Food Is Medicine
In the last centry, American nutritionists, the Campbell father and son, collaborated with Chinese scientists compared the disease spectrum of China and US in the 1980s. He found that the high incidence of diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, cerebrovascular disease and cancer in the US was related to the popularity of fast food high in calories and animal protein and fat, while the incidence of these diseases was very low in China during the same period with a prefominantly plant-based diet.
In the documentary, Dr. Liu and Dr. Hu provided their knowledge and explained why the fast food has many hidden problems and issues to our body.
Jonathan Liu graduated from Hebei Medical University with a Bachelor's degree and Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Master's degree. He is a professor of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Canadian public colleges and he founded Liu's Wisdom Healing Centre. He has been practicing traditional Chinese medicine and health education for 25 years in both China and Canada, and has served the Canadian community for 15 years.
Nai-Wen Hu has been practicing Chinese medicine for decades, looking for effective prescriptions by tracing back to the origins of things. Dr. Hu’s viewpoint is that the method of treatment in Chinese medicine has been that "medicine and food come from the same source", and food is the best medicine for nourishing the body. . "Shen Nong tasted all the herbs" is the earliest origin of "medicine and food come from the same source." Drugs seem to have a strong effect, but are not consumed frequently; food, although ordinary, we cannot part from. Therefore, food is regarded as the best medicine by medical and nutrition experts. The right diet can cure diseases and achieve longevity.
