The connection between good nutrition and long term health is beyond dispute and backed by a wealth of scientific evidence.
What you eat and how you eat effects your health on the long term.
Our diet fails in supplying the essential nutrients we need for optimum health.
We have put good nutrition on the back burner and as a result our diet fails in
supplying even the minimum levels of nutrients that we need for long term health.
Only 9 % of people consume the five daily servings of fresh fruit and vegetables
as recommended by the National Cancer Institute.
Until the 1940’s,farmers used to practice “crop rotation” and returned essential
nutrients back into the soil by mulching,manuring and churning.
Because of growing population it was no longer possible to grow crops this way.
So the farmer use large farms and make use of artificial fertilizers.
But crops can’t make their natural insect repellents with artificial fertilizers.
So the farmer has to use chemical pesticides,which are sprayed on the crop and fruits.
But when we consume those fruits and veges,the chemical pesticides accumulates
in our body and causes disease.
Most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies,which cannot
be remedied until the depleted soils from which our food come,are brought into proper
miniral balance. The alarming fact is,that fruits and vegetables now being raised on
millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals, are starving
us,no matter how much we eat. In other words,we can’t get the necessary nutrients
out of our food.
In 2006, 90% of the Australian population died of a degenerative disease,like cancer,
stroke,diabetes,heart disease,Alzheimer disease etc.
Over 70% of Australian male adults are overweight or obese .
We are not even getting the minimum of RDA levels of vitamins, minerals and anti-
oxidants. The RDA levels were designed in the early 1920’s and 1930’s as minimum
requirements of TEN essential nutrients to protect against acute deficiency diseases,
like Scurvy (deficiency of vit.C), Rickets (deficiency of vit.D) and Pellagra (deficiency
The RDA’s did a good job to eliminate Scurvy and Rickets, but consuming the RDA’s
will not even come close to helping prevent a degenerative disease and our EPIDEMIC
health stats prove that.
To protect us against degenerative diseases we need OPTIMUM levels of nutrients.
Just to make a comparison between the RDA levels and Optimum Levels:
The RDA level for vit.C is 60mg.However,the optimum level is 1300mg.
The RDA level for vit.E is 15 IU’s.But the optimum level is 450 IU’s.
The RDA level for vit.D is 200 IU’s, but the Optimum Level is 600 IU’s.
(IU stands for International Unit).
To be able to get the Optimum Level of vit.C (1300mg) out of our food,we have to
consume 17 medium kiwifruits or 16 medium oranges daily, which is unpractical.
Can you even come close to consuming any of them on a daily basis?
So, what’s the solution? We have three choices:
1.Do nothing and pay the price.
2.Become an old fashion farmer.
3.Take a 1st. grade supplement.
It’s been scientifically proven that there are substantial health benefits in taking
nutritional supplements. The benefits of nutritional supplements are scientifically
verified over the past two years. Hundreds of scientific studies have proved that
nutritional supplements can significantly reduce the risk of degenerative diseases.
Supplements provide a convenient and effective means of achieving good nutrition
every day for a lifetime.
Chronic degenerative diseases are not diseases of old age. Heart disease starts at
childhood. It appears prudent for all children and adults to take vitamin supplements.
Never before has the need for supplementation been greater than in our present time.
