    The Healthiest Foods On Earth

    The most important consideration in constructing a healthy diet: Eat whole food with minimal processing. These 12 foods do the trick.
    In Depth: The Healthiest Foods On Earth


    Jonny Bowden



    What is the best diet for human beings?

    Vegetarian? Vegan? High-protein? Low-fat? Dairy-Free?

    Hold on to your shopping carts: There is no perfect diet for human beings. At least not one that's based on how much protein, fat or carbohydrates you eat.

    People have lived and thrived on high-protein, high-fat diets (the Inuit of Greenland); on low-protein, high-carb diets (the indigenous peoples of southern Africa); on diets high in raw milk and cream (the people of the Loetschental Valley in Switzerland); diets high in saturated fat (the Trobriand Islanders) and even on diets in which animal blood is considered a staple (the Massai of Kenya and Tanzania). And folks have thrived on these diets without the ravages of degenerative diseases that are so epidemic in modern life--heart disease, diabetes, obesity, neurodegenerative diseases, osteoporosis and cancer.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I'm Scandi. The best diet for me is dairy, meat, salad veggies, and berries with a few nuts.

    What's wrong for me: fruit, starchy carbs in excess, and sugar.
