My mom sent me page 40 of AARP’s “The magazine,” because she was alarmed that the AARP was instructing its seniors to eat more fat. Americans eat too much fat as it is.
The article states that people should eat healthy fats, but then instructs people to eat unhealthy fats from salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, dairy products, oils such as olive, safflower, peanut, and sesame oil (nuts and seeds are fine, but concentrated oils are detrimental to our health, and cause weight gain).
Shame on the AARP for telling its seniors to eat more fat from fish, that contain mercury which is linked to Alzheimer’s; oils, which are concentrated, high-calorie, fatty processed foods, which can induce Type-2 diabetes overnight; and full-fat dairy products, which trigger autoimmune diseases.
The AARP is a lobbying group so they cannot be trusted to give unbiased advice. Lobbyists push legislation that benefits companies that donate to their organization. What seniors need, is to eat more fruits, more vegetables, more beans, more leafy greens, and less fatty foods from oils and animal products.
The AARP does not give good diet, weight loss or health advice. In fact, they promote foods that make people sicker and fatter.
For optimal health, weight, blood pressure, and disease reversal and prevention, everyone should avoid processed foods, oils, dairy and animal flesh.
