Cog Diss

I'm getting a certification in mental health integrative medicine that focuses a lot on nutrition. Unfortunately, the data it's based on is really out of date and doesn't discourage meat eating for all the reasons we now know it should be discouraged.

I'm struggling with that. I'll eventually need to pass a test on the material and so I'll have to answer some questions with answers I know are just plain wrong, just to pass the test. That makes me feel yucky.

Things Continue to be Excellent

My brain power continues to be maximized on the whole food, plant based diet I have been following for almost 3.5 years now. My weight is down to a nearly all time low (in my adult memory). I feel fantastic. I won't have empirical data to support my subjective experience until after my annual physical, likely in July. But based on my strength during exercise, I expect the blood work will support my lived experience.

Many people doubt or distrust the whole food, plant based vegan diet for health promotion. There are two reasons for this. The first is mass confusion about nutrition in the mainstream media. Even though no scientific study as ever concluded that eating LESS fruits and vegetables is good for your health, there is still a cognitive dissonance about animal based foods and whether they are unhealthy. Animal foods are unhealthy (SOURCE), but the mainstream media, with its "fair and balanced" doctrine, perpetrates a belief that the science is still ambiguous about the harm animal foods do to the human body.

At baseline, the ideal diet for optimal health is the whole food, plant based diet (SOURCE). The introduction of any animal based foods - at all - increases the risk for chronic diseases. That's not to say people eating a whole food, plant based diet won't ever get a chronic disease. But it is to say that the risk is the lowest it can possibly be if you eat a whole food, plant based diet (SOURCE).

Conspiracy Theory

Conspiracy theories seem to be all the rage right now. So, I'll go ahead and add mine to the mix.

Nearly half of Americans are clinically and collctively psychotic and the American industrial food system is to blame.

That's it.
