Deficiencies of vitamins A, D, K, B1, B3, B6, B12 and folate, and of minerals iodine, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, chromium and manganese can all contribute to mental instability and violent behavior.
A large number of Americans, living mostly on devitalized processed food, are suffering from malnutrition. In many cases, this means their brains are starving. Leaky gut and gluten sensitivities may exacerbate nutrient deficiencies. Gluten intolerance is strongly linked with schizophrenia. Making things worse are excitotoxins so prevalent in the food supply, such as MSG and Aspartame. People who live on processed food and who drink diet sodas are exposed to these mind-altering chemicals at very high levels.
Other ingredients in the food supply linked to violent behavior include refined sugar, artificial colors and flavorings, excessive caffeine and alcohol, and soy products. The toxic environmental burden includes mercury, arsenic, lead, fire retardants, pesticides, heavy metals and Teflon. Adding psychiatric drugs to this mix puts everyone at risk.
“The only solution to the mounting levels of violence is a return to real, nutrient-dense food. We must create a culture in which eating processed food is seen as uncool, and in which home cooking is embraced as a life-enhancing skill.” ~ Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation
Proverbs 4:14,17 Do not enter the path of the wrong, And do not walk in the way of evil-doers. (17) For they have eaten the bread of wrongdoing, And they drink the wine of violence.
1 Corinthians 6:12-14 All is permitted me, but not all do profit. All is permitted me, but I shall not be under authority of any. (13) Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods – but Aluahim shall destroy both it and them. And the body is not for whoring but for the Master, and the Master for the body. (14) And Aluahim, who raised up the Master, shall also raise us up through His power.
