According to recent conducted researching, it was discovered that there is astrong relation between a certain type of protein and neuro-degenerative diseases, including, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The worrisome part in this discovery is the fact that this protein exists in the food we consume.
This is what scientists say regarding this matter, quoting:
“Prions are misshapen yet durable versions of proteins normally present in nerve cells that cause like proteins to misfold and clump together, starting a chain reaction that eventually consumes entire brain regions. In the past 15 years, scientists have learned that such a process may be at work not only in mad cow and other exotic diseases but also in major neuro-degenerative disorders…”
Half of the patients suffering from Alzheimer’s have these prions like proteins, and according to a research released in 2011 TDP-43 were traced in 25 to 50% of patients.
How can TDP-43 enter in our body system?
Much evidence reveal that this type of protein is commonly bred into most of the livestock animals, specifically in those ones raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFO’s). Sadly enough, it is a fact that most meat displayed in stores and served in restaurants are from CAFO’s livestock, so even if you want to avoid this type of meat is impossible as it is everywhere around us.
What are CAFO’s?
They are huge warehouse facilities similar to factories where animals are bred and fed with an entirely unnatural diet consisted of genetically engineered grains containing glyphosate, which is mixed with antibiotics. Unfortunately, a large percentage of these foods offered to the animals have in their content animal byproduct which is completely unnatural and obnoxious specifically for animals like cows that need to be grass-fed, and not to be eating other animal products. In this way, prions are being filtered through into the meat that we eventually consume thus elevating the percentage of Alzheimer’s disease in people.
