Meat and Dairy Cause Cancer (T. Colin Campbell)

Alarming speech by Dr. Campbell (the China Study), who actually grew up on a dairy farm himself but became a vegan after seeing the results from his own research: animal products and their link to cancer.

A practically lone voice crying in the wilderness, it seems, considering the popularity of the low carb diets and the high consumption of animal products in general. We (and I include myself as a cheese lover) only want to hear what we want to hear, but the truth always comes out sooner or later.

Mmmmm. Cancer on a bun.

Meat and dairy are major

Meat and dairy are major sources of protein and cholesterol.

Proteins are literally the, "building blocks of life." Meats and cheeses are packed with protein. Your brain is composed mostly out of cholesterol! (Sea) salt is vital for getting essential minerals, and is also responsible for proper neuron (brain and nervous system) conductivity.

But all we hear is how people shouldn't eat too much red meat, cholesterol is bad, eggs are bad, and salt is bad. Why? Because they want to either kill you, or get you hooked on some medication.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

The Gladiators were vegan.

Known at the time as the "Barley Men." Archeological evidence backs up the historical writings about them:

The only thing that meat will give you is heart disease and cancer, not to mention suffering and untimely death for animals.

Get bee pollen

It covered your enzymes ...

Proteins are over rated we don't need that much protein and you sure as hell don't need to get it from meat. If that's your position then please explain Silverback Gorillas to me. One of the most muscular and powerful beasts on this planet and oh....they just happen to be vegetarian.

It's like eating a cow to get protein . How does the cow get its protein? It doesn't , it eats grass . Do you know why?

Because its not about the protein at all, it's about the convergence to branch chain amino acids. That's why people eat protein. You can get all the aminos you need from plants, so why not just cut out the middle man and skip the cow.....eat the stuff you really need.

Protein is over rated

Come on Dexter

"explain silver backs to me?"

Okay I will -- but first you explain their gut-flora and bacterium profile..........a human would die if you tried a fecal transplant with a wild primate; they are way way to robust for us (our system).

Gorilla's eat the living hell out of driver ants -- driver ants eat meat.

Gorillas also eat other insects and small invertibrates.

So there -- that explains them #1 their gut flora / bacterial profile can break down tree husks, hard fibers, and pith AND #2 they eat meat (Directly and Indirectly).

Chimpanzees - even more so (including Bonobos -- where females lead the hunt).

Same is true for Organutans.

So there! Explained -- Gorillas are NOT vegetarians, at all. In the same way the chinese (china study) all ate some amount of meat and as their wealth grows they eat more of it.

So longevity might be connected to meat eating but not an absence of it but the "right amount" and the "right kind"

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

yeah right

Yes, meat that has been poisoned with anti-biotics and hormones, and dairy same deal.

Simple carbs cause all the cancer, diabetes, heart-disease. Cancer is a sugar disorder... so is alcoholism.. a sugar addiction... eliminate simple sugars and cancer dies.

It's called the paleo diet, so stop thinking like a caveman and start eating like one.

Wow

You really bought into that Paleo diet fad. There's a lot of money to be made in telling people what they want to hear, without science or archeological evidence to back it up.

Man was vegan until the time of Noah, according to the Bible.

Don't believe the Bible? The famous "Ice Man" was vegetarian.

The Paleo type of eating is not a fad.

"the Iceman suffered from tooth decay due to his eating more and more starchy foods such as bread and cereal porridge which were consumed more commonly in the Neolithic period because of the rise of agriculture"

That's why...

...today we have dentists.

But it figures -- archeology disproves the paleo diet theory about ancient man, and the paleo gurus come up with another lame excuse to sell their money-making fad.

Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, Weston A Price (1939)

For nearly 10 years, Weston Price and his wife traveled around the world in search of the secret to health. Instead of looking at people afflicted with disease symptoms, this highly-respected dentist and dental researcher chose to focus on healthy individuals, and challenged himself to understand how they achieved such amazing health. Dr. Price traveled to hundreds of cities in a total of 14 different countries in his search to find healthy people. He investigated some of the most remote areas in the world. He observed perfect dental arches, minimal tooth decay, high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health in those groups of people who ate their indigenous foods. He found when these people were introduced to modernized foods, such as white flour, white sugar, refined vegetable oils and canned goods, signs of degeneration quickly became quite evident. Dental caries, deformed jaw structures, crooked teeth, arthritis and a low immunity to tuberculosis became rampant amongst them. Dr. Price documented this ancestral wisdom including hundreds of photos in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.

What were you saying about archaeology disproving hunter-gatherer diets? Prehistoric Plaque and the Gentrification of Europe’s Mouth

The hunter-gatherers had a diverse array of bacteria including several groups that are associated with good health. That fits with the relative absence of tooth decay or gum disease among modern or prehistoric hunter-gatherers. “They were at the end of a long period of happy co-evolution between us and oral bacteria,” says Cooper.

Tell you what.

You throw away your toothbrush and just eat meat and vegetables. Just do strictly Paleo or Atkins. Eat all the meat and eggs you want but no grains, no starch of any kind, no sugar.

Then come back in about a year's time to give us an update on your teeth, if you still have them. Okay?

Why are you worried about my

Why are you worried about my teeth? More propaganda for your racket? I'm not going to buy any of your toothbrushes.

Basically you're admitting that that diet is bad for the teeth

"That's why today we have dentists"

LMAO!

Basically you're admitting that that diet is bad for the teeth (it's bad for everything actually) but saying that's ok becuase you can take your decaying mouth to a dentist? That's cracked.

We have doctors too, but you're better off keeping yourself healthy so you need neither.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Basically I'm admitting...

...that the paleo diet is bad for your health -- namely, the link between meat/dairy and cancer and heart disease. Personally, I'd rather have bad teeth than cancer or heart disease. Wouldn't you?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to conclude that virtually everybody back then, no doubt, had bad teeth no matter what they ate. That's why toothbrushes were invented.

Only someone connected to the dental cartel and toothbrush racket would make such a statement. You're obviously on the take...

http://www.gnolls.org/3253/dental-health-and-the-paleo-diet-...

Not on the take...

...though it would be nice if I were. I hear there's a lot of money in that racket.

I do have a toothbrush, though. Do you?

Everybody didn't have bad teeth

Wrong. Everybody didn't have bad teeth. Those who ate diets high in grains and starches had bad teeth, osteoporosis, arthritis etc. Those who were hunter/gatherers tended to not have those diseases and be larger in stature. Grains and sugars cause those diseases as well has many mental issues.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to conclude that all of the BS linking meat to cancer and and heart disease is complete and total bunk.

You are foolishly buying into a bunch of nonsense including revisionist ancient history.

Actually, you can probably safely say that all chronic diseases of civilization are various manifestations of poor glucose control or glucose intolerance.

I think there are studies that show most alcoholics are hypoglycemic. A high fat diet does a better job of keeping blood sugar levels stable.

Holey Cow js290

Thanks for that. We have come a long way. From an 8 hour hunt to 1 minute at the fast food window. Holey Cow!

Wait a minute. It's the same time just another continent plus a few hours (maybe 15).

I think he should have stayed home and dug up some tubers and had them with grass. Holey Cow!

Well I did the vegetarian thing for 20 years and it did not work for me. However I hear of folks doing well. I think I have learned that food is certainly important and we are at risk of toxins we ingest such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, plastics, dioxins and junk foods.

It also appears that with high fat, moderate protein and low carbs I have chelated much of those toxins from my body. That is if my pee and poop are any indication.

My current study is of possible iodine deficiency in me and many of my fellow citizens.

Just think of that life that hunter has. No video, no computer, no boss, no government, no taxes, no traffic, no NSA and the whole camp is probably like Ron Paul; Encourage self sufficiency, help those in need and take care of your family.

Holey Cow!
