Previously, our food was different, pure and without additives. The fresh vegetables were healthier, less sprayed or not sprayed. Most people had a vegetable garden, every day was eaten vegetables from the garden. The milk came straight from the cow, the chicken became the gender afternoon. The whole house smelled like homemade bread. People in the city went to small stores where the products were often bought directly from the farmer. The strawberries were only in the summer and they were so sweet. You ate the fruit and vegetables when it could be harvested.
Today we drive the car to the grocery store and pick up there for our groceries. We look only what we buy, as the advertising says it’s nice we believe it too. Our ready-made meals are put in the microwave, because we have no time to cook elaborate. Everywhere there are colors and flavors in. Many of the additions are even harmful. Throughout the year you can buy strawberries from any country in the world whatsoever. Everything is or glasshouse grown or just flown in a while. The choice is so huge that it is hard to choose.
The quality of our food going rapidly backwards, this is partly due to:
Exhausted long lands
About Fertilization with fertilizers (comes back into the groundwater)
In our lives sugar always played a big role, as a child you got porridge (with sugar), sweet (sugar), cake (with sugar) that delicious pancake with sugar. If you had fallen you got from mom something nice, you were comforted with sugar . During your monthly period you suddenly get cravings for chocolate. On TV or in the magazines takes it very often products that are packed with hidden sugars. Actually takes the whole food company to sugar. Whatever you frequently eat or drink there is sugar, even in bread.
The food industry tactics on the consumer to enter the market with light products. These companies took advantage of consumers who grew fatter by consuming all those sugary foods. We get less calories that’s a fact, and the companies argue that sweeteners are not dangerous (normal amount). If the advertising is believed to be suitable for losing weight. Unfortunately, the reality is less rosy.
Sweeteners are less harmless and can throw pretty confused our body with their sweet taste. Once you sweet taste signals are sent to our brains to inform them that sugar is coming. The commission brains to secrete extra insulin. But there came no sugar in your body, the extra insulin do not think it’s a false alarm, and can now do nothing. This extra insulin from the existing remove glucose from the blood, thus there will be a too low level of sugar in the blood. We experience it as ‘hunger’ and start shaking and trembling. We try to find something delicious. So consuming sweetener can lead to more tension and increased food intake, with all its consequences.
Sweeteners that we should not use
Aspartame (E 951) (NutraSweet, Canderel, Twin Know Hermesetas) is a product which does not recognize the body and can not handle properly. After consuming enters the body to work and starts with conversion of the ingested food. Arise substances which are very harmful and act like poison and affect the functioning of our bodies. Phenylalanine that this release affects serotonin. The production is greatly reduced and as a result you are going to feel down. Complaints by too much use of aspartame: insomnia, fatigue, abdominal pain, diarrhea, intestinal problems, headaches, depression, weakening our immune system
It is known that people with chronic conditions have an adverse effect on the use of aspartame.
Sucralose (E-955), is a chemical substance which is 600 times sweeter than sugar. 15 to 25 percent of the ingested sucralose remains behind in the body. This makes these syndromes can occur: decreased immune function, cardiac arrhythmias, skin rashes, headaches, liver and kidney damage, birth defects, cancer, damage in the DNA.
There are many other sweeteners that we can avoid. These include: Acesulfaan-K (E-950), cyclamate (E-952), saccharin (E-954), Acesulfame-K, thaumatin, Neohesperidine, Isomalt, Lactitol, Maltitol, Sorbitol, Xylitol.
Additives in foodstuffs
To everything there is to be as beautiful and radiant look are used more chemical additives. Our foods are often full of: preservatives, such as fragrances, colorings and flavorings. The food industry has only one purpose, which is maximizing revenue. All about just money, money and more money.
There is a whole list of artificial and chemical additives in our food which is better for our health to avoid this. I will mention a few:
Monosodium glutamate, which is a flavor enhancer. Often this is not described directly on the labels. The MSG is unhealthy for children and adults. Derivatives of MSG include: Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Yeast extracts, autolyzed proteins.
There is also often on the labels “natural flavor enhancers.” Which divide again in E numbers. Malicious E numbers are: E102, E104, E110, E122, E124, E129, E211, E621, E951, E962 . Additives that can be best avoided: BPA Bisphenol-A, Sodium Benzoate, polyacrylamides, 3-MCPD, genetically modified ingredients (GMO), Phosphoric acid in soft drinks
Especially processed foods for infants and children are packed with artificial additives. Bright colors indeed attract their attention. The sweeter, the better. It ensures that our children are much more hyperactive and have a reduced concentration. Children play outside less often sit before a computer or TV. They have at a young age are more likely to have obesity and diabetes II.
The reason for artificial additives
The food industry do artificial additives in foods so that they; less perishable, discolor slower and slower change of taste. It makes our food more attractive, and also count. Certainly children are very sensitive to that. The commercials do the rest.
