This Is Your Body on Processed Food.
Artist Stefani Bardin, TEDxManhattan 2011 Fellow, shows us her latest project — using a “smartpill” to reveal how we digest differently processed foods.
Stefani produces videos and immersive, interactive installations that explores the influences of corporate culture and industrial food production. Her current project works with gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University where they just completed the first ever clinical study to use the M2A™ and SmartPill devices that look at how the human body responds to processed versus whole foods. She is an Honorary Resident at Eyebeam Art +Technology Center in New York and teaches in the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design and in the Food Studies Program at The New School for Public Engagement.

ELI SAPHARTI’S STORY: (from www.2minutestogreatness.com)
“At 42 years old and I am in the best shape of my life. Just a little over 4 years ago I was in the WORST shape of my life. Not only physically, but also emotionally and mentally. I believe these all go hand in hand.
In 2008 I had ballooned to almost 300 lbs standing at 6′ and my body fat percentage was well over 40%. My blood pressure was elevated, I felt tired all the time, if I walked a flight of steps I would lose my breath, my joints were hurting, and I was always getting some type of flu or cold.
Around March of 2008, shortly before the end of an almost 18 year marriage, I had what many would call an epiphany. One day I looked at myself in the mirror and couldn’t believe how unhealthy and just plain fat I had allowed myself to get. At that moment I knew I had to do something to change this downward spiral and begin setting the right example for my 3 children. As I thought about past attempts to lose weight I realized that the “quick fixes” and fad diets I had tried, although successful short term, were not going to work if I wanted to make LIFE-LONG changes.
That is when I decided to try a different approach and came up with my ONE STEP AT A TIME = SUCCESS! approach and principles. Small, consistent changes allowed me to acheive the body I have today 180 POUNDS with 10% body fat. I am also an avid runner having finished my last 10K in 47:43 and my last 5K in 22:01 and two half marathons in 1:49. All being my personal best times. My drive and passion today is in helping inspire, motivate and teaching YOU that YOU too can achieve a healthy and strong body YOU can be proud of, no matter how much weight YOU have to lose.
JOIN TODAY and allow me to be your own personal weight loss coach. When I was losing my weight I thought of how nice it would be to be able to get motivated, inspired, educated, pushed, pulled, recipes, eating plans, exercise plans, grocery lists, and someone who just cared enough to contact me on a regular basis to help me reach my goals.
WELL…that is what this site is all about.
I will be your personal weight loss coach. I will call you regularly, I will text you daily, I will send you video clips weekly. I will add articles, videos, recipes, grocery lists, meal plans, exercises and exercise plans each week for you to follow as well as anything and everything you need to help you reach your goal!!!“

In random order….
1. In 2009, a study was produced by nurses with 3,256 participants. For those who drank at least 2 servings of diet soda daily, it revealed a 30% drop in kidney function. (ref: Supplement Relief)
2. Recent studies show that a diet-soda habit can increase your risk of stroke, osteoporosis, and type two diabetes. Early studies show diet-soda drinkers are 61 percent more likely to have a stroke, have , and are more at risk for developing type two diabetes. (ref: Fit Sugar)
3. As early as 1960 aspartame was determined to be a dangerous chemical and the emerging research years later only served to affirm the true nature of this artificial sweetener. Over the years, aspartame has been found to create holes in brain tissue, adversely affect the brain and nerve development in the fetus, cause cancer, migraines, headaches, seizures, convulsions and even retinal damage. With this amount of negative findings, aspartame should have been removed from the market years ago! (ref: natural news)

4. Diet sodas are acidic. Excess acid can be hard on the digestive system. For the generally healthy person, this only becomes a problem with excessive intake of diet sodas; however, those with gastrointestinal problems, such as acid reflux, indigestion or ulcers can exacerbate their conditions by consuming only small amounts of diet sodas. Acidic beverages are also hard on tooth enamel, which can cause decaying or rotting of the teeth, leading to cavities. (ref: livestrong)

click> Mark Hyman, MD: Three Hidden Ways Wheat Makes You Fat.
“…. Yes, gluten is a real problem. But the problem is not just gluten. In fact, there are three major hidden reasons that wheat products, not just gluten (along with sugar in all its forms) is a major contributor to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, depression and so many other modern ills….”
For more information about Dr. Mark Hyman: www.drhyman.com
From Gabriel Sanders: What an amazing, educational, and controversial article! So many questions about the truth of wheat products and gluten, health, how doctor’s treat digestive ailments, (the history of) food, and our own nutrition are brought to the surface and answered, while some are left open-ended. Capital One asks “what’s in your wallet?” I ask: “what’s in your stomach?”

From Gabriel Sanders: Whether you are a believer in a single Creator or not, there is truth that the creation of all of the living things on Earth came from the Earth. We: humans, animals, plants, and things, are all connected. The following was sent to me via email. If the word/term/name “God” bothers you, either let it go or fill in the blank, and pay attention to the amazing health facts of the foods that grow on Earth and how they connect to the parts of the body they support:
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’d need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw. We’re such slow learners…. God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body! God’s Pharmacy! Amazing!
A sliced carrot looks like the 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.
A tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has 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.
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 (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, bok choy, rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, 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 (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
Oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
