Alternative for Soy Milk

I have read the China Study and know that we should not consume animal protein or at least keep it at 5% of the daily intake.   I also have read that soy products are not what they seem, so if we should stay away from animal products and soy is not that good, what […]

does God intend for us to eat whole foods?

Today at church, they taught my favorite lesson, on “The Word of Wisdom” (7 million LDS people in the U.S. had this lesson today).   Mormons have a scripture (Doctrine & Covenants 89) revealed in 1833 that is all about what we should and shouldn’t eat.   Consider that this was almost 200 years ago, […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:   What are foods that help digestion? Some raw foodists eat raw meat.   Raw meat and milk have enzymes, so aren’t they good foods?

“the plural of anecdote is not data” . . . part 4 of 4

Third, is the study reliable?   This is the second basic research standard, and it means is the research repeatable with consistent results? Reliability is one of the best things about Colin Campbell’s The China Study, the largest nutrition study in history, which will be referenced throughout this book.   Dr. Campbell’s animal research showing […]

Is the China Study bogus?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: The Oxford-Cornell China Project is irrelevant to us, because Campbell studied rats and mice, and then Chinese people.   Not Americans.
