Whole Grain Cinnamon Raisin Nut Bread

"There is enough evidence now that doctors should be discussing the option of pursuing dietary change as a potential path to cancer prevention and treatment.  There is enough evidence now that the U.S. government should be discussing the idea that the toxicity of our diet is the single biggest cause of cancer.  There is enough evidence now that local breast cancer alliances, and prostate and colon cancer institutions, should be discussing the possibility of providing information to Americans everywhere on how a whole foods, plant-based diet may be an incredibly effective anti-cancer medicine." from the book, The China Study byT. Colin Campbell.
 According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, whole grains contain many components that might lower your risk of cancer, including fiber and antioxidants.  A large study including nearly half a million people found that eating more whole grains might lower the risk of colorectal cancer, making them a tip item in the category of foods to fight cancer.  Oatmeal, barley, brown rice, and whole-wheat bread and pasta are all examples of whole grains.
An analysis, published online Monday in Archives of Internal Medicine, used data from two studies that involved 121,342 men and women who filled out questionnaires about health and diet from 1980 through 2006.  There were 23,926 deaths in the group, including 5,910 from cardiovascular disease and 9,464 from cancer.
But then this morning on MSN home page there is an article titled, "The truth about 12 confusing foods".  Some had truth and some did not.  For example, "Bottom line: Go lean. Look for cuts with “loin” and “round” in the name—and limit yourself to 18 ounces a week. That translates into around six 3-ounce servings."   They are saying it is alright to eat meat.  NOT!  Next, "Not only does research show that eating an egg a day doesn’t increase the risk for heart problems, but new research from the USDA also shows that they contains less cholesterol—185 milligrams in a large one."  Are you kidding me?  Egg yolk is the highest source of Cholesterol of any animal product.  "Research shows" what does that mean?  What research and by who? The egg industry, who is controlled by huge food conglomerates, who control the USDA through lobbying.  And what, are you going to tell me that "Research shows" that Cholesterol has nothing to do with the number one killer in the United States, Heart disease: 599,413 deaths in 2010. And this one really got me, Margarine.  They state that " after it was discovered that some brands contain trans fats—the type that can lower “good” HDL cholesterol while raising “bad” LDL levels—the pendulum swung back toward butter. “These days, manufacturers have changed their products,” says Ginn. “Now, many spreadable margarines are made from healthier vegetable oils like canola.”  Hogwash!  It might be a healthier oil but if it is hydrogenated it creates an immune-damaging synthetic fat and this can elevate blood cholesterol.   This has been taken from an online magazine called Fitbie.  I think a better name might be Fibbie.  Stay away from eggs,  stay away from meat and stay away from margarine.  Plain and simple.  And when you read these articles always question and think about who is paying the advertising 
dollars behind these publications.

Let sit for 15 minutes before slicing into this loaf of love

A masterpiece is born
