Is the food we eat killing us?

In the past, food was something that can keep us alive. Now, we have invented various ways to cook food. We enjoy eating. However, we cannot make sure all the food are safe. I don't know whether or not it comes to the same problem in other countries, but it do happen in my country. Some people treat food with harmful chemicals and some use food raw materials in bad quality. So, when I shop in the shopping centre, I sometimes get confused. "Which food can I trust ?" My friends and I always ask ourselves.
Do you have the same problem? If you have, do you have some solutions?

  • May 3 2014: Vernica I just started a new website http://www.godsaid.net/ It kind of explains what happened with food IMHO in the beginning when people did as God instructed (Gen. 1-29) and what happened to the human race after Noah, the flood and God changed his/her mind in (Gen. 9-3).
    In between in that time period of over a thousand years man ate fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds (as directed by God) and as a direct result they were healthy and happy. Some grew into giants and others lived for several hundred years, Noah lived for 950 years and Methuselah for 969 years.
    After God said to Noah in (Gen. 9-3) that humans could kill and eat anything that moved on the planet, well the evidence is overwhelming, humans start getting progressively sicker and more susceptible to diseases. Along with their physical health getting worse their mental health also took a turn for the worse. They lived shorter and increasingly violent lives and suffered greatly as a direct result of their bad health, caused by bad food.
    • May 4 2014: From a link Rodrigo Capucho Paulo posted in another conversation, I thought it fit with your post.

      "In 1929, Joseph Russell Smith took up an antecedent term as the subtitle forTree Crops: A Permanent Agriculture, a book in which he summed up his long experience experimenting with fruits and nuts as crops for human food and animal feed.[5] Smith saw the world as an inter-related whole and suggested mixed systems of trees and crops underneath. "

    • May 4 2014: We are eating better and healthier and enought hen people in Disiples world lived.
      • May 4 2014: The period I am talking about is from Adam to Noah's flood about 1056 years long before any disciples were born. After the flood is when God said “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” Gen. 9:3

        Ever since that time the human race has devolved into the violent, crazy state we are in today.

        For over a thousand years people where happy and healthy on the Vegan diet God prescribed which was fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. (“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” Gen. 1:29) Some people grew into giants and some lived to be several hundred years old (Noah 950 years old, Methuselah 969 years old and many others)

        So you say we are healthier today (a joke I am sure), do you know of anyone over 160 years old?
    • May 15 2014: God gave over the animals to be eaten after the Fall. There will be heresies that call the clean "unclean" (1 Timothy 4:1-5). Meat is acceptable to God (Gen 18:7-8, Samuel 25:8-18, Deutoronomy 12:15-22).

      Anyone who claims that eating meat is unBiblical is a liar, nothing better.

      There is, of course, a difference between eating meat and being a glutton on it.
      • May 15 2014: Either you did not read every thing I said or you are up to your usual slander which I have had enough of and as I warned you this will be the last time I ever respond to anything you say!
        Gen. 1:29 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat" It is pretty clear to me that God had provided plenty of plant food and told us to eat it for meat. Now for 1056 years they did as commanded and lived incredibly long and healthy lives and some grew to be giants. However for whatever reason after the flood God changed his mind (hard for me to believe a God doing such a thing) and in Gen. 9:3 “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” Now after humans have thrived and stayed healthy for over a thousand years, God says not only can we eat the green herb as he first commanded BUT we can now eat "anything that moves" So if Bryan Maloney moves, he is on the menu! It is there in black and white go read it yourself.

        So if you are wondering what is wrong with the world, my guess is they are doing exactly what they were told by their God, they are killing and eating everything that moves, including humans.
        These are not my words, this is directly from God: “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you" Let that sink in for awhile but don't tell me what you think because "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" to quote Clark Gable.

        One last footnote: In Mexico they just found the skull of a 12-13,000 year old girl! That would be over 8,000 years before the mystical Adam was even born in the bible and before the world was even magically poofed into existence. Kinda makes you think maybe, just maybe some of this book could be fiction?? http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/15/us-science-skeleton-idUSKBN0DV1UW20140515
