There are few things tastier than a big juicy burger with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, onion rings, and a sloppy sauce of some sort on top. But sometimes we have to come to terms with the things we put in our bodies; and I say 'bodies' instead of 'mouths' because your body does essentially become that burger. Let me explain.
The truth here is that life in our food is what fuels the life in our bodies. Let's start at the beginning. You are made up completely of cells. These cells die and reproduce every day, and you need energy to give those cells in order to properly reproduce. Living enzymes in raw organic plants aid in the regeneration of new living cells. Instead when we put dead foods (dead animal flesh) in our bodies it results in weak cells, thus producing a weak body.
Our bodies were made to only digest plant products rather than animal products. Raw plant source foods are loaded with fiber, and it is the fiber that keeps the food moving rapidly through our digestive tract. However when an animal food sources are consumed and is sent through the same digestive tract, problems can occur. These problems appear because animal products contain no fiber and are extremely acidic. Thus animal foods move very slowly through the digestive tract in an atmosphere of about 98.6 degrees, causing them to putrefy. This putrefied flesh causes physical health problems such as: body odor, colitis, acidosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, crones disease, and colon cancer. All things considered, we eat little of what we were meant to eat.
Today we put all kinds of animal products into our bodies, which are loaded with fat. Such foods contain toxins from everything the animal has eaten during its entire lifetime; not to mention the antibiotics and growth hormones that were introduced into that animal's body. Animal fat within these products accumulate in our bodies, clog our arteries, and cause the death of about 40% of the population from heart attacks and strokes each year. This is result of just a portion of horrible things we eat. I could go on about the 170 pounds of sugar we take in annually that suppresses our immune system significantly, but that's for another article. As loudly as that burger calls my name, it's the raw fruits, vegetables, and plant proteins that my body asks for.
