The Face of Starvation in America

Obesity in America

This is NOT FUNNY.  These kids are starving..

I wonder how many people are addicted to junk food. I know quite a few personally. Sodium and MSG are powerful flavor enhancers and over stimulate the taste buds. It’s like a sex addiction. The addict is desensitized. The taste buds are desensitized and it takes more and more flavor to be satisfied.

When addicted, moderation is not a part of your vocabulary. When I was cooking for clients to help them lose weight, I had to create a lot of flavor for them to be satisfied. A big part of the reason, people fall off the diet wagon – they don’t know how to create flavor, healthfully.

I’m glad to see mainstream media finally picking up on the “malnourishment” aspect of obesity. We have hunger pains for a reason. It tells us the body needs nutrients. When the body doesn’t get what it needs the hunger switch doesn’t cut off and we keep eating and eating.   Junk food only satisfies the taste buds, not the body’s nutritional needs.  

And then there is this – All the chemicals, non-beneficial fats, processed carbs, sugar and meat that makes up the bulk of fast food fare – is all acidic. You would need a lot of vegetables to balance this kind of acid. A McDonald salad along with your burger, fries and soda is not going to do it.

At the root of all the diseases mentioned is inflammation. Inflammation happens when the body is too acidic. Just like acid irritates and causes inflammation on the outside of the body, the same thing happens on the inside.  How well would you be able to focus on your work if your skin was in a constant state inflammation?

An inflamed body cannot function properly, it is handicapped.   If the imbalance goes on long enough the body starts to shut down.  This is chronic disease and eventually a painful death.

Toxic Thinking & Cancer

Good information.  Check out #9 – 1 and 8 will die of cancer “globally”.  In the US, cancer is “often” NOT listed as the cause of death.  Listed may be; pneumonia, stroke, heart attack, infection, etc.  This practice skews the statistics of cancer survivors, making it seem we are winning the “so-called” war on cancer, when in reality the epidemic is growing.  All of this information is great and preventative, however, I would also add to this that years of worry and toxic thinking may cause more cancer than we know.  Unhappiness and health cannot co-exist.  Unhappiness affects the body at cell level.  Science is now proving this…

Man Made Vs Nature Made..

Is it possible this genetically modified version of our “symbol of health” will not be fully recognized by our bodies?  It makes sense to me that nature supplies what the natural, organic human body needs for health and maintenance.  Nature and the human animal are co-dependent.   I’m not convinced man can duplicate this natural, complimentary process.  Does science really understand the miracle of life and nature? Science says the nutrients in the GMO products and organic products are the same, but that doesn’t mean our bodies can use them. Can science really decode the conversation between our natural food source and our natural bodies?  We’ve seen what happens to synthetic vitamins – They end up the sewer system, undigested.  We know our bodies are so unique, they are not compatible with foreign substances placed in the body and will even reject a perfectly good organ.  Our bodies rebel against bacteria, viruses, bugs. etc.  I for one, believe all the chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, modified and processed foods are taking their toll on public health simply because they are NOT compatible to the miracle that is our natural, organic body.  Food For Thought….
