Enzymes, Food and Cancer

What can enzymes do for you?

Digestive Enzymes help digest large food molecules into simple forms and deliver nutrients into the body. Enzymes carry away toxic wastes and purify the blood. They also deliver hormones by feeding and fortifying the endocrine system, balance cholesterol and triglyceride levels and feed the brain. All these factors contribute to the strengthening of the immune system.


The food that you eat makes enzymes overwork at the wrong place

Enzymes naturally occur in all raw and fresh foods and they support the body during the digestive process. When we eat cooked and highly processed foods there are no enzymes within the foods and your immune system drastically has to lower its performance and moves its enzyme into the digestive system.


Things that destroy the enzymes in the body

There are things that destroy or reduce the quality of the enzymes in our body.

Food additives
Pesticides
Alcohol
Coffee
Second-hand smoke
Stress
Accidents
Diseases


The danger sign of cancer

With all the years of eating cooked and difficult-to-digest foods the body becomes more and more acidic, therefore slowing down the activity of enzymes because they react negatively to variations of ph levels. Remember this: for all cancer sufferers their body is always acidic.


What you can do

There is a very simple solution. Eat more raw and fresh food and less cooked and highly processed foods. To prove the point primitive Eskimos eat raw meat and uncooked fish, yet they show no sign of circulatory disease. Uncooked meats contain high level of lipase, the enzyme that breaks down fat in the bloodstream and keeps it from clogging arteries. In a study conducted by Dr. Francis Pottinger over a period of 10 years he took 2 sets of cats and fed them only raw milk and raw meat. And he took 3 more sets of cats and fed them with cooked meat and pasteurized milk. The cats eating the raw food were disease free and healthy generation after generation but not the cats that eat cooked and processed foods.


Conclusion

Eating the right kind of food will lessen the strain on your enzymes as their main function is to fortify your immune system. Eating the wrong kind of food will make your enzymes work harder on food digestion and less on your immune system. In the end your body becomes more and more acidic – getting cancer is the only end result.
