'Forks Over Knives': A Sign of Changing Times

Commented Jun 5, 2011 at 09:28:23 in Healthy Living

“im not sure i want to live longer in a diaper or drooling with dementia from stroking out. think about it”

DinkSinger on Jun 5, 2011 at 12:38:57

“It's a huge dilemma. Most of us don't want to die and also don't want to get old, but those are the only two alternatives. Your best bet to avoid dementia is to smoke, have a bad diet, drive a car from the early 1950s, remove the smoke and CO detectors from your home, do not get medical care, and inform those around you that if anything happens they should not call 911. This will lower your life expectancy down towards the levels of the 1950s, but not all the way because, for example, our roads and highways are much safer and air and water pollution have been greatly reduced.

There is no question that living longer increases your risk of dementia, not so much from stroke as from Alzheimer's. Even so, the odds are against developing it. According to a 2003 study, among Americans age 85 and older the incidence of dementia was only about 30%. The incidence for those 95 and older was 58%. Even for those who make it to 65, the odds of living to 90, are quite low, 17% for men and 31% for women.”

“if steak hasn't been shown to lead to inflammation its because the meat and dairy industry hasn't paid to publish a study that proves it. we all know we need fats- but why should we have to ingest pesticides, antibiotics, bovine growth hormone, and estrogen to get it?”

DietOfScience on May 28, 2011 at 09:31:23

“HuffPo only allows 250 word comments so I couldn't really get into mass produced versus organic foods. You are correct (but you should lump in many produce sources as well as far as chemical agents are concerned). If one can get meats and produce from organic sources, I highly recommend it.”

“heres a even better idea- if you have to look at the label to see whats in it, dont even pick it up. stick with whole foods. say no to animal and artificial.”

Shawn Makinson on May 31, 2011 at 09:43:24

“Totally agree, I just think its not likely for people to jump straight into whole foods only over night. I bet theres even a good chance they will need to switch where the shop to get more of a variety or even better look for a real local farmers market. Consistent and frequent change in the right direction will take them/us there.”

“perhaps you should read deeper into the good dr's findings, they are not talking about vegans and vegetarians, they advocate a plant based whole foods diet. theres nothing artificial or processed in a whole food. what kind of plant does a fake meat product grow on?”

“Actually, in the diet/nutrition world, "plant-based" is code for "no meat or other animal-based foods." Campbell is a vegan proselytizer. Both of these guys have a clear anti-meat agenda if you read their other work.”

“ive said it before and ill say it again, this is hype, marketing by the gluten free industry. trying to convince people that they might be one of the 10 % that is sensitive. replacing one type of packaged, processed food with another. why else would only 1% of the population need all these gluten free processed products”

“I think more than 1% has allergies to wheat and other foods. They just go undiagnosed. I'm 35 years old and only discovered a few months ago that I was allergic to wheat, tomatoes, rice, malt and peanuts. After years of being sick, I went to an allergist who tested my blood - (RAST allergy test) that's how I discovered that the food I was eating was making me sick. It only took a week after changing my diet to begin feeling healthy again.”

“If you had my stomach issues before I went Gluten Free you would eat your words.. I wouldn't wish my 'former stomach pains' on anyone & running to the bathroom right after eating was a horror too especially in restaurants or other public eating places..”

Gluten: Friend or Foe?

“im not gluten sensitive, but im thinking of becoming one, its the newest thing you know. and there's all these diseases you can get if you dont buy the gluten free stuff. wow, what a windfall for the industry..”

KT31 on Apr 1, 2011 at 11:08:30

“No, I think that you've proven that your insensitive in general, not just to gluten. It may be a fad for some, but lots of people have a real problem - up to 18 million of us in the U.S. are gluten sensitive or celiacs, according to research published last month. It isn't just a fad for those people. Personally, I appreciate being able to eat an occasional cupcake or slice of pizza - though being a celiac I generally choose naturally gluten-free foods like rice and corn tortillas. Be glad you can eat what you want without getting sick - no normal person would go gluten free if they didn't have to. Comments like yours aren't helpful to anyone.”

“the highest quality protein is human flesh, but it doesnt mean we should eat it. and all that extra bulk and fluff in your beans-- its called fiber and you need it. ask your protein pushing physician how much of that you need”

Benjo333 on Mar 13, 2011 at 16:11:53

“Most adults need about 20 to 30 grams of fiber...

You must be one of the VEGANGELICALS...”

Moosington on Mar 13, 2011 at 14:55:31

“To say "all that extra bulk" is fiber is blatantly false. Sure, a portion of the carb count in beans includes dietary fiber, but there are absolutely a decent amount of complex carbs, as well. If you were to eat a whole can of straight up black beans, you'd be getting about 20 grams of protein, but still 30+ grams of non-fiber carbs. I'm not saying beans are a bad source of protein, because if you utilize them right, they are an excellent centerpiece for a meal, but they are not ideal if you are just looking for an efficient protein boost.”

IndepBob on Mar 13, 2011 at 07:11:24

“"Highest quality protein in human flash?"

Ridiculous, unless you really want to consume concentrate of all the pollutants, quasi-hormones, toxins, in our environment.”

oceanpine on Mar 13, 2011 at 05:04:24

“Yuck, what a pointless comment (and likely untrue as well). Anyway, whey protein is the best. Make sure it is organic or as close as possible. Beans are an incomplete source but when combined with brown rice (or wild rice) are A-Ok. If you buy organic flaxseeds and grind them in a small coffee grinder just before eating, you get fresh oils and lots of great fiber.(Pure flaxseed oil can become rancid so best to avoid it.) It is great on salads or on cereal.”

For one thing the cheapest thing to buy in the medi are vegetables. And people don't make up excuses about preparing a meal as opposed to buying it ready made.”

This is an invalid argument known as "Affirming the consequent".

Logic 101 - propositional fallacy:

1: If P, then Q.
2: Q.
3: Therefore, P

If an orange is a fruit that does not mean that all fruit are oranges.

If glucose is a source of energy that does not mean all sources of energy are glucose.
