Principles We Support and Promote
When you combine all the elements, Good Health is just not that complicated when your approach is broad based and holistic in nature. High quality grass fed proteins, reduced carbohydrate, non processed or modified foods, the 90 essential vitamins, plant derived minerals, trace elements, amino and fatty acids and antioxidants necessary for rebuilding, sustaining, and maintaining the human body as it was designed.
The foods we ingest have a direct effect on the health of the body. There is a wide variety of health studies that have produced results we can learn from. It is the goal of THE NUTRITION AWARENESS CAMPAIGN to focus attention on that information. Information that can help individuals make informed decisions that can directly effect their health.
The staff of the NUTRITION AWARENESS CAMPAIGN have spent a great deal of time and resources researching and selecting the products we have chosen to support and promote. These products adhere to our principles and are of the highest quality, best tasting, Non-GMO Certified, Grass Fed, or Certified Organic products available. We are very excited to be able to bring these products to your attention, we hope that after trying them you will be as excited about them, as we are offering them to you.
Taking just a few moments to increase your awareness of the GM ingredients in your food and the effects they can have, has the potential to make a major difference in your overall health.
The “recommends that all physicians should prescribe non-genetically modified food for all patients, and that we should educate all of our patients on the potential health dangers, and known health dangers of GMO food.”
According to U.S. hospital discharges and ambulatory admissions records data, inflammatory bowel disease in the United States population has exploded by 40 percent since the introduction of GMOs. In addition, many other family practitioners are seeing a rise in food allergies and Gluten Intolerance..

Look for nutrient rich All Natural Grass Fed Meat or Dairy (including Whey) that has not been altered to unusable forms by excessive heat, hormone free, and has never been fed a genetically modified diet. These nutrient rich sources have higher levels of the Amino Acid Cysteine and increased levels of CLA, – “Conjugated Linoleic Acid”.
Reducing oxidative stress is a critical factor associated with Good Health and reducing the effects of aging. Help your body manufacture its own internally produced antioxidants like Glutathione,. You’ll be amazed at the difference.

Non processed – Non modified Organic whole foods that promote healthy digestion and avoiding those that have shown to disrupt digestive processes, increase intestinal irritability prohibiting vital nutrient absorption.
Restoring the body’s digestive track is the critical first step in restoring good health. It does not matter how many vitamins and minerals you take if your body cant absorb them efficiently.
The “Monsanto Protection Act” effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified organisms (aka GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) seeds, no matter what health issues may arise concerning GMOs in the future. According to the New York Times, Monsanto Director of Corporate Communications Phil Angel said, “Monsanto should not have to vouch for the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”(1) The FDA – Food and Drug Administration insists, “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.”(2)
Today, 1,000’s of physicians and nutritionists are, and they report a wide variety of health conditions improve after people make the change. Conditions: digestive issues such as gas, bloating, irritable bowel, colitis, and leaky gut, allergies, asthma, and eczema. Correcting digestion issues is the first step toward allowing the body to absorb the vital nutrients it needs to sustain and maintain itself as designed.
Good Health begins with a healthy digestive system. If you are experiencing stomach or gastrointestinal problems you might want to consider reducing or eliminating the GM corn or soy from your diet for a while. Researchers from Australia working with 2 veterinarians and a farmer from Iowa released a study published in the June issue of the peer-reviewed Journal of Organic Systems. Lead researcher Judy Carman is an epidemiologist and biochemist and director of the Institute of Health and Environmental Research in Adelaide, Australia. The study was conducted over 22.7 weeks using 168 newly weaned pigs in a commercial U.S. piggery.
For the past two years, a dedicated group of Connecticut citizens, called “GMO-Free CT,” have worked tirelessly in their attempts to pass a state law for mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. Finally this week, success was achieved! After a unanimous vote in the Senate, followed by an overwhelming majority vote in the House (134-3), and strong support from Connecticut Governor Malloy, HB 6527 was passed into law on Monday, June 3rd, 2013.
For this study, researchers prospectively analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study for a 22-year period. A total of 77,218 women and 47,810 men were included in the analysis, for a total of 2,278,396 person-years of data. Apart from sheer size, what makes this study superior to other past studies is the thoroughness with which aspartame intake was assessed.
The EPA – Environmental Protection Agency, has built a database of Developmental Neurotoxicants using Evidence from Human and Animal Studies. For this study, researchers analyzed data from mammalian studies, no in vitro studies were include. Studies using only the pure chemicals were included, no mixtures, no formulations, or tests using more then one compound were included. Please refer to the Evidence: Criteria for Assessment and Endpoints portion of the report for further clarification.
In 2011, doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec found Bt-toxin in the blood of:93% of pregnant women tested, 80% of umbilical blood in their babies, and 67% of non-pregnant women. Authors of the study speculate that the Bt-toxin is likely consumed in the normal diet of the Canadian middle class, as genetically engineered corn is present in the vast majority of all processed foods and drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup. Scientists also suggest that the toxin may have come from eating meat from animals fed on Bt corn. Apparently most livestock raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFO) or so-called factory farms, are fed on this corn.
World Health Organization warns that chronic diseases are becoming epidemic worldwide
Escalating rates of neurocognitive, metabolic, autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases cannot be ascribed only to genetics, lifestyle, and poor nutrition. Healthcare practitioners have wide-ranging roles in addressing environmental factors in policy and public health and clinical practice. The complex web of disease and environmental contributors is amenable to some straightforward clinical approaches addressing multiple toxicants. Widely applicable strategies include nutrition and supplements to counter toxic effects and to support metabolism; as well as exercise and sweating, and possibly medication to enhance excretion. Addressing environmental health and contributors to chronic disease has broad implications for society, with large potential benefits from improved health and productivity.
The KeytoGoodHealth : Its entirely up to you – UC Davis and Harvard Professors Agree
Individual choices when shopping (View the Non-GMO Shopping Guide) will be affected by education and perception regarding risk, as well as the cost, feasibility, and easy identification of alternatives (with honest, understandable, and meaningful labeling). All medical practitioners should be knowledgeable, and have the resources to educate and facilitate their patients making the best choices for their personal, family, and community health.(1)
Modifiable factors such as smoking, alcohol, lifestyle (e.g., exercise), and nutrition top lists of contributors to cardiovascular disease, cancer, and obesity/metabolic syndrome/diabetes. Indeed, a small, shrinking fraction of chronic disease is attributed directly to genetic makeup. Instead, gene-environment interactions are very plausibly postulated. Such observations led to development of the field of toxicogenomics, with Judith Stern of the University of California at Davis stating, “Genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger” and George Church of Harvard Medical School commented that the conversation has evolved from, “Here is your destiny, get used to it!” to “Here is your destiny, and you can do something about it!”(2)
We say, “Support Labeling Laws!” and promote education because we believe “The KeytoGoodHealth is NUTRITION AWARENESS”.
