Like Dr. Oz, Men's Health is in the entertainment business.
So why am I reading it? Because it's my responsibility as an author and a blogger to know what's going on out there. So I subscribed about two years ago and usually find something of interest when it arrives at my doorstep every month.
But, after two years of scanning the magazine, I have not seen a single article about the heart disease-reversing power of eating mostly whole, plant-based foods. As with the Dr. Oz show, this magazine is in the entertainment business and, when it comes to truly promoting health, confusion reigns supreme over clarity.
But this month; a glimmer of hope? (October 2011 shown here) There is a lengthy article by Matt Goulding entitled "A Meat Lover's Guide to Vegetables." (See link below). At first, I think that he may be about to give up meat for good but then I see that it's just a 31-day challenge that he's decided to undertake. The article begins:
I AM A SHAMELESS CARNIVORE. I have odd pig parts in my freezer, homemade duck prosciutto hanging from my basement rafters, molten bovine bone marrow commingling with my own. But nevertheless, I am about to do the unthinkable.
