Masai Teeth

Posted by on January 23 at 9:54 AM

I live for junk like this:


I recently found this website, and read through your article about health and diet, and was quite disappointed with some of your recommendations. I completely agree with your concerns for greasy fast foods causing health problems, but please don’t lump wonderful nutrient dense foods like eggs and red meat into this category. These foods have sustained traditional cultures for millennia. If you do your research on traditional African diets you will find that the healthiest and most long-lived people always had a source of animal or insect protein to provide the fat-soluble vitamins A and D. (Vitamin D deficiency in Blacks is rampant and widespread as you may or may not know). Specifically, there is a tribe in Africa, the Masai, which live on diet largely consisting of red meat and raw dairy. This tribe is known for its longevity and absence of the diseases of civilization as well as their beautiful straight teeth. I must add that there is a huge difference between the feed lot animals raised in confinement compared to those raised sustainably on green pasture in open air. The introduction of vegetable (industrial) oils, white flour and sugar, pasteurized milk, highly processed foods like soy, and food additives into our diets are largely responsible for the maladies you describe. My organization is a huge adovocate of Buying Local, and Buying Organic. You don’t necessarily have to eat meat to be healthy, but you need a source of the fat-soluble vitamins which are only found in animal fats. These fats allow use to stay healthy generation after generation. If you serious about our brothers and sisters health, I urge you to learn more about what I am talking about please refer to these resources below:
