3 Tips For Living In Good Health

"For your health, eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day", "For your health, eat less fat and less salty", "For your health avoid alcohol abuse": for those who watch TV, you are subjected daily to these redundant and unnecessary advertising messages. No one will say to themselves when they hear that "Yes, they are right, I'm going to do a little jog! "In addition, these messages are far too simplistic and incomplete, note the irony when they dare to put" Eat less fat and less salty "at the end of an advertisement for McDo's new burger, it always makes me laugh!

Here are 3 REAL tips to keep you fit and healthy for as long as you can, tips that you will NEVER see on TV.

1) Follow the basic nutritional advice:
The most important thing is to follow the dietary recommendations I mentioned in my previous article "What can (still) eat today? "

Here is a brief reminder:

Do not go to fast food: it's not new, it's the worst thing to do. See Americans ...
Stop food stuffed with dyes, preservatives, full of "E": chips, Curly, sodas, syrup ...
Ban foods with high glycemic index: classic baguette, white pasta, white rice, refined sugar ...
Eat low GI foods: vegetables, legumes, oilseeds ...
Avoid gluten, lactose and casein: pasta, bread, cakes, wheat flour, animal kinds of milk, cheese, butter, margarine, yoghurt, cottage cheese ... All these foods promote intestinal permeability, contributing to the development of an impressive number of
diseases: from schizophrenia to osteoarthritis, through rheumatoid arthritis, ... all kinds of pathologies.
Eat fruits and vegetables at every meal: take them organic because some are highly processed in conventional agriculture. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants etc ... Vary, all are good for health. To quote a well-known slogan: "Eat them all! "
Limit consumption of red meat and large fish: Red meat contains antibiotics, toxins, many saturated fats. If you take it, it is essential to take it bio (because the chemicals love to store in the fat). For fish, avoid those at the top of the food chain (so the bigger ones) because they have a high concentration of heavy metals. You can eat white meat several times a week but prefer organic.
Eat organic eggs: very good for health, consume them without hesitation!
Optimize your intake of Omega-3: olive oil, rapeseed, flax, oily fish (sardines, salmon, mackerel ...). All these foods are good for the heart, the memory, the mood. Omega-3s even help with weight loss!

2) Avoid Bisphenol A
Bisphenol A or BPA is a chemical compound used in combination with other elements in the constitution of plastics and epoxy resins. It is found everywhere: in plastic containers, the coating of metal cans (including cans), hard plastic water bottles (found in companies, in waiting rooms ...), receipts and until recently he was still found in baby bottles. Bisphenol A is very toxic and unfortunately, it penetrates very easily into the body.

Many studies have proved its harmfulness: it weakens tooth enamel, is probably responsible for many cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, it acts on the brain, on the reproductive function (it is an endocrine disruptor). I advise you to take a look at the Wikipedia article, the list of risks is very long.

The first thing is to NEVER heat a plastic that contains food.
It is extremely toxic because bisphenol A goes directly into food (yet I often see people putting plastic dishes in the microwave oven: never do that!). When you buy your products in the store, beware of plastics. Do not worry, there's a simple way to spot Bisphenol A: on the packaging, you can find the recycling logo having a triangular shape with a number inside.

Identifiers 3, 6 and 7 indicate products that are very likely to contain bisphenol A. Avoid them like the plague! Replace canned vegetables with frozen vegetables for example. They are long-lasting and have as many vitamins as fresh vegetables.

Note: to my knowledge, only for broccoli is freezing destroying an interesting compound, it is sulforaphane, an anti-cancer molecule very useful to prevent this pathology.

Bisphenol S (a compound that is even more toxic than bisphenol A), as well as phthalates (used to make plastics soft), are also harmful to health. All I said earlier is to avoid bisphenol A, bisphenol S and phthalates. It is important to point out that these three chemical compounds are ubiquitous in the environment and they are fat-soluble, that is, they preferentially store in fat. This is one more reason to limit your consumption of fatty meat.

3) Flee The Aluminium
Aluminium is much talked about, especially in deodorants. Indeed it is a very toxic metal (especially neurotoxic) that is not supposed to be found in the body. If the number of cases of Alzheimer's disease is increasing, it is not a coincidence.

Indeed, aluminium is found everywhere: deodorants, food additives (E173), tap water, vaccines, aluminium foil, cooking utensils, stoves, pans, medicines ... 

My advice is simply to avoid using or consuming all products containing aluminium:

Deodorant: Do not buy antiperspirant. Take a deodorant without aluminium or parabens.
Do not buy food containing E173: any way you now know that no industrial product should be bought.
Tap water: use filtration means.
Vaccines: they raise many controversies, especially concerning their harmfulness.
Cookware: Just avoid those made of aluminium
Stoves and pans: do not take it in aluminium, simply.
