakfast, or will have a couple of chicken menstruation ejecta salad sandwiches for lunch.

Stay away from breads, pizza dough, and pastas that are not whole grain. High levels of gluten will cause you to feel bloated; with up to eight meals stuck in your intestines. Whole plant foods should be in your intestines, because whole plant foods are full of nutrients. Whole plant foods are what will make you feel healthy. There is no need to put a limit on the amount of whole plant foods that you eat. Eating fiber draws fat out of your body, so the more you eat the skinnier you will get.

At the grocery store, look for whole plant foods that look yummy. Don’t go to the departments of dead animals, cow lactations and sticky stuff. Find things like nuts, grapefruit, whole grain cereals or breads, salmon, or sweet potatoes that look yummy. Try to make a smoothie, soup, or a stir-fry. These foods will make you feel better and give you energy.

Americans need to move “forward” by becoming physically and mentally healthy. To be an American that lives a long healthy life, please mostly eat organic whole plant foods, with no meat, no dairy and low gluten. Yes, that means no more pizza. Go for it, or at least please make sure that you have plenty of life insurance.

Heather 60% of your health is based on your genetics, but of the 40% that is environmental, 80% will depend on your diet, while only 20% depends on exercise. I love my doctor but he knows that I eat better than he does, and that my numbers are much better than his. Most doctors will support people who want to become vegetarians or vegans, because they do know that it is extremely healthy. It is just that they themselves have often not gotten around to having a very healthy diet. It is like when a lot of doctors still smoked even though they had become aware of all the data against it. Take Care PS: I should have said 18% of calories come from fat in the "healthiest" chicken. Either way, the point is too much Omega 6 kills a lot of people.

In my extensive research, I've found that the leading cause of 'death' is 'birth'. There is also a distinct possibility that drinking water leads to almost everything. Give me a break! In ALL things - moderation!

Moderation???? :o) And THIS from the Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts/home brewed caffeine junkie, Bob Havey? Am glad you responded, BH.....reminded me that I miss you and your column....and I am now smiling...in moderation, of course!

Hi Pat! Great to hear from you! I would have expected that you'd know that much, if not all of my advice is for OTHERS and DOES NOT apply to me. Apparently, I've been absent from the hallowed halls of Patch for too long, hence your forgetfulness - or a senior moment, perhaps? Keep smiling! It beats the heck out of the alternative. Miss you and your always witty and jocular comments. And for those of you who don't know the meaning of 'jocular' - Google it! It has nothing to do with sports.

The Mass regional editor for Patch only wants people to post here that live close by, but I will still post all over New Hampshire. I was blown away by the NSA whistleblower. You should see this at the Nashua Patch, http://nashua.patch.com/blog_posts/the-governments-file-on-you and from now on please look for me at the New Hampshire Patches or at my website. Thank you, Don Brown (TheGreaterReality.com)
