Full-Fat Cheese Has Many Health Benefits, Including Weight Loss

Trading saturated fats for added sugars and trans fats in our diet is among the worst lifestyle alterations to occur in modern history. We now know this is a recipe for obesity, heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases.1,2

Many of these illnesses are now showing up in children, who are exposed to these ingredients even prior to birth through their mothers’ diets.

The preponderance of research shows that once you reach 18 percent of your daily calories from added sugar, there’s a 200 percent increase in metabolic harm that promotes prediabetes and diabetes.3

Fortunately, the low-fat recommendation — which flourished as a result of flawed science linking heart disease with saturated fat and the suppression of research showing sugar was to blame — is finally, albeit slowly, starting to lose its stronghold. (more…)

What do Sugar, Trans Fat, and Vaccines Have in Common?

Far too many are still swooned by false promises from people with initials like “Dr.” and “CEO” in front of their names. 

I grew up in the 1960s, inundated by commercials for margarines made from hydrogenated vegetable oils that “promised” those margarines would keep my cholesterol levels low and protect me from heart disease. Yet in 2015, nearly 50 years later, in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence of the harm they do, especially to the circulatory system and the heart, the Food and Drug Administration announced that artificial trans fats of the very sort that made up a good percentage of those margarines were no longer “generally recognized as safe,” and food manufacturers would have three years to remove these substances from their products altogether.

Stop Using Canola Oil Immediately!

Stop Using Canola Oil Immediately - Dr.Axe

It’s my hope that you’ll never use canola oil again! Why? Because of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms, see below) and the harmful side effects from the processing of this oil.

You know that olive oil comes from olives, and that sesame seed oil comes from sesame seeds. It would make sense that canola oil comes from canola seeds, right? Well, there’s actually no such thing.

It’s important to know the facts about Canola oil. A genetically modified product, canola oil is a Canadian invention that is backed by their government, cheap to manufacture, and many processed or packaged foods contain it.

Canola oil was first created in the early 1970s as a natural oil, but in 1995, Monsanto created a genetically modified version of canola oil. As of 2005, 87 percent of canola grown in the U.S. was genetically modified and by 2009, 90 percent of the Canadian crop was genetically engineered.

How Avocado Can Help with Weight Management

avocado

by Dr. Mercola

Eliminating grain carbs is one of the best and easiest ways to normalize your weight and support your health, but when you cut down on non-vegetable carbs, you need to increase your intake of healthy fats.

Avocados are an excellent source. They’re especially rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that is easily burned for energy, which you need more of once you start to remove those carbs.

Improved weight management is in fact one of the health benefits of avocado consumption, according to recent research, and its high-fat, low-sugar content is part and parcel of this effect.

On most days, I will add a whole avocado to my salad, which I eat for lunch. This increases my healthy fat and calorie intake without seriously increasing my protein or carbohydrate intake. Since avocados are also high in potassium, they will also help balance your vitally important potassium to sodium ratio.

What oil do you cook with? New study suggests it’s a question that shouldn’t just be on the lips of foodies, but also those interested in reducing their risk of cancer.



According to leading scientists who are now recommending food be fried in olive oilcoconut oilbutter or even lard,

The results of a series of experiments threaten to turn on its head official advice that oils rich in polyunsaturated fats – such as corn oil and sunflower oil – are better for the health than the saturated fats in animal products and coconut oil.

Scientists found that heating up vegetableoils led to the release of high concentrations of chemicals called aldehydes, which have been linked to illnesses including cancer, heart disease and dementia.

The Truth about Cancer

Excerpts:

Can a “health food” eaten by millions really be dangerous?

Canola oil and its derivative, rapeseed, are primary suspects for the exceptionally high incidence of Asian lung cancer[1].

According to mainstream media though, canola oil is “good for the heart” offering viable monounsaturated fats similar to olive oil. Sadly, much of what we hear in the mainstream media and various “health” blogs has been influenced by aggressive marketing tactics of big food companies.

For this reason, it is critical to know what websites to avoid and where you can go to get trustworthy and accurate health information.
