Eat for Your Future
The nutritionally deprived, cooked and processed foods you eat today will damage your health tomorrow, as well as the health of your unborn children and grandchildren in the years to come.
This concept came from a book in the 1940’s by Francis Pottenger, published in his book Pottenger’s Cats. Some nine hundred cats were fed various types of food, raw and some cooked. There was a striking difference in their health as well as the health of the off-spring. Within six months the cats eating the cooked food had infections, dental problems, vision problems, skin problems, allergies, arthritis, miscarriages and behavioral changes-including nervousness, viciousness and violent behavior.
The cats on the raw diet remained healthy and well-behaved, generation after generation. There is much to learn from Pottenger’s work; the most significant is the impact of poor nutrition, produced by cooked food proves the need for raw, fresh foods.
Think of all the people ( or maybe yourself) that you know who suffer from allergies, gum disease, heart problems, vision problems, arthritis, anti-social behavior, miscarriages and other health problems. Could malnutrition, or perhaps even the malnutrition of their parents or grandparents be contributing to their problems? Or, even consider the baby boomer generation, the first humans to develop eating processed “TV Dinner” diets starting in the 1950’s.
How You Eat Matters
To eliminate these problems, follow a few simple guidelines, which will bring more nutrients into your cells and let wastes out of your body efficiently. First eat the right combinations of food, because certain foods digest better together than others. Next, chew your food well, to assist in the digestive process, and nutrients are absorbed better. Solid food should be chewed thoroughly enough that it becomes liquid before you swallow it. Nutrition starts in your mind and in your mouth. Eat your food with the intent to nourish your body, rather than to “fill a void” in your stomach.
When you eat cooked foods, eating something raw first is best. Cooked food appears as an alien to the human system and can invoke an immune response, just as if you are being exposed to a virus.
