There is no getting away from it – the human race IS linked completely to the environment. That is so whether individuals like it or not! It’s just the way it is – live with it!! These days the huge influx of people into the cities and towns mean that many do not always consider the environment in any way – to their own potential detriment.
These days many people probably just don’t consider that the natural world around them has any real personal effect on them.
The 20th century brought huge changes to the way we work, the way we live and also to what we eat. Back in the Second World War the land armies were brought into action to feed the country and the intensive farming era started to move in. While that was a real necessity in the day, the increased intensive farming has now had a huge effect on our eating habits. The advent of the huge stores and foreign imports has also wrought havoc on the natural food supplies. Much of the food on supermarket shelves purports to be fresh, when it has probably been “kept fresh” under very unnatural conditions – that is a whole other topic to consider!
With the changes in the environment and the huge increase in world population over the years there has been a definite “knock-on” effect to the human body. This is regardless of what we are told by the food companies, government departments, the health services and any other “department of authority” you might care to think about!
50+ years ago our grandparents could expect to be able to have nutritious food that would sustain their need for good health. The fact is that food grown back then was done so in land that was not over farmed and covered with artificial fertiliser and chemical sprays. The fertility of the land had not been destroyed.
The very fact that any food grown these days falls way short of the nutritional standards required for optimal health is now well known. The fertility of agricultural soil these days is hugely lacking and the shocking decline has come about in a VERY short period of time. It’s even a fact that much properly grown organic food is not as nutritious as it used to be. (The proper organic food should, however, be less contaminated by chemicals.)

The other side to all this is even more serious. Due to the fact that more environmental pollution of various kinds is always with us, to combat any affect from that, we need to be better nutritionally balanced than ever.
There is no surprise that health suffers – you hear it in the media virtually every day; the numbers in hospital, the rising obesity and diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s – it’s all around us. Many people don’t seem to care and will expect an overloaded health system to look after them.
The conditions that are causing increased death and disease are not viruses and bacteria, as the media and “powers that be” would have us all believe – it’s the preventable degenerative diseases mentioned above – heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s…..
Over 90% of illness is metabolic and related mainly to the way we feed ourselves. The underlying nutritional deficiencies should be addressed to slow and even halt the onset of disease.
Does this alarm or surprise you?
If the answers are known, why is nothing done about it?
As someone who is, I suspect, interested in health matters, would you agree that we have to take it upon ourselves to find out more good information that can help us and our families stay well?
I have a set of links below that are areas where you can find out more if you wish.
- Simply Naturals – Read Testimonial and the What Doctors Say links
- Phillip Day’s Credence Organisation & his other site here
- Chris Woollams’ Canceractive
- Robert Redfern – Good Health Naturally.
- Alliance for Natural Health
- Natural News – The Health Ranger
I think that’s enough to be going on with, but it DOES show how much information is out there if we just look for it and ask for help.
I hope that is of interest – it’s all information I have found “out there” in books, at talks and other areas over the last ten or so years…If it is useful and helps I’m pleased.
Bye for now
