Katy Perry and husband Russell Brand want to get healthy for the new year and have committed to a special new super green diet.

Both Brand — who’s already a vegetarian — and Perry have cut out all wheat and dairy and are drinking a special Indian green tea like it’s their job!

A source close to the couple revealed, “Katy and Russell are taking care of themselves and are on a mission to get fit. As well as cutting out wheat and diary, they’re on a diet of raw vegetables, tofu and pulses.” (Pulses = beans, lentils and peas.)

We love to hear that the dynamic duo are adopting a diet that’s not only healthier for their bodies but also for the planet.

Do you have any healthy holiday goals? Chime in and share!

    All those foods cause major gas………….wouldn’t want to be in a closed room with them………eewwwwwwwww

    @Janie…rotting meat in your colon smells awesome though.

    • David

      Meat doesn’t rot in your colon. Unless you insert it the wrong direction, and if that is what you are into that is fine. But meat that enters through you mouth doesn’t rot in any part of your digestive system.

  • Jen H

    Meat is already rotting before you ingest it. The second you kill the animal it starts to break down and decompose.

    • David

      Then plants start to rot as soon as they are harvested. So plants must rot in your colon also. So what difference does it make whether it is plants or meat rotting in your colon?

      • Christopher Noaro ?

        Most peer-reviewed studies independent of the animal agriculture industry show that animal flesh and products cause cancer (colon, prostate, breast and many others) and heart disease. Plants don’t – simple really. The fibre in plant foods pushes the food through our bodies quickly and we are well equipped to process plant foods. Animal protein causes cancer and produces carcinogens when cooked – eat all your animal products raw like real carnivores/omnivores and see what happens.

    for one, plants dont give you colon cancer. Meat on the other hand gives you a change to get colon cancer.

    quote from an article in the New England Journal Of Medecine :
    “animal fat was positively associated with the risk of colon

    when i google with “colon cancer” and “vegetables” i got oposite results, suchs as in the Journal of the American Dietic Association :
    “citrus fruit and vegetables, particularly raw and green
    vegetables, are consistently shown to be protective for colon cancer”

    please note, the above quotes are not from wacky vegan websites but from non-veggie respectable sources.

      my post above was a reply to David …

    • David

      So what is your point? Jen H claimed that meat rots in your colon and said nothing about colon cancer. If you want to discuss a new topic why not do that rather than hijack and existing one?

      But to address your issue.

      Eating meat increases the risk of dying of colon cancer by about 1/3. In the US, about 7% of the general population gets colon cancer, so that implies a risk of about 5% for vegans. Colon cancer is still going to be one of the most common kinds of cancer among vegans.

      On the other hand, vegans still live about the same amount of time as comparable non-vegans.

      The Oxford Vegetarian Study was a strong indication that most – possibly all – of the longevity boost vegetarians and vegans get over the general population comes from lifestyle factors other than abstaining from meat: smoking less, drinking less, exercising more, etc.

        @ David, it was you who ended your post asking whats the diference wether its plant or meat rotting in your colon. So i merely answered your question backed with quotes from scientific reports.
        Your latest reply are just your own assumptions backed by nothing and no link or whatsoever.
        Mentioning some “study” without any link and your own conclusion glued to it with the words “a strong indication” and “possible all” just doesnt have much real value.

      • David

        I didn’t realize you were incapable of using your computer for anything but repeating what others have told you. Most people have the skill to actually find things on the web.

        And you obviously have no clue about how real science and studies work. They almost always have statements like “a strong indication” and “possible all” because real scientists know that there are few absolutes, so they state their conclusions with conditional statements.

    Tomotari Mitsuoka, DVM, PhD

    Other intestinal bacteria produce substances that are harmful to the host, such as putrefactive products, toxins and carcinogenic substances. When harmful bacteria dominate in the intestines, essential nutrients are not produced and the level of harmful substances rises. These substances may not have an immediate detrimental effect on the host but they are thought to be contributing factors to ageing, promoting cancer, liver and kidney disease, hypertension and arteriosclerosis, and reduced immunity.
    Dietary factors are considered important environmental risk determinants for colorectal cancer development. From epidemiological observations, a high fat intake is associated positively and a high fibre intake negatively with colorectal cancer. This is thought to occur by the following mechanisms. From food components in the gastrointestinal tract, organisms produce various carcinogens from the dietary components and endogenous substances, detoxify carcinogens, or enhance the host’s immune function, which results in changes in the incidence of cancers. The ingestion of large amounts of animal fat enhances bile secretion, causing an increase in bile acid and cholesterol in the intestine. These increased substances are converted by intestinal bacteria into secondary bile acids, their derivatives, aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons, oestrogen and epoxides derivatives that are related to carcinogenesis. Various tryptophan metabolites (indole, skatole, 3-hydroxykinurenine, 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid, etc.) phenols, amines, and nitroso compounds produced by intestinal bacteria from protein also participate in carcinogenesis (Fig. 5).

    oh, great, you are getting rude.well, thatt always a sign of somebody who cant win with arguments, right ?
    so now according to you, “real scientist” use almost always “possible all” and “a strong indication” because they know “there are few absolutes”
    You cant be serious. Science is here to remove doubts and gather hard facts so drug companies can make new medicense, etc. When there is a “strong indication”, that is the BEGINNING of a scietific study, to find out if these strong indications are true or false.
    And please what you say, its still your own words, you dont provide any link or nothing.
    Okay, here we go.
    “Please” read again the quotes from non veggie scientitific reports that i posted : “animal fat was positively associated with the risk of colon
    Can you read it ? There isnt a “possibly” or a “strong indication”, these scientist plainly have found a relation between cancer and meat.
    Same goes for the veggie quote : “green vegetables, are consistently shown to be protective for colon cancer”
    Agaian, there is no “maybe” or “strong indication”, but there is a “consistently” and a “protective to colon cancer”.
    Scientist dont write that if they dont have the hard data and the facts to make that case. (thats why its science, eh)
    its again a very clear report that says that vegetables protect against cancer. Period.
    And no, of course any scientist who does such a study does it with persons who have a similar lifestyle (such as smoking, non-smoking, etc) with only one diference “vegetarian” or “meat-eater”. Its not , like you claim with your “oxford vegetarian study” (whatever that is…) that scientist compare non-smoking vegetarians with smoking meateaters.

    • David

      Gee really herwin?

      From your first link
      “Substantial data from animal and metabolic studies support a role of dietary fat in colon carcinogenesis. A high intake of saturated26 , 27 and unsaturated27 , 28 fat has increased the incidence of chemically induced colon cancer in animals, although not consistently.29 In humans30 , 31 and laboratory animals,31 , 32 diets high in fat increase the excretion of bile acids. Increased fecal concentrations of bile acids have been found in populations with higher rates of colon cancer,31 , 33 individual patients with colon cancer,34 , 35 and patients with colon polyps,36 although these findings are not entirely consistent.”

      ‘findings are not entirely consistent’

      Yup sure sounds like they say there is a definite correlation.
