The unbalanced body is at risk and doing only partial repair is not an option. The greatest load of poisons that people absorb comes from food but the next load comes from the environment. The air we breathe, the smells we tolerate, and the places we choose to live are all a part of the imbalance of organs and the system in general. These are things to consider when making life-style choices.
We are trapped in modern trends as cities provide work and entertainment. They are full of joyful experiences, interest, and people. They are related to the rise of diseases and addictions that are killing a large number. So what is the alternative?
Unfortunately, there seems to be no solution to this one problem. Few are keen to live in the country where they feel isolated and disconnected. But that is where the healthy live. Have you noticed the rosy cheeks, good deportment, and spring in their steps of those who not city-bound? Their laughter and joy is more infectious than that from a comedy on the stage. Their appreciation of the earth is deeper and they are more reliant on good practices.
The cities are full of temptation. They hold masses of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs. All of these are pouring out the toxins for patrons to absorb. Traffic is another source as carbon pollution is impossible to eradicate from streets and even buildings. Although the air within is mainly air-conditioning that is based on recycling the stuff inside.
Stress is also related to life in a city. Rushing always to catch public transport, to get to shops on time, to please the boss, and ultimately finding life in general tiring and barely worth living. Some are waking up to the fact that those caught in that life-style are slaves to industry. They live to work rather than the other way around.
Since the Industrial Revolution the rise in all things that are now deadly to human life has increased. Carbon is bringing about enormous changes to the weather and farmers are struggling to produce crops. Many areas in food growing regions are battling drought, fires, and floods. Increasing cyclones and damage to harvests will ultimately end them.
The city folk have no choice but to buy their produce from supermarkets where the food can be anything up to one or two years of age. Refrigeration and freezers that preserve food over this length of time destroy the enzymes and ultimately alter any good features of it. What is left are more harmful toxins.
Home grown vegetables and fruit have flavour and it is the flavonoids that are essential to balancing the bodies immune system. Food kept on shelves often goes through a chemical process designed to preserve it for longer. The flavonoids are destroyed in the process and most of it is tasteless, as so many are discovering.
Tasteless food is full of inflammatory properties. Of these arsenic is probably the worst and it is found in crops grown in areas where the arsenic has entered the water table, that is in rice paddies. This metal is found in all soils and is seen as the white glittering particles, especially on rocks. This element gets into cells where it accumulates and is extremely carcinogenic. Many popular foods today contain large amounts of this grain.
List of foods containing rice products are noodles, rice crackers, pasta, bran, breakfast cereals, male, cereal bars, and so on. Baby foods also contain rice and for younger ones the degree of it is extensive. Children are particularly prone to cancer today and that includes leukaemia, brain tumours, and others. Rice grown in Southern states of the USA are grown in arsenic contaminated soils due to pesticides use on cotton crops to control the boll weavel.
To make tasteless food more palatable sauces are used and these also contain toxins. One of the worst is monosodium glutamate (MSG) which is a salt that many are allergic to. This is a wake-up call for those who take it on a regular basis in their diet.
This article can only deal with a few of the poisons we eat and anyone interested should look further into it. City life is one place where they occur in abundance. Getting back to nature and the great organic home-grown products is my answer to the problem.
