Exercise Can Kill You
Exercise is not the panacea to awesome health as nearly everyone claims. Almost universally, health, and diet books rave on and on about the importance of exercise. No book can be listed here as a reference that says anything critical of exercise. Science and actual results tell a far different story, proving that exercise can lead to numerous diseases - several that will bring an early death. The facts are presented here.
In the 1960s, hard physical work and exercise were considered to be unhealthy. Smoking, heart disease, and cancer were commonplace. Obese children were very rare, perhaps only one or two in the typical high school. Obesity among adults was not a serious problem either. Diabetes was not common. Then health authorities in all English-speaking countries began recommending a major switch in the diet from meat and animal fats to low-fat, low-cholesterol diets that were to be high in whole-grains, fruits, and complex carbohydrates. Saturated fat was labeled as the scourge of mankind. President John Kennedy instituted a "get healthy" program that emphasized exercise and jogging. Kids were made to run around the block during physical education classes instead of playing on the school playground. We were told that by stopping smoking, beginning an exercise program, and eating a low-fat diet we would promote awesome health benefits.
Health clubs, yoga groups, joggers, bikers, and running events are now on every street. One must keep a constant outlook for runners and bikers mixing with automobile traffic for road space. Street signs showing a biker displays the words, "Share the Road." Lines are painted on the streets to show the new lanes for bikers and joggers. Low-fat diet programs abound with seminars and support groups. Smoking is now against the law in public places in most cities. Well, how is that working for you?
Oops! The new obesity epidemic is literally off the charts. People stopped smoking and began running, but heart disease and lung cancer have actually increased. Lung cancer is now very common among athletes who have never smoked a day in their lives. Marathon runner are dropping dead during the run while still only middle age or younger (see a few dozen popular deaths listed below). Diabetes is now epidemic with 65% dying of heart disease and 25% dying of cancer. The escalation of Alzheimer's Disease of off the chart thereby creating panic among the elderly if they forget a telephone number. Special Alzheimer's treatment centers are commonplace.
Babies, infants, and children are not immune to the upturn in obesity and diseases. Children are now developing adult onset diabetes at an alarming rate. Autism has skyrocketed (BTW, baby brains are not made of lettuce). Get a clue people. Duh!

Recent Testimony From an Athlete
Michel wrote from Sweden on December 5, 2009, about his awesome improvements in health and athletic performance after being on the low-carbohydrate diet presented here for only a few weeks.
Myth No. 1 - Exercise Will Make You Lose Weight and Cure Obesity.
This myth is so widespread and often repeated that most people believe it without question. The new United States Department of Agriculture 2005 USDA Food Guide Pyramid will stress exercise as the cure for the ever-expanding obesity problem found in all English-speaking countries. The obese are told they can become normal weight and health simply by moving the body. "Move the body - move the body." They are told to get out there and work that fat off. The obese know it's a lie. Most have given it a try to no avail. This is a slick scam to shift the blame for the failures of the past Food Guide Pyramid from the USDA to the obese who suffer because they followed the previous advice.
Exercise does not prevent Alzheimer's disease.
The fact is that the obese get a lot of exercise simply by hauling those extra pounds of fat around with them all the time. They huff and puff simply to haul the extra 100 pounds up a flight of stairs. Thin people who are screaming at fat people to exercise more should strap on 100 pounds of lead weight and haul it around 24 hours a day to see how it feels. Exercise will not make obese people thin.
Exercise burns very few calories. A person can run for 60 minutes and then eat a snack with the same amount of calories in only one minute. To make matters worse people are told they need to eat more carbohydrates for energy. This is another big lie. Carbohydrates are not needed for energy. The scientific minimum requirement for carbohydrates per day is ZERO.
Exercise does not make obese people thin and never did. It has all been a big fat lie.
The obese will never become thin and healthy eating the high-carbohydrate diet recommended by the Food Guide Pyramid no matter how much they exercise. The myth that carbohydrates are essential in the diet is stated over and over in health and diet articles, books, and websites, yet every person who goes on the low-carbohydrate diet quickly proves the fallacy of this myth. The lower the amount of carbohydrates in the diet the healthier one becomes. Carbohydrates cause many diseases which take years to develop and have come to be called "age related" diseases, a convenient excuse.
Overweight people should never run or jog. The extra weight quickly crushes the knees and smashes the ankles. This is why overweight people are rarely seen running. They simply can't. It is stupid to encourage overweight people to run and then criticize them when they are forced to stop. Thin jocks who complain about an obese person not running should put a 50-lb. (23 kg) bag of wheat over each shoulder and try it. Thin people can run only because they are thin. Running did not make them thin. They were thin before they started running.
Female marathon runners with an "E" cup bra size never finish the race. The womanly figure may be beautiful, but it certainly isn't compatible with running.
Myth No. 2 - Exercise Will Prevent Heart Disease.
Running for hours day after day does not prevent heart disease. Excessive exercise most likely increases the chances of having a heart attack. Runners tend to eat a high-carbohydrate diet thinking they need extra glucose for energy. This is not the healthiest approach. The glucose causes insulin resistance and raises the blood insulin level, which by itself is a heart disease risk. The heart muscle burns fatty acids for energy, not glucose. The following two marathon runners are prime examples of those who exercised excessively but still developed heart disease at a relatively young age.
Myths About Exercise by Dr. Larry Wilson.
The often-heard statement that exercise will prevent heart disease is pure nonsense. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Professional and nonprofessional athletes die of heart disease at an alarming rate every year. Marathon runner James F. Fixx is a great example. James F. Fixx wrote two books on the health benefits of exercise and running, but he died in 1984 from a heart attack at a young age of 52 in his running shoes while on a daily run. Mr. Fixx discovered in his own study that his college alumni who were in athletics died earlier than the "couch potato" alumni. Professional athletes die young. The major contributing factor to Mr. Fixx's heart disease was his switch to a vegetarian diet several years earlier. The vegetarian diet is severely deficient in protein. It is very high in carbohydrates that produce the three heart disease-causing hormones, insulin, cortisol, and adrenaline. The Omega-6 fatty acids that are predominant in whole grains, nuts, seeds, vegetable oils, and beans produce the heart disease-causing pro-inflammatory eicosanoids prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) and leukotriene B(4) (LTB(4)). The vegetarian diet and running are a deadly combination.

Dead Marathon or Triathlon Competitors
Below is a partial list of recent dead as a result of marathons or triathlons.
There are too many to list here. This is just a splattering.
Is this healthy or simply mass mental sickness?
The list below is just of a few of the runners who have died recently in their running shoes. This list does not include the hundreds of professional athletes in other sports like basketball, football, hockey, and shocker who simply collapse and die from a heart attack. You've heard the story about marathon runner James Fixx, but you may not know about Edmund Burke, Ph.D., who was to serious endurance cycling competitor. Dr. Burke died on a training ride on November 7, 2002, at age 53. And you almost certainly haven't heard of Frederick J. Montz, M.D. (1955-2002), David A. Nagey, M.D. (1950-2002), or Jeffrey A. Williams, M.D. (1951-2002) three brilliant physicians at Johns Hopkins University who all died while they were running together. The oldest of the three was 51. These doctors certainly prove they did not understand what constitutes a healthy diet to prevent heart disease.

Oshkosh Woman's Triathlon Death Prompts Lawsuit
August 6, 2010.
The family of an Oshkosh woman who died during a triathlon last summer has filed a lawsuit against the organizers. The lawsuit alleges that Midwest Sports Events and its executive director were negligent by failing to train lifeguards or provide adequate emergency care. Forty-three-year-old Kim M. Schmidt died while competing in the Oshkosh Area Triathlon. She was unresponsive when she was pulled from the water during the quarter-mile swim. She was later pronounced dead."
United Kingdom's RAF's Second in Command Dies During Triathlon
Telegraph.co.uk - May 26, 2010.
"RAF's second in command dies during triathlon. Air Chief Marshal Sir Christopher Moran, 54, who held the second most senior job in the Air Force, is thought to have suffered heart failure during the 5km run at the end of the race around RAF Brize Norton, Oxon."
Man Dies in Hayden Triathlon
The Spokesman-Review - July 31, 2010.
"A 60-year old man suffered cardiac arrest and died early this morning while participating in the Hayden View Triathlon. Leslie Chariton was swimming just after 7:30 a.m. when he was pulled from the race for treatment on Honeysuckle Beach, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said. He was transported to Kootenai Medical Center, where it was confirmed he died from cardiac arrest. His wife and son were at the race, a Kootenai officer said."
Coach Who Died at Triathlon: 'She had no idea how loved she was'
NWFdailynews.com - June 21, 2010.
The 40-year-old Shalimar Elementary School physical education teacher collapsed during the run portion of Eglin's My First Tri on Saturday. First responders assisted at the scene and transported her to the base hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
"'She was perfectly healthy,' Ziegenhorn said. 'Bernie's whole life was physical education. She trained a year to do this and was perfectly healthy.'"
March 2, 2008. "LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A 27-year-old Wisconsin man collapsed and died Sunday after completing the Little Rock Marathon. Adam Nickel, of Madison, Wis., was pronounced dead late Sunday morning near the finish line of the race, which attracted about 9,000 entrants, race officials said. Emergency personal used mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to try to revive Nickel until an ambulance arrived with a defibrillator. He could not be revived and was pronounced dead after being taken to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Hospital."
PowerBar founder Brian Maxwell collapsed and died at 51 years of age on March 20, 2004, in San Anselmo, California. Brian Maxwell was a marathon runner, but he died of a heart attack at a very young age. His exercise, diet, and energy bar did not provide the awesome health as commonly expected, but more than likely caused his early death. A former world-class marathon runner, Maxwell reportedly collapsed in a post office, and emergency personnel were unable to resuscitate him. The PowerBar company has become a multimillion-dollar empire since Maxwell and his wife, a nutritionist, founded it in 1986. They began selling the popular energy bars out of their kitchen, and over the next 10 years the company grew to $150 million in sales. In March, 2000, the couple sold the company to Nestle SA for a reported $375 million. Maxwell thought of the idea to make PowerBars while running a 26.2-mile marathon. He had to stop the race after 21 miles, the point at which experts say the body stops burning carbohydrates and starts to burn muscle tissue. In 1977, Track and Field News ranked Maxwell the No. 3 runner in the world, and in 1980, he was part of the Olympic team that boycotted the games in Moscow. He represented Canada in many international competitions as a long-distance runner.
Maxwell has proven once again that exercise does not prevent heart disease. He has also confirmed that the high-carbohydrate diet causes heart disease. His wife was a professional nutritionist and co-developer of the PowerBar, yet they created a "health product" that is pure garbage nutritionally. They both were strong promoters of conventional high-carbohydrate nutrition. She is rich, but he is dead.
Three marathon runner suffered heart attacks in the Los Angeles marathon - March 19, 2006. Two men suffer fatal heart attacks along the 26.2-mile route. Another who collapsed is hospitalized in critical condition. The weather was perfect, the field enthusiastic, the times respectable, but Los Angeles' annual street party masquerading as street race was marred Sunday by the deaths of two runners and the collapse of an elderly man who was hospitalized in critical condition. Two retired law enforcement officers died after collapsing on the route. Det. Raul Reyna, 53, suffered a heart attack at mile 24 near Olympic Boulevard and Westmoreland Avenue, two miles short of the finish line. He died at Good Samaritan Hospital. The 28-year Los Angeles Police Department veteran had worked on the use of force investigation team at Parker Center, officials said. "His face was covered with blood and his eyes were open, but we never really got a pulse," said Lawson, a private pilot who volunteers part time on a ski patrol team. He and another runner, a physician, spent several minutes trying to revive Leone before paramedics arrived, said Lawson, who then resumed his run. Leone was pronounced dead upon arrival at California Hospital Medical Center. Just nine blocks into the race Sunday, a third runner, believed to be in his 70s, suffered a heart attack near the intersection of Figueroa and 15th streets. The man, whose name was not released, was taken by paramedics to California Hospital Medical Center, where he was in critical but stable condition Sunday night.
San Francisco marathon racer dies near end of the race - July 31, 2006. "Friends say man, 43, was 'fit as a fiddle'. William Goggins, 43, of San Francisco, collapsed from apparent heart failure after he passed the 24-mile mark of the 26.2 mile race, authorities said."
Runner Dies During Marine Corps Marathon - October 30, 2006. "Earl Seyford, 56, of Olney, collapsed just before Mile 17 of the 26.2-mile course at approximately 12:20 p.m. He was airlifted from the 14th Street Bridge to Washington Hospital Center, according to race spokeswoman Beth Cline. A hospital spokeswoman confirmed that Seyford died at 1:10 p.m. but would not provide more details. A D.C. police spokesman said Seyford suffered what appeared to be "a heart attack or a stroke.""
Veteran marathon runner dies in first half of Pikes Peak Marathon - August 22, 2005. "A veteran marathon runner with no history of heart problems collapsed and died Sunday while competing in the Pikes Peak Marathon. Gary P. Williams, 59, of Norman, Okla., died of a suspected heart attack despite attempts by fellow competitors to save him shortly after he collapsed a little more than two miles from the 14,115-foot summit."
A 53-year-old runner who collapsed during the weekend Hong Kong marathon has died, a government spokeswoman said on Tuesday, February 14, 2006. The condition of a 33-year-old man who also collapsed during Sunday's race had improved from critical to serious, she added without giving the cause.
A highly respected former teacher died in searing heat during an Australia Day triathlon. Neil Williams, 49, collapsed during the 2km run on January 28, 2005. He is believed to have suffered a heart attack.
A 37-year-old Sunshine Coast competitor died at the Noosa, Australia triathlon on November 7, 2004, after suffering a heart attack near the finish. Peter Semos was pronounced dead on arrival at Noosa Hospital, according to a statement from race medical director Richard Heath. He was competing in the 35-39 age category of the 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km run triathlon and was apparently near the end of the run when he collapsed. Event staff reached Semos soon after the incident, but could not revive him. It is understood Semos' wife was a spectator at the race. According to race officials, there has been one other death in the event's 22-year history. Several years ago, a man suffered a heart attack during the swim. Noosa is billed as the world's second-largest triathlon and the event attracted about 5000 competitors.
Six runners were hospitalized and 60 others were treated for dehydration during the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday, October 10, 2004. Metropolitan Ambulance Service spokesman Paul Holman said two runners collapsed midway and a further four at the finish line after suffering severe dehydration because of hot weather. The runners, among them two women aged 45 and 30, and a 24-year-old man, were taken to either St Vincent's Hospital or the Alfred hospital.
Fifty-year-old Patrick Owen Boros was near the end of the swimming leg of the triathlon race on the morning of August 15, 2004, when he went under the water on Green Lake. Rescuers were able to quickly find Boros in about five feet of water, but efforts to revive him failed.
On Sunday afternoon, December 10, 2002, Grant Hirohata-Goto, 33, was pronounced dead at The Queen's Medical Center after he failed to respond to life support treatment at the marathon medical tent next to the finish line at Kapi'olani Park.
Alem Techale was expected to be the next great distance talent off the Ethiopian production line. Two years ago she won the world youth title at 1500m. In three months, she was to marry her boyfriend, Kenenisa Bekele, probably the greatest distance runner of the moment, with an Olympic gold medal and world records at 5,000m and 10,000m to prove it. Yet the girl who died was a world champion runner only 18 years old, who inexplicably dropped dead while on a routine training run with her fiancee.
The dramatic death of Anna Loyley, age 26, in the Bath half-marathon in March, 1998, and the subsequent campaign of her parents has been covered in many national newspapers as well as by American internet journalism and short pieces and letters in the British Medical Journal. It led indirectly to a small conference on sudden cardiac death in sports. Organized by the National Sports Medicine Institute in March, 1999, with support from the British Heart Foundation, many of these issues were addressed.
On 17, October, 2004, in the Beijing Marathon, two persons running the marathon died. One of the victims was a fit young university student who started feeling ill around the 10km marker. Soon after the 19km marker, he fell unconscious and was pronounced "brain dead" at the Beijing hospital.
February 3, 2002, Andy Palmer, an all-around athlete and passionate runner, collapsed and died after a long run at age 48. He placed in several marathons and set an American record in the 30K run in 1984.
October 18, 2004, a 43-year-old man participating in the annual Toronto Marathon Sunday collapsed and died just one kilometer from the finish line. Race officials said the unidentified male collapsed around 10:45 a.m. just short of the finish line at Queen's Park. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead. "He stumbled, he said he wasn't feeling well and then he just collapsed," said Dr. Chris Woollam medical director of the Toronto Marathon.
October 17, 2005, a runner dies in Beijing Marathon. The man, surnamed Wang, collapsed unconscious about 27 km (17 miles) into the race and was rushed to hospital, but doctors were unable to save him.
October 17, 2005, a marathoner dies after crossing the finish line. For the second year in a row, a runner has died in the Toronto Marathon. The unidentified 36-year-old man from Oakville, Ont. was running in the half-marathon yesterday morning with thousands of others and collapsed moments after crossing the finish line. Three people have died in the event in the last four years. Medical personnel working with the race rushed to his aid, first trying CPR, then a defibrillator. As an ambulance tried to get through the crowd, he was placed on a stretcher while health workers continued trying CPR and administering oxygen. He was taken to hospital with no vital signs.
January 25, 1995, marathon running cardiologist and his star basketball patient both die of heart attacks. Dr. W. Thomas Nessa, a cardiologist for the Boston Celtics since 1987, died on Saturday. He was 48. The cause was a heart attack, his family said. In 1993, Dr. Nessa contributed to initial evaluations of Reggie Lewis, the Celtics' captain, who had collapsed during a game. Dr. Nessa helped convene a team of 12 heart specialists who began evaluating Mr. Lewis's heart condition. But Mr. Lewis abruptly got another medical opinion from a specialist who told him he had a benign fainting condition. He collapsed on the basketball court and died on July 27, 1993. Dr. Nessa was on the staff of New England Baptist Hospital and also cared for runners in the Boston Marathon, a race he completed several times.
"The truth is that marathon runners, ironman triathletes, and long-distance cyclists, swimmers, rowers, and cross-country skiers are all in the same boat. In fact, any athlete who participates in a strenuous test of endurance lasting about three hours or more has an increased chance of dying during - and for 24 hours following - the exertion, even when the athlete's chance of a death-door knock is compared with the risk incurred by a cigarette-smoking, sedentary layabout who spends the same 24 hours drinking beer and watching TV." Peak Performance.
Every year we hear of several athletes wobbling on their feet during a game and collapsing in a heap followed by death from a heart attack. The fans in the same age group watching the game are not dying from a heart attack, and they outnumber the athletics 1000 to 1. We would see a fan being hauled out of the bleachers on a gurney in every game if they had the same high risk as the athletes.
Athletes would not be dying at such an alarming rate if they ate a low-carbohydrate diet. Exercise will not overpower the heart disease-causing effects of eating a high-carbohydrate diet. To make matters worse, the athletes are told the lie that they need to a lot of carbohydrates for energy.
Ex-President Bill Clinton is a great example that proves the health recommendations from the American Medical Association (AMA) and others are wrong. They claim that heart artery plaque and cholesterol will build up over many years, even starting in childhood. We saw President Clinton jogging for eight years with the Secret Service agents being forced to plod along behind. We are told exercise prevents heart disease. "Run, run, run everyone," was the cry. This is nonsense. His face and body screamed warnings about his high blood insulin levels caused by eating carbohydrates. His world class medical care didn't bother to measure his blood insulin level because they don't see insulin as the health hazard that it is. BOOM - he has an emergency open heart surgery with a quadruple artery bypass to avoid the impending, life-threatening heart attack. What happened to the theory that exercise prevents heart disease which builds up over several decades? Now they say it was the fatty fast food burger he ate after leaving the White House where the kitchen staff prepared food fit for a king. What a scam! President Clinton's doctors gave him a protocol that causes heart disease, but they still think heart disease is caused by eating saturated animal fats.
Proof Saturated Fats Are Healthy.
Former President Bill Clinton
has the "best" health care in the world, and it is absolutely
free. So, why did he suddenly develop quadruple heart artery blockage
requiring bypass surgery? The
answer is simple. His doctors don't know that insulin causes heart
disease. They blame it on the saturated fat. Clinton is just one of
millions of people suffering from the AMA, AHA and USDA high-carb diet.
President Clinton was very fond of Asian Indian vegetarian foods.
Carbohydrates are highly addictive, and many people have lived their entire lives with an insulin rush from an excessive glucose intake. Insulin is the body's most powerful hormone, which makes it extremely difficult to resist carbohydrates. Many would rather be sick than give up their fruit with the high levels of fructose, the second most addictive carbohydrate. To be healthy one must break these addictions. The high-fat, low-carb diet will prevent heart disease. Exercise will not.
Maryanne reversed her heart disease without exercise on the high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. Maryanne did not exercise after her heart attack. She was involved in an automobile accident a few months before and suffered from a leg injury. Her overall activity was much less than that of the average healthy person. Exercise does not prevent heart disease and does not reverse heart disease as claimed.

Myth No. 3 - Exercise Will Prevent Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X.
Wrong again. New studies are now proving exercise does not help some people. This truth is surprising because most studies are fraudulently deceptive. The myth that exercise will prevent Syndrome X (metabolic syndrome) is scientifically unfounded and proven false in actual experiences. Most medical doctors, professional nutritionists, and diet book authors still believe the exercise myth. The dirty little secret in the study, Baby Boomers Melt Away Fat and Metabolic Syndrome With Exercise, is that the people were placed on diet restrictions as well. The diet restrictions were responsible for the reduction in metabolic syndrome, not the exercise. The diet is a reduction in calories and carbohydrate consumption. Foods such as sugar, potatoes, white bread, and white rice are eliminated from the diet. Metabolic syndrome is reduced because carbohydrates are reduced. People who begin an exercise program without any changes in diet quickly learn their obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other symptoms remain unchanged or become worse. It has been proven in Myth No. 2 above that people like marathon runners still develop metabolic syndrome and heart disease even though their exercise program could not be more intense.
Dr. David is another perfect example of an exercise nut who went from perfect health to metabolic syndrome, hypoglycemia, and heart disease. He followed the USDA Food Pyramid Guide to the letter. He ran several times a week along the beautiful mountain roads near his home. He breathed fresh mountain air. He ran the local 10k race every year. The arteries became plugged because he ate the high-carbohydrate diet recommended by his professional medical association.
Metabolic syndrome (Syndrome X) is the result of insulin resistance in body cells caused by the continual over consumption of carbohydrates for many years. The symptoms that identify the condition are normally obesity, high blood pressure, and blood sugar problems. This can be misleading, however, because many thin persons with normal blood pressure develop insulin resistance as did Dr. David. The medical test to determine the condition is the five-hour glucose tolerance test with both blood glucose and blood insulin measurements taken periodically. Insulin resistance is confirmed when the insulin level keeps rising without much of a corresponding drop in glucose level followed by a plunge in blood glucose below normal with a high insulin level remaining.
US experts suggest some people benefit less from exercise.
The author has coined the term "metabolic lockup" to describe a condition encountered by some avid runner and bikers. The body literally enters a period of metabolic fatigue. It locks up. The continuous onslaught of dietary carbohydrates with a deficit of healthy protein and fats simply fatigues the metabolic system of the body. The body refuses to convert the blood glucose to energy in the cells. The leg muscles refuse to function to the degree desired. The person can walk around and appear healthy, but heavy exertion is simply impossible. The leg muscles feel as if the strength has vanished. This condition does not occur for those on a low-carbohydrate diet who burn fats for energy.
Myth No. 4 - Running is Healthy Exercise.
Don't believe this myth. Running is not a healthy way to exercise for many reasons. Destruction of the knees, ankles, and feet by running has been solidly proven. The typical runner will develop knee problems within 20 years at best and within months for some individuals. Dr. David's wife in Myth No. 3 had knee damage caused by her running. She eventually had surgery and was forced to discontinue all running.
Around 40–50% of runners or joggers will be injured in any one-year period.
About a half to three quarters of these will be overuse injuries - directly related to the impact of repetitive stress on ligaments, tendons, joints, and the lower back.
The force running puts on your ankles is three to five times your body weight.
Female runners are especially prone to health damage. Women in their late teens or twenties are seen running along highways and in parks. The first noticeable health damage is to the hormone system. Many women who run find a complete cessation of their menstrual cycle. They also become temporarily infertile or if pregnant have a miscarriage as a result of hormonal imbalance. Young women with babies can be seen running behind the special baby strollers near highway traffic. They place their baby and themselves at great risk. Frankly, this is pure nonsense. Women should not be doing this sort of exercise. What are they thinking? Do they seriously believe that running will prevent heart disease when they are 60 or 70 years of age? The answer is, "No." Running will be discontinued long before 50 years of age because of damage done to the body.
A college student's mother writes.
"By the way, my daughter is much better… she’s stopped being a vegetarian (yay!), cut way back on the jogging, got her period back (after 8 months!) and her bowels seem better too… Thanks for all your encouragement."

Exercise will not eliminate the risk of cancer but will most likely increase the risk. Avoiding red meat and animal fats will not eliminate the risk of cancer. A vegetarian triathlon competitor sadly discovered this fact. Kathy participated in triathlon events even though she was 50 years of age. She developed a persistent cough that her doctor diagnosed as being caused by a post nasal drip. She was very concerned and visited another doctor when the cough became worse. Her chest x-ray revealed the dreaded news. Kathy had tumors in her lungs that proved to be cancerous. She had chemotherapy that seemed to place the cancer well into remission. The tumors shrank for a while but have come back. Kathy has had every new experimental cancer drug available. Nothing worked, and side effects were horrible. She had chemo a second time, although doctors rarely try it. It did not help her. Kathy didn't realize that excessive exercise literally wipes out the immune system. It is common knowledge that marathon runners easily get sick after a race because their immune systems are shot. A strong immune system is necessary to prevent cancer. She didn't realize that all immune system cells are made from amino acids as found in meat. She is a vegetarian. Kathy had an unprecedented third round of chemotherapy.
Her death is eminent.Kathy died in September, 2006.

Cancer - The Cause, Prevention, Treatment, Control, and Spontaneous Remission of Cancer of the Breast, Prostate, Lung, Colon, Liver, Pancreas, Brain, Bone, Lymph Gland, or Skin Melanoma
Melanoma Risk For White Marathon Runners - Medical News Today - November 21, 2006.
This story is more proof that excessive exercise depresses the immune system, leading to an increase risk of cancer.
Rigorous exercise raises the levels of free radicals in the body that leads to aging, cell damage, cancer, and other diseases. This type of exercise has the same effect as smoking a pack of cigarettes per day. Exercise in city and highway smog makes it even worse. Combining free radicals with a suppressed immune system and disease-causing hormones, cortisol and adrenaline, produces a cocktail that gives endurance racers cancer and heart disease.
Dietary supplements will not kill cancer cells. Wild claims made by salesmen of herbal products are simply not true. Herbs will not kill cancer cells. Chinese medicine will not kill cancer cells. Homeopathic products will not kill cancer cells. Acupuncture will not kill cancer cells. Magnetic therapy will not kill cancer cells. All of these treatments are a fraud.
The low-carbohydrate diet will prevent cancer. It will also slow and restrict cancer cell growth in existing cancers. It will also slow or kill fungal cells that grow in association with cancer cells. Normal body cells that are infested with a fungus are sometimes mistaken for cancer cells. Anti-fungal medicines should be taken in addition to the low-carbohydrate diet to kill the fungus.
High-fat Ketogenic Diet Shrinks Cancer Tumors.
The following study shows that a ketogenic diet with 80% fat eliminates cancer tumors, but a reintroduction of carbohydrates causes the tumors to grow again.
Metabolic management of glioblastoma multiforme using standard therapy together with a restricted ketogenic diet: Case Report - 22 April 2010 Nutrition & Metabolism 2010, 7:33doi:10.1186/1743-7075-7-33
“Management of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) has been difficult using standard therapy (radiation with temozolomide chemotherapy). The ketogenic diet is used commonly to treat refractory epilepsy in children and, when administered in restricted amounts, can also target energy metabolism in brain tumors. We report the case of a 65-year-old woman who presented with progressive memory loss, chronic headaches, nausea, and a right hemisphere multi-centric tumor seen with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Following incomplete surgical resection, the patient was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme expressing hypermethylation of the MGMT gene promoter.”
“Prior to initiation of the standard therapy, the patient conducted water-only therapeutic fasting and a restricted 4:1 (fat: carbohydrate + protein) ketogenic diet that delivered about 600 kcal/day. The patient also received the restricted ketogenic diet concomitantly during the standard treatment period. The diet was supplemented with vitamins and minerals. Steroid medication (dexamethasone) was removed during the course of the treatment. The patient was followed using MRI and positron emission tomography with fluoro-deoxy-glucose (FDG-PET).”
“After two months treatment, the patient's body weight was reduced by about 20% and no discernable brain tumor tissue was detected using either FDG-PET or MRI imaging. Biomarker changes showed reduced levels of blood glucose and elevated levels of urinary ketones. MRI evidence of tumor recurrence was found 10 weeks after suspension of strict diet therapy.”
“This is the first report of confirmed GBM treated with standard therapy together with a restricted ketogenic diet. As rapid regression of GBM is rare in older patients following incomplete surgical resection and standard therapy alone, the response observed in this case could result in part from the action of the calorie restricted ketogenic diet. Further studies are needed to evaluate the efficacy of restricted ketogenic diets, administered alone or together with standard treatment, as a therapy for GBM and possibly other malignant brain tumors.”
Life Extension - Free Radical Theory of Aging.
Free radical levels rise in the body during rigorous exercise and from exposure to pollutants, radiation, UV light, and smoking. During infection and chronic inflammation, massive amounts of nitric oxide and superoxide radicals form in immune cells to fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Made in excess, these oxidants can harm and combine to form other toxic chemicals that produces further damage in DNA and brain cells.
Daily Camera newspaper Boulder, Colorado May 31, 2005
There was no winner of the Bolder Boulder 10K race held yesterday. A search of the Daily Camera newspaper did not reveal who had won the race. A woman was shown as the winner in the Female's division, but the winner of the race was not listed. It must have been a man of course. There must surely have been a thousand men ahead of her. Instead, the newspaper chose to describe on the front page an interview with a 61 year old man who had been watching from the sidelines. He was an avid runner in previous years but was forced to sit out because of his open heart artery bypass surgery last fall. Obviously, running does not prevent the heart arteries from plugging up.
Luckily there were no sudden deaths during the race. However, the newspaper did describe the death of a rock climber and a bicyclist the same day. These activities don't appear to be healthy either.
If anyone knows who won the race, please send email to the mail box below with a photo copy of the story from the Daily Camera newspaper attached.
Famous Tour de France bike racer, Lance Armstrong, is another good example which proves that excessive exercise causes cancer. He developed testicular cancer, but luckily he appears to have survived the disease. In March, 2006, the announcement was made that Lance Armstrong's ex-mate, Sheryl Crow, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The big question remains. What diet and lifestyle philosophy were they both following that caused cancer in both of them? They certainly did not eat a 100% meat diet as the Eskimos did before the interference of white men because the Eskimos were absolutely free of all cancer.
Eskimos Prove An All Meat Diet Provides Excellent Health.
Bicyclists are especially hazardous to themselves and others by riding on roadways in traffic. They tend to ride as a herd as they cut in and out of traffic. Sometimes they ride several abreast and spill over from the shoulder of the road into the traffic lane beyond the bike lane. Others ride in the traffic lane where they block traffic because of their slow speed. They seem to have some sort of "chip on their shoulders" and intentionally become nuisances and safety hazards in violation of roadway laws. They are frequently seen running red lights and stop signs as well as making illegal turns. This activity is certainly not healthy. The worst offenders seem to be the ones dressed in professional riding clothes and acting like they are going to beat Lance Armstrong next year. They proliferate in college towns like Boulder, Colorado, where the police are very lenient in enforcing bicycle laws.
Risk Factors for Bicycle-Motor Vehicle Collisions
People with an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Sjogren's dry eye syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and several dozen other diseases should not jog, hike aggressively, run marathons, or participate in competitive endurance races. These kinds of activities will most certainly cause the participant to have a major autoimmune disease flare.

Many runners and bikers believe their low-fat, low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet produces the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body. This thought is total nonsense. In fact, the books that suggest eating meat causes the body to become excessively acidic are totally false. The body normally controls the pH (acid/alkaline balance) within very close limits. Excessive exercise is another matter. The depravity of oxygen during heavy exercise causes the body to swing to the acidic range (low pH) in an unhealthy manner. Hyperventilation (heavy breathing in the absence of corresponding exercise) causes the body to swing into the alkaline range (high pH). Both of these conditions are unhealthy. The high-carbohydrate diet typically eaten by vegetarians causes the stomach to produce acid at the wrong time. This causes acid reflux and the impression that they have an acid system. The low-carbohydrate diet with generous amounts of meat cures acid reflux disease within a few meals because the stomach naturally produces acid for the digestion of meat.
Myth No. 5 - Humans are Natural Born Runners.
A popular nutritional and health website suggests that humans are designed to run. This claim doesn't stand the test of detailed review. Certainly humans can run but it is nothing to brag about. Compared to many animals, humans are poor runners. Humans destroy their bodies by running.
As predators, humans are fairly inept at chasing down and capturing prey. Try chasing a deer sometime and see how successful you are. Deer are natural runners, not men. The deer can quickly run out of sight and disappear three hills away. A man is completely exhausted after running a few hundred yards up the first hill.
Humans must use their superior brain power in order to catch the prey because we are ineffective runners. We hunt in packs, stalk the prey to get closer, and use weapons to kill at a distance.
Myth No. 6 - Carbohydrates are Needed for Energy.
Oh, boy! This myth will never die. Athletes gulp down the high-carbohydrate food that they are told is necessary for energy, not knowing the dreadful damage they are doing to their bodies. Cells are literally being driven to exhaustion by the onslaught of excess fuel. This process is analogous to a top fuel dragster burning nitro methane that literally fries the engine during each race, or perhaps carbohydrates are a little more equal to a nitro-laced race gasoline used in lower racing classes. On the other hand, eating fat for energy is analogous to an eighteen-wheel truck burning diesel oil. The diesel oil does not burn out the engine. In fact, it gives extra upper cylinder lubrication and lower combustion temperatures for long life.
Carbohydrate molecules are too large to enter the bloodstream. They are digested into the individual glucose molecules that enter the blood. Body cells can use either fat or glucose for energy. Insulin is required when glucose is used as fuel but is not needed to burn fat. Insulin forces the glucose into the cells like a supercharger on a race car. The glucose and oxygen we breathe burn in the cells like a little engine. The combustion is less than 30 percent efficient in producing work (running) and the rest must be expended as heat (sweating with evaporative cooling). As the insulin increases because of a "carb-loading" pre-race diet, the dreadful hormones adrenaline and cortisol kick in to counteract the insulin. You can read more about adrenaline and cortisol below. This harmful combination is described by the author as the "Supercharger Cycle." The runner feels absolutely awesome in this hyped-up state - supercharged. You begin to feel like power-woman, iron-man, or mega-manager blasting through the airport.
Excess adrenaline causes these supercharger reactions:
Increased blood pressure.
Increased heart rate.
Contraction and constriction of the blood vessels.
Accelerated rate of respiration.
Dilated respiratory passageways.
Decreased rate of digestion.
Increased efficiency of muscular contractions.
Increased blood sugar level.
Stimulation of cellular metabolism.
Yikes! It is no wonder that the adrenaline rush is addictive. An insulin, adrenaline, and cortisol rush will save one's life when being chased by a lion, but it will eventually cause death when it occurs repeatedly day after day during exercise and running. Insulin packs glucose into the cells for energy, but it is also doing silent damage to the heart arteries. Insulin also packs small, dense LDL (low density lipoprotein) molecules into the walls of the heart arteries. These molecules are not consumed. The LDL causes an inflammation response, and the body goes about patching up the damage. The patch becomes an artery blockage and a future heart attack. This is the precise "Supercharger Cycle" that killed marathon runners' James F. Fixx and Brian Maxwell and gave the avid runner Dr. David heart disease. Dietary fats burn without stimulating insulin and do not cause heart disease.
Marathon runner Jeff Galloway describes in his running book, Galloway's Book on Running, how he tried carb-loading before a marathon. As a result he couldn't finish the race. He admits in the book that runners should burn fat for energy.
Adrenaline and cortisol are produced in the adrenal medulla. The adrenal gland gets tired of producing excessive levels of adrenaline and cortisol in the same manner as the pancreas when it gets tired of producing excessive amounts of insulin. Adrenal exhaustion does occur. When the adrenal gland collapses, so will you. One day the runner is full of power. A couple of months later he is weak, exhausted, and aches all over. The doctor says he has chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and/or fibromyalgia, and "nobody knows what causes it." Well, the doctor may not know what causes it, but the answer is easily understood. The same thing happens to the obese from an excess consumption of carbohydrates even though they may get very little exercise.
Tim Medvetz, a 240 pound ex-Hells Angel's motorcycle rider, successfully climbed Mount Everest on his second attempt. His awesome success was achieved in spite of breaking two bones in his hand on the day he summitted. He had wrapped one of the anchor ropes around his gloved right hand in order to have a more secure grip on the rope, but his foot slipped. He fell, but his waist harness was clipped to another anchor rope, preventing him from falling to his death. The rope looped around his hand tightened, snapping the two bones. He continued to the summit and returned using only one hand on the ropes and ladders. His achievement and determination was truly impressive.
Tim commented in the television documentary that he felt much stronger, healthier, and climbed easier when he ate the Sherpa's food, which was high-fat Yak meat, instead of the typical low-fat, low-protein, high-carbohydrate food used by United States expeditions. The Yak is a domesticated animal similar to a cow that is raised for meat and milk and used as a beast of burden.
Discovery Channel - Everest: Beyond the Limit.
Another pair of more successful climbers, David Tait and his Sherpa, Phurba Tashi, wanted to set a new world record by climbing over Mount Everest, descending on the other side, and returning in what is called a double traverse. He and his Sherpa made it over the top and down the other side, but David Tait gave up, saying he did not want to take the world record while Sherpa Phurba Tashi climbing next to him was obviously a much more superior and capable climber.
Another member of Tim Medvetz's exhibition, Betsy Huelskamp, was a female, vegetarian, professional trainer. She was trim and healthy looking. Tim was, well, noticeably overweight. She fell exhausted midway up the mountain and could not continue. She may have looked great in the exercise gym, but her weak, skinny, vegetarian body was a complete failure under the harsh endurance of climbing Mount Everest.
Carbohydrates are not needed for energy. The scientific and actual requirement for carbohydrates is ZERO. Athletes would be well advised to practice on a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet to maintain a healthy body and prevent insulin resistance of the cells. The harmful effects from adrenaline and cortisol do not occur. Sprint racers could then eat carbohydrates for maximum performance during the short contest because the cells have more insulin sensitivity. Marathon runners who "carb load" reach a point in the middle of the race where the muscles run out of stored glycogen (stored glucose). The legs suddenly run out of energy. Runners call this symptom hitting the wall. The legs switch to burning fat or triglycerides for energy after a period of weakness and recovery. This is especially true when a runner trains at shorter distances by carb loading, and the legs never learn to burn triglycerides easily. Long distance runners and mountain climbers should eat fat for energy.

Myth No. 7 - Runners Should Eat a Low-Fat Diet.
This myth seems so true, innocent, wonderfully healthy, and wholesome that most people swallow it without question, but it is the most deadly myth of all dietary dogma and lies. The fat phobia is the result of worldwide brainwashing. One does not have much choice but to increase carbohydrates in the diet to replace a reduction in fats, and therein lies the road to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and the entire medical book of autoimmune diseases. Carbohydrates are slow in their destruction of the body, but they eventually prove to be extremely deadly. The delay between the start of a high-carbohydrate diet and disease has been labeled as the "20 Year Rule."
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) conducted the Framingham Study over a period of 20 years starting in 1948. According to NHLBI Director Dr. Claude Lenfant, This study suggests that obesity is an important risk factor for heart failure in both women and men." The study found a small correlation between heart disease and elevated LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol. The Framingham study also found that those who ate the most saturated fat, the most calories, and the most cholesterol were the most physically active. They also weighed the least and had the lowest levels of serum cholesterol. The people who ate the most saturated fat were the most healthy and had the lowest risk of heart disease.

Myth No. 8 - Exercise Reverses Heart Disease.
No! Exercise does not reverse heart disease. People who have partially plugged heart arteries or have had an artery bypass operation are immediately placed on an exercise program. They are told the exercise will open the plugged arteries and prevent any new blockage. The poor patient believes this myth only to be harshly disappointed with new heart problems. The doctor insists the patient didn't exercise enough. It is not a coincidence that it is always the patient’s fault and never the fault of the advice given. When the patient has a heart attack and dies the answer is simple. He had heart disease. In actual practice, bypass arteries can become completely plugged again in only one year because of the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA).
Exercise will not reverse heart disease.
Exercising with a heart that has partially plugged arteries is a very high-risk activity that should not be done. Heart pain is a signal that muscle damage is taking place. The cells of the heart muscle are being deprived of oxygen. The result could be a sudden heart attack and death. It is theorized that marathon runner James F. Fixx was running with severe heart pain before he was stricken and died. Perhaps he thought he could "run through" the problem and cure his heart disease. Nobody knows for certain why he continued to run with plugged heart arteries, but it was certainly the wrong thing to do.
Myth No. 9 - Exercise Will Build Up the Body.
This assumption is false. Exercise tears down the body. The techniques used by bodybuilders will build up the body by first tearing down the tissues and then allowing them to heal and grow. Regular exercise does not do this. The phrase "no pain - no gain" does not apply to exercise. Pain is an indication that damage is being done to the body. Pain is not a healthy signal. Running through the pain is not a healthy practice.
Running can do great damage to the body. Sarah was a good example. She was addicted to running and racing in marathons. Exercise is addictive because it produces an adrenaline and cortisol rush. Runners typically comment about the wonderful feeling of euphoria they get from running. Runners are always ready for the next rush and get very depressed when the flu or a business trip prevents them from running. They can get so addicted to insulin, adrenaline, and cortisol that they insist on running under almost any condition. They run in dangerous traffic and sometimes get hit by cars, especially at night. They run on icy streets where they slip and fall on the ice. They are truly hormone addicts.
Sarah never won a marathon race, so the pressure was always on to do better. She could never celebrate in victory. She tried to improve her performance by reducing her weight. She avoided eating protein, especially red meat, because she thought she would get "bulked up" with extra muscle mass. Extra weight slows a runner. Muscular upper chest and arms will reduce performance in a runner. Instead of getting faster, she developed severe leg cramps and spasms that prevented her from finishing the race. Soon her leg spasms were so bad she couldn't walk normally. Sarah was addicted to the catabolic hormone rush. Her body was literally consuming itself.
The "carb loading" technique turns bikers and marathon runners into "skeletons" of moving skin, tendons, and bones as a result of the catabolic depletion of muscle mass. The bodies of bikers and marathon runners actually consume the muscles as an energy source. This is why professional bikers and marathon runners are exceedingly skinny. Read the proper diet and exercise program below that is anabolic (builds the body). It builds muscles, tendons, ligaments, and vertebrae discs to provide a strong, muscular, healthy body.
Adrenaline and cortisol are both powerful catabolic hormones. They break down the body to divert resources to the muscles for a "fight or flight" response. Adrenaline is destructive to the body in many ways. It shuts down digestion. This occurs when one performs an excessive amount of exercise. Exercise of this type is unhealthy.
Myth No. 10 - Red Meat Causes Kidney Damage and Cancer.
This statement is absolutely false even though it is the official position of the USDA Food Guide Pyramid. Protein, especially from red meat, is falsely targeted as causing heart disease, colon cancer, and kidney disease. These claims are myths, distortions, and lies. Processed deli meats are the problem, not fresh red meat.
Study Links Processed Meat to Cancer, not Unprocessed Red Meat.
Diabetes Solution - Chapter 9 by Dr. Richard K. Bernstein
"If you are a long-standing diabetic and are frustrated with the care you've received over the years, you have probably been conditioned to think that protein is more of a poison than sugar and is the cause of kidney disease. I was conditioned the same waymany years ago, as I mentioned, I had laboratory evidence of advanced proteinuria, signifying potentially fatal kidney diseasebut in this case, the conventional wisdom is just a myth."
"Non-diabetics who eat a lot of protein don't get diabetic kidney disease. Diabetics with normalized blood sugars don't get diabetic kidney disease. High levels of dietary protein do not cause kidney disease in diabetics or anyone else. There is no higher incidence of kidney disease in the cattle-growing states of the United States, where many people eat steak every day, than there is in the states where beef is more expensive and consumed to a much lesser degree. Similarly, the incidence of kidney disease in vegetarians is the same as the incidence of kidney disease in non-vegetarians. It is the high blood sugar levels that are unique to diabetes, and to a much lesser degree the high levels of insulin required to cover them (causing hypertension), that cause the complications associated with diabetes."
Actually, natural unprocessed fresh beef and other natural meats are used by the body to heal and prevent disease. The human immune system is composed of protein molecules made from meat. A diet high in meat will provide a robust immune system which prevents and cures diseases. Animal protein does not cause osteoporosis, reduce bone density, or cause kidney stones as claimed by many vegetarians and others who propagate lies.
High-Protein Diets: Separating Fact From Fiction
Stephen Byrnes, Ph.D., RNCP
"It is excessive carbohydrate intake, not protein or animal protein intake, that can result in heart disease and cancer (1). Readers should note that the type of diet Gilbert advocates in her article is a high-carbohydrate one because that is exactly what diets that are low in protein and fat are. Furthermore, the idea that animal products, specifically protein, cholesterol, and saturated fatty acids, somehow factor in causing atherosclerosis, stroke, and/or heart disease is a popular idea that is not supported by available data, including the field of lipid biochemistry (2)."
"The claim that animal protein intake causes calcium loss from the bones is another popular nutritional myth that has no backing in nutritional science. The studies that supposedly showed protein to cause calcium loss in the urine were NOT done with real, whole foods, but with isolated amino acids and fractionated protein powders (3). When studies were done with people eating meat with its fat, NO calcium loss was detected in the urine, even over a long period of time (3). Other studies have confirmed that meat eating does not affect calcium balance (4) and that protein promotes stronger bones (5). Furthermore, the saturated fats that Gilbert thinks are so evil are actually required for proper calcium deposition in the bones (6)."
"The reason why the amino acids and fat-free protein powders caused calcium loss while the meat/fat did not is because protein, calcium, and minerals, require the fat-soluble vitamins A and D for their assimilation and utilization by the body. When protein is consumed without these factors, it upsets the normal biochemistry of the body and mineral loss results (7). True vitamin A and full-complex vitamin D are only found in animal fats."
"If the protein-causes-osteoporosis theory teaches us anything, it is to avoid fractionated foods (like soy protein isolate, something Gilbert would no doubt encourage readers to consume given her zeal for soy) and isolated amino acids, and to eat meat with its fat. New evidence shows that men and women who ate the most animal protein had better bone mass compared to those who avoided it (8) and that vegan diets (most likely also advocated by Gilbert) place women at a greater risk for osteoporosis (9)."
"The claim that protein intake leads to kidney stones is another popular myth that is not supported by the facts. Although protein restricted diets are helpful for people who have kidney disease, eating meat does not cause kidney problems (10). Furthermore, the fat-soluble vitamins and saturated fatty acids found in animal foods are pivotal for properly functioning kidneys (11)."
Life Without Bread by Christian B. Allan, Ph.D. and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D.
This book shows how the connection between high carbohydrate consumption and cancer is becoming more evident.
"After carbohydrates are consumed, the levels of sugar and glucose in the blood rise. The body responds by releasing insulin from the pancreas into the bloodstream. The carbohydrate theory of cancer is simple:
"Too much insulin and glucose in the blood can cause cells to dedifferentiate, just as they do in cell lines, and thus can be a primary cause of dietary-related cancer." Pages 169-170.
"There have been many studies done, in animals and people, that indicate that fat content in the diet is not responsible for breast cancer or any other cancer. We know there's a tendency to blame dietary fat for just about everything that goes wrong, but that's just a lazy way out. Time after time, the studies show it just isn't true." Page 173.
"The Eskimos who ate only fat and protein never had any cancer in their population until a Western (high-carbohydrate) diet was introduced. Why don't we ever hear of cancer of the heart? Probably because the heart uses almost all fat for energy, thus cancer does not have a chance to develop in those cells. We hope that researchers will take the next step and start looking at what has been known for a long time. Dietary related cancer is a sugar metabolism disease just like all the others." Page 177.

High-protein Diet Found Beneficial.
A large study published by the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research shows both elderly men and women who consumed the most animal protein had the lowest rate of bone loss, while those who consumed the least amount of animal protein had the highest rate of bone loss. A study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that postmenopausal women who consumed the highest amount of animal protein had the strongest bones and the lowest percentage of hip fractures. People who ate diets lowest in meat required a longer time for healing of a bone fracture and had the slowest recovery time for illnesses in general. Eating meat improves healing and health.

Guidelines for Healthy Exercise.
The high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, and healthy exercise as presented on this site will preserve health and heal the body. Healthy exercise should be thought of as variety of everyday activities plus a few extra activities. Some of the activities should be demanding enough to increase the heart rate to 70 to 80 percent of maximum. The maximum heart rate is considered to be 220 minus your age. Healthy exercise is strongly suggested for overall cardiovascular health. One doesn't have to join a club and pay money to get a healthy level of exercise. A few suggested "Do's and Don'ts" are:
Activities to do:
Walk at a brisk pace for 30 to 45 minutes everyday with some uphill sections.
Hike hills and mountains but not to the point of exhaustion or an adrenaline rush.
Swimming and water skiing can provide excellent exercise.
Snow skiing can be healthy or extremely hazardous depending on risks taken.
Bike aggressively for 15 minutes where some of the terrain has uphill sections but not in traffic.
Get the heart rate up for 15 minutes but avoid excessive exhaustion.
Park at the far end of the parking lot and walk the extra distance.
Climb the stairs instead of taking an elevator.
Wash the car instead of taking through a drive-thru car wash.
Mow the lawn instead of paying someone else who gets the exercise instead of you.
Play sports like tennis, racquetball, volleyball, and basketball but not to exhaustion.
Exercise outside in fresh air rather than in the house, city smog, or near dirty traffic.
Eat a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet for healthy energy that doesn't damage the body in an insulin rush.
Activities to avoid:
Don't perform "extreme" sports. They are definitely not healthy.
Don't exercise to the point of addiction from the adrenaline rush.
Don't sit longer than one hour without some activity using the legs to avoid blood clots.
Don't pull up one leg under the other leg and sit on it.
Don't stand longer than one hour without some activity using the legs to avoid blood clots.
Don't eat carbohydrates for energy because they cause metabolic syndrome.
Don't burn candles, and avoid chemicals indoors because they pollute the air.
Don't use electrostatic air cleaners because they give off lung-damaging ozone.
Don't use electrostatic copy machines in a closed office with poor air circulation because they give off ozone.
These suggestions are more important as one grows older. Youthfulness provides resilience that is not available in older individuals.
Bodybuilders eat a high-protein diet and supplement the diet with additional protein powder in order to build body mass, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. This practice has been proven to be correct over several decades of testing and refinement in the diets of millions of bodybuilders. The science behind the high-protein diet confirms the results found in actual practice.
Ketogenic, Low-Carbohydrate Diet for Bodybuilders.
TNT DIET - Targeted Nutrition Tactics
by Jeff Volek, Ph.D., RD and Adam Campbell, Men's Health Magazine
The explosive new plan to blast fat, build muscle, and get healthy.
The TNT Diet is a great book for bodybuilders and everyone else who wants to preserve and build lean muscle while controlling body fat. This book is a must read for anyone on the low-carbohydrate diet.
Diet and Exercise Step No. 1 - Eat the ultra low-carbohydrate diet to control weight and before doing the intense exercise program in Step No. 2 below. Most exercise books recommend a high-carb diet before the exercise in order to fuel the muscles. This is backwards for controlling body fat and building lean muscle as discussed in the TNT Diet book listed above. Meat provides the full compliment of all essential and non-essential amino acids needed to heal the neck and back without adding undesirable carbohydrates to the diet. Vegetarian foods such as whole grains, soy, and legumes do not fulfill these requirements and are unacceptable substitutes. Fats are a good choice in Step No. 1 where carbohydrates are kept low.
Diet and Exercise Step No. 2 - Perform a high-intensity exercise program such as weight lifting, biking, or climbing stairs. Do this program for 15 minutes only. Longer programs are bad because they elevate catabolic hormones, adrenaline, and cortisol which break down the body. Jogging is a poor choice. Concentrate on the legs because these muscles are so much larger than other muscles of the body. This program is intended to quickly burn the glycogen (muscle glucose storage) out of the muscles. The muscles should suddenly become weak as the glycogen has been expended. Keep going for the full 15 minutes. The muscles will switch to burning fat for energy. Perform the high-intensity exercise program five to seven times per week.
Weight lift with periods of intense effort and rest (called reps). Concentrate on the legs but use other body muscles as well.
Bike on a circular course with medium uphill sections followed by downhill for resting. This functions like reps as well.
Hike stairs in a circular fashion with two levels up followed by two down for resting. This functions like reps as well.
Diet and Exercise Step No. 3 - Follow the exercise program with a high-protein snack and some carbohydrates. You can also prepare a protein and L-glutamine drink as described below to supplement a snack of meat or fish. Take about 50 to 100 calories of carbohydrates to stimulate an insulin rush. The insulin is anabolic (builds the body). The insulin stimulates the body to use the amino acids to build muscle, tendons, ligaments, vertebrae discs, etc. Carbohydrates generally are not recommended on this website, but they are recommended for this special method of bodybuilding. Avoid milk, grains, and legumes. Acceptable carbohydrates are:
Potatoes, sweet potatoes, or yams.
Fried pork skins with a little honey.
Ice cream, although the fat is less desirable in this step.
Fruit can be added to the whey protein powder shake listed below.
Scientific Facts Behind This Body Rebuilding Program
The low-carb diet in Step No. 1 causes the body to deplete the stores of glucose in the liver and to deplete the stores of carbohydrates in the digestive tract. This is the opposite of the "carb loading" technique that turns bikers and marathon runners into "skeletons" of moving skin, tendons, and bones as a result of the catabolic depletion of muscle mass. The bodies of bikers and marathon runners actually consume the muscles as an energy source. This is why professional bikers and marathon runners are exceedingly skinny. This program does the opposite. It builds muscles, tendons, ligaments, and vertebrae discs to provide a strong, healthy body.
The exercise in Step No. 2 further depletes the glycogen (glucose) in the muscles. It also sets the muscles into a rebuilding mode because of the work done on the muscle cells. This work must be short but strenuous as typically done by bodybuilders, not runners.
The high-protein, low-fat diet in Step No. 3 has a moderate carbohydrate intake to promote a modest insulin rush. The insulin promotes anabolic rebuilding of the body. The glucose produced from the digestion of the carbohydrates is used to restore the depleted stores of glucose in the liver and to restore the glycogen in the muscles. These empty glucose stores prevent the dietary carbohydrates from being converted to body fat. Therefore, the program promotes rebuilding of the body without gaining body fat.
Bodybuilders typically eat a lot of meat as a high-quality protein source. They also supplement the diet with protein powder drinks and shakes. Whey protein powder contains all of the essential and non-essential amino acids necessary to build a healthy neck and spine. The product listed below is made from the whey protein of cows' milk. All of the lactose (milk sugar) has been stripped from the product during manufacture. It is pre-digested using special healthy bacteria to breakdown the protein molecules into the individual amino acids and branched-chain amino acids. The amino acids can pass through the intestinal-blood barrier in the human intestinal tract to quickly become available for healing the body and building bone collagen, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Extra L-glutamine (glutamine) amino acid is also recommended.
Protein and L-Glutamine Drink. Prepare a drink made with whey amino acid protein powder which is enriched with extra glutamine amino acid. The protein powder consists of a full compliment of amino acid isolates that heal the body and require no digestion. Prepare the drink by blending 8 to 16 oz of reverse osmosis with UV lamp water or unsweetened, low-sodium tomato juice with 1 heaping teaspoon (12 gm) of whey protein powder plus 1 rounded teaspoon (8 gm) of glutamine amino acid powder. Stirring vigorously with the teaspoon is sufficient. The whey protein must be specified on the carton as isolates from cross flow microfiltration and ion-exchange, ultrafiltered concentrate, low molecular weight, and partially hydrolyzed whey protein peptides rich in branched chain amino acids and glutamine peptides. The low-carbohydrate type at 1 gm per scoop or less is best, but it should not be more than 4-5 gm of carbohydrates per scoop. Do not substitute protein from soy, egg, casein, or any other source. Sugar or any other sweetener is unacceptable. Use the "natural flavor" without additives. This amino acid drink can be enjoyed anytime with or without a meal. Amino acids are foods that build and maintain the body. Refrigerate whey protein powder and discard if it is old. Whey protein powder can cause some gas and an unusually "full" feeling.

Amino Acids - The Building Blocks of Life and Healing.
This combination of amino acids has been shown to provide the following healing properties:
Provides pain killing effects by healing the nervous system.
Absorption of body building amino acids without requiring digestion.
Stimulates insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) which functions similarly to insulin and enhances protein synthesis and healing.
Fights infections by stimulating the immune system. All immune cells are made from poly-peptides of amino acids.
Provides bone growth of protein collagen and strengthens bones. Poor digestion has been shown to cause osteoporosis and degenerative bone disease.
Provides all of the amino acids required to heal and grow ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, intestinal tract, heart muscle, and all other organs of the body.
Prevents hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) symptoms in people with hypoglycemia or diabetes.
The three most nutritionally important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic fatty acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic fatty acid (DHA). Alpha-linolenic fatty acid is one of two fatty acids traditionally classified as "essential." The other fatty acid traditionally viewed as essential is an omega-6 fat called linoleic acid. These fatty acids have traditionally been classified as “essential” because the body is unable to manufacture them on its own and because they play a fundamental role in several physiological functions. As a result, we must be sure our diet contains sufficient amounts of both alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid.

Three Climbers Die During an Ego Trip on Mount Hood, Oregon - December 12, 2006.
We know that many people die unnecessarily in Marathon races each year, and many body builders die in their 50's from heart disease as a result of taking steroids in their quest for recognition and fame, but few people realize these sports are not about health. The participants suffer from mega-egocentrism mental illness.
"Encouraged by improved weather, but worried about more storms on the way, rescuers started back up the treacherous flanks of 11,239-foot Mount Hood this morning in search of three climbers missing since the weekend, the Associated Press reports. Most rescuers were brought off the mountain Monday afternoon because of ugly weather. Rescuers headed back up Mt. Hood to search for climbers."
The three climbers Kelly James, 48, and Brian Hall, 37, both of Dallas, Texas; and Jerry "Nikko" Cooke, 36, of Brooklyn, N.Y. are dead. Well, officially they are not declared dead yet because their bodies have not been found. But now the contest is to guess how many people will die on Mount Hood this week including the three climbers plus a few rescuers. Rescuers have died in Mount Hood in past years trying rescue 20 to 25 people per year who end up stranded or dead on the mountain. The United States Forest Service should put up a sign stating, "Climb at your own risk. Make arrangements for your private rescue before climbing."
These men were supposed to be professional mountaineers practicing for a future attempt to scale Mount Everest, but they were unprepared, absent minded, and extremely negligent. If they hadn't diet on Mount Hood they certainly would have joined the hundreds of bodies still frozen in the snow on Mount Everest.
The rescuers are on an ego trip of their own. What better ego trip than to rescue a professional mountaineer? Cool trip to brag about, huh? These rescuers don't risk their own lives to save others. They risk their lives just like the first three climbers did, to advance their mega-egocentrism. They can't resist. Some call them crazy. That is not far off the mark, really.
Hunters in Colorado pay a "rescue fee" with the purchase of each hunting license to cover the cost of the rare rescue that may occur. The hunters use the proper approach. The "extreme sport" nuts get a free trip and a free rescue. Something is seriously wrong here. When a person wrecks his car or trips on the sidewalk in Portland and breaks his leg, the rescue ambulance will send him the bill even when the ambulance is a part of the government entity. But when the same person hikes Mount Hood, trips, and breaks his leg, the rescue is free. The calls for "help" will bring the immediate dispatch of a United States Air Force helicopter with masses of state and federal employees and equipment for a free rescue. The estates of the three dead Mount Hood hikers should be billed for the attempted rescue costs.
Update 12/16/06 - First, if the men were safe and sound in snow caves with adequate supplies as proclaimed by the "experts," they should have hiked out yesterday on their own. They were not seen, proving the experts have been wrong. The three men have not been seen since December 7th, 10 days ago. Yesterday, December 16, the rescue team got a somewhat clear day. Unfortunately, they decided to set out on the south side of the mountain, climb over the summit, and down the north side where Kelly James radioed his intension to take cover in a snow cave while the two other men hiked down for help. This doesn't make any sense. The goal here should have been to rescue the men, not an ego trip to "summit" first. The rescue report team scrambled to cover up this fact by saying they were also searching the north side of the Mount Hood. The rescuers won't stay on the mountain overnight but expect us to believe the three hikers are still alive after 10 days.
The analysis of this tragedy shows the cumulative effect of the many errors made by the hikers. Airplane crashes are investigated and analyzed in hopes of preventing similar catastrophes. Extreme sports advocates seem to prefer denial, excuse, or false reporting to explain the misfortune, thereby denying others of the benefits of learning from the past mistakes.
They did not have adequate supplies and equipment, contrary to "experts" who claim their supply list was "well equipped." This is an example of denial and cover-up explained above. The men left a note stating they were traveling "light."
They did not check the weather reports or simply ignored them. Extreme sports enthusiasts typically have an attitude of being invincible. The worldwide satellite pictures available makes this a serious mistake that is easily avoidable.
They hiked up the north side of Mount Hood which is the most difficult. Taking the most difficult route shows this was an ego trip.
They failed to turn back as the weather deteriorated. Forging ahead into increasingly worse weather is another sign of an attitude of invincibility.
James Kelly hiked until exhausted according to his cell phone call to relatives. He most likely tried to keep up with the younger, stronger partners. Psychology appears to have driven this expedition from the beginning, not sound logic.
Brian Hall and Jerry "Nikko" Cooke most likely tried to return via Elliott Glacier they used going up the mountain. The snow and extremely high winds made the glacier a death trap with avalanches. The location of the bodies when found will confirm this assumption.
Update 12/17/06 - Assault and rescue is underway with the appearance of United States Air Force Reserve military and Oregon National Guard providing two Apache Black Hawk assault helicopters, one CH-47 Chinook heavy lift helicopter with paratroopers, and one C-130 cargo plane modified with special thermal imaging equipment as 100,000 gallons of aviation fuel goes up in smoke. About a dozen rescuers have been lifted to the summit in mass. The rescuers gave a report, "We have good news. An ice axe and rope have been found." Oh, really. Is that really "good news?" The ice axe and rope would be the last things most mountaineers would give up. No, this is very bad news. Reality is being suppressed by the rescuers and reporters.
Mass Media Cover-up - The three hikers were not alone on the mountain. They met and talked with other hikers at the mid-level Cooper Spur Shelter at about 7,500 foot elevation. These eyewitnesses have not been brought before the cameras to provide an eyewitness account of the meeting. The mass media are not asking these witnesses the obvious questions. What were the lost hikers wearing? Were they really prepared as claimed? Did the witnesses advise the lost hikers to turn back? Did the witness tell the lost hikers they were crazy to continue up the mountain? Any realistic analysis and all negative evidence has been suppressed by the mass media.
Update 12/18/06 - Reality popped out of the snow on Mount Hood later yesterday afternoon to the shock of the rescuers, hikers' families, mountaineering experts, and mass media. The frozen, dead body of Kelly James was found in his snow cave. One TV reporter after ten days of reporting finally interviewed a doctor who presented the truth. Without fuel for melting snow for drinking water, death would come in three to four days from either dehydration or hypothermia or both. His report was certainly a refreshing break from 10 days of brainwashing.

Closing Comment to the Families - Please don't try to have a monument erected on public property at Mount Hood to commemorate the loss of your loved ones, and don't ask others to pay for it. You have wasted too much public money already on this irresponsible expedition and failed rescue.
"Mountain Madness" - Eminent U.S. climbing couple missing in China - December 26, 2006.
BEIJING — On Nov. 9, this message was inscribed in the visitors book of a restaurant in the remote southern Chinese village of Litang: "Great food and people…. The mountains around Yading are awesome. Countryside reminds us of home. We'll be back. — Chris Boskoff and Charlie Fowler, Norwood, Colorado, US.""
"Those are the last words that two of America's most prominent mountain climbers are known to have written."
"Boskoff and Fowler are well known among avid climbers. Climbing magazine has described Fowler, 52, as "long revered as one of the world's leading climbers." Boskoff, 39, who runs a Seattle-based expedition company, Mountain Madness, has climbed "more high-altitude summits than any other woman in the world," the magazine said. Those included Mt. Everest, Mont Blanc, Ama Dablam and Lhotse."

Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes
This is a must read book. Gary Taubes is an award- winning scientist who has specialized in exposing misleading, incorrect, or fraudulent science. His seven- year research in every science connected with the impact of nutrition on health shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates are better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet with more and more people acting on the advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes.
Taubes argues persuasively that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates (white flour, sugar, easily digested starches) via their dramatic effect on insulin -- the hormone that regulates fat accumulation -- and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. There are good and bad calories. Taubes traces how the common assumption that carbohydrates are fattening was abandoned in the 1960s when fat and cholesterol were blamed for heart disease and then -- wrongly -- were seen as the causes of a host of other maladies, including cancer. He shows us how these unproven hypotheses were emphatically embraced by authorities in nutrition, public health, and clinical medicine in spite of how well-conceived clinical trials have consistently refuted them. He also documents the dietary trials of carbohydrate-restriction which consistently show that the fewer carbohydrates we consume the leaner we will be.
With precise references to the most significant existing clinical studies, he convinces us that there is no compelling scientific evidence demonstrating that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease; that salt causes high blood pressure; and that fiber is a necessary part of a healthy diet. Based on the evidence that does exist, he leads us to conclude that the only healthy way to lose weight and remain lean is to eat fewer carbohydrates or to change the type of carbohydrates we do eat and, for some of us, perhaps to eat virtually none at all.
