Are You Getting Enough Fat in Your Diet?

Leave a comment

Are you getting enough fat in your diet? This may seem like an improbable question to most people and, indeed, after decades of being told by the FDA, the medical establishment and the media that fat is “bad” for us, it seems highly improbable that anyone would ask such a question. However, I ask you, nevertheless, and I believe I can supply the answer, as well: no.

For decades, we have been told that dietary fat – which was common to everyone’s diet for prior centuries, with no ill effects that we are aware of – is somehow the culprit in causing obesity and heart disease. Yet, as I shall show you, this is not only untrue, it is an outright lie, designed to deliberately create a population of obese sick people to sell drugs and medical services to, and that the medical establishment, the pharmaceuticals industry and the processed foods industry have all joined forces to promote, perpetuate and to profit immensely from this. They have, as their goal, not only the creation of a society of sick people, but actually seek to grow and expand that population of sick people, as these people are their bread and butter. Without a large population of people eating the foods that make them fat and sick, without a large population of people then seeking medical treatment for their various illnesses, without a large population of people buying various prescription drugs to “treat” their diseases, these three industries would go broke. The media aids this conspiracy – and it is a conspiracy – by creating and disseminating the propaganda necessary to convince us all, for decades, to eat a low fat diet and fat-free foods and to “just ask your doctor” for prescription drugs to treat the results of such a diet.

We all have a great deal of brainwashing to undo, regarding the role of fat in our diet. Contrary to the prevailing view that fat is “bad” for you, it is not only beneficial, but vital to your survival – and it does not cause atherosclerosis and heart disease, nor is it a causal factor in the development of cancer. In fact, fat actually protects your body from these conditions.

But, the main point I want to make is that the epidemic of obesity in our society is not caused by fat in our diet, but by the lack of fat in our diet. It is the introduction and widespread promotion of the low-fat diet and fat-free foods that have lead directly to the rise of obesity. How? First, you need to understand how your body works.

The body stores calories – from any type of food – as fat in order to build up a reserve energy source in the event of “famine.” If you are not supplying enough fat – or no fat at all – to your body, then it will be prompted to store more of what you eat as fat. Thus, the low-fat diet – and, in particular, fat-free foods, which are also laden with sugar – actually prompt more fat storage, not less. The result of eating a low-fat diet, then, is obesity. In contrast, if you are supplying your body with adequate dietary fat, your body will not feel the need to store as much fat. Thus, eating a high-fat diet has two effects: first, it supplies the body with enough fat to keep it from storing fat, and secondly, it satisfies your appetite more readily, thus keeping you from overeating.

If you have been eating a low fat diet and then change to a high fat diet, you will lose body fat as a result because your body will then store less fat, giving it an opportunity to burn off what it has stored.

Another myth that has been perpetrated upon us is that there is “good” fat and “bad” fat. The fact is that the so-called “bad” fat; i. e., saturated fat, is actually better for you than mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats – and is certainly better than trans-fats. Why? Because, again, it better satisfies your body’s need for fat and less of it is required to do so.

How To Create a Fictional Threat And Lead the People to a Pre-Determined Solution

Leave a comment

I have found it is quite easy to predict what will be coming in the form intrusive and invasive legislation; laws that will rob us of more of our freedom, that will allow more government intrusion into our lives and our privacy.  I just make it a point to watch any of the MSM news shows (except anything on FOX) to hear what the latest “concerns” are by intelligence agencies or other people in the know.

For weeks now, newscasters have told of the serious threat of cybercrimes, and we all need to be shaking in our shoes over the threat of propaganda from “extremists” operating in cyberspace that are going to invade our home computers, take over our minds with clever brainwashing techniques and lead us all into the realm of terrorists.  Of course if you do watch FAUX news, this could be a distinct possibility!

Congress is now considering the Anti-Homegrown, Anti Radical, Anti-Dissident, Anti-Whatever you can come up with bill that has as its centerpiece the intent to control web access and content.  Unknown to the millions of us who are on the net daily, sometimes for hours at a time, there are radical extremists just lying in wait for the chance to expose us to their verison of propaganda.  Like we couldn’t spot that after being inundated by the junk dumped onto the net by our own government.  But I personally have never seen or been approached by any of these cyber radicals and I spend hours each and every day working online.  In fact, I can’t find even one person who has ever seen any of these radicals pop into their system.

So fearful is our congress that we will not only be exposed to radical propaganda (other than theirs) but, we are so stupid and so gullible that we will be immediately sucked into the world of radical extremism.  So, we need a new law!  One that will close off entire sections of the net, that will stifle any politcal, religious, or social efforts for change.  The truth is,  they need this law primarily to stop the activism, the flow of real information and to stop the growing movement in America to take back our country from a fatally corrupted government that is now controlled totally by multinational corporations, the global elite and those who are working towards a one world government.

George Tenent, head of the FBI recently testified to a sub-committee that the FBI needs total access to all internet and communications by any individual anywhere in the country.  Why?  Because spying on every one will undoubtedly produce at least one radical terrorist in the making.  Not one  of those people chairing that committee asked George the obvious question: How could overloading the surveillance systems with useless information from billions of sources produce anything but chaos and, how could you possibly thread through the mountains of useless information each day and think that you could possibly identify even one source of importance or interest?  The fact is you couldn’t, but that isn’t the real intent anyway.  Thats the created fictional threat.  Now….aren’t you scared?

The Clean Water Restoration Act is another of those created fictional problems dutifully reported by the MSM as a “growing threat” to the environment.  Why! polluters will run rampant if we don’t pass this “clean water” act.  They are running rampant anyway and this law will only make that problem worse.  By allowing the federal government to claim control over every water source of any kind, and even over dry lake beds, they can stop those polluters dead in their tracks!  NOT!  The fed has to claim authority over all the water in order to be able to privatize the entire water system by selling it off.  This would be to the same corporations in many cases that are doing the polluting and would now be able to sue the government under the trade illegal provisions of CAFTA.  Meaning any law, environmental or otherwise that prohibits their ability to make a profit even if they are the only enitity involved who thinks a profit is possible. 

What passes for news in this country is simply the promotion of state sponsored approved content.  What ever is in the works in D.C., will show up on MSM as headline news presented as a threat, as a great national concern which will preceed some poltical official making a statement about how terrible the problem is…….but he/she has a plan!  Something that will save us all from the current fictional threat.  A new law that will take more away from us in the form of freedom.

Of course, if headline news from the DoD, pentagon, or current administration isn’t to your liking, there is always the air time wasted on celebrity news and birthdays, the occasional crotch shot or mug shot.  My goodness, now there is news worth wasting your time on. 

For those interested in doing some research on who or what controls what you see on the “news”, search out Operation Mockingbird.
