    This really works!!! I haven't got sick for 7 years! He didn't mention beer and wine. But 1-3 beers a day is healthy - depending on your genetic makeup.

    "...Eat a healthy diet focused on fresh, whole foods (ideally organic and/or locally grown). Try to eat a large portion of your food raw. You want to pay careful attention to keeping your insulin levels down, which means avoiding sugars and grains of all kinds, and replacing the lost carbs with healthful fats. Also be mindful of your protein sources, making sure they’re of high quality (ideally organically-raised and pasture-fed). A high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet is likely to improve the health of most people.

    Consume healthy fat. The science is loud and clear on this point: omega-3 fats are essential for optimal health. Unfortunately, most fish commercially available today are polluted with mercury, PCBs and other toxic substances, which is why I recommend you take a supplement like krill oil instead of getting it from your food. Other healthy fats include coconut oil, avocados, olives, olive oil, butter and macadamia nuts. All these fats are low in protein and carbs and will not impair insulin, leptin or mTOR.

    Make clean, pure water your primary beverage, and steer clear of all sweetened and/or flavored beverages, including those that contain artificial sweeteners."

    ... Interesting this article also shows buy generic drugs are cheaper then buy drugs using your insurance.

    hm I don't know how I feel about taking Omega 3 from pills, or getting any nutritional benefits from pills really. I rather get it from actual fish. While I understand that fish has mercury in it, it's such a small dosage it wont hurt eating it every now and then, but then again everything in moderation. consuming pills also can damage your kidneys in the long run.

    I totally agree that eating right is the most effective form of health insurance, along with exercise. Like Mesmer, though, I suspect getting nutrients from food is healthier than getting them from pills. Some fish are considerably lower than others in mercury.

    We went through a mercury scare phase way back in the 70s or 80s. I'm glad to see that people are raising this issue again. The problem with mercury is that your body stores it so eating a little every so often is still bad for you in the long run.

    Eating healthfully is good for you, yes.

    But please don't pretend it is anything like health insurance. It's not. It doesn't matter how great your diet is when you get hit by a car and get hospitalized...

    Also, for what it's worth, I can't remember the last time I've been sick, either, and for most of that time I was vegetarian. People just tend to get sick less as they get older and their immune systems strengthen.

    From the looks of it Dr. Mercola is no better than Dr. Oz or Dr. Phil. They're in it for the money and fame. He may be right about the Paleo diet but I'd prefer a more reputable source.
