    Launch of Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritional Research Project

    Hi folks,

    Fuhrman: Official Launch of the Nutritional Research Project

    Over 20 years of experience, more than 10,000 patients, and thousands of case histories have demonstrated that through nutrition we can prevent, treat and reverse the effects of degenerative disease processes. Nutritional excellence saves lives - we know this. Yet, while our society is facing epidemics of chronic degenerative diseases (including diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disease, stroke, dementia and cancer), the major health organizations such as NIH, NCI, WHO and other health policy makers have failed to adequately fund studies in nutritional science that demonstrate the critical role nutrition plays in the prevention and treatment of these diseases.

    The Nutritional Research Project (NRP) website has now been launched! We are dedicated to nutritional science because everyone deserves to know about effective, non-drug treatments to recover their health.

    Get Involved Today and keep up to date:
    ? Donate Now
    ? Join our mailing list for updates, events and volunteer opportunities
    ? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter(@NutritionalRP) and ask your friends to join us
    ? Come to the Launch Party , December 8th in NYC

    Your involvement will be critical to the success of the NRP. However much you are able to give in support of this groundbreaking research, your tax-deductible gift is very important to us. This year we must raise one million dollars to conduct a major study on heart disease—the leading cause of death in the United States. Future studies will include the impact of a high nutrient density (HND) diet in cancer prevention and survival, migraines, autoimmune disease, and as a therapy for macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

    Please follow us and share this with your friends and family.

    With your help we can create a new model of health care. We can make disease prevention the cornerstone of this model and patients will have the opportunity to choose a complete recovery over a future dimmed by disability, disease, and toxic drugs. We must fund and publish scientific studies so that the medical profession and our society will be able to appreciate, investigate and utilize the rewards of therapeutic nutrition in preventing and treating disease.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    I don't get it. It does not seem like there is much new to prove or study, that has not been done and been ignored. Pubmed is packed with years of research studies that reveal what this group hopes to do yet one more time.

    You've got less than a third of the population interested in better diet, the rest have chosen obesity and disease. Even in that 1/3 that is not highly overweight, there is just a very small percentage that eats healthy now and exercises.

    The nature of the "food" business, and restaurants, hospitals and health insurance all ignore current knowldedge and research. We even have a weight loss industry that wants people to fail but to keep on trying so they can make more money.

    Every American now has the right to eat as much as they want and get sick from it as they choose. Food addicts, obesity addicts. Addicted to salt, addicted to fat that they carry and they eat. Entertainment at their fingertips, from a couch, with food at their fingertips, too.

    Some HMO's ought to weigh people twice a year, and increase their premiums or raise their deductibles and co-payments with weight gain increments of some kind, or loss of fitness. That might motivate some to lose weight and exercise, if otherwise they had can't afford health coverage.

    Slim healthy people need less healthcare, eat less, may even buy less. Its bad business.

    You have to keep doing research even though it seems that your theory has been proven. Someone will always do a study that seems to contradict the best advice. And even if a perfectly wonderful and accurate study has been done in 1982, for instance, someone will always pooh pooh it and say yes, but it was done in 1982 and I saw someone on Oprah say differently.
