The Case for Fruits and Vegetables Consumption
Scientists around the world are researching the "fruits
of longevity and health". Many researches have independently arrived at
similar conclusions of the benefits of fruits and vegetable for health
-- in particular, in the fight against cancer.
is not a modern day disease. Archeological findings suggested that
cancer existed thousands of years ago. Cancer has just proliferated in
numbers in "modern day" due to the increase in
carcinogenic (cancer causing agents) substances we are subjected to ...
Fruits and vegetables have been recommended
to combat growing diseases, especially the modern day diseases, and also
as a preventative solution.
1991, United States of America's "5 a Day" campaign promoted the intake
of 5 portions of fruits and vegetables daily. In the 5 years, the cancer
mortality rate and cancer formation rates both dropped every year.
- British Medical Association also promoted fruits and vegetable daily intake for health
research results may vary on the effects of fruits and vegetables on
the different types and stages of cancer, they generally have similar
conclusion on the benefits on deterrent and, reducing and elimination at early stages or of preventable cancers (estimated 60-70% of cancers can be prevented)
books today are written about the benefits of the fruits and vegetables
(organic, that is) and the benefits of color coded fruits and
vegetables to our health.
Why Fruits and Vegetables? (organic, if possible)
Fruits and vegetables are :
- Rich with
nutrients that the body can readily use for growth, for healing, for
prevention of diseases and for health maintenance.
- Full of enzymes
- Contains liquid to hydrate the body
- Firstly, scientific tests have proven than organic fruits and vegetables contains more nutrients than non-organic
organic produce contains harmful pesticides, hormones, artificial
chemicals, etc which are harmful to the body, whereas organic produce
are free of these harmful matters.
- Harmful substance
consumed must be eliminated from the body. For a toxic body, body will
utilize certain nutrients for elimination, instate of using the
nutrients for growth and keep body healthy. For the same amount of
nutrients consumed, more can be used for health rather than waste
elimination, then the body will benefit more. We can help our bodies by
reducing or eliminating consumption of harmful substance.
Health Authority tracks nutrients in food -- showed that nutrients in
food have been decreasing in the last 50 years. This is likely not
unique to Japan, as the decrease in nutrients is due to intensive
farming and use of chemicals, both unhealthy farming practices
- Chemicals used kills or stop microbes surviving in
the soil.These microbes produces the nutrients/minerals for the plants.
The absence of these microbes means the nutrients/minerals will also be
absent from the plants/fruits/vegetables.
Food Today Does Not Contain the Same Nutrients As Food Yesterday
If not organic...
Technically speaking, if the produce consumed is not organic, there will
still be nutrients. However, one will need to consume a larger volume
of same produce to :
- get the same amount of nutrients compared, to organic produce
allow more nutrients in the body to eliminate the harmful substance.
But as one consumes more non organic produce, more harmful substance
will enter he body and in turn will need to consume more to obtain more
nutrients -- a vicious cycle ?
In Summary ...
to just consume organic produce (properly certified), to obtain the
required nutrients for a healthy body.
Admittedly, organic produce costs
more, but the health benefits will be more "pound for pound".
Well, if your think eating the required fruits and vegetables, daily, to
get your nutrients, is quite a task for you, then you can consider food
