Health Food Store Dangers

Are all of your health food store purchases healthy for you?

Buyer be smart.

Do you buy your dry cereal at the health food store thinking it’s healthy for you because it’s made with “organic sugar” or sweetened with fruit juice? Whoops, think again. Any sweets whether organic or concentrated fruit juice, affect your metabolism the same as plain old table sugar. They still spike your blood sugar, causing havoc in your glands that control blood sugar, the pancreas, adrenals and liver.

If you’re sensitized (allergic or addicted) to it you may tolerate concentrated fruit juice better than table sugar (sucrose).

But “organic sugar” is still sugar (maybe minus a few trace chemicals).

And sugar (concentrated sweets) cause a multitude of problems in your body. It ages you faster than you should, causing more wrinkles. It makes it harder for your immune system to fight off infections. It can interfere with digestion. Sugar cause degeneration in your body.

But they (sweets) sell products.

So food manufacturers entice you to think your doing something healthy for your body by using “organic sugar”. That’s because they sell more food products and justify significant price increases for their products simply by printing the word “organic” on the label. But as you can see “organic” is not always a synonym for “healthy.” It is the first problem and over-processing is the second problem. Over-processed flour or grain becomes dead food that stresses your body.

Corn certainly becomes dead food when it’s processed into cornflakes.

First it’s heated ( cooked) for almost 2 1/2 hours. Then it’s pressed by rollers to form the flakes, shaken and moved along on the conveyor belt. A syrup spray, heated to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, coats it. Lastly synthetic vitamins are sprayed on it and it moves into the package.

Yes, it’s dead food, thoroughly thrashed, bashed, overcooked, devoid of all enzymes and diminished in vitamin and other nutrient content. Synthetic vitamins aren’t so great either. So avoid all those highly processed, nutritionally deficient “organic” foods like organic potato chips, corn chips, donuts, waffles, sugar-added cereals, pizza, and frozen dinners.

Shop from the same aisles in the health food store as you would in the regular grocery store. Simply choose your food from the produce and meat section and carefully find the other whole food such as whole grain products and nuts. Choose health promoting whole food to nourish your precious body. After all, where will you live when your body wears out?
