God made Natural food versus Man made food

God-made food over man-made food.

It is easy to identify some natural food but sometimes it is hard to tell if a food  is natural or man made,  we have outline some  tips below to assist you.

Package foods – Not all but most  are package are man made

Canned foods –  Most probably is a man made, so natural foods are canned but addictive are added to help preserve food which are not healthy for the body.

 

Man made food is part of the causes of some diseases and ailment many people suffer today in our society.

  • HYPERTENSION
  • HEART DISEASE

Heart attacks are the leading cause of death and are mostly caused by poor diet leading to fatty deposits on the arteries. Fatty deposits narrow pathways and lead to heart attacks.

Many diseases we suffer today are as a result of diet and our environment. This have reason since the food industry started producing process food.

 

Many diseases can be avoided if we stick to the wholesome food that God provided for us to eat. It just takes knowing what to eat and a determination to stick to those foods.

 

Many man-made foods can be disguised as healthy options. Example

 

  • Fruit Juice– Fruit is healthy so it’s easy to believe that fruit juice is too. It’s important to know the truth about juice. First, some juices don’t even contain fruit. Instead they are chemically flavored to taste like fruit and sweetened with table sugar. Even juicing a whole fruit removes its fiber, leaving only the fruit’s sugar. It’s always better to eat the whole fruit rather than drink  the juice.

 

  • Artificial Sugars– Marketed as a healthy alternative, artificial sugars are just chemicals that confuse the body. They are so unhealthy that many countries ban them.

 

  • Processed Meats– The word processed should throw up a big red flag. These meats are often in a package and are not healthy.

 

  • Processed Foods Labeled Vegan, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Fat-free, or High Protein– Don’t let labels deceive you. Junk food is junk food regardless if it disguised with healthy sounding terminology. For example, if a food is manufactured in a way to be fat free, it often has added sugar to restore its appealing taste.

 

 

God made natural food have not been tampered with, these give us the natural nutrient our body require. Our body is able to easily digest any natural occurring food.

How to identify Natural vitamin

How to identify Natural vitamin

Some consumers  are unaware some vitamins on sell  in the market are synthetic, not natural.  I have made a list  on how to identify Natural vitamin.

Vitamin and mineral supplements may contain labels that are too complicated for you to understand.

 

Some manufacturers of commercial vitamin and mineral supplements add synthetics to vitamin products

Steps To Identify natural from synthetic

 

 

Step 1 – Look at for phrases like 100% plant based not 60% or 40%

 

Step 2 – Look for the  ingredient source, were there naturally source e.g, fish, vegetable, citrus etc Usually when you cant find this information it means it is synthetic  thats why it was not written.

Step 3 –  Any trace of  these salt ….. acetate, bitartrate, chloride, gluconate, hydrochloride, nitrate and succinate.

Step 4 – Look for letters like  “dl” that appear before the name of an ingredient indicates the supplement is synthetic.

 

 Step 5 – Look at for  organically derived ingredients

 Step 6 – If you cant distinguish, ask a pharmacist

what you dont know about capitalism

Capitalism….

The global elites, bankers, venture capitalist all profess  most countries  run a free market, free trade, where the prices of commodities is determine by demand.

No backdoor price fixing,  price competition, bla blah bla… but the last financial crises left many scratching their head…..

When the big banks were bail out, yes… bailed out in  the so called capitalist system and the small business man  and woman were left to ruse.

What kind of capitalist system bailed out some institution and not others?

Picking winners and losers……

Capitalism should bring about competition not mergers?

why so much merger and the big companies taking over smaller rivals. Capitalism is suppose to regulate this?

 

A  renowned writer wrote Capitalism doesn’t care if people get rich or go broke. It only offers the promise of riches as lure to get people to invest money, the purpose of a lottery is not to make people rich. The purpose of a lottery is to make money by selling tickets. The lottery only offers the promise of getting rich as a lure to get people to buy tickets.
REGULATION AND PRICES

In a true capitalist system there is  choice of  possible variety of products offered at the lowest possible prices so that the public has the greatest possible number of product choices at the lowest possible prices.

Entrepreneurs hate low prices and they hate price competition but these are the fruits of capitalist system. 

Direct conflict between fruit of a free trade system and capitalist.

Capitalists are in business to make the most possible money. They want to charge the highest possible prices not the lowest ones. They don’t give a damn about saving people money or benefiting society.

In fact, capitalists don’t want to save their customers any money at all. Quite the opposite. They want to take as much of their customer’s money as they can get.

Capitalists only lower prices when market factors force them to. Every capitalist wants to eliminate price competition for their product.

Every producer wants to charge not the competitive price but rather the monopoly price, the highest price that the market will bear.

This is where Regulation plays a big role

The worst enemies of capitalism’s basic principal of free-market competition are the capitalists themselves.

 In a true capitalist list there should be no monopolicing an industry or price by a company because regulation is suppose to prevent this.

Lack Of Standards

In order to have price competition the consumer must be able to quickly, easily and effectively compare and choose between similar types of products from different manufacturers.

Certain  standard of products and services are required in a true capitalist system

One of the goals of capitalism is to create better products. A race to the bottom destroys better products and encourages worse products, exactly the opposite of the goals capitalism was created to achieve.

Without price competition and a level playing field capitalism can’t work, no picking of losers and winners.

Why is Africa and part of Asia not allowed to participate fully in the Capitalist or FREE TRADE economy? protectionism?

They are not  allowed to export their products but can import a lot of  rubbish and outdated goods.

Some  capitalist countries still dont allow imported goods in some sector, fearing it will destroy certain industry in their country

 

Why are Venture Capitalist allowed to  make  money by increasing market power through take-overs, mergers and acquisitions that don’t necessarily result in better performance of service or product. ( where the regulators?)

 

How come when big companies make huge profit and  only the shareholder gets paid well and not the staffs? 

 

What kind of capitalist system shareholders feel no pinch when company go boost but employees looses  their  pension contribution.

If  you think this is capitalism think again…….

Food supplement good or Bad

Food supplement good or Bad

Taking Vitamin supplement is not part of our daily routine, there has been a general belief that it is good for us. Most people presume our daily meals don’t have the contain all our daily recommended nutrients

But recently there have been studies and peoples experiences. The held belief that vitamin tablets is good for us is now been question.

The health bodies have been criticise for lax regulation etc

Even food experts are divided, some are for and other against..

Besides the obvious role of marketing, why do so many of us allow ourselves to believe that vitamins are good for us with little proof

There’s no denying that prolonged deficiency of certain vitamins can lead to illness and disease. The real question, though, is whether vitamin supplements are good or bad?

 

If you eat a diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, there’s a good chance you already reach your suggested daily intake. And even if you eat a less-than-stellar diet, many types of processed foods are fortified with vitamins and minerals.

Some individuals at risk for a vitamin deficiency due to a poor diet or a preexisting medical condition should consider supplementing with a multivitamin to address that deficiency.

Different studies have come out with different findings , some below

Is it natural or synthetic Vitamin

–  individuals who took the daily supplement had an increased mortality rate .

–  women who took multivitamin supplements (vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc) increased their risk of developing skin cancer .

–  the likelihood of developing lung cancer among smokers .
excessive amounts of vitamin E increased patients’ risk of heart failure .

–  excessive Vitamin E supplementation significantly increased the risk of prostate cancer .

If taking in moderation and natural supplements it can be good for some people, but experts and research have shown excessive intake can lead to harmful consequence.

Synthetic Vitamin versus Natural Vitamin

Differences Between Synthetic and Natural Vitamins

NATURAL VITAMINS

We all know vitamins are good  for  our health and to the proper functioning of our bodies.

Natural vitamins are derived directly from plant material containing the vitamin, not produced in a test tube.

The natural  vitamins come in packages with other vitamins, enzymes and minerals that control the way the body recognizes, metabolizes and uses them to make what it needs.

Lack of Vitamin can  lead to different diseases.

Sources –  Food, sunlight, plants,  etc

 

SYNTHETIC VITAMINS

However, a lot of people are not aware of synthetic Vitamins.

What is a “Synthetic” Vitamin?

Synthetic Vitamins are made in the laboratory to mimic the natural vitamins, the ingredients are not plant based.

Many synthetic vitamins lack the transporters and co-factors associated with naturally occurring vitamins because they have been “isolated.”

 

Isolated vitamins can’t always be used by the body, and are either stored until you obtain or create the nutrients required to use them effectively or are excreted.

Synthetic vitamins are also devoid of necessary trace minerals and must use the body’s own mineral reserves which may lead to dangerous mineral deficiencies.

 

Example – The synthetic version of Vitamin E is often referred to as the dl- form. The dl- form is a combination of the d-form (which, by the way, is the naturally occurring form) and the l-form. No big deal, right? Well it might not be, except that the body doesn’t actually use the l-form- we excrete it! I must note here that this applies only to vitamins and not amino acids or sugars. Fat soluble vitamins in their synthetic form are especially dangerous because they can build up in your fatty tissues and cause toxicity. The reason that the synthetic form is more dangerous is because you get a high, concentrated serving of the vitamin rather than the amount that you would get from a food-based form.

Did You Know? More than 95% of all the vitamin supplements sold today fall in to the synthetic category.

nigeria poultry farm profit

Make Profit Chicken Farming

Make Profit Chicken Farming

Chicken is a good source of protein and is much healthier to eat than red meat which is high in cholesterol.

The production of chicken is called poultry farming.  Poultry farming business is highly profitable if it is properly run under acceptable methods and conditions conducive for the birds. Each type of livestock farming, poultry included, follows specific operational principles if they must run profitably. Failure to follow this guidelines can result in huge losses.

Decide on the type of poultry farm you want

There are a number of things you can do as a poultry farmer, these include:

·      Breeding chickens for sale

·      Producing eggs for sale

·      Producing chicken meat for sale

·      Producing poultry feed (chicken food) for sale

·      Processing eggs and chicken meat for sale

 

To achieve success in poultry farming, a lot of work is involved. 

Some guides below to assist you run a poultry farm successfully and make profit.

Be warned  “it is not a lazy man’s business.”
i. Start with day-old chicks than with older chicks.

ii. Start with about 500 day-old chicks if  you are interested in the production of eggs and selling off the layers when they are old. It takes about 18-20 weeks (5 months) to feed and nurture the birds before they start laying eggs. On the average, 100 birds will produce a minimum of 80 eggs daily. So if an entrepreneur starts with 500 birds and all birds  500 survive, they will be getting a minimum of 400 eggs daily, which is good output. Once the birds start laying, they will do so for 74 weeks, after which they become due for disposal. However, the birds could still lay after 74 weeks, if properly fed.

iii. Choose a proper housing methods – DEEP LITTER SYSTEM and THE BATTERY CAGE. Both methods are good, provided that proper hygiene is maintained.
In the deep litter system, the pullets are placed on bare floor that has been covered with saw dust.
Careful consideration is given to the method applied in feeding the birds. Removing the dropping usually poses no problem. You can either pack off the entire saw dust with the dropping or cover the dropping with fresh saw dust.
Normally, the day-old chicks are housed using the brooder method before they grow up. They can be transferred to the battery cage when they approach their egg-laying period, or left in the deep litter floor.
The battery cage housing allows for the droppings to fall on a separate platform directly under the cage. It is uniquely constructed to make feeding and drinking quiet easy for the birds. The birds feed on marsh, which have been properly compounded. The marsh should be given according to an expert’s advice.

iv.  Avoid inappropriate feeding which can lead to excess fat, which can result in mortality. In fact, defective feeding can lead to low egg production. In fact, it has been experienced in the past where a whole stock of birds produced no egg, due to wrong feeding.
v.  Health of the birds is important. If the necessary drugs are not properly administrated, poultry farming can turn into a nightmare.

Take seriously expert advice on the type of drug to administer on the birds as well as the dosage.
When birds are hatched, there is a vaccination time table to be followed; if this is not done, the farmer that buys this stock from the source may have serious problems.

The farmer should take pain to do it by himself or hire a qualified and honest consultant / veterinary doctor in order to get the desired result.
vii. Be prudent poultry farmer must keep a close watch over the cost of running the farm; he must avoid unnecessary spending, which tends to eat away his profit. The labour, feeds, drugs and other input costs must be in line with standard farm requirements, otherwise such expenses should be ignored.

All forms of wasteful spending must be eliminated, no matter how insignificant the amount may seem to the management.
viii. The farm manager should be a qualified person with a wealth of experience in poultry management. The management of the farm must be able to plan ahead its activities and be able to compare actual performance with the drawn plan in order to apply control measures whenever a deviation from the original plan is observed. It must not be an armchair management that cares less about what may be happening to the birds at any given time. The management should be sensitive to the conditions on the farm and be in firm control of all situations. The ability to act promptly and take the right decisions at the right time is indispensable for the farm manager.
Viability

ix.  The market for poultry products is quite enormous. It is noteworthy that all parts of the birds are marketable including the feather and the droppings (for manure).
x. Hygiene Deficiency
There is a minimum hygiene condition that must exist in any poultry farm if the birds are to remain healthy and produce maximally for profit. The poultry farm must be kept clean always; the droppings should be cleared on time before they constitute an agent of disease

xii. Security/Location
A poultry farm must be established in a secured place to ward off enemies of birds, such as rats, soldier ants, snakes, wild birds, etc. Most of these enemies are agents of disease that could lead to an epidemic on the farm, and they kill the birds directly as well.

When picking a location, consider

  • affordability
  • costs of transportation of eggs and meat low? Is it close to the market and your buyers?
  • bad smell from the poultry farm.

xiii. Marketing
A marketing plan is absolutely necessary for successful commercial poultry farming, as any farmer ignorant of his or her marketing needs is bound to run into serious losses and eventual failure. It will be ridiculous to start poultry production without knowing when, where, how and to whom to sell the fowls, eggs, feathers and droppings as they are produced. We cannot talk of profit if the meat and eggs have no ready market. Eggs have a very short shelf life and if they are not sold quickly, they will go bad, and no one is interested in buying bad eggs.

Also, birds not sold at the appropriate time will be fed at an extra cost that may make the business unprofitable. Therefore, adequate marketing strategies are needed to sell all the poultry products at the appropriate time and prices.

xiv.   Increased awareness of health issues associated with red meat has made chicken consumption a great alternative for many and Chickens mature very quickly, meaning the business has the potential to generate high returns on your investment in a short period of time.

xv. This may not be a big market, but in the interest of using the entire animal, when it’s molting season, don’t forget to collect the feathers! This is especially true to more flashy breeds and roosters- whose hackle and tail feathers are very popular with crafters.
