Wonderful newsletter and information. I hope to visit you next summer.
I am Diabetic and have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia recently. I am scheduled to go to a local Pain Clinic tomorrow for injections.
I have been eating well and exercising, but am still in a lot of physical pain. Is there anything you know of that will work more directly on my pain? I will keep researching, but just thought I would ask.
I'm passing your query on to Dr. Flora, who's more qualified to respond to it.
I can tell you this - diabetes and fibromyalgia respond wonderfully to raw living foods.
Fibromyalgia is considered by Dr. Hulda Clark in her book "The Cure for All Diseases". Please read it.
Here is a small part of the teleconference tonight.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell: 7/18/07: Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, who has published The China Study concerning the Chinese lack of cancers because they don't use dairy in many places. "I started out wanting to learn more about how to get higher levels of protein from animals. Then, I saw children under the age of 4 coming up with liver cancer and wanted to know why. In India, rats being experimented on for the same kind of cancers, came up with that cancer with increased intake of animal protein. Then I went to VA tech for 27 years to find the answer to the question “Was it really true that extra protein intake would turn on this type of cancer?” The animals were exposed to chemical carcinogens. Could it have been that? When fed an amount of protein in excess than what is needed for good nutrition, cancer followed. Nutrition had a dramatic effect on cancer. When higher levels of protein were fed, cancers were turned on.
Principles - The major discovery was that we could turn on cancer by feeding milk protein. The effect of cow's milk protein on initiating cancer was greater than any other kind of protein's effect, even though there were multiple mechanisms that turned it on. It was a question of plant-based protein turning cancer off. Animal protein turning cancer on.
We were involved in a large nationwide survey in the People's Republic of China. For about a dozen different kinds of cancers, the people were consuming too much protein. Lower protein intake, less cancer. We explored all manner of diseases. We explored dietary introduction of relatively small amounts of animal protein and found that it would increase heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Plant based diets - vegetables, fruits, whole grain foods - really reversed heart disease. I can't overemphasize how important a plant based diet is. For our health, use whole vegetables. Don't add salt, sugar, and fat. The closer we get to a plant based diet, the healthier we get. Health care calls are rising, mental health costs are rising. We need to promote the use of a plant based diet.
The Chinese caloric intake is high, but many generally don't eat any animal protein.
There was a question about the chemistry of animal protein. Its sulfate makes the ph of the body too acid. John MacDougall knows about this more than I. We don't need fish. Comment of listener: Dr. Mercola indicated that “EPA/DHA conversion is only made with fish oil, not with plants.” Fish have no antioxidants. No fiber. It's better to use flax seed, walnuts.
What about controlling gene expression? “I am not in support of individual nutrient supplements. I think they are a bit of a hoax”. TCC1@cornell.edu
