Julieanna Hever, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, was on The Dr. Oz Show last week. The video just came online, and it’s well worth watching. The whole thing is about twenty minutes.
The episode involves three overweight women who Dr. Oz locks away for three days, giving them only fresh raw fruits and vegetables. This short experience ends up having an immediate effect on all three women’s blood pressure and triglycerides, and they all managed to lose a few pounds as well.
The last segment of the show features Julieanna Hever showing off three super-easy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that can be eaten daily. She does a marvelous job presenting these foods in an upbeat yet thoroughly informed manner. And it’s obvious that all three women are receptive to switching their eating patterns to embrace the food choices that Hever and Dr. Oz recommend.
Apart from the fact that a zoo gets a big round of promotion from the show, the entire episode is wonderful television. It’s must-viewing for anyone with diet-related health problems like heart disease, obesity, or adult-onset diabetes. Please share this set of videos and contact Dr. Oz to thank his team for running this episode.
So says Marta Fearon, McDonald’s U.S. marketing director.
In McDonald’s world, a sandwich possesses delightful human qualities—whereas the unfortunate animals who go into making this slop are ignored. Link.
Hard to imagine a more healthful sandwich than this.

Rubashkin is the former CEO of Agriprocessors, a company repeatedly shown to brutalize the animals it sent to slaughter. Of course, animal cruelty can’t get anyone sent to prison for decades—it was Rubashkin’s conviction on 86 counts of financial fraud that drew a Madoff-style sentence.
Rubashkin shouldn’t be expecting to receive a Get Out of Jail Free card anytime soon. If the bad faith response the administration has given to marijuana legalization is any guide, nobody in power is taking these White House petitions seriously. Link.

More than 70 ingredients go into each vomitous sandwich. Once upon a time, McDonald’s could get away with selling this dreck without being held accountable—but the internet has changed that forever.
The McRib may well be profitable, but the outpouring of negative publicity intensifies with each reintroduction. I bet it won’t be long before McDonald’s decides the sandwich’s sales aren’t worth the hit to the company’s reputation. (Via Laskawy.) Link.
