Even though April is designated as autism month (for those families autism month is every month), and unless you have a child or relative inflicted with this health problem you may not be aware of current information about autism and its contributing factors. The autism spectrum disorder includes ADD, ADHD and ASD. Genetics alone does not explain the increasing rate (1 in 110). Studies show that vaccines may significantly increase risks especially in a subgroup of infants who are ill when vaccinated, those who come from families with autoimmune diseases, those born premature or who are given a large number of vaccines at one time.
We know the truth about the importance of eating healthy and how diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure or even the course of cancer can be changed and improved with a diet of organic fruits and vegetables, meats, poultry and eggs. Do people really know what is in their food and how it might affect their health or their child’s health? Would they avoid eating or drinking these products? I am not so sure.
Changing our belief systems about nutrition involves deprogramming ourselves and starts with reading labels on the foods you buy. Carboxymethylcellulose, or any other ingredient listed that can’t be pronounced, is an indication that it’s NOT a food. Broccoli, apples, carrots, parsley, and barley are names we recognize on labels. Better yet, buy fresh foods to feel more confident that you are eating healthier.
Delicate brains, like that of an infant, toddler or an adult with a neurological disease are damaged more with a diet of chemicals. Look closely when buying a great drink that says natural fruit juice on the label. You might find that in fact “natural” means that there are chemicals in this drink that contribute to digestive problems, cause cancer or highly toxic for anyone who has a neurological disease.
Research shows a direct effect with increased seizure activity ingesting brand name flavored drinks laced with chemicals like sucralose, aspartame, splenda, etc. Commercials want you to believe that your body CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE between cane sugar and corn syrup. Not only does the body know the difference but also reacts differently.
Corn syrup is genetically grown (seeds are injected with either “Round Up” or bacteria and are called genetically modified foods (GMO). Fields are sprayed with pesticides (known to cause cancer) and the processing of corn (including soy, cotton and now beets) is done with mercury (a heavy metal that also harms the brain).
Our bodies need and want the real stuff, not the fake stuff that is loaded with sugars and chemicals that make you want to eat more. Rather than make a healthy meal we sacrifice nutrition for a chemically laced product that damages our health. We have been brainwashed to avoid the real foods: vegetables, fresh fruits, or healthy grains like buck wheat, steel cut oats, kamut, quinoa, barley. Meat and poultry raised commercially, injected with vaccines and hormones hurts us because of what these animals are fed or treated with. No wonder children and adults are more obese and have more health problems today than 30 years ago?
There are movies, books, magazines and websites (not television) available to you that give truthful nutrition information. The basic information about what our bodies need hasn’t changed since information written in the early 1900’s. We need to increase our knowledge and our belief systems about whom and where we get our information for real foods.
The only healthy area of a grocery store today is on the outside aisles, where you’ll find fruits, vegetables, meats and poultry and eggs. Your challenge is finding products that are without pesticides, hormones and toxins injected or sprayed on these foods. Stay away from the shelves that contain the processed non-foods made with chemicals. They may be cheaper to purchase but end up costing us more in medical care and increased pharmaceutical use thus contributing to the destruction of our health.
