On today's show, Irving A. Cohen, MD, MPH,
a recognized expert in disease prevention, will offer information
about a highly effective way to diet.
According to the government, two out of three
adults are overweight and most of them will make some attempt to
lose weight this year. Unfortunately, most will fail and end up
blaming themselves. Yet, the reason they will fail is not because
they are either weak-willed or lazy. It is because the commonly
accepted diet advice pushed by the government is wrong and is
largely to blame for the current obesity epidemic. Before the
government started handing out bad advice, only about one out of
seven American adults was overweight. Since the Federal government
has succeeded in getting people to believe this wrong advice, two
out of three people are now overweight.
Dr. Cohen discusses how a natural diet, avoiding
certain additives, and proportioning the right types of food,
allows a dieter to lose weight without feeling constantly hungry.
He explains how this can benefit people already suffering from
hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and other diseases. He also
discusses how many of these diseases can be prevented by avoiding
certain additives and processed foods. He explains the connection
between this modern diet and ancient weight-loss
