What did our food eat?
The problem of nutrient deficiency arises at the beginning of the food chain. Plants grow on soils that are poor in minerals. Mass production of food products leads to depletion of the land, and fertilizers do not justify the expectations placed on them. Due to the lack of minerals that are abundant in healthy soils, vegetables and fruits that are vital, lack the necessary supply of nutrients (soil degradation and, as a result, deterioration of the quality of crops - this is another problem of a planetary scale, which is only now beginning to attract attention). Over the past six decades, the vitamin A content in tomatoes has decreased by 43%, and vitamin C in potatoes - by 57%. Unless you buy vegetables and fruits on the farm market, they are likely to have been collected long before maturation (which deprives them of important nutrients your cells need to carry out chemical reactions) and are most likely grown on soils that are poor in nutrients substances.
Try to follow the habits of the peoples of the "blue zones" listed on page 93, then you will live long and keep your health for many years
As you will learn from the following chapters, the detoxification process is much less effective in the absence of nutrients required for its chemical reactions.
The most popular fertilizer, nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (AFK), provides only 3 of the 50-odd minerals required for healthy plants. Consequently, in plants with soils in which only AFK is used, a weak immune system is formed. Under the influence of insects or chemicals such as insecticides, they develop an inflammatory reaction that increases the amount of omega-6 fatty acids that contribute to the development of inflammatory processes and reduces the content of omega-3 fatty acids, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties. When animals are fed with unnatural food, they are prone to disease. In fish grown artificially, less fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids).
Cows that feed on grain develop gastritis, inflammation, infectious diseases, and as a result they have to give antibiotics. Eating such plants, fish and beef, we absorb inflammation, which, among other things, makes us more vulnerable to atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries (blockage of the arteries leading to heart attacks), cancer and other chronic diseases.

What did our food eat?
- About what our head thinks
In the head of each person, and the Wizard in particular, there is a certain value system. Within the framework of this system we trust one information, and we check the other, question it or throw it away with a cry: "Bullshit!" Thanks to this hierarchy, we identify a certain area from which we receive information as an area of absolute trust. For most of us, such an area
- How does our fairy tale work?
For example, the continuation of the tale, which wrote Medunitsa: Okay, said Serenade Marzipanovna. From lemon it is always possible to make lemonade! Not in the sense that she decided to start making soft drinks and make a worthy competition for Pinocchio, which has been thriving in this field for decades. And in the sense that she did not intend to give up. I took my Serenade
- How to spend four days: our program
The program of our seminar is based on four simple steps, carried out in the process of visual thinking. Today we will start by learning to look better (do not confuse with "better look" - we will not discuss the tastes in clothes). Saying "better look," I mean understanding the laws by which we visually collect raw information about the world around us. As a conscious attitude towards
- NECESSARY FOOD
The strangest thing, it seems to me, is complete oblivion of the most fundamental concept for all living things, which is called necessary food. My most significant discovery in America, equal in importance to the discovery of Christopher Columbus, is that there the idea of the necessary food has completely disappeared. No professor or modern physician seems to be aware of her enormous
- Animal food
The inability of certain substances for consumption manifests itself in anaphylactic (allergic immediate effects) symptoms that often appear after the use of these substances. Food anaphylactic manifestations are limited only when consuming only substances of animal origin. And the more animal substances in their composition approach the human body, the
- Food of the gods or mixture of styles
First, I give an example, and then we will already analyze its structure. Well-known expression of the food of the gods - so they say, when they want to praise the taste of a dish. The expression is somewhat arrogant, belongs, so to speak, to the "high style". The word "grub" is a vernacular, they are hardly used in an intelligent society. Therefore, the combination of the words of the grub of the gods in Ilf's Golden Calf
- Food, as a universal remedy for anguish and anxiety
It is not excluded that your appetite is completely independent of whether you are calm or something is alarmed. Excellent, then this chapter may be of interest to you solely in terms of broadening your horizons. But if you have such a connection between mood and appetite, then, we hope, this text will be useful to you. The fact that food can soothe, reduce anxiety, improve mood, create a feeling
- Food is the basis of heredity
When studying the mechanism of heredity, it becomes clear that the germplasm does not exist in some waterproof compartment, which is not influenced by external factors. Heredity is not the cause of genetic factors. It is simply a way of transferring existing positive or negative attributes that it does not itself produce. The causes of these signs lie outside
- DAY FIFTEENTH - APPETITE FOOD FOR MEDITATION
Once again I repeat: beautiful beauties, this is not a diet! This is a psychological training, as a result of which you part with addiction! The basic law of all diets: eat less, but move more! And for sure, each of you, or rather, from us has already visited a heap of diets! I'm here, for example, on diets I can write an encyclopedia without ceremony! I'm not against diets, I'm with two hands "for", one "but": any diet
- Food for complementary foods and control of iron deficiency
Biological availability of iron is more important than the total amount of iron in the diet, and this should be taken into account when developing recommendations on how to feed young children. Examples of iron content and bioavailability in infant food are shown in Table 33. In the following section, foodstuffs Table 33. The content and bioavailability of iron in
