We have all figured out that today’s food supply is becoming more and more toxic. There are fat substitutes, artificial sweeteners, and GMOs taking over our food supply. What’s worse is when they are unlabeled – you just don’t know what you are buying, eating, or feeding your children.
Too many foods aren’t real anymore – they are basically fakes created in a laboratory to replace what’s found in Nature. Don’t let the advertisers fool you – it’s NOT because of a food shortage; it’s for a monopoly on profits.
Manmade food and food chemicals shouldn’t be eaten by anyone for anything!
Eat Vitamins A, D, E and K
Food toxins absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. This is bad news for your body’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system – particularly for your liver. Each of these body systems depends on these vitamins to keep them healthy.
Eat the foods rich in these vitamins, and it’s always good to take extra supplements, especially since most of our foods are void of them.
Chemicals, Chemicals, and More Chemicals
We’ve gone over-board adding chemicals to our food supply.
There are chemicals to change food color, to enhance flavor, allow boxed food to sit on the shelf for months at a time, and make foods taste sweeter. The danger of GMOs is an issue for another article, but realize that this food technology has gotten out of hand.
Food today is making us sick, and it is unwise to eat chemicals during pregnancy and for growing children. The overabundance of manufactured foods is leading to cancer, immune deficiency, and other illnesses; at the very least, they are suppressing your body’s immune system.
Your liver and gall bladder cannot process lab chemicals or junk, fake fats. Your body can only assimilate natural oils and fats, especially when you supplement with a good B-vitamin complex and some vigorous exercise.
People simply have not evolved to survive on manufactured food chemicals.
“You don’t live to eat; you eat to live.”
The quality of our food really does make a difference. According to these statistics, they do anyway …..
Colon cancer is at its highest level in the United States today because the American diet has promoted the highest fat, lowest fiber, fried-GMO processed diet in the world.
* The lowest colon cancer rates are found in Japan because the Japanese have diets low in processed fat.
* Mormons also have a low colon cancer rate because they eat a natural food diet, especially a diet high in natural fiber.
* Seventh-Day Adventists have a low colon cancer rate, too, because they eat very low to no fatty fried foods and have high fiber diets.
Stomach cancer poses the highest risk in Japan and South America because they eat too much salted and pickled foods. They also add nitrates to their soils and water, and have an average low intake of vitamins C and E.
It is the lowest in the United States because Americans have fresh fruits, salads, and vitamins C and E available year round.
* The highest in the United States and Western Europe due to the “Western” high-fat, GMO, chemical diet.
* The lowest in Japan as a result of their naturally low fat diet.
* The highest in the United States and Scandinavia because of high processed fat content.
* The lowest in Japan due to low processed fat consumption.
Esophagus cancer is the highest in France*, within the lower socioeconomic groups in the United States*, and within Eastern Iran and Central China**.
*France and the United States have high risk factors due to the consumption of alcohol, aspartame, and chemical tobacco use.
**Iran and China have very low levels of vitamins C and A available, and the high use of opium causes esophagus cancer.
- Cook at home more than you eat out;
- When you do eat at a restaurant, choose one that makes mostly fresh dishes and eat ethnic (ethic restaurants typically cook with fresh foods and oils);
- Avoid fast-food and drive-thrus;
- Don’t buy coffees at the drive-thru coffee shops that fill your coffee cup with a plethora of chemical additives and flavorings.
Eat a balanced diet at every meal, and eat mostly fresh foods. You have to grocery shop more often, but it’s well-worth eating fresher foods that spoil quicker than the processed foods loaded with chemicals and preservatives.
