I am more and more convinced that when it comes to healthy food, one size does fit all. I read and hear others talking about metabolic typing, blood types and other human produced complicated theories of how people should eat. The reality is that when you think about it, these diet theories that are relatively recent in terms of human history, don’t stand the test of time. How did the human species survive for thousands of years without metabolic testing or without labs to determine your blood type?!
Dr. Neal Barnard, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is one of many educated and knowledgeable researchers telling us plant based eating is healthy for all of us.
Foods and Immunity
Fats impair immunity, and cutting fat out of the diet helps strengthen the immune defenses against cells that turn cancerous. Researchers in New York tested the effect of low-fat diets on immunity. They put healthy volunteers on a diet that limited fat content to 20 percent, reducing all fats and oils—not just saturated or unsaturated fats. Three months later, the researchers took blood samples from the volunteers and examined their natural killer cells. The natural killer cell activity was greatly improved.
Although vegetable oils are far superior to animal fats for heart patients, when it comes to the immune system, vegetable oils are no better than animal fats. In experiments, researchers have found that when they infuse soybean oil intravenously into volunteers, their white blood cells no longer work as well, and test-tube experiments show similar results.
Likewise, omega 3 fatty acids, which are found in fish oils, green vegetables, and soybean, flax seed, and canola oils, also compromise immune function. The bottom line on fats and oils is to greatly reduce your intake of all of them.
It should come as no surprise that vegetarians have stronger immune systems than do meat-eaters. Studies of white blood cell samples from vegetarians have shown them to have more than double the cancer cell-destroying ability of their non-vegetarian counterparts.
