...fruits with seeds shall be your food. Yes this truth (command) was given to the first man, Adam. Guess how long did Adam lived and at what age was his first born child? You know the reason for human longevity and vitality degrading ......
Fresh fruit is also very important. Fruit is loaded with natural sugar.
Fructose is needed by the body. Fruit also contains potassium, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Fresh vegetables also supply the body with important vitamins plus beta carotene, minerals and anti-oxidants and some proteins. The most important vegetables are the dark green ones because dark green is chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is magnesium to the body and in this form, the body can use 100% of the magnesium. Plus, dark green vegetables are loaded with calcium and in this form the body can also use 100% of the calcium. Magnesium and calcium are as important to the body as oxygen, water, protein and amino acids. If our bodies don’t get enough magnesium and calcium in the right form, then our bodies are forced to borrow them from the bones where blood cells are made. Nobody wants soft or weak bones. Everyone knows most animals eat dark green plants. Even dogs and cats eat grass for the chlorophyll.
I suggest you take a good multivitamin/mineral supplement every day to make up for the vitamins and minerals that may be lacking in your food because of the soil. When food grows, it pulls the minerals out of the soil. If the minerals are not put back into the soil before the next planting, the food growing will be lacking minerals and vitamins. We have no way of knowing this unless we buy our food from a local farmer who uses animal fertilizer on his soil. You can tell it is animal fertilizer because of the smell. Fertilizer is very important to a farmer. That’s why farmers have different animals. Each animal has a different mineral content in its fertilizer. A farmer would mix cow, chicken, pig and/or horse manure for the soil to maintain the proper minerals for the food being grown.
If the pH of the soil became too acid, the farmer would add a lime or Epsom salts to the soil. If the soil became too alkaline, he would add sulfur to the soil.
(pH = property of Hydrogen)
pH is a measurement of how acid or alkaline (not acid) something is.
7.0 on the pH scale is neutral – not acid, not alkaline (zero).
Less than 7.0 is acid.
Greater than 7.0 is alkaline.
Acid - Neutral- Alkaline
6.0(more acidic than 6.5)....6.5(less acidic)....7.0(Neutral,water)...(human blood is pH 7.34)....7.5(less alkaline)....8.0(more alkaline than 7.5).. etc.
Just as farmers have to maintain a certain pH of the soil for plants to grow, our bodies must maintain a pH of 7.3 to 7.4 to stay healthy. Cancer grows and lives in an acid condition. To maintain a pH of 7.3 to 7.4, we need to eat a balance of different foods and beware of what we drink. Most fruits and vegetables are alkaline, whereas meats and fruits are acid. When it comes to beverages, we are really in trouble. Let’s look at soda pop. It’s full of little bubbles that are Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Carbon Dioxide is what exhale (breathe out) and it is acid. So when we drink a glass of soda pop, we are drinking thousands of exhales (CO2) that make the blood very acid. Our bodies get rid of acid pH through breathing out (exhaling). Other ways are through going to the bathroom (urinating), or by eating alkaline foods or drinking alkaline drinks. Otherwise, our body borrows important nutrients from our bones and liver to neutralize the acid when we don’t put back what we borrowed from the body. Then our body starts to fail and we call it sickness and disease.
People check swimming pools for pH and add a buffer to neutralize the pH. Our body does the same thing, so it is best if we eat a balance of acid and alkaline foods and drink beverages that also maintain this balance.
