3 Foods More Deadly Than Red Meat

poisonous foods, foods that are deadly, foods to avoid in healthy diet, healthy food substitutes

Last night was my red meat night. I made a delicious roast with red wine, bay leaves, and seasonings… then topped it with a huge heap of organic carrots, onions, and celery.

Honestly, it was mostly vegetables, but that’s a good way to keep my microbiome healthy and working at full tilt.

So yes, I tell my patients it is okay for them to have some red meat – provided it’s from a clean source and only accounts for about one meal a week. In fact, meat in general should only be about 13% of your entire diet.

Many people are surprised I allow this because they are so scared of eating too much saturated fat. But really, there are other so-called “healthy” foods that will do more damage to your health than a little saturated fat ever would. And they’re foods that you may be eating every day!

So, let me walk you through three of the worst offenders…

Deadly Food #1: Vegetable Oils and Margarines

For example, when everyone turned away from lard and animal fat for cooking, they switched to vegetable oils and margarines as a healthy alternative. Well, this ranks high as one of the most disastrous turn of events in the history of food.

MD Exposes the Hidden Danger to Your Eyes

When your eyesight starts to fail, it's a real problem. Suddenly you can't go to the grocery store... you can't get to the doctor if you have an emergency... you can't meet your friends for dinner…

Your "regular" doctor doesn't have time to keep up with the latest research. And the same goes for eye doctors. They go to school to learn how to fit you for glasses and contacts, but have no way of preventing the damage and loss of eyesight that threatens your freedom and independence.

Let me show you something that explains a LOT about how your eyes work.

In my FREE Special Report, I'll show you a HUGE, untapped resource for your eyes that safely and naturally restores clear, effortless eyesight.

First off, most cooking oils and margarines are high on omega-6 fatty acids. And while it’s true that our body’s need omega-6’s, we’re getting way too many of them these days – somewhere around 20 times more than is healthy.

When we get too many of them, they promote inflammation. And inflammation is an underlying cause of most chronic disease today.

Secondly, these oils are rancid. They go through processes that oxidize the fat in the oil and turn it rancid. You won’t know this, because they add compounds to the oil and steam-clean it to remove the nasty odors. Your body has no use for rancid food that contains all sorts of additives and preservatives.

Third, most cooking oils are made from genetically modified crops. The crops are designed to be “Roundup-ready.” This means the oils made from them are loaded with glyphosate, the main chemical found in this herbicide.

In addition to being a poison, glyphosate destroys healthy gut bacteria, damages DNA, messes with your hormones and disrupts your body’s ability to detoxify itself.

What you can do: My favorite vegetable oil is cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. It’s loaded with polyphenol antioxidants that can help protect against heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Other good choices of oil include cold-pressed, organic and unrefined coconut, sesame, palm fruit, avocado and sesame seed oil. If you can find “extra virgin” versions, it’s all the better.

Deadly Food #2: Not All Fish is Healthy Fish

Everybody knows that fish is good for them. There’s no question that the healthy omega-3 fatty acids found in fish protects your heart and brain, slashes inflammation and keeps you looking and feeling younger as you age.

But not all fish is created equal. In fact, farm-raised fish is decidedly not good for you. These fish contain all sorts of deadly chemicals, like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Farm-raised salmon is, by far, the worst. This type of salmon accounts for more than two-thirds of salmon across the globe, with farm raised tilapia just as unhealthy.

The health of these salmon is so bad that that about half of them die before they even get to harvest. And those that do survive contain enormous amounts of PCBs – up to 16 times more than wild-caught.

These chemicals build up in the fatty tissue of the fish. So whenever you eat a piece of fatty farm-raised salmon or other fish that sounds healthy, you’re actually getting a big dose of PCBs.

Are You Suffering From...

  • Love handles and a pot belly
  • Romance that isn't what it used to
  • Forgetfulness and inattention
  • Low (or no) strength and endurance
  • A sex drive that's shifted into neutral...or worse

If so...you may have Mature Male Burnout.  Click here to discover more about this unique condition and what you can do about it.

As these accumulate in your body, they can open you up to liver cancer, thyroid problems, a weakened immune response and hormone imbalances. There is also evidence they increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure.

What you can do: Enjoy fish from wild-caught sources. The healthiest are smaller species like Alaskan salmon, Pacific halibut, mackerel, sardines, herring, rainbow trout and flounder.

Try some delicious nova salmon with lactose-free cream cheese on a hollowed out organic poppy seed bagel. It’s my favorite. I also like scallops, shrimp, crab and lobster… again all wild caught.

Deadly Food #3: What to Eat Instead of Rice

If you’re a rice-lover, you probably gave up white rice a long time ago. Chances are you’re eating some of the more exotic forms… wild, basmati, long grain or another “healthier” version of rice.

Well, I hate to tell you this, but there is no healthy form of rice. All of them contain levels of inorganic arsenic dependent on the arsenic levels in the ground water where they’re grown.

In fact, when Consumer Reports analyzed a variety of rice products, they found inorganic arsenic in all 32 of the rice that was tested. All of them. The rice came from all over the world, including the U.S., India and Thailand.

Now, you probably already know that arsenic is a deadly poison. And the EPA classifies it as a “known human carcinogen”. This means eating too much rice is likely to increase your risk of developing some form of cancer.

Additionally, long-term exposure to arsenic is linked to abdominal issues, abnormal heart rhythm, kidney damage and a decrease in red and white blood cells.

What you can do: Quinoa is a great replacement for rice. It has negligible levels of inorganic arsenic, and it’s gluten-free to boot. Plus, it can be used in most rice recipes without altering the integrity of the dish.

Try mixing together red and white quinoa along with sautéed or roasted vegetables. It makes a delicious dish.
