Are you accelerating towards disease and old age?

If you ask most people they want to prevent disease and stay young for as long as possible. However, their actions actually have been pressing on the accelerator towards disease and old age.

Lifestyle and nutrition have been proven by a mountain of evidence to be the cause of disease and premature aging as well as the key to prevention. There is no guessing any longer. You have the power to take control of your health and prevent disease and in many cases reverse it.

The medical system doesn't take nutrition seriously because of money, ego, power and control. But you had better take it seriously if you care at all about the quality of your life.

There has been much research done in regards to protein and cancer. Aflatoxin is one of the worst carcinogens. It has been found that a low protein diet inhibited the initiation of cancer by aflatoxin, regardless of how much of this carcinogen was administered to animals. Do you understand this and how amazing it is? No matter how much of this horrible cancer causing agent was given to animals a low protein diet inhibited cancer from forming!

Dietary protein had such a powerful effect that cancer could be turned on and off simply by changing the level of protein consumed. Now when I refer to protein here I am talking about animal protein. Animal proteins were the problem. Protein from plants were safe. The protein that consistently and strongly promoted cancer was casein which makes up 87% of cow's milk protein. Casein promoted all stages of the cancer process.

People who eat the most animal based foods get the most chronic diseases. It has been shown in study after study that the best diet for health is vegan. If you care at all about your health eliminate animal products. You will not only be doing the most good for yourself but also the planet. Livestock is a huge problem for global warming. You hear more and more about water shortages. Did you know that it takes 12,000 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef? It also takes 22 pounds of grain to produce this 1 pound of beef. There is also a huge pollution problem with the waste from all the livestock that is raised simply for slaughter so that people can consume it and then can become sick.

You can get all the protein that you need from plant sources. Did you know that all plants have all of the amino acids necessary in varying amounts?

High cholesterol levels are not only associated with heart disease but also with cancer. As intake of animal protein goes up so does cholesterol. As intake of plant based foods go up cholesterol goes down. Animal products are also linked to plaque in arteries. The people who eat the most animal protein have the most heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

There are many chemicals that cause disease. Indeed, 90-95% of our exposure to these chemicals comes from consuming animal products.

How would you like to not have to worry about:
* Heart disease
* Obesity
* Diabetes - Type I and Type II
* Cancer
* Arthritis
* Auto Immune diseases
* Osteoporosis
* Kidney problems
* Eye diseases
* Alzheimers

It's as simple as getting the animal products out of your diet. Get started on a diet based on organic vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes and whole grains and you will see a world of difference in how you feel and your energy level. For good health go vegan!
