Food is the fuels that energizes our body for work play and healing. It is the source of our vitality and contains all substances necessary for the regulation of all our body processes.
Human life has advanced for eons using nothing more than natural foods from plants and animals, along with fresh water and clear air.
But our environment has become very polluted. Most people live far removed from farms and no gardens. Food is processed to allow for long distance transportation and a long shelf life, NOT nutritional content. Synthetic compounds are used to increase crop yields, to add flavor, and to preserve food. Then we use synthetic vitamins and medications to treat deficiency diseases caused by depletion of life-giving nutritents. What a vicious cycle!
What are synthetic compounds?
Synthetic - noun; something resulting from synthesis rather than occuring naturally; especially: a product (as a drug or plastic) of chemical synthesis. Merriam-Webster Online Dic
Synthetic compounds are fake, false, artificial. They are not found in nature, they are the result of man-made alterations to nature. It seems that sooner or later most, if not all, of these synthetic compounds are found to cause some type of symptom pattern or disease.
Even "miracle" drugs are found to be the cause of disease, degeneration and sometimes death - sooner or later.
People are suffering and taking medications to stop the suffering. Medications come with long lists of side effects. One of the side effects appears to nutritional deficiency. When a person is suffering from a nutritional deficiency or the side effects of pollution of our air, water or food - Whole Food Is The Answer, not more synthetic compounds. Treat the cause - not the symptoms.
Only 50 years ago, baby formula was considered equal to mother's milk. Now it is laughable to think that people actually believed that a laboratory could make something equal to or better than Mother Nature. There are hundreds or nutrients, enzymes, co-enzymes, vitamins and minerals in mother's milk. Things scientists don't even know about yet and could not "create" if they did know about them are in mother's milk and in all natural foods. Go to www.promom.org/101/index.html The point? Mother's milk is an example of natures perfection in the feeding of human babies. After we are weaned fromour mother's milk our nutrition quality goes down fast. "Junk" and fast "foods" don't support health - only wholesome foods will.
It is suggested that much of our suffering, our disease and health deterioration is due to low quality nutritional support. We need to understand this and begin to make choices which will build our health rather than tear it down.
