I don’t mean to put you off your sandwich but…..”Give us this day our daily bread” should come with a health warning which reads -‘As Long as It Isn’t White.’ White bread will mess with your mood amongst other things.
What happens if you drop a piece of bread in a glass of water? You got it! The bread swells to twice maybe 3 times its normal size. Now consider the body is made up of around 60% water.
In theory, bread should be healthy, made with grains etc. But these days it goes through a process before reaching our grocery store shelves, that makes it unrecognisable. I’m talking about White Bread – the end product after all the nutrients have been destroyed and a variety of dangerous chemicals added. Wheat is a seed like any other, and seeds are well known for supporting a healthy bowel. This means there’s no build up of poisons and we can think clearly as the mind is sharper. Wheat has an outer covering (bran), an embryo (wheatgerm), and a fuel supply (the endosperm). But to create white bread the bran and germ are removed leaving just the soft endosperm then milled into flour. Because the endosperm contains mostly carbohydrates, they immediately break down into single units of sugar causing dangerous spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels. Flour used to make white bread is bleached with benzoyl peroxide. This has no purpose other than making the product more visually attractive to customers.
Here’s another vital piece of info & please feel free to google it! Benzoyl Peroxide creates something called ‘free radicals and benzoic acid’ which all together contribute to DNA damage, aging, contact irritation, bloating discomfort, weakness, and malaise. When ingested, the agents can cause headache, nervousness, nausea, and vomiting.
