In our culture, white is typically thought of as a color denoting purity and goodness, but in nutrition, more often than not, white is “evil.” That’s because whole foods are typically loaded with color, which is an indication of the wonderful variety of nutritional compounds they contain. When food is refined and processed, it usually winds up becoming an isolated “white” substance.
Millions of people in the world are suffering and dying because of these harmful influences. With 80% of our population dying of degenerative diseases that are directly linked to the consumption of these processed foods, they are truly causing an apocalyptic destruction of our health. In the book of Revelation, The Bible warns of the four horses of the apocalypse, which represent conquest, war, famine and death. I'm here to warn you of the four white horses of the nutritional apocalypse.
So, what are these “four white horses of the nutritional apocalypse?” I've written a series of articles on these white menaces and what you can do to defeat them in your own personal diet. The four categories are:
- Refined Carbohydrates (Read How to Defeat Refined Carbs)
- Refined Oils that are full of Trans Fats
- Refined Salts and Chemical Preservatives
- Refined, Processed, and Pasteurized Milk
If you take a look at the top ten most popular foods for most Americans—soft drinks, pastries, hamburgers, pizza, chips, rice, bread, cheese, beer and French fries—you’ll see that nearly all of them contain these four nutritional evil-doers.
Besides being the primary culprits in the major killers—heart disease, cancer and diabetes—these processed foods also contribute to obesity, tooth decay, osteoporosis, arthritis and a host of other ailments that destroy the quality of life for millions of people.
