Carbohydrates: Treat Yourself Right To Plants

Food Fight #36

Over 90% of human body mass is carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Instead of “you are what you eat,” the truth is “you should eat what you are.” Eat carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates are carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Plants contain natural carbohydrates. By eating a variety of plants, you will also consume fat, protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, iron and most of those other things you need.

If your body is over 90% carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, shouldn't you be eating a lot of the same things? Food from plants matches your body's design in numerous ways to keep it functioning for high achievement.

If you want health, nutrition, energy, healthcare, medicine, self-improvement, preventive medicine, beautiful skin and many more good things, treat yourself right to plants.

Note: Although animal fat is also carbon, hydrogen and oxygen; plants are intended to be your main food source. Plants contain the overwhelming majority, almost all, of the nutrients you need.

Sweet Corn, Neonicotinoids, Allergies, Informed Consent, Occupy Movement & Patriotism

Food Fight #35

April 2011, I said eat fresh corn.

Turns out, eating corn is dangerous, at least in America. Corn seed is coated with a neonicotinoid - a pesticide that affects the nervous system of insects and other animals, including humans. The pesticide is effective because it is absorbed into every part of the plant (root, stem, leaf, flower, nectar, pollen and fruit). It is absorbed and is on the inside and can't be washed away.

There is enough of this pesticide on one seed of planted corn to kill tens of thousands of bees. The potential effect on humans is not hard to see.

Americans are told neonicotinoids kill insects by paralyzing nerves but have "lower toxicity" for other animals. (This sounds like, the toxic effect on humans won't be paralysis but something lower like possibly a malfunction within some cells).

Haven't we been experiencing increasing incidences of Alzheimers, ALS, Epilepsy, Incontinence, frequent headaches, Migraines, Parkinson's, Huntington's, CRPS, Fibromyalgia, Phobias, Sleep Disorders, Tourette, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disabilities, ADHD, cancers, kidney failures, dementia, Celiac Disease, and on and on? The accumulated effects of ingesting toxins for years has reached critical mass within the population and will continue to “confound” scientists while being given different names/excuses.

Toxins that interfere with the nervous system also affect cognition and everyday thinking by limiting the ability of the brain to make associations and connections which is the basic framework of how the brain works. This means any of us who have ingested these toxins are more than likely suffering from reduced brain vitality and functionality. This reduces our ability to put two and two and two together and impairs our ability to figure things out which makes it much easier for 99% of us to have our thinking occupied following flawed ideologies such as what is safe to eat or the requirements for happiness.

How could corn on the cob, canned corn, frozen corn, corn meal, tortillas, corn chips, corn oil, corn cereal, corn fed meat, corn dogs and other corn products possibly be responsible for all of this?

It's not. Corn is only one of the poison items in our food supply. Most annual crop seeds are coated with pesticides before planting. For decades seeds have been planted covered in poison such as soy, wheat, oats, rye, barley, millet, cotton, peanuts, sorghum, legumes, sunflowers, potatoes, sugar-beets, rapeseed, flax and at least 130 other crops (most vegetables). We are led to accept blame being placed on allergies and gluten and other sidestepping explanations. Here's the truth. An allergy is a reaction to a toxin. A toxin is something that works against a living organism. We are supposed to be allergic to bee stings and snake bites not wheat and peanuts, etc. Food is not supposed to work against us. There's either something wrong with us or something wrong with the food. Which happened first? No more hiding toxic, adverse reactions behind allergies.

Insecti-cides, pesti-cides, fungi-cides and herbi-cides. are biological weapons designed to perform homi-cide on living things. We keep creating and adding more toxins to the environment. These weapons can't decide among weed cells, pest cells, ant cells, bee cells, worm cells, ladybug cells, caterpillar cells, butterfly cells, bird cells, or unborn baby human cells or human cells period.

Big businesses, home owners, gardeners, nurseries, lawn caretakers and landscapers are the major culprits introducing toxins, therefore each must solve the part of the problem they create or support.

For the most part, each individual has entrusted fellow Americans within the Federal government, state governments, scientists, researchers and businesses (growers, processors, transporters and retailers) to tell us what is safe, but who will never coat the seeds of business with pure patriotism and who have yet to admit food Made in America makes Americans sick.

Continue to eat fresh corn and other food from plants and meats, just grow it yourself or purchase from someone who doesn't put poison on food without letting you know. Informed consent is not supposed to start two thirds of the way along the healthcare continuum.

Bees & Colony Collapse Disorder: CCD Revisited

Food Fight #34

It has been a year since posting, ”Bees Dying: Malnutrition & Colony Collapse Disorder.” It's not getting any better. If bees die, we die.

View the video from NBC Nightly News titled, ”Bee Mystery.”

Read the following article and its comments, ”Pesticide Profits or Bees: Bayer Responds.”

We must immediately enact federal laws that:

1. Ban the use of all toxins (insecticides and herbicides) everywhere. Toxins, along with loss of habitat, are the major causes of most environmental problems. By extension, we must realize these toxins are also harming other bees, other pollinators, insects, animals, plants and humans. Toxins are bad for every facet of life. The only safe toxin is one that doesn't exist.
2. Require all municipalities and counties maintain a certain number of acres of native flowering plants and then encourage practices to encourage non-domesticated honey bees and other pollinators to flourish, especially providing natural habitat so bees can create their own hives. The medians between highways and expressways could be planted with low-growing flowering plants. This will also save on grass cutting related expenses. Some states already have Adopt-A-Highway programs. Homes with parkways could be used in the same manner. This law will help provide a backup and source of replenishment of stronger bee stock, should all the domesticated bees continue to remain weak and continue to die.
3. Establish tax credits for practices and land use that restores more natural environments. Also lower the assessed value on real property for the same reasons.

Furthermore, we may need to give up a lot of bee products for a while to make sure human over-harvesting of bees natural food/medicine is not part of the problem.

Nectar and pollen are bee food/medicine. It is likely not all nectar and pollen contain the same nutrients just as not all fruits and vegetables contain the same nutrients for us. Bees need nectar and pollen from a variety of plants in order to maintain optimal health. We need to return to being sustainable from the ground up, the atmosphere down and from the future to the past. If we don't act with urgency to install solutions to stop bee colonies from collapsing, the next thing will be chaos, because the entire ecosystem depends on plants and many of those plants depend on bees to pollinate them so they can produce seeds and/or fruit. No amount of money or technology will be able to save us if we continue to allow the ecosystem to suffer from our ego system. There is no nation greater than nature. There is nothing greater than natural law except that which creates natural law.

By The Way: Jobs are a minor problem compared to Colony Collapse Disorder. Secondly, $4 to $5 gas will be considered cheap, compared to the cost of food if crop yields drop off sharply and supply is limited.
