In this episode, The Great Nutrition Hoax: How millions of Americans are making their health worse with food that never rots!
I’m going to explain why eating food that never rots, will shorten your life. I’m going to explain why nutrition experts always conflict with each other, after all, the science they use ain’t even human; it’s rat and animals.
- A preservative is actually an antibiotic designed to lengthen shelf life and shorten yours
- Foods to avoid with the Highest Glycemic Index Diabetes Experts don’t get
- Counting carbohydrates will kill you, eat more high quality fat
- Why we have a hunter-gatherer genome, and why we need to feed it
I am really excited to start you on this journey and I hope to add a lot of value to your life as a whole.
Industrial Factory Foods
It is remarkable when nutrition experts tell us to eat less processed foods. We all know that. But did you know that Industrial foods are processed foods? Frustrated?
You have to understand that eating fewer processed foods means eating fewer industrial foods. What are Industrial foods? Anything made using industrial methods. Anything made in laboratories with there laced chemical ingredients. Factory farms provide a perfect example of such a method; I hate to be the guy to tell ya. But the foods from the Agricultural Age are grown on a farm, or herded on a ranch- just like when our ancestors hunted and gathered in the wild. You see, we have used fire to cook since the inception of man, and pounded our meat to tenderize the product; that is all well and good. In truth, industrial foods are foods like Twinkies and Wonder Bread are the real problem, which no nutritionist denies.
And that lead us to Dynamism Biohack #2: Avoid Industrial Factory Foods.
In this training, I’m going to explain why eating food that never rots, will shorten your life. I’m gonna discuss why rat and animal research for nutrition, may not be the most accurate science for humanity. So what is? Find out next.
Rule to Remember: The tricky food industry calls it a preservative. Essentially, it is an antibiotic designed to lengthen the shelf life and shorten yours. This is all you need to know about preservatives, if the “food” you are eating does not rot, it is not food.
These foods are a poison you need to avoid. These include preservatives that are added to the food. These types of chemicals are added to the food product to kill off bacteria or fungus that would shorten the life of the product. The food industry calls them preservatives, but they are really antibiotics.
Other chemicals used to enhance texture, colour, odour, and flavour also make it difficult for good bacteria to thrive. You see, stop being a germaphobic, We need good bacteria, its essential to human life, we are animated earth.
So let me give you this tip, If the food is at an American gas station, it is highly processed; stay away from it. Simply put, the longer the shelf life of what you are eating, the shorter yours will be.

Dr. David Perlmutter often gives lectures about nutrition to members of the medical community. 1 In one of his presentations He shows what he calls, the four most common Western staple foods:
He shows a Slice of whole wheat bread, Snickers Bar, Tablespoons of white sugar, and A banana. He then asks the medical doctors in the audience about what they think which food holds the greatest surge in blood sugar or which has the highest glycemic index. Now, for anyone who studied just a tiny bit of nutrition, knows the answer to that. I mean, my 3rd grader knows. Not to put pressure on you or them, but, I’m just saying…
So guess what happened? Nine out of ten, the medical doctors pick the wrong food.
In case you are wondering. The slice of whole wheat bread has the highest glycemic index, followed by the table sugar, the Snickers bar, and the banana, respectively.
Alarming! What’s worst, we have known for more than 30 years that a slice of whole wheat bread increases blood sugar more than table sugar, but we still somehow think that it is impossible because the guy we see for our diabetes doesn’t even know that fact?
Am I getting through to you yet? How is that possible, the diabetes expert doesn’t even know that. So what is the first staple food to eliminate if your a diabetic? Yeah, the bread!
The fact is, few foods produce as much of a surge in blood glucose, as those made with wheat. Perlmutter makes it clear, “The bottom line is that if you want to reduce oxidative stress and the action of free radicals, or the stuff harming your brain, you have to lessen the glycation of proteins or the bonding of the sugar molecules to a protein; by eliminating wheat and gluten.
In other words, the availability of sugar must diminish. There are remarkable case studies in the literature, involving people transforming their lives and promoting health through the total elimination of gluten from their diets, along with a new appreciation for good fats instead of carbohydrates. They involve people recovering from depression, chronic fatigue, type-II diabetes, obsessive compulsive behavior, brain fog and bipolar disorder.
How your doctor can sit there and deny this, is beyond me. I don’t get it. It is so frustrating, except that my 3rd grader knows more than a medical doctor knows when it comes to nutrition.
I sound like I am being rude. I am simply stating an objective fact. I need you to understand that.
Let me put it to you this way. You wouldn’t ask your medical doctor to treat a dental problem. You would ask your dentist. Don’t ask your medical doctor who is a doctor of medicine, a nutrition question, or a musculoskeletal problem. You would ask your natural health doctor or your chiropractor. Got it?
So, I had a patient the other day, she is still counting carbohydrates. Now, they don’t even know what a carbohydrate is. But there doctor suggested it. Really…
Okay. Now that’s the 19th century at it’s best. Carbohydrates. We got that science from rats; too.
The question remain for the human genome, and not the rat genome, as to whether or not carbohydrates are a dietary requirement for humans. Surprisingly, we can survive on a minimal amount of carbohydrates; virtually zero, in fact.
Our liver can furnish it as needed, but we cannot go long without fat. Our culture believes that if you eat fat, you will be fat. It has been the prevailing belief system for the last 50 years, and it is wrong. In fact, obesity has nothing to do with dietary fat consumption. Okay, hold on here….
The metabolic consequences of obesity have everything to do with our addiction to carbohydrates. In fact, that addiction may very well cause a stress response as you read these words, due to pop culture, rat science, and misconception the past 50 or so years.
Not only is this true for fat, but it is also true for cholesterol. I won’t get too deep into the myth of cholesterol. For now, just know that eating high cholesterol has no impact on our actual cholesterol levels.
In fact, Dr. Mark Hyman, one of the world’s leading functional medicine doctors, and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books would tell you that the alleged correlation between high cholesterol and higher cardiac risk is an absolute fallacy.
He will tell you, that The advice you may be receiving from your doctor may very well be putting you at an increasing cardiac risk.
Again, If you like this training, please punch that like button, or if this is life changing for you, hit that love button. And by all means hit that share button, so more people can benefit from this. Of all the lessons from this training, I hope you understand that there is a difference between species; the blueprint written on the genome of a species is unique for that species. Extrapolating data from one species to another may work in a lab, but not in reality. In fact, never in reality.
I covered this extensively in a Facebook Live video I did, called Animal Research, so check that one out.
Bottom line. Respect the human genome. Respect your genome. Fat- not carbohydrates- is the preferred fuel for human metabolism, and has been for all of the human evolution. What a lab rat scientist may attempt to extrapolate for humanity matters not.
Regarding health-promotion, we have consumed a high-fat diet for the past millennium, and it is only since the advent of agriculture roughly ten millennium ago that carbohydrates have become abundant in our food supply.
So write down this tip. We still have a hunter-gatherer genome. Our current science and methodology are stuck in 18th-century rat science, even though we have discovered the genome, proving that each species have differing genetic requirements.2
Each protein which makes up the building blocks at a molecular level of each species differs remarkably.
It is a mistake to focus our attention on the minuscule percentage of bio-molecular pathways that seem to be similar between differing genomes- just as it was a mistake to label everything with the cliché that something is genetic.
In fact, most everything we are talking about has environmental or epigenetic switches, which you and I get to control with our conscious choices about how well we use our Five Pillars of a Dynamic Health. Even the most conservative geneticist will tell you that an 80 % up to a 97% of our genes are controlled by our environment, how well you eat, move, think, connect, and cope with stressors in our environment.
So, thanks to the newer science, we know rat science, is not a golden standard to determine human nutrition from rats or any other animal.
I propose and highly recommend that we as a human civilization shift our thinking into human health-promotion, based on how our human genome has evolved and adapted for since mankind was first placed on earth (despite what someone thinks they have proven on a rat).
At this point, it is the only viable and evidence-based solution. We had 100 plus years studying animals for the pursuant of sickness and pathology. Lets shift our focus and include healthology. a term not yet in the dictionary, or the study of health. and lets use healthy people as the benchmark for that research, not sick people. That is The big idea for this training when we talk about wellness and prevention, the health promotion solution; that’s dynamism.
