Foods That Weaken the Immune System
The following foods act like the Trojan horse that was used to defeat Troy, they are very attractive looking and tasting but once inside you they are your enemy and they will attack you from the inside out. Our bodies are very old systems that have known only organic and unrefined foods. Refined foods have only been on the market for the last 100 years. They have no food value, they carry toxins, and they weaken your immune and digestion systems. Constipation and chronic diseases like arthritis, heart disease, cancer, etc. are your body's reaction to these refined foods.
DAIRY PRODUCTS (milk, cheese, butter, yogurt etc.)
How can something, as American as apple pie, be bad for you? Read on for just a few reasons. We are the only living mammal on the planet that continues to ingest milk after the weaning period. For the human being the weaning period is approximately 2 years.
What is wrong with milk? Cows add DNA and RNA plus blood products to their milk so that their milk will form a cow not a human being. Then, if you add the growth hormones, antibiotics and the many other chemicals farmers use to increase the cows milk production, you end up with a product that is totally foreign to your immune system. This causes your immune system to be diverted from its primary purpose, which is to protect you from foreign bacteria and viruses.
REFINED WHITE FLOUR
Refined white flour has so little food value that bread made from it cannot sustain life for laboratory animals such as mice, rats, and guinea pigs. When you buy bread, or flour for baking, in the market look for the words whole wheat. If it says anything else it is refined and valueless. Don't be fooled by wheat breads if the ingredient enriched flour is on the label they are refined flower colored with molasses or food coloring.
POLISHED REFINED RICE
Just like refined flour the food value in rice was lost when it was refined and cannot sustain life. Buying polished rice is like going to the store to buy apples and coming home with apple cores. When buying rice, look for the words whole grain rice. If your market does not carry it, ask them to get it for you. Don't be fooled by brown rice, it is white polished rice colored with molasses or food color. You are looking for 100% whole grain brown rice.
REFINED WHITE SUGAR
Refined white sugar can lead to arthritis, bursitis, neuritis, and rheumatism along with other chronic diseases, especially those of the digestive tract. Sugar weakens the entire immune system setting the stage for chronic diseases. Sugar weakens the hydrochloric acid in our stomach, which leads to poor digestion and assimilation of calcium, protein and vitamins to name a few. The loss of these nutrients opens the door to diseases like arthritis and speeds the aging process.
This means bacon, ham, sausage, frankfurters, bologna, and corned beef and so on. Chemicals used to preservative meat destroy the food value and can become logged in the cells of the body. These meats also carry nitrates that are converted to nitrites in the body. Nitrites oxidize hemoglobin causing it to lose its capacity to carry oxygen to body tissues. This reduced ability to move oxygen can not only compromise the immune system but also aggravate problems like heart disease, arthritis, listlessness, dizziness, and headaches. The medical term for this condition is methemoglobinemia.
GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS
There is a new disease that is a real Frankenstein Monster. It is called Morgellons disease and it is believed to come from genetically modified foods (GMF). It begins with itching and scratching and you feel like bugs are crawling around under your skin. Sores show up from the scratching and tiny fibers begin to come out of your skin that move around. The fibers are red or blue sometimes white or black. The fibers are of unknown origin; they do contain chemicals that are from these GMF foods. You can go online and you will find websites that will have the names of companies that have these foods in their products, Campbell Soup Company is one of them. The people with this disease have psychological problems such as memory loss, sometimes they commit suicide. More than 10,000 reports of this mysterious disease from around the world have been reported on the Morgellon Foundation's website at http://www.morgellons.org/. The companies that created this monster are Pharmacia & Upjohn with Monsanto Company and its G.D. Searle unit.
