Diet Research

Well, after suffering through 17 kidney stones, gout, high blood pressure and bad cholesterol I thought it was high time I started to understand what is really wrong with me.

My biggest guess is that it has a lot to do with what I am putting in my mouth each day. So I am going to update this page to keep track of all the information I come across.

One thing to note many vegans are very environmentally “crazy” … I mean conscience I choose to fast forward through the rants … I mean “discussions” and focus on my health.

Topics to explore:

Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study

” The KIHD Study is an ongoing prospective population-based cohort study designed to investigate risk factors for CVD, atherosclerosis and related outcomes in middle-aged men from eastern Finland, the population with one of the highest recorded rates of CHD.” (Source)
