- Ophthalmologist Dr. Chris Knobbe says most chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease and macular degeneration are linked to the consumption of processed seed oils
- Knobbe says the large consumption of omega-6 seed oil in everyday Western diets is so dangerous it is “a global human experiment … without informed consent”
- Polyunsaturated fatty acids, also called PUFAs, found in vegetable oils, edible oils, seed oils, trans fat and plant oils, owe their existence to “roller mill technology,” which replaced stone mill technology and removed their nutrients
- Many people now consume 80 grams of PUFAs a day, which amounts to 720 calories and one-third of their caloric intake
- Results from studies of tribal peoples and animals have demonstrated the deleterious effects of PUFAs in the diet

Garlic is a superstar when it comes to protecting against disease — no doubt about it. How does garlic come to sit in the top spot when it comes to maintaining good health? Mostly because it is high in sulfur compounds. These compounds are potent extractors of toxic heavy chemicals in your body.

These sulfur compounds are also effective at protecting against oxidation and free radicals. Garlic is also a natural antiseptic. Continue reading

If you’re worried about how many carbohydrates you eat, you’re worried about the wrong part of your diet. Don’t think about food in terms of carbs, focus instead on eating raw, whole foods. Fruits and vegetables offer the promise of optimal wellness. Their nutrients can spell the difference between enjoying great health or succumbing to chronic disease.
To understand complex carbohydrates, think of long chains of the sugar molecules found in nearly all plant foods. The words starch, cellulose and lignin all refer to these long, relatively stiff chains of 300 to more than 1,000 sugar molecules (or even more) that are made by nature. A large amount of research has been performed trying to understand the effects that complex carbohydrate food has Continue reading

UC Davis Health System researchers have discovered biological indicators that help explain why some obese people develop chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, and others do not.
The researchers took a novel approach of looking specifically at the body fat of people with metabolic syndrome — a condition characterized by increased blood pressure, high-fasting blood-sugar levels, excess abdominal fat and abnormal cholesterol levels. They found the fat cells released biomarkers associated with insulin resistance and chronic inflammation, conditions often leading to diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
“Our study shows that not all obesity is the same and some body fat may actually be toxic,” Continue reading
