Our sons live across the country now, but my gift to my husband, Bill, was us re-watching the movie, Forks Over Knives.
It was about 3 years ago, when we watched it for the first time. After it was done, my husband turned to me and firmly said, “I’m going vegan. You don’t have to, but I am.” I was filled with trepidation. What would we eat? But I shakily said with a gulp, “If you’re going to, I will to.” Bill now says, that inside, he was so scared that he was silently screaming, “No! No! I didn’t mean it! I was only kidding!” But he never shared that. He said OK. And from that moment on, we never looked back and changed our lives.
We got our copy of Forks Over Knives from the library, but you can watch it for a nominal fee on Netflix and YouTube. Get more info at http://www.forkoverknives.com There you can sign up for free newsletters with recipes, etc.
Show Dad how much you care. Watch the movie with him (and Mom)!
Happy Father’s Day.
“After an average of almost 12 years, women who consumed more than one serving a day of high-fat dairy foods had a 49% increased risk of dying from breast cancer during the course of the study!” http://www.aicr.org/cancer-research-update/march_20_2013/cru_dairy_breast_cancer.html
Researchers at Harvard have found out that, men who eat just three portions of cheese a day have poorer quality sperm compared to others.
It is a known fact that hypertension – responsible for decreasing semen count– is caused by fatty foods such as gravy, butter, cheese, bacon and chocolate. Out of all these, cheese has been alleged as a major culprit.
Scientists at Harvard school of Public and Health in Boston have revealed that young men who eat more than three slices of cheese a day may be risking their chances of becoming fathers according to a new study. Male fertility can be affected by a variety of factors including environmental hazards as well as lifestyle factors, especially their eating habits.
In the study, the diets of 189 healthy men aged 19-25 were compared. Each of them filled a Questionnaire which questioned their daily diet consisting of fruits, meat, dairy products and others types of food during a week. Even their sperms were tested in the labs to understand their speed and shape.
It was discovered that the sperm of men who ate more than three portions of full-fat dairy food a day was 25 percent poorer quality than those who had less.
The study, led by Myriam Afeiche explained that the female hormone oestrogen present in cow’s milk may be held responsible for affecting men’s fertility. Pesticides that find their way into the dairy products may also be blamed, she added.
The study proves that globally loved and hogged cheese may have more to it than just its taste after all. Still planning to order that Cheese Pizza with extra cheese on top?
