"The leading cancers that affect most people, like breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancers, can literally be wiped out by superior nutrition . . . Cancer truly is a state of nutritional ignorance and poor nutrition." Do those statements get your attention? They should! They're from this super immunity podcast I listened to today featuring Dr. Joel Furhman. It's only about 25 minutes long; if you have a little spare time today, I think it's very much worth your time! If you don't have time, he's basically saying that a whole foods plant based diet promotes health and prevents illness, the exact same message of The China Study that I've been raving about for weeks now. He also has some very interesting things to say about supplementing with folic acid, which is the #1 thing I've been told to do during this pregnancy. According to Dr. Furhman, that's harmful and incorrect advice. Very interesting. Curious about the flu shot? There's info about that in this podcast as well. I for one enjoy all the scientific evidence behind health and nutrition, but if you don't like wading through all the information, take my word for it: maximize plant foods and minimize animal foods. Your body will thank you for it.
