When you walk through the aisles of the grocery store, you may pick up several products from the shelves, as you carefully plan your meals for the upcoming week. Does your shopping cart consist of the best healthy foods for your body?
As a society, we mysterious wonder what causes the common conditions and diseases that cripple the lives of millions, such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
It has less to do with genetics, rather more with the food that we consume notoriously on a daily basis in North America.
The human body requires 20 or 21 minerals, 13 vitamins, eight amino acids, and two essential fatty acids. Children require 10 amino acids, while premature infants require 11. We also require more power from natural elements, such as from water, oxygen, and light, and also a dietary source of energy with glucose or starch being common ones. Such factors are required for good health.
There are several processed and refined foods that should be removed from grocery store shelves, which would make your weekly food shopping a lot easier. That’s because these so-called healthy foods aren’t healthy at all.
I believe the following five “foods” should be banned worldwide, especially in North America. This would instantly reduce the risk of diseases that plague society today. You may think these five are healthy foods—but they’re far from it.
