tanya marquette Posted about 1 year ago Should the USDA admit that its dietary guidelines are flawed. When the human species evolved it was a slow process with many genetic changes along the way. There was no science recipe book on how to build a person. Our evolution as a species resulted in beings that are biologically and energetically extremely complex with all parts working synergistically. We have great adaptability which is why we can survive all kinds of environmental, social and biological stresses. However, that is not health; it is just basic survival. Western science has refused to see the whole picture. Caught up in its materialistic/mechanistic view of the world with a compulsion for control and conquer, western culture has set up the institution of science to work on this level. What I simply mean is that what goes for science is designed to cherry pick our body and its symptoms in order to find drugs to control those symptoms. There is little concern for how these drugs affect the human body. More so, there is high level of hubris with an attitude that man can overpower nature. Further, more symptoms means selling more drugs means greater fortunes. Thus, we arrive in our current economic and political state where we have no social value other than the profit of corporations. Sounds pretty harsh and not the way people like to think of themselves. But get used to this idea if you really want to free yourself from the propagandistic control of the chemical and big ag industries. As someone wrote in another article the other day, whenever the FDA/USDA/CDC say anything, know it is a lie and think the opposite. Type II diabetes is caused by nutritional aberrations. This relates to stress directly as stress uses up many nutrients such as the B vitamins and Vit C. Cortisol levels rise with stress and impact the way the body works, including the utilization of nutrients and how our hormones work regarding blood sugar. Many holistic practitioners, some of them even MDs work with nutrition to cure diabetes. This is not new.
