Dead Food Kills

Can you imagine a future where you take a pill that gives you everything you need to survive? Perhaps you are a soldier in the field, all you have to carry to live for the week is seven tablets. You would think, if it were possible, that we would already be enjoying this product. The fact that we are not would seem to indicate that it takes more to live than vitamins and minerals. If if were so simple, we wouldn’t need to farm or cook to live, we could just count on the products of a pharmaceutical factory to input the stuff we need in its raw form, remove all of the things we don’t need that are in food, and put it back together as just the important parts.

When I was in elementary school we had two aquariums, each containing a white lab mouse. Every day during the experiment we gave one mouse a meal of real food and water. The other got processed foods. We thought it would like Fritos and potato chips. Instead of water, this mouse got Coke. After the experiment was over you could tell the difference just by looking. One mouse had a pretty coat of white fur, the other had a greasy, nasty looking appearance. We weighed them and monitored other things, but the difference was visible without even doing any of that.

Giving that mouse nothing but processed foods was the equivalent of giving the soldier nothing but a diet pill for nutrition. They fail for the same reason. Food cannot be reproduced in a lab. There are things that you need from your food that are put there by a billion years of evolution, and we can’t take a real food apart and reproduce it with just the necessary parts. Nobody knows what the necessary parts are.

There are symptoms that we experience when we are eating too much dead (processed) food. Like the lab rat’s appearance, our own appearance suffers. We gain weight. We get allergies. Our blood pressure goes up, our blood sugar goes up. We get acid reflux. We get gassy. Our joints and muscles ache. We get headaches.

Scientists in Australia have discovered that giving kids with a peanut allergy a bacteria from yogurt CURES 80% of them.

Researchers from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute have successfully trialled a treatment for peanut allergies that could potentially provide a long term cure for allergy sufferers.

Over 60 peanut allergic children in the study were either given a dose of a probiotic, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, together with peanut protein in increasing amounts, or a placebo over 18 months to assess whether children would become tolerant to peanut.

The implication here is that the children that have peanut allergies are suffering from a diet that has killed this bacteria in their bodies. Re-adding it to them allows them to tolerate whatever the irritant is in peanuts. This implies that even more of our common ailments might be because the dead food that we eat is not providing whatever the life-sustaining real foods that we should be eating do. There are things in wheat that are not in bread. There are things in cheese that are not in pasteurized processed cheese food product. The fact that processed foods will last forever and a day on the shelf is a problem for a living being to try and live off of them.

Life feeds on life. Eating nothing but re-constituted dead foods is turning out to be deadly. Eating raw vegetables will include something that eating even cooked vegetables do not, living bacteria on the plants. Eating raw vegetables that are grown without using herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers and pesticides will contain something that industrially produced vegetables will not–the plants own defenses from these attackers. Whatever the plant does to protect itself, when we eat it, we get it. Whatever beneficial bacteria on the surface of a natural plant are there are liable to be beneficial when we eat them. Our evolution might be expecting them, but we aren’t delivering it, because we are eating nothing but dead foods.
