Really, on what basis? So all those people eating green or fruit smoothies are misguided?

I don't think there's one right way to eat for everyone, but in general I think a variety of nutritious foods in sensible portions with occasional treats is common sense.

 

Isn't this what Blaylock is recommending? It is one of the least faddy cancer diets I have come across.

Okay, you admit bias. I am still waiting for the "science" which demonstrates eating lots of slightly cooked veggies is bad for you?

I'm not the one asserting that blenderizing is better or bone broth is miraculous. I only said there was no science to support it. I'm not going to be able to find a research study that says there's no research to support whatever nonsense blaylock is selling this week. If you think that means you got me or whatever than so be it.

I'm sure green smoothies are very healthy. If they get people to eat more vegetables that's awesome. However, I don't know that they're better for you than a salad or some regular cooked collards or kale.

Here's a pretty good rundown of the diet. On the surface it sounds fine, but he makes lots of claims I don't think are supported by science. As far as I know excitotoxin is a term he invented. I have no idea what a Christopher egg is.

Christopher eggs are high in Omega-3.

Rachel, this is not about me "getting" you. But I do get the impression you type before you think sometimes. If you had taken the time to read about the Blaylock diet, you would have seen it is really quite reasonable. Green smoothies are a way to consume a large quantity of green veggies; I actually think they are too high in fiber and not easily digested. I believe raw green veggie juices to be better for vitamin and mineral absorption.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excitotoxicity

 

Quote:

Excitotoxicity is the pathological process by which nerve cells are damaged and killed by excessive stimulation by neurotransmitters such as glutamate and similar substances. This occurs when receptors for the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate (glutamate receptors) such as the NMDA receptor and AMPA receptor are overactivated. Excitotoxins like NMDA and kainic acid which bind to these receptors, as well as pathologically high levels of glutamate, can cause excitotoxicity by allowing high levels of calcium ions[2](Ca2+) to enter the cell. Ca2+ influx into cells activates a number of enzymes, including phospholipases,endonucleases, and proteases such as calpain. These enzymes go on to damage cell structures such as components of the cytoskeletonmembrane, and DNA.

 

Christopher eggs are a brand of egg high in Omega 3s. Personally, I would just buy local farm-sourced pastured, soy-free eggs.

Then I have no idea why we are still talking about it. You think it's reasonable. I think it's silly. Oh well.

Keep off the personal stuff.  Take it to PM, or just don't go there.
