My brother had surgery on his knee yesterday and was telling me about a conversation he had before the operation with his anesthesiologist, who happened to be from India.
“Do you have high blood pressure?”
“Do you have diabetes?”
“Do you have acid reflux?”
“You don't have any of the American diseases! 9 out of 10 patients I see who are over 50 years old have at least one of these.”
How sad and plain WRONG! Why are we accepting it?! Why aren't more of us digging for what is causing this and screaming what we find from the rooftops?!
I'm on my roof, are you?
I know it's a struggle when many aren't willing to change their eating habits, or break out of what they've always thought to be true. But some are open and ready to listen. I actually had a good chat all about butter today with the lady ringing up my groceries. She couldn't believe butter is actually good for you, but when we talked about what people have been eating for centuries on their own farms, the light bulbs were going off.
In the comments, I hope you'll tell me about the ways you are trying to get the truth out about health and nutrition.
