A Candida Diet: Eggs vs. Meat


Steak with EggsWhen Candida sufferers first start on a good Candida diet which does not include very much animal protein other than organic eggs, a lot claim fear that the eggs will present them with either higher cholesterol levels or they’re afraid that they’ll develop heart problems, or both.

The American Society for Clinical Nutrition reported that, for a period of 8 years, the Framingham Study investigated “the effect of host and environmental factors on the development of coronary heart disease.” The study reported the following, “no relationship between egg intake and coronary heart disease incidence was found.”

If you develop heart problems during the period of time that you are ingesting eggs, this does not mean that the eggs caused the problem. For one thing, eggs are never the only food a person eats, and there are always many other factors involved when a heart problem is present. In a study reported by The Journal of the American Medical Association, the comparable ratios for the causes of heart problems were as follows: 4.6 for stress, 2.7 for diet, 2.0 for tobacco, 1.7 for heredity, 1.3 for obesity, and 1.0 for lack of physical exercise. As you can see by this report, normally there is a combination of factors responsible for heart disease.

According to a particular publication by The Harvard School of Public Health in 2006, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. Quote: “The only large study to look at the impact of egg consumption on heart disease—not on cholesterol levels or other intermediaries—found no connection between the two.” This was quoted from, the publication, “News from Harvard Health: Egg Nutrition and Heart Disease: Eggs aren’t the dietary demons they’re cracked up to be.”

Lecithin, a wonder supplement? A natural supplement by the name of “lecithin” is marketed for the purpose of lowering cholesterol levels. Lecithin does this by allowing cholesterol to connect to lipoproteins which in turn cause cholesterol to be expelled from various tissues in the body.

According to one report by the University of Michigan Health System, lecithin is one of the most common natural supplements used to treat high cholesterol in patients. The reason was explained in this manner; once in your body, lecithin aids in reducing the amount of Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol, and elevates your High-density Lipoprotein (HDL), or your good cholesterol.

According to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the major function of the B vitamin choline is to manufacturer neurotransmitters referred to as acetylcholine. These are the neurotransmitters which are responsible for healthy brain function. So according to this, without the presence of lecithin, there would be little choline available for producing the healthy functioning of the brain. Did you get your lecithin today?

The way lecithin is collected for use in supplements is by extracting the substance from soy beans and egg yolks.

Those who eat eggs on a regular basis have shown a decrease in the risk of developing cataracts.

Red Meat; oh the stories we read.  Have you ever heard of a rancher who raised beef for the purpose of selling to meat processing plants refusing to eat beef? Well if not, then you haven’t met Howard Lyman, also known as “the mad cowboy.”

Of all the people on earth, it was a fourth generation cattle rancher who first brought the oh-so-real dangers of beef to the public. After becoming more and more aware of the dangers his business was bringing to the general public’s diet, he sold his ranch and decided to become a vegetarian. Afterwards he stated that, he used to love his steaks as much as the next person, and then added, “but if you knew what I know about what goes into them (beef steaks) and what they can do to you, you’d probably be a vegetarian like me.”

Lyman himself was a victim of the regular American cattle ranchers diet being overweight, diagnosed with a spinal tumor, and very high cholesterol levels; but after cutting meat from his diet, Lyman lost 130 pounds in weight and lowered his cholesterol by over 150 points. Lyman admitted that, for years he was aware of the fact that he was poisoning his animals and polluting his farms.

So what exactly is the problem with beef? “Problem”? Let’s go with “problems.” The number of problems caused by red meat is, well, frankly, nothing less than staggering.

Time magazine’s “Health and Family” reported, “It’s no secret that red meat can be harmful to our health.”

Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health explained that a diet of red meat was responsible for hastening one’s death. In fact, the same researchers reported that, eating “additional single serving of meat a day, about the size of a deck of cards, contributed to a 13% increased risk of dying.”

A senior editor at Harvard School of Public Health stated that, leaning more towards a more plant based diet would “substantially reduce the risk of chronic disease and the risk of premature death.”

According to statistics, over half, or 55% of the US manufactured antibiotics are given to livestock, not humans.

Around 350,000 pesticide products are registered in America, many of which are used on the plants/grains which are fed to agricultural animals such as beef cattle. Over 1 billion tons of pesticides are used within the United States every year, and reportedly, 80% of these pesticides are used by the agricultural community.

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), a specific amount of a given pesticide can remain in cattle feed as well as our food. The amount allowed depends on the specific feed or food.

    Does this same information on Beef apply to Buffalo. What about Organic or grass fed with no added hormones etc. I felt safe eating organic or grass fed chicken and beef or buffalo. However, if we eat organic or grass fed, how can we be sure the grass or wheat they are eating is not full of pesticides. Are there brands that have a certification or certain companies that guarantee this? Is is the NON GMO I have to look for on my meats now. I do not usually see this on meats.
