Fake Food = Fake Health


Do you know what is in the food you are eating?  If you are like the typical American family, the food you are eating isn't real food.  It is fake food.  If you eat fake food, you will have fake health.

I was watching a movie about the food Americans eat and it stated that you could eat 10,000 calories a day and your body could still be starving.  Most food Americans eat has no nutritional value that the body desperately needs.

You wonder why cancer is becoming more and more common.  I was following the treatment of a young boy getting cancer treatments.  They put him in a hospital room, under fluorescent lights, filled him with a ton of toxic chemicals and then I read he was eating donuts and drinking soda.  Crazy!

It seems he should be in as much fresh air as possible, getting some sunlight and exercise, and eating fresh, organic foods. 

All processed food {almost everything in a box} is detrimental to your health.  If you read the label and can't understand the ingredients, don't eat a lot of it.  This is why I decided to stop eating candy very often, except chocolate, of course.  All of the ingredients are chemicals.

They have discovered that diet sodas and caffeine are causing numerous diseases including Alzheimer's, neurological disorders, etc.   Read the label on sodas.  There is nothing nutritious in them.  To think you can drink or eat anything you want without it affecting your health is foolish.

According toDr. Mercola, aspartame {artificial sweetener} is one of the most dangerous chemicals in our food ~

Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include:

Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain.

Start taking control of your health and eat real food.  God knew what He was doing when He created food for us.  Trust Him.  He didn't create food with a bunch of antibiotics, preservatives, and man-made hormones.  As my mom used to say, "God didn't make no ding dongs!"

Eat food that goes bad after a few days.  If it last for a long time, it isn't good for you.  Be wise.  Be educated and start taking control of your health, but always remember that relationships with others and loving God is way more important that what you eat!

Give me neither poverty nor riches,
Feed me with the food that is my portion.
Proverbs 30:8
