absolutely incredible. When we take care of them, we
cannot get sick. Here's the secret: the only things

Absolutely. We are calorie-rich, nutritionally
poor. The thing is, we're built to eat living food, foods
that contain enzymes and micro-nutrients. But look at our
food production methods: animals raised on fat farms full
of antibiotics and growth hormones (can you say steroids?),
fruits and vegetables bathed in poisons and chemical stimulants
and planted in exhausted soils devoid of living
micro-organisms; and all of these toxins end up
where? In our water supply and eventually in our

zappable. By the time we put them in our mouths, they

Besides the obvious poisons we consume, we also poison
ourselves with stress, sleep deprivation, inadequate water
consumption, lack of movement.
Can we change this? Absolutely. Is it easy?
