AS I SEE IT-A HEALTHY BODY
by Holly Mills
"What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God and ye are not your own?"
In today's world it sometimes seems as if we need a science
degree to keep our bodies healthy. We are bombarded almost daily
with the latest in miracle cures, wonder drugs, fad diets,
fitness crazes and of course, vaccinations. I find it interesting
that we have all of these so called fixes for a healthy body,
while at the same time, there is an epidemic of diabetes, heart
disease, obesity, cancer, depression, etc.
When it was announced a few months ago that there would
probably be a shortage of flu vaccine in the United States people
lined up in droves to get a shot! People who under normal
circumstances may not have even thought of getting a flu shot
were lining up just because it was announced there would he a
shortage. Travel agents were arranging flu shot getaways to
Canada, complete with a hotel package. What sheep we are? We
react so easily to what the media tells us. So few of us ask,
"why do I need a flu shot and what is in it anyway?" Or, "What am
I putting into my body that could be more effective that just
having a healthy immune system?" A large number of people have
become very sick after having the flu shot. The Vol, 8/No. 4/Fall
2002 of The Naturopathic Association of British Columbia reports
the following primary ingredients in vaccinations:
1. Formaldehyde (used in vaccines as a tissue fixative): The
legal maximum of each toxin, including formaldehyde, in each
vaccine dose is 0.025%.
2. Mercury aka Thimerosal (used in vaccines as a preservative):
Mercury is a highly toxic element which does not easily leave the
3. Aluminium EDF Suspected-cardiovascular or blood toxicant,
neurotoxicant, respiratory toxicant.
4. Phenoxyethanol (antifreeze): EDF Suspected developmental
toxicant, reproductive toxicant.
5. Phenol: EDF Suspected-cardiovascular or blood toxicant aka
Carbolic Acid, developmental toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver
toxicant, kidney toxicant, neurotoxicant, respiratory toxicant,
skin or sense organ toxicant.
6. Sulfate and phosphate compounds: Ammonium Sulfate: EDF
Suspected- gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, neurotoxicant,
respiratory toxican. Polysorbate: EDF Suspected skin or sense
organ toxicant. Sorbital: EDF Suspectedgastrointestinal or liver
toxicant. Beta-Propiolactone: EDF Recognized-carcinogen, EDF
7. Animal Viruses: Can be particularly alien to the human body.
The most frequently documented and publicized example is the
monkey virus SV40. This is harmless in mon keys, but injected
into a human, it can cause cancer, in the brain, bone or lungs.
I'm sure most people are not aware that these ingredients are
going into their bodies when they have a flu vaccination. It is
time we begin to be more aware of what we are do ing to our
bodies. We live in a very fast paced complex world. As I see it,
if we can try to live more simple lives by going back to God's
food Laws and laws for basic living we would do much better. Our
bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves and keep
themselves healthy if we would only let them. We must stop
looking for the quick fix and listen to our bodies. Putting
poisons into our bodies only causes them more distress. Keeping
our lives in close communication with our Lord and Saviour should
be our main goal. He will provide a peace and healing for our
body and soul that no medicine can provide.
"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, Bless his
holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his
benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy
diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth
thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy
mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the
