    Dr. Greger’s Shiitake ~ Miso Soup* ~ I omit all of the optional ingredients, esp. the sesame oil.


    Sea Vegetables ~ the sea vegetable hijiki (hiziki) should not be eaten due to high arsenic levels. Kelp should be avoided as it tends to have to much iodine. Today, I stay away from sea vegetables because of Fukushima.

    T. Colin Campbell author of “The China Study,” discovered the then unknown chemical ~ dioxin. Years later He became gravely ill because of his work with that unknown toxin. Dr. Campbell was starting to exhibit facial & vocal cord paralysis which was becoming progressively worst. He went to many Medical Specialists who did not have any effective treatment for his condition. He was giving a lecture about his new book “The China Study,” and he was asked if he was going to have a speaking tour. He explained that he was having difficulty speaking, so a book tour was not possible. Someone at the lecture offered Dr. Campbell free treatment at his fasting clinic. Dr. Campbell was sceptic at first, but then he thought that he had nothing to lose. He had no other options. So he went to the clinic and did the fast and he is still talking 🙂 Dr. Campbell mentioned this in an interview, which WAS posted on his web site. The interviewer asked Dr. Campbell if he had Cancer, what would he do? Then Dr. Campbell told his story. Dr. Campbell changed his web site. All the audio & video interviews are gone 😦
