Top 10 Destructive Nutrition Lies Ever Told   :o

Story at-a-glance

By Dr. Mercola

There is no shortage of health advice out there, and no shortage of bad advice to go along with it. Some misguided notions are harmless—but others are outright dangerous and can lead you down the road to chronic health problems and may even trim years off your life.

It is critically important to decipher fact from fiction. Many nutrition myths get repeated over and over until they are mistaken for truth, especially when perpetually spread by public health authorities.

But the good news is that slowly, the real truth finally appears to be reaching mainstream audiences, as evidenced by the eagerness of satirists to take a jab at the food industry, as in the clever Coca-Cola parody featured above.

In an article addressing destructive nutrition lies, Kris Gunnars of Authority Nutrition1 is among those admirably trying to bust the dangerous dietary myths that continue being spread by so many nutritionists. I agree with the majority of his points, but have added a few others that I believe to be important. Read on for my own top 10 list, which builds upon his.

Quote

Lie #1: Breakfast Is the Healthiest Meal of the Day, and You Should Eat Many Small Meals a Day
Lie #2: Saturated Fat Causes Heart Disease
Lie #3: High Omega-6 Seed and Vegetable Oils Are Good for You
Lie #4: Artificial Sweeteners Are Safe Sugar Replacements for Diabetics, and Help Promote Weight Loss
Lie #5: Soy Is a Health Food
Lie #6: Whole Grains Are Good for Everyone
Lie #7: Genetically Engineered Foods Are Safe and Comparable to Conventional Foods
Lie #8: Eggs Are Bad for Your Heart
Lie #9: Low-Fat Foods Prevent Obesity and Heart Disease
Lie #10: Carbs Should Be Your Biggest Source of Calories

Now for the #1 Truth... 

The more you can eat like your ancestors, the better—fresh whole foods, locally and sustainably raised, and foods that are minimally processed or not processed at all.

These are the types of foods that your genes and biochemistry are adapted to and will provide you with the ability to reverse and prevent most diseases.

You will find these at your local farmer's market, food co-op, or in your own backyard garden. And you will be amazed at the positive changes you'll see in your health when you "clean up" your diet!

Be wary of nutritional advice from mainstream "experts" as it may not be based on science—or based on bad information that is several decades outdated.

Truthful, accurate information is your number one weapon in taking control of your health.
