By Dr. Mercola

The persistent myth that dietary fat causes obesity and promotes heart disease has undoubtedly ruined the health of millions of people. It's difficult to know just how many people have succumbed to chronic poor health from following conventional low-fat, high-carb recommendations, but I'm sure the number is significant.

In the featured documentary, Cereal Killers, 41-year-old Donal O'Neill turns the American food pyramid upside-down—eliminating sugars and grains, and dramatically boosting his fat intake. In so doing, he improves his health to the point of reducing his hereditary risk factors for heart disease to nil.

Watching people's reactions to his diet brings home just how brainwashed we've all become when it comes to dietary fat. Most fear it. Yet they will consume sugar in amounts that virtually guarantee they'll suffer all the devastating health consequences they're trying to prevent by avoiding fat, and then some!

Oh, THAT Movie?

..Interesting...I had viewed another youtube video that documented the ritualistic torture and murder of a young couple in the woods.

Both were found face-down...pants pulled down around their ankles.

This heinous act was hushed-up by the MSM....
....absolutely NO COVERAGE!

What was particularly disturbing was this fact:

Both had been raped repeatedly...and the "calling-card" left behind
by the perpetrator(s)?

Protruding from every orifice......

.....was a banana.....presumably left behind by:

The "Cereal Killer".


"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Too late, even though it's the 4th

I don't come by here every day, and I guess I should have stopped by sooner. I would have liked to watch this, but even though your message says it's free viewing through the 4th, there's a message that says free viewing is over. It's about 5:45pm Pacific time on the 4th... bummer. I'll catch it another time perhaps.

Just Think

Why do they give corn/grains to COWS and PIGS? To FATTEN them up!

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect" - Mark Twain

Well exactly.

They mention in the video that up until about 1959, high carb foods were known to be fattening. Then, they magically became "health foods." And of course after several decades of the carb heavy food pyramid, it would seem that they were correct in the 1950s on back.

Just got finished watching

Just got finished watching this. Very interesting. Great info. Recommended.

They pointed out that due to lobbying, US schools consider pizza to be a vegetable.

Fat does not cause cancer or heart disease,

it's the combination of fats with carbs (processed sugars) that is killing us. Back in the 1950's everyone ate a high fat diet, and heart disease was very low. It all changed when President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack, everyone jumped on the low fat ban wagon. Heart disease has been rising ever since.

The food industry loves this low fat scheme, they can hide all kinds of crap in their so called food.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Sorry but it does.

Have you seen the independent studies? I have and they're scary.

What is going up? What is going down?

As a result of the efforts of Ansel Keys, the seed oil industry, the American Heart Association, the USDA, food manufacturers, and people like you, significant changes in dietary intake have occurred in recent decades.

What did we consume more of? Carbohydrates , chicken, seed oils (polyunsaturated fatty acids), genetically modified crops, bromine, fluorine, statin drugs, psychotropic drugs, to name a few.

What did we consume less of? Egg, butter, beef, coconut oil, salt, iodine, cigarettes, to name a few.

What happened to health? It went to hell. There are epidemics in obesity, type II diabetes (insulin resistance), high blood pressure, neurological degenerative diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS), cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Health care costs are soaring, and in the coming years Alzheimer's alone will probably bankrupt the health care system.

It seems to me that many people have followed your thinking and suffered the consequences. How is it working out for you?

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

You haven't either, they are a fiction of pseudo-scientists

and marketing gurus.

One of the so-called researcher (Barnard) publishes a lot of books, but I found no publications in peer-reviewed profession journals.

Studies don't prove correlation, they suggest possible avenues of further research.

And please quit with the chicken little routine based on fiat evidence.

Some fats actually do cause cancer.

Omega6 polyunsaturated fatty acids found in seeds and seed oils (corn oil, soy oil, canola oil, etc.) are unstable at the double carbon bond.

This makes them oxidize easily at body temperature which should be obvious since they go rancid even at room temperature when exposed to air. This peroxidation is damaging to our cells and causes at a minimum inflammation, and at worst diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases like ALS and Parkinson's.

Here is one writeup that summarizes how the omega6's breakdown:

"4-Hydroxynonenal (HNE) is a highly reactive, cytotoxic aldehyde that is released during the oxidation of o-6-unsaturated fatty acids. HNE can efficiently react with sulfhydryl groups or histidine and lysine groups of proteins to form stable HNE-protein adducts, in addition to phospholipids and nucleic acids. It is through this HNE-modification of biomolecules that HNE is thought to exert its cytotoxic effects. This multifunctional molecule may be considered as a “second toxic messenger,” which disseminates and augments initial free radical events. It is believed to be largely responsible for the cytopathological effects observed during oxidative stress. High levels of 4-HNE have been detected in a large number of disease states, indicating some involvement of this aldehyde in their pathogenesis. Some of the prominent pathobiochemical effects of 4-HNE are its stimulation of fibrogenesis and inflammation, thus indicating a potential contribution to the pathogenesis of several chronic diseases, the progression of which is supported by inflammatory reactions and characterized by fibrosis. 4-HNE may also play a role in carcinogenesis due to its ability to modulate cell proliferation through interference with the activity of cyclins and protein kinases and with the apoptotic response."

As if these nasty effects are not enough, polyunsaturated fatty acids interfere with the production, transport, and cellular absorption of thyroid hormone, leading to hypothyroidism and related reduced metabolic rate. This occurs because iodine (highly electronegative) is the active component in thyroid hormone, and polyunsaturated fats react with that iodine, diverting its availability for other bodily functions. Inadequate iodine levels are then implicated particularly in thyroid, breast, endometrial, ovarian, and prostate cancer and the cysts, fibroid tissue, and enlargement that precedes the breakdown into cancer. It is the failure of iodine's influence on apoptosis which is involved in this uncontrolled cell growth.

Not bothered yet? Polyunsaturated fatty acids suppress immune function and in fact are used as a base to suppress immune response in patients receiving organ transplants.

Saturated fats, and to a lesser extent monosaturated fats are not disease producing. Polyunsaturated fats are dangerous as described above. Primitive societies may have diets that are relatively high in complex (unrefined) carbohydrates, relatively high in saturated fats, or relatively high in protein, all without negative effect, but if they exceed more than 5% of their diet in polyunsaturated fats they get into trouble. Of course they don't refine these fats out of their source like industrial nations do, and they generally have a balance between omega3 and omega6 fatty acids when they do consume them. Since omega3's are anti-inflammatory and omega6's are inflammatory, if we get a balance and a very low intake we generally are safe. We should get no more than a few grams per day, not the 40 grams a day which is what the standard American diet contains.

I have seen the suggestion that we should measure safety from cell damage by multiplying the ratio of saturated fats to unsaturated fats by the ratio of anti-oxidants to oxidants in our diets.

As you say, the food industry hides all sorts of crap in what they produce. Look at the label of almost anything in a grocery, and you will find one of the polyunsaturated oils (because they are cheap) and at least one form of sugar.

It was not until the mid to late 19th century that polyunsaturated seed oils were introduced into foods. Before that they were used to lubricate machinery, but as petroleum derived oil successfully competed with these oils, manufacturers looked for a new use. Proctor and Gamble produced CRISCO out of seeds as a substitute for lard and tallow, and bribed the American Heart Association to endorse CRISCO as a "heart healthy" oil. This fit right in with the Ansel Keys fraud blaming saturated fat for heart disease, and when the federal government got involved, the fate of millions of citizens was sealed. Disease and early death has proliferated.

Cooking oil is one reason I stopped eating at the puke and choke

restuarants (McDonalds, burger king). Their fench fries are a heart attack waiting to happen. If the oil doesn't kill you the glyphosate in the potato will give you kidney failure.

I think I stopped using all cooking oils over a year ago. There is one I still use occasionally, that is olive oil. Olive oil is much better than the other types. Lately my favorite to cook with is butter or bacon fat. I ussually have 4 eggs fried in the bacon fat after the bacon is done. But of course this breakfast includes no bread.

I watched this video and had to chuckle because I eat the exact same way. In the last 3 months I went down 40 lbs, the ketogenic diet is a healthy way of eating. If this diet is wrong, then the Inuit Eskimo's would have been dead long ago.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

You're not an eskimo.


So why eat like a very small population in the arctic? Why not eat like the billions of Asians who eat mostly carbs and are thin and healthy?

That bacon is clogging your arteries, though you likely don't realize it yet. I assume you're very young still.

I have nothing against the good carbs

that is garden raised veges and fruits. It's the processed sugars and cooking oils that will kill you. The fact is when you eat mostly processed foods, it become addicting. They know exactly what to put in it to keep you coming back for more.

I have only been on this low carb diet for 3 months, it broke the addictions I had to different candies.

There is no way bacon grease will ever clog my arteries, because I am not including lots of carbs with it. Now if I had toast with my bacon and eggs that would be a deadly combo. Also since I have been eating this way, I find I eat much less.

Listen to what a practicing doctor says about the ketogenic diet, she has been on it for twenty years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaquSijXJkQ

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Spot on; I love to see people having success.

That is the way I eat too. Even before I switched to a high fat diet, I was fortunate that my wife used plenty of bacon fat in cooking, if for not other reason than the great taste.

I read one researcher's hypothesis that one factor in insulin resistance might be deficiency in sulphur, and eggs are probably the best source. Apparently when we get enough sun and have enough sulphur our Vitamin D and our cholesterol becomes sulfated, which makes them water soluble, hence they don't need LDL to carry them to our cells. Once there the sulphur goes through some chemical reaction within the cell that creates a protein that migrates to the cell wall and allows glucose to enter the cell to be used as energy. This is not an issue for someone eating very low carb, but I find it interesting anyway that demonizing eggs may have backfired big time on those choosing a low fat, anti-cholesterol or vegan diet.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

I used to go visit a lady beekeeper once in a while

she would get on a rant about doctors and their cholesterol medicines. I remember see would always say your body needs cholesterol to function. She was in her 80's and able to pickup 90 lb boxes of honey with no problem. She even called me a wimp for using smaller boxes. Our older generation know how to eat correctly, they stay away from the fast food garbage.

Have you ever heard of the Coconut oil experiment on cattle to fatten them for slaughter? It took place in the 40's. Turned out the cattle became lean and more hungry, Just another example saturated fats are good for you.
They then used seed oils, the opposite happened, they became fat and lazy. I found a website that mentions it: http://www.gnet.org/coconut-oil-the-healthiest-oil/

I watched this video awhile back about a vegan that died of a heart attack, turns out they are in trouble without supplements. You might find it interesting, but the speaker is boring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7KeRwdIH04

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Bogus nonsense

Animal fat is heavily linked to cancer and heart disease.

Carbs burn off -- fats, especially animal fats, stay with you and clog your arteries.

By the way, watch this, if you can stand it, and I guarantee you'll never eat meat/poultry/dairy from factory "farms" ever again -- that is, if you have a conscience:


No, fats don't clog arteries - that's advertising propaganda.

Inflammation and scaring of arteries is the cause.

Advertising propaganda from whom?

Who do you think is on the USDA advisory panel?

Hint: It isn't organic vegetable farmers.

If animal fat kills, then explain how the inuit eskimo

has the lowest case of heart attacks, and no cancer or diabetes? The inuit eskimo's eat all fish and meat diet and no fruit or vegetables.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Eskimos need that extra blubber to survive.

Bodies adapt to their surrounding conditions. That's the way God made us, I believe. Eskimos are able to consume that in extreme cold where plants cannot grow. They're also a very small population.

We're talking about large populations. The large populations that consume the highest percentage of carbs are the leanest and healthiest, with the lowest rates of cancer and heart disease. That's just a fact.

Study after study that's not paid for by the meat and dairy industry shows that excess protein, especially animal protein, in our body burdens the liver and kidney and damages the bones, not to mention the strain it puts on the heart.

You should watch "Forks Over Knives." It's an eye opener.

Yes the study cited in the Forbs article is bogus nonsense.

Bad science and essentially a biased advertisement by a profit motivated vegan might be a good description of your article as outlined in this criticism:

The original study this article was based upon had some serious methodological flaws.

A 24 hour dietary recall was used to classify subjects and then they were followed for 18 years. Is it possible their diets changed over that time?

Next, the work in humans was correlative and observational. It was not an intervention or controlled study. All we can conclude is there is a relationship.

Most importantly is the authors statistical analysis of the data and their interpretation. If we look at the raw data we see that the rate of cancer across the low, medium, and high protein groups was actually 9.8, 10.1, and 9.0%, respectively. There is no difference. However, the authors did some funky math to come up with this huge difference.

In mice, there was no difference in the rate of cancer growth between the vegan protein (soy) and the animal protein (casein); however, the authors claim there was a “non-significant trend” but they do not report the probability value. If we look at the graph, it is barely discernible and does not exceed the standard deviation.

Why then might the researchers make their conclusions off this lack of evidence? Its quite simple, the senior researcher, V. D. Luongo is the founder and has equity in L-Nutra, a Vegan Based Nutrition System. Luongo designed the study, obtained funding, and played a major role in the writing of the manuscript. This is a serious conflict of interest, and we should hold the publisher of the study, Cellular Metabolism, and their peer reviewers responsible for not identifying these issues. If you want to read more about it you can here at my objective critical analysis.

As far as the video you referenced, it is pure emotion to support your vegan views, and does not give scientific credibility to your assertions. Someone could equally point to bad farming practices in raising crops for vegans that lead to poor quality, chemically contaminated foods or damage to the earth through desertification, and that would not be of any more value to the discussion than your emotional appeal.

Where is the science? Both Ansel Keys hypothesis and the China Study are poorly done, and do not qualify as science, and neither does your cited Luongo Study.

Believe whatever you'd like...

...but the evidence is overwhelming that meat, especially red meat, is linked to cancer and heart disease. The caisein in milk is heavily linked to breast cancer. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/385473

The "studies" you cite were paid for by the meat and dairy industries, and that includes Weston A. Price foundation.

Both my Armenian father and grandfather grew up on shish kebab (that's meat and vegetables) and rarely touched starches because they didn't like them. I never saw my dad eat cereal in my life -- he hated cereal, cake, etc. He and his dad lived on eggs, lean meat, poultry and veggies.

My grandfather died of heart disease at the young age of 57 and my dad would have too had it not been for bypass -- he had a FIVE-bypass.

"If beef is your idea of 'real food for real people,' you'd better live real close to a real good hospital."
Neal Barnard, M.D.

"...paid for by the meat and

"...paid for by the meat and dairy industries, and that includes Weston A. Price foundation."

Please post proof of this.

You should actually read Weston A. Price's 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration' before spamming anymore of your ridiculous nonsense. He was not funded by anyone or anything except for his earnings from his own dental practice.


If you actually looked into to all of this for yourself, rather than regurgitating BS from those PCRM pseudo-doctors, you would be doing yourself and those around you a huge favor.

I wasn't speaking about Weston Price.

I was speaking about the Weston A. Price Foundation, which took some of what he wrote and ignored all the rest in order to promote their pro-meat philosophy. The foundation does not represent Weston Price.

Ever look at their ads? Ever look at who paid for the studies you've read that show animal protein is good for humans? It's obvious that you haven't.

Follow the money.

WAPF also promotes eating grains and legumes.

So carrying on about this "pro-meat philosophy" is really ridiculous. The only things I've seen on their site is listings of sources for pasture raised meats etc.

I still say you should read Weston Price's 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration' so you will read his info first hand, and not get it spun and twisted from the likes of McDougall and the other PCRM/PETA types.

None of the "primitive cultures" that Price studied were vegan. None. They all consumed various animal products.

So? Everyone supports that. What's your point?


No. The question is what is

No. The question is what is your point? Or better yet, what is your problem? Grain brain maybe?

I believe you have cherry picked their eating habits.

What you have described are known nutritional deficiency diseases.

With nutrition it is possible to clear plugged coronary arteries.

Fried fats and overcooked meats cause inflammation that clogs arteries.

My Polish grandfather raised chickens and dairy cows. He ate baked and, boiled foods. His arteries were clear when he died of an aortic aneurysm (a copper deficiency) at the age of 85.

Two years before, he laid the brick on his daughter's 2 car garage. He worked 5 hours a day or more. I mixed the mortar and hauled the bricks.

Hundreds of autopsies identify arterial disease in herbivores that is missing in carnivores.

But, only humans burn their fats, eat huge amounts of fried plant oils, overcook their meats and toast their grains. It's a self inflicted death sentence, especially if mal-nourished.

Midwesterners bake and boil everything and tend to have a longer lifespans than Southerners, who fry everything.

No plant oils, no fried foods, no well done meats, no nitrate/nitrate processed food, no toasted grains/carbs.

For me it's not meat vs veggies vs grains, it's about preparation that minimizes toxins.

Best wished, to you and yours.

7 Things You Didn't Know About PCRM

PCRM is an animal rights group, not a real “physicians committee.” Contrary to what its name implies, less than ten percent of PCRM’s members are actual physicians. Among the group’s relatively few active physicians is PCRM president (and former PETA Foundation president) Neal Barnard, a vegan psychiatrist who claims that cheese is “dairy crack” and “morphine on a cracker.”

PCRM’s anti-meat activism is bought and paid for by the wealthiest animal rights activist in America. Through her personal foundation, Animal Rights Foundation of Florida founder Nanci Alexander provides more than 60 percent of PCRM’s $9 million budget. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has steered another $1.3 million to PCRM. This explains why the group’s platform has more to do with the “rights” of animals than the health of people.

PCRM has been linked with FBI-designated terrorist groups, including the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). Dr. Jerry Vlasak, the ALF “Press Officer” who is known for openly advocating the use of violence to further animal liberation goals, was a PCRM spokesperson when he first called for the “political assassination” of medical research scientists in 2003. “I don’t think you’d have to kill—assassinate—too many,” Vlasak told activists that year. “I think for 5 lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives.” In 2001, PCRM president Neal Barnard co-signed a series of threatening letters with the U.S. president of SHAC, who was convicted on federal terrorism charges in 2006.

The rest of your post is a waste of time arguing with.

Maybe you should look up the actual facts before you post.
