I was SHOCKED at the science that has been done and which stands behind the theory of not eating processed meats and foods!
There is so much research over the course of so many years (dating back before my birth over 27 years ago) and so much has been somewhat "hidden" or "masked" from people. Now don't get me wrong. I'm not one of those "hippie" types or the type to say everything I see in a movie or documentary must be legit. I am not the type to condemn you for your choices and insist you walk the same path as I. I am completely the opposite. But I DO find pleasure in educating others and sharing information I find interesting, informative or possibly even life saving.
And that is what I saw last night.
Life saving information.
I was raised to believe that the Food Pyramid given to me by my government and USDA, school system, etc was the best for me. I was always told that I get my calcium from my dairy products and my protein from my meat products... when those very products are KILLING our society... promoting cancer cells growth, etc.
If someone is genetically inclined to cancer, the proteins and such in meats (processed meat products-a.k.a. anything that used to live, breath, walk, slither, have eyes, and a mouth, yadda yadda yadda) actually STIMULATE the growth of those cells and promote the growth of cancer! The places in our society that eat no meat or very little meat in general have next to no occurrences of cancer deaths.
I was amazed at the science that has backed this and how I had never been told this by the people who are supposed to be telling me what is best for me from the time I am young. Just sad that these people who control the market (they are the primary shareholders in the meat industries, etc) are simply willing to kill others to benefit themselves.
Anyhow, I do believe a new lifestyle is out there for me. A vegan lifestyle. One I am willing to begin and ready to allow it to change my life.
I hope that the things I have mentioned here will send you to watch the video as I was AMAZED at what I saw. Please keep an open mind. :)
