BEWARE: What You Are Gulping Down May Be Killing You Slooowly...

Apr 4, 2008
With nutritional supplements and health awareness at an all-time high, why have health problems skyrocketed over the last 100 years? While our ancestors lived difficult lives, they were not burdened with many of the complicated health challenges we face today. So what has changed in our modern world? What is the secret to enjoy the health and vitality experienced by our forefathers?

Nowadays many people live in a fast paced world that leaves them reaching for a fast meal from convenience stores and fast food restaurants. Unhappily, these types of food include chemicals and food colors that are harmful to health.

To cut out the chemicals and preservatives for better health, means going back to food in their natural state. Skip the pre-packaged and pre-prepared food as much as possible.

These fast foods are not whole food providing the vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by your body. Sometimes what is eaten is not even real foods and provides little nutrition to build health.

You need to take a look at what you eat and whether you are getting your health and nutrition needs met. One health and nutrition secret is to use the best foods, grown organically, if possible.

Having a balanced diet is the best way to ensure that you have good health and good nutrition. Nutrition experts suggest that the daily diet includes so many servings from the five food groups of breads and cereals, vegetables, fruits, milk, meat/protein such as poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts. Fats would be included, but used sparingly.

People who lived 50 to 100 years ago generally ate nutritional foods like whole grain foods, vegetables and fruits grown from the garden. They generally ate smaller amounts of meat or chose meals with beans, peas and other legumes.

Are you one of those who think that if you do not eat well, you can just pop a vitamin pill and make up for it? Here is another health and nutrition secret: "your body absorbs vitamins and minerals found in foods more easily than those found in vitamin pills".

Have vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables very predominant in your diet for a natural source of the vitamins and minerals that you need for good health. Without this good source of nutrition, it is very hard to have good health. Choose real food over vitamins, then fill in if you think you are lacking with a super food powder.

Put this health and nutrition secret to work in your life and you will find over time that you are taking your health to a new level, rather than sacrificing your health because of poor nutrition.
