The truth that those red meat headlines didn't tell
Dear Reader,

If you've ever looked at the New York Post, then you know just how powerful sensational headlines can be. You probably also know how dangerous it is to take those headlines at face value and ignore the bigger story when matters of health come into play.

For instance, let me share a headline I came across recently:

Eating high rates of red meat in youth linked to breast cancer

This is exactly why reading the whole article--not just the headline--is so important. So in case you missed the rest of the story, let me fill you in on the details. And explain why this headline is so absurd.

The article referred to data from the Nurses' Health Study II--a large, famous study that involved over 100,000 women. And according to researchers, it showed that women who ate less red meat in their adulthood may also have a lower risk of breast cancer.

Based on this finding, the media labeled red meat as deadly. But putting outrageous headlines aside for a moment, let's take a closer look to see if that's even a remotely reasonable conclusion to draw.

The Nurses' Health Study is practically a household name, due to its vast size and scope. And, indeed, we've collected a lot of vital information from it over the years. But in situations like this, you have to consider its limitations, too.

For one thing, it's a prospective cohort study, where women were simply asked to remember what they ate. And that's strike number one. Most people don't journal what they eat every day. And even if they did, there's no way to guarantee they're being honest with their records. (It's far too easy to conveniently "forget.")

But we also don't know what else the meat-eaters ate. (I've talked about theproblems with "scientific" conclusions like this before. Sadly, mainstream advice has vilified red meat for decades now--misleading health-conscious individuals to actively avoid it in favor of other "healthier" proteins.

So it's fair to assume that a lot of enthusiastic red meat eaters may also be ignoring other mainstream health advice--even the good kind, like eating less processed junk food and exercising regularly.

Researchers didn't take this detail into consideration. But they really should have. Especially since data showed that the women who ate more red meat also happened to eat more in general (and had higher BMIs to show for it). And they also smoked more.

Those are two glaringly obvious risk factors for cancer right there. Yet red meat somehow ends up shouldering all the blame. Again.

To make matters worse, researchers didn't account for the quality of the red meat women were eating either. According to the study: "Total red meat items listed on the food frequency questionnaire included unprocessed red meat (beef, pork, or lamb as a sandwich, pork as a main dish, beef or lamb as a main dish, and hamburger) and processed red meat (hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meat such as sausage, salami, bologna)."

But there's a big difference between roast beef between two pieces of white bread and roast beef on top a fresh green salad. And a grass-fed local steak is a far cry from a McDonald's cheeseburger or a Ball Park Frank. It doesn't take a genius to see that.

Yet, this study put them all in the same category.

I could raise a million more questions about the validity of this research. But the bottom line will still be the same.

The medical establishment has been gunning for red meat for decades. They have no proof that it's bad for you--so they try to manufacture evidence by cooking the numbers.

But the facts tell a different story. In fact, tomorrow I'll tell you why giving up meat is one of the worst things you can do. Stay tuned...

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

When Losing Over 5lbs Causes Weak Bones

Eye-Opening New Study Suggest Shedding Pounds May
Actually Increase Your Risk Of Fractures And Breaks.

If you have weak bones, then here’s some urgent news.

Scientists have recently connected losing weight with an increased risk of bone loss.

How can something that is considered healthy like getting 
a flat belly cause bone density problems?

At first, experts were at a loss. After all, shedding pounds from your belly should have no effect on your bones.

But in a recent study, researchers made a breakthrough...

They found that when people are trying to lose weight, they often do situps and crunches.

Unfortunately, these exercises may actually draw minerals from your bones… and weaken them.

In the study the scientists demonstrated this by dividing overweight volunteers into two groups.

One group was instructed to complete a set of weight loss exercises every day for 4 months. The second group was asked to keep their weight stable.

At the end of the study, the scientists weighed the volunteers and measured their bone strength.

They found that the weight loss group shed over 5 lbs but also  ‘had a significant decrease in bone strength’.

The scientists concluded that weight loss exercises can lead to bone problems.

What does this mean for you?

If you plan to lose weight, but you are worried about your bones, then you need to use exercises that do NOT weaken bone structure.

For example...

  • Low-impact weight-bearing exercises like using elliptical training machines, stair-step machines, or fast walking on a treadmill are a fantastic way to build bone strength.

  • Balance exercises like Tai Chi strengthen your legs, put weight on your bones and test your balance.

Of course, exercise is only one way to prevent fractures and weaknesses. If you would like to discover more tips and tricks, just watch this short presentation now…

Planning Children? Avoid Living Near These Brain Land Mines   pesticides food production
New research shows your chances of bearing an autistic child may shoot up as high as 87% when you live within a mile of these in the US. And that's not all. They're linked to delayed brain development, reduced IQ, and attention deficit.

Almost 20% of Fully Vaccinated Children with Persistent Cough 'Have Whooping Cough'
One in five children who are fully vaccinated for whooping cough still contract the disease, adding further evidence of the DTaP vaccine's questionable effectiveness.

The next question on the poll was about iron.

There are two forms of iron you can find in food. Heme--the most bio-available form--and non-heme, which your body doesn't absorb as efficiently.

It's an important dietary distinction. But unfortunately, most people have no idea it exists.

More than half of the people surveyed incorrectly assumed that you get the most iron from sources like spinach, kale, and other leafy greens, which contain the non-heme form. Meat and poultry are the best sources of easily absorbed heme iron.

According to the CDC, iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency in the U.S. Yet I don't see any ads touting the benefits of meat. (Meanwhile "iron-enriched" junk like bread and cereal somehow gets a reputation as "health food.")

So let me make this as clear as I can: Protein is an important part of a healthy diet. And contrary to what you may have heard, most people consume far too little.

As a general rule of thumb, I usually recommend eating your weight in grams of protein every day. (And up to twice your weight if you're hitting the gym hard in an active effort to gain muscle mass.) So if you're a 140 pound woman, you should eat 140 grams of protein per day. And a 200 pound man should aim for 200 grams.

Luckily, these days, it's easier than ever to keep track of how much protein you're getting. All you need is an app. The one I use is called Lose It--and it's absolutely free. But there are lots of others out there like it. (And most of these tracking tools also have websites, so you don't have to have a smartphone to use them.)

Please understand: I'm not trying to convert anyone who has given up meat on ethical grounds. That's a personal decision that I support fully.

But the claims that going vegan is good for you? They've got to stop.

Cancer patients in particular have been on the receiving end of some pretty appalling dietary advice along these lines in recent years.

But that's a much larger topic than I could possibly cover here. Which is why I devoted a full article to it in the most recent issue of my monthly newsletter Logical Health Alternatives. If you're not a subscriber yet, consider signing up today. Especially if you or someone you love is battling cancer, this is an issue that you can't afford to miss.

Dangers of Dehydration
Don't be fooled.

"Sports drinks" and "energy drinks" are typically laden with calories, sugars, fats, hydrogenated oils, chemicals, and artificial dyes that make them look like radiator fluid. Sure, they might give an artificial, short-term boost, but they actually end up dehydrating the body as it works to get rid of all the toxins.

Healthy hydration is a major key to physical performance. And it helps you avoid muscle fatigue and injuries. But healthy hydration must occur at the cellular level. Instead of robbing your body of hydration, learn how to get key electrolytes andrehydrate your body
What you don't know can hurt you
Dear Reader,

Some days I feel like a superhero dispelling health myths across the country. And there's one myth in particular that just keeps rearing its ugly head, like my own personal Lex Luthor.

I'm talking about the ridiculous notion that red meat is bad for you. Yesterday, I tore into the latest example--a study claiming that red meat raises cancer risk. But today, I'm going to take this conversation a little further. And tell you why giving up meat is actually one of the worst mistakes you could make for your health.

I'll start by directing your attention to the eye-opening results of a recent poll. It revealed that consumers really don't know much about the nutritional benefits of animal protein. A problem I come across in my practice each and every day.

Now, in all fairness, this poll was commissioned by the American Meat Institute. And obviously they have a stake in spreading the word about animal protein (pardon the pun).

But believe me when I say that the stakes are just as high where your health is concerned. So you should be just as concerned by this poll's discouraging findings.

Like the fact that only 12 percent of consumers knew that animal products (like meat, chicken, eggs, and cheese) are the only natural dietary sources of vitamin B12.

In fact, one in five actually thought that cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts) were the main natural source of B12. While 13 percent thought you get B12 from citrus fruits.

I'm not saying you shouldn't eat those foods. Broccoli, cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables are a terrific source of various nutrients. Most notably sulforaphanes, which help to balance hormones and fight cancer, among other things.

But they don't contain a single milligram of B12.

As you might remember, B12 keeps your levels of homocysteine-a major marker for cardiovascular risk--in check. And it's absolutely essential for a healthy heart. Not to mention a healthy nervous system. And, again, animal products are the only dietary sources of this essential nutrient.

Your dog may know you have
cancer before you do
Dear Reader,

When I walk my beagle Remington, he just sniffs and sniffs the entire time. If you have a dog, I'm sure you can relate. And I don't know about you, but I've always wondered what exactly it is he's sniffing.

So I was pretty amazed when I came across some new research that offers a little insight into that very question. Because apparently, Remington can tell a lot about what's going on through his adorable nose.

Get this: A team of Italian scientists recently found that specially trained dogs can use their noses to detect prostate cancer by sniffing urine samples--and with nearly100 percent accuracy, too.

It might sound crazy, but it's true. Researchers tested the ability of two German Shepherds--Liu and Zoey--to identify prostate cancer in urine samples collected from hospitals in Milan. The samples came from 362 men with prostate cancer, as well as 540 men with other forms of prostate disease.

Researchers set up a small room with a video recorder on one wall, along with a series of bowls containing the urine samples. Handlers walked each dog around the full circle of samples once. And then a second time--during which the dogs would stop at the bowls containing urine with odors specific to prostate cancer.

Incredibly, Liu's accuracy rate was 99 percent--Zoey's was 97 percent. And they both had sensitivity and specificity rates ranging from 95 to 100 percent--which means that there were very few false negatives or false positives from either dog. To add to all this, the dogs were able to detect low-risk and advanced prostate cancers with equal skill.

Needless to say, I think this is all absolutely fascinating.

These results are way better than any blood test out there. This method of screening doesn't require any invasive procedure, and it's certainly cheaper. (Which is why we likely won't be seeing more trained dogs anytime soon. After all, our health care system just loves to spend money--your money, that is.)

And it's not just prostate cancer patients who could benefit from this new "technology." Other studies report that dogs can use their sense of smell to identify lung and breast cancer using only breath samples. And that they can sniff out colon cancer in stool, too.

Of course, we still don't really know how the dogs are able to do this. What are they actually smelling? It must be something specific to deliver such high accuracy... but what?

Scientists haven't found the answer to that question yet. So I'm left to wonder how they even trained dogs to do this in the first place. (Though admittedly, these weren't just any ordinary dogs--they had also been trained to detect explosives.)

Ultimately, identifying the compounds responsible for this phenomenon could crack open a whole world of new possibilities. Like electronic "noses" designed to sniff out cancer--similar to devices the military already uses to detect chemical weapons.

In fact, one such device does exist. It's called the ChemPro 100 eNose. It's made by a company called Environics. And a recent pilot study showed that it could also pinpoint prostate cancer from a urine sample. Its accuracy rate neared 80 percent.

Impressive, but not nearly as good as the dogs. With results like theirs, who needs a PSA test?

Okay, so maybe that's a stretch. Obviously, I still recommend men receive routine prostate cancer screening--including the controversial PSA test.

But this research is pretty mind-blowing. And I can't wait to see where it leads.

Dogs are such beautiful and amazing creatures--truly man's best friend. There are amillion reasons to go adopt one today. This latest discovery is just one of the more extraordinary ones.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

Watching Too Much TV Linked to Early Death
Do you watch TV for three or more hours a day? A new study confirms how this increases your risk for chronic disease and early death - even if you exercise vigorously each week.

This is pretty interesting...

I just read this quick article that talked about an unusual way that you can do a DAILY routine that takes less than 30 seconds per day, but can trigger increased fat-burning in your body.

It has something to do with stimulating what's called "brown fat" inside your body.  Brown fat is different than white fat... Stimulating "brown fat" in your body is known scientifically to increase your metabolic rate and aid fat loss... but there's been debate among scientists on what's the best way to stimulate "brown fat".

I thought the method that's suggested in this article is REALLY interesting!

It's certainly something that's quick and easy, and if it only takes less than 30 seconds a day to make it a DAILY routine, should be at least worth a try.

Check it out below...
