Why are organic, living foods essential in daily life?

In recent history we have managed to drastically change the chemistry of the environment in which we live.

In 1996 (a random year from the EPA, USA) alone, more than 418,000,000 pounds of chemicals were released into the ground, threatening our food and water supplies.

Over 45,000,000 pounds of chemicals were also discharged into surface waters such as lakes and rivers.

More than 1,000,000,000 pounds of chemical emissions were pumped into the atmosphere.

A grand total of 2,433,506,582 pounds of chemical pollutants were released into the environment, all in that one year alone.

We all eat, breathe and live in these chemical pollutants through the interconnectedness of our environment, through our oceans, air currents etc.

Consider the food we eat, the environment we live in and combine that with the daily emotional stresses, it is not surprising that we accumulate spiritual and physical toxins.

Most of us will not escape the reality of worldwide pollution today.

This toxicity is always an underlying accompanying factor contributing to ill health.

The most vulnerable are our children and as we get older toxins will accumulate and distort healthy physiology.

We are experiencing new childhood epidemics with Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies.

One in three people, roughly, will experience some form of Cancer today.

So what are the few, most far-reaching actions we can take to help change this?

Go organic and increase your intake of plant foods. Why?

  • When we eat raw/living plant foods we under-eat naturally and effortlessly, due to their nutrient density, especially if they are organic, living/raw plant foods.
  • When we eat organic plant foods our insulin response is more stable, due to the natural unprocessed sugars and starches of plant foods. Essential with the Diabetes epidemic.
  • When we eat organic plant foods we eat low on the food chain and drastically reduce our intake of pollutants. Animal products accumulate the most pollution in the food chain.
  • When we eat organic plant foods we reduce the poisoning of the earth, of ourselves as well as our animals by minimising our carbon footprint and hence preserving our precious environment for our children.
  • When eating organic plant foods, whether we know it or not, we elevate our consciousness.

Maybe we should recommend this to the Trumps of this world?

What we are showing you today is how to prepare living photon-rich, nutrient dense plant-based recipes to add to your existing diet.
