Today many people are developing intestinal discomfort, allergies and just plan getting sick from consuming foods they love! There are a few reasons for this.
1. Industrialized production of food: Do you think that 7 billion humans on this planet is a good idea? Well, how in the hell can the World feed these people? The answer is mass production of food. However, this food is absolute garbage! Animals being fed antibiotics, kept in small pens, being beaten while they sleep and die in their own feces! Should I go further into the meats we eat? Okay I will chill out! Lets take a look at MILK. I love milk especially the RAW yellow tinted greatness I get from Pennsylvania, but we here in New Jersey drink pasteurized milk. Pasteurized is flashed heated to kill bacteria that may be lurking, to keep us safe! Really they are pasteurizing it to kill the manure, blood and puss that finds its way into the milk. Gross right? So, why would I drink RAW milk? It’s easy! The bacteria! Well, the good bacteria! I want the bacteria to keep my gut healthy. The healthier the gut the less disease and sickness I will experience. Now, my milk comes from a farm in Pennsylvania that is closely regulated to keep it’s bacteria ‘x’ parts per million. If he were to go over that, then BOOM he loses everything! Raw milk farmers keep their cows clean. No puss, no manure and no blood… just WHITE GOLD! Outside of the grossness of what could be in our milk, is what happens to it when it is pasteurized. Pasteurization denatures the Lactose molecule, which then can not be absorbed. It passes through the intestine and then, well you know what happens next. Now, because the practice of pasteurization isn’t going any where, there needs to be a solution. Kenneth Manzo of Manzopharma.com may have just solved a problem for millions of people. For the last ten years he has been working on a product called Lacto-Freedom. This patented probiotic can be ingested and then will thrive within the intestines for up to three months helping to breakdown and absorb the sugar Lactose. More research on this probiotic is being conducted by Celprogen.

2. Cesarean births: To keep this simple, as a baby passes through the stomach/mothers skin they receive bacteria, but this bacteria is not the kind they want! Vaginal births have a higher rate of healthy gut flora!
3. Antibiotics: Antibiotics are in our food. They are given to use by doctors to help cure infections and other sicknesses. This too has had an effect on our gut’s bacteria. This alone may be the cause of the rise in Allergies like peanuts. Fifteen years ago I never heard of someone worrying about if peanuts were in their food. Currently it’s labeled on food packaging and I hear more and more stories of children getting deathly ill at school from sharing a friend’s snack.
4. Plastics/BPA’s and other chemicals: Plastic is everywhere! We sit on it, we use plastic when eating, we drink from plastics and I am typing on plastic! When it is heated, worn or put under pressure, these chemicals can leak. Some of these wonderful (sarcasm) chemicals like Bispherol A (BPA), Phthalates, Vinyl Chloride, Dioxin and Styrene are human carcinogens. These effect the endocrine system, which regulates our hormones and that chain link goes to the next, to the next and to the next. Then all the sudden you’re at the dinner table and you get “leaky gut”. It’s been found that increased BPAs found within the blood are linked to increased intestinal inflammation. Also, could plastics also be linked to Autism? Plastic is everywhere and Autism is up 600% from 10 years ago! Makes you think doesn’t it?
It seems like the more and more we advance in technology/medicine, that we cure things that were incurable 100 years ago. However, now it seems like out advancement is also slowing the production of healthy human evolution. It’s going to be scary to see what ailments the future will hold for us.
