Why Grains are Now Destroying the Health of Millions

We are all familiar with the reasons that GMO foods, chemically treated foods and additives are bad for one’s health. Those things are easy to recognize with a little common sense, but there are some far more subtle and difficult to detect ways in which diet has been used against the consumer to degrade their health.

We are suddenly coming into an age where Celiac’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and gluten intolerance are rapidly increasing health threats. This, like any disease which has increased (or even just recently came about) in the history of the human race should be warning signs. It means that something is fundamentally different (and wrong) with the dietary intake of those populations where the disease is growing. The US is leading the way in such illnesses and it can’t be a coincidence.

Anyone acquainted with the depopulation agenda of the ruling elite, also understands that their health is in their own hands.

No doctor, medical or government institute is a reasonably trustworthy resource when it comes to defining what is healthy.

In fact, it is the outright goal of these establishments to promote disease causing diets and habits. It is the lucrative business of depopulation.

As people have become far more aware than they once were of the horrors awaiting them in the grocery store, more have turned to organic and natural source foods to avoid the onslaught of chemical and genetically engineered foods.

Perhaps one of the most consumed and trusted groups of “natural” food sources includes every manner of grain, nuts, legumes and other seeds. It seems completely reasonable that not only are these things healthy when grown organically, but even necessary for optimal health.

grains

These foods do contain a high value of nutrition, but we have failed to take notice of some very important elements in how they reach our tables.

Since the first humans left the garden of Eden, mankind has had to till the soil, sow seed and harvest his crop to eat. Since that time, humanity has been an agricultural race, with nearly every culture on earth growing some form of grain.

Who questions how grains go from seed to bread? Very few of us, I think.

They have been eaten for thousands of years without trouble and had not people around me begun to exhibit some very curious symptoms, I might have never considered how grains are treated before they are consumed in this modern age.

A seed is the future of a species of plant. It is their “offspring”. That being the case, it must be a hardy little thing, containing all it needs to not only develop a new plant but also to resist environmental adversity before the point of ideal germination.

One of the key ingredients to this process is something called phytic acid.

Phytic acid is present in a significant concentration in anything that is a seed, including nuts and legumes.

phytic acid

The problem with this acid is that human beings are not able to digest it.

Only ruminating animals are capable of breaking it down with an enzyme called phytase, which human beings lack.

The obvious result might be degrees of indigestion, but the more serious result is that phytic acid depletes the body of phosphorous and many other vital nutrients, resulting in malnourishment to some level when the dietary intake of the phytic acid is high.

Furthering the problem, the “bran” or hard shell of the seed is also indigestible and consuming great quantities of it results in the equivalent of passing shrapnel constantly through the digestive tract. The bran contains phytic acid in concentration.

Seeds such as nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, etc. would not be found in high concentrations in the diet of earlier civilizations.

Nuts and seeds to be eaten whole were not so commonly cultivated in great quantities, so the dietary intake of them would be more occasional and not used as a staple food source. Grains, however, were very commonly cultivated, but harvested, stored and processed much differently than they are today.

Since the idea of “whole grains” being healthy came about, many have turned to them as a staple food item, believing that the higher their intake of indigestible bran and fiber was, the better their health would be.

A “whole grain” is only as healthy as the way it came to your table, though.

In the past, agriculture was an art of patience and prayer, waiting for rain at the right times and dry weather at the right times. It was a process of waiting, reaping and storing. Now agriculture is massive, fast and mechanized.

At one time, when the harvest was ready, the grain was cut and allowed to sit in the fields for long stretches of time before it was gathered (it takes a long time to harvest fields with scythes). As the grains sat, they were exposed to rain and sun and that naturally caused many of the grains in the field to begin the germination process.

Once a seed begins to germinate, the phytic acid content drops and the nutrient value goes up.

When those grains were then taken from the fields and they reached the consumer, they were not often used as they were, but soaked in water for a length of time which further reduced the phytic acid content.

Many cultures also fermented their grains before making them into bread, and this process resulted in a much more digestible and nutrient rich final product.

Soaking Grains

Fermenting Grains

In modern farming, not only do we have pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and GMOs to consider but also added hormone growth regulators which are sprayed on the crop. These hormone regulators can legally be called “natural” or “organic” because they are often derived from other plants, but that does not mean it is at all natural to spray them on a growing crop of plants.

Since crops are no longer harvested or stored in the traditional ways, those grains become subject to fungi and pests.

To combat this, even when the seed itself has not been treated, the storage facilities spray down the storage units with fungicides and pesticides.

The grains are exposed to temperatures which deplete their nutritional content and when they are moved to a milling facility, they are milled in a “dead” state. A seed that can’t germinate is dead and it isn’t fit for consumption.

A seed that is viable but still in its closed, dormant state, is also not ideal for consumption. Milled in this state, the phytic acid content is such that when you receive the flour of bread from which it was made, you are consuming something that is not feeding, but rather robbing your system of vital nutrients and setting your digestive system (and eventually your immune system) up for failure.

In considering what is best for your health, you must also consider than not all of us have exactly the same nutritional needs. Some ethnic backgrounds can tolerate seed food sources better than others. Some would do better to never eat seed products at all.

Those who exhibit the lowest tolerance for seed foods tend to have Rh negative blood types and those are also the people who are rapidly becoming the highest instance of autoimmune dysfunction.

If you or those around you have suffered from degenerative illnesses, digestive diseases, autoimmune diseases or estrogen dominant reproductive illnesses, i might recommend that you try life without conventional grain products. Whether by way of consuming only soaked and fermented seed products or by avoiding them entirely, you may find your health greatly improved.

Depriving People of Life and Humanity

Posted in 10 : Culling the Herd with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/13/2010 by timenolonger

Since Adam, man has been meant to live a life of agriculture. It is in the core of human instinct to plant and sow, nurture and reap a harvest, and doing so is a big part of human fulfillment.

Growing food for living is not only a matter of survival of days past, when people could not simply go to the grocery store to buy food, it is a matter of survival of this day as well. Food does not magically appear on store shelves, someone grows it.

Unfortunately it is the case that fewer and fewer real farmers grow the food that people eat and more so it has become true that food is grown by giant agricultural factories who are not interested in how the food they produce nourishes the people who buy it, but are interested in making the largest profit possible and being an unbeatable competition for real farmers.

This is not just a problem for farmers, it is a problem for you.

It is the small, local farmer who is more likely to care that they are not using pesticides and herbicides and GMO seed which people do not wish to consume, and which – if one is forced to eat long enough – will destroy the body.

It is not enough for some that the giant agricultural factories are suffocating the small, local farms, but now they wish to implement laws that will not just make it hard, but make it impossible for small farms to continue to operate, and even make it impossible for people to have their own gardens.

Such an evil combination of legislation has been proposed or accepted recently which hurt all areas of a persons ability to eat clean, healthy food and have access to natural cures.

These measures greatly benefit the black-hearted greed of such organizations like drug companies and GMO food producers like Monsanto.

The evil, though, is deeper than just their greed.

They are aware of what it will mean for people if they are forced on to a diet of processed, genetically manipulated and chemically poisoned foods. They know what it will mean to take away the healing herbs which The Almighty created, and cause people to run to drugs instead for their remedy.

As it is already the case that these things are taking many lives in this nation, it will ensure that nearly everyone will live a shorter and a sicker life.

And what else will be lost? The joy of spending a day with the family in the sun, tending the garden, watching the miracle of His increase as He gives it upon their labors. No money can buy blessings like those.

It makes me wonder how much of their plans might be thwarted just by a great mass of repentance by people in this nation.

It might be that He has handed over the country to those who would destroy it and its people, because it is a society so rotten with sin and in love with sin.

“Woe is me, for I am like those who gather summer fruits. Like those who glean vintage grapes. There is no cluster to eat of the first-ripe fruit that my soul desires.

The faithful have perished from the earth and no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood. Every man hunts his brother with a net that they may successfully do evil with both hands.

The prince asks and the judge a reward and the high placed utters his evil desire. So they scheme together. The best of them is like a brier, the most upright a thorn hedge. The day of your watchman and your punishment comes. Now shall be their perplexity.”
– Micah 7:1-4

“S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency

2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security.

3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.”

4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food.

5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security.

6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals.

7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production – put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.

8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy.

9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs.

10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control.” Food Freedom
