As we mentioned in previous articles we know that the American diet contains high saturated fat, trans fat, and other harmful substances such as sugar, caffeine, pesticides, additive substances, and less in fruits and vegetables. These types of harmful substances are toxic. Our body's detoxifying functions try to get rid of them everyday, when they fail it causes disruption of hormone production, damaging our body's detoxification organs and weakens our immune system resulting in hormone imbalance and many chronic illness consequently. In this article, we will discuss the internal cause of a toxic body.
1. Overdose of red meat
Our animals are grown in a crowded environment and fed by growth hormones to perverse the maximum profits. No matter how restricted the government regulations are, these traces of growth hormone still remain in the animal body causing more harm than good. Although our body requires protein and fat to function daily, overdose of red meat causes cholesterol building up in the arteries, triglyceride in the bloodstream, and high blood pressure resulting in heart diseases and chronic illness.
2. Overdose sugar
Carbohydrates are essential to our liver and kidney function, overdose of sugar in American diet causes insulin resistance, damaging the pancreas, reducing the circulation of blood and causing hormone imbalance.
3. Excessive drinking
Our social life is a mess. We drink too much. Since alcohol is a stimulant, moderate drinking helps increase the circulation of blood and improve mental alertness. Excessive drinking reduces the brain's function, damaging our liver, decreasing the function of the immune system and causing inflammation.
4. Artificial Agents
Artificial agents may help to perverse food and make it look good, but they are toxic to our body. These types of agents stimulate appetite by directly influencing the hunger centers of the brain causing you to eat more resulting in obesity.
Smoking not only causes lung cancer, it also causes the depletion of oxygen levels in the bloodstream, increasing the risk of hardening, thickening and calcium attached in arterial wall as well as increasing the risk of heavy metals accumulating in our brain.
6. Consuming not enough fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are high in nutrients that are vital for daily function of our body. Vitamins C, E, K and chemical substances in fruits and vegetables such as alpha carotene, beta carotene, selenium, chlorophyll, and amino acid are powerful antioxidants that not only helps to increase body metabolism, it also helps in strengthening our immune system against fighting the forming of free radicals as well as protecting our body by fighting against inflammation caused by bacteria and virus
