DETOURING DISEASES
Our top killers; cancer and heart disease, along with escalating rates of obesity, diabetes, digestive and auto-immune disorders,
chronic inflammation and more are related to our diet and lifestyle. Nutritional wisdom is imperative in avoiding/overcoming
debilitating heath issues and deadly diseases. Common conventional approaches to treat these diseases have long been
ineffective in reducing the risks, lowering the continuing diagnosis nor decreasing the numbers of deaths that result. Disease
prevention, treatment and even reversal is proven and achieved with medical experts such as Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr Joel
Furhman, Dr Colin Campbell, Dr Neal Barnard, Dr McDougall and Dr Mark Hyman. Discover the amazing route to detouring
diseases with doctor’s intent on preventing and reversing diseases with long standing peer reviewed medically proven results.
The World Health Organization reports that cardiovascular diseases are the top causes of deaths
internationally. “At least 80% of premature deaths from cardiovascular heart diseases and strokes could be
prevented through a healthy diet, regular physical activity and avoiding use of tobacco.”

You can virtually eliminate your risk of heart disease, by enjoying a Nutrient
Rich diet and an active lifestyle.
Blood cholesterol is a predictor not only of heart disease risk, also of cancer.
Type I diabetes, a devastating disease that strikes young children, is strongly
linked to cow’s milk consumption
Bone health is strongly associated with the ratio of vegetable to animal
protein intake
Eye diseases commonly associated with old age, including cataracts and
macular degeneration, have been convincingly linked to diet.
Bone health is strongly associated with the ratio of vegetable to animal
protein intake.
! Several studies have shown that type 2 diabetes can be reversed in patients
simply by changing their diet to a high-fiber, unrefined, largely plant-based diet.
! So many studies have so consistently shown that dairy intake is linked to
prostate cancer that Harvard researchers have said that a high dairy intake is one of
the most consistent dietary predictors for prostate cancer in the published literature.
THE CHINA STUDY - Dr T Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II
By adopting a nutrient rich diet and an active lifestyle, the risks for several diseases are reduced
at the same time. The China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project discovered that certain
diseases cluster together in the same geographic regions, populations, and individuals.
"

"
"
This evidence supports the hypothesis that diseases that cluster together may have a
common cause.
The same conditions that foster diabetes also foster coronary heart disease.
In rural China, many of the Diseases of Affluence were associated with higher blood
cholesterol levels, which again were strongly associated with dietary patterns.
Extensive research from other studies and other settings support the finding that one
type of diet and lifestyle (a nutrient-poor diet and sedentary lifestyle) is associated with
many of our leading killers in the same way.

“The comprehensiveness of the China Study is second to none. The Cornell, Oxford, and
China researchers examined and compared 367 variables, meaning that the complex network
of food, health, and environment was studied in a most comprehensive way.” Dr Joel Furhman
Some TOP FINDINGS from The China Study:
Blood cholesterol is a predictor not only of heart disease risk, but also of cancer.
" Diet is strongly linked to blood cholesterol levels.
" The best foods for disease prevention: unrefined, plant-based foods.
Over four decades ago, the famous Framingham Heart Study conclusively found that high
blood cholesterol levels were a predictor of heart disease.
The China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project researchers found that blood cholesterol,
was also linked to various cancers. This suggests that blood cholesterol is not just a predictor of
heart disease, but cancer as well.
This association was observed for relatively low total cholesterol levels (90-170 mg/dL), which
were much lower than generally found in Western populations.
Researchers found dietary choices strongly associated with blood cholesterol levels.
"
"
As intakes of plant foods increased, blood cholesterol levels went down,
As intakes of animal foods increased, blood cholesterol levels went up.
You can virtually eliminate your risk of heart disease, by enjoying a Nutrient Rich diet and
an active lifestyle. In some populations in China, heart disease is practically nonexistent. This is
reflected in the unusually low blood cholesterol levels in rural China, which were linked in a
highly significant way with dietary patterns. Intake of even small amounts of animal-based foods was linked
to higher blood cholesterol levels, and intake of plant-based foods was linked to lower blood cholesterol levels.
Range of Blood Cholesterol Levels in Rural China and the United States
Type I diabetes, a devastating disease that strikes young children, is strongly linked to cow’s
milk consumption and premature weaning. For infants, the best food is human breast milk.
Eye diseases commonly associated with old age, including cataracts and macular
degeneration, have been convincingly linked to diet. Specifically, the antioxidants found in fruits and
vegetables protect against these diseases. The best foods for your eyes: dark, green, leafy vegetables like spinach.
Bone health is strongly associated with the ratio of vegetable to animal protein intake.
Populations that consume mostly plant- foods and lead more physically active lifestyles have
much lower rates of hip fracture than we do in America.

Several studies have shown that type 2 diabetes, an increasingly urgent epidemic in
America, can be reversed in patients simply by changing their diet to a high-fiber, unrefined,
largely plant-based diet; in other words, a nutrient-rich diet.
Many studies have so consistently shown that dairy intake is linked to prostate cancer
that Harvard researchers have said that a high dairy intake is one of the most consistent
dietary predictors for prostate cancer in the published literature.
Dr. Dean Ornish, founder, president and director of the Preventive Medicine Research institute
and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., a highly acclaimed surgeon from the Cleveland Clinic, the
number one ranked heart disease treatment institution in the country, have conducted
intervention studies on Americans with advanced heart disease and actually documented
significant disease reversal by using dietary change as a primary treatment.
The diet they used was a whole, predominantly whole plant foods diet.

Five tips following the Healthy Eating Pyramid
1. Start with exercise. A healthy diet is built on a base of regular exercise, which keeps calories in
balance and weight in check. Read five quick tips for staying active and getting to your healthy weight,
and a dozen ideas for fitting exercise into your life.
2. Focus on food, not grams. The Healthy Eating Pyramid doesn’t worry about specific servings or
grams of food, so neither should you. It’s a simple, general guide to how you should eat when you eat.
3. Go with plants. Eating a plant-based diet is healthiest. Choose plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole
grains, and healthy fats, like olive and canola oil. Check out these delicious healthy recipes that bring the
Healthy Eating Pyramid into your kitchen.
4. Cut way back on American staples. Red meat and processed meat, refined grains, potatoes, sugary
drinks, and salty snacks are part of American culture, and are really unhealthy. Go for a plant-based diet
rich in non-starchy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. If you eat meat, fish and poultry are better
choices.
5. Take a multivitamin, and maybe have a drink. Taking a multivitamin can be a good nutrition
insurance policy. Moderate drinking for many people can have real health benefits, but it's not for
everyone. Those who don’t drink shouldn’t feel that they need to start. Read about balancing alcohol's
risks and benefits.
TOP FIVE FOODS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT www.pcrm.org
1. Beans and lentils add heartiness to soups, stews, chili, and other recipes. They’re loaded
with cancer-fighting fiber and healthy plant proteins.
2. Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cauliflower, collard greens and
Brussels sprouts contain potent cancer-fighting compounds and have been shown to help
rid the body of excess hormones.
3. Berries such as blueberries and blackberries are full of powerful antioxidants that help
stop free radical damage which can otherwise lead to cancer.
4. Carrots and other orange-colored fruits and vegetables such as sweet potatoes, mango,
cantaloupe, pumpkin, and squash are incredible sources of beta-carotene, which is crucial
for cancer prevention and survival. Just 1 large carrot a day helps you meet your daily
requirement!
5. Whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, oats, and millet are rich sources of fiber and B
vitamins, essential for health. Plus, they’re loaded with complex carbohydrates to keep you
full and help you avoid unhealthy snacking.

ANDREW WEIL’S PHYTONUTRIENTS LIST:
To get maximum natural protection against age-related diseases (including cardiovascular
disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative disease) as well as against environmental toxicity, eat
a variety of fruits, vegetables and mushrooms.
• Choose fruits and vegetables from all parts of the color spectrum, especially berries,
tomatoes, orange and yellow fruits, and dark leafy greens.
• Choose organic produce whenever possible. Learn which conventionally grown crops
are most likely to carry pesticide residues and avoid them.
• Eat cruciferous (cabbage-family) vegetables regularly.
• Include soy foods in your diet.
• Drink tea instead of coffee, especially good quality white, green or oolong tea.
• If you drink alcohol, use red wine preferentially.
• Enjoy plain dark chocolate in moderation (with a minimum cocoa content of 70 percent).
CHOOSING BETTER PROTEINS:
1. Mix it up. Well planned plant based diets provide enough protein for healthy people. Eating a variety of
foods will ensure that you get all of the amino acids you need.
2. Go low on saturated fat. Beans, fish and poultry provide plenty of protein, without much saturated fat.
Steer clear of fatty meats and use whole-milk dairy products sparingly. For more information on saturated
fat, read "Fats and Cholesterol: Out with the Bad, In with the Good."
3. Limit red meat—and avoid processed meat. Research suggests that people who eat more than 18
ounces a week of red meat have a higher risk of colon cancer. Make red meat—beef, pork, lamb—only
an occasional part of your diet, if you eat it at all. Skip the processed stuff—bacon, hot dogs, and deli
meats—it’s also been linked to higher cancer risk.
4. Eat soy in moderation. Tofu and other soy foods (non-GMO/organic) are an excellent red meat
alternative. In some cultures, tofu and soy foods are a protein staple, and we don’t suggest any change.
But if you haven't grown up eating lots of soy, there's no reason to go overboard: Two to 4 servings a
week is a good target; eating more than that likely won't offer any health benefits and we can’t be sure
that there is no harm. And stay away from supplements that contain concentrated soy protein or extracts,
such as isoflavones, as we just don't know the long term effects. Read more about soy and health.
5. Balance carbs and protein. Cutting back on highly processed carbohydrates and increasing protein
improves levels of blood triglycerides and HDL, and so may reduce your chances of having a heart
attack, stroke, or other form of cardiovascular disease. It may also make you feel full longer, and stave off
hunger. pangs. For tips on how to choose high quality carbs, check out the Carbohydrates section of The Nutrition Source.
