Here's the Beef!
People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health...
and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.
. Contrary to The Dairy Council's mantra: Cow's milk does not "do a body good." In fact, it can leech calcium from your bones.
. About 60 percent of adults can't digest milk... and humans are the only animals to drink another animal's milk and to drink milk as adults!
.Kale contains more calcium per calorie than milk -- 90 grams per serving -- and is better absorbed. See kale salad!
. Vegans have lower rates of obesity and weigh 5 to 20 pounds less than meat eaters.
. One in three American children is overweight or obese. A vegan diet, high in fiber, low in fat, cholesterol free, and rich with vitamins and minerals, is an excellent choice for healthy children.
. A vegan diet has been shown to help treat Type 2 diabetes for many diagnosed with the disease.
. Our daily protein requirement can easily be met with high protein legumes, nuts, seeds, grains and even leafy vegetables. Consider that many of top vegan athletes, among them tennis champion Serena Williams, the world's strongest man Patrik Baboumian, MMA fighter Mac Danzig, triathlete Brendan Brazier, and NFL fullback Tony Fiametta are clearly getting all the protein they need!
. A study led by Dean Ornish, M.D., showed telomeres, DNA-protein complexes that are markers of health and longevity, were elongated among men who adopted a low-fat, plant-based diet.
. Omega-3 fatty acids like fish oil are good for you, but are plentiful in plant sources such as hemp seeds, flax seeds, and seaweeds.
. Worried about B-12 in a vegan diet? Adding fortified foods like breakfast cereals, non-dairy milk, and nutritional yeast make it easy to get the recommended daily intake. Most multivitamins also contain ample B-12.
. Vegans have lower incidences of anxiety and depression than meat eaters.
. There is a strong correlation between Alzheimer's disease and the consumption of meat and dairy.
. Antibiotics used on factory farmed animals are creating life threatening "superbugs. "About 80 percent of U.S. antibiotics are used to keep farmed animals alive in crowded filthy conditions. Bacteria are evolving to resist these antibiotics, leading to new antibiotic-resistant infections. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 2 million people get sick and at least 23,000 die as a result. (See 400,000 Medical Error Deaths Per Year.)
. Pig poop! The USDA is piloting a program at pig slaughterhouses that speeds up kill lines by 20 percent while halving the number of inspectors. The result? Whole chunks of feces made it to the end of the processing line before being caught by inspectors.
The USDA, Big Ag, powerful lobbies like The Dairy Council and their friends in Congress have duped the American public for decades. Milk does not "do a body good," nor should beef be "what's for dinner." The consumption of animal products is making people sick and fat, causing cataclysmic environmental problems, and subjecting 150 billion individual beings (animals) every single year to terror, torture, and suffering.

has been well documented that vegetarians are healthier than
people who eat meat. In some cases, vegan vegetarians
have better health than lacto-ovo
vegetarians. Although many vegetarians also exercise and avoid smoking, evidence indicates that their
good health is largely due to diet. One study of 30,000 people in California compared
vegetarians and meat eaters who, aside from their dietary differences, had very similar
lifestyles and health practices. The vegetarians were less likely to be obese, or to have high
blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or colon cancer. They were also less
likely to die from heart disease. In fact, the vegetarians were healthier even than people who
ate meat only occasionally. Even when vegetarians were fatter than meat eaters, they had

The Original Fast Foods
What is a Vegetarian?
vegetarian is a person who refuses to eat dead animals.
PROS AND CONS
do not eat meat, poultry, or fish (people who include
small amounts of these foods in their diets sometimes
call themselves semi-vegetarians.) Vegetarians build their
diets around a wide variety of plant foods, including
grains (such as rice, barley, and oats), grain-based foods
(such as bread, pasta, and cereals), legumes, vegetables,
fruits, nuts and seeds. Soy foods such as tofu,
soy milk, and soy-based meat substitutes may play
an important role in many vegetarian diets. In addition,
cheese and milk made from rice, almonds, and soybeans
are prominent in some vegetarian diets. Lacto-ovo vegetarians
consume dairy foods and eggs. Vegans are vegetarians who
do not eat any animal products, including dairy products,
eggs, and honey. See Recipes. See

Vegetarians have lower blood pressure even when they eat the
same amount of salt as meat eaters and exercise less. Researchers
have known since the beginning of the 1900s that feeding meat
to vegetarians causes their blood pressure to rise.
Many studies show that vegetarians have less colon cancer
than meat eaters. The composition of bacterial flora in the
colon differs between vegetarians and people who eat meat
in ways that could possibly affect cancer risk. (BTW: Have you

Many factors in a vegetarian diet contribute to the better
health of vegetarians. These factors include:
consume two to three times as much fiber as do meat-eaters.
This helps to reduce cholesterol and blood glucose levels,
and protect against colon cancer.
consume more antioxidants, which are found in a wide variety
of plant foods. Antioxidants protect cells from oxygen-induced
damage and reduce the risk for heart disease, arthritis, cancer,
and other diseases.
consume more phytochemicals than do meat eaters, special compounds
found in plants. Many phytochemicals have a wide range of
protective effects in the human body. They help to detoxify
carcinogens, stimulate the immune system, regulate cell growth
(which helps to fight cancer), and reduce some of the harmful
effects of excessive exposure to hormones.
eat more isoflavones than do meat eaters. These compounds,
found mostly in soy foods, are another type of phytochemical.
Research shows that isoflavones may reduce the risk for prostate
cancer and may improve bone health. See Finally, The Truth About Cancer.
consume much less saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat
eaters. This helps to explain why they have significantly
lower levels of blood cholesterol. One study showed that blood
cholesterol levels were 14% lower in lacto-ovo vegetarians
and 35% lower in vegans compared to meat-eaters. Lower intakes
of saturated fat reduce the risk for heart disease and possibly
for diabetes and cancer.
do not consume heme iron, a type of iron found in meat that
appears to increase the risk of heart disease and cancer.
do not eat red meat, which has been linked to increased cancer
risk in many studies. Red meat consumption stimulates the
production of mutation-causing compounds in the colon and
is linked to increased damage to DNA.
We know of no vegetarians that are alcoholics.

How do Vegetarians get sufficient protein?
Beans and grains combined equal a complete protein
These foods are known as incomplete proteins, including BEANS, whole GRAINS, NUTS, SEEDS, PEAS, and CORN. Just combine two or more incomplete proteins and you've got a complete protein. Enjoy them together in one meal or the combination can be consumed over the same day, such as black bean soup for lunch and brown rice with dinner.
Here are some other food combinations that work well:
Beans with whole grains: hummus (contains chickpeas and tahini, which is made from sesame seeds) and pita bread, red beans and rice, chickpea and quinoa veggie burgers on a whole-wheat bun, split pea soup with whole-grain bread, lentil barley soup, black beans and polenta, and tortillas with refried beans.
Nuts or seeds with whole grains: sunflower seed butter on crackers, almond butter on toast, peanut noodles.
Beans with seeds or nuts: hummus, salad topped with sunflower seeds and chickpeas.
What do critics say?
folks just can't 'live' without eating dead flesh.
Critics of vegetarianism claim that people who choose this
diet will have to “balance incomplete proteins”
to synthesize complete protein in the body. Proteins that
come from fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grain products
are only “incomplete” in the sense that they do
not provide all nine essential amino acids (protein building
blocks) at a single meal; thus, according to critics, a vegetarian
(and especially a vegan) must be careful to consume appropriate
quantities of complementary proteins each day to ensure that
he or she is getting enough dietary protein.
Contrary to this popular belief, inadequate protein intake
is rarely a concern for vegetarians. Better understanding
of protein nutrition shows that, for adults, it is not necessary
to consume special combinations of foods to meet requirements
for the right balance of amino acids. Many plant foods, such
as grains and legumes, provide protein. Soy foods and dairy
products are particularly rich in high-quality protein. Protein
needs are easily met when vegetarians consume a variety of
plant foods and eat enough food to meet calorie needs.
Critics also point out that there is no way to get vitamin
B12 via food except through animal products. Tempeh and other
fermented soy products do not contain consistent enough quantities
of B12 to meet the body’s requirements. Vegetarians
must therefore eat B12-fortified foods or take vitamin supplements
on a daily basis to prevent a deficiency.
Some critics fault vegetarian, and particularly vegan, diets
for not providing sufficient calcium. In truth, most people,
not just vegetarians, eat less than optimal amounts of calcium.
Dairy products are a good source of dietary calcium, but they
are not the only source. Green leafy vegetables and tofu are
also good sources, and are usually eaten in large quantities
by vegetarians. Vegans - who eat no animal products - are
the most likely to suffer from calcium deficiency. Many Americans - vegetarians
and meat eaters alike - could benefit from taking a calcium
Sea food is dead flesh, too.
Vegetarians eat less iron than non-vegetarians, and the iron
they eat is somewhat less absorbable. As a result, vegetarians
are more likely to have reduced iron stores.
However, iron deficiency is not usually caused by a lack of
iron in the diet alone; an underlying cause - such as
iron loss in menstrual blood - often exists. Although
iron is found in a variety of different foods, its availability
to the body (bio availability) varies significantly. This
is determined by whether it is found in the form of heme and
non-heme iron. Heme iron is found only in meat, fish, and
poultry. It is absorbed much more readily than non-heme iron
found primarily in fruits, vegetables, dried beans, nuts,
and grain products, such as bread and iron-fortified breakfast
cereals. Including a source of vitamin C at each meal improves
absorption of vegetarian-source iron.
Strict vegans may become iodine deficient if they do not consume
enough iodine, readily available in iodized salt.
few foods are good sources of vitamin D, which is why milk
is fortified with it. Vegetarians who do not consume milk
should be sure to get 20 to 30 minutes of sun exposure every
day since this promotes the synthesis of vitamin D in the
body. People who live in cloudy, smoggy, or northern areas,
and people who do not leave their residences, need foods fortified
with vitamin D. These fortified foods include breakfast cereals
and some brands of soy milk and rice milk. Since people with
dark skin make vitamin D less efficiently, they may also need
supplemental sources of vitamin D or increased sun exposure.

Hot Dog Headache
A hot dog headache sounds funny, but the nitrites (preservatives)
used in hot dogs and other processed meats can bring on
headache pain. These nitrous compounds are actually used
as experimental models for migraine. Experts used to think
these culprits were headache triggers because they widened
blood vessels and let more blood into the head. More blood
in the head, they thought, meant more pressure and pain.
But it appears blood vessels don’t change during
migraine. The latest explanation for hot dog headache
is that the brain stem becomes more active when these
compounds are present, and that somehow this leads to
migraine symptoms like headache pain. Another reason for

How To Eat Fruit By Dr. Oz FRUIT IS A MOST IMPORTANT FOOD
all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it
up and popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's
important to know how and when to eat fruit.
What's the correct way to eat fruit? Fruit should be eaten on an empty stomach. It means not eating fruit after a meal.
fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system,
supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss
and other life activities.
Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit.
The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach
into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so.
In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns
to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the
food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass
of food begins to spoil.
Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've
heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp,
when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I
feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen
if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with
the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!
There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon
are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body,
according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this
matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit,
you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy,
Happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit
juice, NOT the concentrated juice from the cans. Don't drink
juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't
get the nutrients at all. You get only the taste. Cooking
destroys all of the vitamins.
EATING A WHOLE FRUIT is better than drinking
the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful
by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your
saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast
to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for
just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say
how radiant you look!

DRINKING COLD WATER after a meal could lead to
Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water...
this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after
a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff
that you've just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this
'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed
by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line
the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats, which could lead
to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after
a meal. -- See How To Identify A
