Chemicals, chemicals, and more chemicals are in our food.
So much food today is unhealthy for many reasons, but it is unwise to eat chemicals, especially during pregnancy or for growing kids. The overabundance of manufactured food chemicals can lead to disease; and at the very least, they suppress your body’s immune system.
There are chemicals to change food color, to enhance flavor, and make foods taste sweeter. And the danger of GMOs is an issue for its own article.
Food technology is getting out of hand.
Our food today is becoming more toxic and less nutritious. Fat substitutes, diet sweeteners, and GMOs are taking over our food choices, and when they are unlabeled, you just don’t know what you are eating or feeding your children.
Many foods today aren’t actually food anymore – they are man-made creations invented in a laboratory for – bottomline – profit. Manmade chemicals shouldn’t be eaten by anyone or anything at anytime!
My grandmother always said, “You don’t live to eat; you eat to live.” Grandmommy lived to be 102 years old and stayed in her home until she died.
A, D, E and K
Did you know that food chemicals absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K? This is bad news for the body’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system, and particularly your liver.
Each of your body systems depends on natural vitamins to keep them healthy.
What about fats?
Essential fats should ALWAYS be natural – not manufactured in a lab. Your liver and gall bladder cannot process manmade chemicals or processed fats, but your body CAN expel natural oils easily with a good B-vitamin and some vigorous exercise.
We have not evolved to eat manufactured chemicals.
Chemicals Cause Cancer
The quality of food really does make a difference. According to these statistics, food chemicals can cause cancer …
Colon Cancer is at its highest level in the United States today because the American diet is 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.
* Poses the highest risk in Japan and South America because a high degree of salted and pickled foods is consumed in these two countries. They also add nitrates to their soils and water, and have an average low intake of vitamins C and E.
* 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 fat content.
* The lowest in Japan due to low fat consumption.
* The highest in France.
* The highest within the lower socioeconomic groups in the United States.
* The highest 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 common use of opium causes esophagus cancer.
