This weeks bible verse :

Heb 12 : 4 [Niv] bible :  In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood .


Comment :  If you’re struggling with a problem, temptation , desire,  habit etc ! , it can seem overwhelming or unbearable, so remember what Christ went thru, it can greatly help you to bear up under whatever you are suffering .  If he could go through being tortured and crucified,  you and I can bear whatever we are facing .


 

 

 

 



 

 

About :

Greetings, as Christ would say , to the” Foundation of Nutrition” The Bible,  a health site by biblebill209@gmail.com .

This site is about using the bible as the anchor to eating” right” which science backs up .   For example, carbs [ grains / bread]   are the body’s main source of fuel a scientific fact, not protein or fat ,which the bible backs up Zech 9 : 17 [ Niv] bible .  It’s about getting your nutrients , vitamins , minerals from “food” not pills , which are essentially “unnecessary”  as science tells us .  I checked on the prevailing belief our soil is depleted and I found we still have some of the [ richest” class 1″ soil in the  whole world] in the Ca . valleys  were we get most of our produce etc! . Besides the body absorbs nutrients from  pills poorly .  

This site is simple, as Einstein said or alluded to ” Keep it simple ” nothing fancy .  Unlike all the health talk shows across the” whole country” who try to impress you with all kinds of complicated terminology like   C- reactor proteins , methilation ,etc !, but dismiss ,forget, or blow of ” basic simple nutritional principles” like the above point about carbs being the body’s main source of fuel.  And every one of them advocating misinformation like low to no carbs [ Paleo , Atkins ] , to people’s detriment,  Hos 4 : 6 [Niv] bible . unbelievable .

As a matter of fact this site is” so” simple even a 4th grader can understand it ,  see “the Doctrine of Signature” [ LOL] .

Think about this, we the [ U. S . ] consume more Vitamins and supplements , and health related pills than almost any country, yet we are one of the most” unhealthy” people in the world , hello ! .  So it’s about eating right, and if you do, you do “not” need pills , [ Vit, supps] and if you don’t eat right , [following this site]  it doesn’t matter that you take Vit and Supp, because, as I just stated ,the body absorbs nutrients from pills  [ I don’t care whose line of pills it is ]  very poorly . The only natural Vitamins are found in “food” not pills .

 

I try to get everyone to understand there are no bad foods except certain meats  [ unless you prepare them wrong ] ie ;  potatoes [deep fried ]  . There are no bad [  fruits /Veg , grains , whole dairy products ,]  but a variety.   Again ,the only foods  you” can’t”  eat  any  you wish too, are ,the  animal  [ meats] and certain [ seafood , fowl ]  etc ! . See  Lev  11 : all [ Niv] bible.

For example, there are 4″ original” food groups  1] grains  2] fruit/ veg  3 ] whole dairy  4]  meats , nuts , poultry , and to get all” 6″ essential nutrients common sense tells you to eat from all “4” to get all 6 nutrients . This is contrary to all the” nonsense” you hear today that food groups are bad for you , like [whole grains or whole dairy] . How could a food group be bad,? how could something ” whole” [ grains, dairy] be bad , it’s whoooooooooooooole , hello  !!!.  

 

This site is about helping people who are desperate, looking for answers to their failing health , who have tried all the latest diets [ Paleo , Atkins ]  etc!, but are still in bad health from listening to all the lies and misinformation ,which, think about this ,will destroy you Hos 4 : 6 [ Niv] bible .

I have no” agenda” ,no line of  “my” pills to sell , [vitamins, supplements , minerals,] no office to visit, as is the situation with the  overwhelming majority in the health and nutrition field , who are  just trying to get your money 1 Tim 6 : 10 [ Niv] bible . Kind of like the old west , when they would come around to your town set up a card table trying to sell their bottle of  snake oil,  to convince you it is the cure all to any ailment you may have . Again, as I stated at the top of this” about” section  , we consume more Vit / supps than most nations ,yet we are one of the most unhealthy people in the world !!!. Hello !!!.

 

Finally , it’s all about eating the way I’m espousing from all” 4″ food groups [organic] if you can  , lots of [ whole grains , fruit / veg ,] whole dairy ,” cutting out” the pig and eating” way less” red meat , drinking spring or well water [ so important ] and if you’re having a health problem [ an organ not functioning to 100%] find ” HERBS” for that organ , plain and simple .  At almost 60  I have no health problems.  I’m a laborer in construction and reguarly”out work” men half my age .  I also have a section about dogs which I feel really bad for ,[ because they can’t help themselves],  and anything related to health, [ humans or animals ].


As for My credentials or education or qualifications see Dan 1 : 17 [Niv] bible  . Since God is no respecter of persons Ac 10 : 34 , as corny as it may sound to you , if you spend time sincerely praying and ask for understanding , Pr 2 : 3 [Niv]  bible he will do the same for you as those “four” men .

Well I’m at it , just because you have degrees or are a Dr.  doesn’t mean you know what your talking about  Mk 5 : 26 , or because you don’t,  doesn’t mean you can’t have the proper knowledge or understanding .  See  Ac 4 : 13 ,   Jn 7 : 15  [Niv] bible . Think about it .

Oh , and as for my sentence structure , grammar , correctness etc! so what, I ‘ll get better ,what’s important is the content or understanding , that’s self evident. Look at all the most professional sites, their grammatically perfect etc ! but they don’t have the proper understanding , truth , nor reasoning ability’s concerning basic nutrition  Isa 44 : 17-19 .
Reminds me of the saying  “Don’t major on the minor and minor on the major  ” Unbelievable .

Smile and say Cheese :

The Surprising Health Benefits of Cheese

Cheese lovers everywhere cheer.

It’s easy to lump in cheese with cake, bread, and other waistline offenders. Not so fast, though: Although some dairy products might pack on pounds, many cheeses are actually good for you in moderation, as part of a balanced diet. (Read: This isn’t permission to eat a wedge of cheese for lunch, with a chaser of cheesecake.) Here are a few tasty morsels of information from nutritionist Karen Ansel, R.D.N., coauthor of Healthy in a Hurry: Simple, Wholesome Recipes for Every Meal of the Day; her insights will help you indulge in all the right ways.

Cheese can help you stay slim.

“Cheese may help you stay slim thanks to a substance called butyrate, found in many cheeses,” says Ansel. Gruyère, blue, and Gouda, Parmesan, and cheddar all have high amounts. “Research suggests that it may help boost metabolism. These cheeses also encourage the bacteria in our gut to make even more butyrate, so it’s a double win.”

Cheese may help prevent cancer.

This news is easy to digest: “One study found that the butyrate in cheese can protect against colon cancer by nourishing the cells of your colon,” says Ansel, “and by reducing that inflammation that can damage the colon over time.”

Cheese is whey good for building muscle.

“Protein-packed cheese is a smart snack for building muscle,” Ansel says. Protein is made of amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscle tissue. “For the best protein boost, try ricotta cheese,” says Ansel. “It’s one of the single best sources of whey protein, which is especially advantageous for muscle building. And it tastes a lot better than a gritty protein powder.”

Cheese is good for your bones.

A strong case for Parmesan and cheddar: “Since it’s made from milk, cheese is packed with calcium to help keep your bones strong,” Ansel says. “Snacking on just one ounce of Parmesan gives you 336 milligrams of calcium, and the same amount of cheddar offers 216 milligrams.” That’s a good portion of the day’s needs: Most adult men require 1,000 milligrams of calcium daily.

Cheese is good for your teeth, too.

Chew on this: “Eating cheese can keep your teeth healthier thanks to calcium and phosphorus,” Ansel says. “These two minerals fight the lactic acid that’s naturally present in our mouths and prevent it from breaking down tooth enamel.” You need that enamel to chew food without damage to the teeth, as well as to prevent cavities and erosion.

Cheese could ward off diabetes.

Go on, upgrade from hamburger to cheeseburger. Those same butyrate-dense cheeses may help protect against type 2 diabetes. “Although research in this area is just starting to emerge, a study in the journal Diabetes found that mice that ate chow containing added butyrate had insulin levels that were 50 percent lower than mice who ate the regular kind. Experts suspect that butyrate may help human bodies use insulin more effectively too, in its managing of blood-sugar levels.”

Cheese is a healthy complement to your meal.

Here’s the skinny: There are many cheeses that are light in both fat and calories that are an excellent addition to your meal. “If you’re trying to cut fat and calories, stick with feta. It’s the skinniest cheese around, with only 6 grams of fat and 70 calories per ounce,” says Ansel. (We like putting it on top of our noontime spinach salads. “Mozzarella is the next best thing to feta, with only 85 calories and 6 grams of fat per ounce,” she adds. Pair it with tangy roasted peppers in a salad, or Caprese-style with basil and tomatoes. Ansel’s third pick is Swiss cheese: “It boasts only 106 calories and 8 grams of fat per ounce. Try shredding it into an omelet with asparagus or spinach.”

Even the lactose-intolerant can eat certain cheeses.

If lactose does a number on your stomach, you can still eat certain cheeses. “When natural cheeses including Parmesan, cheddar, Gouda, Swiss, mozzarella, and Brie are made, the manufacturing and aging processes remove almost all of the lactose,” says Ansel. Try just a bit: “One ounce of these cheeses contains less than a gram of lactose, compared with the 12 grams you’d get from a glass of milk.”

It’s the best comfort food. No debate.

“Everybody needs comfort foods now and then,” Ansel says. “So if you’re going to reach for one, go for cheese, which has some big nutrition benefits compared with a pile of cookies or chips. But when you do, be sure to stick with a couple of small cubes and not a huge hunk of it. Those calories can add up quickly too.”

“7” Super Bible Foods :

The 7 “Super Foods” of the Bible

from Beliefnet.com Health

Trying to eat healthy? Start by opening your Bible to Deuteronomy 8:8, where the Israelites are promised “a good land…, a land of wheat and barley, of vines, figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey.” The ancients might not have known the word “antioxidant,” but they were onto something with this list of bible foods. Explore this gallery to find out exactly how on-target they were with these “super foods.”

Bible Food #1 – Wheat

This grain, which is found in everything from bread to pasta to cakes, is healthier when it is refined as little as possible. Whole-wheat products (those that are certified 100% whole wheat) contain 30 percent of your recommended daily fiber intake, as well as high levels of manganese and magnesium. A diet rich in whole grains is also thought to increase your energy level and lower your risk of type-2 diabetes, gallstones, and other health issues.

Bible Food #2 – Barley

Another whole grain, barley can be found in breads and cereals, as well as in hearty winter soups. High in fiber, barley is good for intestinal health and can lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of colon cancer and type-2 diabetes if eaten regularly. Barley also contains trace amounts of copper, which have been shown to help reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Bible Food #3 – Grapes

Everyone knows that grape juice and red wine are tasty—but healthy? Grapes contain nutritional compounds called flavonoids, which are believed to reduce your risk of blood clots and protect your body from damage by the “free radicals” found in LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol. Rich in antioxidants, grapes may provide protection against cardiovascular disease, particularly in women.

Bible Food #4 – Figs

These sweet fruits, eaten either dried or fresh, are high in potassium, a mineral that helps control blood pressure. They are also high in dietary fiber, which may help you lose weight, and they are a fruit source of calcium, which can help preserve bone density. Fig leaves, which are not typically eaten but can be made into an extract, are thought to help lower insulin levels in diabetics.

Bible Food #5 – Pomegranate

These strange-looking seed fruits are back in vogue as health-giving super-foods, particularly in juice form. The fruits are rich in antioxidants, which prevent LDL cholesterol from doing its damage, and it helps prevent blood clots by keeping blood platelets from clumping together. Pomegranates may also help reduce the risk of breast cancer and lessen the symptoms of arthritis.

Bible Food #6 – Olive Oil

Olives, and the extra-virgin oil that is made from a single pressing of the fruit, contain many of the antioxidants that are thought to protect against the oxidation of LDL cholesterol compounds. They also are high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are called “the healing fats” because they lower the effects of “bad” cholesterol while raising “good” cholesterol levels. High in vitamin E, olive oil also is thought to protect against colon cancer, and it is helpful in fighting gastritis and other stomach ailments.

Bible Food #7 – Honey

Raw honey, in addition to being a natural sweetener, is replete with antioxidants and is considered to be an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal substance. It is thought to have tumor-fighting properties, and may help prevent colon cancer. The daily consumption of a spoonful of honey is said to increase antioxidant levels in the blood, and is the healthiest sweetener for type-2 diabetics. Honey also may have wound-healing and muscle-regenerating properties.

The” Perfect” food :

Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

  1]  Egg  :    an oval or round object laid by a female bird, reptile, fish, or invertebrate, usually containing a developing embryo. The eggs of birds are enclosed in a chalky shell, while those of reptiles are in a leathery membrane

Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years.[1] Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes. The most popular choice for egg consumption are chicken eggs. Other popular choices for egg consumption are duck, quail, roe, and caviar.

 

Top 10 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs

Young Woman in a Yellow Shirt, Holding an EggEggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.”They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.Here are 10 health benefits of eggs that have been confirmed in human studies.

1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious

Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.

A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.

A single large boiled egg contains (1):

  • Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 5% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
  • Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
  • Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.

This is coming with 77 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.

Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health.

Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

If you can get your hands on pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, then these are even better. They have more Omega-3s and are much higher in Vitamin A and E (2, 3).

Bottom Line: Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier.

2. Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol

Egg

It is true that eggs are high in cholesterol.

In fact, a single egg contains 212 mg, which is over half of the recommended daily intake of 300 mg.

However… it’s important to keep in mind that cholesterol in the diet doesn’t necessarily raise cholesterol in the blood (4, 5).

The liver actually produces large amounts of cholesterol every single day. When we eat more eggs, the liver just produces less cholesterol instead, so it evens out (6, 7).

The response to egg consumption varies between individual (8):

  • In 70% of people, eggs don’t raise cholesterol at all.
  • In the other 30% (termed “hyper responders”), eggs can mildly raise Total and LDL cholesterol.

However, as I will outline later in the article, the situation is a bit more complicated than that and these changes are actually beneficial.

(Exceptions… people with genetic disorders like familial hypercholesterolemia or a gene type called ApoE4 may want to minimize or avoid eggs.).

Bottom Line: Eggs are high in cholesterol, but eating eggs does not have adverse effects on cholesterol in the blood for the majority of people.

3. Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol

HDL stands for High Density Lipoprotein. It is often known as the “good” cholesterol (9).

People who have higher levels of HDL usually have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and various health problems (10, 11, 12, 13).

Eating eggs is a great way to increase HDL.

In one study, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels by 10% (14, 15, 16).

Bottom Line: Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

4. Eggs Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of

Choline is a nutrient that most people don’t even know exists.

Yet, it is an incredibly important substance and is often grouped with the B vitamins.

Choline is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions (17).

Dietary surveys have shown that about 90% of people in the U.S. are getting less than the recommended amount of choline (18).

Whole eggs are an excellent source of choline. A single egg contains more than 100 mg of this very important nutrient.

Bottom Line: Eggs are among the best dietary sources of choline, a nutrient that is incredibly important but most people aren’t getting enough of.

5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Chicken and Egg, Smaller

LDL cholesterol is generally known as the “bad” cholesterol.

It is well known that having high levels of LDL is linked to an increased risk of heart disease (19, 20).

But what many people don’t realize is that there are subtypes of LDL that have to do with the size of the particles.

There are small, dense LDL particles and then there are large LDL particles.

Many studies have shown that people who have predominantly small, dense LDL particles have a higher risk of heart disease than people who have mostly large LDL particles (21, 22, 23).

Even if eggs tend to mildly raise LDL cholesterol in some people, studies show that the particles change from small, dense to large LDL… which is a good thing (24, 25).

Bottom Line: Egg consumption appears to change the pattern of LDL particles from small, dense LDL (bad) to large LDL, which is linked to a reduced heart disease risk.

6. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health

Eye on White Background

One of the consequences of aging is that eyesight tends to get worse.

There are several nutrients that help counteract some of the degenerative processes that can affect our eyes.

Two of these are called Lutein and Zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that tend to build up in the retina of the eye (26, 27).

Studies show that consuming adequate amounts of these nutrients can significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, two very common eye disorders (28, 29, 30).

Egg yolks actually contain large amounts of both Lutein and Zeaxanthin.

In one controlled trial, eating just 1.3 egg yolks per day for 4.5 weeks increased blood levels of Lutein by 28-50% and Zeaxanthin by 114-142% (31).

Eggs are also high in Vitamin A, which deserves another mention here. Vitamin A deficiency is the most common cause of blindness in the world (32).

Bottom Line: The antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin are very important for eye health and can help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Eggs are high in both of them.

7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well

Of course, it doesn’t just matter what we eat… it also matters what the foods that we eat, ate.

Young Man Holding a Chicken and Eggs

In this regard, not all eggs are created equal. Their nutrient composition varies depending on how the hens were fed and raised.

Eggs from hens that are raised on pasture and/or fed Omega-3 enriched feeds tend to be much higher in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids are known to reduce blood levels of triglycerides, a well known risk factor for heart disease (33, 34).

Studies show that consuming Omega-3 enriched eggs is a very effective way to reduce triglycerides in the blood. In one of the studies, just 5 omega-3 enriched eggs per week for 3 weeks reduced triglycerides by 16-18% (35, 36).

Bottom Line: Omega-3 enriched and pastured eggs contain significant amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating these types of eggs is an effective way to reduce blood triglycerides.

8. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios

Proteins are the main building blocks of the human body.

They’re used to make all sorts of tissues and molecules that serve both structural and functional purposes.

Getting enough protein in the diet is very important and studies show that currently recommended amounts may be too low.

Well… eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams.

Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them.

Eating adequate protein can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health… to name a few (37, 38, 39, 40).

Bottom Line: Eggs are fairly high in quality animal protein and contain all the essential amino acids that humans need.

9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke

Two Eggs, Broken and Whole

For many decades, eggs have been unfairly demonized.

It has been claimed that because of the cholesterol in them, they must be bad for the heart.

Many studies published in recent years have examined the relationship between egg consumption and the risk of heart disease.

In one review of 17 studies with a total of 263,938 participants, no association was found between egg consumption and heart disease or stroke (41).

Many other studies have led to the same conclusion (42, 43).

However… some studies have found that people with diabetes who eat eggs have an increased risk of heart disease (44).

Whether the eggs are actually causing the increased risk isn’t known, because these types of studies can only show statistical association. They can not prove that eggs caused anything.

It is possible that diabetics who eat eggs are less health conscious, on average.

On a low-carb diet, which is by far the best diet for diabetics, eating eggs leads to improvements in risk factors for heart disease (45, 46).

Bottom Line: Many studies have looked at egg consumption and the risk of heart disease and found no association. However, some studies have found an increased risk in people with type 2 diabetes.

10. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

A Bowl Full of Brown Eggs

Eggs are incredibly fulfilling.

They are a high protein food… but protein is by far the most fulfilling macronutrient (47).

Eggs score high on a scale called the Satiety Index, which measures the ability of foods to induce feelings of fullness and reduce subsequent calorie intake (48).

In one study of 30 overweight women, eating eggs instead of bagels for breakfast increased feelings of fullness and made them automatically eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours (49).

In another study, replacing a bagel breakfast with an egg breakfast caused significant weight loss over a period of 8 weeks (50).

Take Home Message

The studies clearly show that eating up to 3 whole eggs per day is perfectly safe.

There is no evidence that going beyond that is harmful, it is just “uncharted territory” as it hasn’t been studied.

I personally eat about 3-6 whole eggs per day and my health has never been better.

Really… eggs are pretty much nature’s perfect food.

On top of everything else, they are also cheap, easy to prepare, go with almost any food and taste awesome.

[Bible verse about eggs]

Luke 11:12  (NIV]12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?

Thoughts :

Fasting :

Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast (dry fasting) is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period, usually a period of 24 hours, or a number of days.

Points to remember :

1] Fasting [ cleansing] from toxins starts from the top down,  that’s why you may get a headache.  If the headache gets “severe” stop the fast .
2] Don’t fast if on medications .

3] Don’t exercise intensely during a fast .
4] Don’t eat foods that take longer to digest like red meat[ right after] breaking the fast . Go with fruits/ veg 1st
5] Don’t fast if you have serious health problems . Eat right for like a year then start fasting .
6] Don’t fast too much,  absolute fast [ no food or water]  no more than 3 days consecutively  . Est 4 : 16 [Niv] bible .

       Thoughts :

  1. The truest fast which is most biblical is no food or water for a 24 hr period  or longer  Est 4 : 15, 16 , Acts 9 : 9 , Ez 10 : 6 , Ex 34 : 28 [ Niv] bible usually evening to evening or sunset to sunset  .  
  2. You can start out fasting like 8 hrs then say 16 then 24 no food or water
  3. It’s great to fast 1 day a month to clean out toxins and help the bowels catch up .
  4. You will probable move your bowels at least one time during fasts of one full day 24 hrs,  or longer , which is great,  that means your bowels are catching up to what you have digested .
  5. Do” not” try Moses’s fast Ex 34 : 28 that was supernatural .
  6. Fasting without water is “way harder” because the body is made up of like 65% water .
  7.  In general you can go only about 5  to 7 days without a drop of water before death , some people can go longer,  everyone is different .
  8. You can go roughly  “weeks” without food depending on how much body fat one has, it can vary greatly
  9.  A burlesque on fasting is eating just certain foods , ie ; vegetables only .

    Be careful of juice fasting  frequently for long periods its way overrated and can ruin one’s health . I ran into a friend who knew one of my best friends , and he said that he told him he ruined his health juice fasting .

 

The “Abominable” food :

13 reasons why you shouldn’t consume Pork as it might be harmful to your health

Next time you think of consuming Pork consider these reasons why you shouldn’t be eating that as it might be very harmful to your health

1) A pig is a real garbage gut. It will eat anything including urine, excrement, dirt, decaying animal flesh, maggots, or decaying vegetables. They will even eat the cancerous growths off other pigs or animals.

2) The meat and fat of a pig absorbs toxins like a sponge. Their meat can be 30 times more toxic than beef or venison.

3) When eating beef or venison, it takes 8 to 9 hours to digest the meat so what little toxins are in the meat are slowly put into our system and can be filtered by the liver. But when pork is eaten, it takes only 4 hours to digest the meat. We thus get a much higher level of toxins within a shorter time.

4) Unlike other mammals, a pig does not sweat or perspire. Perspiration is a means by which toxins are removed from the body. Since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its body and in the meat.

5) Pigs and swine are so poisonous that you can hardly kill them with strychnine or other poisons.

6) Farmers will often pen up pigs within a rattlesnake nest because the pigs will eat the snakes, and if bitten they will not be harmed by the venom.

7) When a pig is butchered, worms and insects take to its flesh sooner and faster than to other animal’s flesh. In a few days the swine flesh is full of worms.

Swine and pigs have over a dozen parasites within them, such as tapeworms, flukes, worms, and trichinae. There is no safe temperature at which pork can be cooked to ensure that all these parasites, their cysts, and eggs will be killed.

9) Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. A 3 oz T bone steak contains 8.5 grams of fat; a 3 oz pork chop contains 18 grams of fat. A 3 oz beef rib has 11.1 grams of fat; a 3 oz pork spare rib has 23.2 grams of fat.

10) Cows have a complex digestive system, having four stomachs. It thus takes over 24 hours to digest their vegetarian diet causing its food to be purified of toxins. In contrast, the swine’s one stomach takes only about 4 hours to digest its foul diet, turning its toxic food into flesh.

11) The swine carries about 30 diseases which can be easily passed to humans. This is why God commanded that we are not even to touch their carcase (Leviticus 11:8).

12) The trichinae worm of the swine is microscopically small, and once ingested can lodge itself in our intestines, muscles, spinal cord or the brain. This results in the disease trichinosis. The symptoms are sometimes lacking, but when present they are mistaken for other diseases, such as typhoid, arthritis, rheumatism, gastritis, MS, meningitis, gall bladder trouble, or acute alcoholism.

13) The pig is so poisonous and filthy, that nature had to prepare him a sewer line or canal running down each leg with an outlet in the bottom of the foot. Out of this hole oozes pus and filth his body cannot pass into its system fast enough. Some of this pus gets into the meat of the pig.

The bible strongly condemns eating the pig  Isa 66 : 17 , Lev 11 : all  [Niv] bible .

This article is so unbelievable , that it leaves you slack jawed.

“Liquid Gold ” :

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, helping lower your risk of heart disease. It may even benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, and therefore potentially lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. Good-quality olive oil contains important vitamins and nutrients and is loaded with antioxidants.

 

1. Olive Oil is Rich in Healthy Monounsaturated Fats

Olive oil is the natural oil extracted from olives, the fatty fruit of the olive tree.

About 24% of the oil is saturated fats and omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids (1).

But the predominant (73%) fatty acid in olive oil is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, which is extremely healthy.

Oleic acid is believed to help reduce inflammation, and may have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer (2, 3, 4, 5).

Monounsaturated fats in extra virgin olive oil are also quite resistant to high heat, making it a healthy choice for cooking.

Bottom Line: Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. This fatty acid is believed to have many beneficial effects, and is a healthy choice for cooking.

2. Olive Oil Contains Large Amounts of Antioxidants

Extra virgin olive oil is fairly nutritious.

Apart from its beneficial fatty acids, it contains modest amounts of Vitamins E and K.

But olive oil is also loaded with powerful antioxidants.

These antioxidants are biologically active and may help fight serious diseases (6, 7).

This includes antioxidants that can fight inflammation and help prevent the cholesterol in our blood from becoming oxidized, both crucial steps in the heart disease process (8, 9).

Bottom Line: Extra virgin olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, some of which have powerful biological effects.

3. Olive Oil Has Strong Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Chronic inflammation is thought to be among the leading drivers of many diseases.

This includes cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and even obesity.

Olive oil can reduce inflammation, which may be one of the main reasons for its health benefits.

The main anti-inflammatory effects are mediated by the antioxidants. Key among them is oleocanthal, which has been shown to work similarly to ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory drug (10).

Some scientists estimate that the oleocanthal in 50 ml (3.4 tablespoons) of extra virgin olive oil has a similar effectiveness as 10% of the adult dosage of ibuprofen (11).

There are also studies suggesting that oleic acid itself, the main fatty acid in olive oil, can reduce levels of important inflammatory markers like CRP (2, 3).

One study also showed that olive oil antioxidants can inhibit some genes and proteins that drive inflammation (12).

Bottom Line: Olive oil contains nutrients that can fight inflammation. This includes oleic acid, as well as the antioxidant oleocanthal.

4. Olive Oil May Help to Prevent Stroke

Stroke is caused by a disturbance of blood flow to the brain, either due to a blood clot or bleeding.

In developed nations, stroke is the second most common cause of death, right after heart disease (13).

Oil Dripping From Olives

The relationship between olive oil and the risk of stroke has been studied extensively.

A large review study that included over 841,000 subjects found that olive oil was the only source of monounsaturated fat associated with a reduced risk of stroke and heart disease (14).

These findings are supported by another large review study, this one with 140,000 participants. Researchers found that those who consumed olive oil were at a much lower risk of stroke (15).

Bottom Line: There are many large studies showing that people who consume olive oil have a much lower risk of developing stroke, the second biggest killer in developed countries.

5. Olive Oil is Protective Against Heart Disease

Heart disease is the most common cause of death in the world (16).

Observational studies conducted a few decades ago showed that heart disease was rare around the Mediterranean Sea.

This led to extensive research on the Mediterranean diet, which has now been shown to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease (17, 18).

Extra virgin olive oil is one of the key features of this diet, and protects against heart disease via numerous mechanisms (19).

It lowers inflammation, protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation, improves the function of the lining of the blood vessels, and may help prevent unwanted blood clotting (20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25).

Interestingly, it has also been shown to lower blood pressure, which is one of the strongest risk factors for heart disease and premature death. In one study, olive oil reduced the need for blood pressure meds by 48% (26, 27, 28).

The truth is that dozens, if not hundreds, of studies have shown that extra virgin olive oil has powerful benefits for the heart.

If you have heart disease, a family history of heart disease, or any other major risk factor, then you might want to consider including plenty of extra virgin olive oil in your diet.

Bottom Line: Olive oil has numerous benefits for heart health. It lowers blood pressure, protects LDL particles from oxidation, and has beneficial effects on many other risk factors.

6. Olive Oil Does Not Cause Weight Gain and Obesity

Eating fat does not make you fat, and olive oil is no exception.

Numerous studies have linked Mediterranean dietary patterns, rich in olive oil, with favorable effects on body weight (29, 30, 31).

In a 2.5 year study of more than 7000 Spanish college students, consuming a lot of olive oil was not linked to increased weight (32).

In other words, high intake of olive oil is not linked with weight gain or obesity in observational studies.

A 3-year study in 187 participants found that a diet rich in olive oil increased levels of antioxidants in the blood and caused weight loss (33).

Bottom Line: Consuming large amounts of olive oil does not appear to increase the likelihood of weight gain. It may even be beneficial for weight loss.

7. Olive Oil May Help Fight Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world.

One of its key features is a buildup of so-called beta amyloid plaques inside brain cells.

One study in mice showed that a substance in olive oil can help remove these plaques from brain cells (34).

Another study, this time in humans, showed that a Mediterranean diet with olive oil had beneficial effects on brain function (35).

Bottom Line: Some studies suggest that olive oil can help fight Alzheimer’s disease, but more research is needed to confirm this.

8. Olive Oil May Reduce The Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Olive oil appears to be highly protective against diabetes.

Several studies have linked olive oil to beneficial effects on blood sugar and insulin sensitivity (36, 37).

A randomized clinical trial of 418 non-diabetic participants recently confirmed the protective effects of olive oil (38).

In this study, a Mediterranean diet with olive oil reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by over 40%.

Bottom Line: Both observational studies and clinical trials suggest that olive oil, combined with a Mediterranean diet, can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

9. The Antioxidants in Olive Oil Have Anti-Cancer Properties

Cancer is one of the most common causes of death in the world.

People in Mediterranean countries have a lower risk of some cancers, and many researchers believe that olive oil may have something to do with it (39).

The antioxidants in olive oil can reduce oxidative damage due to free radicals, which is believed to be one of the leading drivers of cancer (40, 41).

Many test tube studies have shown that compounds in olive oil can help fight cancer cells (42, 43).

Whether olive oil can actually help to prevent cancer needs to be studied properly in humans.

Bottom Line: There is preliminary evidence that olive oil may help prevent cancer, but this needs to be studied properly.

10. Olive Oil Can Help Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by deformed and painful joints.

The exact cause is not well understood, but it involves the body’s immune system attacking normal cells by mistake.

Olive oil supplementation appears to improve inflammatory markers and reduce oxidative stress in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (44, 45).

Olive oil appears to be particularly beneficial when combined with fish oil, a source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

In one study, olive oil and fish oil significantly reduced joint pain, handgrip strength and morning stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis (46).

Bottom Line: Olive oil can help reduce joint pain and swelling from rheumatoid arthritis. The beneficial effects are greatly increased when combined with fish oil.

11. Olive Oil Has Anti-Bacterial Properties

Olive oil contains many nutrients that can inhibit or kill harmful bacteria (47).

One of these is Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that lives in the stomach and can cause stomach ulcers and stomach cancer.

Test tube studies have shown extra virgin olive oil to be effective against eight strains of this bacteria, three of which are resistant to antibiotics (48).

A study in humans showed that 30 grams of extra virgin olive oil can eliminate Helicobacter pylori infection in 10-40% of people in as little as 2 weeks (49).

Bottom Line: Extra virgin olive oil has anti-bacterial properties, and has been shown to be particularly effective against Helicobacter pylori, a type of bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers and stomach cancer.

Make Sure to Get The Right Type

The importance of getting the right kind of olive oil can not be overstated.

“Extra virgin olive oil” is the only type that contains all the antioxidants and bioactive compounds. It is the only olive oil we recommend.

But even so, there is a lot of fraud on the olive oil market, and many oils that have “extra virgin” on the label have been diluted with other refined oils.

Therefore, do some research and make sure that you’re actually getting real extra virgin olive oil.
