Eating Wheat Gluten Causes Symptoms In Some People Who Don't Have Celiac Disease "I don't expect everyone to benefit from avoiding gluten. But for those who are really sensitive, it can make a huge difference. Digestive, autoimmune and neurological disorders associate most strongly with gluten sensitivity. Avoiding gluten can be a fruitful thing to try in cases of mysterious chronic illness."–Stephan Guyenet, Whole Health Source
Nutrition and Diet Insanity
I was speaking to a friend who is overweight and he informed me that his father lost his sight due to diabetes. When I asked my friend about his own diet he realized it wasn't good, but didn't really know which foods (or non-foods) he should avoid and which he should get more of. When I asked him what his plan is to avoid the same fate as his father he really didn't have one.
Last week I was speaking to a gastroentorologist who noticed I was reading The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. He asked what I was reading and when I answered him he looked confused and mumbled, "I've never heard of it." I answered, "Oh, really?", out loud, but on the inside I said, "No kidding." The doctor, who happens to be an excellent doctor, has a huge, protruding abdomen. He's a nice man and a smart man, but he doesn't appear healthy at all. In fact, he looks like a candidate for diabetes or heart disease.
There is more diet and nutrition information available today than at any other time in history. The information is available at our fingertips, yet the rate of disease and poor health is absolutely incredible.
The government Food Pyramid recommends grain as the food group that should be consumed the most. What?????????
"Diabesity (obesity + diabetes) affects more than one billion people worldwide, including 100 million Americans and 50% of Americans over 65.
- More than half of Americans are overweight, and a full one-third are clinically obese.
- Recent reports suggest that one-third of people born in 2010 will develop diabetes at some point in their lives.
- 9 out of 10 Americans will develop high blood pressure before they die.
- 4 out of 10 people who die each year in the U.S. die of heart disease, and rates of heart disease are projected to double in the next 50 years.
- Rates of infertility are expected to double in the next decade.
- According to the World Health Organization, depression is now the leading cause of disability, affecting more than 120 million people worldwide.
The above statistics are staggering. Why does it seem like the above statistics are just being accepted as if there is nothing anyone can do?
Why aren't more people doing their own research?
Why are there people who are informed yet not taking proper action?
I have some thoughts, but what do you think?
