Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

Meat Glue holds it together

Here's a new one.  Meat glue.  I've never heard of it until today and I have to say I'm not surprised.  It just goes to show how important it is for all of us to be more interested in what's not being reported on the news than what is.  From what I read, the FDA recognizes meat glue as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).  As with most everything else, just follow the money trail.

Now, I'm completely on board with those who want to be creative and use scraps so as not to waste anything.  However I'm not on board when deceit is involved.  Are you really getting what you’re paying for or are you spending your hard earned money on meats that aren’t really what you think they are?

Of course, it's no suprise that those who profit from meat glue will tell us that it's safe and has no negative side effects.  But if they weren't profitting from it, would they use it?  It's doubtful.  Why would they waste time on something that wouldn't enhance and increase profits?   

Here are some questions you should be asking yourself and your butcher:

  1. Where do you buy your meats?
  2. Do you know where the meat comes from?
  3. Do you know how the animals live and what they’re fed, i.e. Do they live in tight spaces/cages or do they live in their natural environment where they have access to the outside with sunshine.  Are theyfed a proper diet like grass?  
  4. Do you even know what they should be fed and how they should live?
  5. Do you know if the animals were given hormones and antibiotics (it is unlawful in the United States for farmers to inject chickens we will eat with hormones). 
If you don’t think these are important questions to ask, think again. Just because your parents or grandparents had no need or reason to ask these questions of their butcher many years ago, the fact is, we have the need and many reasons to ask today. Managed sick care is big business and it just keeps on growing.

Advances in technology can be a good thing if used properly and for our good.  But when it has been taken beyond the scope of truth in order to deceive those who support it, that's where we, as consumers, must take a step back and question it.  I hope you will do just that.    

What is meat glue is and why is it dangerous and deceptive? Find out in this video and article.
