(Video) Great Talk at the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii - "Are Humans Designed To Eat Meat?"

Uploaded on Jun 3, 2011 on You Tube
A presentation by Milton Mills, M.D.

The major causes of death in Western countries are cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Abundant medical research linking these diseases to dietary and lifestyle factors, guidelines advanced by the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, and the Surgeon General, among others, counsel Americans to sharply reduce animal foods consumed and replace them with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In effect, they are recommending a more plant-based diet, which begs the question: Are humans designed to eat meat?

Milton Mills, M.D. has an extensive background in nutrition research, focusing on the role nutrition plays in the development of chronic diseases. He is a graduate of the Stanford University School of Medicine and is a practicing physician in the Washington, D.C. area. He also serves as the Associate Director of Preventive Medicine for the health policy group Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. He has lectured extensively throughout North America and is a Nutrition Health Education Video Spokesperson for the Discovery Health Channel.

Day 1 of a Month Juicing Cleanse

Monday, Feb. 3rd, 2014
We both woke up yesterday morning looking forward to starting this juice cleanse.

 I find the more juice cleanses the easier it can be. 

 Here's the base of our juices (I wrote this to a friend in an email, so that's why it's written this way): Here’s our breakfast & lunch ORGANIC green juice (ideally you should yield a 32 oz juice)

One (or half if too tart for you) lemon 1 slice off an organic ginger (do as much as you would like)
 Cucumbers (I’ve been getting the English cucumbers from Trader Joe’s)
 1 package per serving Celery (one bunch per serving) (or if you get them from Trader Joe’s one package of the 2 bunches for the juice) 
Romaine lettuce (I usually get the 3 head package from Trader Joe’s and use 1 head per juice)
 My add-on to this are: organic stevia to taste and organic pumpkin spice. If you want to add an apple until your taste buds change, you can.

 For our dinner savory ORGANIC juice:
 One (or half if too tart for you) lemon 2 large tomatoes or 3 roma tomatoes
 Zucchini (1/2 package from Trader Joe’s per serving)
 Red bell pepper 1/2 large or 1 small 
Romaine (1 head from Trader Joe’s bag) Arugula or spinach (for flavor) 1 or 2 handfuls 
Celery (1 bunch from Whole Foods or 1 package from Trader Joe’s) 
My add-on to this: Real Salt or Himalayan salt to taste, Garlic powder or granules and cayenne to taste and 1 Tbsp hemp oil or Udo’s 3-6-9 oil.

 Make with LOVE! Enjoy!

 My “Master Cleanse” lemonade 3 organic lemons squeezed in a half gallon of purified water, sprinkle in organic cayenne to taste, organic stevia to taste, and 12 drops Cellfood. 

 My in between tea – Organic Yerba Mate instant tea by Ancient Wisdom with Sweetleaf Stevia drops in Vanilla flavor and English Toffee flavor to taste.

 I also have a glass of Health Force Elixir of the Lake blue-green algae…ton’s of nutrition and great for cleansing and an late afternoon pick me up. 

 I've also been drinking our Skinny Bliss tea.

 And if you’re not overloaded with liquids, plenty of purified water to flush out toxins.
