The China Study


I just love what comes to me during a fast.  A few months ago I was given this book to read but because I was preparing for an open house with this person, I didn’t take the time to read it thoroughly, I was more focused on the event.  This has just been “in my face” somehow to the point that I had to go out and get it yesterday.  How fascinating!  It’s about a professor at Cornell University…specializing in bio-medical research….Brett looked into that….but he seems to be more excited about electricity : )   He was brought up on a farm and totally believed in dairy, meat, eggs, etc….they even found a way to make the animal feed higher in protein.  His goal was to make this even more refined, more protein rich…so they could eat more meat.  He studied with 3rd world countries that were deficient in protein….amongst other things….and high in liver cancer, the conclusion was that they needed more protein.  Through his research….and I’m only several chapters into it….he began seeing that the opposite was true…..protein….especially the protein in dairy products ignited the cancer and plant proteins shut it down.  In the normal world….when I’m not on a Daniel Fast…..I live on yogurt….if you know my story, you know that cancer ran an ugly rampant race through my family.  Alexis loves cream and milk….Brett loves milk on cereal…..Eric drinks a whey protein shake for lunch every day…..it does say that a small amount , (under 5% didn’t seem to be a problem), but some of what we are doing could lead to disaster.  I find it so interesting that this comes at this point.  As much as I love yogurt….and I do…..I don’t love it that much….I feel like this is a warning…..and sorry family….I’m going to shake things up again….I love you!!!!
