In a meta-analysis including 7 prospective cohort studies, vegetarians had a statistically significant 9% lower risk of cancer incidence compared to health conscious omnivores (Fig. 1).5 6 7 8 9 It is important to note that meat intake was relatively low in the omnivorous group in these studies, especially taking into account that a significant portion of the omnivorous subjects were actually classified as semi-vegetarians. This suggests the difference in cancer incidence may be greater when compared to regular meat eaters.

The researchers suggested that if anything, it was not a flesh free diet that caused a higher rate of a number of health problems, but rather that it was poor health that caused these subjects to adopt a flesh free diet. This is similar to the phenomenon where former smokers report poorer perceived health than current smokers, because they quit smoking with the intention of alleviating poor health.2 This phenomenon is often referred to as reverse causality.

Unfortunately, Benjamin Fearnow, the author of the article in the CBS Atlanta ignored the evidence suggesting that these results were the result of reverse causality, and instead suggested that a flesh free diet was actually the cause of a number of health problems:
...the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products — carries elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health disorders.
It is important to note that the Austrian Health Interview Survey did not measure food intake in actual detail. Subjects who reported consuming a flesh free diet were simply assumed to be consuming a diet poor in dietary cholesterol and saturated fat. However, in this study 36% of the vegetarian subjects were classified as lacto-ovo vegetarians, and 55% pescetarians (allowing fish, dairy and eggs). Only 9% were classified as vegans.1 Therefore, up to 91% of the subjects classified as vegetarians consumed dairy and eggs, being the richest sources of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, respectively. The CBS Atlanta failed to mention even the definition of a vegetarian diet used in this study, yet alone the breakdown of subjects in each category of vegetarian diet.




At the time of the report, it was observed that 4.8% of the subjects of the Austrian Health Interview Survey classified as vegetarians had cancer, as opposed to 1.8% of the subjects following an omnivorous diet rich in meat. Unfortunately, no details were provided as to what portion of the studied population adopted a flesh free diet after diagnosis. However, data from previous studies suggest that cancer patients are highly motivated to adopt a plant based diet. As described previously:
The results of a recent study from the Netherlands illustrates the critical importance of considering reverse causality in research on plant-based diets. The researchers found that 75% of the vegetarian participants with cancer adopted a vegetarian diet after diagnosis, consistent with previous research which found that cancer survivors are highly motivated to adopt a more plant-based diet with the intention of improving poor health.3 4
If the 75% figure from the study from the Netherlands is to be considered representative of this Austrian population, this would suggest that only 1.2% of the vegetarians adopted a flesh free diet prior to diagnosis of cancer. This is lower than the 1.8% figure for omnivores following a meat rich diet, but similar to that of the omnivores following a diet low in meat. Unfortunately, due to the lack of reliable data these estimates should be taken with a grain of salt.

Prospective (forward-looking) studies which measure diet before diseases are diagnosed are much less likely to be complicated by reverse causality than cross-sectional studies, and therefore considered to be more appropriate for determining causality. I previously carried out a meta-analysis of 5 prospective cohort studies comparing the rates of cancer incidence in vegetarians compared to health conscious omnivores. For this review, I updated the meta-analysis to include the rates of major cancers in the Adventist Mortality and Adventist Health studies. In addition, I limited the inclusion criteria to studies that provided estimates specifically for subjects classified as either vegans, or lacto-ovo vegetarians.

The Heart Foundation recommends that Australians limit their intake of foods containing high amounts of added sugars. There are many names for added sugars, so look in the ingredients list for: sucrose, glucose, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, dextrose, raw sugar, cane sugar, malt extract and molasses.
Sugars occur naturally in fruit (fructose) and dairy foods (lactose). So while low fat milk may have higher levels of naturally occurring sugar (lactose), you’re also getting the goodness of calcium, protein and other nutrients. Other low fat dairy products and fresh or dried fruit can be higher in naturally occurring sugar and still be nutritious when eaten as part of a balanced diet.
When a product label says ‘No Added Sugar’ the product may contain naturally occurring sugars e.g. lactose (milk sugar) and fructose (fruit sugar), but no additional sugars have been added to the product.

Made up of mostly added sugar or saturated fat, a chocolate bar or soft drink is rightly considered to be a poor food choice because it’s also low in nutrients so all it gives your body is kilojoules with few nutrients.
Foods with the Tick must meet strict levels of kilojoules. As sugar provides kilojoules, this limits the amount of sugar that a Tick product may contain.

In Australia, the latest government recommendations do not specify a daily limit for carbohydrate, sugar or added sugar intake.  However for the prevention of heart disease and other chronic disease, it is suggested that all carbohydrate intake be between 45%-65% of your daily energy intake. 

What are carbohydrates?
Many people think of rice, potatoes and pasta as 'carbs' but that's only a small part of the huge range of foods know as carbohydrates. All fruit and vegetables, all breads and all cereal products are carbohydrates as well as sugars and sugary foods.


However, every now and then we get a “jolt”.  Our bodies need to “tell” us something.  We may get a pain or an ache; some indication that something has changed and needs to be addressed.

This can be from aches and pains when we exercise (not the usual “workout” feelings but something different which makes you know that you need to call a halt to your physical activity, at least for the moment) to a sore throat or the sniffles, which your body uses to indicate that it is in “Houston We Have A Problem” mode alerting you to the fact that it is busy dealing with an “unwanted intruder” (and which lets us know that it could use some extra help in the form of medical intervention either from the pharmacy or by a visit to your GP).

My body has recently been telling me that something is not right.  It started with some stomach pain…and then ended up with me having to camp in the smallest room and then turned into a sickness bug.  It kept me awake and if I did try to eat or drink something my body would very definitely tell me “no”.  It is probably a virus I have a raised temperature and generally feel poorly.

My initial reaction was to go to bed on Sunday afternoon to see if that saw off the initial stomach pains.  It didn’t.  I wondered if it was because I needed to eat something (remembering that I hadn’t eaten very much the day before) and so tried that, but my body quickly decided to expel any food and so I decided to see if sipping apple juice would help.  That was equally unsuccessful.  What was successful was my body’s attempts to let me know that something wasn’t working properly.  It had made that perfectly clear to me.  It was telling me what it did and didn’t want.

Our bodies are great for that.  It is always amazing when pregnant women get cravings for something they would never dream of eating pre-or-post-pregnancy.  Or when you get that feeling that you just “know” that your body is in need of fresh vegetables or a piece of fish or meat.

I am sure that in a few days time my body will start “behaving normally” again.  It will let me know when it is ready to resume normal service.  I will get my appetite back; food and fluid will be retained and my sleep will return to its usual routine.  But for now my body is making me do what it needs me to do.  It has made me refocus on just how brilliant my body is and made me review all those occasions when I “override” it.  When I push past something that I really should pay attention to, and my brilliant body does it’s very best to do what I am asking of it, even though it is letting me know that “all is not well”.

When I once again firing on all cylinders I am going to try to remember what the past few days have felt like.  I will try to remember that my body has the right to say “no”, and that I should listen to it.

So whatever you are doing… take a little time to really concentrate on what your body is telling you… if you do, it will be even more brilliant.

The goal of healthy eating is to develop a diet that you can maintain for life, not just a few weeks or months, or until you've hit your ideal weight. For most of us, that means eating less than we do now. More specifically, it means eating far less of the unhealthy stuff (refined sugar, saturated fat, for example) and replacing it with the healthy (such as fresh fruit and vegetables). But it doesn't mean eliminating the foods you love. Eating bacon for breakfast once a week, for example, could be considered moderation if you follow it with a healthy lunch and dinner—but not if you follow it with a box of donuts and a sausage pizza. If you eat 100 calories of chocolate one afternoon, balance it out by deducting 100 calories from your evening meal. If you're still hungry, fill up with an extra serving of fresh vegetables.

Try not to think of certain foods as “off-limits.” When you ban certain foods or food groups, it is natural to want those foods more, and then feel like a failure if you give in to temptation. If you are drawn towards sweet, salty, or unhealthy foods, start by reducing portion sizes and not eating them as often. If the rest of your diet is healthy, eating a burger and fries once a week probably won’t have too much of a detrimental effect on your health. Eating junk food just once a month will have even less of an impact. As you reduce your intake of unhealthy foods, you may find yourself craving them less or thinking of them as only occasional indulgences.
Think smaller portions. Serving sizes have ballooned recently, particularly in restaurants. When dining out, choose a starter instead of an entree, split a dish with a friend, and don't order supersized anything. At home, use smaller plates, think about serving sizes in realistic terms, and start small. If you don't feel satisfied at the end of a meal, try adding more leafy green vegetables or rounding off the meal with fresh fruit. Visual cues can help with portion sizes–your serving of meat, fish, or chicken should be the size of a deck of cards and half a cup of mashed potato, rice, or pasta is about the size of a traditional light bulb.
Healthy eating tip 3: It's not just what you eat, it's how you eat
Healthy Eating
Healthy eating is about more than the food on your plate—it is also about how you think about food. Healthy eating habits can be learned and it is important to slow down and think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids.
