"Let's look back a minute...what is the difference
with someone born in 1939 versus someone born in 1989??? (Besides
the obvious 50 years older....)
If you take a look at very old pictures of your
grandparents and their families..how many obese people do you
see?..How many spoke of being asthmatic?..allergic?...autistic??
Not many, believe me. They basically lived and worked until they
dropped dead in the field... WHY??
In 1939, your family was still using ice in the
refridgerator to cool food, all your food was grown locally..or
in your own backyard, and ripened before picking..it was shipped
for a maximum of a few hours...your meat came from the local
butcher, hormones were not heard of....milk was not pasteurized
and was full of nutrients..(you seldom heard of anyone allergic
to it)...and the best one...NO PROCESSED FOOD OR
FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS!!
(Want to know why fast food restaurants and their
food is so bad for us??? Read:
There was no or next to no - Obesity, Diabetes,
Heart Attacks, Cancer, High Blood Pressure, Alzheimer's, Parkinsons,
Asthma. The one major health problem was infection..so you'd
think that with the advent of antibiotics..we should have had
it made in the shade and by now be in almost perfect health,
Nope! Wrong! The health of the general public has
never been worse!! In my opinion our food is the
main factor..and we can't rely on it to keep us
I mean how bizarre can it get when we see that
on autopsy of young children after
dying in fatal accidents...it is common to find plaquing
of the arteries...a disease which should never
be seen before the age of 45 year of age!!!
So the person born in 1989 is snookered from the
get go...they have been fed for the most part in the average
family some tons of sugar, chemicals, processed food, dead fruit
and vegetables, chemical and hormone laced dairy products, hormone
and preservative laden meats, high saturated fats mixed with
sugar (THE death sentence of all time) and the
list goes on...
Look around you..how many people do you know with
allergies, diabetes, obsesity, heart problems, skin problems..even
children...it seems very few are NOT on mediciation
of some sort. It's just not right...
Here's my "hit" list of Why We
Part I - Food
1) For the most part, our food sources really stink.
Did you know that for as long as back to the 1920's...governments
were told by nutrition experts that the lands our food was being
grown on, in some cases had only 10% the mineral level needed
to produce ultimate food?
Did they do anything about it? Nope! and now the
whole problem is magnified by the advent of the chemical industry
and its production of pesticides and insecticides. The chemical
applications are needed BECAUSE the soil is sick and the plants
can't fight disease and infestation themselves...as they are
not growing in an environment which offers them the option of
selecting all nutrients needed for optimal growth.
Plants are survivors..they literally will grow
and look just fine on virutally next to nothing...if they can
at least attain nitrogen, phosphorus and water. But of course
under these spartan circumstances..they are not supplying us
all the nutrients we need.
This is a major concern. Unless you purchase your
fruits and vegetables organically grown, as I recommend in my Amazon.com
Store , then you are probably not giving your body
what it needs on a daily basis, let alone enough to optimize
health in this toxic world we live in.
How do we correct this? Unfortunately, there is
little we can personally do ...except as mentioned above..to
Are farmers fixing their soils? Not much is going
on there. They tend to rely on more and more use of chemicals
to fight infestations and disease that the plants can't or even
worse genetically modified food which is artifically developed
to grow plants resistant to disease..but completely to the detriment
of nutritional value....some are even out right dangerous."
So we are left to our own devices to try to obtain
the best food possible..as I mentioned above...from my book...organic
and even locally grown if possible.
Then, by supplementing can you only hope to achieve
the ultimate for your body....
Before I go into which supplements you should be
looking at...there is one more process or biochemical pathway
you should know about...
AGE'S..Advanced Glycation Endproducts..
This is a process very few books or websites will
talk about with respect to aging..and yet its probably the second
most detrimental...next to oxidation..explained above..and although
it is a form of antioxidant which fights this process.......More...on to Page 3
