Indeed.. It’s my way of life, so to speak.. I’ve been preaching it for years.. Now I hope more people will listen.. LOL
I work with a naturalized Iraqi (their diet is similar); he couldn’t think of anyone there who had diabetes or heart disease under the age of 70 - or, more importantly, anyone who DIED from those causes. It’s hard to say if this is the diet or genetics. There is a certain logic to “survival of the fittest”, also...the brutal truth is that in areas with little modern medical care, people who don’t have good, “tough” genes reproduce less simply because of the lack of opportunity. The ethnic diet of my ancestors was TERRIBLE by any standards (bread, cabbage, potatoes, fried everything, and vodka) and yet they lived quite long lives.
