Why do i age get sick and get diseases Why do i age get sick and get diseases Document Transcript

  • Why do I get age?.. get sick?...get diseases? The Cause of Disease This might seem hard to believe, but we as humans don’t actually age, we don’t get sick and we don’t get diseases, our cells do. Our body’s health is dependent on our cell’s health. So to slow down aging, limit sickness and prevent disease, we must prot6ect and properly feed our cells. If you were to put buttermilk in your car’s gasoline tank—it would get “sick” and stop working. What are cells made of? Cells are made up of many atoms. When these atoms are healthy the cells replicate (make an exact copy) and keep the body young, well and disease free. What makes an atom healthy is that it has paired electrons. How do cells age, get sick and get diseases? Atoms missing an electron are not just bad, they actually destroy surrounding atoms by stealing their electrons. An atom missing an electron is called a Free Radical. Free radicals alter or destroy cells. Cells that die and cells that repolicate in a damaged state are the cause or contribute to premature aging, sickness and diseases such as cancer, hear4t disease, osteoporosis, and many others. Where do Free Radicals come from? *Smoking * Food Additives *Stress * Foods *Sunlight * Exercise *Pesticides * Chlorine treated water *Pollution * Mercury in seafood and tooth fillings
  • *Airline Travel *X-Rays *Medications * Many other sources The Solution The solution is Antioxidants! Antioxidants have an extra electron that they can give to free radicals which eliminates their harmful effects. Antioxidants are your body’ defense against destructive free radicals. Therefore they are your defense against aging, sickness and disease. Step 1: Antioxidant gives up an extra electron to the free radical Step 2: This atom is now neutralized. The chain reaction of free radicals stops here. This reduces your risk of most sickness and disease Where do Antioxidants come from? Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables. They are also found in other types of foods such as nuts, oils, beans, etc. Research studies suggest that organic foods Antioxidant Free Radical Neutralized Free Radical
  • have higher concentrations of antioxidants than processed foods grown with pesticides. Antioxidants are also found in high quality supplements which are recommended by the American Medical Association because most adults do not eat the right foods to properly feed their cells. Supplement Warning! Not all supplements are beneficial. They must be absorbed by your body. As you can see from the x-ray, these supplements which are from a “name Brand” company, would do you no good. They are still undissolved in the colon! Supplements should be monitored regularly to be sure you are absorbing them. They sho7uld include many types of antioxidants combined properly and do NOT REPLACE EATING a good diet of 9-13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day—they are the “supplements” we take to bridge the gap between what we eat and what we need.
