This week a non-profit charity organization, ‘The National Obesity Forum (NOF)’ published a paper entitled ‘Eat Fat, Cut the Carbs and Avoid Snacking To Reverse Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes’. This report was based upon sound scientific research and analysis of the causes of the epidemic of diseases suffered or awaiting our children in the near future. The research was the result of independent professors and researchers into the cause of diseases.
This week I saw just how evil (or simply stupid) with their abuse of our children, some in the medical system, the government (here in the UK) and the food industry is. Instead of supporting NOF they instead attacked and rubbished the report. There were many interviews with the attack dogs of the junk food industry but the official government line was the worst and most abusive of our children and their future (see my words in bold):
Professor John Newton, Chief Knowledge Officer at Public Health England, said:
“Suggesting people should eat more fat, cut out carbs and ignore calories conflicts with the broad evidence base and internationally agreed interpretations of it”. The evidence is overwhelming that a ketogenic diet (carb/sugar free) will start to reverse most diseases in just 30 days. It doesn’t need paid hirelings of the so-called food industry to ‘interpret’ getting healthy in 30 days any other way.
The report from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition on carbohydrates alone included around 600 peer-reviewed scientific reports. That review was carried out over a number of years, reflecting how long it takes to thoroughly consider evidence ahead of changing dietary guidelines. These are food industry paid or influenced reports and are meaningless.
We engage with a broad range of stakeholders when we make changes to advice, and this includes representatives of the food and drink industry. As the organisation that advises the government on dietary guidelines, it would be irresponsible for us to not engage with those who produce and market the food we all eat. This is admitting they talk to the junk food industry and consider their views and interests above those of our children and their futures.
Our priority is to advise the public, clearly and consistently, basing the advice on broad, robust and objective evidence. To improve diet, reduce obesity levels and the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and some cancers, our advice remains that people should:
- Base meals on starchy carbohydrates, especially wholegrain.
- Eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables each day.
- Cut back on food and drinks high in saturated fat, salt, sugar and calories.
This is the same old bad advice and the very diet that has caused the mass epidemic of disease over the past 60 years including Diabetes, Short-Sightedness, Macular Degeneration, Cancer, Lung Disease, Heart Disease and now brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
The diet in my books (and hundreds of other writers/researchers) prove the government, medical system and junk food industry wrong.
Sugar is the toxin that is the prime cause of disease and infections (it poisons our immune system). Sugar is starchy carbs, breads, pastry, cookies, potatoes, breakfast cereals, rice, parsnips and wheat pasta. Cut it out and replace with healthy alternatives such as Really Healthy Pasta, Sprouted Oats and Sprouted Buckwheat Flour.
