God never intended for eating to be such a confusing burden nor a scare. Since the sale of foods is a big industry in this country, false promotional information is rampant because it is hard to monitor. There are a lot of words that are misunderstood—for example, “organic” or “chemical.” Everything you eat is a chemical, primarily carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. Organic simply means it contains “carbon,” and almost all foods are made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
Nutrition and dietetics are the studies of the chemicals that your body manufactures for you or that you consume which run the Krebs cycle to provide energy for each cell in your body. But we propose to you that we are not exactly what we eat, because the body manufactures many chemicals such as cholesterol, vitamin K, and vitamin D that you need. You do not have to eat these or many other chemicals for good health. For example, you do not have to eat bones to make bones, collagen to make collagen, or cells to have cells. The body makes most everything that is needed, and you supply the energy to keep the body running. But just like a car that mainly needs gasoline to run, it occasionally needs you to add motor oil or wiper fluid. For example, you need small amounts of vitamins each day in proportion to the food you eat, and yet these vitamins are found in the regular foods we eat if you eat a variety. As a general rule, if you eat correctly, you do not need to take vitamins.
