Dr. Mercola Is Another Dumbbell -Roger Mason
article Dr. Mercola is Wrong in our free library. He finally admitted one third of people are metabolically meant to eat whole grains. He claims that, “millions of people” come to his website every day. What a lie! Go to www.quackwatch.com to learn more about him. You have to sign up and register to get his newsletter or read any of his articles. Why? We certainly don’t do that. He is rated by Alexa as 587 of all websites in America! This is so popular because he tells people what they want to hear. Go there if you need a good laugh. He has been promoting the deadly Atkins diet (read the Dr. Atkins article) for two decades now.
There are five planks in his natural health platform:
- Eating fat does not make you fat. Eating whole grains makes you fat.
- A low-fat diet is dangerous to your health.
- Whole grains like brown rice raise your blood sugar and give you diabetes.
- Eat all the meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products you want.
- Cholesterol doesn’t count, and low cholesterol is actually dangerous.
- Soy foods are poisonous and carcinogenic
Is this guy insane or what? Folks, this is a guaranteed road to sickness and early death. This is just the "Paleolithic Diet", but with dairy. (Read Paleo Diet article.) Both are ketogenic diets. Ketosis is a disease state! These people love the meaningless words "carbohydrates" or "carbs", instead of the correct term “whole grains”. They hate whole grains, and even beans and legumes. The ketogenic crowd claims whole grains cause diabetes and raise your blood sugar! They eat meat, more meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products as staples. This guarantees cancer, diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and a very long list of other illnesses.
According to the ketogenic advocates all carbohydrates are exactly the same. Brown rice or white sugar. Oatmeal or honey. Whole wheat or chocolate candy. Atkins fell over dead prematurely years ago from chronic heart disease. He was obese, sickly, and suffering from numerous health problems from following the same deadly program. A hideous diet like this will raise your cholesterol, uric acid, CRP, and homocysteine thru the roof! Atkins was Mercola’s mentor. Mercola is sickly, and has various health issues he won’t talk about. He will die early just like Atkins did. Your author would pay $5,000 cash money to give him a public blood test for cholesterol, uric acid, CRP, and homocysteine. He is a walking health time bomb ready to implode.
Anyone who knows anything about nutrition realizes that fat contains about twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates. FAT makes you fat! It isn't food per se that makes you fat- it’s FAT that makes you fat. Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Helen Keller can see that much. Read any of the books by Susan Powter, Gary Null, Robert (or Nathan) Pritikin, Terry Shintani, Michio Kushi, or Dean Ornish on low-fat eating. You can eat all you want, and be slim and healthy all your life, if you eat a low-fat diet, and avoid meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Animal fat makes you fat. Whole grains make you slim and healthy.
A whole grain, low-fat diet is the basis of your good health and long life. People who eat a balanced whole grain based diet get a small fraction of the cancer, diabetes, heart/artery disease,and other such epidemic conditions. What more proof do you need? A whole grain based diet keeps you slim, while maintaining low insulin and blood sugar levels. The Okinawans are the healthiest and longest lived people on the planet. Whole grains are their staple. The Okinawans eat more soy foods than anyone- which comes to 12% of their diet. They eat a very low-fat diet and almost no animal foods. Mercola is always warning about the “dangers” of soy foods, and how deadly they are. This is prima facie absurd. The healthiest people on earth prove soy is good food. Billions of Asians eat soy foods as a daily staple, and their health is far better than ours overall. Americans only eat 1% whole grains and almost zero soy foods.
The garbage he sells is pitiful. We’ll only cover a few of the worthless supplements he sells. $4 worth of resveratrol in “Purple Defense’” for $45? How about UNREFRIGERATED krill oil for $62.97. You must refrigerated fish, krill, and flax oil. Worthless ubiquinol $21.97 for 30. Our REAL CoQ10 is only $10 a month. Read the CoQ10 Frauds article. Useless chorella. Ridiculous “nanotechnology” vitamin D spray for $42.97. His useless Prostate Support only has saw palm-etto and pumpkin seed oil. Real Beta Prostate® has 600 mg of actual mixed sterols, for a fraction of the price. (We sold this years ago.) His melatonin spray refuses to give any information about how much melatonin is in it. You don’t “spray” melatonin for God’s sake! His vitamin B-12 spray is $16.97 for a mere 30 day supply. We put methyl cobalamin (oral B-12) in our All your Minerals and Vitamins. You get 13 vitamins and 20 minerals for $6.00 a month. He sells garbage like acai berry. His coconut oil at $17.45 a pint is just too much to comprehend. Now he has $73 acidophilus- unrefrigerated of course.Why continue?
Our books and articles have cited, published, international, clinical studies that prove you lower your cholesterol, CRP, homocysteine, insulin, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels with a low-fat, whole foods diet based on whole grains, beans, and vegetables. We’ve also cited studies that prove saturated animal fat is a major cause of cancer, heart disease, obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes. Most all diabetics are overweight from eating too much meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Please read my books The Natural Diabetes Cure and Lower Blood Pressure Without Drugs. The journal Nutrition and Cancer (v 38, 2000) proves this. Doctors at the U of CA fed women an unlimited whole grain, low-fat diet, and their insulin levels fell an amazing 63% in only THREE WEEKS!!!! Notice that is 63%. Their blood sugar levels also fell dramatically in only three weeks. They ate all they wanted 24 hours a day and lost weight. There are lots of such published studies, yet quacks like Mercola tell you eating whole grains raises your in-sulin and blood sugar levels, and makes you fat.
Southern Chinese use rice as a staple, and Northern Chinese use wheat as a staple. They have SEVENTEEN TIMES LESS HEART AND ARTERY DISEASE than we do. CHD is the biggest killer of all by far, and they have seventeen times less than us. Migration studies prove this is due to their diet and lifestyle. 98% of the wheat eaten in the U.S. is nutritionless refined white flour. Only 1% of the U.S. diet is whole grains, and that is mostly all oatmeal and whole wheat bread.
Eating more meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products is a guaranteed way to raise your cholesterol and blood pressure, so you’ll fall over of a heart attack or stroke, get more cancer, succumb to diabetes, feel sickly, and die early. The American public hogs down an amazing 42% fat calories- which is five times what they need. They hog down five times the fat they need- 500%! Almost half their calorie intake is from fat! Most all of these are saturated artery-clogging animal fats. These only come from meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Americans have the highest cancer, heart/artery disease, and diabetes rates in the world. We eat twice the calories we need, and twice the protein we need. We are overfed and undernourished.
Ironically, Mercola has written two good books- The Great Bird Flu Hoax and Sweet Deception. The first exposes the bird flu fraud, and the second exposes sucralose for the poison it is. He hates GMO foods. We have been saying these things for years now. He is also a good libertarian, and supports Ron Paul and other libertarian issues. He warns about simple sugars, synthetic sweeteners, vaccines, refined grains, and hydrogenated oils.
Go to www.quackwatch.com to learn more about him. He has been cited by the FDA so many times for false claims they lost count years ago. He swears he is dedicated to the betterment of humanity, and not motivated by material things. However, he lives in a 5,083 square foot, $2 million, luxurious mansion with a swimming pool. He is completely clueless about supplements. Mercola is just as clueless about hormones, even though he is a medical doctor. He advises you to stick DHEA cream up your butt to raise your testosterone. Yes, seriously this is on his website. He has no idea what pregnenolone is. Or estriol. It's people like him who give natural health a bad name. People who take his advice only get sicker and then say, "Natural health doesn't work". Why is Mercola so popular? Because he tells people what they want to hear, rather than what they need to hear. The secret to success is to tell people what they want to hear. Robert Atkins was the most popular author of diet books in history- until he fell over dead at 72 from following his own asinine advice. Mercola is a sickly person, and looks terrible at 59. Mercola will soon fall over dead prematurely from doing the same thing. Then the media will say, “natural health doesn’t work”. Remember you heard that here first folks.
Here is his $2 million, 5,028 sq. ft. luxurious mansion in Schaumberb, IL. He lives like royalty on the millions of dollars he rakes in every year. He does not have a chartible trust with all his millions. We love to give away money with our Young Again Foundation and live simply. The royal road to success is to tell the sheeple what they want to hear.
