If you want to help detox your body and give your body the tools it needs to help you live in optimal health, you must increase the variety and consistency of plant nutrition in your body. You may say, "I eat fruits and vegetables." I do too - as many as I can. But I'm here to tell you, there are some startling trends happening in our country and I believe we need to give our bodies as much help as we possible can. Here are some of the most important issues we face in our health journeys today.
The toxicity of our planet is going up. Chemicals and hazardous waste, pharmaceutical drugs are in our water supply, in our soil and, in our bodies. A study of umbilical cord blood found 287 pollutants.
The quality of our food in going down. Our grocery store shelves are now filled with what is better described as "food like products" - manufactured products with unpronounceable ingredients. And our fruits and vegetables only have a fraction of the nutritional value of the same fruits and vegetables from years ago. The soil isn't as nutritious and the produce now gets picked before it's vine-ripened and shipped long distances to get to us, making it jet lagged and depleted.
We are overfishing polluted fish. It’s estimated that it takes 3-4 pounds of fish to produce just one fish oil capsule. And the popularity of fish-based omegas has lead to a huge overfishing problem. Some estimates give us less than 35 years before our oceans could be completely depleted. And, due to above said toxicity, many of the fish in our waters now have at minimum traces of heavy metals; at worst drugs and other chemicals.
We are running out of plantable soil and clean water. We are going to run out of soil to plant fresh fruits and vegetables and water to grow them. We need to come up with new ways to grow and ways to use less water.
Simple changes can have a massive impact on our own bodies and this planet.
