Seems like all the talk these days is about this Netflix Documentary "What The Health"...
More alarming is how many people are making changes to their eating habits based on this documentary ...
Listen...I am all about doing the BEST thing for your Health....but I am also about science, about facts and not making choices just on opinions and feelings...
In the spirit of so many food documentaries and diet books that have come before,
What the Health promises us there is one healthy way to eat. And it involves cutting all animal products from our diet.
Meat, fish, poultry, and dairy are fattening us up, giving us cancer and Type-2 diabetes,
and poisoning us with toxins
The film fails on several accounts, and cranks the food fear sirens to irresponsibly high levels. They mischaracterizes and overstates what we know about how particular foods drive disease, by offering a narrow view of the science with cherry-picked studies to support his views. He also seeks out a slew of vegan and animal rights–friendly health professionals rather than a more balanced roster of experts, and engages in silly gotcha journalism to suggest organizations like the American Diabetes Association intentionally hide the truth about diet.
Most of us could stand to eat more fruits and vegetables and less processed meat and dairy, and a plant-based diet might be a healthy choice for many people. But with messages like “drinking milk causes cancer” or “eating eggs is as bad as smoking cigarettes,” this film isn’t going to right our health problems. It confuses what’s known in science and obscures the truths of nutrition that could actually help us live healthier lives.
SO WHAT TO DO??
HOW ABOUT SOME FACT CHECKING???
HERE IS A AN INTERVIEW WITH DR LAYNE NORTON ON THE MATTER,
