One would think that any
doctor that had a brain would encourage their patients to stay healthy. The
problem is that most doctors rely on the “take-a-pill” mentality, which leads
to people being overweight and carrying bags full of various Rx drugs.
Let’s say there are doctors
out there that truly care about the health of their patients. Where do hey get
their “health” information from? From the fraudulent pharmaceutical industry
that only cares about profit. The only way they can profit
Is by sickness.
These companies spend
billions and higher thousands to talk about the amazingly low benefits derived
from taking their drugs designed to keep people sick.
Yet, every ad you see on TV praises
the benefits of the drug, while the horrific side effects are minimized by
happy, smiling, well paid-off actors.
In 2001, $154 billion was
spent by the “tricks” on meds that basically do more harm than good. Yet, the desperate “tricks” are led to
believe that these “miracle” pills will save them. Had they been told the truth
and took matters in their own hands, they would be healthy without taking
The drug “hookers” (big
pHarma execs) absolutely know what they are doing. They know that the majority
of their drugs only WORK, at best, in 50% of the “tricks”. The word WORK does
not mean CURE. It simply means that a symptom can possibly be temporarily
So, they come up with words
like “antihypertensive” or “antidiabetic” or antibiotic, making people believe that
their drug will get rid of hypertension, diabetes, or high blood pressure. The
reality is the these artificial, synthetic, health destroying meds are, in
fact, a direct source of death, disability and suffering.
Some other exciting benefits
of these healing synthetics are visits to the emergency room. And what are the
best meds taken to achieve these ER visits? NSAIDs, antiplatelets, seizure
meds, antidiabetics, diuretics, beta-blockers, inhaled corticosteroids, and
Back in 2004, there was a guy
who was an associate science director of the Office of Drug Safety. He was “bounced” when he tried
to have a study he had done regarding the horrors of Vioxx. He presented
reports from Merck indicating that between 88,000 and 139,000 Americans had
heart attacks or strokes from Vioxx, and that between 30 %-40% died from taking
the drug. He also described the FDA as incapable of stopping dangerous drugs
from coming to and staying on the market, and that the FDA’s role in reviewing
and approving new drugs conflicted with its duty to address safety issues.
The following info on Rx drug
dangers has been supplied by Dr. John McDougall who I had the good fortune of
meeting in the early 80s in Hawaii. Because Dr. McDougall emphasized proper
plant-based diets he was not popular with others in his profession in Hawaii.
So, he bailed and resurfaced successfully in California. He also had been a
guest on my radio show many times.
Graham also listed five
dangerous drugs that brought in about $2 billion in annual sales. They were:
ACCUTANE: An acne drug that
promoted birth defects and fetal death when used during pregnancy. Annual
sales- = $383 million.
BAXTRA: A painkiller and
arthritis med that doubled the risk of heart attack and strokes. Annual sales –
CRESTOR: A cholesterol
lowering med that created severe muscle damage and kidney failure. Annual sales
– $129 million.
MERIDIA: A weight loss drug
that caused strokes and heart attacks, and in pregnant women, stillbirths,
miscarriages and birth defects.
SEREVANt: An asthma treatment
that killed people rather than heal their asthma. Annual sales – $708 million.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE that honorable physicians WILL NOT prescribe.

Your life is in your hands.
When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.
Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.
After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.
Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.
I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.
So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".
Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.
I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.
But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.
The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.
But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.
So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.
Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.
I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.
Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.
A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.
In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.
My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.
I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.
Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.
The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.
Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
