Why The Food You Eat Is Dead
certainly feel that the time is not far distant when a knowledge of the
principles of diet will be an essential part of one's education. Then
mankind will eat to live, be able to do better mental and physical work
and disease will be less frequent.
- Fannie Farmer, American culinary expert (1857-1915)
Fannie Farmer was mistaken. We did not learn because the knowledge we
need was not incorporated into our education system. In our ignorance,
while we were busy with other things, the food, drug and chemical
industries collaborated to make us a sick society, one that would
forever be dependant on doctors and drugs. Or, in the case of the poor,
dependant on dying as a form of relief.
Could this be true? Is
it even possible? Does it sound like a conspiracy theory? Yes to all.
The evidence is all around us. Cancer, muscular dystrophy, autoimmune
diseases, viral infections are commonplace today whereas they were rare
just a couple of generations ago.
There must be some
explanation. We live in a world--in the west known as a rich
world--filled with people with poor health, with compromised health
problems that impact every day of their lives. We have all the food we
want, we have the ability to exercise and get advice about how to live
healthy lives, but we don't and can't.
We rush around making
money but never take the time to develop our greatest source of wealth,
our health. Inevitably, our accumulated wealth goes to pay for the
consequences of our poor health practices.
These problems were
not common in the past. Our ancestors had many problems but illnesses
from today's most common diseases were not prominent among them. There
must be something we don't know. We need to change or we will be
unhealthy with illness and physical incapacities ourselves. It will
happen. It is happening around us. If not to ourselves than to others
There are a few who know, a multitude who don't know
and a massive number who are in denial. "It couldn't be that bad."
"They wouldn't do that to us." Yes, alas, they would. All for the sake
Denial that a problem exists is the worst problem we
have. Until we admit that we have a problem with the food we eat, the
beverages we drink, the water we drink and use every day and the air we
breathe every moment, we will have no way to address our own health.
can begin by learning about the studies that have been done that show
exactly how the factors just listed impact our lives in negative ways.
Thanks to the internet this task is easy. Not fast, but easy if you
want to take the time to learn. It is, after all, your life we are
talking about. How long you will live. How healthy or sick and impaired
you will be in the last decades of your life.
You can begin
learning about how what is happening around you and what you eat (not
the quantity or the foods themselves but the quality of them) has such
a negative effect on your life. You can begin with this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Esk7k5KkhXE Dr. Tent's presentation (2 hr.)
R.E. Tent is a doctor of naturopathy and chiropractic. He has nothing
to sell in his videos. His purpose is to inform. To inform those who
wish to learn. There will always be those who deny that the food they
eat could be as lacking in nutrients (that used to be natural and
normal but are no longer) and often harmful. Dr. Tent has no interest
in arguing with these people. He has patients to heal. He shows you how
in the video.
If you prefer to learn through videos, I recommend that you go to YouTube.com and search the word "health".
If you are up to learning by reading, put "nutrition health" into your favourite search engine.
first watch Dr. Tent's video to learn why you need to learn so much
about how your health is being damaged and how you can fix it.
