No. 895


There is an old joke that most educators have heard about Johnny bringing home a lot of homework. One evening after school, a neighbor girl was over visiting one of his siblings and she observed all the papers that he was reading. When she learned that it was homework she said, “Why don’t they put him in the slow group?”
Well, to be honest I have been in the slow group for most of my life and, after reading something my friend J.L. Abbott sent me a while back, I could better understand why. After you read what I am going to share today, perhaps you will have a better understanding of which group you are in.
I might add that I had never heard or seen this information before. To really grasp its meaning you will have to apply the process of visualization and see it in your minds-eye. The article begins, “It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish, all before making a human. He made and provided what we need before we were born. The following vegetables are best and more powerful when eaten raw.” And here is the reason for my title. We are such slow learners.
Again, see these vegetables in your minds-eye as I describe each one and the medical benefits they each contain. “No. 1: A sliced carrot looks like a human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye, and yes science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes. No. 2: A tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure hearted blood food. No. 3: Grapes hang in a cluster and have the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
“No. 4: A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function. No. 5: Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like human kidneys. No. 6: Celery, Bok, Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23 percent sodium and these foods are 23 percent sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. (I didn’t know that, did you?) These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
“No. 7: Avocados, eggplant and pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them.) No. 8: Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility. No. 9: Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.”
Well, how did you do? Are you slow or fast? Welcome to the club.
