Day 257- Nutrition Bite

"A major ingredient in the recipe for getting cancer is a diet high in refined sugar, and high in unhealthy fats, particularly omega-6 fatty acids and saturated fats."

- Keith I. Block, M.D

Sugar Preacher's Experience

I recently watched the "King Corn." "King Corn" is a documentary about the political, environmental, and health implications of the corn agribusiness. In "King Corn" I discovered that a corn fed t-bone has approximately 9 grams of saturated fat compared to 3 grams in the same size grass fed t-bone. Maybe the increase in cancer is related to the increase in saturated fats and refined sugars in our diet!
