"Americans spend 23 billion dollars a year on Vitamins and Supplements." Are they
getting any real benefit? (National
institute of health 2006)
We know we are not eating well, which is why we are consuming so many vitamins
and supplements. The fact is that most of these vitamins are passing right through our
bodies. F ruits and vegetables
contain an unparalleled array of nutritional elements that offer numerous health benefits for our bodies. And, the
thousands of nutrients found in fruits and vegetables work together in ways that science is just beginning to
explore. It is not to late to start eating healthy now. The human body
can repair its self. So complex but so efficient. New skin, new hair, new stomach wall, new blood cells, and
chemical balance are all normal wonderful functions of our bodies. If we give our bodies the necessary materials
the body can use them to repair any damage that may have already occurred or is occurring.
"Our Health depends on our
nutrients. The more fruits and vegetables you eat the less likely you are to have a heart
attack"( Dr. Richard Dubois
president of the medical association, Atlanta)
The message is clear: we need more of the healthful whole food
nutrition of fruits and vegetables in our diets, every day. It's the one thing everyone agrees we can do to improve
our health and reduce our risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Food is not just for calories and energy. Food is for prevention. The scientific
literature has told us for a long, long time that fruits and vegetables are the most important fuel we can
put in our bodies to make a difference in terms of prevention and health.
How Do I Start Eating Healthy?
That is the question. You must first realize that eating healthy will make you
feel better, look better, and you will be healthier. You must understand and believe this. I am a cancer
survivor who has determined that given this second chance at life, I am going to do what I can to be
healthier. Hopefully you don't need cancer to convince yourself you need to live and eat healthier. How do you feel
when you overeat? Discomfort and pain? There is your proof that eating affects the way you feel. There are
three ways poison can get into your body.
1. what you put in your mouth.
2. what you breathe.
3. what you absorb through your skin.
What you eat is an every day decision. If you can just become aware of the things that are no good for you to eat
then you can instantly change for the better by not eating them. I recently discovered that my 6 year old son is
allergic to milk. He has had a chronic cough which was caused by milk. I have taken all dairy products out of his
diet and within a few days he was cured. I encourage you to look around this web site, read the articles, comment in the forums, and email us with new articles.
Please share with us your story so that we can all learn from each other. There is so much information out there
about what is good to eat and what is not. It can be contradictory and confusing. Let us find the truth and live

amino acids - those that our body cannot make, and non essential amino acids - those that our body can

lack in one or more essential amino acid are incomplete. Complete proteins come from sources such as
meat, eggs, cheese, dairy and soy. Incomplete proteins come mainly from vegetable more..
Is the Sun
Bad For You? Do you shun the sun? People
who wear sunscreen, live in northern climates or have darker skin may not receive optimal levels of
vitamin D, which is made following exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and may
also promote ovarian, breast, prostate, heart and colon health. Reider suggests 1,000 IU of vitamin D
daily for people who spend most of their time indoors and those who don't synthesize vitamin D easily,
such as darker- skinned individuals and the elderly. Vitamin D food sources include milk and fatty types
