What about Mercola?

I get many emails requesting my opinions about Dr Mercola’s dietary advice so its time I wrote a blog about it. Im sure Jo Mercola is a nice guy and obviously has a passion for sales & marketing and thats fine but the numerous people Ive heard back from when they follow these quack, low carb, high fat diets has inspired me to speak up so others can learn before they get suckered in by the enticing ‘buy 2 GET ONE FREE!’ speel. Mercola advises people against eating a fruit salad but advises people follow ‘metabolic typing’ and eat fried chicken livers for breakfast and ‘depending your metabolic typing, use pig fat or coconut oil…’ The dude is a snake oil salesman with a capital S. 😉 Mercola recently put up an informercial in the ‘Huffington post’ talking about the dangers of eating fruit ‘cos its got fructose mate!’. The question I ask is how come they can never do a study on human fruit eaters vs using studies done on rats using GMO HFCS? That would be worth noting. Mercola tried to ‘debunk’ the china study. For those that don’t know what the China Study is, its just the most comprehensives nutritional study ever done..so its no big deal.. 😉 It was put together by Dr Campbell and has over 700 studies corroborating its findings. Mercola said its...

Aajonus Vonderplanitz is a fraud?

Aajonus Vonderplanitz is from California and his real name is Dick something. He was an actor on General Hospital turn diet guru overnight. He has a self appointed Phd in nutrition. In an interview with Stanley Bass Aajonus said “I have always since the age of 3, craved orgasim.” He has a book called ‘We want to live’ and its written like a novel. Very entertaining reading but for the uninformed, very dangerous information. Aajonus talks about eating green bananas vs ripe ones and that you should eat lots of white bread baguettes with raw unsalted butter if you get low blood sugar. But sweet fruit is bad he says. A good friend of mine and ex housemate was an Aajonus fan. She ate his high fat, low fruit diet and I personally felt she suffered the whole time from melancholy, fatigue and binge prone eating (as I later found out). She ended up getting some food poisoning from animal products and decided to do an unsupervised fast with phone guidance from ‘dont eat more than a banana a day’ John Fielder. She got real dehydrated and ended up in hospital on life support and passed away soon after from renal failure. I was in Thailand at the time and know for fact that had she not eaten this high fat, animal based diet, she would be here today...

Eat yourself impotent.

Eat Yourself Impotent by Dr McDougall. Erectile dysfunction: the new harbinger for major adverse cardiac events in the diabetic patient by Carmine Gazzaruso in the May 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found, “…ED is a powerful predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients with silent CAD…”1 An accompanying study, Erectile dysfunction predicts coronary heart disease in type 2 diabetes, in this same issue by Ronald Ching-Wan Ma found, “In type 2 diabetic men without clinically overt cardiovascular disease, the presence of ED predicts a new onset of CHD events. Symptoms of ED should be independently sought to identify high-risk subjects for comprehensive cardiovascular assessments.”2 Comment: The same high fat animal based diet that closes the arteries to the heart (heart attacks) and brain (stroke) also closes the arteries to the penis—the result is erectile dysfunction (ED), which means a delay in time to maximal erection, reduced rigidity, and decreased ability to sustain an erection. An interesting question asked in an accompanying editorial was, “ Why does ED seem to precede symptoms of CAD in patients with a vascular etiology for ED?”3The answer, “…this phenomenon relates to the size or diameter of the blood vessels. For example, the penile artery has a diameter of 1 to 2 mm, whereas the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery is 3 to 4 mm in...
