Dr. Fuhrman: Eat To Live. Is Prescription Medication Dangerous to your Health?

MelatoninIn the PBS special Eat To Live!,  Dr. Joel Fuhrman, board-certified family physician,  nutritional researcher, and bestselling author explains how we can reverse heart disease, diabetes, and ease our cancer concerns by using food as medicine instead of treating disease with drugs!… Dr. Fuhrman goes on to explain that actual long term prescription drug treatments and some common modern medical procedures not only are not always effective, but may not prevent death! Based on scientific fact, Fuhrman says the best way to completely reverse chronic disease to the point of no longer needing medication is by adopting his “Nutritarian Diet”. Why are drug treatments not effective in the long term and are dangerous to your health?Dr. Fuhrman says he cannot emphasize enough that prescription medications including blood pressure lowering and cholesterol-lowering drugs are inadequate to reduce deaths from heart disease and strokes. Among patients taking these drugs, 80 to 90% of heart attacks still occur!  The more medications you need, the higher your risk of a cardiac event of sudden death!  Dr. Fuhrman explains…

  • The vast majority of people over 65 are taking blood pressure lowering medications, making them the most commonly prescribed class of drugs in the United States. Yet these drugs have health risks associated with them that are rarely discussed.
  • Calcium channel blockers a common prescribed class of blood pressure medication have been linked to higher rates of cancer. Long-term use of these drugs were demonstrated to have more than double the risk for getting breast cancer.
  • Many of these women taking calcium channel blockers are also taken statins.  Statins have been shown to also increase the risk of certain breast cancers. A study showed that women aged 55 to 74 who had been on statins for 10 years or more had a more than doubling of the occurrence of invasive breast cancers. Statins also give you muscle aches, fatigue, and make you gain weight.”
  • There is also an increased risk of diabetes. Another study showed a 48% increase in the risk of new onset diabetes associated with statins.

Fuhrman advises us that we are at a significant and unacceptable risk until we have achieved, without medications, a healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose level. That can be completely doable through optimum nutrition. A Nutritarian Diet of nutrient dense natural whole vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds will fit that bill!

When we study various isolated populations around the world, those who live mostly on natural plant food have zero heart disease. A Kitava study, an island nation of 23,000 inhabitants, many 70 to 100 years of age eating natural foods, showed no overweight people, no diabetes, no high blood pressure, no heart disease, no sudden cardiovascular death, no strokes and no dementia!

The results of treating chronic disease with medications do not come close to the almost total protection you get from eating a Nutritarian Diet of natural, nutrient dense foods!
