My buddy, Dr. Charles Adams (Chuck), of Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia has dedicated his life to health, not freedom from chronic illness, health. He calls himself Doctor Prevent and the first sentence in his mission statement is, "My job is to keep patients healthy and away from people like me." And, I know that's what Chuck is about 24/7.
Jesus said, "I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly." That's Chuck's mission also, at least the physical aspect of life, and he is dedicated to it with a dedication that he has paid dearly to maintain.
Yesterday, he sent an email with the subject line:
Good Food Sentence
This is the sentence:
"Corporate-dictated malfeasance at our federal agencies has resulted in food and agriculture systems that are knowingly killing people and the earth we live on." Joe Mercola, DO
The Mercola link above will take you to Joe's website. There are a lot of people who want to shut him up. Just like there were more who wanted to shut up Jesus than supported him, and though my friend Chuck doesn't talk about it, he could easily compile a list of his non-supporters. So to be fair, check out this link regarding Joe Mercola.
And, to be totally fair to all concerned, follow this link to Stephen Barrett, the author of the flaming attack on Joe Mercola, and you'll quickly discover that Doctor Barrett could be the inspiration for a con man in a Travis McGee novel.
The bottom line is, it's time to get our heads out of the sand and let our hearts lead. There's a wonderful, secret place, inside each of us. A place where the truth resides. When we slow down, back out of the race, and visit that place, we know what's true for us.
Re-read the Mercola quote. If you believe, really believe, there is ANY truth in the statement, don't you owe it to yourself to check it out? Could it be possible that corporations with the witting or unwitting support of our government are knowingly killing us and the planet?
Here's what I KNOW: On March 25, 2013, roughly ten months ago, I stopped eating sugar. Overnight a chronic, disabling, and worsening sinus condition disappeared. I'm not a conspiracy theory junkie, because I don't think human beings, as a group, can hold the focus necessary to run elaborate conspiracies. However, I do believe that one man or woman, can influence people to commit atrocities on others and themselves. The uncontrolled and unregulated use of sugar in the majority of "processed food" products is a perfect example.
Decide for yourself, don't let someone else do it for you - that alone will change your life.
