We pay a high price, in this country for poor health. It is from the choices we make.
The American diet of candy, gum, cakes, cookies, white breads, sodas, fruit drinks, and other processed foods offers no enzymes or proteins, no minerals and no fiber, only empty calories. This cost us more than $54 billion a year. However the cost in our health is much greater, many times resulting in the loss of happiness and joy.
Refined carbohydrates causes the body to work improperly, in counter productive ways.
It begins to borrow vital nutrients from healthy cells throughout the body in order to metabolize an incomplete food. Calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium are taken from various parts of the body to make use of the refined sugar we take in. Many times, so much calcium is used to neutralize the effects of sugar that the bones begin to break-down due to the loss of calcium.
Refined foods, including sugar is devoid of all nutrients, consequently it causes the body to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes. As we continue to over eat sugar, an acid condition results, creating the need for even more minerals to be pulled from their worksites in the body, to be used to correct the imbalance. As the body continues to rearrange the chemical balance into imbalance, for the metabolism of sugar, it is no longer able to properly handle the poisonous residues, and the removal of it. Then we see the involvement of the heart, blood vessels, brain, kidney and liver, trouble all around.
Then these toxins accumulate through the brain and nervous system, which speeds up cellular death. The bloodstream becomes overloaded with toxic waste and the immune system is impacted.
Sugar makes the blood very thick and sticky, inhibiting the blood flow into the small capillaries that supply gums, teeth, nerves and other tissues with vital nutrients. Thus, we wind up diseased with the inability to heal.
