(NaturalNews) For a lot of people, food is just feed; its nutritional value doesn't matter. The structure, composition and potential contamination of the food product cannot be seen with the eyes. Food is often taken for granted, viewed as just calories. People learn to trust whatever is put before them in the grocery store as they look to the vague, modern food label for answers. The hurry of modern day pushes the population on.

Very few people realize the direct impact that food has on the systems of the human body, such as the nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, immune and digestive systems, among others. It's easy to just go by the basic Nutrition Facts food label glued on the back of a product which accounts for stereotypical content like carbohydrates, fat and protein. There's more to food than what can be seen, than what is labeled.

You are what you digest

Food science is even more complex than what is simply going into the body. People are not what they consume, but more importantly, they are what they digest. In the gastrointestinal tract, certain foods can help absorb or assimilate toxins, purifying the body. Other food may allow contaminants to penetrate the gut wall and infiltrate the blood. For example, residue of glyphosate has been found to act as a catalyst for heavy metals, welcoming toxicity.

On the other hand, colonies of good gut bacteria and essential enzymes can play an important role in efficient utilization of the nutritional content of food. Furthermore, whole foods have a greater tendency to retain metal content or mop up heavy metals from the body, moving them out as waste.

Today's food labels are vague, misleading

Labels do not reveal the average heavy metal content in foods. They do not warn of possible endocrine system disrupters. They are not honest about genetically modified ingredients and RNA strands that can inhibit protein activities needed for important cellular functions. They do not mention irradiation of the food product, pesticide chemicals absorbed or the depletion of important food enzymes needed for proper digestion.

Understanding food content, digestion and immune system can prevent cancer

Some think cancer just comes all at once or is inherited through the family tree. Cancer is really the body crying out for help inside. The liver may be overtaxed with toxins, crying out for release. Cells may be screaming, craving for a flood of fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Equipped with the right foods, the body can heal itself. The immune system cures the body of cancer. Cutting cancer off and burning it out is counterproductive and doesn't help the immune system. Sadly, these are the barbaric mainstream ways of dealing with cancer today. There's never been a more important time to understand the power of whole foods, the disruptive metal content of foods, the role of proper digestion and the equipping of the immune system to prevent disease.

Natural and organic labels can even be misleading

Some people look for health-minded labels when shopping, labels that include the words "natural," "vegan" or "organic." These label promises can also be misleading.

As the Health Ranger, Mike Adams, puts it, "Certified organic products do not account for impurities already in the soil. Organic is based only on the farmer's direct input. Although the farmer might not have used commercial fertilizers and sprays, the farm might be near a waste site."

As Natural News has revealed, there are many contaminants in foods that are slowly destroying people's quality of life. Many products tested are generally considered "healthy" but are really contaminated inside.

For example, the Natural News Forensic Food Lab has already found over 500 parts per billion (ppb) of lead, more than 10 pars per million of tungsten and over 2,000 ppb cadmium in rice proteins.

Low Heavy Metals Verified project helps consumers make healthier food choices

While the human body needs dietary trace minerals like zinc, iron, selenium, calcium, iodine and magnesium, it does not need metals such as lead, tungsten, arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, titanium and mercury. Toxicity can destroy the nervous system, welcoming dementia. It can spur inflammation, illness and cancer.

All foods aren't contaminated the same, however. There is hope to pursue higher standards. Through the Low Heavy Metals Verified project, the Natural News Forensic Food Lab is categorizing and grading food products based on their heavy metal content. Consumers are now able to make informed choices on certain products like protein powders, cereals and dietary supplements, among others.

Furthermore, the lab is documenting foods that help bind heavy metals in the digestive tract as they are more easily removed from the body as waste. Whole strawberries, chlorella and hemp protein have all been documented as being powerful for removing toxic trace metals. A full list can be found here.
