Cancer is on the rise and this is puzzling for many. The answer is quite obvious to me. The majority of the population has veered off of nature’s path. People eat things they believe are healthy based on advertisements. Even sadder is that people are addicted to the processed foods that have been created for profit. Food is a majorly propagandized topic in America. Could it be because food is a billion dollar industry and food companies will do just about anything to sell their products?
Unfortunately in most recent decades there has been much manipulation and processing of foods. Food corporations have engineered processed foods in such a way that they become addicting! So it is no surprise that the obesity epidemic is upon us. Processed foods are full of chemicals, additives, colorings, preservatives, and who knows what else—all of which have harmful effects on the body including cancer causing effects and alteration of the body’s metabolism.
Processed foods are a form of poison.
Even the foods marketed to be “natural” are not so natural. When you read the labels, the ingredients are full of added sugars, unhealthy oils, and the many chemical additives I’ve mentioned above. Many chemicals and additives result in cancer either directly or indirectly if exposed to over a period of time.
If it comes in a box, a can, or a bag, best left to the wayside, why risk your health?
Luckily, we are in the know about the harmful effects of these processed foods and information is spreading like wildfire. Other good news is that you don’t have to feel deprived of those yummy snacks because many savvy healthy companies and chefs have created health conscious products and recipes to mimic those bites we crave!
I am grateful for the latest in the food marketing hype—superfoods. I am very happy about this because superfoods are actually healthy! I have participated in this trendy movement with my many superfood posts (many of which you can read here), but can I let you in on a little secret?
Superfoods are nothing more than REAL foods from the earth. Surprise!
Superfoods are the natural, whole foods that Mother Nature has provided for us. These foods are super indeed! Whole foods from the earth have anti-cancer properties NATURALLY. FOOD IS MEDICINE.
Any food grown from the earth without pesticides or genetic modification is naturally SUPER and HEALING.
Real food, aka superfoods, aka foods grown straight from the earth, contain all the nutrients, anti-oxidants, phytonutrients, minerals, vitamins, and medicine we need to maintain our youth and our health. So it is no surprise to me every time a new study emerges that this fruit extract kills cancer cells and that herb decreases tumor growth.
Food is our medicine.
Now that you are aware of this, you have the power to choose— do you wish to nourish or poison your body with? You have the power to use food as medicine or poison. Food can elevate your existence. Food can enhance your thought process, improve your focus, cleanse your body, elevate your energy levels and so much more.
I hope you choose the foods that will prevent cancer and maintain your health. You have the power to heal yourself and maintain your health. Choose wisely.
