Gina is from an Italian family and taking a meat sandwich to school for lunch every day was the norm. Her family eating meat at dinner was the pattern that she followed with her own family, so nothing seemed out of the ordinary. What caused her to pause was that she couldn't seem to shake those allergy and sinus infections that were constantly occurring as an adult. One day, after a shocking conversation with her friend and mentor, Sandi, Gina's world would never be the same. Gina thought that Sandi was a picture of health, so how could she had been diagnosed with heart disease? This diagnosis caused Sandi to become a vegan about a year ago. This new discovery set Gina in a tailspin. What the Fork? The Secret Cause of Disease by Gina Bonanno-Lemos details the steps and the journey that Gina took to educate and heal herself. Gina provides information as to how all of the diseases and illnesses of the world transpire through what we eat, how the animals and environment are treated, in how we live and how it all affects us. Gina offers some resources including clips on YouTube to help bring the point home, you are what you eat.
In reading What the Fork? The Secret Cause of Disease by Gina Bonanno-Lemos I was excited because of all of the information that I learned. With the increase of Alzheimer's, autism, diabetes, and cancer, clearly foods, medication and the environment are at the forefront of the maladies. The irony is that as you are trying to cure one thing with Western medicine you are then battling other illnesses or diseases that the medication caused. You may not want to totally adopt a vegan diet, but drinking at least 48 oz of water every day, eating more fruits and vegetables (either organically or home grown is best), and consuming less meat can be the key towards a healthier you. To your health.
