Hi Blog readers – just wanted to share that author and doctor Mark Hyman was on CBS News:
As I share this video – all that I am asking is for you to stay open-minded.
And again, if you are super healthy and what you are doing is working for you – then keep doing it.
But if you want to rebuild your bioterrain and really want to feel “well” – (like get off the meds, stop wearing a wig to mask bad hair problems – and just wake up with energy and a sense of feeling satisfied – well did you ever think that maybe what you are doing is not right for your body?)
I see people argue with opinion and with bias. They find research that supports (albeit weakly most of the time) their current view (called a confirmation bias). People tend to argue from what they were taught. It is normal. But we have to try to stay teachable. And the reporter here who seems to be sarcastic about the new info – and crankily complains about the “confusion” – well she seems a bit closed-minded and “set” in her ways.
Yes – new info is confusing because we have been brain-washed.
People with “conflicts of interest” helped make these food guides and paid to propagate certain messages.
Also, our human stubbornness can be a good thing – because it helps us to not get tossed to and fro by every bit of doctrine. But truth has a way of resonating and in time – we see more and more.
So remember – go slow and just chew on new ideas. Listen with a bit of openness and with the chance that maybe you have something to learn.
This is from my sugar rant post (here):
Please stay open as you explore these topics – go slow – because it takes a while to fully see things – and as Emily Dickinson said:
“Truth must dazzle gradually. Or every man be blind”
Mark Hyman’s blog is HERE and his book – which I think has tenets I mostly agree with, is called FOOD:
And guess what is next on my reading list?
The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz – my hubs just finished it and loved it:
Want to learn more from Nina? Check out this Ted Talk HERE – about the fact that we need plenty of fats – and how sadly – many scientists were silenced for decades. As the low-fat and higher sugar diets rose, so did cancer rates. This author, Nina Teicholz, also has some great info about dangerous “industrial oils” – like canola, vegetable, etc. (these oils lead to strokes, gallstones, and liver damage) – that video is HERE.
