The Starch Queens are all about Starch- What’s with all this talk about Starch not breaking down? High Quality Starch In a culture that has become carbohydrate-phobic, a very important aspect of human biology has been shoved into the shadows. That happens to be our digestive system. We hear a lot about gluten, and too many phytates, and how hard it is for us to break down cellulose. But we digest starch just fine. And this is because we are a part of the animal kingdom that produces the enzyme amylase while we chew. Carnivores do not. Ever hear the term: digestion begins in the mouth? Amylase is the reason. Our pancreas also produces amylase, which helps us to efficiently break down sugars. Our tongue seeks out carbohydrate on purpose. The problem is that we’ve become too fond of processed starch. If you look at the expanse of human dietary history, starches have been central to the diet, whether if be yam or potato, poi, corn, or basmati rice. Even the Paleo crowd has begun to see the light when it comes to traditional vegetable starches. So, if you’re trying to go plant based, but have become convinced that traditional whole starches are to be avoided for some reason, please reconsider. You might be missing out a beneficial fiber source and sound supply of energy.
John McDougall MD discusses the process of cancer growth, and shows that prevention through a healthy diet and lifestyle is the only defense, and "early detection" is BS. This is an excerpt from Dr. McDougall's talk at the 2016 Expo.

READ ME --- Today I wanted to try and see if I could use my 23andMe results #NotSpons to find my EDS chromosome variant. I already know which one it is from formal medical diagnoses but that was an extremely lengthy and expensive process, could these DNA kits provide the same answers in a speedier and more affordable way? We're left with a "maybe"? There's a lot of information provided; although it's accuracy is questionable, it did say I have EDS, but the chromosome variant they listed was off by one letter. Confusing. To repeat what I said in the video, I wouldn't take these results as an official diagnosis of anything, a lot of the information provided is about your genetic likelihood of having certain conditions. I just hope this process can be used as a tool for people needing some back up or direction in their medical spaces. Maybe something comes up you've never heard of before and after investigation, you find that it fits! You can then bring this up to your doctor! Maybe doctors have refused to start a testing process (it happened to me) and these results could persuade them that it's a possibility. I really hope this is useful for those still with chronic illness and undiagnosed! 23andMe Referral link: https://refer.23andme.com/s/annieesegarra Ancestry https://www.ancestry.com GenesforGood http://genesforgood.sph.umich.edu/ THE SHIRT I'M WEARING is by Bree Mae https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/1656931-accessibility-matters-rainbow Also in black and white on Bonfire: https://www.bonfire.com/accessibilitymatters/ SUPPORT THIS CREATOR If you enjoy my videos, please consider supporting this channel!

Tim Kaufman was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) in his early twenties. He was in chronic pain most of his life. By the time he had reached the age of 37 he was addicted to Fentynal, alcohol, and fast food. At over 400 pounds he was unable to perform simple daily tasks. He had many chronic health issues and was almost immobile. He had lost his interest in life and had almost given up. Tim started a journey to regain his health. He started to change one small thing at a time. He is now an athlete that thrives on a plant-based whole food lifestyle and leads a healthy, happy, productive, and very active life that is free of all medications he was once on. His passion is to spread the message that anyone can transition to a healthy, active lifestyle and dramatically change their life regardless of their current situation or size.
Tim has appeared on Podcasts from around the world and has been filmed for an upcoming movie. He has been featured in Runners World Magazine, Good Morning America, Today, People, The Buffalo Newspaper, and many other media outlets.
Tim uses his platform as an international speaker to educate, inform and motivate people about plant-based nutrition, fitness, addiction recovery, overcoming physical challenges, and emotional and spiritual wellness.
