Top Ten Worst Diet and Healthcare Choices
& Ten Better Choices

c. 2016, Susun S Weed

There are so many choices – and so many opinions – when it comes to diet and health, that many feel as though they have fallen overboard. We abandon hope of making sense of all the different ideas and cling to the nearest piece of flotsam in the belief that it will keep us from drowning.

But grabbing hold of the latest idea is not the best way to create optimum. Someone who says something loudly and often is not necessarily speaking the truth. The lifesaver that will help us make our way through the crashing waves is knowledge of how the body actually works. Once we understand the way our liver functions, for example, we can judge the likelihood of success of a liver “cleanse.”

 If a special diet and healthcare idea nourishes and complements the natural functioning of our organism, it is likely to create long-term health and vigorous maturity. If it aggravates, inflames, or injures our physical being, it is unlikely to create anything other than short-term results and chronic lessening of vigor.

Here are my ten choices for “The Worst Diet and Healthcare Information Currently Available.” Some are new, and some are bad choices that have been around for decades.

1. Blood type diets.
2. Green drinks.
3. Essential oils.
4. Vegan diets.
5. Functional medicine.
6. Cleanses; liver flushes.
7. Colonics.
8. Candida overgrowth.
9. Sprouting.
10. Blue green algae.

1.    Blood-type diet
Blood type diets claim that different blood types require different diets. There is no evidence-based support for this belief. In fact, following a blood-type diet makes about as much sense as eating a diet based on your hair-, eye-, or skin-color.

How does the body work?
Yes, there are blood types – A, O, B, AB – but that is just one classification of the differences in blood. There are several dozen different factors that distinguish bloods. Transfusions work better when several factors are matched. Obviously choosing your diet based on just one blood type factor is not likely to be accurate.     

: Eat a broad diet including lots of well-cooked plant leaves, seeds, roots, and berries; free-range meat, milk and eggs; and wild foods including fish, mushrooms, and sea-weed. All blood types thrive on such a diet.
