How come if so many foods are bad for us, our Governments don’t get involved and put a stop to it? It’s because the vast majority of people standing in Government are nutritionally ignorant. The blind are leading the blind.
We are all aware that too much sugar is bad for us; but do we really know why, other than we gain weight? We all know that too much alcohol is bad for us, but do we know all the problems it causes us?
Why is it, we are not taught nutrition in school? Our body is our temple. It is nurtured with food, water and exercise; yet we are ignorant as to what food and drink harms our bodies. The vast majority of teachers are nutritionally ignorant.
Even the food served in school, which we have improved a little, is still nutritionally dead, and our bodies’ digestive system has to fight to get what it can from it.
We read about getting our 5-a-day; but the reality is, the 5-a-day has to be fresh fruit and vegetables, not some dried-up nutritionally void raisin.
When your body’s digestive system has to fight to get what ever little nutrition is in the food you eat from packets, jars and tins, the balance we need has to be produced by our organs, such as the pancreas. But that puts our organs into stress from being overworked, and this is one of the major reasons we get diabetes; not just overloading on sugar. When we can’t produce the missing parts we need, we get disease. That disease slowly degenerates our body, with arthritis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, asthma, psoriasis, eczema, candidiasis; and much more.
I would like you to take a different thought about food. Think fuel! Food is fuel for your body. The creator designed food for fuel; energy; yet we have made it into pleasure.
If you want to get well, get slim and live longer, healthier, you have to go back to what God; Allah, Jehovah, gave us. He gave us vegetables, fruit, roots, nuts, berries, beans and seeds; full of nutrition and enzymes to give us energy and work our digestive system. Without the enzymes in processed food, and the lack of nutrition, because it has be killed by ob=ver-heating; our body is lacking, and we get disease.
Yes, we are getting older as a species; but it is relative to the last 100 years; and we are getting sicker with it. We are living longer, but much sicker, and it is medicine which is keeping us alive for longer.
We are designed to live well over 100 years and be fit and healthy with it. There are still tribes in Northern Pakistan, South America and Japan, where people live healthily well over 120 years of age. Oh, and by the way, they are thin.
The Governments of our countries are not only nutritionally ignorant, they have a dilemma. What do they do with the food industry, when they find out that processed, packaged, refined, fatty, sugary food is slowly killing us and costing our health services billions? They can’t just shut it down; the country’s economy would collapse. Most countries don’t even have the land to grow enough food anymore.
Gardens were meant for growing food, but in civilised countries, we have turned them into ornamental recreation areas, that need as much attention as growing food does.
If you want to lose weight, live a healthier life, reverse heart disease and blood pressure, reverse cancer, reverses Osteoporosis, get rid of Diabetes, have healthier skin, improve your eyesight and live longer and fitter; we are holding a weekend of Eating to Live, not eating to die.
