Dear John,

The U.S. Wellness expresses best Easter wishes from our families to yours. Hopefully, Mother Nature follows Saturday's glorious Spring weather with a repeat today.

Pastures have finally demonstrated signs of converting solar power to green blades of grass with more vigor the past two days driven by warm temps and abundant sunshine

Cereal Killer by author Allan Watson was the book of the week at our household this week. My wife, Nan, picked it up and could not put it down. Seven hours later it was read cover to cover. We think this is a must read by anyone raising a family that fights major food corporation temptations on every trip to the grocery store. Temptation comes in various colors and styles of cardboard packaging and is packed full nutrition that has played a role in the diabetes and obesity epidemic in the U.S. for the last 40 years.

Getting back to high fat and high protein diets is rolling the clock back to the dawn of the 20th century. I find photographs of my paternal ancestors taken in the late 1800's and early 1900's most fascinating. You never see an obese family member. They all appear to be in good health for the rigors of their environment, while raising very large families.

According to writings of my Grandfather Wood, they ate copious amounts of lard and meat proteins. These were the cornerstones of the early 1900's food pyramid. Heart disease caught little attention until the late 1920's. Diabetes was even more rare in 1900.

Author Alan Watson has done an excellent job of making the case for more lard and protein in the human diet to fix a score of ills we have brought on ourselves by swearing off fat and protein. You can purchase Cereal Killer HERE.

    Dear Dr. Serrano,

    In reference to your column today, which vegetables must you cook?

    Thank you,

    Oneonta, NY

    Dear C.A.:

    I thought I knew the answer to this question based on research but, like I have said before, every day I learn something new from my patients. When I tell a patient how good it is to cook a vegetable and this patient comes back and tells me how sick they were after they cooked the vegetable but the raw doesn't do a thing to their stomach, then I am wrong. There are certain vegetables that when cooked the nutrients are easier to absorb but again some of the other benefits, like the fiber or a vitamin might be changed, so the real answer to your question is it depends, and the perfect answer is to eat them both ways, enjoy them raw sometimes and other times add butter after boiling or frying.

    Best regards,
    Dr. Serrano
