Doctors Prescribing Fruits and Veggies: Why Nutrition Policy is National Priority – Blue Zones

By Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., Dean of the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, and the Jean Mayer Chair and Professor of Nutrition; , Tufts University; Jerold Mande, M.P.H., Professor of the Practice, Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and a Senior Fellow, Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life, Tufts University; and Renata Micha, Ph.D., Associate Research Professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy of Tufts University.

Health care professionals and leaders in the medical industry have started to shift the paradigm focusing on food policy, rather than medication.

In this new year, millions of Americans will make resolutions about healthier eating. In 2019, could U.S. government leaders further resolve to improve healthier eating as well, joining public health experts in seeing that food is medicine?

In 2018, Congress initiated a series of actions that represent a shift away from placing the full responsibility – and blame – on individual people to make their own healthier choices. These actions also show a growing recognition that many stakeholders – including the government – are accountable for a healthier, more equitable food system. This shift in thinking reflects an understanding that government can and should play a role in improving the diet of Americans.

As faculty members at Tufts University, our expertise spans clinical medicine, nutrition science, public health, policy analyses, Congress, federal agencies and government programs. It’s clear to us that the time is right for meaningful policy action to leverage food as medicine.

Why healthier eating is a national priority

Poor diet has caused major health problems and claimed an outsized share of federal and state budgets.

CNN Airs Hour-Long PSA On Warning Signs Of Dementia | The Babylon Bee

CINCINNATI, OH—As part of a campaign to raise awareness and improve public knowledge on treatment options, CNN aired an hour-long public service announcement on the warning signs of dementia Wednesday night.

The PSA, which ran over an hour, showed tragic footage of an old man ranting and making nonsensical, confusing statements.

CNN says they hope the footage will encourage family members of the elderly to get them tested for the early warning signs of dementia. The cable news channel displayed a phone number for a hotline people can call if they believe someone they know might be suffering from symptoms of the condition.

“If you or a loved one act like this man,” said Don Lemon, “please, we beg you, get help. Slurred speech, inaccurate statements, an inability to remember where you are—these are all signs that your loved one might be suffering from dementia, whether he’s retired or the president of the United States.”

“… and we’d take the rhubarb and we’d put it in the pie, right in the ol’ pie,” the old man said suddenly, in a rare moment of lucidity. “It was incredible. You wouldn’t think rhubarb would taste good, but it’s the sweetness. The strawberries. The strawberries. The strawberries. That’s what makes it work! Airplanes! Airplanes are neat, you know, but they’re a myth. How do they get them up there? They don’t—d-d-don’t even have feathers.”

Many of the attendees were touched by both the PSA and the old man.

Season 3 Episode 29: Dr. Alan Desmond – Part 2 – 97% of the USA is Deficient in This. Are You? — PLANTSTRONGPodcast.com

On a day-to-day basis, we can choose what kind of microbiome we’re going to build. Rip and Dr. Desmond explain how a healthy microbiome not only affects our physical health, but also our emotional well-being.

This week, we get into the nitty-gritty of gut health with Part Two of our conversation with Gastroenterologist, Dr. Alan Desmond. If you missed part one with Dr. Desmond’s Top 10 Prescriptions for Better Health, we highly recommend a listen!


Let me ask you this — “Where do you get your fiber?” If your first answer is Metamucil or any other fiber supplement, this episode is for you.

So many of us have what is known as a “carcinogenic microbiome.” It’s an unfortunate truth that millions are walking around with a gut filled with cancer-promoting cells. Not only is this leading to so many of the preventable chronic lifestyle diseases, but also debilitating mental and cognitive issues like depression, anxiety, dementia, and alzheimer’s.

BUT, here’s the great news. The studies also tell us that the more fruits and vegetables we consume, the higher our levels of optimism and the lower our levels of depressive symptoms.

How is that possible? Dr. Desmond and Rip explain the why and how.

Today, I’m also going to be your personal “Physician’s Assistant” right alongside the amazing Dr. Alan Desmond, Gastroenterologist and author of the new book, “The Plant-Based Diet Revolution.” My parents have been raving about him so much and, today, you’ll see why. His knowledge and expertise of gut health and the microbiome is SO vast that we’re actually breaking our conversation into a two-part series because we want you to (pun intended) digest everything he says.
From the get-go, Dr. Desmond lays out some sobering statistics for gut health in the US…1 in 3 adults under the age of 50 have diverticular disease, colorectal cancer will affect more than 1 in 20 adults in their lifetimes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is off the charts…
If all health begins in the gut, then the US needs a major overhaul and that’s what we’re here to do over the next two weeks.
In part one today, we whip out the prescription pad and give you real Doctor’s orders…The Top 10 Prescriptions for Better Health. But, unlike most prescriptions that simply treat the problem, these prescriptions will get to the root and help you solve these problems.
The best part? They don’t involve taking more pills…just beautiful, nutritious, whole plant-based foods, the optimal diet for health and longevity. Ok, my friends. The Doctor is in and it’s your turn to spend some quality time with Dr. Alan Desmond.

Why Scientists Fear To Speak Out About GMO Food Safety And How Climate Change Science Differs | Attorney Steven Druker | The Real Truth About Health

Steven Druker is a public interest attorney who founded the Alliance for Bio-Integrity and, as its executive director, initiated a lawsuit that forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to divulge its files on genetically engineered (GE) foods. This revealed that politically influenced administrators had covered up the extensive warnings of their own scientists about the abnormal risks, misrepresented the facts, and then allowed these novel products onto the market without requiring the testing that’s mandated by federal food safety law.

He is a prominent commentator on the risks and regulatory issues of GE foods and has served on the food safety panels at conferences conducted by the National Research Council and the Food and Drug Administration and has been a featured speaker at symposia at the British House of Commons and the National Congress of Brazil and at press conferences sponsored by the Brazilian Medical Association, the Swedish Consumers Association, and the Green Party members of the European Parliament.
