Case Study 1
During recent talk with my family, one shocking thing was discussed about fast food habit.
Some of my nephew’s friends are migrants. Well-to-do migrants from other states. Settling down in our city. So these families often eat outside. Almost everyday, something comes from outside. Junk or almost junk.
These kids don’t really like home cooked food now. Addicted to the taste of junk.
Case Study 2
One couple working in IT in pune I know.1 Gas cylinder works for almost 1 year for them. You can imagine their usage.
Why are we so addicted to junk food?
Our gut microbes dictate what we eat. If you have a healthy gut, the microbes will direct you to foods that are required by your body for fitness. However if your gut microbes are disturbed they may start cravings for food that destroys your health. Parents of autistic children noticed food cravings in their children which aggravated their conditions. They then devised diets that controlled this and led to improved behavior. Many of them blamed the vaccines and the consequent use of antibiotics for vaccine after effects for this. They have been traditionally ridiculed for their ‘strange theories’ that don’t fit the industrial model of medicine. However researchers are now confirming what these ‘unscientific’ parents discovered.
Now my dear doctor friends debate with me that it is safer to give antibiotics to avoid risks. What risks? Why are we so fearful and fear mongering? Why can’t doctor sense right condition and avoid unnecessary antibiotics and by that protect GUT microbes?
Or at least, think and prefer pause on your eating cravings. Even toxins rich food cooked at home is worth compare to junk/restaurant food.
Reason? When cooked at home, it is full of microbes suited to you and family. So relatively safe. Outside food?
All random, chaotic microbes with your food. You never know when they will alter your eating habits and control you like slave. 🙂
