In today’s Irish Independent an article asks the question ‘Are your vitamins actually killing you?’ in which it tries to convince the reader that they shouldn’t be taking supplementary vitamins because all our nutrition should come from our food.
I agree wholeheartedly that all our nutrition should come from our food but as I’m sure the author of this ridiculous piece knows, the vitamins and minerals our bodies require to maintain a healthy lifestyle are at best minimal and in many cases absent completely from our food. We are led to believe that if we eat a certain quantity of vegetables, fruit, fish etc then we should be supremely healthy.
I left out meat because apparently meat is bad for us despite the human species surviving on it for millennia. (New York Times) Meat has never been unhealthy in its natural state. It simply becomes dangerous to your health when chemicals are fed and injected into the animals we then consume.
The same applies to vegetables. They are constantly sprayed with carcinogenic chemicals and other pesticides which do nothing for the plant except make it grow. The vitamins and minerals which are supposed to be part of the plant are further destroyed through irradiation leaving them nutritionally useless and quite frankly unfit for human consumption.
What about Genetically Modified Organisms? Does anyone really believe that these organisms can possibly be safe when numerous studies have shown the contrary? (See I-SIS, Seeds of Deception, and Relfe)
Cancer and other life threatening illnesses have been linked to GMO for well over a decade yet we are told that they are perfectly safe as the EU allow more and more of these lethal ‘foods’ into food chain and the environment where the damage to animal and plant life is never considered. Crops have been cross pollinated by insects who settle on GMO crops before moving onto conventional crops which are then contaminated by the GMO’s.
