The oldest woman in the world was asked her secret and she said, “I don’t eat junk food.” She’s 116 years old and still sharp. What hope is there for us when 90% of the grocery store products would qualify as junk food, full of chemicals and additives.
If you are interested in your health, the health of those you love and the health of the Planet, join me here. Our health is affected by our environment, our political and economic systems and our relationship to everything around us. We are interconnected with everyone on the planet. If we purchase items that cause harm to others across the world, our health is impacted. If we hold on to anger at others, if we keep dangerous secrets inside us and withhold love, we damage our health. This blog will deal with our food supply, our health care system, our environment as well as the economic and political factors that are affecting our well being. I will blog about books, including the ones I am writing, movies, articles and links to sites that can help us all stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. Now a toast, Here's To your HealthAsk me anything
Have you checked the yummie ingredients in your salad dressing lately? Here’s a few of the genetically modified and chemical items that make it taste sooooo good! Soybean and canola oil, propylene glycol alginate, corn syrup, titanium dioxide,sodium benzoate, maltodextrin, high fructose corn syrup, red #40, Blue#1, calcium disodium, disodium phosphate, monosodium glutamate, modified food starch, EDTA, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate just to mention a few. Ever think of making your own????
If you are chronically ill, your need to think about these questions - What am I drinking? (diet pop, drinks with chemicals) What am I eating? ( additives, chemicals, genetically modified products) What am I putting on my skin? (sunscreen,shampoo, hand creams) What am I using to clean/wash my dishes? All of these things have ingredients that can cause illness and compromise your immune system. Every day that you put these chemicals into your body, you make it more difficult for your body to heal.
Read all the labels of the food you are consuming and get rid of everything that contains chemicals, additives, soy, canola, corn syrup and all corn derivatives like dextrose. Go to the site - Institute for Responsible Technology for lists of foods, products etc that are safe. Check on the amount of chemicals in your vitamins, drugs, shampoos, cleaning products etc and go natural. You have been polluting your life for years, particularly if you live in the US. It might take years to clean them out.
