As for the heading “what made us human will keep us human” well the food, drink, medicines etc are not what made us human and are the foundation of nearly all ill health if not all.
What a brash statement!!
A long term study done on a cell (we are made from these) concluded with the cell of a chicken living for 20 plus years which is much longer than the chickens normal life span. The cell in-fact never died the study proved it’s point and was terminated, if a cell is kept in the correct conditions it can live indefinitely, so living in a sollution without strong acids, alkalis. It’s when our bodies are too acidic that disease spreads.
We need to keep our body in the PH neutral or close condition to aid our bodies natural immune system and fight disease.
So if we eat and drink the things that are low in acids and chemicals our bodies will be much less likely to catch and spread disease, basically - the food our ancestors ate kept them healthy. This does however mean avoiding processed foods, and instead eating total organic foods and filtered waters, you see modern agriculture/shopping are some of the biggest issues that face us today.
(Nearly everything in the supermarket has had chemicals added at some stage in the process, either early on in the farmers field to prevent insects etc or later on in a factory to aid shelf life).
Even most of the meat we consume has been altered with the wrong feed including hormones and chemicals to ensure a plump beast (plump but unhealthy, diseased, shorter life span and stressed)
Agriculture - Supermarkets (introductions of unhealthy modern processes and food stuffs)
- White sugar used after 1800
- Potatoes after 1750
- Highly processed foods(mostly after 1800)
- Pesticides after 1930
- Radioactive foods after 1945
- Artificial/ synthetic additives mostly after 1950
80% of foods in the supermarkets never existed 100 years ago, also around 80% is carbohydrate based, when we should only be eating around 30-50% carbs as part fo a healthy diet. Likewise around 80% is packaged for long life (additives for shelf life)
Top tip taken from Nutritionists, research and experience
** the quicker a food spoils the more nutritious it is, eat food in it’s natural state. Just see how quick organic produce goes off compared to non organic.**
But Glenn we are living longer than ever before? - from time to time i hear that we are healthier than ever before: JUST NOT TRUE
Cambridge University experts say that humans are past their peak and that modern day people are 10% smaller and shorter than their hunter gatherer ancestors, this decline has happened over the past 10,000 years.
Some experts have claimed that brain capacity is actually decreasing due to the reduction in omega 3 consumption, which has been estimated to be as much as 80%.
What can we do / eat?
- Eat plenty of lean meat and fish, organic as often as you can. Game is great and very healthy (venison etc).
- Filtered water, lots of it.
- Green leafy veg and fruit, organic is best (get an allotment- great way of living longer, the health benefits of vitamin D and fresh air and work).
- Get outside as often as you can, the vitamin D from the sun, fresh air, nature the earth will recharge your batteries and make you feel invincible.
- AVOID PACKAGED, PROCESSED FOODS WHERE POSSIBLE
Trust the 100.000 generations as a hunter gatherer, it’s a problem manufactured in 500 generations of agriculture and 10 generations of industry.
