Effectively Fighting Disease Risk Despite Science Controlled By Corporate Interests | T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. | The Real Truth About Health

“For decades T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. has been at the forefront of nutrition education and research. Dr. Campbell’s expertise and scientific interests encompass relationships between diet and disease, particularly the causation of cancer. His legacy, the China Project, is one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology.”

Dr. Campbell is the coauthor of the bestselling book The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health, and author of the New York Times bestseller Whole, and The Low-Carb Fraud. He is featured in several documentaries including the blockbuster Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, Food Matters, Plant Pure Nation and others. He is the founder of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the online Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate in partnership with eCornell.

Dr. Campbell has conducted original research both in laboratory experiments and in large-scale human studies; received over 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding (mostly with NIH), served on grant review panels of multiple funding agencies, actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy, authored over 300 research papers and given hundreds of lectures around the world.

He was trained at Cornell University (M.S., Ph.D.) and MIT (Research Associate) in nutrition, biochemistry, and toxicology. Dr. Campbell spent 10 years on the faculty of Virginia Tech’s Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition before returning to Cornell in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair as the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry in the Division of Nutritional Sciences.

How long do I have to take this pill? | Stephanie Spencer

Have you ever been sitting in the exam room with your doctor as he or she is reviewing your lab work?  They discuss your health risks due to your weight/cholesterol/blood pressure/ blood sugar numbers and recommend starting or adding another pill since your attempted dietary changes thus far haven’t worked.  And you ask…

How long will I have to take this pill?

When you ask your doctor this question, you may notice a suppressed chuckle or a flash of surprise across their face.  That’s because they usually assume your underlying problem (heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure) will never, ever go away.  We will have to “manage” it for the rest of your life until you progress to a point where you need invasive procedures or suffer a life-altering event or injury such as a heart attack or stroke that can greatly diminish the quality of your life and your ability to care for yourself.   I’m a cardiac RN and I spent about 20 years in the field of “chronic disease management” caring for individuals suffering from heart failure.  And that’s the problem-we are so busy “managing” these diseases that everyone seems to have that we don’t focus on the cause of the problem (it’s the food), or even know that we can reverse the underlying conditions that cause these diseases.  Many in the medical field don’t even know that diseases like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease have been demonstrated to be reversible with a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet through many randomized controlled clinical trials published in the Lancet, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and many more. Through the work of Plant-Based Pioneers such as Dr’s T. Colin Campbell,  Caldwell Esselstyn, and Neal Barnard, I learned that many of these chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and Type 2 diabetes were frequently reversible on a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet.  But at the time, I wasn’t quite ready to switch to that diet myself because I figured my husband and I were “pretty healthy” and besides, I had three teenage aged boys in the house. Until one day, my husband came home from the doctor with blood work showing that he was in fact,  pre-diabetic. This was a huge wake-up call for me. I had spent my entire working life trying to “manage” patients who were frequently ill with what started as diabetes and just kept getting sicker and sicker until they could no longer care for themselves. I vowed that this would never happen to my husband.  So without waiting for anyone’s (meaning my kids’) blessing, I just quit purchasing meat and dairy at the store. And believe it or not, it really wasn’t that hard! We learned to eat a lot of exciting new ethnic food, incorporated fiber-filled whole grains and legumes in our diet, watched as the pounds fell off of our bodies and enjoyed never being hungry in between meals for the first time in our lives.  And after 4 months, we rechecked Paul’s blood-work and his pre-diabetes had been reversed!  After Paul’s massive health transformation, and realizing how easy it is to eat the food that makes us the healthiest, I obtained a Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through Cornell University.  And now I want to be able to share this life-changing information with everyone!

The Role of Epigenetics in the Obesity Epidemic Michael Greger M.D. FACLM

Amazingly, a baby born to an obese surrogate mother with a skinny biological mom may harbor a greater risk of becoming obese than a baby from a big biological mom born to a slim surrogate.

DOCTOR’S NOTE

A few weeks ago, I had a video about The Best Diet for Weight Loss & Disease Prevention. But what triggered the whole obesity epidemic? It’s a multitude of factors, and I covered many of them in my 11-video series on the epidemic:

There are other ways by which we are what our moms ate:

Transformation Tuesday: Nick Berman — Plant-Strong Podcast with Rip Esselstyn

Featuring NY Firefighter, Nick Berman – As seen in “The Game Changers”

Welcome to a BONUS “Transformation Tuesday” edition of the Plant-Strong Podcast! Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to share this inspirational series dedicated to showcasing some of my new friends and their remarkable, plant-strong stories.

It’s our hope that these bonus clips inspire and motivate you because, as you’ll hear, cutting out all the meat and dairy and adopting a whole food plant-based diet may not be easy at first, is massively life-changing from the inside out. Believe me when I say these people are just like you.

You may recognize Nick Berman from one of the climactic scenes in The Game Changers. He, along with other members of the FDNY, had just completed the Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Challenge and Nick was blown away by how far his cholesterol had tumbled. These results ARE typical.

Today, you won’t believe how far he’s come! I hope you enjoy this episode—and the surprise cameo by the one-and-only Jon Stewart!

“But where do you get your protein?” Free Webinar with Stephanie Spencer!

“But where do you get your protein?”

This was the question that always kept me from considering a Plant-Based diet for years.  I  had always enjoyed cooking and appreciated really good food. And I assumed people that followed this kind of diet ate a lot of fake processed meat and dairy products. But then my husband developed pre-diabetes and after a long career as a cardiac RN, I knew it was time for us to take drastic action…. 

I had heard that a Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) Diet could reverse diabetes from watching the documentary What the Health about a year earlier.  I had spent decades caring for patients whose quality of life was devastated by chronic disease, the most common of which was diabetes.  It leads to heart attacks, chronic wounds, blindness, amputations, and kidney and heart failure.  In fact, when I ran a heart failure clinic, of the over 200 patients that we managed at any one time, I could just about count on one hand the number of patients that weren’t diabetic.  And what I did for a living (really what we all do in the medical field) is play “whack-a-mole” for all eternity by treating problems that are really just symptoms of a disease-promoting Standard American Diet. 

But after we switched to a Whole Food Plant-Based diet (WFPBD), I came to understand that this way of eating (I don’t even like to call it a “diet” anymore-it just seems second nature now) could also greatly improve and frequently reverse many other issues that become almost universal as we hit middle age and beyond: high cholesterol levels, heart disease, erectile dysfunction,  high blood pressure, lower back pain, gastric reflux, fatty tumors, and weight gain.

My husband and I both lost 20# without even really trying because we were never hungry on this high fiber, high nutrient diet.  And within four months, we rechecked Paul’s bloodwork and his pre-diabetes was reversed!

So now we enjoy foods like bean and mushroom chili, air fried potatoes, delicious smoothies, hearty oatmeal with fruit and nuts, and delicious new Mexican, Asian, Italian, Mediterranean and Indian dishes. Even mouth-watering desserts like pumpkin or banana ice cream, black bean Mexican chocolate brownies, and more! We eat much more exciting food now than I ever used to cook before, and enjoy the health benefits of finally maintaining a normal body weight without effort, and with no evidence of any chronic disease.  Turns out, instead of taking the “whack-a-mole” symptom-management approach with drugs, interventions, and surgeries, it is just so much more effective to treat the cause!   

After seeing Paul’s amazing health transformation, I went on to get a

Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition, and now I want to share

this life-changing information with everyone!

So click below and join me in a free live webinar to learn how you can transform your health for good by treating the cause instead of the symptoms!

Be well,

The Harmful Side Effects of Whey Protein – Center for Nutrition Studies | T. Colin Campbell

Those who consume whey protein supplements may not feel the effects now, but given the complications with liver and kidney function, they may fall victim to serious health issues later in life, and not even know it was connected to their whey-consuming, gym-going days.

True athleticism isn’t about being stronger or faster—it’s about longevity. Some shine bright and fizzle out quickly, while others can keep going for years. It’s not about how good you are in your prime, it’s about how long you can stay in your prime. Many professional athletes have discovered that a dairy-free diet is key to enhancing their performance and maintaining their peak for years past their expected retirement age. These leaders are moving the needle toward plant-based fuel in sport, but the misconception surrounding dairy and performance nutrition still lingers. Whey is still the most commonly used protein supplement by athletes and trainers according to a just-released paper, “Whey protein supplementation and its potentially adverse effects on health: a systematic review.” [1] Per the review’s title, whey protein is not the healthy muscle-maker that marketing makes it out to be.

What Is Whey Protein?

Whey is one of the proteins found in cow’s milk and other dairy products. (Continue reading …)
