Nutrition

the challenge: nutrition

Do you believe our food contains the same nutritional value today as it did 50 years ago?
Have our farming practices and processing methods changed?

There are 3 main challenges facing us now:

  • 1
    The majority of people do not know what good nutrition looks like and how to plan healthy meals that will give you energy for your day, the ability to manage stress, strengthen your immune system, sleep better, and age more youthfully.
  • 2
    Our food has become nutritionally bankrupt leaving our bodies depleted, creating cravings and overeating in an attempt to feel replenished.

    In 1997 UCLA conducted a study of the effects of iron in spinach. It was concluded that you would have to eat 43 bowls of spinach in 1997 to equal just 1 bowl in 1953! Not only was the spinach deficient in iron, but other minerals as well. The UCLA study showed:

    “Spinach’s potassium content dropped by 53 percent, its phosphorus by 70 percent, its iron by 60 percent and its copper by 96 percent.”

    Toxicity. The air we breath, the water we shower in, the food we eat and the worlds we live in is a toxic environment. Our bodies are built to cleanse toxins but we are on toxic overload causing our body to store these toxins in dangerous visceral fat in an attempt to protect us.

    In 2013 the Environmental Defence tested the umbilical cord of newborns for toxins finding a total of 137 chemicals overall. They also screened for 209 different PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, and found 96 overall in the babies’ cord blood. PCBs, which have been linked to cancers in both animals and humans, were banned in Canada in 1977. “What this shows is that once chemicals get out into the environment, they persist,” said Winterton. “And banning them doesn’t mean they’re necessarily going to go away.”
