So, continuing where I left off in my last post what we do know is there are important components. Like vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and sugars, in healthy foods like fruits or vegetables. Genetically modifying them we may gain increased size, taste and appearance.
We may also gain resistance to draught, insects or fungal infections but loss of important nutrients. The question is what are we losing? If nothing, then no big deal but in life I have rarely found we acquire something for nothing. Typically, we must give up something.
Perhaps what we lose are both nutrients we are aware of but also those that are considered less or not important. Whose absence may have unforeseen affects. Affects that for example result in the loss of ability to fully absorb or metabolize the important nutrients.
The ability for the plants or animals to absorb from the soil or their feed key nutrients. Without these key nutrients that the human body requires we suffer in short term and/or long term. Perhaps other unknown affects?
As we are only beginning to understand the “second brain” the gut microbiota, perhaps and probably many of these “other substances” that are considered unimportant to our direct health are crucial to assuring the right organisms thrive in our guts. Producing nutrients that we have yet to appreciate maybe key to our health.
I am not sure this has even really been studied and if so, how is it possible to separate all the substances that are important. Like I say about medicine it is more art then science. Yes, medicine needs a scientific underpinning but if too focused on the science we lose the true essence of what works and doesn’t.
Have you ever met someone who can quote every study but can’t do their job. They in my experience are compensating for their lack of artist ability by memorizing all the science. Not the person I want treating me.
The point being how do we separate what is important and what isn’t when studying these “other” components our foods contain that may be considered unimportant to our health but have affects we didn’t anticipate.
No, I don’t want to be a fear monger but then again, I don’t want to continue down this path of deteriorating health we currently have been on. A path that our “experts” appear to be either unaware of or intentionally ignoring the truth.
This is of course as they say a slippery slope as all too often those who want to fool us when we question them argue we just don’t understand the art when in fact it’s not we don’t understand the art but they don’t realize there is nothing artistic or scientific behind their arguments.
I have a great question next time you visit your doctor. Ask them what high cholesterol really is caused by. They will say it is a marker that your body arterial system is ill. So what do they want to do is lower it. Well cholesterol is elevated because chronic inflammation -leaky gut- is essentially leaking sewage into your blood stream.
That is inflaming the endothelium-lining- of your arteries. Cholesterol patches that damage. If however this inflammation continues too for long the body, remember your doctor has done nothing to treat the real cause, the immune system starts covering the chronically damaged area in calcium.
Thus arteriosclerosis. So, the bottom line treat the cause and the last thing you want to do is lower your cholesterol! I am not advocating you stop any medication. What I am advocating is you take control of your health as never too late.
Thus, the challenge I find in trying to explain something like improving our health where so often there is either not enough study or really no way to accurately study it as so many variables. That is where “common sense” comes in. Which isn’t common. That is why at some point you must trust others?
However, if these supposed experts are ignorant or corrupt how do you know? As often the corrupt ones try to make it look like everyone else is corrupt. Who do you trust? That I can’t answer. All I can say is to check the facts you can, trust and verify and try to keep those you use for information accountable.
That is why I want to see people’s health restored as more eyes to help assure accuracy. Simply by being better rested, mentally healthier and physically healthier you will have more energy and a better you. Thus, better able to understand what is going on and educating yourself.
If you want to improve your and your family’s life you will either must invest the effort to find the truth. Perhaps again that is finding someone you can trust. That could be the family expert on the subject.
Doing nothing will keep you in this downward spiraling deterioration in your and your families health. We work together we can reverse this. More on that later. That said, I don’t think there is some grand collusion of some quasi secretive group.
A secret group or government that is behind this. I don’t anyone has the power or that clever to pull this off. Of course, I could be wrong! Though clearly some groups appear to not have your best health as their priority.
That is not the purpose of my efforts. I will let someone else investigate that as I have enough on my plate. What I do know is it is occurring, and I want to do something to help those who are suffering from it.
