Making Changes to Live Better and Live Longer

Dr. David Servan-Schreiber

Good Morning, God!

It seems to take a while for things to soak in to my brain. A wise friend has been sending me LOTS of information about Dr. David Servan-Schreiber and his book Anti-cancer: A New Way of Life.

And I thought, RIGHT, more about eating broccoli. But, I watched him in a brief YouTube presentation and he’s really GOT IT! I bet Being French helped him. The French are still mostly eating real food so it wasn’t totally unfamiliar to him.

It isn’t so much that I didn’t KNOW that sugar and white flour feeds cancer. Not that I didn’t know that the changes in fats since the 1940’s (especially transfats) were BAD for us. And I knew that the industrialization of the meat and dairy industries has switched the fast fat (omega 3) that comes from cows eating GRASS to the slow fat (omega 6) that happens when you feed them grains.

But, those factoids were scattered about in my brain, God. They never seemed to gather together for a “Critical Mass” that would get this Little Lemming pointed away from the sea.

What to do is clear. ONE: Eat lots of vegetables, no packaged foods, no oils except olive oil, and only grass-fed meat and grass-fed dairy. TWO: exercise for 30 minutes six times a week. THREE: build relaxation/contemplation into all of life. FOUR: avoid pollution and contaminants.

We are talking SLOW HARD CHANGES. God!  True, I don’t need to do it all immediately. I can work toward it. I can ask Kit to help, friends to help, and YOU to help.
