The History of the Dietary Fiber Theory

The reason most doctors, nutritionists, the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, and the official USFDA Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)  recommend a high-fiber diet is based on the faulty logic of Dr. Dennis Burkitt, a British surgeon working in Africa more than half a century ago. Dr. Burkitt's theory that barley bread prevented inflammatory bowel diseases has led to the current dietary fiber theory. Dr. Burkitt's fiber theory was developed in the late 1960's and was based on a impromptu hunch that fiber in the diet accounted for the difference in digestion system health between his African patients and white Englishmen living in Africa and England. His opinion was not based on any scientific studies. He did not perform controlled tests. He did not isolate the groups with only fiber as the variable. His assumption that fiber in the diet made his African patients healthier was wrong.

The reason Dr. Burkitt concentrated on fiber instead of the many other nutritional differences is unknown. He was familiar with the intestinal problems in the peasants and common people of England in that day. The white Englishmen living in Africa ate the same imported refined foods as their own countrymen in England. The many obvious differences in a comparison of the two diets are the true reasons for the better health of the Africans.

The Africans were simply showing the benefits of eating a relatively low-carbohydrate diet consisting of fresh meats with animal fats and a few vegetables instead of the English diet that was high in carbohydrates like sugar, flour, cereals, honey, syrup, soft drinks, and potatoes. The African barley bread was a very small part of their diet. Vegetarians have lied about the true diet of the Africans who were large meat eaters, not vegetarians. The Africans raised domestic cattle, sheep, goats, and hunted and eat an abundance of wild animals. Fresh meat was very plentiful to the Africans and they consumed it in great quantities. In addition, the Africans consumed all of the fat from the animal because it was considered to be the best part of the animal. The English people tended to cut off and discard the animal fat. The English also ate very little meat. The meat the English did eat tended to be processed and heavily salted. The diet of the Englishmen was protein deficient, but the diet of the African was rich in protein and fat from eating fresh animal meat. The protein deficiency and high-carbohydrate diet of the English are the primary causes for intestinal diseases and colon cancer observed by Dr. Burkitt.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, IBD, IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Candida, and Others.

Why was Dr. Burkitt's "fiber theory" immediately accepted by the medical and nutritional professionals while overwhelming evidence against it was ignored? The reason is intuitively obvious. Meat has no fiber. Vegetarians will promote any and every lie possible in hopes you will stop eating animals. The dietary fiber theory is religion based.

Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS, visited the African Masai tribe in 1935 because they were noted for having excellent health. The average male stood well over 6 feet tall (183 cm) with perfect teeth, strong bones, and no intestinal diseases. The tall women gave birth easily to healthy robust babies. The Masai lived entirely off of their cattle. They herded cows, drank their blood and milk, and ate the meat with all of the fat. The Masai refused to eat grains or grass seeds, claiming the grains and seeds were cow food not suitable as food for humans. The amount of fiber in the diet of the Masai was zero, absolutely none. The milk, blood, meat, and fat eaten by the Masai have no fiber. The Masai have proven that fiber is not a dietary requirement for perfect digestion and cancer free colon health. According to Dr. Burkett’s fiber theory the Masai should have had an epidemic of intestinal diseases and colon cancer. They had none. Dr. Burkett’s fiber theory is pure nonsense.

Dietary fiber is not required in order to have perfect intestinal regularity. Fiber actually encourages pathogenic bacteria in the colon. The toxic byproducts produced by the pathogenic bacteria are one of the principal causes of inflammatory bowel disease. Fiber does not prevent or cure inflammatory bowel diseases but actually makes them worse. Studies of many other primitive societies have proven low-fiber diets prevent intestinal diseases and cancer as proven by Weston A. Price, DDS in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration and Arctic explorers Vilhjalmur Stefansson and Karsten Anderson during many years of living with the Eskimos.
High-fibre diets do not prevent growths which can develop into bowel cancer tumours, say researchers - April 20, 2000.
Eskimos Prove An All Meat Diet Provides Excellent Health.
Anthropological Research Reveals Optimal Human Diet by H. Leon Abrams, Jr.

The Arctic Eskimos ate an all-meat diet with zero fiber, yet they had very healthy digestive systems with no cancer of any kind in the entire population. The digestive health of the Eskimos was much better than that of Dr. Burkitt's African patients who ate the higher fiber barley bread diet.

For centuries the North American Plains Indians ate a diet that was very low in fiber. The low-fiber diet provided excellent health. They did not suffer from inflammatory bowel diseases or cancer. Their primary food was buffalo meat with the fat, both of which have zero fiber. They also ate pemmican which was a mixture of dried buffalo meat crushed and shredded before being mixed 50/50 with melted buffalo fat. The fat content was about 70% on a calorie basis. Dried berries were sometimes added but this was a small part of the caloric intake. The pemmican would keep for years without refrigeration and provided complete nourishment. The Hudson Bay Company and North West Company (fur traders) purchased pemmican from the Indians by the ton and even had a specification whereby they would pay a higher price for premium pemmican made with bone marrow fat. The Indians and European explorers to North America also preferred the buffalo tongue for consumption after a kill, due to its high fat content.

The reason vegetarians promote the fiber theory is because meat does not contain fiber. But why do medical professionals and pharmaceutical companies promote the fiber theory in light of overwhelming scientific evidence against dietary fiber? Why do gastroenterologists promote the high-fiber, low-fat diet that does not relieve patients of their dreadful symptoms? Why must patients remain under their care for 30 or 40 years with digestion problems, constipation, diarrhea, bleeding colon ulcers, Diverticulosis in the colon, fissures of the anus, and an annual colonoscopy? The harsh immunosuppressant drugs control the autoimmune diseases somewhat, but the patients suffer year after year as the diseases get worse and worse. The side effects from the drugs cause degenerative disc disease, osteoporosis, and allow other diseases to flourish because the immune system is depressed. Could it be because  their patients remain under their care for 30 or 40 years? Eventually the patient dies in old age of colon cancer. They also suffer the horrible experience of colon removal and the installation of an external fecal collection bag. This treatment is considered by the medical community to be successful. Read testimonies on the following web page from people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease who have switched to an ultra low-fiber, high-fat diet that is opposite to the one recommended by their gastroenterologist.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, IBD, IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Candida, and Others.

The professional dietary and medical advice given by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has been an utter failure. The USDA has published the official diet in the form of an icon called the USDA Food Guide Pyramid. The USFDA has published the official USFDA Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for carbohydrate, protein, and fat. However, therein lies a big flaw. Neither the Food Guide Pyramid nor the RDA is based on scientific facts. If you follow the Food Guide Pyramid as your daily nutritional guide, you will encounter many related degenerative diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, bowel disease, autoimmune diseases, and many more. The USDA Food Guide Pyramid and FDA Recommended Daily Allowance are solely responsible for the current high incidence of adult onset Type II diabetes which has tripled in the last 30 years. Type II diabetes is becoming common among teenagers, who were once thought to be excluded from this "age related" disease. People with diabetes have a significantly increased risk of cancer. Now the USDA has the gall to tell us it was our fault for not exercising enough. They were wrong then, and they are wrong now. Exercise will not prevent the escalating health care crisis.

The new 2005 USDA Food Guide Pyramid adds more confusion by having many different pyramids from which you must make a selection. This system will cause the current obesity, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease epidemics that were caused by the previous Food Guide Pyramid to become more severe.

Top Ten Nutritional Myths, Distortions, and Lies That Will Destroy Your Health.

Top Ten Historical Events That Created Our Current Health and Nutritional Quagmires.

Dietary Fiber Does Not Relieve Constipation

Medical schools teach that fiber in the colon absorbs water to form a soft stool that relieves constipation. This part of the fiber theory is repeated over and over by medical schools, fiber supplement salesmen, and gastroenterologists. This theory is so widespread and widely accepted by the medical community that they never bother to test it. The manufacturers of fiber supplements are certainly not going to test the fiber theory.

There is one big problem with the theory that a high-fiber diet relieves or cures constipation. Most people who suffer with chronic constipation say the extra fiber doesn't help. I fact, most people on Internet message boards and forums claim the high-fiber diet and fiber supplements make their constipation worse. The manufacturers of fiber supplements reluctantly admit this happens. Patients of dieticians and gastroenterologists often admit that the high-fiber foods increase constipation or fail to help in any way. The following statements are typically made by people who promote the high-fiber diet to relieve constipation or diarrhea, but they often warn that the high-fiber foods can make these conditions worse. This is strange logic.

The fiber theory is wrong. Constipation is not caused by not having enough fiber in the diet. Constipation is caused by the body drawing water out of the colon. Don't ask your gastroenterologist about this. He was never taught it in medical school.

The colon will draw water out of the stool in an attempt to stop fermentation of the fiber and carbohydrates by the pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. Eating a high-fiber diet and taking fiber supplements does not work because it simply promotes continual fermentation. The colon becomes a hazardous waste dump. Constipation tends to slow down the reaction. It is no surprise that some people don't tolerate fibrous foods well. That should be the expectation since high-fiber foods are always high-carbohydrate foods as well.

The Dietary Fiber Theory is pure conjecture.
It is not scientifically true.

Medical schools and the professional medical societies in the United States are too large, interdependent, and cumbersome to ever change. A large study on dietary fiber would simply be ignored as other studies have been. This is the reason patients are turning to alternative medicine in droves.

Dietary Fiber does not Relieve Diarrhea

Many people tolerate constipation for years or even decades. They simply take a laxative, drink prune juice, take a laxative herb, or use some other temporary measure to gain relief, but the game is over when the constipation turns to chronic diarrhea that never stops. Some people are forced to use the bathroom 20 times a day and numerous times during the night. The urge to go never subsides between emergency dashes to use the toilet.

Many people go shopping, go to work, and lead a near normal life with chronic constipation. The same is not true with chronic diarrhea. People on Internet message boards and forums frequently report the highly embarrassing accident of messing their pants in the car on the way to work or half way in their dash to the bathroom. Adult size diapers are the only solution they know of.

Medical schools teach that fiber in the colon absorbs water to form a soft stool that relieves diarrhea. They claim that fiber is the miracle cure-all for diarrhea, constipation, and other gastrointestinal tract problems. This part of the fiber theory is repeated over and over by medical schools, fiber supplement salesmen, and gastroenterologists. They claim dietary fiber cures constipation and diarrhea but in fact it does neither.

There is one big problem with the theory that a high-fiber diet relieves or cures diarrhea. Most people who suffer with chronic diarrhea say the extra fiber doesn't help. I fact, most people on Internet message boards and forums claim the high-fiber diet and fiber supplements make their diarrhea worse. The manufacturers of fiber supplements reluctantly admit this happens. Patients of dieticians and gastroenterologists often admit that the high-fiber foods increase diarrhea or fail to help in any way. The following web page promotes the high-fiber diet as a recommendation to relieve diarrhea but warns that the high-fiber foods can make it worse. This is strange logic.

High Fiber Diet

The body takes the opposite approach when drawing water out of the colon doesn't stop the fermentation of fiber and carbohydrates by pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. FLUSH time! The body simply floods the colon with water in order to rid itself of the problem. The body doesn't care whether you are stuck in traffic, in a board meeting, or speaking before a group. When colon flush comes, you go. Taking more fiber supplements does not work to stop chronic diarrhea. Eating high-fiber, high-carbohydrate foods does not work either.

My diet program provides perfect nutrition and deprives the pathogenic bacteria and yeast in the colon of their favorite foods, fiber and carbohydrates. My diet program eliminates those foods that trigger an autoimmune disease flare. Consequently, the colon settles down without constipation or diarrhea. The offensive flatulence is eliminated because digestive gasses are produced by the bacteria and yeast. You can read the entire diet requirement in detail on the following web page.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, IBD, IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Candida, and Others.

Perfect Poop

The ultra low-fiber, low-carbohydrate, high-fat, high-protein diet suppresses the pathogenic bacteria and yeast in the colon to give perfect bowel movements. The stool is firm but soft, and passes easily. The urge to go is slight, and waiting for a convenient time is very easy. The claim that a person should have one or more bowel movements each day is a myth. Skipping a day is normal and does not cause a plugged feeling. Straining is not required to have a normal bowel movement.

The stool is a perfect gauge of digestive health. Perfect poop produced by proper digestion will be medium brown in color and sink in the bowl. The stool will retain shape and not disintegrate into fragments. The volume could be considerable and medium diameter. "Pencil poop" indicates the colon is constricted from inflammation. Perfect poop will leave relatively clear, not cloudy, water in the toilet bowl. There will be very little or no odor, certainly not causing an offensively smelly bathroom. Flatulence (intestinal gas) during the day will be infrequent with very little or no odor. Fiber and carbohydrates in the diet cause excessive, smelly flatulence because of bacterial fermentation in the colon and in the lower part of the small intestines. A floating stool indicates the improper digestion of fats, but this is not an unhealthy condition. Undigested fats in the stool do not cause any problems whatsoever. Take a lipase enzyme for this condition. Pancreatic enzymes can also cause more gas to be entrained in the stool causing it to float. This is not a problem. Red color in the stool indicates blood is being released near the end of the colon or rectum. Black color indicates a blood release further up in the digestive tract or stomach. Yellow could be undigested fat. Green is excess bile acids or a short travel time. The normal color is brown to dark brown as everyone knows. The diet program in the IBD chapter below will produce proper digestion and will relieve constipation and diarrhea.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, IBD, IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Candida & Others.

Fecal Transit Time Nonsense

Most professional gastroenterologists and other proponents of the high-fiber diet claim that fecal matter is a highly toxic waste that will cause cancer, diverticulitis, and ulcerative colitis if the transit time in the colon is not rapid. They refer to the fecal matter as a hazardous waste that will kill you if you don't have several bowel movements each day. They insist that you eat a high-fiber diet in order to increase the bulk of the stool and the fecal transit time. This theory is pure nonsense. In fact, it is backwards.

Fecal matter is always in the colon and in contact with the lining. A fast transit time does nothing to reduce this contact as many people falsely believe. As an example, your hand will hurt if you slowly pour hot water over it. Pouring the water fast will not make the hot water any less painful. In fact, the fast flowing water will hurt worse. The same is true of the colon. If fecal matter were truly toxic, the fast movement does not make it any less toxic, and it does not reduce the exposure. The contact is always present, 100% of the time.

Eating high-fiber foods and taking fiber supplements is very hazardous to your digestive health. Taking laxatives to increase the fecal transit time is even worse. The current epidemic of inflammatory bowel diseases is directly related to the increase in dietary carbohydrates, fiber, and fiber supplements. The high-fiber theory is being promoted everywhere you turn, and it is slowly killing people.

A low transit time is healthier. A low transit time allows all of the food to be digested in the small intestine. Undigested food in the colon causes a proliferation of pathogenic bacteria that is the true cause of diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis. A fast transit time causes many diseases because of the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungus, protozoa, and parasites in the colon. A fast transit time turns the colon into a toxic fermentation tank. This is neither normal nor healthy for humans. Cows have a digestive system based on fermentation. Humans do not.

The low-carbohydrate, low-fiber diet presented here promotes optimum digestion with a slow transit time, very little flatulence, and a soft, firm stool. Skipping several days without a bowel movement is perfectly normal and healthy.

Dietary Fiber Causes Bowel Diseases and Cancer

Glucose (sugar) molecules attach together in long chains called carbohydrates. The body breaks down the chains in the small intestine during digestion for absorption of the glucose into the blood. Dietary fiber consists of tightly bound carbohydrate chains. These large fiber molecules cannot be broken by the body during digestion because we do not have the enzymes necessary to do so.

Fiber typically passes through the small intestines intact. Most doctors and nutritionists believe the fiber continues unbroken through the colon to pass out of the body in the stool. This assumption is false. The bacteria and yeast in the colon easily break down the fiber. Fiber becomes the major food source for these pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. Dietary fiber may not be digestible by the healthy individual, but it certainly is digestible by pathogenic gut bacteria and yeasts. These bacteria and yeasts ferment the fiber to produce alcohol, acetaldehyde, lactic acid, acetic acid, and a host of other toxic chemicals. Intestinal gas is a sure sign fiber and/or sugars are being fermented. The bacteria turn the fiber into acids and toxic chemicals that damage the lining of the colon, causing leaky gut syndrome, lead to inflammatory bowel diseases, and a host of other autoimmune diseases. Yeast feeds on the fiber causing a systemic yeast infection.

Almost all the digestion and absorption of nutrients occurs in the small intestine. Its long length alone provides a large surface area for digestion and absorption, and that area is further increased by mucosa villi on the surface of the interior intestinal wall. The mucosa (inside surface) and the submucosa allow the small intestine to complete the process of digestion and absorption. The mucosa forms a series of villi or small projections only 0.5 to 1.0 mm high and gives the intestinal mucosa a velvety appearance. The villi are the primary structure responsible for the digestion and absorption of food. These villi become damaged from a diet of excessive carbohydrates and the deficiency in proteins and fats. A protein deficiency may be the key because the villi have a short life and are continually being replaced. This replacement may be prevented when one or more of the essential amino acids are missing from the diet. Digestion of the carbohydrates in the small intestine can then become incomplete, and undigested carbohydrates pass to the colon where they do not belong. This presence of carbohydrates in the colon encourages the growth of pathogenic bacteria (disease causing bacteria such as Clostridium Difficile) and pathogenic fungi which are opportunistic. There are several possible therapeutic alternatives for treating Clostridium Difficile. The healthy gut bacteria can become overpowered and destroyed by the bad bacteria and/or candida yeast infections. Treatment of the bacteria with drugs is only a temporary solution because the opportunity exists for their reestablishment. Proper diet together with the reestablishment of a good bacterial flora is essential. The bacteria must be starved to death by removing their primary food source, dietary carbohydrates and fiber, from the diet. Removal of these undesirable bacteria by drug treatment will not be successful if carbohydrates continue to be consumed. They will simply return after drug treatment ends because they are opportunistic. See the medical disclaimer below.

Fiber and carbohydrates turn the colon into a hazardous waste dump.

People commonly have a test of their fecal matter that shows they have one or more pathogenic bacteria in the colon. The assumption is commonly made that they must have contracted the pathogenic bacteria in some manner, and this is the reason for their inflammatory bowel disease. Both of these assumptions are wrong. People are routinely exposed to these bacteria which are suppressed by a healthy digestive system. The abundance of carbohydrates and fiber in the diet causes the opportunistic, pathogenic bacteria to proliferate, making their IBD worse. The abundance of pathogenic bacteria in the gut, caused by the consumption of high-carbohydrate foods such as whole grains and fruit, proliferate in the appendix, where they cause chronic inflammation. As a result, appendectomies are very common in people with IBD.

Carbohydrates cause an increase in insulin which promotes the release of epinephrine (adrenalin), causing a collection of physiological actions called the fight-or-flight responses. Two of these responses are in the gastrointestinal tract where muscular movements and digestive secretions slow down or even stop. This causes constipation. Most gastroenterologists erroneously recommend a high-fiber diet to combat the constipation caused by carbohydrates when the correct action should be to stop eating carbohydrates. The fiber can be digested by pathogenic bacteria which encourage their growth. These bacteria stimulate intestinal secretions causing diarrhea. This is why so many people with intestinal diseases find no relief from eating fiber or taking fiber supplements. High-fiber foods are always high-carbohydrate foods. The body responds to prevent offensive carbohydrates from entering the colon by pulling out the water. This causes constipation. The body can also reverse this tactic by pouring lots of water into the colon as it tries to flush out the offensive carbohydrates, bacteria, yeast, and their toxic by-products. This causes diarrhea. A sudden switch from one to the other and back again can occur.

The low-carbohydrate, low-fiber diet recommended here has been shown to stop this vicious cycle. The high-protein, high-fat diet presented here reduces insulin and adrenalin responses. It promotes healing, a healthy digestive system, and normal bowel movements. These improvements occur in a matter of weeks or days in most cases simply by eating a diet typical of many primitive cultures over the centuries. This was the natural diet for mankind prior to the cultivation of grains and the production of factory foods. In order to fully appreciate this diet plan, one must overcome his belief in the current nutritional myths which are promoted by food manufacturing companies.
Top Ten Nutritional Myths, Distortions and Lies That Will Destroy Your Heath.

Some people have a defective gene that causes carbohydrate intolerance or the inability to absorb glucose and galactose in the small intestine. The unabsorbed glucose and galactose continue through the intestinal tract to the colon where they promote the growth of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. Glucose-Galactose Malabsorption is inherited as a recessive genetic trait. The defective gene responsible for this disorder (the sodium-glucose cotransporter [SGLT1]) is located on the long arm of chromosome 22 (22q13.1).
Complex Carbohydrate Intolerance or Glucose Galactose Malabsorption.

Dietary fiber does not prevent colon cancer as commonly claimed. Scientific studies have proven that fiber increases colon cancer. The abundance of carbohydrates and fiber in the diet causes the opportunistic pathogenic bacteria to proliferate and thereby make the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) worse. The Bran Wagon article by Barry Groves, PhD, exposes many of the common myths about high-fiber foods. Dietary fiber actually causes or increases the severity of many diseases.

Dietary Fiber Depletes Vitamin and Minerals From the Body

Fiber absorbs vitamins and minerals and discharges them from the body. Fiber leaches calcium from the digestive tract and discharges it in the stool, when it is desperately needed to prevent osteoporosis, bone loss, hip fractures, and degenerative disc disease.

Dietary Fiber Supporters Have an Agenda

Vegetarians love Dr. Burkitt's fiber theory because meat has no fiber. They use the fact that meat contains no fiber to blame meat for every ailment known to mankind. Every vegetarian book and website is plastered with this false claim. It is ironic that about 80% of the people on inflammatory bowel disease Internet message boards and forums are vegetarians or previously ate a highly vegetarian diet, yet vegetarians are only 6% of the population in the United States. Bowel disease and colon cancer have become epidemic in vegetarians in all English-speaking countries that follow the low-fat, high-fiber diet recommendations.

The author knows only two vegetarians by name. Dave was a healthy-looking handyman. He was trim, and his weight was perfect for his size. In our discussion about health and diet five years ago he rejected my low-carbohydrate diet comments. Dave stated he was a vegetarian. He had just formed a vegetarian support group, but his vegetarian diet has not treated him well since then. Dave was diagnosed with inoperable, terminal colon cancer in 2005. Dave is about 50 years of age.Dave died in August, 2006.

Exercise will not eliminate the risk of cancer but most likely increases 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 came back. Kathy 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. Kathy died in September, 2006.

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.”

The modern supermarket displays thousands of high-carbohydrate, high-fiber foods that occupy 80% of the floor space in the store. These foods are whole grain breads, bagels, cereals, pasta, rice, legumes, potatoes, chips, cookies, candy, fruit, and fruit juices. The promoters of carbohydrates and fiber have caused the current epidemic of constipation, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Whole grain cereal manufacturers are major supporters of the false fiber theory because cereal grains are high-fiber foods. They are constantly spouting claims of fiber heath benefits without providing any supporting science. The supporters of the fiber theory simply reference each other and Dr. Burkitt's erroneous study. The new studies supporting dietary fiber cannot be trusted.

USDA Prime Porterhouse Steak.One thing is certain, you don't have constipation or diarrhea because you eat too many Porterhouse steaks. Red meat and saturated animal fats do not cause inflammatory bowel diseases, heart disease, or cancer. Those claims are all myths, lies, and politically correct nutritional propaganda. People have constipation or diarrhea because their diet consists primarily of high-fiber, high-carbohydrate foods such as whole grain breads, bagels, cereals, pasta, rice, legumes, potatoes, fruit, and fruit juices. Sugar, a carbohydrate, adds to the problem, although it does not contain fiber.

Beef is one of most healthy foods you can eat. Beef is naturally loaded with essential protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and a multitude of other dietary supplements needed for optimal health. Red meat is very low in unhealthy, inflammatory omega-6 fats except the one essential omega-6 fatty acid, arachidonic acid. All of the negative claims against eating red meat are lies, and the negative studies are fraudulent. A diet consisting of 100% beef would provide wonderful health. Red meat provides awesome health. Studies of primitive meat-eating societies such as Indians and Eskimos have proven this scientific fact.

Humans are not Vegetarians Like Cows, Goats, and Deer

Vegetarian animals like cows, goats, and deer digest food by a fermentation process. Bacteria in the stomachs of these animals are able to break the fiber and cellulose down into glucose for their food. The bodies of the dead bacteria are composed of protein and fat that then become available to the cow or goat. Goats love to eat paper because paper is an excellent food for a goat. Paper is cellulose that is digested in the fermentation process within the goat's stomachs. Humans don't eat paper because we do not have a vegetarian digestive system.

Cows and goats produce large quantities of milk consisting of generous amounts of protein and fat, yet the grass they eat has very little protein and fat. Grass is primarily complex carbohydrates in the form of fiber and cellulose. Deer love to eat small twigs, buds, and tree leaves in the same manner. The fermentation process in the animal provides the protein and fat that the animal requires even though protein and fat are not in their food.

Humans do not have a vegetarian digestive system. Humans cannot digest fiber or cellulose. However, the bad bacteria in the human colon can certainly feed on fiber, eventually causing inflammatory bowel diseases. Paper is wonderful food for goats but not for people, who have a carnivorous digestive system almost identical to carnivorous cats, dogs, wolves, tigers, lions, etc. The best foods for people are protein and fat.

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.
