Vegan Food versus Non-vegan Food

Why VEGAN food?

And WHICH vegan food is balanced?

 

Here are some contrasting points between vegan and non-vegan food.

 

Of course YOU choose your own food plus the results. Choose wisely!

 

 

Balanced VEGAN food

 

+  Plant-based food avoids the problems of non-vegan food.

+  The body's organs and systems can regenerate after discontinuing non-vegan food.

+  Proper plant-based food fills all your vital nutritious needs.

 

 

However, you still need to know what you're doing.

Because a vegan diet is usually low in Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, calcium, iron, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids.
So you need to care about things, know which foods contain which nutrients, and then eat accordingly.

 

Just vegan alone is not good enough, you see.

If you eat lots of fat - or of the wrong fat - you will suffer for it.

Loads of bread and pasta is not a good idea either, especially not the white types.

Sugar and alcohol are vegan too, but overindulging is obviously unwise.

 

So what is HEALTHY vegan food?

 

Eat plenty of and a great variety of different fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, pulses/legumes,
and do limit sugary and fatty foods.
Eat at least some of it RAW and fresh.
Make sure you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs.

Learn about the food you're eating, understand what it does in the body.

Eat nutritious food and avoid empty calories.

Drink good water and original juices.

Eat well, exercise - get moving, and sleep well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NON-VEGAN food

 

-  Cheese contains casein which is probably the worst animal protein. Simply put, animal protein plus toxins (incl. stress) makes cancer cells.

-  Milk contains growth factors (especially IGF-1) which directly encourage cancer growth.

- Dairy (milk, cheese, butter, yoghurt, cream, etc.) has all of the above PLUS is full of animal fat. This contributes to obesity and to a sluggish lymph system (= sewerage system), fat also reduces how much oxygen exists in tissues.

- Milk often leads to asthma, chronic mucus in the air ways, ear infections, and it contributes to digestive problems (not related to lactose intolerance which is another side effect of dairy).

- Milk also acidifies the body and thus uses up a lot of calcium (rather than providing us with calcium). Milk leads to brittle bones and thus fractures, milk leads to oxidative stress and inflammations.

- Various studies have shown that milk can lead to Diabetes type 1.

- Fat-reduced milk actually makes people fat, and pasteurised milk makes people ill and often allergic. And dairy contains antibiotics.

- Milk and dairy products contain hormones such as estrogen (incl. estrone sulfate) and progesterone, which lead especially to female and male cancers.

- Dairy and Meat can according to Bardor (2005) help to bring in pathogens (eg. EColi, TB, Streptococci etc.), (SIGLECs get damaged by pathogens which hide under them, much like the Trojan horse idea), and various conditions and illnesses can result.

- Meat cannot be digested well in the human bowels, it sits there too long putrifying and toxifying the body. Many bowels are congested due to meat.

- Meat can lead to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritic problems, chronically inflamed bowels, etc.

- Meat is full of antibiotics and hormones.

- The digestion of meat uses up the enzymes needed to destroy cancer cells. It also uses up essential minerals which leads to deficiencies and then to osteoporosis, paradontosis, arthritis.

- Meat eaters have a hard time losing weight.

- Eggs - the same as meat - contain cholesterol which can block arteries. They also contain antibiotics.

- All animal-based food contains cholesterol. Plant-based food doesn't contain cholesterol.

- Fish is full of antibiotics, 5 different ones are being used in aqua cultures.

 

You are encouraged to google meat, eggs, dairy and their effect on body and health, - but don't be taken in by the lobbies of the respective industries!
