How Meat Fish and Dairy Harm The Brain
28 Aug 2009
Live Science published a UCLA study of the brain
scans of obese people and found that they have an average
8% less brain mass. Why is this?
How Meat Fish and Dairy Harm The Brain



The brain degeneration of obese people comes from

a. animal fat (cholesterol) clogging brain arteries
.. a man cause of strokes
b. mercury and other heavy metals concentrated in meat, fish and toxic vaccines
They are neurotoxins destroying memory.
c. amyloid plaque... a byproduct of animal and fish protein metabolism which lines the cerebral arteries preventing
blood flow and all the other arteries.. it is found in Alzheimer's sufferers
d. not enough vitamin C: the ascorbic acid which when not destroyed
by cooking is a toxin bouncer
Vitamin C speeds up the flow of signals across nerve synapses in brain and elsewhere.. is in all uncooked fruit.. is in no meat or dairy
e. the diversion of blood from the brain to the stomach
when digesting animal flesh (a lion lies down for
3 days in the savannah after a kill)
f. In addition tryptophan, correlated to animal
protein, causes drowsiness
g. Adrenalin, a terror hormone secreted in massive
amounts by animals, birds and fishes during
slaughter, is a protein enzyme whose links
are only partially destroyed by cooking. Eating
animal flesh includes eating the chemical residue
of the animals' terror and anger. Adrenalin
prevents long term concentration.
h Animal flesh causes obesity
The cited study states that the obese have 8%
less brain tissue. Nonvegetarians weigh an average
11 pounds more than dairy vegetarians and 23
pounds more than vegans,
The more one eats, the more clogging of the brain
arteries occurs.
i Prions: the work of Nobel laureate Dr Stanley Prusiner was put on a back burner at Harvard, which is invested in the meat industry. He continued his prion research at Stanford. Prions are a cause of Mad Cow or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, cervine spongiform encephalopathy (Mad Deer) etc. The US' CDC,
FDA etc have conducted a conspiracy to muzzle
incidence of Mad Cow, Mad Pig etc. These
are criminally diagnosed as brain tumor, encephalitis, meningitis etc. http://www.madcowboy.com

j. Monosodium glutamate MSG is not intrinsic to meat but is put into the muscle flesh of meat to tenderize it. It also breaks down the brain, muscle and nerve tissue of humans eating the MSG meat.. it is called the Chinese restaurant headache cause. The meat industry pawn agency FDA
allows MSG to be hidden in foods under the label
'natural flavors'. There is nothing natural about MSG.

k.
red blood cells
Vegans and fruitarians have more red blood cells per cubic centimeter. Their blood is more purple. More red blood cells means more flow of oxygenated blood to the brain.

Obese People Have 'Severe Brain Degeneration'

livescience.com – Tue Aug 25, 10:35 am ET
A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers said today.


Those classified as overweight have 4 percent less brain tissue and their brains appear to have aged prematurely by 8 years.


The results, based on brain scans of 94 people in their 70s, represent "severe brain degeneration," said Paul Thompson, senior author of the study and a UCLA professor of neurology.


"That's a big loss of tissue and it depletes your cognitive reserves, putting you at much greater risk of Alzheimer's and other diseases that attack the brain," said Thompson. "But you can greatly reduce your risk for Alzheimer's, if you can eat healthily and keep your weight under control."


The findings are detailed in the online edition of the journal Human Brain Mapping.


Obesity packs many negative health effects, including increased risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and some cancers. It's also been shown to reduce sexual activity.


More than 300 million worldwide are now classified as obese, according to the World Health Organization. Another billion are overweight. The main cause, experts say: bad diet, including an increased reliance on highly processed foods.


Obese people had lost brain tissue in the frontal and temporal lobes, areas of the brain critical for planning and memory, and in the anterior cingulate gyrus (attention and executive functions), hippocampus (long-term memory) and basal ganglia (movement), the researchers said in a statement today. Overweight people showed brain loss in the basal ganglia, the corona radiata, white matter comprised of axons, and the parietal lobe (sensory lobe).


"The brains of obese people looked 16 years older than the brains of those who were lean, and in overweight people looked 8 years older," Thompson said.


Obesity is measured by body mass index (BMI), defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters. A BMI over 25 is defined as overweight, and a BMI of over 30 as obese.

Leonardo da Vinci: One day the world
will look upon the eating of animals as it now looks upon the eating of human beings.
(It is an analysis of his Notebooks by
authors such as Dudley Giehl which indicates that DaVinci referred only to the eating of fruits and pastas (the latter is a fruit under the definition that it is the product of a plant.

Albert Einstein: (paraphrased) The most important evolutionary step humanity can take is to evolve toward vegetarianism. Dr. Einstein said in his autobiography that angels gave him the theory of relativity.

Isaac Newton wrote that he was an aspiring vegetarian.

Representative Dan Burton has held hearings about the danger of thethe hepatitis vaccine. Its mercury is related to autism and to the causation of multiple sclerosis.

While all are temples of the indwelling God
and while all can access God's omniscience (for it is the
size of the opening to the Light within which determines
consciousness) those with the highest number of Phd's
both per capita and in numbers are the Asian Indians*
who have been more vegetarian than any other group.

We all have the same Indweller God inside, but some have a greater opening to the God within.

Dick Gregory author
of Cooking With Mother Nature for Folks Who Eat who convinced the poster
to aspire to fruitarian diet.. who has run across America
to focus on justice issues

Ananda Mayee Ma, self realized master, was a fruitarian who waited
until the fruit dropped from the tree. That is easier for
those who live where many fruit trees grow.



HEALING
As cholesterol and plaque slowly build up in the brain, they can slowly be eliminated through chelation
therapy or fruitarian or vegan diet. Fruit juice fasts can eliminate these
toxins more quickly.
