Chemicals and Additives
'We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavours and furniture polish is made from real lemons.'
Alfred E. Newman
There is never one thing alone that causes ill health or disease - it will always be a combination of many things - BUT - if there were one aspect of our diet that is more irritating than any other - I believe it would be the addition of all the chemicals - the inorganic, lifeless, poisonous chemicals that are listed on the containers of the foodstuffs that occupy the shelves of the supermarkets.
Let's face it folks - we are 'organic by nature.'
The body cannot efficiently utilize inorganic matter.
It will be forced to either lay it down somewhere or attempt to eliminate it - either way - a total waste of energy.
There are thousands of food additives and chemicals in common use by the world's food industry.
Since the USDA no longer provides data on the amount of additives consumed by the average person (in the Western world) we have to extrapolate a little bit.
In 1979 the USDA determined that each person consumed up to ¾ of a ton of food each year - of that, additives made up less than 1%.
If we increase the amount of food consumed over the past 30 yeas we could reasonably expect each person to be ingesting up to and over ½ ounce of additives per day.
The Columbia Encyclopaedia tells us that food additives comprise approximately 10% (about 150 lbs) of the food consumed by the average American adult.
The laboratory CANNOT duplicate 'mother nature.
Additives' are simply chemicals that resemble 'qualities' of food in name only.
They have no life force.
And I might add - that all vitamins, supplements, tonics and tinctures that are produced and sold in shops - they have no life force either - they can stimulate - or they can depress the nervous system - but that's it.
If you want real health - not just a shine on the surface with the furniture polish - eat the real deal - chemicals are just the peel of the fruit - they cannot build health.
All the best for your health and happiness,
