Food and the Human Body
Avocadoes target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female and the testes of the male and they look just like these organs.
Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?
It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
One of these compounds is glutathione the most powerful antioxidant of the body in buffering dietary and metabolic acids. To learn more about Glutathione as a powerful antioxidant in buffering dietary and metabolic acids in the prevention or reversal of Parkinson's disease, Click Here.
Avocados also contain a phytochemical called lutein that protects the prostate and ovaries from acids that cause cancer. To learn more about lutein Click Here.
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of spermas well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Grapefruits, lemons and lime fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
Carrots when cut resemble the human eye and are full of vitamins and minerals that support the eyes. Science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and the function of the eyes.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries and testes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
The human mind has an inherent urge to make sense of the environment, to detect patterns, to classify its impressions, and to create order out of chaos. We find this order all around us if we will just look.

U.S. researchers reported on Tuesday that people who eat two or more servings of red meat a day are much more likely to develop conditions leading to heart disease and diabetes, .
The researchers reported in the journal Circulation that eating two or more servings of meat a day increases the risk of suffering from a cluster of risk factors known as metabolic syndrome (latent tissue acidosis) by 25 percent compared to those who had only two servings of meat a week.
Symptoms of metabolic syndrome (latent tissue acidosis) include excessive fat around the waist, high cholesterol, high blood sugar and high blood pressure.
According Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist at the pH Miracle Living Center states, "eating meat increases dietary acids of nitric, uric, phosphuric and sulphuric acid which leads to the following conditions:
1) Increased body fat to park excess dietary acid to protect the organs that sustain life.
2) Increased blood cholesterol to buffer or neutralize increased dietary acidity to protect blood vessels and prevent internal bleeding.
3) Increased blood acidic blood sugars from the breakdown of body cells due to excess acidity.
4) Increased high blood pressure as a result of the body chelating excess dietary acids with alkaline compounds, such as sodium, potassium and calcium that have not been properly eliminated through urination, defecation or perspiration."
The study also found that consuming diet soda was linked to these elevated risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, echoing the findings of another study published in July.
"When we found that diet soda promoted risk we were surprised, but then we thought about other behavior patterns." "It may be associated with compensating for eating higher calorie food. People may say, 'I can eat this cookie because I am drinking this diet soda."' said Dr. Lyn Steffen, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Minnesota.
"The acidic ingredients in soda pop, including diet soda, that can make you sick, tired, depressed and fat are carbonic acid and sugar." states Dr. Young.
Lots of acidic meat, acidic fried foods and acidic diet soda add up to heart disease and the conclusions add to a swelling body of evidence linking fast food with unhealthy lifestyles, according to the researchers findings.
Dr. Lyn Steffen's team examined the diets of 9,514 people in a study funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. In a departure from related studies, this one went into a detailed look at precisely what people were eating. Most were aged 45 to 64.
Based on a 66-item food frequency questionnaire, the volunteers were categorized into two groups: those with a "western-pattern" acidic diet, heavy on processed meat, fried foods, red meat; and a more alkaline "prudent-pattern" diet with more fruit and vegetables, with small amounts of fatty fish.
After nine years, nearly 40 percent of those involved developed three or more of the factors linked to metabolic syndrome (latent tissue acidosis), they wrote. This was clear even when smoking and exercise were factored in.
Fruits and vegetables are rich in potassium salts, a natural buffer. Eating few of these foods deprives us of potassium, a mineral that protects against hypertension and stroke. Long term, excess acidity leads to thinner bones and lower muscle mass.
Susan Brown, Ph.D., who heads the nonprofit Osteoporosis Education Project in East Syracuse, N.Y., frames the acid-alkaline issue as one of mineral adequacy and depletion. "It's a little like over-farming and depleting mineral levels in soil," she says. "If we eat foods that create an acidic pH in the body, we will deplete our bones of minerals and our muscles of protein."
Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins,alkaline minerals, fiber that are key to good health.Now, a newly released study by Agricultural Research Service (ARS)-funded scientists suggests alkaline plant foods also may help preserve muscle mass and bone density in older men and women.
The study was led by physician and nutrition specialist Bess Dawson-Hughes at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston, Mass.
The typical American diet is rich highly acidic in protein, cereal grains and other acid-producing foods.In general, such acidic diets generate dietary amounts of acid each day. With aging, a mild but slowly increasing metabolic "acidosis" develops, according to the researchers.
Acidosis appears to trigger a muscle-wasting response. So the researchers looked at links between measures of lean body mass and diets relatively high in alkaline potassium-rich, alkaline-residue producing fruits and vegetables. Such diets could help neutralize acidosis. Foods can be considered alkaline or acidic based on the residues they produce in the body, rather than whether they are alkaline or acidic themselves. For example, acidic grapefruits, lemons and limes are metabolized to alkaline residues because of their high alkaline potassium bicarbonate content.
The researchers conducted a cross-sectional analysis on a subset of nearly 400 male and female volunteers aged 65 or older who had completed a three-year osteoporosis intervention trial. The volunteers' physical activity, height and weight, and percentage of lean body mass were measured at the start of the study and at three years. Their urinary potassium was measured at the start of the study, and their dietary data was collected at 18 months.
Based on regression models, volunteers whose diets were rich in alkaline buffers such as potassium could expect to have 3.6 more pounds of lean tissue mass than volunteers with half the higher potassium intake. That almost offsets the 4.4 pounds of lean tissue that is typically lost in a decade in healthy men and women aged 65 and above, according to authors. The study was published in the March issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Sarcopenia, or loss of muscle mass, can lead to falls due to weakened leg muscles. The authors encourage future studies that look into the effects of increasing overall intake of foods that metabolize to alkaline residues on muscle mass and functionality.
ARS is the U.S. Department of Agriculture's chief scientific research agency.
According to Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist at The pH Miracle Living Center, "a diet high in protein and/or dairy is a diet high in lactic, uric and nitric acid when not properly eliminated through urination, perspiration or defecation will breakdown connective tissue, muscle tissue and bone. If you want to maintain or build muscle and bone mass then get off the acidic animal protein, diary and high sugar fruits that will eventually break your body down. Acids are the cause of aging and the best anti-aging advice is to eat and/or drink 12 servings of alkaline fruits and vegetables every day."
