Today, science and natural health are finding common ground! An enormous wealth of clinical studies have been performed on compounds found in nature and their benefits for disease prevention and other health benefits.
A little crowd warmer: A woman walked up to a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch. &quot;I couldn't help noticing how happy you look,&quot; she said. &quot;What's your secret for a long happy life?&quot; &quot;I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,&quot; he said. &quot;I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat lots of fried foods, and I never exercise.&quot; &quot;That's amazing,&quot; said the woman, &quot;how old are you?&quot; &quot;Twenty-six,&quot; he said.
When fad diets began emphasizing reduced fat foods, our sugar consumption sky-rocketed, with corresponding rates of obesity and diabetes also rising dramatically. Obesity rates also correlate with the prevalence of high fructose corn syrup in our diet. High glycemic diets are now understood to cause weight gain and metabolic challenges. Sugar consumption also depletes our B vitamins, which support our nervous system.
Heart disease is a silent killer. The first symptom of heart disease, in many cases, is a heart attack.
If one third of all cancers can be prevented with better diet, what happens when you also improve lifestyle and add detoxifying nutritional supplements?
The prettier tomato is not necessarily the most nutrient-rich tomato.
These unhealthy ingredients are in many baked goods, packaged foods, fried foods, and beverages. A 2009 study found that nearly half of all sampled high fructose corn syrup contained mercury. Americans consume on average 12 teaspoons of HFCS per day. But teenagers consume 80% more than average. Hydrogenated oil is abrasive to the arteries and causes plaque and cholesterol to adhere to arterial walls. Formaldehyde is a toxic chemical that passes the blood-brain barrier and can cause neurological damage resulting in conditions like Alzheimer’s, Lupus, and MS.
To combat acidity resulting from phosphoric acid and other acidifying foods, the body leaches calcium to be used as a neutralizing agent. According to Dr. Duchess, if you put a tooth in a glass of coke, it would be gone by morning. I haven’t tried it! Processed cheese or “cheese food” is a standard in fast food. It has the qualities of plastic and is nearly as durable. As an experiment, leave a McMuffin under the seat of your car for a week and see what happens. Does it break down?
