JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT AND CONSIDER
When was the last time you ate a meal that included one or more of the following: GLYPHOSATE, GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS, BUTYLATED HYDROXYANISOLE, BUTYLATED HYDROXYTOLUENE, BLUE/GREEN/RED OR YELLOW DYE, SODIUM BENZOATE, SODIUM NITRATES/NITRITES, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP OR TRANS FATS?
Most likely TODAY, YESTERDAY, the DAY BEFORE THAT and the DAY BEFORE THAT!
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOUR LIFE?
These are the “THINGS” in most of the foods we eat that add flavor, color and texture and preserve them from spoiling. They also happen to be the residues of pesticides and chemical compounds determined to CAUSE CANCER and other DISEASES.
IF PEOPLE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THESE DANGERS, WHY DO THEY CONTINUE TO REGULARLY EAT THESE FOODS?
The vast majority of people believe:
these foods and substances are NOT DANGEROUS. The belief is, “if they were dangerous, they would not be sold to the public.”
they do not cause harm because harmful ingredients would produce symptoms (ex. food poisoning)
these cheap dangerous chemicals in processed foods do not interfere with taste or hunger satisfaction.
the convenience, pricing and availability outweigh the risks or dangers.
Until the consumer is CONFRONTED with JUSTIFIABLE REASONS they PERSONALLY RELATE TO, attitudes about FOOD CHOICES are unlikely to change.
LET’S CREATE A JUSTIFIABLE REASON FOR YOU!
If I were to ask you how dangerous X-RAYS are, what would your answer be? They expose the body to radiation capable of mutating cells that result in CANCER. What about CAT scans? These also expose your body to radiation. What about mammograms? This is another source of radiation exposure. What about dental x-rays? Yet, another source. I’ll bet most people do not consider the dangers of cumulative radiation exposure and its association with CANCER.
X-rays don’t cause physical PAIN
X-rays don’t produce FEAR in our minds
If this procedure was really so safe, why are technicians required to stand behind lead lined walls OUTSIDE THE RADIATION FIELD? Why do these technicians wear badges that measure the levels of radiation they’re exposed to? It’s because radiation is DANGEROUS.
Just because you can’t FEEL the danger doesn’t mean the danger is any LESS REAL.
This concept brings us back to our processed foods and the chemicals, residual pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, heavy metals and other volatile contaminants in these foods.
Just because you can’t FEEL/TASTE the danger doesn’t mean the danger is any LESS REAL.
We expose ourselves to dangerous chemicals and residues 7 DAYS/WEEK. For the average consumer, some combination of DANGEROUS ingredients or types of food are found in EVERY MEAL. Many of these substances have been classified by the Centers of Disease Control as CARCINOGENIC (defined as CANCER causing.) The average person consumes these substances WITHOUT FEAR because they “FEEL” NO PAIN (just like x-rays.) The big difference is x-rays are RARELY used by the consumer, yet still REQUIRE additional protection for the patient and x-ray technician prior to exposure because of the “HIDDEN DANGERS.”
These same “hidden dangers” are found in the foods we eat EVERY DAY.
What are the chances an x-ray used occasionally requiring EXTRA SAFETY MEASURES is likely to cause life threatening cancer?
What are the chances our chemically laden food supply eaten DAILY with INADEQUATE SAFEGUARDS OR FEAR OF DANGER is likely to cause life threatening cancer? Well, if:
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer (according to government statistics,)
what do you think?
Can you see the MAJOR RELEVANCE our FOOD SOURCE plays in the CONTRIBUTION OF CANCER and OTHER DISEASES? Just because SYMPTOMS of disease may require some time to develop, doesn’t make processed food sources and the chemicals they contain any less dangerous.
DOES THIS X-RAY AND FOOD COMPARISON MAKE THE DANGERS MORE CLEAR, MORE REAL AND MORE PERSONALLY RELATABLE?
