The Greatest Myth in History
By Bob McCauley, ND
Disease disguises itself in old age. Disease wears old age as a cloak of deception. Old age does not cause, nor does it result in disease. Not keeping your body properly hydrated, living on a cooked/processed-food diet, not exercising, etc., that’s what leads to disease. Not getting old. And although we may have a genetic propensity towards certain disease – all disease can easily be overcome by proper diet, bodily hydration and vigorous exercise. Our concept of
Most people will shake their head at the idea of living to be 90 or 100 years
old because they have only seen cooked foodists who are that age and for the most part, they are not a pretty sight. Half the people over age 85 are senile and have lost touch with reality to some degree. Most cannot walk without assistance, nor perform basic maintenance on themselves, such as bathing and caring for their own nails. Most are incontinent and need assistance when going to the bathroom. They are sacks of bones and blood, mere shadows of what they once were. When someone dies of “old age” it simply means that they had so many diseases it could not be determined which one killed them. Given these circumstances, I would not want to stay alive to that age either.
However, if I was able to still perform all those tasks, including doing most of the things I did when I was in my twenties, I would want to stay alive another day as much as anyone else. Why would anyone ever want to die at a certain age? If you believe you probably will want to die before the age of 100 simply because you have lived long enough, then why don’t you believe that at 30, 40 or any age for that matter? We are conditioned to think this way because we have our health when we are young. It is brainwashing passed from generation to generation without the knowledge that it even is brainwashing, a lie unwittingly forced upon us that we all believe to be the truth. And the myth is passed to us by the people we most trust, our parents and grandparents. We are programmed to believe that we will be lucky to live a “long life” of 90 years, but that the last few years will be spent dying of some disease until we inevitably succumb. This lie we believe in must be wrecked.
We need to abandon the preconceived notion that death by disease is involuntary and there is nothing we can do to change it. Our life will be as long and healthy as we choose it to be if we live on a Raw-food Diet and keep ourselves constantly hydrated and invigorated with daily exercise.
