No one will guard your health, its up to you.

 

If you let your car go, never changed the oil gave it a tune up

 

Checked the transmission fluid

 

There will come problems.

 

So too you Body

 

Take care of it !

 

You can’t afford to brake down on the side of the road

 

In pain.

 

Here are some very important things you need to know so to live long and be healthy

 

You need to emphasize healthy eating and avoiding harmful components in food. A consideration of healthy eating is learning what ingredients to avoid.

 

Harmful additives in your food destroy your health.

Yes, these food additives, common in most packaged foods

  • give you cancer

  • cause you to get diabetes

  • give you heart disease

  • make you have high blood pressure

  • cause hormone imbalances

Many causes of death and disease are preventable

1.) Sodium Nitrite – Sodium Nitrite is a preservative that is usually present in salami, pepperoni, ham, bacon, hot dogs and other forms of processed meats. The reason why Sodium Nitrite is added to meats is because it preserves the red/pinkish color of the meat and gives it a fresh appearance, and also prevents botulism to some extent.

 

However when ingested in large amounts, sodium nitrite reacts with the stomach acids to produce nitrosamines, the main cause for cancer amongst animals.

 

Sodium nitrite consumption is also known to trigger migraine pains, and COPD form of lung diseases.  Non-red meats such as chicken, tuna are comparatively safer as they do not have nitrates in them.

 

WHITE SUGAR and HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

The average American consumes 150 pounds of sugar a year compared to the 12 pounds consumed in the early 1800s.

Becoming obese is just one of the many side-effects of consuming too many carbohydrates in the form of sugar. Sugar adversely effects the body’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and blood pressure; it contributes to kidney stones and failure, learning disabilities, diverticulosis, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, candida, anxiety, hyperactivity in children, dental cavities, adult-onset diabetes, atherosclerosis, and countless others.

 

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a sweet syrupy liquid which is cheaper and easier for many companies to use than sugar.

 

TRANS-FAT – HYDROGENATED – PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL

 

trans fatty acids (hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils) have been liked to diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease (even low levels of trans fats in the diet — a mere 1-2% of calories per day — were linked to a substantially increased risk of heart disease). Several large studies indicate a strong link between shortened life and consumption of high amounts of trans-fat. They also decrease the desirable HDL cholesterol levels. The net effect of trans fats is double that of saturated fatty acids.

Hydrogenation results in a residue of toxic metals, usually nickel and aluminum, which are left behind in the finished product. These metals are used as catalysts in the reaction, but they accumulate in our cells and nervous system where they poison enzyme systems and alter cellular functions, endangering health and causing a wide variety of problems.

 

Do not fry or sauté with “polyunsaturated” light oils

Any ‘food that lists hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” on the label contains trans-fats and should be avoided. Avoid products containing cottonseed oil. Cotton is not considered a food crop and is heavily sprayed with highly toxic pesticides — some of which wind up in the oil. Do not fry or sauté with “polyunsaturated” light oils such as safflower, sunflower or corn oils. They oxidize readily into damaging free radicals at high temperatures.

 

Organic flaxseed oil has the highest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. Use butter instead of margarine or shortening in cooking.

 

Manufacturers have created non-hydrogenated margarine, which is now widely available. Non-hydrogenated margarine contains no trans fat, and it’s softer than the first-generation margarine stick. If you’re going to eat margarine, CHOOSE SOFT MARGARINE. Here are some brands of “cholesterol-lowering” spread: * Becel * Benecol * Blue Bonnet Soft Spread * Canola Harvest Non-Hydrogenated * I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter * Promise * Smart Balance Light.

Excitotoxins – Excitotoxins are basically amino acids that also function as neurotransmitters in the brain. But when brain cells are exposed to this chemical in large amounts (through dietary consumption), they become over-excited. During this stage, the nerve and brain cells fire their impulses rapidly until they reach extreme exhaustion, a near-death state.

 

Commonly found in canned soups, diet soda, sausages, salad dressing and processed vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods. Excitotoxins are used as a flavoring agent in most such foods, but an over-dose of it can destroy the nerve cells.  Since the protective enzymes in a baby’s brain are not fully developed, they are unable to detoxify the Excitotoxins that enter its brain. This is why pregnant women and young children should completely avoid foods containing even small amount of Excitotoxins.

 

The two most common forms of Excitotoxins are – Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and Aspartate.

 

 

MSG

 

MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans) to become obese. It can also cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children’s nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties. It’s crazy that FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food.Many items that don’t have MSG listed often have something called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. Large amounts of processed MSG fed to infant mice destroyed brain nerve cells.  Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG * Monosodium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Hydrolyzed Protein, Hydrolyzed Plant Protein, Plant Protein Extract, Sodium Caseinate, Calcium Caseinate, Yeast Autolysate & Extract, Brewer’s & Nutritinal Yeast, Textured Protein (Including TVP), Autolyzed Yeast, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Corn Oil.

Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are frequently added to foods and according to FDA rules require NO LABELING AT ALL.

 

Aspartate is another excitotoxin that is widely used as an artificial sweetener in soft drinks, cereals, ice creams and so on. Aspartame (pre-cursor to aspartate) is known to cause various neuropsychiatric disorders such as panic attacks, mood swings, dizziness, blackouts .

 

 

ASPARTAME SWEETENER

Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers aspartame safe, some scientists believe this the most dangerous substance added to foods. Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death as recently disclosed in a February 1994 Department of Health and Human Services report.

 

SORBITOL SWEETENER

Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol the body metabolises slowly. Sorbitol is a sugar substitute often used in diet foods (including diet drinks and ice cream) and sugar-free chewing gum. Sorbitol can be used as a non-stimulant laxative by either in oral suspension or suppository form. The drug works by drawing water into the large intestine, thereby stimulating bowel movements. Ingesting large amounts of sorbitol can lead to some abdominal pain, gas, and mild to severe diarrhea. Sorbitol can also aggravate irritable bowel syndrome and fructose malabsorption. And an excessive chewing gum habit can cause severe illness and weight loss, researchers warn (11/01/2008). Doctors found that two patients who suffered diarrhea, malnutrition and weight loss chewed up to 20 sticks of gum a day containing sorbitol

 

What Is SPLENDA?

Although Splenda, aka sucralose, is advertised as “Made from sugar,” Splenda is not natural – it is a synthesized chemical composed of one molecule of sugar, where three hydroxyl groups are replaced with chlorine. Chlorination makes the sugar in Splenda unavailable to digestive enzymes – hence no calories. Not a single long-term clinical study was conducted prior to gaining FDA’s approval of sucraose as a food additive.

 

NATURAL & ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS

 

By the way, a natural flavor is not necessarily more healthful or purer than an artificial one. When almond flavor — benzaldehyde — is derived from natural sources, such as peach and apricot pits, it contains traces of hydrogen cyanide, a deadly poison.

 

Adding methyl-2-pyridyl ketone makes something taste like popcorn. Adding ethyl-3-hydroxy butanoate makes it taste like marshmallow. And Ethyl-2-methyl butyrate smells just like an apple.The possibilities are now almost limitless. They are all synthesized chemicals that don’t even have common names, but do you recognize some components? Yes, most artificial flavorings are derived from petroleum, and many are volatile. They may affect RNA, thyroid, and enzymes, unbelievably, most have not been studied for safety or toxicity.

 

A typical artificial strawberry flavor, for example found in Burger King’s strawberry milk shake, contains a veritable cocktail of chemicals: amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate, butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamyl valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl acetate, ethyl amyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl heptylate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerate, heliotropin, hydroxyphenyl-2-butanone (10 percent solution in alcohol), a-ionone, isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butyrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbonate, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl salicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobutyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, rose, rum ether, g-undecalactone, vanillin, and solvent.

 

WTF

BHA and BHT – Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA) and Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) are used to preserve fats and inhibit the formation of yeast. Food products such as butter, chips, beer, cereals, dehydrated potatoes, meats etc contain BHT and BHA.  Both BHA and BHT are antioxidants that oxidize the fats, thereby protecting the food products from going rancid.

 

However, ingesting these preservatives can cause serious health problems. BHT and BHA are known to cause metabolic stress, weight loss, liver damage, growth retardation and fetal abnormalities. These are also the cause of hyperactivity and other behavioral disorders in children.

 

Anecdotal reports suggest that BHA and BHT can increase the risk of cancer (suspected carcinogens) and get accumulated in body tissues causing several health problems. These are also known to cause liver enlargement and cell retardation. Up to 13% of BHT is absorbed by the skin, which can result in contact dermatitis and other skin problems.

 

ARTIFICIAL COLORINGS

 

You’ll also find “artificial colour” in just about every processed food

 

Food colouring serves many of the same decorative purposes as lipstick, eye shadow, mascara – and is often made from the same pigments. Titanium dioxide, for example, has proved to be an especially versatile mineral. It gives many processed sweets, frostings and icings their bright white colour; it is a common ingredient in women’s cosmetics; and it is the pigment used in many white oil paints and house paints.

 

On June 4, 2008, the nonprofit watchdog group the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has petitioned the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ban the artificial food colourings it refers to as the “secret shame” of the food and industry and its regulators. The dyes at issue are Yellow 5 and 6, Red 40 and 3, Blue 1 and 2, Green 3 and Orange B. The CSPI said the UK had already banned some of these.

 

SODIUM / SALT

We don’t know exactly how salt works to elevate blood pressure. But the best guess is that too much salt causes the sodium channels (structures that move sodium into and out of cells) to work too hard and gradually the channels begin to fail. This process is irreversible, so that by old age, even if people cut back on salt, their kidneys can no longer flush extra amounts of salt from the body without an increase in blood pressure. Salt may also be linked to other health problems such as aggravating asthma, gastric cancer, and kidney stones.

Table salt is 40% sodium; 1 teaspoon of table salt contains 2,300 mg of sodium. The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences recommends 1,200 to 1,500 mg of sodium each day for adults. Persons with high blood pressure should have no more than 2,300 mg of sodium a day. Those with congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis, and kidney disease may need much lower amounts.

Although this product won’t make SUPER greasy foods completely fat free, it will reduce the fat in your usual recipes by quite a bit. It is FDA approved and it whisks tablespoons of fat away as you cook. Who needs the extra fat? Not us
