We've got it made here in the USA, don't we?
The richest country in the world...every modern convenience...best of everything...land of opportunity...
So we should be the healthiest, happiest people that live longer than anyone else, right?
Not even close!
Here's the truth:
- 2 out of 3 people are overweight, often MASSIVELY.
- HALF have at least one chronic disease including asthma, diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.
- Nearly half of us take at least one prescription drug...and many take 4, 5 or more every single day.
- Women in 48 other countries and men in 44 other countries live LONGER than we do.
Well, the single biggest difference between the US and other countries lies in the choices we have available to us and how we make those choices.
- We CHOOSE to eat fast food and processed food.
- We CHOOSE to sit on our butts, flipping through 700 TV channels, surfing the net instead of moving our booties.
- We CHOOSE to take prescription drugs instead of improving our health with proper diet, exercise and natural supplementation. I call that having the "Magic Pill Mentality."
But, alas, we have LOTS of help with those choices.
Processed food manufacturers, fast food corporations and pharmaceutical companies know we'll eat anything as long as it tastes good, smells good and feels good in our mouth. A snappy jingle doesn't hurt either.
And they are more than happy fill their pockets at the price of our health and our lives. Since the FDA acknowledges that there are at least 50 toxic substances in the avg US consumer's weekly grocery cart, what's being done to us is like legalized murder.
I saw a commercial where a fast food chain was boasting about how they give money to help fight breast cancer. That's a joke, considering
that their foods are contributing to the breast cancer epidemic.
It's called greed, my friend.
Let's take a peek at how these companies make us sick and even kill us in the name of profits:
Food manufacturers (aka food giants)
The garbage put out by food manufacturers is a travesty against humanity.
The fact that it's even called "food" is ridiculous.
These companies start out with real food ingredients. But then they're destroyed by various processes -- heating, bleaching, drying, fragmenting, freeze drying, evaporating, etc. -- until they in no way resemble real food, either in taste, appearance or nutritionally.
Then chemicals are added -- coloring, preservatives, artificial flavors, appearance enhancers and texture modifiers.
Not only do the chemicals make the junk taste unbelievably good, but they also cause you to become addicted to it.
Now food giants also know that they have to make this junk appear to be healthy for you. So they sprinkle in some artificial vitamins and nutrients since the original ones in the food have been processed out.
"Hooray! Now it looks healthy and we can buffalo people into buying it."
Colorful packaging, a cartoon spokesperson, a catchy jingle and a $1 off coupon complete the illusion, and voila' -- boxes and bags of "food" that we scarf down by the tanker full each week.
Your mind may believe this stuff is food.
But your body isn't fooled...
When you put garbage into your body, your body turns into garbage and garbage is what comes out:
* Lots of excess digestive acid is produced in an effort to digest this trash, since your system was never meant to digest non-food and man-made chemicals. Hello GERD and acid reflux and ulcers.
* Toxic wastes are produced that gunk up your colon. Then it seeps into your bloodstream, lighting fires of inflammation all over and creating the perfect environment for diseases (including cancer) to flourish.
* Plus, you're constantly hungry because you haven't been nourished with the REAL food your body needs in order to thrive. So you eat more... and get wider and wider and wider.
Boy oh boy, aren't Kellogg's, Nestle, General Mills, PepsiCo and Kraft just grand?
Fast food companies
They're no different than the food processors.
The stuff they serve is about as good for you as shredded cardboard.
The drug companies claim that their products can work magic -- lower your cholesterol, end depression, reverse osteoporosis, eliminate allergies, lower blood pressure, etc.
But if prescription drugs are so GOOD for you, where are all the vibrant, healthy medicated people?
I haven't seen any yet.
Now, the scary part of drug development is that the drug companies fail to look at the big picture when developing their latest legalized poison....er, I mean drug.
Here's what I mean:
During development, prescription drugs are designed to target a single measurable problem/symptom, such as high cholesterol or blood pressure.
There are thousands of "targets" like these in our bodies, and if a specific drug can affect any of them in a positive way (without killing too many people during the clinical trials!) the FDA declares it to be "safe and effective" after testing on people for just mere weeks in many cases. Long-term side-effects are often purposely hidden.
Just watch Pfizer's or GlaxoSmithKline's stock shoot up on those days!
But here's the side you NEVER hear about:
A drug MAY positively impact a certain health issue. But every drug has effects on the rest of your body, and these effects are not accurately measured (or admitted to) in the clinical trials.
For example, statins can lower cholesterol. But they do this by hampering your liver's ability to create ALL types of cholesterol, including "good" (HDL) cholesterol, as well as important hormones that your body makes from cholesterol. So, these drugs have harmed and literally killed many hundreds of thousands of people. That is not in the commercials.
So while statins have one measurable, positive effect measured by a blood test, they simultaneously throw off your body's healthy functioning in numerous other ways, including ruining your sex drive.
Clinical trials are not concerned about these "other" effects -- they're just hell bent on proving one thing and getting FDA approval to market the drug as a miracle cholesterol fighter.
And here's the real kicker: When clinical trial participants (aka guinea pigs) start showing some of the bad effects, they're typically "dismissed" from the trial in order to ensure that the trial results look positive.
Betcha didn't know that, huh?
This helps to ensure that even the most dangerous drugs are actually approved by the FDA as "safe." Crazy. But this is how the system works.
So what can you do?
You may be wondering, how you can get to and stay at your ideal weight, get truly healthy and get off and stay off medications.
I hope you are, because life's short enough already.
There are a few very important things you can do:
1) Stay FAR away from processed foods and fast food
If you can't tell what it looked like in nature by the picture on the box, bag, can or bottle, it's probably not going to support you in reaching your health goals.
Instead of unnatural toxic prescription drugs, go with the best natural supplements you can find.
2) Get some form of regular exercise, at least 4-5 days a week
You don't need a gym membership or fancy equipment. Walking is fine, and just about anyone can do that.
3) Eat foods nourishing foods that help keep acid and toxins low
