Dr. Joel Wallach begins the show today discussing cardiovascular disease. Asserting that when he did comparative pathologies he looked at the arteries of meat eaters and vegetarians finding the later had more clogged arteries. Stating this is because they consumed a lot of oils that had oxidized and caused damage to the walls of the arteries. In an effort to repair the artery wall the body put plaque over the damaged areas eventually clogging the artery.Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a study from the University of Taiwan. Researchers fed one group of mice a high fat diet along with an extract from the "Lingzhi" mushroom. Feeding another group only the high fat diet. After two months those getting the mushroom extract didn't gain much weight and their gut bacteria was like that of a thin mouse. While those getting only the high fat diet gained weight and when fed feces from the mice getting the extract their gut bacteria changed to be like that of thin mice.Callers
