Vegetarian Diet Destroys Toxins

It has been known for a long time that detoxification and cleansing your body of harmful toxins is one of the many advantages of any vegetarian diet.

It can be argued that human beings are not carnivorous. The carnivores in the animal world have sharp teeth and sweat through the mouth, not through the pores.

As human beings, we have rounded or squared off teeth as do the herbivore animals (similar to the teeth of a deer for instance) and we sweat through the pores, not the mouth of course.

The build up of toxins in the colon and in the arteries is a by-product of a carnivorous diet. Not only do our bodies struggle to digest the meat, a carnivorous diet, along with the many processed foods we eat on a daily basis actually cause interference with the digestive system, and as a consequence also throws off our elimination processes. The efficiency of our digestive system is critical and will affect our overall health.

What happens is over time harmful bacteria and toxins accumulate and will create a feeling of sluggishness and low energy, and possibly other digestive disorders will come into play such as colitis and irritable bowel syndrome.

Switching to a vegetarian diet introduces more dietary fiber into our systems and this fiber, along with the vastly more nutritional vegetarian foods, will kick start the digestive system and will benefit every other system in our bodies too. With a vegetarian diet the body is cleansed. Your blood, your mind and your organs become clearer, and you will also lose weight without trying.

Toxicity is of much greater concern now than ever before. We are exposed to an amazing number of toxins, in the air, in the chemicals we use everyday, in the water and then we have radiation from various sources. The last thing we need to do through our diets is ingest even more chemicals via hormones and chemicals in meat and milk, and the veritable array of chemicals in refined foods (take a look at the ingredients in your maple syrup - there is no maple involved).

As a result, the incidence of many toxicity related diseases has increased as well. Cancer and cardiovascular disease are two of many. Allergies, obesity, and many skin problems are among others. In addition, a wide range of symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, pains, gastrointestinal problems, and immune weakness, can all be caused by toxicity.

When you start a vegetarian diet, your body starts detoxifying and throws off these toxins and cleanses itself. There are now many vegetarian food substitutes too, such as bacon and beef substitutes that taste like the real thing.

So a vegetarian diet is worthy of consideration for anyone who wants to stay healthy for the duration. The advantages are obvious. You will feel better, look better, and lose weight without even trying.
