Hello Fellow Overcomers - I get an e-mailed newsletter from Jordan Rubin, PhD He wrote several books, one of which is titled, "The Maker's Diet" He advises people how to recover from illness with healthy nutrition. He had an intestinal disease, Crohn's, which is thought to be incurable. He no longer suffers from it . . . all due to his changes in diet. _____________________________ Advice for Healthy Living Choosing Clean Meats Pork and dishes made from pork top many Americans' favorite food lists. Some people don't realize, however, that these foods come from an unclean animal — swine. The pig did not make the Creator's list of "clean" animals for a very good reason. Clean animals like cows and deer that chew the cud have an advanced digestive system that includes an alimentary canal and a secondary cud receptacle. They have three stomachs to process and refine their clean, vegetation-based food in a process that can take up to twenty-four hours. Pigs or swine, on the other hand, never limit their diet to vegetation. They will eat anything they can find — including their own young and sick or dead pigs from the same pen. It's no wonder, then, that pork contains poisons and by-products that can harm you, including the destructive enzymes cadaverine and putrescine. For your health, stick to the animals that the Creator chose as his ideal food for humankind.
