A Year Without Sugar

If you haven’t watched Forks Over Knives you should make it your evening viewing tonight.

What does it have to do with the elimination of sugar and alcohol from our diet?  Not much … but it will give you some surprising insight into the relationship between corporate interest and food policy in the United States.

The conclusion, to eat a low fat diet primarily of plants, is based on what some hail as “The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted.”  The New York Times referred to it as “the Grand Prix of epidemiology.”

Dr. Caldwell Esseltyn, who bases his dietary advice on The China Study, goes so far as to say …

“If the truth be known coronary artery disease is a toothless paper tiger that need never, ever exist and if it does exist it need never, ever progress.”

Is it true?  Can a plant based diet not only prevent, but even reverse heart disease? And if it is so, why aren’t doctors everywhere giving this advice?  And why does our “food pyramid” reflect something else altogether?

Some believe that the Department of Agriculture and even the National Academy of Sciences are not above the corrupting influence of corporate interest.

Whether you agree with the conclusions or not, the film will get you thinking more about what you put in your body, and about who is influencing those decisions.  Given the dramatic rise of diet related diseases over the last few decades, isn’t it about time we take this seriously?

 

I was just told about this diet/Forks Over Knives 2 days ago!
