Keys to Good Nutrition & Eating Healthy Include Avoiding Synthetic Vitamins From China

Daily Quote: "Most vitamin pills have vitamins and minerals in a proportion never found in nature. These inexpensive 'vitamins'(from the cheapest grades available) in many cases are chemically produced and are not natural. It is true that you are most assuredly deficient in vitamins and minerals. The best way to correct this deficiency is by juicing. The second best way is to take whole food supplements. These are not vitamin and mineral pills. Whole food supplements simply take organically produced vegetables and fruits and concentrate them into a convenient tablet [or powder]..." - Kevin Trudeau

China is Becoming the Largest Exporter of Synthetic Vitamins

Wondering what China has to do with and ? Let me explain. With all the bad press China has been getting related to the poisoned pet food scandal and the reported cases of toxic toothpaste and food, you may be wondering what’s next.

Put on your seatbelt because it may get much worse now that China is one of the largest exporters of and many drugs. Are yo aware that over 90% of all sold in the U.S. is made in China and that China makes the majority of Vitamins A, B-12, and E? Since the F.D.A. does not require country-of-origin labels for any of our drugs, foods, or supplements, there is no way for consumers to know where their vitamins come from.

Americans who care about their health should beware of the source of their vitamins and drugs because they may come from unsafe sources such as China. One major problem is that China suffers from the same conflict of interest that we are seeing here in America, namely that regulators have financial interest in the industries they are supposed to be inspecting and regulating.

So, what can you do about this?

Take your health into your own hands and create for yourself a healthy lifestyle based on eating live whole foods farmed locally. The best source of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes is, and always will be, fresh live grown in your local area. The second best source is juicing fresh organic produce. And the third best source is live whole food based nutritional supplements made from organic vegetables and fruit, such as "The Feast."

And remember, you can’t make up for a poor diet by simply adding synthetic vitamins and inorganic mineral as a kind of “magic bullet” approach to health.

Health comes from living a nutritious and
, which always begins with fresh whole foods that are loaded with the nutrition your body needs and can process.
