It’s crazy, the idea that what we consume can cause disease. Everyone knows disease is something you catch, the card fate has dealt you, something out of your control. Toxins can accumulate in the body because of what we eat and due to our environment, sure, but this wacky idea that they have anything to do with cancer or other disease is a slippery slope. Next you’ll hear that reducing your body’s toxic load and getting the right nutrition can actually prevent disease. It’s as if these wacky people think our body’s cells actually depend on nutrition to function properly. Then we’ll hear really crazy things like nutrition can actually rid the body of disease!
I know, it’s sad. The people making these claims are obviously just greedy individuals trying to sell us something, unlike our pharmaceutical companies that actually care about their customers.
It really is a dangerous path, this whole “natural remedies” idea. Can you imagine what would happen to our beloved industries if people quit eating fast food on a regular basis, and demanded truly organic produce, and did not need to take pills for headaches and other symptoms of poor health? Sure, a few million lives would be saved, but do you have any idea what this would do to the stock market?!?!?
Back in the day, Dr. Gerson, that wacky cancer curing doctor who did all that cancer research many intelligent red blooded Americans were smart enough to ignore, was the first to adamantly oppose the tobacco companies. He suggested that people should not smoke. Not long after that, the American Medical Journal lost its largest source of advertising revenue, the tobacco companies. Thankfully our drug companies stepped up to fill the void.
Take a cheap multivitamin every morning, start an aspirin regimen, see your conventional doctor for regular checkups, be sure to get your recommended dosage of radiation via x-rays and mammograms and whatever else they offer, eat only pasteurized and/or cooked dead food, and pray for good health. Oh, and exercise, but don’t overdo it! Remember to stop all exercise before it becomes uncomfortable. And if you are not completely healthy, maybe exercise isn’t a good idea. </sarcasm>
