Facts and figures!

Documented evidence shows there is nothing in the natural environment that causes diseases, illness, or even cancer.

Studies and tests made of ancient bodies have revealed that cancer and certain diseases were not found many hundred years ago.

Tumors back than were extremely rare until very recent times.

According to statistics compiled over years, cancer and heart disease became the top killers in the last century between the ages of 45-75 in the Western world, and is still on the rise.

Environmental-lifestyle factors pinpointed such as pesticides, chemical exposure, pharmaceutical drugs, cell phone radiation, processed and artificial food.

What you need to know about!

Let's look at milk. Some milk producers treat their dairy cattle with growth hormones.

BGH (bovine growth hormone) boosts milk production; it also causes udder infection and makes some type of pus in the milk. It increases at the same time the level of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. This same hormone growth factor may also cause prostate, colon, and breast cancer. Many times, there are no warning labels on the product, which is not required by law.
What can you do? Avoid pasteurized milk when possible and use raw milk that comes from a farmer you can trust. Most people think milk is important for a healthy diet; it is not, not unless it comes from a cow that is only grass-fed without chemicals.

Farmed fish and salmon!

A fish or salmon living in its own natural environment and not intend being crammed into pens or ponds. On top of this they fed with soy, poultry litter and other artificial rubbish.

As a result, farmed fish and salmon are missing all the nutritional value it should have.

We should include fish at least weekly in our diet without being short charged of its qualities. But this is not the case. The nutritional values are lost with high contaminants, including carcinogens, pesticides such as dioxin and DDT.

Potatoes non-organic!

The National Organic Standards Board reveals that root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that wind up in soils. The potatoes get this special treatment with fungicides while they grow and sprayed to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. To top it all off, after harvesting yet another treatment takes place to prevent potatoes from sprouting. The simple potato is no longer what it was, just a simple potato.

Beef should never be corn-fed!

Again, this is total against nature! Cattle should never be corn-fed. These four-legged creatures been borne to eat grass, not grains.

As an insult to nature, the farmers today feed them corn and soy beans. This will fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. It is all about money!

We are missing out yet again of all the vitamins and quality nutrients nature has provided for us in the first place.

Tomatoes from the can!

Most inside-linings of tin cans contain the chemical BPA (Bisphenol); this also links to the chemical xenoestrogens. Chemicals like these can leak in to any type of canned food. However, it affects the tomato more so because of its acidity; this will cause BPA leach into the food more easily.

Without any exception, all canned foods are subject to this. It can cause several health issues, ranging from diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and reproductive problems.

What's the message?

These are only some examples. There is not enough space to list them all.

Knowing about these things is better than not knowing! Always read the labels, although they are not telling everything.

When you do your shopping, you can make your own choices by knowing about most of the culprits and avoiding or reducing them if possible.
