Something.. interesting =)

Well.. someone actually gave me this article saying it has something to do with the previous entry.. It was super interesting to me.. You guys should read it too.. have fun~ (o^-^o)v

Here is a funny story first... A DOCTOR from Maryland, USA is suing KFC for using a cooking oil that contains high levels of trans fat. The retired physician Dr Arthur Hoyte says "If I had known that KFC uses an unnatural frying oil, and that their food was so high in trans fat, I would have reconsidered my choices".

I find this seriously funny! How can a medical practitioner honestly think that KFC was good for him even when he was licking his chicken greased transfat covered fingers??? Or the slimy shiny grease you see when you separate the parts of the chicken, break the biscuits, or anything else served at KFC? Or... from the grease dripping on his napkins... or, from the oily layers of fat coating his fingers???

Incredibly, this lawsuit comes from a physician. How do you pass medical school without having the common sense to know that something with so much fat and oil can't be good for you? It boggles my mind!

But it also illustrates beautifully how we are eating whatever rubbish the food industry is creating for us without pausing for a second to wonder whether its good for us or not. And its not only us the "lay people" who are confused, look at the darkness our friendly doctors are in... How inspiring!

Now there is a reason why our beloved doctors are totally so ignorant about so many obvious things. Take for example the obesity problem and other weight related diseases (blocked artery, hypertension, bone problems, diabetes etc). How come we hear so little about the ill effects of these junk fast food? Yeah I know, they told you to avoid fried food. But how come most people dont pay attention?

Here is why... the trillions of dollars worth food industry employs some of the most brilliant minds to study consumer psychology and what makes you buy. The advertisements, celebrity endorsements, discounts, movies that feature a particular product etc are all designed to make you do one thing: Buy their burgers / chicken / whatever else. Believe me when I say this, these food companies and their marketing people know about hypnosis and compounding and neuro linguistic programming. They know how to show you the same advert over and over and over again to program it inside of your brain. So the next time you feel hungry in a shopping mall, you arent going to go to the little shop selling fresh fruits and juices, you are going to go join the queue on McDonalds. It just makes "perfect sense" at the time doesnt it? Who wants a banana anyway?

Here is a little scarier side to this all...

The simplest rule of marketing is this: Find more buyers, sell them more products, make them buy more often.

Got that?

More buyers, more products, more often!

Good. Now lets play a game: pretend that you are a board member of a large pharmaceutical company. When it is time to allocate funds for research and development, following the rules of marketing, for which area would you allocate more funds? Drugs that you need to take once and it cures you forever? Or drugs that you need to regularly take to keep you healthy? THINK!

Here is the answer: Over 80% of all medical research world wide is done on maintenance drugs (drugs that treat the symptom of a disease rather than cure the disease itself).

Interesting isn't it?

Now any chance you are beginning to get a hunch about who else benefits from this massive bombardment of marketing messages of the food industry? I guess I'll leave it to you to figure out.

Back to the original issue, the reason doctors have no idea about so many obvious things is mostly because they are too busy to learn anything other than what is supplied to them from the pharmaceutical companies. (By the way, we the consumers are not the target customer of the pharmaceutical companies, its the doctors. They spend most of their marketing investments on doctors who in turn prescribe their medicines to YOU and ME. And for all medicines bought by YOU and ME, the doctor gets a commission. Dont believe me? Ask your doctor.) The pharmaceutical companies educate the doctors through their sales people (attractive women usually) who give commissions to the doctors and staff, send invitations to expensive dinner and cocktail parties where they learn more about the "break through new medicines".

That is why we still know only about chemotherapy for cancer treatment, while there is a huge range of alternative, inexpensive natural cures. These cures are not only disregarded by the medical industry, its also labeled as dangerous! And we, YOU and ME, believe that its all true. How can we not? The doctors said it!

Anyway, I'll finish todays mail by telling you about the 900 cats experiment. It will show you (if you choose to believe) how we are killing ourselves everyday... both individually and as a species. Many years ago Dr. Francis M. Pottenger, while working at his father's sanatorium for the treatment of human tuberculosis patients in Monrovia, California, conducted what became known as the Pottenger cat study.

The experiment included 900 cats over four generations and was well documented by Dr. Pottenger. The cats were divided into five groups. All the groups were supplied the same basic minimal diet, but the major portion of the diets were varied. Two of the groups were fed whole foods (raw milk and meat - real foods for cats). The other three groups were given processed and cooked foods including pasteurized, evaporated and condensed milk.

All four generations of the raw meat and raw milk groups remained healthy throughout their normal life spans.

The first generation of all three cooked food groups developed diseases and illnesses near the end of their lives.

The second generation of all three cooked food groups developed diseases and illnesses in the middle of their lives.

The third generation of all three cooked food groups developed diseases and illnesses in the beginning of their lives and many died before six months of age.

And here is the best one! There was no fourth generation in any of the three cooked food groups. Either the third generation parents were sterile or the fourth generation cats were died before birth!

Does this give you an understanding of why so many children are now developing cancer? Why we have such a huge obese population around the world? Why heart diseases increasing every year? Why so many young men and women are dying of coronary blockages?

The findings were supervised by Dr. Pottenger along with Dr. Alvin Foord, professor of pathology at the University of Southern California and pathologist at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena.

Regarding applying his results to human nutrition, Dr. Pottenger said, "While no attempt will be made to correlate the changes in the animals studied with malformations found in humans, the similarity is so obvious that parallel pictures will suggest themselves."

Unfortunately, there is no similar experiment in medical literature for humans.

Now as you read this, you are probably wondering what are you supposed to do? Eat raw meat? No, not really. You dont have to take it to an extreme if you dont want to. There is however a lot of choices once you make a decision that you are not going to serve as a hypnotized lab rat for the multi trillion dollar food industry and medical industry and the not to mention the dairy industry (which not only enjoys the blessings of doctors and health practitioners, but mothers and grannies and so on). Once you make that decision to believe what you just read, you will see the options.

By the way, if you think all that you have just read are some new radical discoveries, let me assure you its not. World wide people are waking up and understanding more and more the ill effects of processed foods, dairy goods, junk fast food, different medical drugs and therapy. Now whether you are going to wake up and see the truth or not is your choice, but let me assure you that your decision will affect you, your children, your grandchildren, and their children (if they at all survive).

I watched the Health Chnl a while back and an argument one of the interviewee (an organic food pratitioner) said "You'll never see an oversize girraffe or elephant, or lion (or any other animal for that matter) in the wild. Yet everywhere you can see humans that are double even triple the natural size we were built to be." Just thought it's an interesting statement/fact to share

well seriously we can't avoid eating food that is not genetically engineered,even in the remotest part the seed of corn is already been altered.In the race to produce more and more product,more additives been added. However I think the best way is to cook for yourselves most of the time.I guess only you yourselves knows what kind of food you're lacking

p/s: am i speaking in the topic at all?oh well...

the thing is, everyone knows that everything sold that dont print 'organic product' labels are practically GEd. but we chose to shove them down our throats anyways. because its easier, faster and cheaper. tapi aku memasak seniri heheh. but none of them could be in the 'healthy food' category.
