(NaturalNews) Dr Oz was recently found to have a precancerous colon polyp which was surgically removed. Following this experience, he appears to be surprised and confused about the origin of the condition, and he credits colonoscopy screening with saving his life.

Dr Oz even seems to think he has a perfect health record, saying, "I have done everything right. I don't have any family history, and yet I'm high risk now." His personal physician, meanwhile, is implying that even though Dr Oz's "healthy" diet was perfect, it wasn't enough to prevent colon polyps, and therefore you might get them too. (And therefore everybody should get screened...)

Dr Jonathan Lapook, went on to say "...no matter what you do, you can't totally eliminate your risk of developing this disease, which is expected to strike 143,000 Americans and kill over 51,000 in 2010." (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-20015...)

Colon polyps, in other words, appear without any cause! Mainstream medicine, you see, believes in the theory of "spontaneous disease" that "strikes" people at random.

Sort of like disease voodoo.

No matter what you do, they say, you can't be totally sure that you're disease free. Therefore, you need all their disease screening protocols, mammograms, and CT scans (which irradiate your body and can actually cause cancer, by the way).

What a bunch of nonsense. As any real scientist knows, everything that happens in our universe has a cause. It's a cause-effect universe, and unless you're God or can magically change the laws of the universe, you can't alter the laws of cause and effect.

So if you develop colon polyps, there is a cause for it, and that cause is without question related to the foods you're consuming, because that's what is in contact with your small intestine, large intestine and colon. (It's not the only factor, but it's the primary factor.)

And the more you eat meats, cooked foods, cheese, dairy products, fried foods and dead foods, the more likely you are to develop colon polyps.

The things that prevent colon polyps are raw foods, plant foods, superfoods, aloe vera and even water.

"Healthy" is relative

Now, Dr Oz says he eats a "healthy" diet, but he's from the world of mainstream medicine. Even though Dr Oz has undoubtedly given a lot of really positive dietary advice to a lot of people, and even though his diet is no doubt far healthier than what most people eat, from the point of view of us who focus on superfoods nutrition, Dr. Oz is not really that deep into cutting-edge healthy eating.

He's not an advocate of raw foods or veganism, for example, and while he smartly teaches people to avoid high-fructose corn syrup and sugar, he's places very little emphasis on avoiding other harmful ingredients like MSG, aspartame and artificial colors.

He doesn't strongly advocate organic foods, either, and eating pesticides from conventionally-grown produce is certainly one way to aggravate your colon. Nor does Dr Oz talk much about avoiding genetically modified foods (GMOs), which we now know may actually result in pesticides being manufactured and released directly in your gut. (He did, however, interview Jeffrey Smith on his Oprah radio show, to his credit.)

You see, Dr Oz is only considered really healthy by mainstream people who are ridiculously unhealthy by comparison. Sure, compared to what most people eat -- or even what most doctors eat -- Dr Oz has a fairly clean diet. But I don't know anyone in the world of natural health who is really that impressed with Dr Oz's dietary advice -- most of which seems "watered down" to make it more acceptable to a mainstream television audience. People like Dr Mercola no doubt follow far healthier diets than Dr Oz, and raw food gurus like Dr Gabriel Cousens will probably never be diagnosed with colon polyps.

See, there's "mainstream healthy" and then there's "cutting edge healthy," and while Dr Oz is definitely healthy compared to mainstream consumers, he's really not that far into what I would call "cutting edge healthy eating." Don't get me wrong: His advice, directed at a mainstream audience, is extremely valuable to that audience. He's reaching an audience of diabetic, obese junk food eaters who, let's face it, watch daytime television!

Just speaking on the facts, most of these daytime TV viewers know virtually nothing about health or nutrition. At least Dr Oz is teaching them some of the basics, and that's good a good thing. For that reason, he deserves credit for being one of the few mainstream physicians out there who at least has one foot in the realm of nutrition. One foot is a start. Both feet are even better.

But don't confuse Dr Oz with someone who has attained a state of perfect human health. Whatever polyps appear in Dr Oz's colon are being predominantly caused by Dr Oz's food choices. That's because the body of Dr Oz follows the laws of physics, just like yours and mine. There is no law of the universe by which Dr Oz could follow a diet of perfect health and yet somehow a colon polyps would spontaneously appear in his body without cause.

If you believe that, you believe in magic. Or voodoo. Or luck. Heck, if you believe that disease is spontaneous and appears without cause, then you might as well just eat whatever you want and pray to the spontaneous disease gods that they don't strike you down with some random affliction like diabetes. Don't laugh: There are literally some people who believe you can drink soda all day long and you'll never get diabetes as long as you "bless" your soda first.

Sure, maybe if you're Moses or some other supernatural figure endowed with magical powers. If you can turn water into wine, then maybe you really can turn soda into a healthful beverage. But for the rest of us non-supernatural beings, we need to follow the laws of biochemistry, and that means eating in alignment with the foods that will cause our bodies to express a state of health and balance. The health results you get are determined by what you feed your body, how you treat your body and what you expose your body to (as in chemicals).

Stress is also a factor, of course, in determining your health outcome. But luck plays absolutely no role whatsoever.

And that's important to understand because Dr Oz's physician is essentially saying that Dr Oz was struck with "a case of bad luck."

As any real scientist would tell you, there's actually no such thing. There's bad planning, bad diets, bad choices... but there's no such thing as bad luck that cause spontaneous colon polyps.

Maybe Dr Oz needs to discover the amazing healing power of fresh, raw aloe vera gel and talk about that on his show. Or maybe he needs to shift his diet into a new chapter of health based on more raw foods, more organics, no GMOs and more microalgae superfoods. There are many areas where Dr Oz could improve his diet by investigating superfoods and various raw plants -- especially raw aloe vera gel which I have been advocating for years. (Fresh aloe vera prevents colon polyps like nothing else...)

I have no doubt Dr Oz will easily recover from this colon polyp incident, because he is, after all, in a relative state of good health compared to the mainstream population. But unless he takes his diet to a whole new level of health, he will likely soon have another colon polyp. Because these things, after all, do not spontaneously appear without cause as has been suggested by his physician.

Also, while Dr Oz has offered a lot of good health advice to a lot of people, he still promotes influenza vaccines even though they don't work on 99% of those who receive them (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_vaccines_j...).

Dr Oz, in other words, might be most accurately described as a pro-vaccine, pro-pharmaceutical, pro-screening mainstream doctor who has begun to explore some of the benefits of healthy eating but still has a long ways to go. Overall, he's a positive influence on mainstream America, so I'm glad he's out there, and I hope he continues to move in the right direction on superfoods, organics and cutting-edge nutritional remedies.

But don't confuse Dr Oz with someone who espouses a "perfect" diet. Based on what I know, he's far from it (but a lot closer than most other doctors, for sure). And he hasn't done "everything right."

None of us have, actually. We all veer from dietary perfection from time to time. Today I ate a sandwich at a vegan restaurant, but the bread was white bread! Is that white bread going to increase my own risk of colon polyps? Absolutely, by some tiny amount. That's why I'm chasing it later tonight with an 8 oz. glass of fresh organic vegetable juice made in my countertop Hurom "Slow Juicer." And tomorrow morning I'll drink a breakfast smoothie blended with raw aloe vera juice.

The healing effects of the raw juices and aloe vera gel will more than make up for eating one vegan sandwich made with white bread.

I'm not perfect with my diet, you know. Sure, I eat a lot of superfoods and some really cutting-edge nutrients like astaxanthin, but I slip up from time to time and ingest something that's less than perfect. Fortunately, I've discovered that my body knows how to heal itself, and as long as I'm ingesting superfood nutrients and sunshine while getting plenty of exercise, the body can handle a slice of bread from time to time.
