Are aneurysms becoming
more common? The preliminary correlative conclusion I have reached
as a result of my research is this: Aneurysms are on the rise &
will continue to become more common as industrialized, profit driven,
chemical factory farming continues to leech farmlands of the mineral
content needed to grow crops which contain the nutrition vital to
human health, intelligence & well being. Specifically, what
I have found is that copper, an essential mineral that should be
present at much higher levels in many of the fruits & vegetables
humans consume is one of the minerals most depleted from our agricultural
A substantial amount of research shows that copper helps keep our
blood vessels elastic.
Most aneurysms occur because our blood
vessels loose elasticity & cannot stretch & return to
shape when disorders like high blood pressure & additional
factors that contribute to atherosclerosis & other diseases
of the cardiovascular system cause changes in blood flow throughout
the system. With the vast majority of cardiovascular problems
experienced in the U.S. relating directly to the standard American
diet, well what’s one more to be ignored as Americans supersize
their way toward the glorious shapes of gluttony?
The U.S. food supply is in what this
journalist sees as a rather sinister state of affairs. We are
being sold food that in essence, tricks us. Our grocery stores
are piled high with fruits & vegetables that fill our bellies
with bulk while often feeding us only a fraction of the nutrients
contained in produce grown under healthy (i.e. natural) conditions.
The USDA has recently
relented to the fact that Americans are grotesquely obese &
unhealthy largely because of the Standard American Diet (what
I acronym as S.A.D.). The U.S.D.A. has in effect
stated that their traditional
food pyramid was all screwed up.
Now the typical American is going to be officially steered to
accept the fact that humans are not designed to eat a meatcentric
diet laced with processed carbs, trans fats & processed sugars.
Brilliant! Kudos to the USDA for catching up to what every vegetarian,
naturopath & body-conscious individual has known all of their
life by way of investigating what they put into their own &
only bodies rather than blindly accepting whatever they are told
or suckered into eating by Madison Avenue.
However, what good does
it do to increase to 9 ‘servings’ a day
of fruits & veggies if they are nutritionally deficient of
what they are supposed to contain (not by U.S. law, but by nature’s).
Additionally, we should not forget the other wonderful ingredients
we get in those colorful mountains of produce in our superstores…
Unaware consumers also get the extra added bonuses of pesticides
& petroleum based waxes which keep the produce package’
delightful to the eye so that money can be extracted from the
consumer's wallets via the same way they are fooled into buying
most things, which is by how things look.
In keeping with the spirit of my Conscious
Consumers’ site, let me move on from citing, complaining
& preaching about these crimes against nature & onto whatever
the heck we might be able to do about this ‘situation –
non – comedy’.
