    Is all the processed foods damaging our organ?

    From birth some of us were given processed food, either in boxes, can or jar
    if you look back at in  history, there were not so many processes food,
    so can this be the cause of so many internal problems?

    You will not find many articles that say processed food will damage your health.  How is food preserved in cans and jars. Of course preservaties are added.  Processed food are anti-blocking in your intestines, since that is where your food is processed and absorbed into the blood streams.

    So, the additives are not good for you, that is the reason we purchase naural foods.   We don't know how long the intestines will be able to process the added preservatives. Of course if we go back to our ancestors, we know that they didn't have any process foods.

    Crackers, bread, cereal and everything you eat is a processed food.  We don't know what damage processed foods do to our body.  You might try and take various vitamins to further enhance your body's functioning.

    i think that this is one of the reasons for the increase in cancer and other diseases. maybe i'm wrong but i can't see all these chemicals used in processed food being good for a person's body.

    I truly think that it is...........

    Chickens, pigs, cattle.......etc are being fed growth hormones that rush them to market.........

    I can remember when there was NO fat on chicken, all pork was RED.

    "pork, the other white meat"..........IS a marketing term that reflects the manipulation of our meat............

    Fish were once 'caught'........not farmed.

    Why all the media attention on breast feeding, when it is Nature's way?   WHY?   Women expose their breast in an attempt to be "sexy", and it is widely accepted, but let a lady DARE to feed her young, and she is under attack!

    Yes. Processed food is not good for health. But unfortunately it is expensive to get organic food. So many of us rely on processed food. Gone are the days when we can plant our own food and eat them.

    Yes, unfortunately. Most of the processed food is non-natural that means... It's not totally real food. Try ingesting only real foods. Real natural fruits and vegetables. Biological diets rule:)
    Avoid refined sugar, it is much better use natural sugar most of the time.

    I think it is one of the main cause behind many diseases which were not present few decades back. Processed food is often low in nutrients and high in calories.

    Not only is processed food extremely damaging to our organs, digestive system, and brain function, but it is being promoted by the US government and health organizations.

    Example: cheerios with the heart healthy symbol from the AHA. Have you read the ingredients on it? It causes quite the opposite effect of a healthy heart.

    I have a post about sucrose (high fructose corn syrup), where through my own research I discovered an exact correlation between addition of fructose to our diet and obesity skyrocketing. Have a look for yourself at http://midsectionfat.org/what-is-sucrose

    Yes & No - Processed foods are not good when overly used but occasionally they're not a problem.  My wife's aunt lived to be 107 years old and ate plenty of proceeded foods during her time.  Just not habitually like most people I know, including me, do all the time.

    Everything in Moderation and avoiding Stressful situations & people who tear at your Well-Being are two key's to living a healthy happy life.
