Week 60 – Why we are overweight & starving!
TODAY MANY OF US ARE OVER EATING, OVER WEIGHT, NOT FEELING OUR BEST, LACKING THE ENERGY WE DESIRE, NOT PERFORMING TO OUR POTENTIAL, FEELING OLDER THAN WE SHOULD, AND LIVING A LIFE LACKING WHAT WE REQUIRE TO BE FULFILLED!
Once upon a time, we could get all the nutrition we needed from the beautiful abundance from the earth. But we humans have taken grave advantage of that over the decades and we have literally stripped our soil of the nutrients we require. Without minerals, our bodies cannot function, we are a hot mess, literally.
To be Healthy, stay trim & fit, perform at our best, and age gracefully, we require the Macro and Micro nutrients that are in our food. However, modern Farming practices have led to a ever increasing decline in the nutrients in our fruit & vegetables.
Farmers today can grow two to three times as much grain, fruit, and vegetables on a plot of land as they could 50 years ago, but the nutritional quality of many crops has declined, according to a new report from The Organic Center, a group based in Boulder, Colorado.
Check out the %change in this chart from 1914-1992 and then consider the fact that we are in 2016, now. Yikes!
To get our recommended daily allowance of nutrients, we have to eat many more slices of bread today than people had to eat in the past,” notes report author and Worldwatch Institute food expert Brian Halweil.
We have to eat more to get the nutrients we require. We are eating more than ever and at the same time starving for nutrients!
“Less nutrition per calorie consumed affects consumers in much in the same way as monetary inflation; that is, we have more food, but it’s worth less in terms of nutritional value.”
Not only do they tend to have less of what we require nutritionally, but they threaten our health and wellness with GMO, herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, preservatives, food additives, chemical treatments all to increase yield and profits.
Plants cultivated to produce higher yields tend to have less energy for other activities like growing deep roots and generating phytochemicals—health-promoting compounds like antioxidants—the report explains. And conventional farming methods, such as close plant spacing and the application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, often cause crops to absorb fewer nutrients and have unhealthy root systems and less flavor, and sometimes make them more vulnerable to pests.
Thankful, our Founder and Master Formulator, John Anderson is revered as a genius at his craft and is touted as “The Mineral Man”.
