The Magic Of Green Magic

Proto-col's Green Magic

Recently the Formula One racing circus put on a great display at Monte Carlo with Australian Mark Webber winning an incident packed race. But how would Webber’s car perform if his team had filled his car with the wrong fuel?

The problem here is our bodies are just the same. Fill them with the wrong fuel then they will not perform at all well. And yet that is what most of us do everyday.

In 1960 the chances of a woman developing breast cancer was 1 in 20 but recent figures show this has reduced to 1 in 8 today. In the United Kingdom alone the cases have increased by twenty five percent between 1975 and 2004. The male sperm count was recorded as 100 million per millilitre in 1940 but only 50 million in 1990. There have been claims the figure has now reached 5 million and predictions that many men will be infertile within fifty years.

The chances of suffering from cancer have been revised from 1 in 3 to 1 in 2 recently.

Diabetes is becoming a worldwide epidemic with the World Health Organization predicting the number of cases to rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030. Equally the WHO predict the number of cases of obesity are set to rise from the 2005 figure of 400 million to 700 million in 2015.

With such alarming health statistics, we have to start examining what we are all doing wrong. It could well be what we are eating. In 1940 a serving of spinach (approximately 180 grams or a cupful) contained 150 milligrams of iron now it is quite likely to be two milligrams.

Do We Know What We Are Eating?

One reason for the lack of nutrients in food now is mass production. We have to produce so much food so quickly and at the lowest cost that the nutrients do not have time to accumulate. The ground also becomes depleted. Fertilizers are used to improve production but these only help to leach the vitamins and minerals from the ground.

Meat production animals fare little better. Frequently they eat less grass, instead consuming hay and silage or artificial foods. In order to improve their health and quality of the meat the animals may well also be full of steroids, antibiotics and other drugs. Compassion In World Farming estimates that two out of every three farm animals in the world are on factory farms.

Factory farmed broiler chickens are grown quickly, sometimes in dreadful conditions. It is estimated ten percent have cancer and twenty percent are disabled. Once again they are pumped full of drugs, including antibiotics. This triumph of economics over health means we are unsure exactly what we are consuming.

Clever marketing ensures we consider biscuits, cakes and sweets as ‘treats’ or ready meals as convenient. We all buy into eating too much salt, sugar and fat. The fat is frequently artificial which the body is unable to process, turning it into body fat, and this, combined with our less active lives can cause heart disease.

Time To Eat Correctly

Governments recommend the average person should consume five portions of fruit and vegetables a day but recently the World Health Organisation has revised this up to eight to fourteen portions. The true requirement is likely to be twenty however.

How can we change our own lives to combat this? Clearly twenty portions of fruit and vegetables a day is virtually impossible to take in so the likely solution is to reject processed and unnecessary foods and eat more organic fruit and vegetables, ideally from your own garden or perhaps from local farm shops and farmers markets. You can then top up your requirements by using high quality, natural dietary supplements alongside your healthy diet.

There are many such natural dietary supplements on the market but one that caught my eye was Green Magic produced by Proto-col. This comes in the form of a powder for ease of absorption and contains all the vitamins and minerals needed to ensure your intake reaches the required standard.
