Although TV is easily one of the most BRAIN FRYING pieces of technology, watching education documentaries justifies a TV in my home. Here’s some of the notes I took last night from the documentary Food Matters:
1. Most of our food travels 1500-2000 miles and at least a week old before we eat it. We’re getting maybe 40% of the nutrients that we actually eat… not to mention that our soil is deficient of nutrients from all the pesticides, herbicides, fungicides sprayed on our soils… In short, anyone who says you can get all your nutrients from just whole foods is out to lunch…
2. Our societies values are all messed up… We are more concerned with paying rent, buying nice cars and getting the latest mobile devices instead of investing into the worlds greatest SUPER FOODS that are an INVESTMENT to our body…
3. You are what you eat. I actually prefer to say, “You are what you DON’T excrete!”
4. Less than 6% of medical doctors graduate with any nutritional knowledge in the United States.
5. The more food you cook, the more enzymes you lose. The more “raw” your plate, the more nutrients you’ll absorb. Strive for at least 50% per meal.
6. An alternative viewpoint to “Everything in moderation…” is “Moderation kills!” Sometimes the only way to win is to not play the game.
7. The ONLY time drugs should be used are for short-term or life-saving situations.
8. It’s NOT normal to be tired in the afternoon. You’re supposed to be ALIVE and VIBRANT.
9. Even if you eat plant based foods, there is a good chance you’re deficient
10. Ever find it interesting that your doctors WARNS you of the risks of taking supplements? “Supplements are dangerous/risky…” Really? Did you know that in the LAST 23 years there has only been TEN (10) deaths associated with vitamins/minerals?! And those aren’t even fully verified…. YET, in 23 years almost 2.5 million people will have died from pharmaceutical drugs, doctor prescribed, taken as directed! Why doesn’t the media report this?
11. The body has it’s own healing mechanisms and vitamins/minerals can cure literally dozens of ailments at once. It’s hard for the medical community to “get this” because they believe “1 drug = 1 disease”. How could 1 vitamin/mineral possibly cure dozens of diseases at once?! The reason is because a deficiency in ONE vitamin/mineral can results in DOZENS of illnesses.
12. It’s not the vitamins/minerals that heal your body but the fact they ENABLE your body to heal itself. When your body heals it heals. Isn’t it a doctors duty to help people get better? Why would a doctor not prescribe nutrients that help people heal? There is not ONE cell in the human body that is made out of a human drug. Giving a body drugs DOES NOT make your body healthier, it treats symptoms.
13. Most research uses very low doses of vitamins/minerals which is why many studies are often ambiguous or unimpressive…. which is often why you hear doctors and ‘experts’ say supplements are overrated etc.
14. Cardiovascular disease is a civilization disease i.e. it’s a disease of our society. Did you know that CVD is virtually unknown to entire populations of races.
15. CVD can be “REVERSED” with a diet high in fiber, primarily organic food and lots of plant based foods. CVD is a failure to take in healthy nutrients.
16. Sadly, there is no profit in selling plant based foods and stress free type lifestyles…
17. Did you know that adverse drug reaction deaths per year in the US is 10,000? Compared to 3000 motor vehicle deaths. Interesting how we’re more afraid of the later compared to our physicians recommendations….
18. Of course we need drugs but our society has bought into the belief that, “If a little is good, more must be better.” We’ve become reliant on taking a pill to fix an ill.
19. The drug industry is a half a trillion dollar industry. It wouldn’t make a lot of sense if everyone was healthy! Stock markets would crumble…
20. Drugs are regulated by drug companies! How would you feel if a restaurants hygiene policy was regulated by the restaurant owners? This is the problem with the pharmaceutical industry… These guys pay off the regulators… they pay off the academics…
21. Did you know that there are thousands of research papers showing that vitamins fix diseases but they are BLACK LISTED … many of them are NOT indexed in the US National Library of Medicine because medical research is one of the most powerful marketing weapons of drug companies.
22. Pharmaceutical companies need you to take drugs for a long to become profitable because drugs don’t cure people.
23. You need to start studying people who NEVER get diseases. What did they do? What are they doing? Would you take money advice from the guy at the pub recovering from a bad business idea?
24. We need to STOP being patients and START becoming people.
25. You don’t need a medical degree to be healthy. Start replacing wheat, corn and soy for SUPER FOODS.
26. The BEST doctor in the world is YOU. You have all the tools. Give yourself permission to listen to your body.
27. What is the ULTIMATE answer to better health and fixing the obesity epidemic? Believing that, “IF you want something done right, you need to do it yourself!” You have to walk the walk. You have to move. Take the vitamins. Chop the vegetables. Invest in the food.
When we choose QUALITY foods you will take the power back and prevent your body from being exposed to 50 random chemicals destroying your health and life.
Eating healthier is SIMPLE. It’s SAFE. It’s EFFECTIVE and it’s CHEAP. The ONLY reason people don’t do this is because they refuse to take RESPONSIBILITY for their lives.
