What did our food eat?


The problem of nutritional deficiencies occurs at the beginning of the food chain. Plants grow on soils poor in minerals. Mass production of food leads to depletion of the land, and fertilizers do not justify the hopes placed on them. Due to the lack of minerals that are abundantly contained in healthy soils, vegetables and fruits that are of vital importance lack the necessary supply of nutrients (soil degradation and, as a result, deterioration in the quality of agricultural crops is another problem of planetary scale, which is only now beginning to attract attention). Over the past six decades, the content of vitamin A in tomatoes has decreased by 43%, and vitamin C in potatoes - by 57%. Unless you buy vegetables and fruits at the farmers market, they were most likely harvested long before ripening (which deprives them of the essential nutrients your cells need for chemical reactions) and most likely were grown on nutrient poor soils. substances.
Try to follow the habits of the peoples of the “blue zones” indicated on page 93, then you will live a long time and preserve your health for many years.

As you will learn from later chapters, the detoxification process is much less efficient in the absence of the nutrients necessary for its chemical reactions.
The most popular fertilizer, nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (ROS), provides only 3 of the 50-odd minerals needed for healthy plants. Consequently, in plants from soils in which only ROS is used, a weak immune system is formed. Under the influence of insects or chemicals, such as insecticides, they have an inflammatory reaction that increases the content of omega-6 fatty acids in them, contributing to the development of inflammatory processes, and reduces the content of omega-3 fatty acids - a nutrient that has strong anti-inflammatory properties. When animals are fed unnatural food, they are prone to disease. Artificially grown fish contains less fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids).
Cows that feed on grain develop gastritis, inflammations occur, they are infected with infectious diseases, and as a result they have to be given antibiotics. By feeding on such plants, fish and beef, we absorb inflammation, which, among other things, makes us more vulnerable to atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries (blockage of arteries leading to heart attacks), cancer and other chronic diseases.

What did our food eat?

  1. What does our head think
    In each person’s head, including the Wizard, there is a certain value system. Within the framework of this system, we trust one information, and check the other, cast doubts on or discard it with a cry: “Bullshit!” Thanks to this hierarchy, we select some specific area from which we receive information as an area of ​​absolute trust. For most of us, such a field
  2. How does our tale work?
    Here's an example of the continuation of the fairy tale that Medunitsa wrote: Okay, Serenada Marzipanovna said. Lemon can always make lemonade! Not in the sense that she decided to engage in the production of soft drinks and make a worthy competition to Pinocchio, which in this field has been flourishing for decades. And in the sense that she was not going to give up. I took my serenade
  3. 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 with the fact that we learn to look better (do not confuse with “look better” - we will not discuss tastes in clothes). Saying “better to watch,” I mean the understanding of the laws by which we visually gather raw information about the world around us. As a conscious attitude to
  4. REQUIRED FOOD
    The strangest thing, it seems to me, is the complete oblivion of the most fundamental concept for all living things, which is called essential food. My most significant discovery in America, equal in importance to the discovery of Christopher Columbus, is that there the idea of ​​necessary food has completely disappeared. No professor or modern physician seems to be aware of her enormous
  5. Animal food
    The unsuitability of certain substances for consumption is manifested in anaphylactic (immediate allergic) symptoms that often appear after using these substances. Food anaphylactic manifestations are limited to the consumption of substances of animal origin only. And the more animal substances in their composition approach the human body, the
  6. Gods Food or Style Mix
    First give an example, and then analyze its structure. The expression of the food of the gods is well known - they say so when they want to praise the taste of any dish. This expression is somewhat lofty, belongs, so to speak, to "high style". The word grub is colloquial, they are hardly used in an intelligent society. Therefore, the combination of the words of the gods ’grub in I. Ilf’s Golden Calf
  7. Food, as a universal remedy for longing and anxiety
    It is possible that your appetite is completely independent of whether you are calm or alarmed. Well, then this chapter may be of interest to you solely in terms of expanding 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
  8. Food - 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 affected by external factors. Heredity is not the cause of genetic factors. It is simply a way of conveying existing positive or negative signs that it itself does not produce. The reasons for these symptoms lie outside
  9. FIFTEEN DAY - APPETITE FOOD FOR REFLECTIONS
    I repeat: beauties, this is not a diet! This is a psychological training, as a result of which you will part with addiction! The basic law of all diets: you need to eat less, and move more! And surely each of you, or rather, of us already visited a bunch of diets! For example, I can easily write an encyclopedia on diets! I am not against diets, I am “for” with two hands, one “but”: any diet
  10. Food for complementary foods and iron deficiency
    The bioavailability 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 its bioavailability in food of infants are shown in table 33. In the next section, food products Table 33. Iron content and bioavailability in
