Health Benefits of Food

Have you noticed that most health articles are concerned with stopping a disease that the person has – or attempting to prevent a disease – which is actually stopping disease before it happens. And it all sounds scary.

What about we take our attention away from just fighting disease and start working towards health to create a healthy body.

Do you want to stop gum disease and decay, or just have healthy teeth?

Do you want to stop an infection after one starts, or just have a healthy immune system that prevents infections from happening?

The list of things that a healthy body creates goes on and on. 

The body runs on protein, carbohydrates and fats and 40 other nutrients that cannot be made in the body. These are 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, 10 amino acids & the essential fatty acids. The nutrients you need that cannot be made in the body all come from food.

What do you use to build a healthy body? Food. Sometimes if you can’t get enough of the nutrients you need from food, you might have to supplement. But you would do that with whole food supplements, not the artificial type that is made in a laboratory.

There are diets for overall health as well as diets for specific health issues. See below.  But addressing an issue and then continuing to create health eliminates the need for special diets in the future. 

You should eat for your health, not your taste buds.

Improve your diet & eat wisely – this is the best and least expensive form of “health insurance”. Building health is a lot more fun than trying to stop disease.

Another new study… Low Carb Diets Will Shorten Your Life?

I guess the keto diet is becoming too popular and people are getting healthier.   Now their is a study done – contradicting earlier studies – that you need to eat more carbs for health??

New Scientific Study… what does it mean?  

Every other day it seems, there is a new study that is published which states that something is good for you or bad for you. It could be a study about food, or supplements, or how easy it is for you to get some dreaded disease. And there are many times that the study contradicts an earlier one.  And the next study contradicts that one. Do we believe them?

You need to know that studies are paid for by tax dollars and by companies that have a vested interest in the study. They are looking to prove that you should take a certain drug, or prescription vitamin, or that you should be wary of a specific way of living.

Vested interest means that they may be out to prove their hypothesis so they can sell you a drug or prevent you from using the competitor’s product.

Then there is the overwhelming problem, that one study doesn’t prove a thing. There are so many variables, that you can’t possible expect that a 100-300 person study (people who have been picked for the study) to show something conclusively.

So next time you decide you should not take something due to the “latest” study. Read up what it really is. Find out the science behind the nutritionally sound concept of nutrition or what your body needs to function.

Or investigate the actual studies and what other studies have been done – you can find them on PubMed.com

Be Careful Out There by Doug Kaufman (KnowtheCause.com)

I don’t usually go to doctors. About 13 years ago, I revised my life insurance plan and a medical person came to my office and asked many questions, then drew my blood and got a urine sample. A few weeks later I learned that my request was denied because my cholesterol was far too high at 226. I argued my case and the large insurance carrier chose a local physician for me to see who performed a cardiac stress test

I passed the test with flying colors. I’m still alive, even with excess cholesterol swimming through my bloodstream. Imagine that! My only exposure to physical examinations prior to that was in 1972, as an exit physical exam from the U.S. Navy. I do not ever get screened for cancer, because I believe that detection tests are often.inaccurate and because of that, I believe that cancer is being overdiagnosed.

So often, I believe that going to a doctor for a minor health problem is like going to a mechanic when the red “oil” light appears on your dashboard. Doctors and mechanics are paid to find problems and they are both very good at that. Perhaps a changed diet and 3 quarts of engine oil will fix most minor problems.

Processed Food and Your Health

I have a quiz on my site to check on certain things that might stop someone from restoring health to their nerves.   One question is do they eat processed foods.

Actually, so many people say they don’t eat processed foods, that I begin to wonder if they know what that means.   However, what I want to communicate is that it is so important to read labels when buying food.  No, eggs, vegetables and meat are probably okay – well unless they come packages and then I would still check the labels.

Here is an article on checking labels…
