Why do you want to eat right?

Most people are told to eat a healthy diet, etc., but what is the underlying reason..  A lot of people say to lose weight and be healthy,  others to protect themselves from “germs” or “disease”.

The “germ theory” says that we have to protect ourselves from the virus infections or bacterial infections or other “germs”.thus, the idea is that you have to take  certain vitamins, herbs or minerals that will protect you  from these “germs” and thus disease.

However, a much better viewpoint is that if the body is healthy, that “terrain” can not be invaded by “germs”,   There is no place for them to infect.    Do you know what a virus has variants?   Because they alter things so they can find a way to work themselves into an ailing body.    They are trying to survive.   Variants spread easier, but are always weaker.

I think its easier to have a healthy body which is resistant to any “germ” that might be trying to invade it.

The Side Effect of a Pandemic for Diabetics

Diabetes 

Diabetes deaths surged during the pandemic, rising 17% in 2020

Even diabetics who didn’t get this flu  suffered, often falling victim to isolation, social distancing, lack of medical care and fear

Diabetes deaths and diabetes-caused amputations and intensive care admissions have plagued diabetes patients who delayed medical care during the pandemic; ‘The diagnosis was uncontrolled diabetes, but it was caused by pandemic fear’

Among 8- to 20-year-olds, Type 2 diabetes diagnoses tripled in 2020 at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.; school closures and reduced physical activity triggered by the pandemic were likely factors in the sudden rise

Among U.S. adults who responded to the American Psychological Association’s 2021 Stress in America poll, 42% said they had gained more weight than they intended since the pandemic started  

Eliminating ultraprocessed foods is an essential part of tackling both obesity and Type 2 diabetes, in part because it lowers your intake of toxic seed oils that are driving both conditions.
