According to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets composed mostly of plant-based proteins and fats were associated with lower mortality rates overall and lower cardiovascular mortality rates.

The study concludes that a low-carbohydrate diet based on animal sources is associated with higher mortality in both men and women, whereas a vegetable-based low-carbohydrate diet is associated with lower cardiovascular disease mortality rates. In other words, to extend your lifespan, base your diet on plants, and plant-based proteins.

What the report in the Annals of Internal Medicine does not address are the far more potent killers in the American diet: food additives and chemicals that enhance appearance, boost flavor, and extend product shelf life.

A diet rich in plant-based foods from an organic garden is a good beginning on the path to good health, but the real killers in our collective diets are hydrogenated oils, acrylamides, sodium nitrite, enriched bleached flour, high-fructose corn syrup, sugar, and sucrose.

As Mike Adams, editor of NaturalNews notes, to make hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils hydrogenated, “oils are heated in the presence of hydrogen and metal catalysts. This process helps prolong shelf life but simultaneously creates trans fats, which only have to be disclosed on the label if the food contains more than 0.5 grams per serving.

“To avoid listing trans fats, or to claim ‘trans fat free’ on their label, food manufacturers simply adjust the serving size until the trans fat content falls under 0.5 grams per serving. This is how you get modern food labels with serving sizes that essentially equate to a single bite of food.”

No matter how much organic food you eat, we’ve assembled a list of eight foods that if consumed on a regular basis for an extended period, are sure to put you six feet under way before your time.
