Unfortunately, you won't find it in the New York Times.
But you will find it here. Last week, Dr. Mark Hyman was in the news from coast-to-coast. For what?
For publicizing the fact that he has convinced Bill Clinton to stop being a vegan.
Like so many celebrity doctors out there, Hyman never gets real clear about what people should be eating. They always seem to leave the door open for their patients to indulge in what most people really want to eat---meat, dairy and fish.
He and other celebrity doctors routinely promote the consumption of lean cuts of meat, low fat dairy and fish---the kinds of foods that are featured in all the high protein "diets of the month." Atkins, Dukan, South Beach, Paleo and others. But here's the deal:
Even if the Paleo diet was the absolute healthiest of all possible diets for humans (which it definitely isn't)---it doesn't really matter---because it is grossly unsustainable for very much longer. Requiring such enormous amounts of land and water per calorie, we'd need three planet Earths if all seven billion of us chose to eat that way. ---J. Morris Hicks
But that doesn't matter to the celebrity docs who're only out to please their power patients like Bill and Hillary. They can't be bothered by the fact that the raising of livestock is the leading cause of global warming. Besides, what chance does Hillary stand to get elected president if there are rumors floating around that she and Bill might be vegan?
Time out for INTEGRITY. Meanwhile, we have medical doctors like Jim Conway, an orthopedic surgeon who knows from personal experience---all about the power of whole, plant-based foods to reverse chronic diseases like our nation's #1 killer, heart disease. And he makes it CRYSTAL clear for all of his patients. You see, he's more interested in promoting their health than he is in winning elections or keeping the meat, dairy and pharmaceutical industries happy.
