Dr. Keith Roach, in his daily column to a heart disease victim, recommended “a diet based mostly on plants, with the option of adding whole grains, fish, nuts, fruits and lean meat sources such as skinless chicken.” He did emphasize low sugar foods but then said “commercial red meat” should be limited to no more than two servings per week. He concluded that “this diet is likely to reduce risk of further events.”
This is another arena where the news confuses rather than educates. Or commentary attempts to expose how various organizations continue to steer the consumer into following the same old habits he has always followed. If we are going to change the way Americans eat, that doesn't mean we just rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. We have got to literally change the foods we eat. It's impossible to expect something to be different if we continue to do what we've always done.
Everyone has a different idea of what is and is not food. They never stop to think that for all of time fruit was highly seasonal. The same for nuts. They do not understand that modern fruit is far and away sweeter than the old fruits prior to man's invention of farming and plant and animal breeding. They have no idea that the only food for man and beasts that was around 365 days a year was either green leafy plants and animals. (Yes, grasses can even grow under the snow or are "preserved" under the snow and ice.)
