One of the single most valuable things you can do to keep yourself healthy and fight disease is to make dietary changes. Throughout history, from place to place people have eaten a wide variety of foods. Over time, as the conveniences of modern society grew, our diets have dramatically changed. Today’s standard diet consists of more processed foods and fewer whole natural foods. It is not unusual for modern diets to be mainly derived from processed sugars, preservatives, hormone disruptors, coloring, flavor enhancers, and even toxic residues from processing and packaging of the foods. These changes are a far cry from the natural, whole food diets of our ancestors. Today’s standard diet has contributed to an unprecedented level of toxicity and deficiency in the body and has caused a lot of chronic degenerative health issues.
Going back to a more natural diet consisting of whole foods is very important in improving and maintaining your health. Research has shown very strong connections between the food you consume and your overall health, especially when dealing with chronic illness such as cancer.
