Amazon Tribe Has World's Heaithiest Arteries

10 posts in this topic

Indigenous South American group has healthiest arteries of all populations yet studied.

An 80 year old from the Tsimane (pronounced chee-MAH-nay) group had the same vascular age as an American in their mid-fifties, suggests a new report. The Tsimane people -- a forager-horticulturalist population of the Bolivian Amazon -- have the lowest reported levels of vascular aging for any population, with coronary atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) being five times less common than in the US, the research shows.

But yeah, theoretically the less processed food, the better. 

Then you find out how they feed animals and you decide that maybe vegetables are healthier. 

Then you learn about what ends up in our soils and groundwaters, from which veggies draw nutrients, and understand that it's probably nigh impossible to have real healthy food in our Western world. 

 

And then you realise that a big mac is not so bad after all.

Agreed.  Nature has never been a synonym for purity.

So much bad science in that.

When the body doesnt get enough Omega-3 it produces LDL from combining saturated fat with glucose. You don't lower bad cholesterol by starving yourself of saturated fat. Saturated fat is an essential nutrient which is the main building block of all your bodies cells. Starving yourself of it causes accelerated aging.

You instead reduce LDL by eating enough Omega-3. A pint of whole cows milk contains as much Omega-3 as a portion of oily fish. Low and behind the people drinking it have low LDL not high.

Well the alcohol in the beer would kill the germs in the spit.  No comment on the other subject.
