At age 16 I was a volunteer at a hospital bacteriology lab. I became a chemist for U.S. government. Then I studied health & related fields.

Real Cause of Many Health Problems

The real cause of most health problems will surprise most people. This explains why so many people have so many health problems. First we will start out with a myth that causes a great deal of suffering.

This article was written January 16, 2016. Some things are ideas that are talked about so people know about it. Other things are never talked about so ideas about them are in the ether (the clear sky; the upper regions of air beyond the clouds).

One of these is the purpose of doctors. People have this vague idea that medical doctors have something to do with health and helping people with their health. This is absolutely wrong. The purpose of the medical industry is the same as any industry in a capitalistic society. The purpose is to make money. If everyone was healthy medical doctors would be poor. The more people that are sick or injured the more money they make.

I know a woman that is going to medical school. Her name is Alexis. So why is she becoming a doctor? First you need a great deal of intelligence to become one and she has that. In fact she usually gets a 100 on her medical exams. But the reason that she is becoming one is that her father is one and tells her that she can make a lot of money.

In fact she loves to write and having an M.D. after your name makes it easier to get a publisher to publish your book. Now she needs to make a lot of money. She plays a violin that is worth over $20,000 but eventually she wants to play one that is more expensive than that. She also plays an expensive piano but wants one more expensive than that. Also she just started playing a cello so she had to buy that.

So this is a big source of sickness-- thinking that a medical doctor is trying to help you. The doctor is trying to make money. That is why he does it-- to make money.

The Second Real Cause of Health Problems

Now Albert Einstein is credited with this saying, even though there is no evidence that he ever said it.

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

He said the following:

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity and I'm not sure about the former.

So the other big problem is human stupidity. I have seen many stupid things said by smart people. Now as an example I will use a debate about which is healthier the vegan versus the paleo diet. First it is like a debate between the idiots and morons. Which side do you want to be on? Neither was created to be the healthiest diet.

Most diets are designed to lose weight. So the vegan diet has the purpose of protecting animals. Is a diet of only candy a vegan diet? Yes. Does it protect the animals? Yes. Is it healthy? No, it is very unhealthy. The plant-based diet has taken out the religious part of it. The vegan diet is like a religion. If you are vegan, then you are better than others (like the chosen people) and God will give you more blessings.

Now the paleo diet is for people who love the taste of meat and do not want to do without meat. Then they imagine a way that people used to eat and say that these people knew more about health than we did. Actually they ate the food that was available and tasted the best. Health did not enter into it at all. Not in the least. In fact in 1950 the FDA stance on food was that it had no effect on health and the only purpose of food was to fill up your stomach. Also Americans that are concerned about health are nuts and hence the term 'health nuts.'

But I wanted to use a person talking on this video of a very intelligent person that is confused and said something stupid. John Mackey is co-CEO of Whole Foods and co-founder of it. Whole Foods Markets sells $14 billion a year and has over 91,000 employees.

DEBATE: Cave Man Vs. Vegan: What is the Best Diet

Confusion and Wrong Infrmation

Since John Mackey is a co-CEO of Whole Foods you would figure that he is very intelligent. Also after watching the whole thing, I could see that he is very smart and well read. But if someone is a expert on politics and gives a good lecture on it and said that the vice president of the U.S. is Donald Duck and started to talk about this cartoon character, you would wonder what is going on. I wonder how many will watch this video and get this wrong information.

At 17:37 on video he says:

Simple carbohydrates, such as concentrated sugars, white rice, white flour, white pasta these should be minimized or completely eliminated from your diet. This is something I completely agree with with the paleos.

What if one said that we should minimize black people like Adolf Hitler. What would be wrong with that? First Adolf Hitler is not a black person and there are good and black people. White flour and whole wheat flour and white pasta and whole wheat pasta are not simple carbohydrates or carbs. White rice or brown rice are not simple carbohydrates. They are complex carbohydrates that grains are known as. I will not ask you to believe my opinion. I will give you information from the U.S. government. Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia says:

Carbohydrates are classified as simple or complex. This classification depends on the chemical structure of the food, and how quickly the sugar in the food is digested and absorbed. Simple carbohydrates have one (single) or two (double) sugars. Complex carbohydrates have three or more sugars.

Examples of single sugars from foods include:

  • Fructose (found in fruits)

Simple carbohydrates that contain vitamins and minerals occur naturally in:

  • Fruits
  • Milk and milk products
  • Vegetables

Complex carbohydrates, often referred to as "starchy" foods, include:

  • Legumes, such as beans, peas, lentils and peanuts
  • Starchy vegetables, such as potatoes, corn, green peas, and parsnips
  • Whole-grain breads and cereals

Actually it looks like the federal government is mixed up. First it does not mention refined-grain breads so are they implying that they do not exist or fit no category. Then it says:

To increase your intake of complex carbohydrates and healthy nutrients:

  • Eat fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat whole-grain rice, breads, and cereals.
  • Eat legumes (beans, lentils, and dried peas).

I have 2 textbooks on nutrition and they are not mixed up. The first part is correct where it says that simple carbohydrates are in fruits and vegetables. Also what about labels? The 3 types of carbohydrates are simple, complex and fibers that cannot be digested by people. Simple carbohydrates are also called sugars and that is what the label calls them. Complex carbohydrates are starches and the label calls them carbohydrates.

The label calls fibers dietary fiber. Since fruits are mostly sugar, they will call them simple carbohydrates. Since grains (refined or whole) are mostly starches they will call them starches or complex carbohydrates. Now they will call vegetables neither. Why? That is a good question. I am glad that you asked it. Actually I asked it.

Now I am going to pause since you can see the confusion that you may have had and not known about it. Well I will give you a clue. I said that they call grains starches since they are mostly starch, not all starch. I said that they call fruits sugars or simple carbohydrates because they are mostly sugar, not all sugar. So they call vegetables neither since they are about half sugar and half starch. They are roughly half simple carbohydrate and half complex carbohydrate.

Only sugars can enter the blood so all complex carbohydrates must be turned into simple carbohydrates before it can enter the blood. Now I have kept terms to a minimum but a simple search shows that people get them mixed up. Like look for simple sugars, complex sugars, whole carbs and refined carbs. A carb is short for carbohydrate in case you did not know that.

Now John could have said like many experts said that you should eat foods made by God or nature instead of foods made by man that are also called processed foods. Now Dr. Oz says the same things but with different words. He says to eat foods that have no ingredient list. Now this is what the paleo diet should say whether you eat meat or not.

Now they did have a name of a diet that was healthy, but it did not emphasize or de-emphasize meat. Also it did not have a fancy name like paleolithic (paleo is short for paleolithic which is a certain time zone in history-- 2.6 million years ago to 10,000 years ago). It was called "back to nature."

Now the goal of foods made by nature or God is to keep you healthy. The goal of foods made by man is to make money. They make more money by making you addicted to food and making you fatter. A 350 pound person eats a lot more than a 150 pound person. How much more. I could not believe what a 700 pound guy said that he eats for dinner on TV!

He said that for dinner he would eat 2 large pizzas, a few steak sandwiches, a dozen burgers, french fries and then there was dessert. The people who sell food want everone to eat that much.

So a lot of the cause of health problems is wrong information that people accept. For example I was in a grocery store. A guy asked the owner of the store how to grow a certain plant. The owner told him how with plenty of authority. Then after the guy left the owner said that he had no idea of how to grow that plant.

Then there is Lierre Keith that I have an article on. See Lierre Keith and The Vegetarian Myth. This is a great example of what Einstein said. Also she is the author of a book that is in the title and she is well-respected as an expert. Also her claim to fame is that she comes from a long line of depressed alcoholics. Now she said on a video that vegans get no cholesterol since there is only cholesterol in animals foods. That is completely correct! Then she said that since they have no cholesterol they have no sex hormones since you need cholesterol to make sex hormones.

Incomplete information can make you really confused. First you would not be alive with no cholesterol in your body. It would be like saying that vegans have no blood since they don't eat animals. This is so stupid, it is entertaining. So why aren't all vegans dead? Before I answer that, where do cows that eat grass and other animals that eat no animals get their cholesterol? Why don't plants have cholesterol. There is one simple answer. Cholesterol is made by the liver. In animal eating humans, the liver makes 70% of the cholesterol.

If you want some good information without the confusion and wrong information, read Recent Discoveries in Health. Reading this will put you way ahead of the curve. This is the age of information so where are all the discoveries. Well they are there but it is not profitable enough for you to be told about them.

Also you will learn about something that is not a plant food or an animal food and is not a food. Yet over 99% of the people eat it everyday. They stick it in all processed foods even fruit drinks. So people take no notice of it. Yet it causes you to gain weight even though it has no calories and because this non-food substance is very addictive, it causes you to eat more food. It is salt. Yes, I know it is biblical. They put it in the wounds of Jesus to torture Him! Now it causes over a 1,000 Americans to die per day according to Michael Greger M.D. See his 5 minute video on above website.

It is like putting marijuana in your food. Note that after marijuana becomes legal everywhere, then the next step will be to put in your foods. Then you will get much more overweight since you will eat a lot more. My friend used it. He had a gymnastics scholarship to college. He gained weight. He vomited his food (bulimia) to lose weight. He no longer uses it, but also does not have his teeth since the stomach acid has eaten them.

Some Americans do not believe in God. Some Americans do not believe in love since they never experienced it. But they all believe in money. Note that they just had 3 winners of the $1.4 billion dollar lottery. Seventy-one people did not win it but did get one million dollars. I bet they cried all the way to the bank since they were losers.
