100 Days to Health - Day 046 | Cholesterol

Week 7 – Day 46

Tip for the Day

No fruit or vegetable has the ability to manufacture cholesterol. You need a liver to make cholesterol. Therefore, no plant food, including nuts and avocados contain cholesterol, as no plant has a liver. In fact, eating avocados and raw, unsalted nuts on a regular basis actually helps lower cholesterol levels.

The research conducted by Dr Colin Campbell Phd shows that those who consume the most protein and have the highest cholesterol levels are not only prone to the “diseases of affluence” but also show tendencies to get cancer of the colon. Dr Campbell concludes that:;


“We’re basically a vegetarian species and should be consuming a wide variety of plant food and minimizing our intake of animal foods.”


It is clear from Dr. Campbell’s research that humans are a lot healthier if they consume very little or no animal products. Dr. Campbell, who grew up in a farming community and was a big meat eater himself, changed his diet radically as a result of this research. Talk about convincing evidence!
