Q: Who Are You To Trust With Your Health? A: Yourself
I keep harping on the experts in the field of diet and nutrition not being all that expert. Why? Because they are so
boneheaded dogmatic about their own beliefs they can’t see the mountains of evidence that those beliefs are wrong. The article Health Authorities Continue To Fail Us poses a great question: Who are we to trust when it comes to dietary advice?
The article is a great read that sums up that our “experts” have gotten so much wrong, much to our detriment. From calories in/calories out to saturated fat is bad — it’s all bunk.
Yet the American Heart Association, American Medical Association, nutritionist, dietitians, doctors, fitness industry, Big Pharma, the food industry…hell the whole lot continue to push the same bad advice for more than 50 years.
The results? Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and a host of other chronic diseases have skyrocketed. That isn’t evolution. It’s environmental.
The food chain, built on this advice, is slowly killing us.
Since the medical, fitness and food industry has no interest in changing, the writer of the article has a very simple solution for you — not easy — but simple:
“So who are we to trust then? The list would appear to be getting smaller every day.
Now more than ever the message is clear: if you want to truly be healthy, it’s up to the individual to do their own research and come to their own conclusions. There is a mountain of information out there to go through, and you’ll need to sift through the bias of people selling you diets, fringe groups promoting their social agenda, and the media misinterpreting real research findings.
While it may sound like too much trouble, is your health really of that little importance that you’d trust it to anyone else but yourself?”
