So French Fries are just Potatoes, right?

June 13, 2016

They are in the vegetable family. McDonald’s lists 14 ingredients such as emulsifiers in its French fries  French Fries contain this Nail Polish Chemical .

I don’t want to belabor the point but to bring awareness how the environment influences our health.

Phthalates may be common in fast food. DEHD and DiNP are two of the common derivatives. There is a vast amount of scientific literature on the adverse health effects of phthalates. What happens is that small amounts may be tolerable but prolonged daily exposure builds up. The fact that they were able to measure phthalates in people who had eaten fast food is very scary. There are many people scrambling up the career ladder that this affects daily.

I have three questions:

One, whatever happened to slicing a potato and frying it in a pan of coconut or grape seed oil?

Two, do we get older faster than biologically programmed?

Finally, can the environment of the modern world and accumulation of toxic load over time play a part?

Society accepts that after age 50 that things start to slowly decline. It does not need to be this way. The “human machine” needs to be balanced to run properly. In conventional medicine standard of care is an annual physical following which, many times, the doctor will say “Everything looks good, continue your medications, and try to lose about 20 pounds before I see you next year.” And if you fall apart in the meantime they will try to put you back together.

In a holistic setting not only will the above be done, but additional testing will look at the level of function of your “human machine.” The data collected develops a roadmap that can be used to guide you in a program. We try to find your “sweet spot” and what can be done to maintain your function at that level.

Then, related to this topic, it is important to develop some sort of detoxification program. I have no cookbook since this is developed on a personal basis with each patients. Most toxins are stored in fat. This is the importance of maintaining a good body composition of lean muscle mass.

Now, to show my age (Medicare) I share the following:
