A heart surgeon talks about what we should eat to prevent heart disease. Now he isn’t the first to say it, but it is the way nutritionist have been talking for years. When I first started reading about nutrition ( I was 12) they were saying similar things – Stay away from processed food, eat more veggies and fruits.
here is a quote from the article:
What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.
a couple of other notes: Asthma is a disease of inflammation. and it looks like there is a connection between type 2 diabetes and inflamation. ( there are articles). .
here is an amazing story Dr Terry Whahls and her recovery from MS – based on changing her diet:
So coming across two pieces of media about food feels like a reminder. I do not expect to cure , but I know I feel better with more veggies , less grains , and almost no processed food. and I know I don’t get enough magnesium . Time to up the veggies and nuts — and get rid of the plastic covered food from the factory .
