100% Pasture-fed Animal Fats: Villain or Underappreciated Superfood?
By Nora Gedgaudas, CNS, NTP, BCHN
For over 100,000 generations of human evolutionary history, our ancestral forebears led a purely hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and more research has come to light in recent years underscoring the fact that we have been mostly hunters throughout the majority of this time, between roughly 2.6 million years ago to just about 10,000 years ago when we adopted a more agriculturally-based lifestyle and began eating a more carbohydrate-based diet. The first signs of what we call the “diseases of modern civilization” began to emerge at that time, radically accelerating since then following the industrial revolution. And our supposedly short life span reduced further by roughly HALF.

There’s a Raging Epidemic – What Can You Do to Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones?  by Paul Mabry MD

The Metabolic Syndrome may not kill as fast as Ebola, but ~2/3rds of people have it!
How does the Zero Carb diet (a diet of meat, eggs, cheese and butter) I follow fit into solving this problem. I was a total sugar addict for 62 years. The literature suggests that total abstinence is the most successful strategy for beating addictions to substances. Zero Carb, in my opinion, has been shown to bring health and vitality, and it completely eliminates sugar from the diet.
The bottom line is that the health and economy of the world are being wrecked by a substance at least as addictive as heroin or cocaine – SUGAR. We all need to do something soon, or the collision with the iceberg is inevitable!

Does Meat Rot In Your Colon? No. What Does? Beans, Grains, and Vegetables!  Like most vegetarian propaganda, it’s not just false; it’s an inversion of the truth. As the proverb says, “When you point your finger, your other three fingers point back at you.” Let’s take a short trip through the digestive system to see why!

CAN HUMANS DIGEST MEAT? WRITTEN ON  BY  IN SCIENCE FOR TRUTHTRANSPLANT RELATED A common myth told by PETA and is ignorantly repeated today is the claim that humans are unable to digest meat and it, therefore, putrefies in the colon, causing disease.  I believe I may have a special insight on this one based on my unique experiences.

Fiber Menace:  Fiber Menace is for people who believe fibre prevents cancers, reduces the risk of heart disease, regulates blood sugar, wards off diabetes, lowers appetite, induces weight loss, cleanses the colon, and eliminates constipation. Tragically, none of it is true, and Fiber Menace explains why it’s the complete opposite. Most of those findings have been well known and widely publicized even before Fiber Menace’s release.

The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy that Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease. Did you know? Cholesterol is not a deadly poison. It is a substance that is vital to the cells of all mammals. There is no such thing as “good” or “bad” cholesterol, but mental stress, physical activity and change in body weight may influence the level of blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is not dangerous by itself but may reflect an unhealthy condition, or it may be totally innocent.

The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes. 

More than half a billion adults and 40 million children on the planet are obese. Diabetes is a worldwide epidemic. Evidence increasingly shows that these illnesses are linked to the other major Western diseases: hypertension, heart disease, even Alzheimer’s and cancer, and that, shockingly, sugar is likely the single root cause. Yet the nutritional advice we receive from public health bodies is muddled, out of date, and frequently contradictory, and in many quarters still promotes the unproven hypothesis that fats are the greatest evil.

The Benefits of High Cholesterol. BY 

Professor Roger Unger, University of Texas.
Hormones control weight, not calories. The human body doesn’t know what a calorie is!

Gluconeogenesis:  September 12, 2017, Raphael Sirtoli.  Step into the low-carb world, and soon enough, you’ll hear the term GlucoNeoGenesis. GNG for short, is your body’s ability to construct glucose, a kind of sugar, out of molecules that aren’t glucose. It does this to ensure that if you don’t eat any carbs, the cells in your body that need glucose will still get enough of it. It’s one reason why humans are so good at fasting or delaying death from starvation for weeks or months. We can meet our own need for glucose by producing it ourselves.

More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About Protein & Gluconeogenesis
JULY 26, 2017
So that’s what’s on tap today, kids: Gluconeogenesis. That’s right, friends, it’s time to do some myth-busting surrounding the whacked-out notion that protein—lean protein, in particular (like a skinless chicken breast or tuna canned in water)—is the metabolic equivalent of chocolate cake. (Or cotton candy, gummy bears, or any other insanely sugary thing that might raise your blood glucose and insulin far more than protein does.)
