Health Nuts

by pastortimfowler

Healthy or Nutty?

I read a recent study conducted by Stanford University about how “all natural” foods are not any better for you than those produced using chemical preservatives and fertilizers. I rejoiced because I have been saying this all along. My belief is that the all natural food movement was nothing more than an all natural money-making scheme. The assumption that if it is all natural it is better for you goes against proven science that has been responsible for the average human life span steadily increasing as technology and science better our ability to grow food.
Now I am not saying that there aren’t some foods that are better than others, because we can all give one example or another of an extreme no brainer there. What I am saying is that our ability to produce foods that can feed more people with less farmland is a direct result of many of these chemicals. We have far less crop loss due to bugs than ever before and far less to diseases that are spread through micro-organisms in our food source than ever before. We also have far fewer cases of E-coli and Salmonella with the use of chemical fertilizers than with natural ones.
If the all natural way was so much better for us, why has our life expectancy gotten higher through that years? Why didn’t the pilgrims live much longer and have less diseases? Why don’t people in third world countries live longer than we do?
There is a huge money-making scheme that is feeding on health nuts. All natural remedies can “cure” baldness, colds, obesity, impotence, and about anything else you can think of. The claim that it is all natural over rides the risks that un-regulation of these products brings. I remember years ago when the all natural ephedrine was the big thing in weight loss. Then people started dying from it and the all natural weight loss phenomenon was pulled from the shelves.
All natural does not equal healthy. Here are a few things that are all natural that you don’t want in your food. Poop; a common substitute for chemical fertilizers. For those who don’t understand, poop is all natural and can kill you if ingested. Roaches and flies: Commonly killed by most chemical pesticides but run rampant in all natural food handling facilities. They carry many diseases that can make you sick and can kill you. Rat droppings; I know, technically poop too: Found in these same food handling facilities, can cause many illnesses.
God gave us brains that are amazing at problem solving. Sometimes those problems require synthetic solutions. Many of the prescription drugs that we take are not all natural and give us amazingly good health results. The all natural treatment known as blood-letting was not a very healthy. Neither was eye of newt, bat wings, or herb bags tucked under our pillows.
The fear that is thrown at us is that these artificial products will cause cancer. But if you look back throughout history, everything you can think of has been linked to cancer at one time or another. Cancer happens to people. It is part of being imperfect beings. Cancer scares people and anything can be found to be a link if the study is done the right way. Here is a good example. Did you know that when studied, it was found that over 75% of people who died of cancer between the ages of 55 and 70, had eaten lettuce several times a month over most of their lives? That means, lettuce is linked to cancer, right?
All natural foods cost more money that the normal stuff we eat, yet it doesn’t cost as much to grow it. That means someone is making more money. Could it be that money is behind it? No!!! Not those pure intentioned people in the natural food market. That would be unheard of. The love of money is the root of all evil…naturally. Think about it.

All Natural

by pastortimfowler

The all natural craze of today really bothers me. I hear TV commercials that offer all natural remedies for everything. They usually say something that leads you to believe that because it is all natural, it can’t hurt you. I have news for you. Cobra venom is all natural and it can kill you dead. I understand the desire to be healthier and try to eat better and want to live longer, but all natural is not the cure-all.
One part of the big all natural movement is to eat only vegetables that are grown without the use of artificial fertilizers. The only problem with that is that the natural fertilizer is manure, or as I like to call it, poop. And poop is not good for you. That is why God designed living creatures to get rid of it in a way that did not include the mouth. The last two major e coli break outs were because the all natural farms growing the all natural veggies were using all natural poop.


Isn’t it weird that we will eat plants that feed on poop, but won’t eat a fish that doesn’t eat poop, but just happened to swim in a lake or part of the ocean that had sewage dumped in it. I would think that the all natural crowd would prefer this too.
All natural stuff for the most part, is a ploy to make money. It takes far less money to get poop than man-made fertilizer. Even if you are buying all natural meat, I believe they call it free range, that means the farmer is not buying processed feeds but rather letting the animals eat what is growing naturally. Shouldn’t that cost less? Why does all natural milk, which I like to call cow squeezins, cost more that cows fed with processed stuff and shot full of chemicals to make them healthy?
All natural man is nothing more than a man who is doomed to die and get sick because of sin, not chemicals. Our life expectancy is longer now than it has been since the days of Moses, because we have found un-natural ways to make humans healthier. But no matter how natural or how un-natural we think we are, God said that we are going to die and get sick. But God is a gracious God who allowed man to be smart enough to find artificial ways to fight disease.
Most people I know do not want an all natural anesthesia when they are getting ready for surgery. Most people want an artificial hip to replace their old worn out, natural one. And the antibiotics that work the best are not the all natural ones either.
If people who love the all natural movement are true to the cause they would not shave, they would not brush their teeth, they would not use birth control, (the artificial kind) nor would they watch TV, listen to electronic music, or cook with an electric stove. I am also glad that they are not true to the cause, because this blog is “written” using anything but all natural stuff. Why I am even using some artificial words in this blog just to mess with those who are all natural. WHOOPDY DO!
Not even our salvation is all natural. Can you imagine Jesus as a natural man trying to redeem the world? Natural man is a sinful man. Jesus Christ was not natural, He is SUPERNATURAL!
Give me some meat full of hormones and if there is arsenic in it, I want the fake stuff. I want my cow squeezins radiated and pasturated. I want my veggies grown with good clean fertilizer and no poop. I want my woman washed and smelling good with smelly stuff that kills all of the bacteria that would make her smell all natural and I want her to shave with the finest of artificial lubrication in the shaving cream to make her legs as smooth as a babies all natural butt. I want my man-made money to go as far as it can, as I purchase the things that keep hard-working chemists in America employed through this tough economic time.
And finally, I want all the SUPERNATURAL Jesus I can get, because when it comes to me, I am just better with Him than I can ever be all natural.
