  Environmental toxicity: detrimental to health
  By Kelly Calabrese

   This column does not necessarily represent the views of The New Falcon Herald.

   Have you ever wondered why we get sick, or if we are taking the appropriate steps to optimal health? Most of us are not degreed scientists, medical doctors or holistic practitioners; we can easily become overwhelmed by the different schools of thought.
   
   It is important to become pro-active with your health, ask questions, research the Internet, ask for clear explanations of lab test reports and be very persistent! It is not the doctor’s full responsibility to solve your health problems; you need to play an active role in the solution to the problem. The doctor is not in your body so you need to give as much information as you can remember. By being pro-active, your health challenges will be treated for the root cause and not just the symptoms.
   
   There are six fundamental defects that cause chronic disease such as coronary artery disease, cancer, arthritis, Parkinson’s, asthma, food sensitivities and much more. These defects are responsible for the lack of optimal health in sick people and depletion in the resources of the health care system worldwide.
   
   The No. 1 cause of chronic illness is “acidemia,” which is the body’s critical PH or balanced chemistry. If the body’s PH is around 5.5, then the body is very acidic creating bone loss due to free calcium excess, chronic inflammation and connective tissue degeneration. This snowball effect will lead to many different health problems as time goes on. The optimal PH for the body is alkaline, 7.0. “Free radicals,” which breakdown the normal function of the body, cannot breed in an alkaline environment. “Free radicals” in an acid environment will create oxidative stress.
   
   Oxidative stress is a function of the environment. The pesticides in our food and water, toxic chemicals in our work environment, heavy metals such as mercury silver fillings in our mouth; and plastics lead to chronic illness. Oxidative stress is the breakdown of connective tissue that can lead to hernias, bleeding gums, varicose veins and much more.
   
   It is important to discuss with your doctor the possibility of the six fundamental defects, including “acidemia,” free excess calcium, chronic inflammation, connective tissue degeneration, oxidative stress and anaerobic metabolism in playing a detrimental role in your health. Treatment for “free radicals” is extensive. Anti-oxidant therapy is only part of the answer to chronic disease and getting to the root cause.

  Recipe of the month
  Sweet potato fries

   These fries are baked, not fried. By baking at a very high oven temp – 500 degrees F – and by heating up the pan beforehand, these fries get crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, just like a steak fry!

   Serves 4
   
   Ingredients
   3 sweet potatoes
   3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
   1½ teaspoons sea salt
   2 teaspoons sweet paprika
   1 teaspoon garlic powder
   1 teaspoon onion powder
   
   Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Place a nonstick baking sheet in the oven.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into ½ - ¼ inch wedges. Place in a large bowl.
  3. Toss the sweet potatoes with the coconut oil, salt, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix until evenly coated.
  4. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and arrange the sweet potato wedges in an even layer. Return to the oven for 8 minutes, remove and flip all of the fries. Bake for an additional 6-10 minutes, until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Serve with a side of ketchup or whatever!
