The French have a clever saying that “We dig our own graves with our teeth”. Yes, the expression ‘You are what you eat’ has a clear ring of truth. Current investigation and countless testimonies indicate that poor nutrition is a key factor in how many diseases develop.
highly processed food that basically are ‘dead’ foods
Many consume on a daily basis highly processed food that basically are ‘dead’ foods. To this we add pesticides, fertilizers, chemicals, growth hormones and genetically modified crops to increase shelf-life; the list goes on and on. Degenerative illnesses and tumors are also linked to nutritional deficiency.
Nutritional deficiency disrupts intercellular communication and leads to hormonal imbalance and structural alterations in amino acids. All this affects the entire cell reproduction mechanism and DNA instructions. This is particularly so in the case of diseases that attack the nervous system and induce severe neurological damage. Patients suffering from a degenerative disease who have an unbalanced, unhealthy diet are at a higher risk of contracting a virus, a fungus or some other unwanted microorganism. We live in a fast-paced, fast-food society where ready-made meals and canned food are commonplace.
Regular consumption of potato chips (crisps), industrially-made cakes, as well as fried food, constitutes a serious health risk factor. Similarly, it is important to avoid ready-made meals, processed meats (hot dogs, sausages, bacon, and ham), fast- food and food additives, etc.

Avoid like the plague white refined sugar which is found in many prepared foods, store baked pastries, chocolate bars, and ice cream.
Another very dangerous ‘food’ are soft (fizzy) drink, both regular and low calorie. “Coke is no Joke” as it causes osteoporosis, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease, flu, colds, run down worn out feeling.
But not just cola drinks, all soft drinks contain more than 10 teaspoons of refined white sugar which if they didn’t you could not drink them due to the high level of acids.
No wonder there is a huge upsurge of hip and knee replacements, tooth decay and osteoporosis.
If you want a nice refreshing drink try putting pure grape juice or some other fruit juice into natural sparkling water, like Perrier water (not soda water or tonic water as they contain sugar) and add ice. If you buy store bought fruit juice because it’s not practical to always make fresh juice, look for juices that are in the refrigerated section that are pure juices with no sugar or additives.
Refined vegetable oils, containing trans fats, are widely used for deep-frying (chips, fried chicken, pastries) and processed foods (mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, and others sauces and dressings). When ingested excessively, they actually suffocate the cells, depriving them of oxygen. Vegetable and oils may be labeled “100% pure”. Even if partly natural, these are still manipulated products. Why? Because most manufacturers extract oils from plants using extremely high temperatures and chemical products.

When these oils are mixed with proteins, they hinder blood and lymphatic circulation, cause heart damage and inhibit our regeneration process.
This slows down – and potentially halts completely – the bio-electric activity in these areas. According to Dr. Budwig, corrosive and caustic chemical products, namely, sodium hydroxide (commonly known for its use as a drain cleaner) are also used in the refining process.
Eliminating these harmful pseudo fats and replacing them with healthier ones (e.g. flaxseed oil and other cold-pressed oils) is a giant step towards fighting cancer and other diseases.
