6the body a templeIt is interesting to note that the top 5 major religions in the world: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism all teach in their holy writings or traditions that the body is a temple to be taken care of so that God may clearly communicate to them through a pure mind.The majority of these major religions also teach that one’s diet should abstain from all unclean foods and in the highest realm of most of these faiths, the ‘purists’ subscribe to a plant-based diet

13The 4 REasons they made this request... The Food was offered to idolsThe Food was unclean i.e. had blood and fat which Hebrews did not eatHe knew he faced a crisis and needed a sharp intellect to discern between the true and the counterfeitHe knew the original diet and understood the Owner’s Manual
14life is in the bloodThe majority of the taste of all animals or their byproducts is from their blood or fat content.Our bodies were not made to digest these products...as we will see more in a minute
15the owner’s ManualIn order for a piece of machinery to work to it’s optimal ability it must maintain the standards and guidelines set forth by the manufacturerIn the case of what we should eat, we only need look to the Origin of our Species and Science
16FRom the dust...The oldest known writings in the world date back to the time of Creation known to be about 6000 years ago.As the Scriptures describe it, man was created from the dust of the ground. The dust of the ground is made of a number of vitamins, minerals, elements, and nutrients
17...from the groundIf we were created from these various elements then to maintain optimal health, we need to continue to eat them for healing and proper growth.The only way to get these key elements is from the source, the same place from which we came, the dust of the ground
18plant based dietBelieving this would mean that we were created to eat a plant- based diet consisting primarily of fruits, nuts, grains, and vegetables as mentioned in Genesis 1:29But our internal organs explain this as well as we will see in a minute
19you are what you eat?The food we put into our body is what will make up our blood supply.Is the food you are eating turning into the proper nutrients, minerals, and elements that your body needs to function optimally?
20MeatPigs are known to host large concentrations of parasitic ascarid worms in their digestive tract-difficult to cook outBeef, Chicken, and Fish are seeing levels of contaminants and disease at unprecedented rates
21Animal ByproductsCheese, Milk, Eggs are coming from the same animals that are becoming more diseasedThe correlation of cholesterol and heart disease is on the rise
22the Real issueThe real issue is the digestion of animal products in the human bodyAs we will see, we were not made to digest second hand proteinAs in the case with the China Study, protein has been documented to feed cancer
23Where does all the waste go? If we are eating foods that should not be even considered food and since the body cannot use these for life, where does all of this waste go?
24Where does all the waste go? Sticks to the walls of arteriesSticks to a layer just under the skinExits through one of the 7 channels of elimination.
25Where does all the waste go? The majority of the bulk waste goes into the colonIf this waste does not quickly pass, then the waste will begin to reabsorb into the blood stream. This results in obesity, disease, and sickness
26how long should my food digest? Dr. John Harvey Kellogg wrote in ‘The Itinerary of a Breakfast’ that you should not have more than 3 meals in your system at any given time.This means that when you eat your next meal, you should also have a bowel movement.1 Meal = 1 Bowel Movement
27Transit (digestion) time The transit (digestion) time of flesh is typically more than 48 hours in humans because of our low HCL make up in our stomachsIn animals like a Lion, the HCL is many times greater and can break down flesh in hours rather than days
29following the owner’s Manual The primary reason for a plant-based diet is that plants will break down into the minerals, vitamins and nutrients that our body can actually use to sustain life.These substances are derived most optimally from their original source- plants.
30True or Counterfeit?There is a life giving diet that we were created to enjoy and thrive on consisting of living foods derived from plants.There is a counterfeit diet, derived from dead and processed substances, that we are eating and it is literally and spiritually killing civilization as we know it.It is best to get our nutrition from the source rather than second hand from animals after they have already derived the primary benefit
