Take time to educate yourself before judging....
11 July 2017 | by emmanutellaSee all my reviews

All these bad reviews aren't based on true facts but on doubt. It is normal behavior to get angry when another person comes up with conclusions that doesn't resonate with our own beliefs. You probably have these thoughts because doctors not yet have found "the cure" for every disease..

Look at people at the retirement homes..Do they look healthy? can they walk, remember, are they super energetic? most often the answer is no..

I have now seen thousands of remarkable situations, which you can see on Mcdougall site.. There was this man who could not walk, talk, feed himself or remember. He changed his diet, and even took his driver license again, played crazy memory games and can now talk again..

I can tell you that Dr. T. Colin Campbell was raised on a farm, and he believed that milk, eggs and meat were natures best food, until he found that several illnesses DIDN'T EXCIST in Asia.. until their kids got the typical Western diet (meat, cheese, eggs, and guess what. these kids got diabetes, cancer, stroke... (these people were eating mostly plant based with little to no meat)

He began studying mice, and tried to feed them animal protein.. what happened? The cancer cells GREW! then they reduced the animal protein and the cancer cells reduced...

Dr. Mcdougall used to eat A LOT of fast food and even got the stroke..

Neal Bearnard used to see his mother carefully pour the grease into a jar and use again..

NONE of these doctors were raised plant based, but they became unpopular, because they were more interested in making people healthy than profit (medicine)

Doctors have little to NO education on how diet can prevent and reverse stroke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, acne, dementia, Alzheimer's, Astma, and more..

What is so bad about turning one belief to another? It can safe lives. From a very young age, kids are thought to believe one thing, and cannot see things from other perspectives.

I can tell that I used to eat so much meat, gravy, cheese and thought I was fine... I had terrible joint paints, acne, felt tired, and after going vegan, the symptoms were GONE And I'm NEVER EVER SICK(!) I have muscles now, and have so much energy, and I never thought I could feel so light and energetic...

They are not promoting Sugar, but saying that saying that sugar does not have any effect on the body alone...

These doctors have told to eat FRUIT SUGAR which is ABSOLUTELY not the same as refined sugar, which in great amounts can cause bad teeth...

There is a lot of information to find on YouTube with plant based diets, Ted Talks for example, and speeches from the doctors.. Not everything is what we believe, so it is our own responsibility to research

What if someone told you there was another way to do something and you got mad? Just educate yourself, and see how much your life can improve...
