Steve Jobs, the founder of
apple, was a vegetarian. When he learned that he had cancer, he refused surgery and believed in his faith. He implemented a strict vegetarian diet and ate a lot of fresh carrots and juice.
for a while, he was influenced by a doctor who promoted natural therapy. He advocated using organic herbs, cutting off fruit and vegetable juice, often washing intestines and hydrotherapy, and venting all his negative emotions.
in the treatment of cancer, many doctors attributed jobs’ pancreatic cancer to his vegetarianism and suggested that he eat some animal protein. Although jobs finally began to choose to eat some animal protein, but still did not save his life.
I believe that many people feel strange: nutrition experts clearly suggest that we eat a light diet and eat more vegetables and fruits. Steve Jobs did so. Why would he get cancer?
first of all, we must be clear that vegetarianism does have certain benefits to the body.
first, plant-based food has less toxins, and contains rich nutrients necessary for the human body, which helps to remove the garbage in the body, reduce the burden on the stomach and intestines, and play a role in strengthening the body. Second, fresh vegetables and fruits have a high antioxidant effect, which helps to slow down the aging speed of various organs of the body, make the skin more glossy and elastic, and prolong life.
third, the protein consumption of meat in the human body is 1.5 times that of vegetarian food. Excessive protein will be converted into fat, causing obesity, diabetes, hypertension and other diseases. Therefore, vegetarian diet can help reduce cholesterol, reduce inflammation and prevent a variety of chronic diseases.
therefore, there is always a dish of vegetables on the Chinese table. Some fitness experts eat more vegetarian than meat every day. But why do some vegetarians get cancer so easily?
we should know that diet is an important influencing factor of health, but not a decisive factor. There are many inducing factors of cancer, including diet, heredity, environment and virus infection. So we can’t generalize. Jobs loves to eat fruits and vegetables. Although it reduces the risk of cancer to a certain extent, it has something to do with his genetic and living habits.
after learning more about jobs’ life, some researchers found that jobs may have buried cancer risks in his youth. In 1970, as a high school student, jobs entered an electronic manufacturing enterprise to weld circuit boards in order to subsidize his family. The components of circuit boards contained lead, tin and other metals, which were harmful to health. In 1973, jobs decided to become a vegetarian when he developed kidney stones on a high protein diet in college. After work, because of his focus on his career, jobs worked day and night, and working all night was a common thing All this is closely related to jobs’ cancer later. After “spkds” and “spkds”, jobs was not used to eating spkds and spkds. However, for cancer patients with low immunity, it is not enough to support the body to fight against the disease by simply relying on vegetarianism. On the contrary, it will cause nutritional imbalance. What’s more, jobs is still working at the same time, and his physical strength is even more unbearable.
three misunderstandings about vegetarianism These errors of vegetarianism not only affect some celebrities, but also cause trouble to many ordinary people.
misunderstanding 1: Vegetarianism is not only eating fruits and vegetables.
are vegetarians, semi vegetarians, fish vegetarians, and milk and eggs. In other words, vegetarianism is not equal to not eating meat at all, but more emphasis on balanced diet, less meat and more fruits and vegetables. The principle of vegetarianism should adhere to a light diet, but it should not be stained with meat and fishy smell, otherwise it will eat something wrong. The second mistake of
: vegetarianism can reduce blood lipid. Some people think that if you eat more meat, your blood fat will be higher, so if you want to reduce blood fat, you should be more vegetarian. But you’ll find that even if you’ve been vegan, the blood fat doesn’t seem to come down? What went wrong?
in fact, high blood fat is not entirely caused by eating meat, protein and carbohydrate will also produce calories, and the excess of total calories will be converted into fat. The lack of B vitamins in
will also affect fat metabolism. Some vegetarians may even lead to excessive fat intake, such as nuts such as melon seeds, peanuts and walnuts, and drinks such as sugar water, cake and milkshake. If you add a lot of cooking oil in the cooking process, it will also lead to high blood fat. Therefore, we should not simply think that eating vegetarian can reduce blood fat, but should insist on eating less food with high fat and high cholesterol.
misunderstandings 3: vegetarian diet can reverse the formation of fatty liver
, which is closely related to the reduction of protein synthesis, which is related to the unreasonable diet structure, such as long-term drinking, excessive nutrition, malnutrition, etc.
therefore, vegetarianism can not reverse fatty liver, single vegetarian diet will lead to nutritional imbalance, affect the liver lipid metabolism, leading to high calorie fatty liver. The diet of patients with fatty liver should adhere to reasonable diet collocation, control the total intake, control the mouth and open the legs.
are not suitable for all people.
is a double-edged sword, both good and bad. Especially for the following people, long-term vegetarianism is very harmful to the body.
are anemic people. People with anemia need more protein and iron, and meat contains more of these two nutrients. Therefore, people with anemia should eat red meat appropriately, not just vegetables, otherwise anemia symptoms will be aggravated.
are the elderly and the weak, such as children, the elderly, pregnant women and other groups, they themselves need a lot of nutrition supplement. If they are vegetarian for a long time, the body’s nutrition will not be supplemented, which will easily affect the growth and development of children, induce abortion of pregnant women, and cause osteoporosis in the elderly.
three is the postoperative recovery of patients, some people after the operation appetite is not good, want to eat some light, unexpected more eat more problems. It turns out that after surgery, the growth and healing of the body tissue need a lot of protein, which can’t be met only by vegetarian diet. Therefore, we should eat meat appropriately, otherwise it will affect the wound healing and disease recovery.
seeing here, some people are confused: Vegetarianism will lead to cancer, but not vegetarianism will also lead to cancer. What do you want me to do? What we mean by vegetarianism is to eat properly, not to eat meat for a long time. True vegetarians pay attention to balanced nutrition, rather than blindly thinking that they can only eat vegetables and fruits. Who can stand up to this?
