SUBJECT: Nutritionist Warns Against Suicide Diet

Most modern day Americans are practically committing suicide with their diets, lack of exercise and shallow breathing, according to a prominent nutritionist and author of 22 health and fitness books.

"Americans are killing themselves by the millions with their knives, forks and spoons," Patricia Bragg (http://www.bragg.com) said. "With their two hands, homemakers can prepare either for health or sickness."

But eating a healthy diet and having a strong healthy heart are not difficult goals, she said, and living a healthy life-style with healthy foods can dramatically extend life and vitality. "It's so simple anybody can do it," she said. Many recent medical reports agree!

Refined, processed foods should be avoided. Meats should be avoided or limited to no more than two times a week. Bragg leans towards a healthy vegetarian diet- and believes more Americans should follow the low fat diet common in Asian countries where obesity is nearly unknown and cancer, heart and other diseases occur far less than in the U.S. The traditional Asian diet consists of rice, wheat, potatoes, soybeans, corn and other starchy vegetables and greens - and few meat or milk products.

Regular exercise is also essential. Fast walking is the king of exercise and 30 to 40 minutes a day does miracles for your body.

Bragg, the author and coauthor of numerous books was in Las Vegas this weekend promoting the Bragg Healthy Life-style, a series of health theories first proposed by her father, Paul C. Bragg, who she said was the early pioneer in the nutritional foods movement and the originator of Health Food Stores over 80 years ago.

Bragg signed copies of her health books at the National Nutritional Foods Association Convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Her father was the founder of this association of Health Stores and Heath Food Suppliers.

In addition to food, Bragg said she is concerned about everything from proper posture and the use of fluoride and chemicals in drinking water to the amount of violence on T.V., movies and in commercials and on our streets,in schools and our homes!

"I don't just work with nutrition, I work with the total body," she said.

She is also against the use of pesticides and tries to eat only organically grown fruits and vegetables and encourages everyone to go organic and encourage their local markets to stock organic produce!

"We are what we eat and drink," she said "It's a proven fact that a lot of pesticides are carcinogens and cancer is now almost at epidemic proportions in America".

The National Cancer Institute says that one in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer. The risks from pesticides and dioxins, which add new dimensions to the prevalence of cancer, did not exist in past generations. For example, Americans born during the 1940's have a 50 - 100% higher risk of cancers than their grandparents, according to a 1994 report in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association.


The United States Surgeon General warned Americans in a landmark 1988 report on Nutrition and Health that "diet-related diseases account for 68% of U.S. deaths."
