A nutrition theory I'm working on, based on this verse from D&C 59. He starts off telling us to obey #God
and be #grateful
, then lists some of the #blessings
that follow from having #gratitude
and keeping the #Lord's
16 Verily I say, that inasmuch as ye do this, the #fulness of the earth is yours, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and that which climbeth upon the trees and walketh upon the earth;Extortion
17 Yea, and the #herb, and the #goodthings which come of the earth, whether for #food or for raiment, or for houses, or for barns, or for #orchards, or for #gardens, or for #vineyards;
18 Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the #season thereof, are made for the #benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;
19 Yea, for food and for raiment, for #taste and for #smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the #soul.
20 And it pleaseth God that he hath given all these things unto man; for unto this end were they made to be used, with #judgment, not to #excess, neither by #extortion.
is the key word here. I take it to mean, "not squeezing more out of a natural thing than you should".
Here's an example: #Feedlots
. Does it sound right for thousands of #cattle
to be corralled into a tiny space - not even able to move really, where they are fattened up to be slaughtered? All kinds of diseases can take hold- it's not "natural", not the way God intended. I wonder how healthy stressed out meat like that can be.
Or how about #chickens
in cages, never being allowed to roam, just so they can collect #eggs
. I wonder how healthy those eggs are.
. Can anyone explain the natural process whereby Crisco is created? no. because it isn't natural.
Or " #Milk
". Or should we say "milk product": #homogenization
is the process where they whip the milk to get rid of the lumps (of fat). #Pasteurization
is the process where they heat the milk to kill bacteria. If #raw
) milk is so dangerous, how on earth did civilization survive nearly 6,000 years without it? It's a hoax. Have a milk intolerance? I don't. Most people begin to have one around age 40. I think it's because pasteurization kills the good bacteria that helps digest the milk. After 40 years of drinking that nasty stuff, I bet your gut just cries "uncle!" and stops processing it.
Have a #skin
? One of my students had bad #eczema
. I asked him what kind of milk he drank- he didn't like milk. I said, "you want to get rid of your eczema?" "yeah." "Ok, you have to do what I say. Eat #yogurt
every day, and come back and see me in a week." A week later, he's all excited that his eczema has completely cleared up. My theory: yogurt contains some
of the bacteria that helps us #digest
/ break down the milk. See, homogenization makes the globs of #fat
so small that they can pass undigested through the walls of the intestine. I believe the body's #immune
system sees the undigested fat as a foreign invader and attacks. Since the fat settles in the bone joints and skin of the body, those places get inflamed as the body attacks the foreign entities. raw milk naturally contains the necessary #bacteria
to digest the milk. Not everyone can drink milk, sure, but if you could at one time, and can't now, try drinking raw milk, or adding yogurt to your diet.
But all this can be solved by eating "close to the ground" (unprocessed) and natural (not extorted) food.
Anyway, I could go on and on. I just found another extortion idea: Bread from "natural" yeast
. In her article, she says:
A key reason why wild #yeast is MUCH, MUCH BETTER is that during the rising process, it changes the #flour into a more nutritionally superior product. You see, #grains carry with them #anti-nutrients that PREVENT them from breaking down. Have you ever wondered why grains can be stored at room temperature without breaking down and going bad? They are built this way. They resist #decomposing, which is great for when you want to store grains for a long period. But it’s bad when you want to eat them.
Grains (and their flours) need to be broken down properly in order to fully provide us with all the nutrition they carry. Also, when you make #homemade #bread with wild yeast you can forget about any digestive discomfort, because there is none.
The inherent problem with today’s commercial yeast is that since it is ONLY the isolated active ingredient of yeast, not the full wild yeast itself, _it only rises bread without breaking down any of the phytic acid or anti-nutrients to aid with digestion. You get a quick rising bread with store bought yeast, but you don’t get the health benefits that are produced with wild yeast._ Wild yeast produces a slower rise, but you get a PERFECT loaf of bread, the way nature intended.
There it is again- we've extorted the rising agent of yeast, without including the ability to break down the #phytic
