The Plant-Based paper from Kaiser Permanente is a HUGE breakthrough.
Plant based diets recommended by Kaiser Permanente Study
Yesterday’s blogpost about Kaiser Permanente’s breakthrough paper on plant-based nutrition is likely to put the fear of God in the leadership teams at the Big Pharma and Big Food industries. It appears to be the first chink in the armor of our vast, interconnected “system” of healthcare, pharmaceuticals, food producers, health-insurors, media, nutritional science, medical schools and government.
Up until now, all of the pieces of this deadly “system” appeared to be in lockstep with the lame and ineffective dietary advice as created by our USDA. You’re very familiar with the phrase about the “lean cuts of meat, wild fish and low fat dairy.”
That phrase is ubiquitous. It’s on every major “disease specific” website like the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association.
Finally some much needed CLARITY from the “system”
In their Spring 2013 Journal, America’s largest managed care company and hospital system has taken a bold stand on the superiority of plant-based nutrition to promote health. This is big news and deserves widespread distribution. Please share this blog with your doctor.
“Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients…encouraging whole, plant-based foods and discouraging meats, dairy products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods.”
Background. Although our medical doctors receive little if any nutritional training in med school, they are the primary gatekeepers when it comes to advising patients about what they should be eating. And since most of the doctors eat the Standard American Diet (the S.A.D.) themselves, naturally that is what they advise their patients to eat. That practice has resulted in the sickest nation on Earth with by far the highest cost of healthcare. But things are finally beginning to change.
Plant Based Diets Recommended by Kaiser Permanente Study
The objective of this article is to present to physicians an update on plant-based diets. Concerns about the rising cost of health care are being voiced nationwide, even as unhealthy lifestyles are contributing to the spread of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Forthese reasons,physicianslooking for cost-effective interventionstoimprove health outcomes are becoming more involved in helping their patients adopt healthier lifestyles.Healthy eatingmaybebest achievedwithaplant-baseddiet,whichwedefine as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy
products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods.We present a case study as an example of the potential health benefits of such a diet. Research shows that plant based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates. Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients,
especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity
Today Brian McNamara, of Army Wives and costar on The Glades with Marilu, joins her in Miami, Florida to discuss the show and other topics before going to the filming.

Editor’s Note: You may have heard Marilu and her guests hosts talk about this today!
Linneah sat at a desk at the Center for Sexual Medicine at Sheppard Pratt in the suburbs of Baltimore and filled out a questionnaire. She read briskly, making swift checks beside her selected answers, and when she was finished, she handed the pages across the desk to Martina Miller, who gave her a round of pills.
The pills were either a placebo or a new drug called Lybrido, created to stoke sexual desire in women. Checking her computer, Miller pointed out gently that Linneah hadn’t been doing her duty as a study participant. Over the past eight weeks, she took the tablets before she planned to have sex, and for every time she put a pill on her tongue, she was supposed to make an entry in her online diary about her level of lust.
“I know, I know,” Linneah said. She is a 44-year-old part-time elementary-school teacher, and that day she wore red pants and a canary yellow scarf. (She asked that only a nickname be used to protect her privacy.) “It’s a mess. I keep forgetting.”
