Are You Making Yourself Sick With The Food You Eat?
Your body will tell you when you have eaten food that is not fit for the body or you have eaten food that has been exposed to filth spread by unsanitary conditions. These unsanitary conditions can be exposure of food to insects and rodents that carry filth and disease.
Most sickness that you feel in the form of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, dizziness, and headache is from eating meat that was not designed for the body. The most common foods that are not fit for the body but yet are found on buffets and menus around the world include (but are not limited to) pork (bacon, ham, pepperoni, etc.), shrimp, crab legs, lobster, clams, oysters, catfish and other meats not listed here, but are listed in scripture. (See scriptural Reference below). Though a meat item may say beef, turkey, chicken on the package you must watch out for other ingredients and body parts that are added or used to make the product. Casings such as collagen may be made of pork instead of beef or lamb. Many meats are being injected with juices derived from pork, clams or items that are not made for man to consume.
Many foods are now being flavored with flavor enhancers such as monosodium glutamate that causes headaches and other sickness that closely resembles the effects of eating an unclean meat. You will find these flavor enhancers in most chips, dips, soups, prepared foods and in most fast food restaurants. Read the label and ask questions at food establishments before you eat them to avoid the sickness associated with these flavor enhancers.
Other signs and symptoms of sickness caused from specific bacteria may include: weakness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, double vision, paralyzed eye nerves, difficulty speaking, trouble swallowing, paralysis that spreads downward, respiratory failure, and death may be caused from contamination of food with such things as botulism, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., and Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni), Escherichia coli (E. coli).
More information will be forthcoming on both clean and unclean foods in addition to food contamination caused by insects, rodents and food adulteration.
