The Shocking Truth About Food

Almost all the foods people are eating today have been genetically modified, not to make them more nutritious but to keep the bugs from eating them, to increase shelf-life, to make them bigger, to make them more attractive, and to make more money.  Unfortunately the flavor and taste of these modified products is not even close to what it should be, and the nutrition is long gone.

Did you know that Americans spend 90% of their food dollars on processed foods?

Instead of spraying corn with pesticides, Monsanto had a better idea.  They changed the DNA of the corn to have pesticides in the DNA so when corn grows the pesticide automatically emits from the corn.  They say it doesn’t have enough toxins left to harm us, but corn today is regulated as a pesticide.

How about gluten intolerance?  It’s epidemic today!  Do you know that we have genetically modified wheat more than 8 times in the last 40 years?  Our bodies are finally saying TIME OUT!. . . I don’t get it.  I don’t recognize it.  Is it food?  And your body is rejecting it because it doesn’t recognize it as real food.

And this is not happening just to wheat.  It’s happening to many other products that we eat on a daily basis.  Strawberries have been genetically modified over 17 times in the last 20 years.

How about those boxes of blueberry muffin mix you see at the grocery store with pictures of blueberries on them?  You won’t find a blueberry in it.

Dead moths from Mexico are used to color blueberry yogurt.  These same moths were originally used to dye fabric blue.  Continue reading The Shocking Truth About Food

Antioxidants – Are You Rusting?

Rusted up tin manThe Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz rusted up due to oxidation.  We’re suffering much worse damage due to oxidative stress, and it’ll take more than an oil can to fix it!

Oxygen is essential for life, but it can create damaging by-products during normal cellular metabolism.  These by-products are called free radicals

Although the process of oxidation is necessary, it leaves behind free radicals, oxidized molecules that are missing electrons.  These molecules are unstable and agitated.  They remain unstable until they capture new electrons to replace the missing ones.  They roam throughout our bodies stealing electrons from our cells, even our most vital ones like  electron-rich DNA.

When free radicals pull electrons out of our DNA it can no longer function properly.  DNA stores our genetic information and controls the reproduction of all new cells, including the cells of our organs, heart, brain and other tissues which are critical to our health.  Continue reading Antioxidants – Are You Rusting?
