PARENTS WANT THE BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN
As parents, we can agree that a child’s physical well-being is the most important factor in a child’s life and that a child cannot survive without food (Why It Is Important To Focus on Children’s Nutrition 1). But we don’t want our children to merely survive, we want a healthy and disease-free future for them.
Based on the Pottenger Cat Study, we can conclude that food consumed directly affect long term health and the future health of generations in a family. Diets heavy on meats have shown to cause early deaths and degenerative diseases.
Is there a diet then that has the power to create healthy long lives?
In the Pottenger Cat Study, it is clear that the diet that prevented degenerative diseases in the cats was also the exact cure for the disease. Is it the same for humans?
FOODS THAT PREVENT AND CURE OUR DISEASES
FROM THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE STUDY ON THE RELATIONSHIP OF DIET AND DISEASE THE CHINA STUDY
Heart disease can be reversed with diet alone.
Breast cancer is related to levels of female hormones in the blood, which are determined by the foods we eat.
Consuming dairy foods can increase the risk of prostrate cancer.
Antioxidants, found in fruits and vegetables, are linked to better mental performance in old age.
Kidney stones can be prevented by a healthy diet.
Type 1 diabetes, one of the most devastating diseases that can befall a child, is convincingly linked to infant feeding practices.
STUDY OF RATS ADMINISTERED AFLATOXIN IN INDIA
Aflatoxin is a carcinogen and administered to 2 groups of rats, one group ate a diet composed of 20% protein and the other group ate only 5%. The evidence shows nutrition is powerful in fighting against cancer.
|AT GROUP 1||RAT GROUP 2|
|Protein % of Diet||20%||5%|
|Evidence of Liver Cancer||100%||0%|
Author of The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, discovered further that “Casein, which makes up 87% of cow’s milk protein, promoted all stages of the cancer process. What type of protein did not promote cancer, even at high levels of intake? The safe proteins were from plants, including wheat and soy… people who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. Even relatively small intakes of animal-based food were associated with adverse effects. People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease… The findings are consistent.”
FROM WELL DOCUMENTED DIET FOR A NEW AMERICA (more statistics here)
Increased risk of breast cancer for women who eat meat daily compared to less than once a week: 3.8 times
Increased risk of fatal ovarian cancer for women who eat eggs 3 or more times a week vs. less than once a week: 3 times
Increased risk of fatal prostate cancer for men who consume meat, cheese, eggs and milk daily vs. sparingly or not at all: 3.6 times.
Average U.S. man’s risk of death from heart attack: 50 percent
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat: 15 percent
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat, dairy or eggs: 4 percent
Amount you reduce risk of heart attack if you reduce consumption of meat, dairy products and eggs by 50 percent: 45 percent
Amount you reduce risk if you eliminate meat, dairy and eggs from your diet: 90 percent
A CASE FOR BRONCHIAL ASTHMA
Where: University Hospital in Linkoping, Sweden
Who: patients with severe bronchial asthma patients, who required cortisone or other medication
What: placed on a pure vegetarian diet, without any eggs or dairy products
Result after 1 year:
more than 90% of the patients who completed the project reported a major improvement in the severity and frequency of asthma attacks
medication dosages dropped an average of 50 to 90%
a number of the patients discontinued medication altogether
THE GERSON INSTITUTE
The Gerson Institute is an alternative, non-toxic treatment of cancer and other disease, using the Gerson Therapy using organic foods, juicing, coffee enemas, detoxification and natural supplements to activate the body’s ability to heal itself.
Western Medicine’s solution for Cancer (chemo, radiation, surgery, drug) results in less than 30% survival in 5 years.
Dr. Max Gerson’s Therapy has a 50% cure rate with the TERMINALLY ILL!
LET’S AGREE THEN THAT:
1. decreasing meat, dairy and eggs in our diet lowers one’s risk for degenerative diseases, and
2. increasing plant foods in our diet can prevent and cure degenerative diseases.
