Expanded Discussion Topics:

  • Checking Children’s Cholesterol
    Risk factors that correlate with the extent of such early lesions are the same risk factors that correlate with [heart attacks] later in life.” In other words, it’s the same disease, just in the early stages. Pathologists are seeing all this coronary artery disease in younger people and children.
  • Animal Protein and Stress Hormones
    A single meal high in animal protein can nearly double the level of stress hormone in the blood within a half hour of consumption—much more than a meal closer to the recommended level of protein. Give someone a meal of crabmeat, tuna fish, or cottage cheese, and the stress hormone levels shoots up.
  • Breast Cancer Risk and Soy
    Eating soy foods appears to protect against the cancer coming back. Women who ate the most soy had a 29% lower risk of dying from breast cancer, and a 36% lower risk of cancer recurrence. Soy food intake is associated with longer survival and lower recurrence among breast cancer patients. With an average intake of soy phytonutrients above 17 milligrams a day, which is about what’s found in a single cup of soy milk, the mortality of breast cancer may be able to be reduced by as much as 38%.
  • Treating PCOS with Diet 
    The highest AGE levels are found in broiled, grilled, fried, and roasted foods of mostly “animal origin.” Is it possible that this causal chain starts with a bad diet—like lots of fried chicken—which leads to obesity, which then, in turn, leads to PCOS?
  • Meat & Type 1 Diabetes 
    Studies that have followed thousands of “mother-child pairs” found that eating meat during breastfeeding was associated with an increased risk of both preclinical and full-blown type 1 diabetes by the time their child reached age 8. They thought it might be the glycotoxins—the AGEs found in cooked meat—that can be transferred through breastfeeding.
