More and more research around the world proves that the following four eating habits not only damage our intestines and other parts of the body, but also severely and silently attack our brain:
- Live a long time with high blood sugar levels, even in the absence of diabetes;
- Eat too many carbohydrates throughout your life;
- Opt for a low-fat diet that lowers cholesterol levels;
- Eat a lot of that sticky protein called "gluten."
Here the explanation:
- About sugar: To start, you don't need to be diabetic to have high glucose levels.
Sugars are found naturally in almost all foods, dairy, fruits and even vegetables, so we don't need to add more. The problem is that most of the sugar in American food comes from sugars that are added to food products, such as high-fructose corn syrup (55% fructose, 42% glucose and 3% other carbohydrates), which since 1978 It is widely used for being cheaper, says neurologist - nutritionist, Dr. David Perlmutter.
There is the link: that excess sugar in the blood promotes an excess of insulin in the blood and vice versa. These excesses are toxic and generate lack of energy, irritability, anxiety, cognitive impairment and other brain disorders, regardless of getting sick or not of diabetes type 2.
Too much carb is hugely responsible for obesity and the metabolic consequences. When we consume them above body needs, the body converts them into fat that is deposited as adipose tissue under the skin (overweight) and visceral fat (which covers our organs).
In addition, carbohydrates are also responsible for the increase in blood sugar. "Two slices of whole wheat bread increase blood sugar levels more than two cakes due to the high glycemic index of wheat grown today," says the American cardiologist, Williams Davis.
Consequently, being overweight also raises blood sugar levels and, therefore, insulin levels. More excesses increases more toxins and inflammatory substances that slowly continue to advance throughout the body, including our brain.
- Low-fat food? Not so good!
Our brain is fat and does not work well without it, that simple.
Industrially modified fats and oils (or "trans fats") are toxic and harm the brain; and promote inflammations. However, the natural fats contained in eggs, butter, olive oil, as well as all oils rich in omega 3, are absolutely healthy and necessary for the brain.
On the other hand, low density lipoproteins (LDL) known as "bad fat", are not really bad, because their function is to transport cholesterol to body tissues, including the brain, which needs it to function well. The problem is that oxidation and excess glucose (or carbohydrates that is the same) are responsible for canceling the important role of LDL. Moreover, oxidized LDL is a key factor in the development of atherosclerosis. Then, LDL it is not the enemy, it is a victim, like our brain, of our poor diet.
Fat is the "gasoline" of the brain and nervous system, so it is not about reducing it but choosing the correct ones.
- Too much gluten:
Due to mutations and genetic alterations of modern wheat and other cereals such as rye, barley, spelled, kamut and bulbur, gluten has become a complex protein that is difficult to digest, and usually contains toxic peptides that cannot be properly absorbed by small bowel.
Gluten has the peculiarity of being a sticky protein. With so much genetic manipulation, the proportion of gluten in wheat and other cereals increased up to 10 times its value, from 5% to 50%. Today, foods than contains gluten cannot be digested totally, leaves the undigested residues stuck in the bowel, interfering with the absorption of nutrients, piercing it and damaging immune system (found in the intestinal walls).
All this leads not only to autoimmune, gastrointestinal, cardiac diseases, etc., but also affects the brain due to its connection with the bowel. Additionally, the inflammatory and toxic substances which seep into the blood through the perforated intestine, reach the brain, inevitably.
As Hippocrates said, "Everything in excess is opposed to nature." But is not only too much sugar or carbohydrates, it is also the excessive alterations of food industry.
