Red meat. I eat nearly 100% red meat (I'll occasionally have chicken or bacon). I've been doing so for years.

On the other side of the coin: no fiber. Docs still advise men to consume 38 grams per day. I get zero grams of fiber per day. lol

All the non-GMO food in the world would not prevent lung cancer, for instance.

Shredded wheat has glyphosate residue. Lots of foods have other "interesting" chemicals, including some now laced with a chemical derived from marijuana. And we're eating ground-up plastic in sushi, according to various reports.

I no longer pick strawberries at the nearby farm because the amount of weedkiller they use is overpowering. I could smell it when I was picking. Laying down black plastic and straw should have been enough, but the rows reeked. And their baked goods, obtained from nearby suppliers, all have partially hydrogenated oils. Which in my book equals poison and I do my best to avoid. So, not a lot of healthy and natural at Ye Olde Country Farm type place after all.

Individual bodies react differently to different stimuli, or we'd all be dying right now.

I'm 75 and have been on a high protein diet most of my life. No cancer yet.

I do eat a lot of veggies because I love them but not fruit. I can eat bananas and there is a recipe for one ingredient banana ice cream on the Internet. It's really good.

I can't eat strawberries or melons because of the high sugar content. When I was in the hospital four years ago, they had these huge, fresh strawberries that I ordered twice a day. When I left the hospital, my sugar was 350. Of course, the chocolate cake might have had something to do with it. Went really well with the strawberries. But I've had the problem with strawberries before without the chocolate cake or any other sugar. Now I just don't eat them. Too much fruit will also give me diarrhea. So will veggies for that matter, but not nearly as bad as fruit.

You're not supposed to grill meat either because that's said to be carcinogenic. A friend of mine told her doctor that he'd left her nothing to eat but water.

Scientists are paid by big companies and in order to keep their grant money, they must come up with the results that company is looking for. Now if they come up with a cure for cancer or crohn's or alheimer's, I'll bow down to them.

Angela, after reading your post I ordered this:

https://www.amazon.in/Jain-Triphala-Tablets-1000-Count/dp/B06Y6L2WZ5/ref=sr_1_30?keywords=Triphala&qid=1579022292&s=hpc&sr=1-30

yes, I ordered 1000 Triphala Tablets.

Then I asked a doc about them and she said they were very harmful. Her exact words were if you take them regularly, theyíll loosen the bowels. I guess she meant they would cause diarrhea if taken long term.

Now iím afraid to take them. How long have you taken them and have you suffered any side effects? Does the Triphala I bought [see above] sound the same as what youíre taking?

I did take one tablet before consulting her. It had a laxatve effect but I didn't get a stomach ache as one reviewer complained he got.

I live in the home of Ayurveda but not everyone in India trusts Ayurvedic medicine. Iíve been told it can be harmful.

One doc told my mom once: ďWe canít prescribe Ayurvedic medicine, only Allopathic.Ē

I suspect thereís some rule in India. Many docs distrust homeopathic medicine too.

Re high protein, iíve read they inject hormones into chickens and livestock in the US to make them grow faster. And that can cause cancer. So isnt a high protein diet risky in that it might lead to cancer? Sure, thereís organic meat but thatís more expensive and I read once not all organic foods are truly free of chemicals.

Iíd be very interested to read the responses of all of you on a high protein diet. donít you worry about getting cancer from the meat? How much of fruits and veggies do you eat? I loathe veggies and should eat more but I canít live without fruit. I crave at least one orange a day and some other fruit like papaya or mango when itís in season.

and re bacon, isnt it processed meat and therefore carcinogenic?

Skype should work just fine, and be free.

The only issue might be the net connection speed in India. Might make Skype into a slideshow, or you need to turn off the vid to get good audio.
(Might be I'm out of date too, and it's fine these days.)

Bar & Grill [Public] / Anyone have any problem using Skype or Facetime?

If someone using a cellphone in the US calls to a landline in india, does the recipient in india have to pay too?

I googled and found conflicting results. This says itís free:

https://www.quora.com/Are-incoming-international-calls-free-in-India-1#

ďYes Incoming International calls are free in India.Ē

Also read this:

ďAre incoming international calls in India free of charge? If no ...
https://www.quora.com/
1 answer
Mar 5, 2018 - As long as you have a local number (obtained in India) with +91 country code Ö. ... All incoming calls (local/national and international) are free including receiving SMS messages (local/national and international) and this is true with any service provider in any part of India.Ē

***

But elsewhere I read we in India get charged. iím a technophobe and loathe installing and learning how to use new programs. Is it easy to install Skype and use it?

I know I read some complaints about Skype years ago. Anyone have any problem using Skype or Facetime? Are they really totally free, even when someone in the US connects to someone in India?

Are there any better programs? Thanks!

Bar & Grill [Public] / Can anyone find this Gandhi quote?
« Last post by Vidya on January 17, 2020, 11:48:28 PM »

It goes something like this:

ďReligion has been responsible for some of the most brutal [or violent or something] acts. But that is not the fault of religion but due to the nature of man.Ē

I kept googling variations but I canít find this quote. I need to know exactly how it goes. Does anyone know this quote and if so, can you please quote it accurately?

Or does anyone have any special google fu that they can find it? Thanks!
