Health: Who Can You Trust

I always try and share links to studies and research so people do not have to take my word for anything. While I rely on several credible, long-trusted sources, I wanted to just make two things clear that I think are extremely important.

I have always said there is no one perfect or right diet (or supplement, or exercise or medication) for everyone. We are all one of a kind, unique individuals and what works for me may not work for you. What works for you today may not work for you in 5 years. Our bodies are not static but fluid and constantly changing and adapting.

The second thing is that it is not wrong to be skeptical of things you read or hear. The big authoritative experts have flip-flopped on so many issues!! Coffee is good for you. No it’s bad. Butter is bad and margarine and canola oil are good. No, wait that’s not true. Plant foods are best. No animal foods are. What and who do you believe?

Investigations over five years of the leaders in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics revealed that this agency, which claims to be “your source for science-based food and nutrition information,” has uncomfortably close ties to companies that manufacture some of the unhealthiest foods out there as well as pharmaceutical companies. I have always recommended we follow the money when a study seems to contradict common sense and that is a good strategy here.

Nutritionists and dietitians trained by this authority would necessarily be aligned, for the most part, with their beliefs. If they are compromised as a nutritional authority by financial ties with corporations that produce junk and pharmaceuticals, are they really watching out for our health or their bottom line?

I honestly don’t find this surprising but it is alarming how many people are unaware of this fact and will buy whatever they are told hook, line and sinker. It’s more than ok to be skeptical and to question and research things. In fact, I would dare say, it’s to be encouraged.

When choosing foods my guiding principle is to choose the cleanest, freshest, whole, one-ingredient foods in a form as close to how God created them. So I encourage you to ask questions and delve deeper into issues that concern your health. You can’t always trust the “authorities” are doing that.

Do you trust whatever you read or are told form an authoritative source or do you question and go deeper?

    Ann, thank you for sharing this wisdom that needs to be applied in so many areas. Like Dorothy in Oz, we have to look behind the curtain!

    I don’t believe anything and it’s quite unfortunate. 😕

      Oh boy Holly – I am right there with you. I was talking to a family friend this morning and she was saying something about what
      she saw about progress re Alzheimers and cancer and all I said was – if it’s true. I don’t believe 95% of anything I read or hear.
