An NEW Diet for Cancer Patients, Part 2
Last time we covered the topics of building disease in the body, how the term ‘cure’ is misleading, ways to incorporating plant-based live-food nutrition into your daily routine of eating, and how it all relates to cancer. This time we will cover some areas that we should cut out of our eating routine right away to see quick results, thought processes around change, as well as a few new recipes for you to try out.
The topic of America’s ‘Cheap’ food model is a hot one right now. Everything from processing to preservatives, ingredients hidden behind misleading words to just plain hidden ingredients, GMO’s to cooked, fried, broiled, sauteed, boiled foods. Let’s explore these topics individually for a moment.
Why is processing so bad? Here’s a great example: cut open an apple and let it set on your counter for about 10 minutes. What happens? The inside white portion starts to turn brown. This is the ‘oxidation’ process meaning that when we expose more surface area of our whole plant foods to the air the oxygen in the air begins to react with the inner components of the food and the decay process is initiated. If we leave the apple there it will eventually completely breakdown and ‘rot’. If we left the apple whole it would take much longer for this process to happen. So when our food, that we buy from the store in bags and boxes, goes through manufacturing procedures it is exposed to oxygen to a greater degree than making it at home and eating it right away.
Why are preservatives bad? You’d naturally think that if processing exposes the food to oxygen causing it to decay faster then why not use preservatives. This is a logical progression and does makes sense. However, in our big manufacturing day and age, we are always looking to save money to increase profits. At one time we did use natures supply of preservatives like lemon juice and salt. Nowadays we are using synthetic alternatives because they cost less and store longer but the price we pay is with our health.
