I just found out from my Mother-in-law that artificial additives when given to kids acts like speed when kids ingest it. Parents are giving their their kids Ritalin to try and help with with their children being hyper (I was a really hyper kid and ate total bad things). When maybe they can try and get rid of all the preservatives out of their diet and it might help the kids a lot. Pretty cool to know something so small can help out. Maybe if we all try and eat healthier lifestyles the stores will start carrying more natural foods.
We noticed that Costco in Gilbert has really started to carry more organic things, which expiration dates. Fresh foods decay more quickly because they have more nutritional value. quoted from:http://www.alive.com
We mainly shop at Trader Joe’s and Sprouts for 95% of our food because you don’t have to worry there will ever be preservatives or high fructose corn syrup in them. The another nice thing about Trader Joe’s also is that everything is under $2-$3 for the most part unless it’s meats or alcohol.
I have been reading about Mono and health because I just found out I have Mono and Parvovirus B19. My Father had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma years ago and had 5 tumors in his Lymph nodes. His Dr. told us we need to be checked for it.I started fasting for him with prayers and learned at the same time about cleansing and read everything I could about it. I learned from doing it, my skin would totally clear up and eczema, my bad sinuses etc too. I used to say it was like an oil change for your body. It drains are the garbage out of your body. I was in the best health of my life when I used to cleanse.
When you have toxins from eating bad food and drinks it builds up in your system and causes kinda a pollution in your body like a cesspool. Poor diet, stress and heavy metal and environmental toxicity, which may result in hormonal dysfunction, fatigue, pain, arthritis, lack of energy, obesity, depression, cancer, immune suppression and chronic degenerative disease. I started reading about cleansing because I haven’t been this sick since I was a teenager. It just seems like more and more people you talk to these days are getting cancer or their family members are getting it. So many people are dying of it. I think if you try and prevent it and keep cleansed.
If you ever want more information about it let me know, I love talking about it.
What is the Master Cleanse?
The master cleanse consists of 6 to 12 glasses a day of:
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (helps to keep your glucose up)
- 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper (or less, to taste. I never did this)
- 8 oz water
Here is a great website on cleansing I found for cleaning the liver: www.healingdaily.com/
“A study of 297 children published in The Lancet found a significant number of children became more inattentive, impulsive and hyperactive when given a test drink with artificial additives.” quoted from http://www.redicecreations.com/

Artificial preservatives are used to keep food fresh by preventing bacterial and fungal growth. While natural preservatives are plentiful, most food products use artificial and synthetic preservatives. These preservatives may claim to be safe, but in reality most of the foods that are high on artificial preservatives are not good for health. Ignorant of the possible side effects and chemicals being used, most of us end up consuming such foods which, in the long run, affects our health adversely.
Many products such as fruits, wine and dried fruits and vegetables contain sulphur dioxide and sulphites that prevents them from getting brown. Sulphites can be linked with hyperactivity and is not good for asthmatics.
To add flavor and maintain color, nitrates are used. Higher quantities of nitrates can be hazardous. Moreover, infants and children should avoid the intake of nitrates. Infants, in particular, run a greater risk of being affected by nitrate intake. Nitrates can get converted into nitrites during digestion and mix with hemoglobin to form a harder substance that makes it difficult for the blood to carry oxygen.
Butylated hydroxyanisole and hydroxytoluene (BHT) are also used as preservatives in many food products. They have carcinogenic characteristics and can even lead to tumors and cancer. Hyperactivity, asthma attack, cholesterol imbalance are other disorders that can happen due to the excess intake of foods using these preservatives. However, BHT has been banned in several countries.
Benzoic acid is yet another preservative that is used primarily in various kinds of sauce. This again can lead to hyperactivity and also skin and eye irritations. It is absolutely a no-no for asthmatic people and can also lead to neurological problems.
It is always better to consume natural foods. Avoid beverages and soft drinks. Also, there are certain brands that offer ready to eat cut fruit with zero artificial preservatives. Reduce the intake of artificially flavored foods and have more of natural foods. This will keep you healthy forever.
