Well fuck, I eat 9/10 of them on a regular basis, and have for over 20 years. Am I going to turn into a large, unsightly tumour?
 Quoting: NSF001


You will suffer from one of the following:

Diabetes
Cancer
Alzheimer's

High toxicity foods keep the immunity working on the removal of said toxins. This means cancers and other diseases are not taken care of by the body.

It is imperative you keep yourself healthy, otherwise don't be surprised when sickness, medical bills, pain and pre-mature death result.
 Quoting: Person445


I've often thought this but as we speak I'm sitting here with two cans of caffeinated juice in front of me. I am never I'll but dementia and cancer run in my family. I would like to eat more naturally but it's quite expensive. I suppose, I should probably prioritise.

In that video he mentions one of the things that I thought was always a royal pain with juicer too.....the cleanup after each use. gaah

That's another benefit of the Nutri-Bullet....super easy cleanup for each time you use it.

Sorry...not trying to sell it to anyone.
....but it is soooooo much easier, and better, than my juicer.....and about 3x less expensive to purchase in the first place. The thing kicks azz. Wuv it.

Not "you may", but specifically "you will", eh? That's a rather definitive, categorical statement.

The heat-generated (friction) with a centrifugal juicer kills about 80% of the micronutrients.
 Quoting: Person445


Total BS. While masticating juicers are always claimed as the Rolls Royce of juicers, they are far from the end all and be all. They may be a good tool to have if you have lots of time and money. For most people, these days, centrifugal juicers are a better fit and retain far healthier percentages of nutritional content than the numbers claimed by fanboys/girls of masticating machines.

I juice every morning, btw, and have a very mixed diet. Granted I don't eat even half the red meat I used to even a decade ago, I do still binge on that juicy steak or meatballs whenever the body craves.

Good thread, OP, good intentions, regardless.

I posted a video on page 1 of this thread that proved I was wrong on the subject of heat and juicing.

I'm all about learning. It's ok to be wrong and for people to disagree, but let's try our best to produce facts.

And yes the 3 diseases I posted are the "big 3" in my opinion and an unhealthy person in the 21st century will almost certainly suffer from one of these maladies, if something else doesn't kill them first.

1.Canned soup: This typically contains large amounts of processed salt, additives, MSG, and genetically engineered ingredients. Many companies also still use cans with bisphenol-A (BPA) in the lining. This plastic chemical has been identified as a potent endocrine disruptor, which means it mimics or interferes with your body's hormones and "disrupts" your endocrine system.

Fortunately, making home-made soup is easy to learn and ensures you know exactly what's in it. Jane offers three soup recipes in her Grist article.1 The Internet offers countless more. She also offers the following three tips:

1."Sign up for a CSA [local community supported agriculture] box and you'll have lots of crazy fruits and vegetables on hand to make soup.
2.Invest in a hand blender... we use ours every single day and it's so much easier to blend the soup right in the pot.
3.Make your own stock!"

2.Stock and Bouillon: Making stock is even easier than making soup. Instead of composting potato peels, onion skins, leek tops, eggplant stems and whatever else you happen to be left with, freeze them and make stock when you have enough to make a batch of vegetable stock.

3.Canned Beans: Just like soup, beans taste better and fresher, and are better for you, if you buy them dried and prepare them at home -- and again, this way you'll ensure your beans aren't laced with BPA. CookingManager.com offers all sorts of cooking tips, including how to prepare dried beans from scratch.3 Commercially prepared beans are also typically cooked at very high heat for short periods of time, which is not as good as cooking them longer at lower temperatures.

When foods are cooked at high temperatures, advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are produced. These compounds, which stimulate cells to produce proteins that cause inflammation, can be toxic to the body. AGEs are normally produced at a slow rate, but the rate increases when food is highly heated. There is also a substantial body of evidence supporting the notion that heat treatment of food alters, damages or destroys many nutrients in the food.

Think dried beans are too time consuming? Consider Jane's comment on the matter:

"In reality, it takes around three minutes to put the beans in some water, another minute to change that water during soaking, and then about five more minutes to put them on the stove. All the beans you'll eat all week in less than 10 minutes."

4.Hummus: Making your own hummus using fresh chickpeas takes just minutes once you get the hang of it, and gives you the freedom to season it to taste.

5.Cereal: Most cereal is a combination of high-fructose corn syrup and GM corn, and cereals marketed to children are the worst offenders. According to one 2008 study, one serving of cereal equated to 11 percent of the daily limit of added sugar for active boys aged 14 to 18 years old, and an astounding 92 percent of the daily sugar intake for sedentary girls aged 9 to 13.4

Reducing sugar intake should be on the top of your list regardless of whether you or your child is currently overweight, because it's been proven over and over that sugar increases insulin levels, which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, premature aging, and more.

While the featured article points out that you can make muesli in a matter of minutes, sans added sugars, I don't recommend eating grain carbs for breakfast, even if it doesn't have any added sugars. Instead, I recommend focusing on protein for breakfast, such as easily-digested whey protein.

Look for high quality whey protein derived from grass-fed, non-hormonally treated cows that's been minimally processed. This ensures it still contains beneficial immuno components, including immunoglobins, bovine serum albumin, and lactoferins, in addition to all the key amino acids and other beneficial nutrients you typically get from a high quality whey protein. Organic, pastured eggs are another excellent breakfast food, as long as it's consumed as close to raw as possible. Avoid scrambled eggs, as cooking destroys many of the beneficial nutrients.

6.Microwave popcorn: Perfluoroalkyls — chemicals used to keep grease from leaking through fast food wrappers — are being ingested by people through their food and showing up as contaminants in their blood. One common source of these hazardous chemicals is — you guessed it — microwave popcorn bags...

Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) has been linked to infertility and a slew of other health problems. For example, these "gender-bending" chemicals can disrupt your endocrine system and affect your sex hormones, but they've also been linked to thyroid disease, cancer, immune system problems, and increased LDL cholesterol levels.

Popping popcorn "from scratch" on the stove is simple, and gives you the option to salt and season to taste. I recommend using tasty and nutritious Himalayan Pink salt instead of processed table salt. Microwave popcorn typically contains harmful trans fats (although some brands will use the healthier palm oil rather than canola or soybean oil). If you choose to consume popcorn (it is not the healthiest food out there) you can at least use organic corn and a far healthier oil like organic virgin coconut oil and smoother it with raw grass-fed organic butter.

That's why these health freaks are all fucking crazy people. Let people live happy. Don't frighten people needlessly.

Most people don't know any better. Do you think living with diabetes, obesity, heart disease and the many other diseases that are directly caused from the intake of junk food is happiness? The U.S. is one of the most sickest, diseased countries in the world and you call that happiness? Keep handing over your money to the ones that poison you and make you think you're happy.

It takes about 3 minutes to read 1000 words aloud.

What you are asking is not possible. It is more complex than a sentence or two, which I already provided in the very post you are referencing.

I am done with your bullshit, it is YOU who are evading and that being the work of self-educating.

I have presented many things to you and yet you want it all boiled down to 2 sentences and if I don't, I'm a bullshitter.

The thing that bothers me about this list is the harm it can do. In event of a power outage, most people will have no way to cook. These Items will be the first you turn to.

keep some cans for an emergency.

Many people live on small spaces or apartments...or in the cities.

In a power outage you heat / cook over propane , open fire, camp stove or charcoal....or even sterno.
If not....cans can be eaten cold.....tuna, chili, beans, canned soups....etc etc.


...and it doesn't matter if it's OFF THE SHELF at the store or you canned it. You eat what you must.

Well fuck, I eat 9/10 of them on a regular basis, and have for over 20 years. Am I going to turn into a large, unsightly tumour?

Only one way to find out: pic please. We can judge whether you look like a tumor.
