2010 Newsflash: Saturated Fat Does NOT Cause Heart Disease!

February 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Real-Life Results: Saturated Fat is Healthy, NOT Harmful!

Background: “A reduction in dietary saturated fat has generally been thought to improve cardiovascular health.

Conclusions: A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD.”

Life-Systems Engineering Science Commentary: The truth, completely consistent with physiology and biochemistry, is once again published, if anyone cares to look.

Consuming saturated fat does not cause heart disease!

So enjoy that steak, and everything good that goes with it!!

No, You are NOT Constipated…

When following a higher protein diet, many people mistakenly think that they are constipated because there is very little elimination. there is no pain, just no volume. Why? Because protein is so nutrient dense, there is little waste. Likewise, there is little waste with fats, either. But carbohydrates are significantly different. Because they are nonessential iin the body, and much of their bulk must be eliminated from the body, it is only the carbohydrates that generate significant waste.

Eat a big steak and nothing else. You will be shocked at how little elimination is required because humans make use of nearly all of it.

Anyoone wishing to improve their digestion and elimination through nutritional supplementation should also consider an essiac-concept tea with fulvic.

If you want to understand this better, please look to my book, “The 24-Hour Diet”. You can find it at http://www.brianpeskin.com.

Newsflash 2007: Studies Dispel Myth of Cancer-causing Red Meat…

December 11, 2009 Leave a comment

Medical News Today reported on June 5, 2007 that “red” meat does NOT promote cancer:(1)

“Recent studies published in the journal Cancer Science have disproved the myth that consumption of red meat increases colorectal cancer.

“Researchers have run a large case-controlled study in Japan, examining associations of meat, fish and fat intake with risk of colorectal cancer…

“…[F]ound that intake of beef/pork, processed meat, total fat, saturated fat or n-6 PUFA [parent omega-6] showed no clear association with the overall or subsite specific risk of colorectal cancer.
“Our findings DO NOT SUPPORT the hypothesis [guess] that consumption of red meat increases colorectal cancer risk…” (Emphasis added.)

Life-Systems Engineering Science Commentary: I have reported for over 10 years that the science is very clear that “red” meat could not be cancer-causing. Furthermore, I have been advocating meat as a 1st class protein source. “Red” meat’s natural saturated fat is burned for energy and its EFAs are used in numerous biochemical reactions. Meat’s protein is required to maximize hemoglobin’s oxygen binding. Without exception “red” meat and its associated saturated fat content are not cancer-causing. Their misinformation is based on opinion – not science.

Japan would naturally have a bias for fish since it is less expensive and more plentiful than red meat. Additionally, the study showed that fish and fish product consumption was not statistically significant in decreasing cancer. You already discovered from me why fish consumption can’t prevent cancer. Eat all the steak you want (I recommend “natural” or “organic” with no hormones or steroids used) without guilt, knowing you are eating what your body needs to remain healthy.
