I watched this documentary today that literally left my mind spinning. Its called What the Health and conveniently on Netflix. I considered myself on a healthier diet because I typically eat a variety of vegerables meats and dairy. Man, let me tell you that I was honestly shocked by what companies do to hide what they are giving the meat we eat daily. I am honestly condisering giving up processed meat and dairy. Organic dairy product are just as bad so dont waste your money. I am a heavy milk drinker, like 3 glasses a day at the least. Did you know that there is an allowed pus percentage allowed in milk?! The cows tit is so swollen and engorged that there is puss coming out of it. Are you kidding me??
Fish is hazardous because people like to screw up the environment and dump toxins in the water. That one I saw coming and fisherys have to constantly give their fish antibiotic because the tanks are so packed with diseased fish.
Now that I think of it, I remember an older guy at the farmers market from a long time ago. He shook his head and mumbled government meat. I thought nothing of it at the time but it makes so much sense to me. The FDA and USDA are the governmental agencies that regulate what we get on the market. The meat you buy at the store, regardless of whether or not is free range or grass fed, is still given a crap ton of antibiotics. Its literally Government issued meat. And I never got the connection.
The WTO labeled processed meat as a carcinogen in the same category as cigarettes. All the health food article say to switch to chicken because its better. Wrong! Chicken meat is pumped full of a salt water solution.
So pretty much any processed meat or byproducts are the leading causes of diabetes, acute heart disease, breast cancer, osteoporosis, breast cancer and a load of other stuff I cant remember this second.
Oh and get this. Eating alot of sugar doesn’t cause diabetes. Yep that’s right. Its saturated fats and cholesterol that make it so that sugar can’t be absorbed properly so it stays in your blood stream. Granted this accounts for years of the same diet. I’m not dismissing hereditary diabetes at all, just forms of it that you obtain from a poor diet.
What makes all of this worse for me is know all of this information, and I still have to question whether or not I want to make some serious lifestyle changes. Because that’s what it would be for me. I would literally have to change everything. The kicker is, that I have a serious allergy to coconut. And that is in most vegan foods not to mention 75% of the normal products that I can’t use because its a preservative. Its not like I want anything fancy. I just want soap and toothpaste that won’t kill me.
