Autumn Vegetable Pasta with Sage and Walnuts.

In our modern industrial society we live a highly unnatural lifestyle.  From the vegetables sprayed with pesticides, GMO's, the house cleaning products, makeup, toothpaste, hairspray, cell phones, microwaves, etc....  It is know wonder so many of us get sick.  Did you know that many of these large pharmaceutical companies also own pesticide manufacturing companies as well?  And that the pesticide companies produce GMO's.  In Europe, it is the law that they have to put GMO on the label if it contains GMO, even for animal food.  I can not believe that this is not a constitutional right.  To have the right to know what we are feeding our children and ourselves.

That is why it is so important to eat mostly whole organic plant based foods.  The National Cancer Institute is pursuing over forty studies in the area of nutrition that involves enzymes, fiber, fat, micronutrients, vitamins, and phytochemicals.  Many pharmaceutical companies are merging nutrient manufactures into their corporate structures.  With that being said,  the American pharmaceutical industry rules the way medicine is allowed to be practiced.  If a therapeutic substance or method is unpatentable, without profits to be made from a synthesized drug, it is usually ignored or suppressed.  Another problem with the system is that most medical doctors have had extremely poor education in the nutritional sciences.  That is why they barely ever speak about diet and if they do they may misinform you about what and what not to eat.

Environmental polluters have been releasing into the air, soil and water, many new cancer causing agents.  This creates new ways to suppress people's immunity and inhibit the enzymes necessary to our life processes.  There are at least 50 stressors that exist and which contribute to acute or chronic physical, mental, and emotional deterioration.  Incorrect cancer treatments have been used for over 50 years to attack the tumors without correcting the underlying causes that stimulate their development.

How does cancer get started in our bodies?  It is through carcinogens and or some other contributing factors that continuously are bombarding our bodies until our cellular genes are broken, our body's ever-weakening enzymatic, hormonal or other defense system are broken and then the cancerous growth is switched on.  This can come from malnourishing synthetic unnatural foods.  But it can also come from smoking, drinking to much alcohol, industrial toxins, overhead power lines, food additives, dental amalgam fillings, chronic physical or mental stress, industrial toxins, and on and on.

So what is the best way to combat all of this?  By eating a plant based diet.  Eating a rich, colorful blend of fruits and vegetables daily will increase your odds on beating down those degenerative diseases that are overwhelming our medical establishments.  And that is why you must try my Autumn Vegetable Pasta with Sage and Walnuts.
