The raw truth about the government-funded slave market conspiracy…
Hardly a week passes that there isn’t an article from some university center about how fruits and vegetables will help you live forever. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating, but the incessant health claims tied to fruits and vegetables are just as ridiculous.
I recently came across a number of “studies” that prove my point exactly. One said that cocoa contains a bioactive nutrient that helps the blood vessels to relax. Another said that whole grains are vital for older adults. And still another claimed that apple juice appears to protect against memory loss. And here’s the kicker–fruits and vegetables are supposed to cut your stroke risk.
Now, I’m not saying that grains, cocoa, apple juice, and fruits and vegetables are bad. I’m just saying don’t bet your life on them–because these findings are based on statistical studies that prove nothing. They’re usually based on telephone questionnaires conducted by people who don’t have the slightest clue about medicine or the scientific method and who certainly know nothing of the unreliability of statistics in medicine.
But for the sake of saving space, and since these scattershot studies are pretty much identical, I’m just going to take aim at the one published in my favorite medical journal: the Lancet.
After analyzing data from 257,500 people, researchers at the University of London determined that eating three to five portions of fruits and vegetables per day reduced the risk of having a stroke by 11 percent. Eating more than that reduced the risk even further–by 26 percent, so they said.
The lead researcher, Dr. Feng He, went even further and said that a diet including lots of fruits and vegetables was also likely to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers. Really? How do you know that, Dr. Feng He? Show me the proof that veggies and fruit have these magic powers. How do you know what your experimental herd of humans actually eats? You don’t.
What I mean is this: Without doing a controlled study, it’s impossible to determine anything. Take portion size, for example. I know that at least in my family, what my wife Melissa considers to be a reasonable serving size looks like bird food to me. And how are these people preparing their varying portions? Are they raw? Steamed? Boiled to death with whatever nutrients were present dumped down the drain in a stream of green-tinted water?
I don’t know. But the biggest problem is that the researchers themselves don’t know either. And without those vital details, how is it possible to claim anything–especially something as strong as preventing strokes?
And did you ever wonder how the researchers from the University of London managed to study 257,500 people from Europe, Japan, and the U.S.? I’ll tell you how–they did it through the magic of meta-analysis. In other words–they didn’t study them at all. Meta-analysis is a method of bunching together a group of previous studies–eight in this case–of people with different cultures, eating habits, languages, and social habits.
Into this you must throw in all the different methods and biases of each research group. Then all of this simulacrum, with at least 25 variables, is poured into a statistical blender and given a good churn. From this smoothie, the experts interpret the data according to their own prejudices. This is not science. It’s propaganda. You’d be better to stick with eating meat from naturally raised animals, drinking raw milk, and enjoying one of my favorite foods: the all-American hotdog.
You know what I think? This is a conspiracy from the universities, governments, and the food cartels to turn all of us into thumb-sucking vegetarians. All of us government slaves will be cheaper to feed and will never live long enough to realize that these evil pinheads and power junkies poisoned us with fluoridated kibble, and meat-free, nutrition-free prison slop.
Why don’t they reinvent the wheel and do research on the perfect diet offered by animal-based food products? They can start by reading my book, The Raw Truth About Milk (formerly The Milk Book). Better still, they should read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Price and Pottenger. I guarantee you these two books alone will change anyone’s thinking on nutrition and will thus change their life. It’s never too late: I converted to raw food (or semi-raw in the case of meat) 30 years ago, and I still have my gall bladder, my appendix, my prostate, at least half my brain, and a 32-year-old wife to boot. Not too bad for 80.
