Vegans are sproutin' mad at me -- absolutely steamed, like microwaved broccoli -- over my recent column on soy "burgers" contaminated with hexane, a dangerous neurotoxin. by Dr. Wm. Campbell Douglass
(Read: "Dangerous chemical used to process soy.") "The Douglass Report"
Article: Dangerous chemical used to process soy!
"Listen up, veg-heads — because your soy burger was processed with poison.
A new report from the nonprofit Cornucopia Institute finds that many veggie burgers, meatless chicken patties and soy- based snack bars contain a dangerous neurotoxin called hexane.
But if you’re a vegetarian, why worry? Break out the soy patties and fire up your environmentally friendly dung- powered grill. You’re on the road to sickness and disease anyway, and this will help speed your journey.
The report says food manufacturers bathe soy in this poison to help separate it into oil, protein and fiber. And this chemical can linger right up to the point where you bite into your flavorless, meatless nuggets.
Yum, yum — hungry yet? The hexane itself actually comes from petroleum, so you know it must be tasty and healthy.
The Evironmental Protection Agency considers hexane to be a hazardous air pollutant. That’s right — forget eating it, you shouldn’t even inhale the vapors.
It’s so toxic that the Nazis actually injected a related chemical, benzine, into concentration camp victims.
Soy is bad enough for you… it mimics estrogen so well that the body actually thinks it’s getting an extra hormone boost. And believe me, you don’t need it. It’s making women sick and turning men into weepy, boob-growing shemales.
Add hexane to the mix, and you don’t have a meal. You have a death wish.
If you’re really craving a burger, skip the soy and come back to the real thing. You can’t beat it for taste and health, and most vegans know it — even if they won’t admit it.
Why else would they put so much time and effort into trying to recreate it?") - end Article
Talk about shooting the messenger -- you people should be thanking me! (And to those of you who did, you're welcome.)
To be fair, a few vegetarians sent me carefully written, thoughtful defenses of their diets, and I enjoyed reading them -- even if they were ultimately wrong. Others, well... let's just say I've seen better writing on bathroom walls.
Here's my favorite, unedited and uncensored:
I think you're a shil for the meat industry. As a doctor you should know the majority of the health issues in America are due to high intake of animal fats. So continue your advice to all those who eat these items (you as well) and perhaps die of a heart attack, stroke, diabeties, high fat and blood pressure.
The only part he got right was when he called me a doctor!
Sorry pal, but you'd have to be high on sugar to believe that animal fats are causing disease. Our problem isn't meats -- it's sweets.
Here's a simple experiment you can try at home, when you're not too busy sending out hate mail: Create a graph of sugar consumption over the past century. Then, create a graph with obesity, diabetes and heart disease levels over the same period.
Drop me a line and let me know what you find. Feel free to use crayon if it's more comfortable.
Several angry greenies accused me of being a shill -- or a "shil" -- for the meat industry, which only proves they're really vegans. Any regular reader who thinks I support the meat industry is clearly suffering from one of the well-established side effects of a meat-free diet: memory problems due to low vitamin B12.
Here's a refresher:
* The ugly truth behind ground beef!
* Factory foods filled with disease!
* A tale of two beefs!
Factory farms are disease mills, and the "meats" that emerge from them are crawling with filth -- not to mention dangerous hormones and powerful antibiotics. And yes, they're even cruel.
I can't and won't defend them... but that doesn't mean you have to give up meat for supposed ethical reasons, either, because there's a big difference between this shady, greedy industry and natural meats from quality sources.
All you need to do is skip the supermarket meat aisle and visit a good butcher instead -- someone who gets natural, free-range, grass-fed meats that are free of hormones and antibiotics, ideally from small organic farms.
You'll pay more, and it'll be worth every penny.
And if you STILL think being ethical means depriving your own body of critical nutrients, essential minerals and healthy fats and protein, knock yourself out.
Just remember: plants have feelings too.
Article: If meat is murder, then salad is slaughter!
Vegans love to climb up on their organic soapboxes and claim the high ground… because no animals die for their food.
But is it any better to kill plants?
Heck no… botanists have always known that plants–like the rest of us–have instincts, behavior and a will to live too… and a recent article in the New York Times offers some real food for thought.
I’ll bet the vegans will have a hard time digesting this one!
Plants communicate. When attacked, they’ll even defend themselves. Not enough to stop the average vegetarian from crunching on them, but they’re pretty good at turning away insects and other threats. For example, a plant being attacked by a caterpillar can send out a chemical signal that calls out to insects and parasites that eat caterpillars.
This is backed up by science, talk to some botanists. They’ll tell you that plants can be ruthless competitors: They will move, shift and grow in ways to get the most sun for themselves while shading and even strangling others… and then suck up all the nutrients from the ground before neighboring plants can. (Yes and remember the Elite love the laws of nature, because Nauture is Ruthless, just like them...DS888)
You could take all that and decide that we simply shouldn’t eat anything… ever. Or you can be practical about it and realize that, as the dominant species on the planet, we humans can eat all the plants and animals we want.
To the victors go the spoils. For a few shining moments, that’s us… but don’t worry. The plants win–eventually, we all end up as fertilizer.
Meet Dr Douglass...
I’m William Campbell Douglass I.I., M.D. I’ve been called “the conscience of modern medicine,” and the National Health Federation voted me "Doctor of the Year".
But, I’ve also been labeled a “maverick”, and several less flattering names too, by some of the biggest names in the government and health establishments – but, hey, that’s part of the territory. And my territory is everywhere…
•I’ve flown with US Navy crews as a flight surgeon…
•Saved lives as a long-time emergency physician…
•Battled malaria in bullet-torn regions of Central America…
•Fought deadly epidemics at my own health clinic in Africa…
•Worked alongside doctors at Russia’s renowned Pasteur Institute…
•I’ve even been called before Congress (they never asked me back)…
And if there’s one undeniable fact I’ve learned in 40 years of treating patients all over the world, it’s that…
There is no such thing...as an undeniable medical fact!
That’s why I keep searching and fighting for the real medical breakthroughs that will keep you on the road to a healthy, length life – a road that can be easier, cheaper and far more pleasant than any health-nag would every lead you to believe. I guarantee it.
