Are you confused by the revelations of various studies? Understanding what is being compared can help a great deal!
But so many studies say that fish is good for you...
We've all been there. We hear one thing and we accept it because it makes sense. But then, we hear something that contradicts it and we're left confused. Some of us may end up giving up because we don't know what to believe in, others may put their faith in the wrong information, and some might do a bit of research to eliminate the conclusions that are partial or exaggerated.
So is fish good for you or not?
Perhaps! In comparison to a Standard American Diet, it is better to have a little fish. However, when compared with those on a vegetarian or vegan diet, does eating fish have any benefits? These are the types of scenarios in which results can be misrepresented and delivered as the whole picture, when they're far from it!
Watch this short video to find out what Dr. Mehta has to say about comparison and context.
“My diet is a whole food, plant based or vegan diet. So, basically I want you to eat whole grains, legumes, tonnes of vegetables and fruits, nuts and seeds. No meat whatsoever, and no processed foods. It’s amazing what it can do for your body, and it reduces your risk for chronic disease.”
