But in our society, people eat what they like, what tastes best and is affordibale, but no one really knows what is really healthy.
There is also a lot of false information out there, because the industry wants to earn billions of money and they use the complexity of food to
confuse the people. Then they say, we have to put much sugar into cereals, because people buy it. But there are only a few good nutrition experts out there to help us to swim against the medioc main stream of nutrition. Highly processed food pasteurized and cooked food is dead food.
I created a bad eating habbit, because I wanted to reward myself with sweets. It is kind of interesting, sugar - sweets can be a dangerous substitude for love and acceptance. What I found out, that white refined sugar is dangerous in big quantities, because it eats up the minerals in the body and causes hair and bone loss. It also is acidic and that causes the body to use up the few minerals in the blood to keep the right ph in the blood.
If the body has a lack of minerals, because of poor nutrition, than it has to take the minerals of the hair. The hair gets thinner and falls out over the period of years. As I improved my diet with fresh made vegetable juices and sprouts my hair became stronger and thicker. Also I cut short the bad sweets like cookies , cakes, chocolate, ice cream...
That is why I love books like the hippocraties diet, because they give us precious informations, how to feed our bodies healthy. The only thing which is not up to date are the old models of juicers. Back 50 years ago the champion juicer was the top of the line, today it is the Omega VSJ 843 430$, or the angel juicer 959$.
First I believed healthy food tastes no good. But that is wrong. There are many thousands of recipies out there, which taste great, you only have to check them out. The tastebuts change after they get used to certain foods. I will grow wheatgrass myself and do sprouting, because this is the best way to have high quality food for maximum life and fun.
