"I feel the same about the craze to eat fish, or at least consume the particular omega-3 fatty acids found in finfish or shellfish. There is a suggestion that modest consumption of fish will reduce the relative risk of coronary death by about 30 percent, but it will decrease the absolute risk of death before your time very little and all-cause mortality not at all (see chapter 1). It will not protect you from any manifestation of coronary artery disease other than death. There is no hint of a benefit in terms of cancer. So, there's a whiff of white smoke."

"Bacteria "eat" inorganic chemicals, sunlight, other bacteria, and every creature that walks, swims, flies, or crawls. But only during the most recent, tiniest fraction of their history have bacterial genes combined in a way that regards animals as food. At the most basic level, all living creatures on earth eat the same food: the compound adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which stores energy in the chemical bond that is the diffetence between adenosine diphosphate—ADP—and ATP."
- William Rosen, Justinian's Flea: The First Great Plague and the End of the Roman Empire (Get the book.)

"While we may always have a genetic predisposition to high blood pressure or high cholesterol, we can exercise, eat healthfully, not smoke, take necessary medications, and implement the nine practices in the Brilliant Health model. Ascending the spiral staircase is the outcome of granting yourself the power to create the best possible conditions to support your own unique genetic design. TWO CHEFS: TOM AND TINA Tom and Tina represent two approaches regarding their respective genetically related health issues. Tina's story typifies the unaccountable approach."

"For the next eight weeks they were randomized to continue the control diet, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, or eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables but reduced in saturated and total fats. Sodium intake and body weight were maintained at constant levels. The experimental diets were associated with a lowering of blood pressure, particularly in the subjects whose blood pressures were in the upper tertile at inception of the cohort."

"You won't need to buy anything, take anything, or eat anything different. What you'll need is already within you: the thoughts and behaviors that create positive emotions. This book will help you experience the extraordinary physical power of positive emotions and use them to achieve Brilliant Health. Brilliant Health is a sensation. It's a deep feeling of vitality, well-being, and the sense that you've achieved the highest possible quality of life. When you live in Brilliant Health, you have a healthier body down to the cellular level. You have better brain function."
- Rick Foster, Greg Hicks, M.D., Jen Seda, Choosing Brilliant Health: 9 Choices That Redefine What It Takes to Create Lifelong Vitality and Well-Being (Get the book.)

"It's true, most of us know someone who can eat anything and not gain a pound. It may not seem fair, but blame and envy don't help us choose a smaller portion of a healthy meal. They don't help us feel joy about our amazing bodies or motivate us to get off the couch and maximize our own personal biochemical makeup. Tina had no part in creating her genetics, but she could cook up a beneficial environment in which her genes operate. The Fates have also been unkind to Tom's family. His male lineage has a genetic predisposition to early cardiac disease."

"At the most basic level, all living creatures on earth eat the same food: the compound adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which stores energy in the chemical bond that is the diffetence between adenosine diphosphate—ADP—and ATP. Like a battery charged by a flywheel, every time a molecule of ADP is converted to a molecule of ATP, it "costs" eight kcal, but the enetgy doesn't disappear. It remains available for release as energy when the cycle is teversed."
- William Rosen, Justinian's Flea: The First Great Plague and the End of the Roman Empire (Get the book.)

"Frankish king, Guntram, visited a nearby village and, in Gregory's telling, anyway, prevented the disease from entering by advising the villagets to eat only barley bread, and to drink only pure water. The power of inter-cessionary prayer is a frequent feature of Gregory's chronicle. Two years later, the plague decimated Viviers and Avignon, "raged through other parts of Gaul, but thanks to the prayers of Saint Gall"—who led his parishioners on a Lenten march more than fifty miles long?it claimed no victims in Clermont-Ferrand."

"And then to make matters still more perplexing: To achieve this possible benefit, corn oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. This little masterpiece of pseudoscientific bureaucratese was extracted from the FDA by the manufacturer of Mazola corn oil. It would appear that "qualified" is an official FDA euphemism for "all but meaningless."Though someone might have let the consumer in on this game: The FDA's own research indicates that consumers have no idea what to make of qualified health claims (how would they?"

"There are dozens of days when it's expected that kids will eat things that are packed with sugar. In my office checkups, however, I like to remind kids that while sometimes there will be sugar, most of the time there are strawberries, grapes, apples, pears, and peaches to choose from. They listen. They get it. I like children to have choices, but there are certain situations in which their judgment cannot prevail. We never ask a three- or a four-year-old if he or she thinks that holding hands while crossing a street is a good idea. We simply hold the child's hand."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"Countless patients have proved to me that once you can recover your power in those other areas, recovering your power over the 141 uncontrollable urge to eat becomes almost effortless. This is what I've been talking to you about for the whole book so far. How to remedy the problem probably feels like the farthest thing from a magical solution to weight loss that you could ever imagine. But there's more at stake here than your weight, as important as your weight is."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"If you don't eat fruit now or have only juice at breakfast, add a serving to your meals or have it as a snack. ?Gradually increase your use of fat-free and low-fat milk and milk products to three servings a day. For example, drink milk with lunch or dinner, instead of soda, sugar-sweetened tea, or alcohol. Choose fat-free (skim) or low-fat (1 percent) milk and milk products to reduce your intake of saturated fat, total fat, cholesterol, and calories and increase your calcium. ?Read Nutrition Facts label on margarines and salad dressings to choose those lowest in saturated fat."
- Ann M. Coulston and Carol J. Boushey, Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease (Get the book.)

"I feel compelled to eat when I feel stressed or emotional. I eat to make my inner child feel good and give the adult limited moments of joy when I feel depressed. I don't believe I can ever achieve and stick to my goal weight, convinced I will bounce back up again. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. I must have something sweet in the evening after dinner/before bed. Does this sound familiar to you? Perhaps weight isn't one of your core issues. What is? You may be very surprised about what you do believe when you put a microscope to it."
- Jackie Lapin, The Art of Conscious Creation: How You Can Transform the World (Get the book.)

"Your self-doubts make you feel powerless, and you eat, seeking refuge in the food trance for a few moments. This makes you feel guilty. The whole process confirms your self-doubts. Let's see what this looks like in practice. Powerless Choice Example When Alexandra comes home from work, her husband asks, "What are you wearing?" (what happened in the external reality of today). She misinterprets his statement to believe that he's criticizing her outfit. He never likes what she wears; he's not attracted to her. Finally it turns into a catastrophe prediction: He doesn't really love her."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Did you eat when you were emotionally upset or experiencing feelings of "emptiness"? 7. Did you stuff in the food very quickly? Let's see how you did. 1. Emotional hunger comes on suddenly, while physical hunger develops slowly. Physical hunger begins with a tummy rumble, then it becomes a stronger grumble, and finally it evolves into hunger pangs, but it's a slow process, very different from emotional hunger, which has a sudden, dramatic onset. 2. Unlike physical hunger, emotional hunger demands food immediately, and it wants immediate satisfaction."

- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Feel free to eat lots of fruit, but get rid of cookies, cakes, candy, sugary cereals, and artificially flavored drinks. Processed sugar has no nutritive value. It's been milled and distilled over and over until it is an empty shell of addictive, unhealthy flavor. Why are the natural sugars found in fruit okay? Because this wonderful sweetness is absorbed in a matrix—a framework, that is—of fiber and water. Fruit is 90 percent water by weight. This and the fiber allow for slow, gradual absorption and none of the wild blood-sugar bounces that are causing your child to misbehave all this time."

"I started to eat to get fat, so no one would look at me like that again." To people like this patient, Lexy, and Andrea, extra layers of fat feel like protection from an unsafe environment or world. Not every person who uses fat to avoid being looked at or approached by sexually aggressive people has had a real event to hang their discomfort on, but that doesn't make any difference. The discomfort can come from within and be just as strong, and often hardly conscious. How Fat Becomes a Hiding Place My weight is, I believe, one of the primary spiritual issues in my life ..."

"Yes, the rise to prominence of these chronic diseases is partly due to the fact that we're not dying earlier in life of infectious diseases, but only partly: Even after adjusting for age, many of the so-called diseases of civilization were far less common a century ago—and they remain rare in places where people don't eat the way we do. I'm speaking, of course, of the elephant in the room whenever we discuss diet and health: "the Western diet."
- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"Make Sprouts Children will be more excited to eat foods that they grow themselves. One simple activity is making sprouts. Start by putting a half cup of lentils (or mung beans, alfalfa seeds, or sunflower seeds) in a jar with a wide neck, then covering with purified water. Cut a piece of cheesecloth to fit generously over the jar's neck and secure it with a rubber band. Soak the beans or seeds for one hour, then pour out the water through the cheesecloth. Shake the jar gently to distribute the seeds as evenly as possible, and let the jar sit on its side in a shady place."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"We would probably have to sacrifice where we want to live, what we want to eat, and what we do for work and play to achieve our maximum life potential. Of course, not only do we choose not to follow that path, it would be impossible even if we tried. But that doesn't mean we can't improve, enrich, and extend our health and our energy now without making drastic changes in lifestyle."
- Tom Bohager, Everything You Need to Know About Enzymes to Treat Everything from Digestive Problems and Allergies to Migraines and Arthritis (Get the book.)

"If a child has diabetes, he or she can't eat certain foods at a birthday party. You're not depriving that child, and it's not excessive for a parent to say, "Johnny has diabetes, so he's going to skip the cake." But what if Johnny has ADD/ADHD or something that looks like it? Then it's likely that everyone's reaction is less empathetic. You'll probably hear something along the lines of "Aw, come on. Just let the kid have some cake." What most people don't understand is that the cake and the other sugar-filled foods take the fun out of the birthday party for Johnny."

"In order for these proteases to break down proteins, at least one of the following must be met: The protein must be dead, as in the case when we eat protein; the protein must be damaged; the protein must be tagged for removal by the immune system. If these plant-based proteins did indeed break down all proteins, then all red blood cells, white blood cells, muscle tissues, stomach lining, arteries, other enzymes, and practically every other tissue of the body would be in danger. Another point to consider is the content of the probiotics themselves."

"This is a strategy recommended for individuals who do not eat fish or those who need high doses of marine-derived omega-3 fatty acids. The best guidance is to follow FDA guidelines as well as state and local advisories for safe fish consumption. In conclusion, long-chain n-3 fatty acids have been shown to have significant cardioprotective benefits in observational studies and secondary prevention trials. This research supports current dietary recommendations for two fish meals per week, preferably fatty fish."

"They aren't paid to coordinate the care of diabetics or heart failure patients, to hire nurses to track a patient's weight or make sure his lungs aren't filling up with fluid, or a nutritionist to help a diabetic understand what she can and cannot eat. In order for programs like Pursuing Perfection to succeed, hospitals must work with all local doctors, not just those who are willing to lose money in order to help their patients. The way to do that is to pay them as if they were a single, integrated group, hospitals and doctors working together. But that's not how we do it."
- Shannon Brownlee, Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer (Get the book.)

"It joins seafood and the constituent omega-3 fatty acids as the smart thing to eat. The supporting literature is as voluminous as it is low in quality. For an analysis of the risk/benefit ratio of fish intake, I'd suggest the review by Mozaffarian and Rimm (2006). My assertion that neither fish nor omega-3 fatty acid itself will spare you cancer is supported by another systematic review of the literature (MacLean et al. 2006). Brouwer et al."
- Nortin M. Hadler MD, Worried Sick: A Prescription for Health in an Overtreated America (Get the book.)

"It also calls for preventive measures, providing access to nutritionists and nurses to help patients learn to eat better and exercise more in order to avoid getting the conditions in the first place. The doctors have implemented information technology to allow everyone involved in a patient's care to share medical records and support disease management. Pursuing Perfection has already improved the health of many patients. Rebecca Bryson suffers from both diabetes and congestive heart failure."

"I'd overspend on clothes, drink too much, and eat everything in sight. When I felt sorry for myself, I'd put all my attention on what was wrong with my life." In doing so, Margie was unwittingly pulling herself down the staircase of health. In the process, she unknowingly lowered her threshold for pain, and more pain led her to be more negative. "One day, after landing a big account at work, I felt so pleased with myself and grateful for the help of my colleagues. Suddenly, I noticed that the pain wasn't as bad. I put two and two together."

"The thinking goes that Asian societies are healthier because they eat large amounts of soy. But the truth is that Asian cultures consume soy foods in small amounts (about 2 teaspoons a day) as a condiment and not as a replacement for animal foods. According to Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, Ph.D., two experts on the subject, soy foods were traditionally fermented to neutralize toxins in soybeans, whereas most modern soy foods are not fermented. They are processed in a way that denatures the proteins and increases the levels of carcinogens in the soy."

"Because they can't pass food from the stomach to the small intestine, babies with pyloric stenosis vomit everything they eat. Surgery introduced in the early twentieth century had transformed pyloric stenosis from an almost invariably fatal condition into a curable disorder. But when Diana's surgeon, Jacob Handelsman, known as "Jake the Snake" for reasons that have been lost over time, cut open the Wennberg baby's tiny abdomen, he found her pyloric valve was normal; her vomiting was completely inexplicable. Handelsman refused to give up."
