Life, these days, has become complicated. A simple thing like eating has become complex. Long, long ago, the choices were few and simple. People just ate what was available in each season. But nowadays people have the choice of any kind of food at any time they want it. Technology has made it possible that sometimes you don't even have to leave the comfort of your home in order to buy your next meal or your groceries for the week. With today's fast-paced lifestyle, many people are also wanting everything in a jiffy, including their food - stuffing themselves with all sorts of "fast" or "instant" unhealthy foods, and with the powerful influence of media advertising, bombard their bodies with slimming pills or drinks and various "health" supplements to cut down on excess weight and to make up for the unhealthy choices that they make.
A lot of our foods these days have been so processed and deprived from life-giving vitamins, minerals, and digestive enzymes. Man stripped the life out of the wonderful natural foods God gave him by processing them so it will be "easily prepared and eaten", adding chemical preservatives to "last longer", artificial flavors and colors to look "more appealing", and synthetic vitamins to make them appear "healthy". We get sick and overweight because we eat more refined foods than we do natural pure foods.
