Last night I went to Bonobo's to hear Dr. Tim Trader speak. He's here in the NYC area for a few days giving seminars and consultations; his topic was "Where's the Research?". According to Dr. Tim 16% of health research is directly contradicted by subsequent research on the same topic. That totals up to 1/3 of so called traditional scientific health research being inconclusive. The public has been given information regarding the causes and treatments for Autism, AIDS, Diabetes, Heart Disease, and many more diseases, but yet this "evidence" is inconclusive and not based on fact.
There was a cholesterol study that showed no cholesterol increase related to the consumption of eggs. What the public wasn't told is that subjects in the study were prepped by consuming 6 eggs a day for a period of time prior to the study. This resulted in subjects being so loaded with cholesterol that the standard cholesterol test used in the study could not measure a cholesterol increase when subjects consumed even more eggs.
There were other similar controversies addressed by Dr. Tim. The bottom line is that a raw food diet works, period. When we take care of our health we don't have to worry about disease and we can stop paying attention to the overwhelm of contradictory evidence about it's cause. Healthy acts produce health.
There was a notable turnout at Bonobos. I posted some photos here in the Raw Dish! photo gallery.
