    This is how subliminal messaging is toxic. Dr speaks about the importance of vegetables. Mayo clinic shows pictures of fish and chicken. Speaks about the Mediterranean diet not about consuming vegetables. Fish and chicken are not Mediterranean diet foods. Italians rarely if ever eat chicken and they only eat fish if they are near the sea. Even then it is not every day. Vegetables, grains, legumes this is the Mediterranean diet. Mayo clinic promoting sickness with their images and mixed messages. This is common criminal behavior in hospitals

    Meat like that you show in this video actually increases inflammation in the brain. Eat legumes instead.
