Good Food Bad Food
I want to talk about why the book is so important. What we need to know is there’s two ways to eat. One is the correct way, and the other is the incorrect way. Pretty simple, right? One is the correct way, and the other is the incorrect way. One way will accelerate your aging process, and the other will keep you younger than your real age. We all desire to look younger, and feel younger, don’t we? I believe we do.
One of the best ways to accomplish this is by eating the right foods. If you’re eating what most people think is good food, then you’re probably not eating correctly. Even if you’re eating what you think is nutritious food, and it’s cooked, this food is lacking vital nutrition. If you’re eating a lot of fast food, then for sure you’re not eating correctly. You may be eating three meals a day, feel full, and yet be starving your body if you’re eating the wrong food. If you don’t provide yourselves with the proper nutrition, they will not be able to function properly, and you will age prematurely. That’s a guarantee, by the way.
Your body is very resilient, and it even has the capacity to heal itself, but only when it’s being fed the right food, the nutritious food. We don’t want you to eat incorrectly or age prematurely. I don’t think you do either. We want you to look young, feel young, be vibrant, and be excited about life. Not wake up needing three cups of coffee. That will actually cause you to age prematurely for sure. This is why we wrote the book. Remember this: all food is not created equal. There are foods that provide nutrition for your cells, and there are foods that do not.
You may never stop to consider the nutritional value of the food you’re eating. You may never even look at labels. I absolutely look at labels. After you read this book, you’ll look at labels too a lot differently. Food can nourish your cells, your organs, and your body systems, or it can destroy your cells, organs, and your body systems. That’s why you need to know more about the value of food you are eating. Remember, the Bible says my people perish for a lack of knowledge. We don’t want you perishing for a lack of knowledge. That’s why we wrote the book.
You must take responsibility. That’s you must take responsibility for your health. No one else is going to take responsibility for your health if you don’t take responsibility. When you get sick, doctors will attempt to get you well. You know how they’re going to do it? They’re going to use drugs, and that is not going to be good. You’re not going to like the result of trying to be made well by drugs.
In the first chapter, we’re going to talk about your cells need food. We started the chapter by saying what is the makeup of your body? Well, it’s at the cellular level. We need to know, and so we share with you that your cells are the key to a healthy body. If you can give your cells the proper nutrition, then you’re going to have a healthy body, because cells make up organs, and organs are what process food. Your stomach, your liver, your colon all has to be healthy cells make up that. If you don’t put gas in a car, you know it’s not going to go very far. If you don’t put the right food in your body, your cells will not get the proper nutrition.
Then we go into the next chapter. What is PH, and why is this so important? PH is the potentiative hydrogen, and the key to it is you must have body fluids at a certain PH. If they’re not at a certain PH, if you’re too acidic, you’re going to be sick. I don’t want to get into that right now. It takes too long. There’s acid, and there’s alkaline. Green foods are alkaline. Sodas, sugary foods, donuts, coffee, all alkaline. You wonder why people get sick? Why people are overweight? It’s because they’re not eating the proper foods.
Chapter four we go into food that can damage your health. There’s food that if you buy in the grocery store … I very seldom buy anything in a grocery store anymore. For the most part, it’s not providing nutrition. You need to know that there’s … The crops have been grown in depleted soil, so they add chemical fertilizers, they try to make it healthy, but it’s not, so it’s synthetic fertilizers, and they can’t produce healthy crops.
Chapter five, dangerous chemicals. See if they can’t produce healthy crops. You know what’s going to happen is they are going to spoil quickly, and what’s going to happen is that food additives make your food more tasteful, more appealing, they change the texture, and make food more appetizing, food additives also extend the shelf life of the food, but guess what? They’ll tear your health down.
We go into the next chapter on getting more practical, and what are the problems with milk and meat. Guess what? Milk and dairy meat products come from a cow, and if that cow has been injected with bovine growth hormones, BHG, or has antibiotics because of utter infections, then what’s going to happen is you’re going to be in a situation where it is going to cause sickness and disease.
Chapter seven, here comes another one, a lot of people say it’s okay to eat chicken and fish. Bad fats and good fats. Well, we’re going to talk about if you eat farm-raised fish, that’s not going to work. If you eat fish that has been farm-raised, it’s going to have a lot of antibiotics in it. If you eat chicken that have not been properly taken care of, then what’s going to happen is that you will end up with a problem.
Next chapter is caffeine and high fructose corn syrup. I’m sorry, coffee is dangerous to your health. High fructose corn syrup is also found in many sodas and drinks, and that’s dangerous to your health.
Dangers of soft drinks and energy drinks is the next chapter, and you’re going to discover that soft drinks just sap your body. That’s why people have brittle bones. The energy drinks, too much coffee, will burn out your adrenals.
We go on to the next chapter, and that’s problems with cooked food. Did you know that if you cook your food above 116 degrees, you kill all the enzymes? Bet you didn’t know that. I didn’t know that either until I did all the research for the book. If processed foods have preservatives, then they’re going to increase the white blood cell count, which this causes inflammation. We want to do what? We want to eat organic food, but we don’t want to eat GMO food. GMO food is genetically modified food. If you’re going to the store, and you’re seeing a big sale on corn, you’re probably eating genetically modified food. Corn is in everything. Chips, this, that. Try to buy organic stuff, organic food, because GMO will really cause a problem.
Guess what? Your microwave is dangerous. Bet you didn’t know that. Non-stick pans. If you’ve got Teflon pans, you’ve got problems, especially if you cut them and release that Teflon, the gas that comes with it. Did you know that Russia outlawed, about 20 years ago, 25 years ago, outlawed microwaves? Why? Because they’re dangerous. They rearrange the molecules, and your body thinks it’s a foreign invader.
What you can do to help your body is, in chapter 13 we talk about juicing. Taking enzymes with your food, because you cooked it, so you need enzymes to digest. Then you need minerals, and you need what we call the king of herbs, which is [inaudible 00:09:28]. It comes from China, and it’s a longevity herb, and it’s very powerful.
You can also get three important food supplements. In chapter 14 we talk about three important food supplements, and that is barley, chlorella, and spirulina. We want you to know about that.
In chapter 15, we talk about what you can do to get well and stay well. In this chapter, we’re going to present healthy alternatives to unhealthy food that you may be eating. Healthy alternatives. We need that.
In chapter 16, we’re going to review unhealthy foods and drinks. What we previously discussed, milk does not do a body good. Did you … That’s a Madison Avenue thing. Caffeine and coffee cause adrenal burn-out as I mentioned. Enormous amounts of sugar in soft drinks are dangerous. They will cause inflammation. They will cause an acidic condition. They will cause a problem.
As I come to the end of this, I want to talk about, just briefly, what has happened to healthcare in America? Healthcare in America … If you go to the hospital, there’s a very good chance you may not come out. I’m sorry to say. If you need surgery, if you cut yourself, or you got to have surgery, you’ve got to be able to recognize that if we don’t take care of our health, we’re going to have problems. Why? Because they don’t treat the cause of sickness and disease. They treat the symptom.
This is a brief overview. A ten-minute overview. If you’ve stayed with me, you’ve learned a lot about possibilities anyway. A good reason to buy our book, or give us your e-mail, because when you give us your e-mail, we will send you excerpts of the book. Then you’ll … When we re-publish it, you’ll want to get that.
