Introduction:Obesity, Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease are all on the Rise despite spending billions on disease research and health care. Why are we so unhealthy and why are disease rates on the rise?
Our bodies run on nutrients, Vitamins and Minerals, which are abundant in Natural Whole Foods: Fruit, Vegetables, Leafy Greens, Nuts and Seeds.
Yet the food most often found on our dinner tables is heavily processed, wheat flour and sugar based science projects.
Each new cell that our body creates is created using the fuel that we supply our bodies with through the food we eat. If we only fuel our bodies with heavily processed science from a box or a can our bodies become nutrient deficient. Nutrient Deficiency leads to disease.
The fresh foods that we do eat, fruits and vegetables, are often shipped hundreds or thousands of miles from where they are grown. Some of our food in the US even comes as far as Australia.
Fruits and Vegetables begin to lose their nutrients from the moment they are picked, so long transit times from farm to table make our food less nutrient dense. This leads to further nutrient deficiency in our bodies because the limited supply of nutrient dense food we are eating is even less nutrient dense by the time we get to eat it.
Our food supply is sprayed with poisons called Pesticides, which we are led to believe will just wash off. Even though scientists have repeatedly shown that the pesticides do not wash off and are in fact absorbed by the plant. And even though these poisonous pesticides have been proven over and over again to cause Cancer, we continue to believe that they are safe.
Add to that the fact that we irradiate many of our foods which damages the food and creates free radicals(which cause disease, most notably cancer).
And we pasteurize and homogenize foods, which also changes their molecular structure, and changes the way these foods interact with our bodies and our brains.
It really should not be any surprise that Cancer rates are on the rise. If we constantly supply our bodies with foods that are carcinogenic, and our environment is filled with pollutants which are carcinogenic and are water supply is filled with carcinogens, it is actually surprising that more of us our not sick today.
So we take our old, poisoned foods and our science projects and we cook them, often at high temperatures, releasing another Cancer causing agent called Acrylamide.
Acrylamide is created when food is cooked at any temperature, but the higher the temperature, the more Acrylamide is created. Blackened, grilled and deep fried foods are the most dangerous, but even foods like toast contain high levels of this potential cancer causing chemical.
Aside from all of the damage that we do to ourselves just by making poor food choices each day, the good foods that we do eat, have less nutrition then they did even a few decades ago.
If you buy conventionally grown produce today that same apple or cucumber will have up to 40% less vitamins and minerals then it did just 50 years ago. This is because our conventional farming methods have stripped the soil of its nutrients. The organic growing methods that we used for 10,000 years has been replaced with methods that are not only less effective and more costly, but they produce an inferior and disease promoting product.
Yet a few corporations, who make billions on the sale of chemical fertilizers, keep farmers poisoning our soil, poisoning our food and making us sick in the process. They have convinced us through decades of slick advertisements and they have bribed our government officials so they can keep making money, while our friends and families suffer.
Our bodies have a natural ability to heal. Whether you skin your knee, or break a bone, or develop cancer, our bodies have the ability to heal from all of these if they are given the right tools.
Those tools are fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in their raw form. Grown Organically, without poisons, pesticides and herbicides.
We do not need to be a nation that is dying younger then our parents and grandparents. We do not need to continue to suffer.
