Here is article which shows why a toxicologist won’t eat microwavable popcorn or why a farmer will not eat non organic potatoes or why a fishery expert stays away from farmed salmon. Read on to learn why, as well as other foods you should stay away from.
Food scientists are shedding light on items loaded with toxins and chemicals–and simple swaps for a cleaner diet and supersized health.
How do you reduce pain? Think green--green vegetables! Green vegetables help to balance the body's blood pH factor, bringing it into a slightly alkalize state which helps to reduce pain caused by inflammation and fatigue. When the body's internal environment is in an overly acidic pH state it is in pain and numerous health problems can arise in addition to inflammation and fatigue. Chronic acidity diminishes the body's internal oxygen supply and supports disease-producing microorganisms.
Eating alkalizing foods such as green vegetables is an easy and effective way to help the body maintain a proper acid-alkaline balance. I also encourage my clients to get a food chart of alkalizing foods and to read about acid-alkalize balance.
Editor's Note: Here is the transcipt of an important video. We are being bamboozled again by "food" companies. Since Blueberries have been declared a Super Food, of course, fake food manufactures are scrambling to make us think we are eating them when in fact it is actually a potentially harmful fake.
Mike Adams published his video in naturalnews.tv in January of 2011. I think it is important enough to repeat here. Look at the video in the Video Section of T Messenger.
Pictures of blueberries are prominently displayed on the front of many food packages. Here they are on boxes of muffins, cereals and breads. But turn the packages around, and suddenly the blueberries disappear. They're gone, replaced in the ingredients list with sugars, oils and artificial colors derived from petrochemicals.
Before I begin, I want to say that I have no problem with other people’s body size. If that is a life-choice, wonderful. I don’t think less of anyone because of their body shape. We all have our comfort zones.
This rant is ONLY about me. I am accustomed to looking a certain way. That image of myself ties in with a zillion neuron’s that connect to my sense of well-being.
Over the years, of course I have adjusted that comfort image a little. I weighed 98 pounds when I was first married at eighteen. I crept up to 110 and stayed there until a hysterectomy in my late thirties, when it shot up to 120. That’s where I stayed—until recently. I definitely don’t want to go back to 98 pounds, but 125 would be good. It will be perfect, in fact.
For centuries, or so it seems, I have been preaching from the food pulpit that diets don’t work. I still believe that, but as age creeps up on my A$$ and my metabolism goes equally south, I find myself in a dilemma. My life has taught me the valuable lesson of eating Real Food instead pretenders-of-food, for health and keeping the weight off, but now I see that sometimes it isn’t enough, especially for women of a certain ripeness.
I usually write about my whacky life and this is probably a detour from that, but not completely. Although I have lived the life unusual, it has not been without come-uppance karma. My childhood of the five food groups—sugary, salty, crunchy, greasy, and gooey, plus my early adult life of partying, drinking, smoking, and, well other stuff, left its toll. One of them was something that seems to be catching up to a lot of us—Gluten allergy and intolerance.
According to people who track this sort of thing, Gluten intolerance is rampant. Just take a look at Amazon's offering for cookbooks and you'll see a lot of gluten free titles. Search "Gluten free" on Amazon and you come up with thousands of titles.
I've read that many people don't even know what's wrong with them, they just feel aweful, have rashes, migraines, digestive problems, joint pain, weakness, depression, and a host of other symptoms. The lucky ones figure out that they have a problem with gluten or wheat—no drugs or surgery required.
What you’ve had up to this point has been an obsessive relationship...not love. Whether with a substance or with a person, an obsessive relationship is a dance of the wounded . . . a carnival of pain . . . but not a real love affair, because there is no love there. To think you need food that you don’t really need...to binge on and then alternately avoid food—none of these bespeak a love affair. Pain and compulsion and self-hate are not love.
