Why Take Nutritional Supplements?
There are people who hold desirable positions of public trust in the field of
nutrition, positions of great responsibilities, including many physicians who
give out misleading information about vitamins and nutrition in general.
These people tell the general public that the average grocery store contains
all the nourishing foods necessary to maintain abundant health. Nothing could be
further from the truth. Perhaps you have run into the individual who scoffs at
you for your belief in vitamin therapy.
Just remember there are scoffers in any field of endeavor and that their
scoffing is merely an attempt to cover up their ignorance pertaining to
nutritional requirements of the human body.
Realize that the link between malnutrition and disease is gaining recognition
Alley of "IF's"
Now, for the alley of "IF's", and why we need nutritional
supplements in our diet today:
- IF our genetics were flawless--which they are not.
- IF you could teach people to eat to satisfy the body's needs and
not their appetites--which you cannot.
- IF we could raise our own food on healthy soil and eat it fresh
--- which we cannot.
- IF we could have our own cows or goats, raise our own meat,
poultry, and fish --- which we cannot.
- IF the foods were not harvested green and immature --- but they
- IF storage did not produce deficiencies in vitamins--but it does.
- IF we lived in a stress-free world--but we don't.
- IF chemical fertilizers were not used on our soil-but they are.
- IF refinement, processing, enrichment, synthetic and substitution
were not a reality in our food --- but it is.
- IF the animals we eat were fed a natural diet--which they are
- IF insecticides did not penetrate every cell of our food --- but
- IF animals were not fed hormones to increase their weight to make
an earlier market date --- which they are.
- IF most of our grains were not refined into dried cereals--which
- IF eating white sugar had any nutritional value--which it does
- IF refined white flour was used for wallpaper paste instead of
bakery goods--- which it is not.
- IF our foods were not overcooked--but they are.
- IF deep-fried fats were not found in almost every restaurant food
--- but they are.
- IF people would live fully by the laws of nature --- which they do
- IF our air and water were pollution free--which they are not.
THEN YOU WOULD NOT NEED VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS!
