Is Your Fruit Real?

May 26th, 2011

Is your family eating all of their fruits and vegetables?  Be honest… ok.  Lets talk fruit.  Are you eating real fruit… or fake fruit?  Check out this article below from the Esuna Health Journal …

Blueberries! They’re good for you! High in antioxidants! Delicious! Except when they’re made out of “sugar, corn syrup, starch, hydrogenated oil, artificial flavors and artificial food dye blue No. 2 and red No. 40,” as found in a new report.

The investigation, conducted by NaturalNewsTV, reveals the truth staring you in the face from the back of that box of “blueberry” muffins (or bagels, or bread, or scones, or many, many others). The blueberries, simply, aren’t. They’re made of wacky sounding concoctions like “blueberry bits,” which, contrary to their title, are not blueberries. Not even bits of them. Sometimes a product maintains some tenuous connection to blueberry honesty with a “dash of blueberry puree concentrate.” Sometimes there’s just zero trace of blueberries at all.

Fake blueberry-ness is okay in, say, Skittles, or a popsicle. But not muffins in a box adorned with giant photos of blueberries. Next time you hit the grocery aisle, read the back of the package. Or, just buy actual blueberries—if you squeeze them and they don’t burst into a puddle of partially hydrogenated soybean oil and dye, odds are you’re safe.

RDA vs. ODA

May 26th, 2011

Many so-called experts will tell you not to worry about taking vitamins if you are eating a balanced diet.  Unfortunately, dieting alone can’t provide enough essential vitamins and minerals to promote enough  optimal health.  For instance, you would need to consume 5,000 calories per day (mostly fat) in order to get the  recommended minimum (400 IU) of vitamin E, and 12,000 calories per day to get the minimum amount of chromium.  Most of our foods are processed and therefore, the nutrients have been leeched out of them.  Could this be one of the reasons pre-senile dementia and Alzheimer’s disease have increased so dramatically over the last few decades?

Thousands of studies validate the benefits of taking a multivitamin/mineral formula on a daily basis.  These studies have been reported in medical journals, popular newspapers and magazines.  A good multivitmain/mineral formula offers a broad range of health benefits.  Taking a daily multivitamin/mineral formula reduces the incidence of heart disease, heart attack, stroke, glaucoma, depression, macular degeneration, diabetes, senile dementia and various cancers.

Almost as unacceptable as not recommending vitamin and mineral supplements is the recommendation of them based on the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA).  The RDA is the measured amount or dosage of nutrient per vitamin and minerals recommended.  The U.S. Federal government sets these levels based on the “average adult.”

The “average person plan” assumes that you are an adult under 60 years of age who is in good health, has normal digestion, isn’t overweight, leads a relatively stress-free life, has no medical problems, doesn’t take any medication, eats a balanced diet, and consumes 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.  Needless to day, most adult women don’t meet the RDA for zinc, vitamin B, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin E.  Likewise, most adult men don’t meet the RDA for zinc and magnesium.  Fewer that 29% of people eat 5 fresh fruit and vegetables a day.  Furthermore, 20% of the U.S. Population doesn’t eat ANY fruits or vegetables at all!

The recommended daily allowance is some fifty years out of date.  It was never intended to advance health, only to prevent malnutrition diseases like scurvy or rickets.  Taking the minimum amount of a nutrient to prevent gross deficiency diseases doesn’t help those people who want to be truly healthy and not just be free of symptoms.

The RDA is inadequate if your goal is for prevention and or treatment of heart disease, cancer, cataracts, depression, senility, diabetes, arthritis, and other age related disorders.  For optimal health and well being, many health practitioners are recommending many times higher that the RDA on certain nutrients.
