Fundamental Health with Paul Saladino, MD

Jun 11, 2021

Almond milk seems to be all the rage right now, but is this stuff really something we should be consuming or feeding to our children?

Heck no!

In this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts (the Friday installment of my podcast, Fundamental Health), I talk about the multiple reasons why nut milks are horrendous...

Carrageenan (worsens diabetes?!) and oxalates are the two big issues I cover in this video, but there are many reasons to leave seeds (seeds, nuts, grain, legumes are all seeds!) out of your diet and go #AnimalBased."

Notably, I don't even go into the fact that Almonds use a HUGE amount of water and are an abysmal way for us to use this resource in farming...

And no, cows don't use a ton of water- those stats you've heard don't account for the rainwater that would have fallen on the land anyway. This is a post for another day!

Leave out seeds, and leafy greens. Focus on animal organs and meat (@heartandsoilsupplements) and the least toxic plant foods, and thrive!
