I am taking gas and omeprazole 20 mg caps to claim my tommy down
Am loving Kombucha and the idea that my gut is functioning properly - so important when we're stressing the muscles etc. Peace!
Chicken of the Sea
The question addressed here is the difference between wild caught and farm raised fish. What are the features, advantages and benefits to these very different food sources? At the moment wild caught is still a better choice overall. Here’s why.
Truth, the ocean is filled with toxins, especially plastic, and so are you. The sea becomes ever more polluted every day. In twenty years, although life will continue to flourish in the oceans, the sea animals will no longer be safe for human consumption, as is now true of Chesapeake Bay. So it’s best to enjoy the fruit of the sea while it is still available.
The main advantage to wild caught is the exposure to the vast nourishing minerals of the earth’s oceans. Anyone who lives near usable ocean front understands first hand the benefit of the sea. But do not be deceived into thinking that catch from far isolated areas of the world is not equally toxic. Whales tested anywhere in the world all show the buildup of chemicals released into the oceans.
This is why the fish farming industry is growing so rapidly. You see ever more farm raised fish in your local market. The industry knows that wild fish will soon be too toxic to eat. The food industry is preparing you for the inevitable.
Although farm raised seafood lacks the toxins of the open seas, it has other issues not good for human consumption. For example, the large amount of antibiotics used. Fish are farmed in small closed areas and the animals contract infections and parasites. Resultantly, antibiotics and pesticides are used to alleviate these issues. Constantly ingesting antibiotics will destroy your immune system and of course the pesticides poison you.
Farm raised fish lacks the nutrients usually acquired in the open sea. Nutrition in the context of farm raised fish is analogous to vegetables grown without soil in a hydroponic garden. The flesh of farm raised salmon is grey because the fish did not dine on seafood. But the fish is dyed pink to please your mind.
The fate of the world’s oceans has already been sealed. So enjoy the last of the fruit while you still can.
Oh by the way ...
Once in a seafood store I noticed a sign, "Wild Caught Atlantic Salmon".
Now this is not possible because it is illegal to commercially fish Atlantic Salmon in the USA. So I inquired to the manager. As I discovered, some fish is farm raised and then released into the wild, where the originally farm raised fish is caught, sent to market and labelled "Wild Caught".
Caveat emptor (Let the buyer beware)
This meal typifies the problem with the American diet:
Eating this way will lead to:
Simple, isn’t it?
After protein this is probably the most discussed supplement for men. Here’s a list of herbal potions all guaranteed to simulate the prostate in a very effective way. These potions will give you strength if you seek development, or heal if you have issues. Pick one that suits you best. The results are long term; these are not energy drinks. The herbs used here are in dried form.
1) Tincture (water, grain alcohol or rum)
2) Buy Vital Testron
3) Boil one ounce
Simmer in 1 gal distilled water for 20 minutes
Stain and store in cool place
4) Tincture in 50% pure grain alcohol, 50% water for six weeks:
Fill bottle a third full with herbs
Take a table spoon daily
5) Avoiding greasy & fried foods and, cleansing the lower intestines will help your prostate tremendously.
There's strong correlation between your bathroom medicine cabinet and your refrigerator. Have you noticed?
Proper foods tells us what? Why can't we eat the foods that are just as important to our health as claories, carbs sodium, etc... I've been told to eat 5 small meals a day yet I'm starvin by dinner time around 6 pm with a headache. I love fruits and veggies but not all are good for me due to allergic reactions but I manage to make due. so can someone suggest something.
America’s food supply has become so toxic we must now pay more to buy food grown the way it was intended to be grown. First let’s restrict this conversation to produce. We can discuss animal flesh another time. Organic is a tricky word as you must learn what the USDA allows in a product in order to obtain the label ORGANIC. From a laymen’s perspective you can think of fresh organic produce as fruits and vegetables grown without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers in soil that has remained chemical free for at least 40 years.
This is very important because the amount of pesticides used in the produce you buy from your local supermarket is very high, and remember if it kills the bugs it will also kill you. Washing the produce cannot possibly remove the chemicals that have been used to grow the food. As a child I often found a worm in my apple. When have you ever seen a worm in an apple? That’s because no self respecting worm would be caught dead in one of those poison apples we buy from our local supermarket.
So how do you know the produce is organic? That’s simple: the price. Organic produce is very expensive. The lack of chemicals and waxing coupled with the travel time needed to bring the product to market makes fresh organic produce a much more perishable product. But if you are wise you will learn to price shop. Also local farmers in your area use far less pesticide because their volume is not so great and they are much closer to their end market. You can also ask your local farmer what type and how much pesticide they use.
Now it is not necessary to buy everything organic. Here’s a list of the most toxic produce on the market currently: apples, potatoes, strawberries, grapes, collards, kale, celery, spinach, bell peppers, peaches & cucumbers.
The reason our produce needs so much pesticide is because we have taken control of the seeds. A plant is constantly mutating to trick the bugs. And of course the bugs adapt because they want to eat the plant. But because we now control the seeds, the plant no longer mutates, so the bugs can simply ravish the plant as it has no protection. Also plants are indigenous to certain parts of our planet, so they have defenses to bugs local to that proximity. But we now freely move plants over the entire surface of the planet, so the plant encounters new predators. So we must drown the plant in chemicals to protect it from the bugs. And all those chemicals end up in you and me.
Now what about chemical fertilizers in the soil? Well it makes the plant look pretty but adding nitrates to the soil doesn’t do much in terms of vitamin fortification. For example, you must eat four bananas to ingest the potassium you expect to receive from a fruit normally grown in rich brown soil. And it gets worse!
Because almost all supermarket produce is trucked an average of 1500 miles, the produce was harvested when the plant was very young and immature. So it ripened on air as it was transported. Often the plant is radiated to encourage the ripening process. Yes radiated as in placed in a concrete room where large doses of radiation can be administered.
So next time you scoff at the notion of paying more for organic or local grown produce, just remember the chemicals you are ingesting and the nutrition you’re not receiving when you bite into that pretty apple that even a worm would not touch.
