Fruits & Veges Make Us Fat!?
Fruits and vegetables are making us fat! That’s the new buzz according to YAHOO NEWS and Frederick vom Saal, Ph.D., curators’ professor of biological sciences at the University of Missouri. Of course fruits are sugar and they need to be strategically eaten at certain times of the day for best results, but I am talking the chemical that so called ‘protects’ the apple. These chemicals are known as ‘Obsesogens’ that are present in or on our food that wasn’t 50+ years ago. These Obsesogens are pesticides and the chemicals found in plastic drinking/cooking devices. It is believed that these chemicals are taking over our natural endocrine system functions. For those who are not familiar with the endocrine system, it’s the system that regulates hormones. If your tall and skinny, short and fat or horny all the time (I had to throw that in there) it’s due to your endocrine system.
Obsesogens have an effect in the way estrogen does. For the men out there… we don’t want an estrogen hormone floating around in our bodies. For men this will lead to more femanine features (more fat, breast development, etc.). For women it could lead do extreme health problems in the way of stroke, breast cancer, heart disease and more!
What Obsesogens do is make us put on the weight. This may be the explanation to why you are heavy and not loosing any weight even though you eat ‘clean’ and exercise regularly.
So what can you do? Well, the most obviouos is to stop eating the chemicals. It is suggested to go organic, which I find funny. Isn’t organic 100% natural occurring? It amazes me that we came this far into a situation and now we have an option to go back to the way it was…organic. Well, if you go back to your primitive ways of eating what nature provides you will see a dramatic decrease in your pesticide levels within the body. Research where you get your food! Some farms introduce insects into a crop that will eat the other bugs that are destroying the food. This is farming at it’s best- absolutely no chemicals!
Have you ever microwaved plastic? It said “microwaveable?” Well stop it! No plastic should be subject to increases temperatures- NONE! Heat breaks down the chemical make-up of a plastic and draws it into your drink or food. Always use glass….porcelean would be best.
- Don’t place plastic wrap over a bowl and microwave it
- Don’t use a weight watchers, Jenny Craig etc. dinner bowl (plastic bottom/plastic wrap top). Take food out and microwave in glass
- Don’t drink from plastic, only drink from stainless steel containers or glass. Drinking out of glass or stainless steel draws in no chemicals when in the presence of heat. So, if you leave your glass water bottle in the hot car all day, it’s still safe to drink. You drink out of a plastic bottle that sat for a hot 3 hours… consider yourself toxic and leading to a life of CANCER!
Since I am on the topic of drinking, purify your water buy purchasing a facet water purifier. Forget the Brita or the Brita’s container…it’s plastic. Purchasing a water purifier is a safe bet to help rid the water of industrial pollutants and pesticides. Following these tips will cut down on the chemicals that pollute your body, thus reving up your endocrine system to function properly making you into a fit, lean and mean fighting machine!
