1- question

1. How can nutrition optimize health, and treat and reverse chronic disease?

2. The film connects the dots between so many unsettling statistics. Which of the many statistics cited in the film startles you the most, and why?

3. What may keep persons who are aware of the film’s message from making changes to their diets?

4. According to the film, what are some of the benefits of a “Whole Foods Diets”?

5. Have you ever noticed a connection between the food you eat and the way you feel?

6. A ton of research and evidence has been gathered to support plant-based diets, but likewise, a ton of research and evidence has been

gathered to support low-carb, high-fat and protein diets (often called “paleo” or LCHF). How do you reconcile these conflicting



According to the film nutrition can be used to optimize health by providing the body with what it needs in terms of energy and nutrients without including some of the additives used in non-nutritious food that degrade health such as high cholesterol and MSG. Good nutrition can be used to optimize health by reversing chronic disease, according to the film meat products cause our bodies to activate cancer generating genes. Good nutrition will also reverse heart disease by restoring the epithelium to the coronary arteries.

2.Of all statistics cited in the film I found that the increase in liver cancer in upper class Filipino people was very startling. What startled me was that the upper class people were affected most because they ate meat products. I thought that humans had adapted for a long time to be able to consume meat and vegetables as a means to survive. But according to the film there are many instances in which meat is disastrous to the human body.

3. The longer a species has been doing something the harder it will be to steer them off a course that they are headed towards. All species on this earth are designed to survive in a harsh environment and like the film said using a shark analogy they usually think about two things which are food and sex. Making a change to someone’s diet is a very difficult feat because their own body is telling them not to change their diet because it is getting the most satisfaction out of the current diet.

4. By cutting out meat products and refined sugars the human body becomes more energized and more sensitive to insulin. The film boasts that the Whole Foods diet will relieve hypertension and reverse diabetes.

5. I have noticed that when I eat specific types of food I feel lighter and quicker.

6. To reconcile these two conclusions I would say that either diet could be performed with good results. However I have done my own research in this area and I’ve come to the conclusion that meat products may actually be an inferior form of nutrition as they are prone to cause cancer and generally reduce athletic performance in comparison to equal nutrition using plant products.

1. The herbal medication that I would be talking about is garlic. When used as a medicinal product garlic may produce both good and bad effects on the body.

2. The efficacy of garlic for the prevention and treatment of a variety of diseases, acknowledging and validating its traditional uses.

3. The benefits of using garlic as medicine are a possibly effective aid in treating high blood pressure, coronary artery disease (hardened arteries), stomach cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer, and in preventing tick bites. Garlic applied to the skin may also be possibly effective in treating fungal skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch, or athlete’s foot. Garlic is also used for treating high cholesterol, stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori, cancer, or circulation problems in the legs. However, research has shown that garlic may not be effective in treating these conditions.

4. The risks of garlic include redness, swelling, or blistering (when applied to the skin); or easy bruising or bleeding (nosebleeds, bleeding gums). When eaten raw, some common side of garlic may include unpleasant breath or body odor; heartburn, burning in your mouth or throat; nausea, vomiting, gas, or diarrhea. You can’t take garlic if you are allergic to it, have a stomach ulcer, have problems with digestion, and have a bleeding or blood clotting disorder such as hemophilia.

5. Herbals are regulated in the United States as stated in the article “Dietary supplements that can be produced, sold, and marketed without first demonstrating safety and efficacy, as is required for pharmaceutical drugs. Also, the FDA bears the regulatory burden of proving that a dietary supplement is unsafe before it can be removed from the market—which is in direct contrast to drugs, where a manufacturer must provide the FDA with evidence of safety and efficacy before a product can be sold.”
