Why is What You Eat So Important? 
By Chris Daino

So often I hear from various people that they don't want to change their diet, they are too old to change what they eat and besides disease is really hereditary anyway.

 

Is it?  I very often tell someone when they complain about the cost of healthy organic food, they they can spend more now or they can pay the doctor later.  Besides the pain, loss of income, and anxiety of that might be wrong when they get ill, they miss out on all the energy they could have right now.  

 

As an example of what a poor diet can do, may I present an article Diet of The Plague? What Went Wrong?

 

How does this work?

You have to understand that there are forty nutrients that cannot be made in the body. They are essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, and 10 amino acids. Collectively these forty nutrients are spoken of as the body's requirements. From these our bodies synthesize an estimated 10,000 different compounds essential to the maintenance of health. All the forty nutrients work together, therefore, the lack of any one might result in the underproduction of hundreds of these essential compounds. Probably no one nutrient is ever totally lacking from an otherwise adequate diet, but partial simultaneous deficiencies of many nutrients is common.


Your body needs these things every day to function. You have to start paying attention to what you eat, and make sure you take those vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids that are missing in your diet. 

 

Rather than have to deal with sickness and heroic measures to save your life (surgery, drugs, etc).  Isn't it a better idea to build health. 

 

Understanding what your body needs and providing it is your best Health Insurance.
