Foods That Hurt, Foods That Heal

Michael Roizen, M.D. By Tuesday, 09 August 2022 12:22 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

According to a study on the impact of diet on health published in The Lancet, poor diets were responsible for 10.9 million deaths, or 22% of all deaths among adults in 130 countries in 2017.

The Lancet study also concluded that non-optimal intake of whole grains, fruits, and sodium accounts for half of all diet-related deaths.

I've long said that processed meats are terrible for your health. Now a major health agency in France agrees. They've confirmed the connection between the nitrites found in processed meats and colorectal cancer. And that comes after the World Health Organization's 2015 conclusion that processed meats should be classified as a group 1 carcinogen.

And Americans eat a lot of processed meat. It’s little wonder that the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be 106,180 new cases of colon cancer and 44,850 new cases of rectal cancer in 2022 in the U.S.

Do I need to say it again? "Don't eat processed meat."

On the other hand, the power of good food choices is clearly revealed in research published in the British Journal of Nutrition. Researchers found that people who eat plenty of fresh fruit are less depressed and cognitively sharper than folks who don't. They also found that those who eat salty, fatty snacks have more symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress.

Getting a minimum of 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit (no sugar added) daily should help your outlook — as it helps your digestive health and heart health, and reduces your risk of some cancers.
