Dr. McDougall's 10 Diet-Induced Changes That Slow and Reverse Cancer

Dr. McDougall's 10 Diet-Induced Changes That Slow and Reverse Cancer

While doing some reading on Dr. John McDougall's website, I came across a list of 10 recommended dietary changes that can help to reduce cancer risk and reverse cancer in patients already feeling the effects. This is some seriously powerful stuff, and goes to show how a whole foods, plant-based diet can really have a positive impact on our bodies. In this specific case, reducing the risk of cancer (or effects of cancer) is powerful given how many of us have lost important people in our lives to the cancer battle. It is great to know that it is, for many, avoidable and treatable by changing our dietary core. 

How Lobbying Ruined the US Dietary Guidelines

How Lobbying Ruined the US Dietary Guidelines

The 2015 US Dietary Guidelines have been determined to be the result of lobbying and lies.

It's not hard to imagine this being the truth, given how big business tends to have a big say in policies in the United States. There is a significant impact of our society when the government cannot take a truly objective stance, especially in regards to things that directly impact our daily lives. The food we eat is one of the most significant things we can discuss, so when we talk about it, we should be sure to eliminate as much bias as possible.
