We are sick!
CDC: 7 of 10 deaths are due to chronic disease, more than 80% are preventable

Over 1/3 of American children are overweight/obese and over 2/3 adults

By 2030 50% of Americans will be diabetic/pre-diabetic, adult-onset diabetes had to be
renamed recently because for the first time in known history children have it

1 in 3 deaths are from a single disease. The #1 cause of death is heart disease and the
number one cause of disability is stroke 10 year olds now have rising cholesterol and
aortic fatty streaks, 18 year olds have visible plaques. 1/3 of adults over 20 have
hypertension and high cholesterol

#2 is cancer and #3 is prescription medication. In 100 years death rate from heart
disease and cancer combined has grown from 18% to 63%

50% of Americans take pharmaceuticals ($1,000/yr) and 90% by retirement age. 5% of

the worlds population take 50% of the worlds pharmaceuticals

So if this is preventable how to avoid cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, kidney
disease, osteoporosis, dementia and doctors overprescription?
Why all this chronic poor health?

Tolerable upper intake levels for trans fat, saturated fat,

Trumbo PR1,Shimakawa T.
Author information

Tolerable upper intake levels (ULs) set by the Institute of Medicine
(IOM) are important, in part because they are used for estimating
the percentage of the population at potential risk of adverse
effects from excessive nutrient intake. The IOM did not set ULs for
trans fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol because any intake level
above 0% of energy increased LDL cholesterol concentration and
these three food components are unavoidable in ordinary diets.
The purpose of the analysis presented in this review was to
evaluate clinical trial and prospective observational data that were
not previously considered for setting a UL with the aim of
determining whether the current UL model could be used for
saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol. The results of this analysis
confirm the limitations of the risk assessment model for setting

Lets take a further step back

researchers in 2014 discovered a large number of seeds used in farming

at a site known as Ohalo II, on the Sea of Galilee, in Israel, from 23,000
years ago. Most of these seeds had scars, a mark that distinguishes
domesticated species, and a large number of plant specimens were
retrieved, with more than 140 species identified, including cereal grains
such as emmer, barley and oats

Neandertals disappearance was caused in part by a deficient dietone
that lacked variety and was overly reliant on meat. After discovering
starch granules from plant food trapped in the dental calculus on 40-
thousand-year-old Neandertal teeth, the scientists believe that
Neandertals ate a wide variety of plants and included cooked grains as
part of a more sophisticated, diverse diet similar to early modern humans.

peas, barley and wheat

Writing in the journalNature, Dobney and an international team of colleagues describe

how they analysed ancient DNA from microbes and food debris preserved in the
dental tartar, or calculus, of three Neanderthals dating from 42,000 to 50,000 years
ago. The difference was further backed up by DNA-based analysis of the diversity and
make-up of microbial communities that had lived in the Neanderthals mouths.

Neanderthals from El Sidrn showed no evidence of meat eating instead they appear
to have survived on a mixture of forest moss, pine nuts and a mushroom known as
split gill.

Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.

Craig WJ1,Mangels AR;American Dietetic Association.

Author information

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets,
including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide
health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned
vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including
pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes. A vegetarian diet is
defined as one that does not include meat (including fowl) or seafood, or products containing those
foods. This article reviews the current data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including protein,
n-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, and vitamins D and B-12. A vegetarian diet can meet
current recommendations for all of these nutrients. In some cases, supplements or fortified
foods can provide useful amounts of important nutrients. An evidence- based review showed that
vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate in pregnancy and result in positive maternal and
infant health outcomes. The results of an evidence-based review showed that a vegetarian diet is
associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease. Vegetarians also
appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure,
and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes than nonvegetarians. Furthermore,
vegetarians tend to have a lower body mass index and lower overall cancer rates.
Features of a vegetarian diet that may reduce risk of chronic disease include lower
intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole
grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals. The variability of dietary practices
among vegetarians makes individual assessment of dietary adequacy essential. In addition to
assessing dietary adequacy, food and nutrition professionals can also play key roles in educating
vegetarians about sources of specific nutrients, food purchase and preparation, and dietary
modifications to meet their needs.

Bartolotto, MA, RD

The objective of this article is to present to physicians an update on plant-
based diets. Concerns about the rising cost of health care are being voiced
nationwide, even as unhealthy lifestyles are contributing to the spread of
obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. For these reasons, physicians
looking for cost-effective interventions to improve health outcomes are
becoming more involved in helping their patients adopt healthier lifestyles.
Healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet, which we
define as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and
discourages meats, dairy products, and eggs as well as all refined and
processed foods

Physicians (18,000!) should consider recommending a plant-based diet to

all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes,
cardiovascular disease, or obesity.
