This is not a Halloween fantasy. It’s a real nightmare. Can you imagine a stealth, addictive drug, hiding in your food, which gives no nutrition, robs you and your family of their health, creates daily social and learning problems for you to deal with, decreases your income because of medical bills, shortens your life and makes big-business rich (that’s the real reason it is in your food) while creating ecological harm? Wouldn’t you want to know about it and then make plans to choose foods that ban it from your body?
Well, now you can know some of the at least 76 reasons to eliminate this substance from your diet and get a link to read more about this already-published-in-medical-journals’ science. Along the way, I’ll reveal the name of this thief-of-Health, this ghoul, this real wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing, which wears an unremarkable Halloween costume all year, so to blind you to its danger.
You’ll also learn about healthy substitutes so you can regain control over an important part of your Health.
Are you ready to act? These are some of the journal-published health implications likely waiting for you if you don’t eliminate this non-food and poisonous, addictive drug from your daily diet!
___ throws off your body’s homeostasis i.e. the delicate balance of your whole metabolism
___ suppresses your immune system and impairs your defenses against infectious disease
___ upsets the mineral relationships in your body: causing chromium deficiency (impacting insulin) as well as copper deficiency and interfering with vital alkaline mineral absorption of calcium and magnesium which regulate your life-saving pH balance
___ causes rapid, increased adrenaline resulting in: hyper-activity, difficulty concentrating, anxiety and crankiness — especially in children and slowing the ability of your adrenal glands to function properly, impacting your chances of acquiring diabetes
___ loss body-wide of your tissue flexibility and even tissue functionality, but especially in the eyes and lungs; gastro-intestinal tract malabsorption, serious indigestion, interferes with the absorption of proteins, increases incidence of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease and lack of fluid rentention for healthy bowel movements; affects blood pressure regulation, causes hardening of your arteries and aberrant cholesterol profiles; ages your skin and makes your tendons brittle; stresses and enlarges your liver and kidneys, increasing your risk of gout, interfering with proper electrolyte composition of your urine and increases chance of osteoporosis; causes toxemia during pregnancy and auto-immune diseases like arthritis, asthma and MS (multiple sclerosis)
___ damages your pancreas, reduces insulin sensitivity, and increases pH acidity body-wide because it is one of the most acidic compounds people ingest
___ increases your alpha, delta and theta brain waves which prevent you thinking clearly and also increases learning disabilities in children
___ causes depression as well as increases your chance for Alzheimer’s disease, dizziness, migraines and other headaches, causes mental and physical symptoms of addiction and intoxication, increases emotional instability, causes epileptic seizures, interferes with your appetite regulation and decreases learning capacity
___ induces cell death, increases your chance of cancer, significantly increases the chances of blood clots because of platelet adhesion and damages the linings of your capillaries
___ increases damage to your DNA and all tissues from free-radicals, and causes hormonal imbalances in sex hormones, growth hormone and others
So, do you want to know what the name of this guerilla poison is, which Americans ingest in unbelievable amounts — (statistics say as much as 2 1/2 pounds a week, per person!) ?
You need the answer, as Dr. Mercola says “About 85% of the population has elevated insulin levels that make them either pre-diabetic or diabetic” in America and huge numbers in any other country world-wide, too.
Well, here it is …. want to guess first?
It is not a benign “food”. It is not a food at all, and it does not belong in your body or your children’s. It is a processed, isolated, concentrated substance far-removed from the food sources it began in — sugar cane and beets. You would NEVER be able or want to eat the pounds of sugar cane or beets that you can easily ingest in a teaspoon or tablespoon of processed, refined sugar!
And, your body is NOT made to be able to “handle” that amount of sugar, either. You would never be able to get that much sugar on a daily hunter-gatherer diet, which your hundred-thousand year old Paleolithic biochemistry is used to!
You will have to work to eliminate refined sugar (“table sugar”) from your diet, but it is possible to do so AND it is possible to have the sweet-taste from other alternative foods, that we all enjoy without compromising our Health.
Next week I will talk about other sweet-villians and later, we’ll discuss healthy substitutes. Along the way, we’ll learn more about the biochemistry we need to understand … meanwhile, with all that Halloween candy beckoning, start strategizing how to have your family’s Health not undermined with this villan, which makes a few corporations and people rich while pesticides on cane fields rape the Earth and harm workers and burning the cane rubble seriously fouls the atmosphere and then, gives us poor health by inhalation as well as ingestion in foods.
And, by the way, Dr. Thomas Rau, MD reveals that the sugar processors use the dreaded poison, ARSENIC, in the refining of sugar, in his book “The Swiss Secret to Optimal Health”. Where else would you be exposed to arsenic in a food process?
Time to give your children healthy options to trade-in the majority of their bad candy for, and think about how to avoid exposing the neighborhood kids to this food danger, too, at Halloween Trick-or-Treat time.
I’ll try to post again at my regular time next Tuesday, but this week, I got caught with a half-finished article when I had to take my Mom to Emergency. She’s hopefully going to feel better in about a week. But, it was scary.
