Why 80% of People Worldwide Will Soon Stop Eating Wheat

The future of wheat is certain, and it’s toxic. There are as many health risks associated with the consumption of wheat as there are nutritional benefits claimed by the wheat industry. Why is there such a strong emphasis on the development of wheat products all over the world when there are so many adverse and crippling effects such as neurological impairment, dementia, heart disease, cataracts, diabetes, arthritis and visceral fat accumulation, not to mention the full range of intolerances and bloating now experienced by millions of people?

3 Ingredients to Stop Feeding Your Kids

1. High Fructose Corn Syrup
It’s hard to find a processed food without High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), although it’s easier than it used to be.
The Corn Growers Association and other special interest groups that have a direct monetary stake in the continuance of turning genetically modified corn into a sweetener that populates seemingly every product on every grocery store aisle are constantly insisting that HFCS is the same as sugar or any other sweetener – except that it’s not.
high fructose corn syrupPart of what makes HFCS such an unhealthy product is that it is metabolized to fat in your body far more rapidly than any other sugar, and, because most fructose is consumed in liquid form, its negative metabolic effects are significantly magnified.
HFCS has been linked to diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Additionally, HFCS is made from genetically modified corn, which brings on a host of other issues. Continue reading

You are what you eat…

It is encouraging to see some of the main stream scientists talking about things as they really are, without promoting anything or trying to deceive the public for personal gain. You probably won’t find it in your daily paper, therefore I translated the text to English for you.

An interview with Prof. Mark Naruszewicz PhD, one of the  leading Polish scientists, about a recent study on the effects of our diet on the body.

– What are the scientists from the Institute of Food and Nutrition working on ?
We work in the field of nutrigenomics. It is a knowledge which is very rapidly developing, dealing with the impact of nutrition on gene expression. Today we know that what we eat directly affects our genetic material.

immune-system– Can you explain that a bit more?
Each gene is a single protein. Human physiology is based on the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It turns out that the fatty acids regulate gene expression. In other words, the type of fatty acid consumed determines human growth, the development of the central nervous system and other defence mechanisms, including immunological functions. A factor that best stimulates our genetic material to develop properly are unsaturated fatty acids, derived from plants and fish. Hence a lot of pressure from all medical societies, to change our diet and started eating what is compatible with our physiology. Continue reading

So… where to get our food supplies

One country seems to be off the list immediately. I’m sure most of you have  heard a few horror stories about animal treatment in China, however it doesn’t stop there. It’s the food quality in general and it seems that organic is not much better!

You need to make your own choices, but this article may help you along the way:

If you are not, however, you may wish to follow this link about the United States’ organic food deception to help you make an informed decision when buying organic from ‘big brands’. Continue reading
