Processed Food: Officially Linked to Autoimmune Disease

11712b59b7451f5e9820b07ddea940aaI feel so passionately about the topic of Processed Foods, that I am posting this TODAY.  Scientists have officially linked Processed food to Autoimmune Disease. key here is to keep you informed of the latest research so you can make educated decisions about your own habits.


“U.S. fast foods are often more than twice as salt-laden as those of other countries.” -Have you stopped to ask yourself WHY?  I don’t know about you, but this raises a red flag for me.  Our taste buds require it because over the years we have allowed manufacturers to add more and more salt, preservatives and other fillers to our foods and as a result we are harming our bodies.  We are used to it.  It is the same with sugar.  If you have ever visited Europe, you may recall that their desserts are significantly less sweet and/or salty.  Taste buds are a powerful part of our bodies.  When we eat these processed foods we get caught in a vicious cycle because the more we eat, the more we crave it!

“Just one 6-inch Roasted Garlic loaf from Subway–just the bread, no meat, no cheeses, no nothing–has 1,260 mg sodium, about as much as 14 strips of bacon.”  This is outrageous!  The really shocking part, is the general public thinks eating a sandwich at Subway is a healthy way to eat.  It’s not fried right?  Add a little meat and cheese and your sodium content is out of the roof!

“Refined, processed and bleached salts are the problem…Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems. It’s a view that is echoed by other academics such as David McCarron, of Oregon Health Sciences University in the US.” – We have to make choices that provide our bodies with the most nutrient dense foods as often as possible.  This is the way back to improving our health as a nation.

He (Dr Hendel) says salt has always been part of the human diet, but what has changed is the mineral content of our food. Instead of eating food high in minerals, such as nuts, fruit and vegetables, people are filling themselves up with “mineral empty” processed food and fizzy drinks.”  – Well said.  We are making choices that are pulling our nutrition down and only we can change that.
