The Hundred-Year Lie – Book

The Hundred-Year Lie:

How Food and Medicine are Destroying Your Health
Author of book: Randall Fitzgerald

This is an excellent book! It’s fascinating and frightening at the same time, being told about the dangers that we have exposed ourselves to throughout our lives. Whether you’re ill or healthy, this is a must-read!

I didn’t know that mandatory vaccinations that we receive as infants/child had mercury in them to preserve better. That recently, girls are starting puberty at the age of eight, and even cases of three-year olds!! The author believes that there has been an increase in male breast reduction operations, since the ‘Pill’ is getting into our water system, and well, we drink that water!

You will be amazed at all the hidden and coverups, how the FDA approves of substances – more likely for business and profit, rather than the safety of the citizens.

We are seeing an increasingly number of diseases that were rare just 50 to 100 years ago. Of course, back then, maybe the person died before getting diagnosis or treatment. Perhaps people couldn’t afford medical treatment, so by trying to treat it themselves, the numbers weren’t in the records.

However,  we are seeing a spike in the last couple of decades, such as cancer, Parkinson’s, immune disease and heart disease. What I’ve noticed after reading this book is that the media is focused on the ‘cure’ of many diseases, but not much effort is put in the ‘prevention’ of them. Of course, health books and workshops tell you to eat healthy and get daily exercise, but if we are being exposed to hazardous substances without knowing it, those preventions may not be enough.

I believe that the harmful chemicals in our food, environment (pollution, paint, house-hold cleaners, etc), hygiene products (toothpaste, cosmetics, perfume, soap, shampoo, etc) and even medicine, all add up, and they build up in our system. With the type of lifestyle that most of us have, we don’t have much opportunity to detoxify our body from these toxins – and that’s when problems begin. There is only so much the body can handle!

Don’t try to change over night. It’ll likely backfire. Take small steps. Try cutting out canned foods from your cooking. Then, switch to safer make-up the next time you purchase your cosmetics. Use lemon and baking soda for cleaning around the house – not only will it be safer and cheaper, it’ll leave your place smelling fresh and natural. Little by little, things will change, and it’ll make it easier for you to adjust to the changes.

Read! & Good luck!
