what do we avoid when we eat vegan, organic, plant food diet?

What we avoid when we eat an
organic, vegan, plant foods diet

Pleomorphic pathogenic bacteria - Meat, fish, and dairy are loaded with these organisms whether we cook it or not.

"The Average American meal of animal products contains between 750,000,000 to 1,000,000,000 pleomorphic pathogenic micro-organisms. The average vegetarian meal consisting of only plant foods (i.e. vegan) contains less than 500 pathogenic micro-organisms." pp278: Sick and Tired: Reclaim your Inner Terrain, Dr. Robert Young, Ph.D.,D.Sc.

A rotting body - Through live blood microscope work we can see that the inner terrain of most people leaves much to be desired. We are full of fungus, "bad" bacteria, parasites, and pathogens.

Leukocyte reaction - When we eat foods that have been heated to high temperatures, the body reacts as if we had introduced a poison. In a process called [digestive] leukocytosis, within the body there is a huge leukocyte reaction to deal with the unrecognized elements. This does not happen with uncooked foods (fruits and vegetables).

Trans Fatty Acids - Any fats or oils that have been tampered with are a major burden on the body, clogging up the arteries and leading to heart disease, cholesterol build up and death! Cooked oil, margarine, and animal fats are particularly destructive because they are not miscible in water. Since we are a water-based lifeform, this makes the metabolism of cooked oil difficult at best. Cooked oil, margarine, and animal fats are inflammatory to the tissues, harm the cardiovascular system, and accelerate the aging process. Cooking fats creates highly toxic trans fatty acids (basically rancid oil). Cooked oils are also the biggest cause of free radical damage.

Chemicals from agriculture - Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other synthetic (not to mention Genetically Modified Organisms) which are highly toxic to the human body.

Excessive Sugars - To take advantage of a human's natural sweet tooth, refined sugars seem to be added to everything causing mood swings, depression, and energy crashes to name a few. High amounts of processed sugar contribute to an acidic condition in the body which is dealt with by the body pulling calcium from the bones to buffer the acidic condition (which is a potentially life-threatening condition). So add processed sugar to the list of contributing factors to osteoporosis (eating a healthy diet that contains natural sugars from fruits does not pose this problem; a plant-based diet is a very alkalinizing diet).
