Whole foods verses supplements

Steven E. Nissen, M.D. Chairman, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine;

Cleveland, Clinic says:

If every American followed the dietary and lifestyle guidelines in the Healthy Lifestyle book, some marvelous things would happen. Heart disease would be reduced dramatically; Diabetes would diminish to manageable proportions. People would live longer and need less medical care. Whole wings or our hospitals would have to be shut down. I, and most of my colleagues, could be thrown out onto the streets, unemployed. It would be the happiest day of my life.

These are powerful words from the heart-care program that U.S. News & World Report has ranked as the world’s best twelve years in a row. I think they are on the verge of applying the same thinking to foods like white flower and milk that have been processed and some nutrients have been altered or removed. They already recommend one percent milk for most people. Dairy products and white flour go into much of our processed foods. We add back a few nutrients that may not be as good as the original ones and call it fortified—strange, yes very strange indeed.
