We began this archive as a means of assisting our visitors in answering many of their health and diet questions, and in encouraging them to take a pro-active part in their own health.  We believe the articles and information contained herein are true, but are not presenting them as advice.  We, personally, have found that a whole food vegan diet has helped our own health, and simply wish to share with others the things we have found.   Each of us must make our own decisions, for it's our own body.  If you have a health problem, see your own physician.

Cancer

Atkins followers also risk cancer. Studies at Harvard and elsewhere involving tens of thousands of women and men have shown that, for example, regular meat consumption increases colon cancer risk as much as 300 percent.[282,283] As one Harvard School of Public health researcher noted, because of the meat content, two years on the Atkins Diet "could initiate a cancer. It could show up as a polyp in 7 years and as colon cancer in ten."[284]

It’s tragically ironic that after McDonald’s CEO apparently dropped dead of a heart attack in 2004, their new CEO was in the operating room with colo-rectal cancer only 16 days later.[285]

Women with the highest intake of animal fat seem to have over a 75% greater risk of developing breast cancer.[286] The American Cancer Society has officially condemned diets high in animal grease, concluding "a low carb diet can be a high-risk option when it comes to health."[287]
