A large majority of our food today - is sprayed, processed, irradiated, harvested early, ripened
artificially or coated with toxic material to improve appearances. Foods that are marketed to
our children generally contain high fructose corn syrup, artificial fats, artificial trans fats and artificial sweeteners. Children and young adults are consuming more sugar, synthetic sweeteners and food dyes than ever before.
This sugar overload presents the double whammy of supplying empty calories while taxing any magnesium reserves that combat the toxins. It is no coincidence that this same group is being
prescribed more and more medication to deal with stress, anger, depression and brain fog. Without proper nutrition to the brain this organ will react in a myriad of mood and personality disorders.
The modern "industrialization" and "speed manufacturing" of our food has compromised quality - to the dramatic detriment of our mental health.,
The nutrient content has decreased dramatically in the past 50 years. You would now have to eat 10 bowls of spinach to equal the mineral content of 1 bowl, 50 years ago. Our health issues are increasing at a direct proportion to the soil depletion of nutrients.
The typical 15 -25 year old is particularly vulnerable to the pitfalls of bad nutrition. His /her diet typically consists of caffeinated drinks, such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, sugary foods, deep-fried foods and refined and processed foods. At this particular stage in life, when the young adult is experiencing puberty, the body is the most taxed and the most vulnerable. it also is the least fortified - which is one so many teenagers and young adults/college students seem to "act out" or experience "anxiety" and/or"psychotic" episodes..
The body’s ability to absorb minerals declines with age, so at particular risk for depression and ailments, are elderly people who do not eat an adequate/supplemental diet and who use drugs which deplete the body’s magnesium. Studies show that seniors take an average of 6 - 8 medications regularly. Excessive amounts of aspartame and MSG (glutamate) in the diet of elderly people may also cause of symptoms of dementia due to their direct effect, which is also magnified in magnesium deficiency. A shortage of magnesium can lead to many ailments, most notably - depression and anxiety.
Our mental and physical health ailments are in direct and dramatic proportion to the lack of nutrients in our soil and subsequently our food!
