More Than an Apple a Day: Combating Common Diseases. Transcript: More Than an Apple a Day: Combating Common Diseases. For those of you unfamiliar with my work, every year I read through every issue of every English- language nutrition journal in the world- so you don't have to.
Every year my presentations are brand- new because every year the science is brand- new. I then compile all the most interesting, the most groundbreaking, the most practical findings and create videos, for my website, Nutrition. Facts. org. Everything on the website is free. There are no ads, no corporate sponsorship, It's strictly noncommercial; I'm not selling anything. I just put it up as a public service. New videos and articles every day, on the latest in nutritional science. In my annual presentation last year, I ran through the 1.
Wisconsin State Journal news, sports, lifestyle and entertainment focuses on Madison WI. The Twelve Dogs of Christmas By David Rosenfelt. Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter usually tries to avoid taking on new cases at all costs. The Blatant Lies trope as used in popular culture. There's nothing to see! So one of the characters has a secret, one 8 Signs Your Landlord Secretly Has Your Back. If you’d rather have dental work done than deal with your landlord, you just might not be giving your landlord a fair. Acquired trait: A phenotypic characteristic, acquired during growth and development, that is not genetically based and therefore cannot be passed on to the next.
Since side- effects from prescription drugs kill an estimated 1. Americans a year, the sixth leading cause of death, may actually be, doctors.. And that's just from adverse drug reactions.

Add in medical mistakes, which the Institute of Medicine estimates kills at least 4. Americans every year, and that brings doctors, up to here. Throw in some hospital- acquired infections, and we're talking maybe 1. Americans dead every year and millions injured by, medical care. The best way to avoid the adverse effects of medical and surgical tests and treatments is not to avoid doctors, but to avoid getting sick in the first place.
So this year I thought I'd run through the top dozen reasons people visit their doctors to highlight some of the latest research in hopes of moving me lower down the list of common killers. The #1 primary disease diagnosis at office visits is a respiratory disease, like the common cold.
Most Americans, report between 2 and 3 colds annually. This year, I featured evidence suggesting that simple water gargling, is effective to prevent upper respiratory tract infections.
This virtually cost- free modality would appreciably benefit people. But that's the problem: it's . That's why you've probably never heard of this research. Whenever there's a new drug or surgical procedure, you can be assured people will know about it, because there's a profit motive, a corporate budget driving the promotion. That's why you'll never see an ad on TV for broccoli. Same with exercise- can also improve immunity and decreases illness rates from respiratory infections.
We're talking a 2. Name one drug or supplement that can do that.
And it doesn't take much. Let kids run around for just 6 minutes and you can boost the number of immune cells in their blood stream by more than a third. In just six minutes!
At the other end of the life cycle, exercise may help prevent age- related immune decline. Sedentary women in their 7. And the runners in the group got it under 1. Looks like, exercise can make our immune system like 5 times more effective. Who wouldn't want a boosted immune system?
Well, millions of people suffer from auto- immune diseases, whose immune systems may already be a bit too active, so might a healthy lifestyle make things worse by boosting immune function further? Those who eat healthy appear protected from autoimmune diseases, given the extraordinary rarity of most autoimmune diseases among those following a traditional plant- based diet, for example. Before they Westernized their diet, not a single case of multiple sclerosis was diagnosed among 1. What about treating autoimmune diseases with a plant- based diet? Well, even a semi- vegetarian diet was found to successfully treat Crohn's disease, better than any other intervention.
We learned last year that it does not seem to prevent or delay long- term disability. That leaves chemo drugs like mitoxantrone that causes irreversible heart damage in 1 out of every 8 people who go on the drug and treatment- related acute leukemia- it causes leukemia in nearly 1% of people who take it. But hey, MS is no walk in the park. If only there was a cheap, simple, safe, side- effect free solution that also just so happened to be the most effective treatment for MS ever described. Dr. Roy Swank, who we lost at age 9. I'll just cut to the chase.
But now we know animal fats can have all sorts of other adverse effects such as inflammation, so who knows what the actual mechanism may be. Regardless, the results Dr. Swank published remain the most effective, treatment of multiple sclerosis ever reported in the peer reviewed medical literature.
In patients with early stage MS, 9. To date, no medication or invasive procedure has ever even come close, to demonstrating such success. Doesn't cost $3. 0,0. Neurological problems are second on the list, but tend to be more common conditions like headaches. Feel free to check out my videos on treating migraine headaches with lavender oil rubbed on the upper lip and hot sauce in the nose for cluster headaches? Believe me, it's better than having cluster headaches. I've talked about both preventing and treating Parkinson's with a plant- based diet, since it's a leading killer, but the most common movement disorder, isn't Parkinson's, it's what's called .
In addition to the potentially debilitating hand tremor, there can be other neuropsychiatric manifestations of the disease including difficulty walking and various levels of cognitive impairment. What causes it? Well there's group of neurotoxins that produce tremor called beta carboline alkaloids. Harmane is one of the most potent of these tremor- producing neurotoxins. You expose people to these chemicals and they develop a tremor; you take it away, the tremor disappears.
What if we're exposed long- term? Well, this recent study found those with essential tremor have much higher levels of this toxin in their bloodstream compared to those without tremor. How did they get exposed to it? Primarily through meat: beef, chicken and pork- and fish actually. So if this potent, tremor- producing neurotoxin, is concentrated, in, cooked muscle foods, is meat consumption associated with a higher risk of essential tremor? Men who ate the most meat in this study had 2.
Just to put that in context, you go back to the original studies on smoking and lung cancer, smoking was only linked to at most 1. That's like a 2,0. Next on the list is circulatory, diseases, the number one killer of men and women. Among populations eating plant- based diets, MS, was almost non- existent. What about heart disease? Last year, the International Journal of Epidemiology reprinted this landmark article from the 5.
What were they eating? No, here's age- matched heart attack rates in Uganda versus St. Out of 6. 32 autopsies in Uganda. One, myocardial infarction. Out of 6. 32 Missourans- -same age and gender distribution- - 1. More than 1. 00 times the rate of our #1 killer.
In fact they were so blown away they did another 8. Uganda, and still, just that one small healed infarct (meaning it wasn't even the cause of death) out of 1,4. Less than 1 in a thousand. These are among our most common diseases, like obesity. Hiatal hernia, one of the most common stomach problems, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins, the most common venous disorders, colorectal cancer, the #2 cause of cancer death, Diverticulosis, the #1 disease of the intestine, Appendicitis - the #1 cause for emergency abdominal surgery, Gallbladder disease .
If you look at the teeth of people who lived over 1. Didn't brush a day in their lives, never flossed, no Listerine, no water pik.. That's because candy bars hadn't been invented yet.
Why do people continue to get cavities when we know they're preventable though diet? Because the pleasure people derive from dessert may outweigh, the cost and discomfort of the dentist.. And that's fine! Look, as long as people understand the consequences of their actions, as a physician what more can I do? If you're an adult and decide the benefits outweigh the risks for you and your family, then go for it- I certainly enjoy the occasional indulgence (I've got a good dental plan).
But what if instead of the plaque, on your teeth, we're talking about the plaque building up in your arteries? Another disease that can be prevented, by changing your diet. Then what are the consequences for you and your family? Now we're not just talking about scraping tartar. Now we're talking life, and, death.. The most likely reason most of our loved ones will die, is heart disease. It's still up to each of us to make our own decisions as to what to eat and how to live- but we should make our choices consciously, educating ourselves about the predictable consequences of our actions.
Atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, begins in childhood. By age 1. 0, the arteries of nearly all kids have fatty streaks- the first stage of the disease. Then the plaques, start forming in our 2. In our hearts, it's a heart attack, in our brains it's a stroke, in our extremities it can mean gangrene, and in our aorta, an aneurism. If there is anyone in this audience.. Ornish and Esselstyn proved, you can reverse heart disease with a plant- based diet. But we don't have to wait for our first heart attack to unclog our arteries, we can start reversing our heart disease right now.
We can start reversing heart disease in our kids, tonight. How do we do it? According to the Editor- in- Chief of the American Journal of Cardiology this year, the only risk factor required for these atherosclerotic plaques, our #1 killer, is cholesterol. To drop our LDL cholesterol, we need to drop our intake of three things, trans fat, saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol. Trans fats increase our risk of heart disease, sudden death, and diabetes, and are basically found only one place in nature: animal fat. The food industry, however, found a way to synthetically create, these toxic fats by hardening vegetable oil in a process called hydrogenation, which rearranges their atoms to make them behave more like, animal fats. Currently, nearly half, of America's trans fat intake, comes from animal products.
Blatant Lies - TV Tropes What a trustworthy fellow.! Nothing at all! So one of the characters has a secret, one that they do not want leaking out. Unfortunately, Clark Kenting doesn't always cut it, and some aspect of the secret is going to be glaringly obvious no matter what. So they have to come up with an excuse for their situation, and tell a lie. When it fails, you get That Liar Lies followed by Implausible Deniability. May or may not involve hesitation.
Will almost inevitably accompany any Paper- Thin Disguise or Most Definitely Not a Villain. Often delivered by a Bad Liar. Suspiciously Specific Denial is a subtrope. See also Metaphorically True. Do not contrast with I Lied, which is when a character outright lies, but the lying is not blatant.
Refuge in Audacity covers the cases when this ploy actually works. This is an actual quote from the ad. Ad Guy: We can't say it'll make you quit smoking, but thousands quit every day. We can't say it's a healthy smoke, but you do the math! Agent Burke: That's a gun. Michael: That's a napkin.
Agent Burke: I can literally see it. Fi: Oh, that's my cellphone. Fi: That's my other cell phone. Michael: She's a..
This got to the point that someone actually filed a lawsuit claiming false advertising. And they will assume the one drinking the out of the most space- agey container is our leader.! They're not even square!
Subverted in a classic Silver Age comic of The Flash which ends with Iris wondering aloud about the timing of Barry's absences. Without missing a beat, Barry just tells her she's right: !
Iris learns Barry's identity because he talks in his sleep but he doesn't end up telling her for another year. This obviously bothers her a bit.
Justified in a retcon because Barry isn't sure if he's still human and wants to determine if he and Iris can have children before breaking the news to her. Eventually, it got to the point that you could count on what he said to be lies. This is even lampshaded by the Jackal himself when he assaults Shriek in order to take the Carrion Virus from her. Jackal: I'd tell you this wouldn't hurt.. But that's only because I'm a notorious liar..
Since Matt's identity had been publicly revealed so many times at that point, virtually everyone in the series had figured out that he was Daredevil, despite Matt's protestations. Consequently, it became common for people to address him as Daredevil, and him to simply say . In one issue, he showed up. For example, Richard Nixon is once shown as a young George Washington, standing near the cherry tree that he cut down, holding an axe behind his back and saying, ! Dave immediately sees through it and reveals that it's all a lie. Of course, this falls flat when one remembers that all throughout Act V, their leader, Jenner Rythmore, not only wasn't willing to give peace with monsters a chance, but openly stated that he was just waiting for the first possible excuse he could use to declare open war on the monster world. Common in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfics, both because several cast members are Bad Liars and because they frequently engage in such on the show.
Again, she engages in this even in her Inner Monologue. This is consistent with Shane's duplicitous nature in The Walking Dead when he lies about leaving Otis for dead and killing Randall.
Did you get beat up by this guy? Vegeta: I fell down some stairs.
Krillin: No you didn't, you— Vegeta: Shut up before I throw you down a flight! When lying, they dull quite a bit, so when they need a way to dull her powers.. Hilariously enough, Faren was actually playing dumb on behalf of the dwarven noble protagonist. His favorite answer to . Obviously Dumbledore was struck speechless by the lies and thus couldn't be bothered to deny it. She would rather be doing her job - killing people.
Altair: You can't go, . Altair: This is serious, and you're being flippant! Isra: Oh, perish the thought! What else would I hang on to. The description in his journal of the first meeting with Earth ambassadors and their escort as 'subduing them with his commanding aura' and of the 'million sighs' of relief they produced when he informed them of coming in peace and not in conquest drew a lot of laughs from the ambassadors and the intelligence analysts who spied it. She unfortunately doesn't see the problem in this.
And also, she can clearly see Pinkie's costume hanging out of a closet over there. Pinkie Pie insists that she's mistaken. My family cheered me on and said to come home safe.
Naruto: Did you say you would? It seemed the kindest thing to do. The four accept this, but the reader has known all along that they were initially brought over as subjects in an undergraduate psychology experiment, and everything the two aliens said was a complete lie. In part two of the Epilogue, Shag is ashamed to have lied so blatantly to the four, but Varx points out they almost certainly wouldn't have reacted well to the truth.
How else were we gonna explain everything? The fic is marked as Angst/Romance between Bellatrix Lestrange & Seamus Finnegan. They don't appear once. She then opens her right eye, throws the game, and comments how . It's unclear whether Hisa, who kisses Mihoko on the forehead instead is fooled or if she merely doesn't care, although the latter is more likely.
I've had enough of your lying! This prompts Pyrrha to roll for intimidation and whisper in the Game Master's ear. When she's done, he looks afraid, and the NPC gives them the horses and supplies into the bargain.
What did you say to her? She tells him it's just a flesh wound before yelling for the medic. He has four compound fractures of the ribcage and an obvious sucking chest wound, and dies less than a minute later. He isn't entirely convinced (. The advice given is lie blatantly; just issue a flat denial ignoring any evidence to the contrary.
Because they have absolutely no occult Horrorcore lyrics in ANY of their work, they've never questioned the existence and virtue of. God, and the idea of intentionally creating bad publicity to make it big is 1. So they couldn't possibly have either dedicated themselves to the Devil or opportunistically taken such a persona in a shock and awe effort so they could become stars, because they will quickly tell you that it did not happen. Your hands and face are smeared with blood. She doesn't take it well.
After several years they finally admitted to having completely made up that story. Originally called Innocent Criminals, they allegedly were given the name Silverchair by one of the administrators of the Pick Me competition, which they won. It's unknown why they lied about it, but it might be because they didn't like the fact that the name was imposed upon them and/or they feared its Narnia origins might undermine their early alternarock sound (it was a better fit with their later albums). Stephen Malkmus claimed that they were invited to play at the . The Title Track occupies the first position instead. It's a song expressly about using this trope to pick up women. Co- worker: I was killed by a squadron of giant military squirrels.
Wally: He doesn't respect you enough to tell a plausible lie. Dilbert: I demand a plausible lie!
Co- worker: Okay, maybe I wasn't killed by giant military squirrels. But I was imprisoned in their secret lair at the center of the earth. Wally: You can't prove that one either way.
Dilbert: He did say it was a . One of the former image caption's quotes comes from after he threw a snowball at Susie. Your grandfather and I used to put on leopard skins and brontosaurus for all the clan rituals. Mom(after Calvin has left): Listen, buster, I think Calvin's grades are bad enough, don't you?
Dad: Most people go to Sears, buy the kit, then follow the assembly instructions. Calvin: I came from SEARS?!? Dad: No, you were a Blue- light Special from K- Mart; almost as good and a whole lot cheaper. Dad: It tells what it's like to raise a kid.
Dad: You're not allowed to know that until it's too late not to have one. One strip uses this in tandem with I Lied.
Calvin: Any monsters under my bed tonight? Calvin: Well, there'd better not be! I'd hate to have to torch one with my flame thrower!
Hobbes: You have a flame thrower? Calvin: They lie, I lie. When she confronts him and asks . Garfield told her to ask him about his 2. However, they've lied in a few other ways a few times that fans didn't appreciate as much.
John Cena never gives up. Both he and the WWE make that claim all the time, because well, full- blooded American heroes like the type he's supposed to be never give up.
Problem is, he has given up, three times, to Kurt Angle in No Mercy in 2. No Way Out 2. 00. Chris Benoit in Smackdown 2.
And the WWE definitely doesn't want to talk about that one. Chris Benoit's suicide after murdering his family has caused the WWE to swear never to speak of him again, and as a result, have erased his role in every previous storyline via Retcon and disabled the ability to search for his matches on their website, pretending they didn't happen.
Whether you agree with this policy or not, it remains one of their biggest and most blatant deceptions. During that storyline, Austin was hit by a car driven by Rikishi(oddly enough), and as a result, had to sit out the Triple Threat main event, and was replaced by The Big Show at the last minute. Fair enough, but the trouble is, this fake injury was made to cover up a real one, which was the actual reason he couldn't participate in the event.
His neck had been hurt since Summer Slam 1. The WWE knew that, but had booked him for the main event of Survivor Series that year, promoting an event they knew he'd never be able to make (driving up sales, naturally, as fans tend to pay more for a match with the star) and using the phony story to excuse it.
This wasn't technically false advertising, but it wasn't exactly . Various sources have claimed the actual number was closer to 8. Nonetheless, when the rebooted episodes of ECW started to tank badly, they promised an all- Diva game of Strip Poker.
