What did I THINK? Absolutely one very informative book. The China Study

I wanted to share this inside story with you. While it has nothing to do with eBay Vintage and Etsy Antique items my main subject on this blog. By the way, click Etsy and save 10% off your selection of items. My eBay shop Stirred2Genreosity where you can make offers on most any of the items. (hint put your email in the slot at the top of the page, promise I will not see it. Don't worry I am retired and don't have time to spam.) Back to today's blog, it is all about diet and what we put into our God-given body. We laugh and make jokes saying "you are what you eat." Do you really believe that? It is the truth, so just what is it you are eating. I'm not talking about just if you love meat and have to have it. Or if you go totally raw foods or vegetables and none other. And can you imagine there is even talk about 3D printing food? "it converts proteins from algae, beet leaves or insects into tasty products. " Sounds like what I want to eat? No Thanks. The thought that ones "nutrition" could be at stake concerns me when looking at this option. God intended that our food is enriched by the soil, fresh air, sun light and rain along with other qualities nature offers. Is life moving so fast for people that real food and it's a benefit to the human body has to be made in a copy machine? We have to think of health and the ramifications of long term use of food from a copier. If this is a desire for the masses then more power to them, I'll grow from seed, harvest, prepare and cook my food. You would be doing yourself a super big favor to read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, Thomas M. Campbell II And I am not selling my copy. I have in fact bought copies to give away to some of my co-workers when I was employed. (now Retired) What did I THINK? Absolutely one very informative book on diet and health, backed by untold numbers of reports and years, and years of study and research. Long ago when I began my journey on gaining control of bad health with high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. My doctor put me on pills for all of those things. He then told me to lose weight as well. I asked him for alternative options for the pills. Seeking to go with a "natural" approach whatever that might be? He told me that there wasn't anything that could be done from a natural point of view. Well, I did not like that answer. However, I began taking the prescribed medication. But did not like that I would need to take this from then on. I found out that blood pressure medication was causing another health issue. Right at this moment, I cannot pinpoint it other than it was kidney related. This information was given to me by my father-n- law who is a Homeopathic doctor (now gone home with The Lord). At his suggestions, I stopped taking it. I might add that my weight was around 335 pounds. I began to research on the internet for people who had similar health issues as mine. The bottom line was that I changed from a meat eater to vegetarian. Then dropped weight, 117 lbs over the next 2 to 3 years by eating a plant-based diet of fruit and vegetables. By eating my fiber and reducing processed foods. Replacing them with real food. I was in a lifestyle change for the better. After visiting the doctor for a checkup, he found the weight loss fantastic and the high blood pressure was gone along with diabetes. He said I don't know what you are doing but keep on doing it. As I read "The China Study" I found many of my personal researching was similar to the content of the book. This made me glad. The part that made me sad was just how bad the system is. The system of whom Americans for years and years have depended on. Government and food industries. Nutritional "research" that we trusted now finds large gaping holes of distrust. Industrial giants whose motive is to destroy from within. I cannot say enough about this book. Everyone owes it to themselves to read this book. Read it with an open mind. it will change your life. See my GoodReads on other books that I read and have reviews on. The China Study influenced a lot of my gardening methods, too!
