Nutrition

These articles address nutrition issues. There are many myths in this arena and from time to time we deal with whatever one may be in the news. Our approach to nutrition is based on The Real Diet of Man.  Our approach to food is the basic chemistry of each food item as found in the Food Analysis tables in that eBook. One of the huge failings in all the recommendations for nutritional foods in what most people read and hear is the reckless use of words that have no meaning.  Words such as "organic," "natural," and other such terms do not mean better nutrition or improved food safety. In fact, they take the consumer's eye off the ball which is food chemistry. The fundamental chemistry of the foods people eat has the greatest impact on their health and well-being. Nutritional scientists focus on food chemistry when they are doing nutritional studies. They do not refer to labels such as organic, GMO and nonGmo, or natural or local, small farm, etc.  That's because the chemistry of food has a huge impact on a body while the labels do not.

Ted Slanker’s Omega-3 Blood Test

Not only do we test the essential fatty acid profiles of our meats, we also test ourselves. Tell us how many food sources you’ve found that will do the same and report the results. If they don’t, what kind of games are they playing?

Nutrition Coalition Suggests Dietary Guidelines Made Americans Fat

This is a super article from BEEF Magazine.

Members of the Nutrition Coalition said Americans followed the government dietary guidelines at the same time obesity burgeoned.

This flies in the face of conventional wisdom, in which doctors and nutritionists tell people they are obese entirely because they eat the wrong foods and don't exercise.

Why everyone who is sure about a food philosophy is wrong

There’s an unbreachable divide between advocates of modern conventional agriculture and, essentially, everyone else, from the mainstream (organic, local, anti-GMO) to the less-so (biodynamics, permaculture, agroforestry). The parties are entrenched, the tone is partisan.

Is Organic Agriculture "Affluent Narcissism?"

This Forbes Magazine opinion piece includes several links to peer-reviewed research reports. The reason for this post is that people need to know the truth about the organic label. The unfortunate truth is that for too many people the term "organic" takes their eyes off the ball. In other words, they believe organic is the answer for superior food safety and nutrition. Yet science can't support that belief.

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

This is an assessment written by Henry I. Miller for Forbes Magazine. Dr. Miller, a physician, is the Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. He was the founding director of the Office of Biotechnology at the FDA. Drew L. Kershen is the Earl Sneed Centennial Professor of Law (Emeritus), University of Oklahoma College of Law.

Organic Pesticides: Not An Oxymoron

So often people think that organic foods are the most nutritious foods simply because they are organic.  But independent scientific analysis and comparative studies have always indicated that the differences between conventionally raised and organic are razor thin.  They are equally safe.  They are equally nutritious.  And even NPR posts an article that leads in with: It may seem counterintuitive, but foods that are grown to organic standards can contain commercially manufactured pesticides.

Many Paleo Recipes Are Nutritional Disasters

The Paleo Diet, as its cofounder Loren Cordain defined it, is being debased by marketers.  It really disturbs me when I see so many people struggle to adapt to The Real Diet of Man only to be led astray by the many marketers of Paleo recipes.  These recipes usually replicate traditional common dishes with different ingredients.  Yet when one analyzes the ingredients, the "new" dishes are still nutritional disasters.

Proper Pet Food is Going Mainstream

Proper food for pets is going mainstream and it's being driven by modern nutritional science for humans and all animals.

JAMA Report Debunks Value of Omega-3

Yesterday, September 12, 2012, The Journal of the American Medical Association, with great fanfare, published a highly flawed report that got immediate national press coverage!

The media’s interpretation of this report was similar to an ABC news report by Dianne Sawyer where she said “omega 3 fatty acids could not prevent heart disease as once thought.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

BEEF Magazine: “Perfect Human Diet Is Recipe For Good Health”

I’ll quote the author, Amanda Radke, a South Dakota rancher and Editor of BEEF Daily.  “When I cut grains from my diet, I discovered the concept of eating like a caveman and was amazed how quickly the weight came off and how easily I was able to manage my health.”

Here’s the link to the article in BEEF Magazine.
