Salmon: Wild vs. Farmed

Salmon: Wild vs. Farmed


Fish has always been the best source for the animal-based omega-3 fats EPA and DHA, but as levels of pollution have increased, this treasure of a food has become less and less viable as a primary source of healthful fats. However, there are still exceptions, and the key is to understand which types of fish are the least contaminated.

 

Remember, fish farms are the aquatic version of a confined animal feeding operation (CAFO), and just like land-based cattle and chicken farms, fish farms breed disease due to crowding too many fish together in a small space. They also produce toxic waste and fish of inferior quality. These fish are further contaminated by drugs and genetically engineered corn and soy meal feed, and in the case of salmon, synthetic astaxanthin (otherwise a powerful antioxidant in its natural form), which is made from petrochemicals that are not approved for human consumption.

Asparagus – Who knew?

Asparagus – Who knew?

This is from a friend:

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.

What happens to your body will inevitably affect your state of mind and your spirit will certainly become restless if you’re not physically well.

Is Your (Healthy) Food Making You Sick?

Is Your (Healthy) Food Making You Sick?

Even the seemingly “healthiest” organic, raw, anti-inflammatory superfoods like wild Alaskan salmon, kale, garlic, apple, broccoli or any other food can provoke “sensitivity” reactions.  Medical Research has shown that sensitivities to foods and food-chemicals can lead to a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems.  If food sensitivities are at the root of your health problems and you don’t address them, then no matter what else you do to get better, your health problems will remain.

Is Eating Out Eating Out You?

Is Eating Out Eating Out You?

Eating out may be eating out your stomach, your liver, your heart, and your lungs. Because of our busy schedules, many of us find ourselves eating out several times a week; some of us eat out almost every meal.

Restaurant food is some of the most processed food you can put in your mouth. The commercial fake food arrives in big-food company trucks (90 percent of all restaurants get virtually the same food) and is lovingly prepared using can openers and microwaves.
