The other day I got together with a doctor from the University of Alberta and had a great conversation. I love the opportunity to talk to brilliant educated people. I always learn a lot in a short period of time. We talked a lot about different studies and the shadiness of getting studies done to prove your side of the argument. She talked about Tim Caulfield who debunks beliefs in science and shows how you can find obscure correlations and evidence in studies to prove your argument no matter what your argument might be. I’ll come back to this point; remember the name Tim Caulfield.
Last week I wrote an article talking about how 50% of articles written are 100% bullshit. I didn’t mention in that article how many studies are also crap. I have heard about half the studies are also skewed to prove a product. One of my clients is a pediatrician who studied this exact topic while getting her PhD. When I asked her what percentage of studies are false, all she said was, "A lot." and chuckled.
My number one recommendation is to use food to get as much nutrient as possible. Eat as nutrient rich foods as possible. Always take the broccoli and spinach over the french-fries and ketchup.
I work as an EMT at my second job and I worked as an EMT as my fulltime job for 10 years. I have seen all kinds of health problems and it's hard to watch when I know how to prevent health problems. The most common problem I’ve seen is abdominal pain. About half of the abdominal problems leave the hospital undiagnosed. You have to wonder why.
20 years ago Dr. Jeffrey Smith went to a lecture. A genetic engineer was talking about how they are about to genetically engineer the food supply. This engineer was intimately familiar with the technology and he said that the technology wasn’t ready for production. He said it was completely dangerous for those who eat it and for the environment. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been trying to eliminate GMOs ever since.
Holy are beans controversial! The vegans say eat them, the Paleos say don’t eat them, Timothy Ferris, author of the 4-hour body says eat them, Dr. Mark Hyman says don’t eat them. Every article I read says something different. Who’s right? I guess that depends what you are looking to accomplish with your diet.
