This is an article from the Rushville Republican. I was reading it over coffee,after my breakfast full of protein (and when I say protein, I mean turkey and eggs including their nutrient rich yolks – not a breakfast shake), carbs (and when I say carbs, I mean vegetables – not a whole wheat muffin), and fat (and when I say fat, I mean olive oil). I am not “slashing my risk,” but I am preventing cancer by maintaining my diet with MEAT, VEGETABLES, NUTS, SEEDS, FRUIT, HERBS, SPICES.
Does this move you in any way?
It moves me. Someone really close to me has some colon problems. So, instead of having the routine colon check once out of 10 years (covered by insurance), she’s at risk for colon cancer and now has to pay to have frequent colon checks. Her doctor tells her not to eat things with little seeds in it because they can get lodged and infect her colon. So no stawberries, blueberries, blackberries, tomato innards – these are some of the best fruits that have vitamins and antioxidants to help keep her insides clean and boost her immune system.
People know they need to exercise. People know they need to eat right
So, your doctor tells you to start working out and eating right. First, get moving. No excuses. Run in place during American Idol commercials. Whatever. You need to just move. Next, WHAT IS EATING RIGHT? With all those 100 calorie packs, diet sodas, cheesecake flavored yogurts, whole grain anything, oatmeal (ugh! It’s not healthy!) and lean frozen dinners (double ugh!) . Are you seeing results with this stuff? Are you seeing results with this stuff after 1 year? Did you know you’ll gain 5-10 pounds within the next 5 years? D you still fluctuate pant sizes seasonally?
Big corporations are making money off your addictions by making things mini or baked. Talk shows are enabling this behavior by telling you you are OK the way you are. The way you are is at risk for CANCER.

Change your life. Order the The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. You should want to be a person who turns their life around and is no longer a statistic in any “at risk” category.
