With the direction the world is headed, everyone is busy working, with family, and just plain living; it’s becoming more and more common to ditch cooking at home and eat out. It’s easier, faster and way more convenient. But what the majority of people don’t understand is, that eating out may with almost certainty, increase the risk of developing illnesses, possible diseases and this includes cancer.
Studies shows, that the levels of chemicals in the body, were 35 percent higher of those who regularly ate at restaurants, cafeterias and fast food places. They also discovered that individuals who ate processed cheeseburgers and other fast foods, had “phthalates” levels, 30 percent higher than those who did not.
Simply put “Phthalates” are used to make a range of plastics and can be found in nail polishes and moisturizers and have been linked to breast cancer, type 2 diabetes, fertility issues and the list goes on. They can seep into foods from packaging containing these “phthalates”.
So why is that?
When you eat out, you can’t track where the food you are eating is coming from, or if contains any preservatives? if it’s processed? has it been frozen and for how long? is the Meat free from hormones and antibiotics? are Vegetables free from pesticide? The list can go on and on.
My grandparents passed away in 2016 at age 94 and 98. Both were healthy and fully capable of doing everything themselves till last day in their life.
If you stop for a minute and think about it, what did my grandparents do differently that made them live a long healthy life?
Growing up, I remember my grandparents were gardening their fruit and vegetables every summer, canned everything for the winter, bought their meat from a farm/butcher they trusted and that they known for over 50 years.
So to the long and short of it is; they knew their food source, no chemicals, no preservatives, no additives, no hormones and no antibiotics. Going back to basic of clean eating is the answer for a long healthy life.
