Do you eat healthy? Really? Check your refrigerator, freezer and pantry! How many frozen food items, boxes, cans and bags are there? These are all processed foods. Each of these contain either preservatives, sugars, fats or salt. Some contain multiple of these and some contain all of them. Processed sugar leads to diabetes and weight issues. It can also feed cancers. Salts lead to high blood pressure issues. Remember you get a lot more salt from processed foods (without any taste of salt) than you do from a salt shaker. Then you probably add salt for taste. Fats are in two categories good fats like in avocados and bad fats like saturated fats. Frying is bad in two ways you get saturated fats and the temperature causes fats to burn which is carcinogenic. Preservatives kill bacteria but they also kill our cells which causes problems within us. All life has similar cell structure. If it can kill bacteria or bugs it can kill your cells. You may not drop over dead but it is affecting your body.
Eat really healthy. If it grows and is organic eat it! If you have to eat meat, eat organic fed meats and limit the amount of meat, eggs, milk and cheese you eat.

Dr Greger says eating legumes reduces the risk of diabetes. It also lowers body weight as well. Watch the video below for details! Beans are a powerful food but they are one type of plant protein. You should be eating many types of plant protein. Choose from dark colors like reds, greens, oranges and yellows. Eat all types of vegetables including legumes. I enjoy a vegetable stir fry. Use a WOK to sauté a variety of vegetables with garlic and ginger until al dente. Then mix in some soy sauce. Sever over brown rice. This is a very nutritious meal that provides many servings of vegetables. There is some oil for brain function as well. Mix up different vegetables each time. I love soy beans, broccoli, broccoli robe, string beans, peppers, bok choy and many others. Mix, try and see what you like. Healthy eating and a healthy life! Try this without any meat for days when you avoid animal protein.

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.

PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) says not only can you prevent heart decease with a plant-based diet but if you already have it, you can reverse it! 198 patients with cardiovascular decease were put on a diet free of meat, fish, diary and added oils. 89% of the participants followed the diet and 81% improved their disease. In addition these patients lost an average of 18.7 pounds. 22% saw a complete reversal of the disease.
Disease is our bodies way of saying we are providing it with inferior food and air. It can no longer function properly so it begins to break down. Like a city that breaks down, you can decide to change it. Clean it up and revitalize it again. Is your body working with inferior products?

There are so many toxins in farmed fish, it should be avoided. Dr Greger says being obese brings back these pollutants from our own fat. So we need to be aware where we buy our foods and keep our bodies lean. Our fat stores bad chemicals that can make us sick for a long long time. These toxins are stored in our fat cells. As the fat cell is used, it releases the toxins back into our body. Everything seems to be polluted today and we can’t avoid it 100% but we should be aware so when there is a choice, we choose the best option. Vegans have the best results here since they do not eat any fish or animal protein.

Eating unhealthy have an 8 times better chance of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Dr Greger says heating oils hot to fry foods like donuts, french fries and fried fish or chicken is carcinogenic. Watch the video below. More and more the studies show eating has the largest impact on our health. You say but everyone eats french fries and fried fish or chicken right? Yes and most people are getting cancer! If you don’t care about health issues, eat away. If you do care about the long-term effects on your health and your family’s health, change your eating habits. If you get out of the group of “everyone eats french fries and fried fish or chicken” you can also get out of the group of “Everyone gets cancer”!
