Perspective on Diet
Evidence and Research
The hardest part about evidence and research is accepting the information as valid. How do we determine what is true?
Often the information is misleading because of special interests. Unfortunately because we are consumers, the information is created from a bias. Sometimes the bias is a belief or beliefs embeded into our conscious and subconscious minds from others marketing to our parents, our teachers our coaches and ourselves.
So, how do we determine what is real when it comes to the foods and drinks we consume?
My belief is that we must read everyone’s research and we must look at dietary habits around the world in relation to health and longevity .
What I have learned is that disease and diet combined with lifestyle of cultures around the world needs to be our first way to really understand the big picture.
Then we look at the foods that have the least amount of transformational change from their original state. An apple no change so there was zero transformational change. All whole plants with zero change would be best. Then next would be how small can the change be like streaming some squash. After that it starts to get complicated.
I will come back to this post again, but before I leave today, most…of our health is not based on opinions and ideas. It’s based on cause and effect.
What we put into our bodies and how we treat our bodies has a direct relationship the health and diseases of tomorrow.
Until next time
