America, The Nation of Drugs!

Leave a comment


Does it bother anyone else that we have become so drug oriented in our medicine? It would be OK if we were getting healthier but we are NOT! America is getting sicker and sicker. Insurance costs are alarmingly high. Most people, of all ages, are on some drugs. Only vegans seem to bypass this curse. When I watch TV commercials it’s amazing how many are for drugs. Then you watch beautiful scenery, nice people being happy as they read the many many side effects of the drug. I often sit there amazed that people take these drugs for a relatively minor symptom and have series side effects to deal with. Why?

I know some drugs are necessary and are helping people but most are just making money and causing serious side effects. I have been lucky with my diet I don’t take any drugs. My doctors are always amazed. Live right and be healthy. Live to be happy not just enduring it!

 

Why do we get sick?

With the power of nature and our epigenetics, why can’t our bodies adjust and keep us healthy? Nature takes millions of years to adjust to changes. Normally changes come slowly. When they o come fast they wipe out a major part of a species and those left need to adjust rapidly or go extinct. Both scenarios occur all the time. We are making changes to our bodies and environment at a very rapid degree. Our epigenetics tries to adjust but some of the changes cause conditions that can not be overcome! Take a diet that turns ON cancer genes and turns OFF tumor fighting genes. This makes it near impossible to fight the disease.

We have changed our environment in so many ways:

  1. Global warming
  2. Processed foods
  3. Not enough consumption of plants
  4. Stressful lives
  5. Negative thinking and beliefs
  6. Little or no exercise

This causes our bodies to be overwhelmed to the extent that our bodies become ill. All of these things are choices we all have. Make the right choice and you have a higher probability of health and extended life. Make the wrong ones and that probability drops rapidly. What choices do you make on the above items? How is your healthy? How many medications are you on? Choose wisely.

 

So What is Epigenetics Anyway – Part 4?

Leave a comment


OK we have this DNA which is used to build different protein structures. These are used to build cells, mechanisms inside each cell and to communicate between cells. Epigenetics tells the cell when and which DNA to use or to stop using. This is a very complex programming structure. Proteins can affect other cells and the methyl groups can turn one set of DNA ON while turning OFF another. This is why drug interactions is so complex. A drug can help in one area while creating serious problems in another. Somethings the resulting problems are worse than the original problem. Drug companies are fast at work researching how to change our epigenetics in  new drugs. I believe this is very dangerous. I don’t believe anyone today understands the extent of this programming. Playing with one small area can affect others unrelated areas.

Plants are the basis of modern medicine. Scientists know that plants have incredible healing powers. Drug companies find which substance in the plant affects a symptom, then they synthesize it into a drug. The problem is our bodies are more complex than this. Different substances play a role TOGETHER to help our cells. Playing with one at a time is very dangerous. Why are fruits (which contain sugar) good for us but sweets are so bad? It is because in a fruit the sugar is wrapped in fiber. The fiber acts like a time capsule, releasing a little sugar at a time over a long period of time. Sweets dump sugar on our system all at once.

Nature is a symbiotic relationship between animals and plants. We can not survive without plants. The missing amino acids that our DNA uses to build need proteins only come from plants! Yes they are in meat but because that animal ate plants. So they are there indirectly. If you or your family are eating a diet of little of no plants, you are running a huge risk of chronic illness. Change your diet today.

 

Are we being Marketed to be sick?

My brother, Ray, told me about this article by Katie Couric on junk food. Watch the video at this site. We are being hijacked into buying junk food. This article says:

It’s a quote from Dr. David Kessler, who was the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from 1990 to 1997, where he worked extensively on enforcing tobacco regulations. But now he’s turned his attention on the next great American health crisis — how and what we eat. It’s the subject of the eye-opening new film “Fed Up” from executive producers Katie Couric (Yahoo’s global news anchor) and Laurie David (“An Inconvenient Truth”)

We can’t watch TV, listen to the radio, walk down the street or drive without marketing hijacking our brains. The two biggest hijackers are drugs and food. Yes we need to eat food but most is junk food and processed foods that have more chemicals in them than nutrients. This hijacking has caused the biggest epidemic of illness in our nations history. We are loosing and will continue to lose more Americans to drug reactions and improper diet than all the wars combined. Why? Greed! Drugs and the food industry are big business.

 

Nature or Man Made?

Leave a comment


I find it ironic that so many studies are showing the positive effects of natural foods (natures pills). They prevent almost every disease that we get and they can cure disease we already have. The solution is so easy and so inexpensive. No marketing on TV just eat more plant-based foods and less animal-based foods. Diseases have reached a critical point in our country. The cost of insurance is rising. How much more can it rise before the system fails? The alternative is the American Cure all System, DRUGS! If you watch enough TV you will believe there is a pill for everything. The side effects can be horrible and even life threatening. So why do we choose a man-made pill over natures natural solution? It’s marketing 101. People believe what they hear on TV and radio. We believe getting old is the problem, when it’s not. We believe everyone gets sick, but they don’t. We believe the only solution is drugs, It’s not! You have a choice, choose wisely. The truth is vegans do live longer, happier and healthier. They almost never get a chronic illness.

Why do we have Junk Food?

Junk food is one of the most profitable businesses around! Dr Greger, in his video below, says Coca Cola is as profitable as tobacco. Unhealthy food is profitable. First you pay when you buy this food so a company can turn over insane profit margins and then you pay again as you get sick for your health care. We are all paying too much for healthy care because many of our Americans are eating way too much junk food. These companies know how to use sugar and other chemicals to addict you to their products. I believe in the American system of making money but when companies make excessive profits at the cost of American health, it is not OK! Our government looks the other way because of lobbies. Only you can change this situation. Just stop buying unhealthy foods! Watch your family get healthier and watch your savings go up.

As if this is not enough, we are subsidizing these industries with our tax dollars. Our government subsidizes companies in the production of animal products and sugar production. Both of these have changed our diets since World War II. Both sugar and animal protein are linked to many diseases including cancer and heart disease. Why do we do it? Getting sick fuels the other hugh money making industry, the drug industry.
