I've missed writing. Tonight at the Raw Health and Happiness Society meeting I told Blanche that I would get back to writing soon.
Tonight at the meeting we talked about how added salt is poisonous to the body. Added salt includes table salt, Celtic salt, Himalayan salt, etc.; none of these are organic salts that can be used by the body. When consumed it passes through our system unchanged and it wreaks havoc on our physiological functions.
Several of us shared that we know that when we choose to eat raw food preparations that have added salt we're compromising our optimal health. I notice that I feel headachy and my lower legs feel swollen after eating raw food that has salt added to it.
Added salt is a cytotoxin; it kills living cells on contact. That's why our body craves water after we consume salt; the body is trying to dilute the poisonous effects. The people that sell salt are going to tell you that it is good for you.
Yesterday, I went to the Galaxy cafe to eat breakfast. I ordered a peppermint tea(a compromise), a glass of fresh orange juice and two large fresh fruit salads. As I ate there was a couple with a baby seated near me. The baby was about 9 months old. The mother laid out a plastic placemat for the baby to use and then she proceeded to tear up squares of processed cheese for the baby to eat. That was the baby's breakfast! It's practically criminal! I felt very saddened by the sight. They probably believe that the processed cheese is providing calcium and protein for the baby. That baby should have been eating my breakfast, sans the peppermint tea!
