THE POISONS IN OUR FOOD SUPPLY

Not a day goes by that we are not hearing about how the commercial food supply is tainted with different harmful chemicals. Yesterday the news story was about how pomegranate juice really isn’t just pomegranates but a combination of white grape juice, water and pomegranates. We also heard that commercially purchased paprika is colored to look redder because it isn’t all natural. We also learned that the food labels don’t necessarily have to tell us that these foods contain foreign substances. So I started asking myself how do we protect ourselves from these poisons in our food supply.

First, we become educated to what the food additives are: artificial colorings, artificial flavorings, artificial sweetners, bromine, BHA/BHT, carrageenan, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fats, nitrates/nitrites, MSG (and it’s 27 different names), etc. The endless list is so exhaustive there are entire websites that list them and their side effects.

Second, we need to make sure that we  eliminate the foods that contain all these food additives and look at how you can protect yourself not just by reading the labels but by including organic foods. Yes, I’ve heard it all before “Oh it’s too expensive, I can’t afford organic on my food budget” This is where you have leverage your spending dollars. If you forgo that bag pesticide laden potato chips you can afford a bunch a organic bananas. It’s all a choice. You can choose to buy chemical laden food and feel ill all the time, or you can choose healthy organic food and feel good. One more thing here, stop listening to the television doctor who claims that if you buy organic food your an elitist because you know he is. You’ve got to know that his house is only filled with organic. Stop the insanity and stop listening to hypocrites. 

Third, the toxins in our life slows down the healing process that happens within our cells. This slow down helps diseases to take hold and make us sick and can even be deadly.

  Give your body the protection it wants!
