Yes, we are a nation in starvation and that is what this article is all about. The truth is we are starving from lack of nutrition, we are starving for the truth about our food supply, our so-called health care system, our financial situation, our legal system, our morality, our moral responsibilities, and our God-given rights that were secured by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
Over the last few decades, millions of people are aware of the lack of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids in the American diet. Allow me to offer a challenge to all people reading this article, but especially those who are responsible for raising children. The challenge is to look at the nutrient values in everything you eat, especially what you are allowing your children to eat.
Almost everyone who has taken this challenge begins to realize just how nutrient deficient our food supply has become. Most of the food we feed our children and adults contains plenty calories but not nearly enough nutrients. Calories without nutrients cannot sustain life. Remember, calories are not necessarily nutrients.
Just one example is a favorite among the American children called macaroni and cheese. Don’t just look at the ingredient list, look at the nutrient list. The most popular brand delivers only 10% of the RDA of calcium, only 15% of the RDA of iron, and only 6% of the potassium. While it has no vitamin D, (where did the cheese come from), it does contain 360 calories in each cup. It would take 10 servings a day just to cover the calcium needs while delivering over 3,600 basically empty calories, adding to our obesity epidemic.
Even if you try hard to choose so-called healthy foods such as vegetables, fruits, or even salads, you would have to eat between 14 and 21 pounds a day to even get close to the Recommended Death Allowance. No, that wording wasn’t an accident because if all the nutrients you get in your daily diet is the Recommended Daily Allowance, you will most likely die many years younger than your genetic potential from some form of deficiency disorder.
So, now that you know that we are a nation in starvation, is there something that each of us can do to make sure we are receiving those precious nutrients? Yes, each of us can take responsibility for ourselves and our children by supplementing our diet. Today, only a fool would believe that we get everything we need in the four basic food groups. Evidence is everywhere. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, arthritis, many digestive disorders including IBS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and all the auto-immune disorders are the results of poor nutrition. There are many more. The only safe and effective way to combat degenerative disease is through proper nutrition.
NEWtritional Health Care LLC, our parent company, has developed over 40 products that were formulated specifically to supply the human body with the nutrients that are necessary to support natural health. All our formulas are safe, even with medications. There are no negative effects but many side benefits. Most people will express how much better they feel and how much less pain they are experiencing.
With that written, be diligent and look at the labels of the food you are eating to see just how deficient they are and face the facts. Even if you eat healthier, you will find out that you are still short of the important nutrients. Settle in your mind that in order to cover all the basics, you must supplement.
