Welcome to CSR Nation
Thanks for the info. I watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and Forks Over Knives this year and I TiVo Dr. Oz. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by all the information on the show and get a little paranoid about eating anything but I try to eat a lot of the items mentioned above!
It's all baby steps. "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" changed my life. I am a new person after watching that documentary. Another on of my favorites is "Food Matters."
This is an area that really interests me. I was very surprised when my M.D. recently told me to
get Tumeric capsules for relief of my arthritis and knee pain. I think that physicians and health
care providers are looking back at what could be causing all the health problems. It is a little
more time consuming but in the long run if we investigate what we are eating and try to change
our ways, we will be happy and healthier.
Did the Tumeric help for your pain Maureen?
I'm big on antiinflammatory foods, too. First heard about it from Dr. Andrew Weil. Basically if we eat by Michael Pollan's adage, "If it's a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don't," we can't go wrong.
Marge, wish there was a "like" button for your statement and I'd for sure hit it.
Yep! Food Rules by Michael Pollan, that's where that line comes from. A worthwhile read for everyone.
