The Organic Food Movement—Too Little, Too Late

At the McDougall Program we do not actively teach people to buy organic foods because the immediate health benefits would be imperceptible and the harm to the health of a few participants from this extra requirement would be substantial. Yet, in the McDougall home, we make every effort to buy organic foods for ourselves. And, if you ask me directly, I will tell you to shop for organic foods.  Does this seem like double talk?

My patients are overweight and sick because they have learned to eat, from childhood, the richest diet known to humankind—a diet of animals, oils, and sugars.  Dining for a lifetime on “organically farmed” meat, poultry, fish, cheese, milk, honey, and flour would have caused them the exact same states of poor health.  Along the same lines of thought, switching my patients to conventionally grown potatoes, rice, corn, vegetables, and fruits results in profound improvements in their health in 10-days—organic varieties of these plant foods would have not made a speck of difference.


Comments on my September 2008 Newsletter Article: Our President’s Personal Health Matters

I received about a hundred replies from readers on my assessment of the state of health of our presidential candidates, Obama and McCain.  I very much appreciate the time you took to write me. Among the e-mails sent to me personally and the comments on my discussion board there was not single disagreement with any of the facts I presented or the calculations I made concerning the life expectancy and risk of disability for these two men.  You might think that the clarity and accuracy of this newsletter article would have been universally appreciated.  Guess again.
