Can the intelligence override the tongue?

To get a grip on why a plant-based diet is powerful medicine, you’ll need to understand that plant foods are the most abundant sources of nutrition on the planet. Nutrients are the raw materials your body needs to function properly and there are two classes:

  1. The ones the body makes by itself.
  2. The ones it can only be derived from the food you eat, aka “essential” nutrients.

Of the 13 essential vitamins, eleven are made in abundance by plants. Two that are not produced by plants are vitamins D and B12, and both are stored in your tissues for long periods of time. You can plenty of vitamin D from the sun and B12 from bee pollen and organic sulfur crystals, which enables the body to create it, as evidenced by the University of South Hampton in Great Britain.

When it comes to providing immune-boosting and cancer-fighting nutrients, there is no comparison between plant-based foods and dead, rotting, animal foods. With antioxidants being essential for good health, animal foods are low or devoid of them, while plant-based foods are rich in them and provide a huge variety of vitamins, minerals and many other health-building nutrients.

Scientists have finally discovered that the plant foods contain powerful phytochemicals, which can protect us from cancer, heart disease and many, many other serious illnesses. Not only that, but when it comes to mineral sources, plants are the primary source. Why? Because the minerals come from the earth and make their way into the food supply through the plants. The only reason animals have any minerals within them is because they eat plants.

In our intestines, we need dietary fiber that will bind with fat, cholesterol, environmental pollutants and disease-causing hormones to eliminate this crapola from our bodies. Not only that, but the fiber promotes healthy bowel elimination aka frequent doo-doo and no constipation.

I always hear arguments about calcium sources because those that argue have no clue as to the fact that plant foods are rich in calcium. The reason why meatheads lose calcium is because they eat eggs. One egg contains so much protein to develop the baby chicken, that the excess protein needs to be neutralized with calcium. The only way it can get calcium to do that is to take it from the bones. And people wonder why they get arthritis or osteoporosis.

Sometimes protein is greatly misunderstood because the plants contain protein and all the essential amino acids to build it. So, all the protein a person needs comes easily from plant foods. But, since Americans get 6 to 10 times more protein than they need from eating dead animals, that excess protein overworks the liver and kidneys causing them to become enlarged and injured, causing the bones to weaken and kidney stones to form.

What the scientists also found was that the animal proteins are damaging to the body because a lot of their amino acids contain sulfa (not related to sulfur) and is way more toxic to the liver and kidneys than veggie proteins. When you reduce your protein content via a plant-based diet, the kidneys become stronger and heal.

Carbohydrates are our primary source of energy because they provide energy for the red blood cells, cells of the kidneys and are the preferred fuel for our central nervous system, including the brain. Fat, on the other hand, is a secondary source of energy for the muscles, but is usually stored in the body for use in times of fasting.

We were designed by nature to crave carbs. Why? because their sweet flavor, energy and nutrition regulates our hunger drive. Red meat, dead chickens and turkeys, dead fish, the menstrual cycle of the chicken (eggs) and liquid fat (dairy) have little (2%) or no carbs at all. So, on an animal food diet, feeling satisfied after eating is rare and results in over-eating resulting in becoming a fat over-eater. The bottom line: if not eating enough carbs, you’ll stay hungry and put on pounds.

The unprocessed plant foods like organic quinoa, bulgur, buckwheat, brown rice, potatoes, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, and apples, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, are loaded with complex carbohydrates, which are long chains of sugars that must be broken down inside your intestine before they can be used as fuel. Their process of digestion is slow and methodical and provides a steady stream of fuel pumped into your bloodstream as long-lasting energy.

What can be better than a diet that provides you with all the nutrients you need for optimum health and a high level of vitality and endurance?

So, let me give you one last thing to chew on.

FLESH GIVES YOU                           CAUSING

High Calories                           Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer

High fat                                   Obesity, cancer, diabetes

High saturated fat                   Heart attacks, stroke

Essential fats deficiency         Degenerative diseases, multiple sclerosis

High protein                            Osteoporosis, kidney damage, stones

High acid                                 Osteoporosis, kidney stones

High cholesterol                      Atherosclerosis, strokes, heart attacks

High iron                                 Atherosclerosis, strokes, heart attacks

No dietary fiber                      Constipation, hemorrhoids, IBS

No carbohydrates                   Fatigue, poor endurance

No vitamin C                           Poor tissue healing (scurvy)

No calcium                              Poor tissues

Environmental contaminants Cancer, Parkinson’s disease, brain damage

Carcinogens from cooking      Cancer

Multiple microbe infections   Infectious disease (E. coli, mad cow)

Then the last good news is the cost to humans with deforestation, destruction of natural resources, pollution, inhumane treatment of animals – both when they are alive and when slaughtered – and it’s expensive for everyone with dramatic increases in food and medical bills.                            

All that being said, maybe now it’s time for your intelligence to override of your tongue!

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.
