CHAPTER 1. THE VIRUS CON—A LETHAL GAME! by Calvin Burgin 4/17/97. PART II: WHAT IS A “BALANCED” DIET? Editor’s note: Part I of this article was presented on p. 2 of last week’s CONTACT. Part II, to the end of this article, is presented here. The “authorities” in nutrition, and the government, say that we should eat a “balanced” diet. By that they mean we should eat a food from each of four food groups, every day. The diet “expert” at Harvard even recommends a fifth food group, “recreational” food, such as pizza, hotdogs, tacos, ice cream, etc. We have to be careful about relying on “authorities” and “experts”. Sometimes we must use our own common sense. LET TRUTH BE YOUR AUTHORITY, DO NOT LET AUTHORITY BE YOUR TRUTH. I have questions for the “experts”. Why should we eat a food from each of the food groups every day? Should a cow eat a food from each of the food groups every day, or should it eat the food it was biologically adapted to eat? Should a wolf eat a food from each food group every day, or should it eat the food to which it is biologically adapted? Should a bird eat a food from each food group every day, or should it eat the food to which it is biologically adapted? Should a fish eat a food from each food group every day, or should it eat the food to which it is biologically adapted? Are humans’ digestive systems different? How are they different? Should we eat a food from each food group every day, or should we instead eat the food to which we are biologically adapted? I think the answer is rather obvious. The real reason the government, the American Dietetic Association, the American Diary Association, the American Meat Council, etc., recommend eating from each food group is to keep the people selling these “foods” happy—it is an economic reason, not a health reason. I don’t want to go into exactly what you should eat. We are less-than-perfect beings and live in a lessthan- perfect world (civilization). It is easy enough to figure out that the best foods for us, the foods to which we are biologically adapted, are fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. However, such foods are simply not available to most of the world most of the time, and when available have been denatured by human greed practices. So we have to make compromises, compromises which compromise our health. Humans were not designed to eat meat (where are the claws, the fangs, the 1,000 times more acidic digestive system, etc.), but we live in a meat-eating culture. It could also be said that humans were not designed to fly (where are our wings), yet we manage pretty well. Life is a struggle between choices, a struggle for balance, a search for what is balance. ...
