Many of us have been brought up to believe that we get nutrients from certain foods, just like in the 1950's, when doctors were advertising how safe it was to smoke cigarettes.
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away." This is not referring to nutrients in the apple that help us to stay healthy, but rather, it refers to certain enzymes in the apple that trigger digestive metabolic chemical reactions when these enzymes interact with our body chemistry. Different varieties of apples trigger different metabolic reactions to keep us healthy in different ways. The enzymes are key to keeping us healthy. When sailors got scurvy, it was the enzymes in the limes that triggered the production of a certain mineral, vitamin and enzyme in the body, thus restoring the health of the sailors.
Needless to say, foods that are prepared in such a way that the enzymes in them are destroyed, have little value in maintaining our health. Be wise. Learn how to cook your meals correctly. Join us tomorrow to learn how to do this.
