Let Food Be Thy Medicine

Just one bite can shorten or extend your life!

Junk food examples
The most amount of chemicals we receive through food, there is no doubt.

Meats, vegetables, fruits, grains and dairy are all filled up with hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, rodenticides, steroids, artificial flavours, sweeteners, and so on. That’s foods. 

But there are also food products – things that we perceive as food, but its not. Candy, chips, breads, soft drinks are not foods, there is no nutrients in them, they cannot improve your feeling of satiety, and you can’t live on these products. However, we have a long-term habit that is fortified by mass media informational hurricane that forces us to think that it is fine to eat white bread or candy instead of fruit and vegetables. One curious fact – would you drink from a pump at a gas station? Of course not. Well, majority of soft drinks and candy products are either made of or have additives of oil derivatives. Appetizing? Very much.  Alex Hoplyakov

There are 42 ingredients in a loaf of white bread, most of the chemical ingredients help extend the shelf life of the product.  None of them extend your life.  Most ingredients you can’t pronounce.  If you can’t pronounce an ingredient then don’t eat it.

Nobody knows the effects on those that eat such additives.


Some of the chemicals used as dough conditioners are similar to the anti-freeze mix used for automobile radiators. What should concern us is how do these colours, dyes, preservatives and other additives interact with each other.  The average person’s body contains traces of 300-500 chemicals that didn’t exist 50 years ago.  They enter our bodies through our food, our skin (lotions, deodorants, fragrances, etc) and through the air we breathe.  What happens when they are mixed together into a chemical cocktail?  That is the unknown. 


With all of this chemical exposure it is impossible to hold a single chemical responsible for any particular outcome.  It stands to reason though that the introduction of these foreign chemical substances into our bodies is at the least overworking our digestive and immune systems.  I would suspect that this is one of the many causes contributing to our increased rates of cancer over the last 30 years.  Global rates of cancer are projected to increase 50 % over the next 20 years.  The only approach that a well-informed person can take is to try to reduce their own individual exposure.  Staying away from unnatural processed foods and buying organic and whole foods is a good start to a healthier you.


Artificial Sweeteners and Aspartame


When aspartame was fully marketed in the United States in 1983, many Americans switched from regular sugar-laden sodas to the zero calorie diet drinks believing that they were doing something good for their health. Six months later, there was an extreme rise in disease:

  • 10% brain cancer
  • 30% diabetes
  • 60 % lymphomas

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.


If you are using Aspartame (Nutra-Sweet, Equal & Spoonful) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss--you probably have Aspartame Disease!


Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.


  • Aspartame was never tested on humans before its approval.
  • Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe seizures.
  • This drug was once listed by the Pentagon as a possible biochemical warfare weapon.

Aspartame breaks down into three toxic components:


Methanol

This is poisonous alcohol. In the body, methanol breaks down into formaldehyde, which is a poison.


Phenylalanine

This decreases the amount serotonin in your brain, which leads to mood swings (depressions) and an increased appetite! That is why aspartame is one of the main causes for the current obesity epidemic.


Aspartic acid

This is a neurological toxin comparable to MSG.


I assure you - MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.


If it says "Sugar Free" on the label--do not even think about taking it!!!!


The most thorough study yet on aspartame – Over two million person-years

from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study for a 22-year period. The combined results of this new study showed that just one 12-fl oz. can (355 ml) of diet soda daily leads to:

  • 42% higher leukemia risk in men and women (pooled analysis)
  • 102% higher multiple myeloma risk (in men only)
  • 31% higher non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk (in men only)

And later another Swedish study reported a 40% increase chance of aggressive prostate cancer.

Other considerations, which will be touched on later -
 
Milk, MSG, canola/rapeseed oil, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, nitrates, sugar, unfermented soy products, all of which are not for the body.

I feel the need to mention here briefly, that one of the most destructive methods of toxicity come from the medications we use each day.Make no doubt about it; all drugs are toxic and can hasten one’s death.


They should be used only after careful consideration of the risk-to-benefit ratio, because they all have considerable and serious risks.
