Two evidence-based healthy eating patterns: More Research; not News


‘Participants received individual, in-person counseling from nutritionists on how to adhere to each of the two evidence-based healthy eating patterns. The vegetarian diet excluded meat and fish but included dairy and eggs.’ (emphasis mine)

‘This was the first “intervention study that follows the principles of evidence-based medicine, in a general population at low risk of cardiovascular disease, that compared these two beneficial diets,” Sofi told theheart.org | Medscape Cardiology.’

A healthy diet should be “nutrient dense; rich in vegetables and fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts; low in refined grains and commercially processed foods with added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium; sustainable; culturally relevant; and enjoyable.”

‘Both diets had similar low calories and consisted of 50% to 55% carbohydrates, 25% to 30% fat, and 15% to 20% protein.

The participants ate a similar number of servings of cereals, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, sweets, and olive oil on both diets, but on the vegetarian diet they ate more legumes, nuts, eggs, and dairy products, as well as flaxseed and avocado (to compensate for the lack of essential fatty acids from fish).

Both diets were similarly effective for weight loss. After 3 months, the participants lost a mean of 1.88 kg and 1.77 kg while on the vegetarian and Mediterranean diets, respectively.’

Although these diets should be investigated in larger studies in other populations, this research suggests that “a low-calorie healthy vegetarian or Mediterranean diet pattern may offer a possible solution to the ongoing challenges to prevent and manage obesity and cardiovascular diseases,” Anderson said.

Why Mainstream Medicine is Clueless

“The next step in this process is to come up with a drug that can target this receptor,”

It is because that is how they think!

That quote came from here…

The answer is actually right there in the bold type, but they though they have eyes, they can not see it.

Benzodiazepine Harms Overlooked, Especially in Older Adults (Medscape Article)


Nora MacReady, February 22, 2018

“As attention remains focused on opioid abuse, another drug epidemic rages outside the spotlight: inappropriate prescription of benzodiazepines.

In an editorial published in the February 22 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Anna Lembke, MD, Jennifer Papac, MD, and Keith Humphreys, PhD, from Stanford University School of Medicine in California, point out that from 1996 to 2013, the number of adults who filled a benzodiazepine prescription rose from 8.1 million to 13.5 million, an increase of 67%. During roughly the same time (1999-2015), deaths from benzodiazepine overdose increased from 1135 to 8791.

‘Despite this trend, the adverse effects of benzodiazepine overuse, misuse, and addiction continue to go largely unnoticed,’ they write.

Concurrent opioid use figured in three quarters of the overdoses, ‘which may explain why, in the context of a widely recognized opioid problem, the harms associated with benzodiazepines have been overlooked,’ the editorialists state. They cite data showing that coprescription rates nearly doubled between 2001 and 2013, going from 9% to 17%.”

Depression, Arginine & Nitric Oxide

I have talked about nitric oxide before, in connection with the JuicePlus+ product ‘Vineyard Blend’ capsules (they now come in Chewable too!!), and the grooves of your tongue – of all things.

This new Study takes in the amino acid link to the story.

The logic is the same as always: be careful when killing things, you might kill good things (mouthwashes in this case are what come to mind); and whole foods are the best way to get your nutrients (JuicePlus+ in this case comes to mind).

Not What Everyone Wants to Hear: Protein in the Diet

The message of the meat eaters has gotten through to the general public: when you ask about what they eat, they know the answers they are ‘supposed’ to give and mention meat, meat, meat. Paleo is popular.

And, while it may not be a fad, it misses the mark by a mile as to the healthiest way to eat. Here, the Blue Zone take on things lines up with recent research: eat vegetables first, then nuts, grains, seeds and beans – that is where to get the majority of your protein.

Not a popular message, but not a new one either. Many will prefer to follow the voices that tickle their ears and tempt their eyes – willingly hypnotized into choices that will cost them dearly down the road. Follow the ‘narrow path’, not the ‘broad road that leads to destruction’.
