I am also a quote collector, though I have transfered all mine to my computer! Here's a few that I like.
"One-quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor
Alive." (Hieroglyph found in an ancient Egyptian tomb.)
"Let food be thy medicine, and let thy medicine be food." Hippocrates
"And we have made of ourselves living cesspools, and driven doctors to invent
names for our diseases." Plato
"God, in His infinite wisdom, neglected nothing and if we would eat our food without trying
to improve, change or refine it, thereby destroying its life-giving elements, it would meet
all requirements of the body." Jethro Kloss
"You cannot poison your body into health with drugs, chemo or radiation. "Health" can
only be achieved with healthful living." T.C. Fry
"When you're green inside, you're clean inside." Dr. Bernard Jensen
"When you see the Golden Arches you are probably on the road to the Pearly Gates."
William Castelli, MD - Director, Framingham Heart Study
“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” - La Rochefoucauld
He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of the physician.
- Chinese Proverb
When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
- Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
- Thomas A Edison
“The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of ‘real food for real people’ you'd better live real close to a real good hospital.” -Neal Barnard, MD (one of my personal favorites)
"The most important thing to remember about food labels is that you should avoid foods that have labels."-Joel Fuhrman, MD
