The Health Benefits of Pineapple and Papaya and the Dangers of GMO

by Holistic Chef Barry

(The Best Years in Life) Fresh Pineapple and Papaya individually or together often is part of a good earth recipe for the life giving enzymes that helps to break down and digest proteins in our foods.The bitter tasting leaves of papaya are edible and all bitter foods in nature are liver tonics. The center core stem of the pineapple has the richest source of enzyme power for the human body called bromelain.

Research shows health benefits of the bromelain enzyme of pineapple for the following conditions:

1-Arthritis and joint pain
3-Autoimmune diseases
4-Cancer (Immune system support )
5-Inflammatory Bowel Disease
6-Sinus infections
7-Sprained ankles
9-Kills parasites and helps with weight loss

Enzyme rich pineapple and papaya have the fastest transit times in the human body so for good digestion Chef Barry recommends eating the fruits first off of your plate followed by the vegetables then the fats and animal sourced foods last to prevent your gut from fermentation of your food chime and to assist your production of hydrochloric acid production which is essential for nutrient break down and absorption of your foods.

The living foods rich with enzymes will help the human body manufacture the master antioxidant called Glutathione that is found in every living cell of the human body. In fact all cooked foods is incapable of making glutathione inside the body. So it is important to combine raw living foods with your cooked foods at every sitting.

The Standard American Diet SAD is deficient in the essential mineral magnesium and the best whole food source is all dark leafy greens and sea vegetables sea weed (Rich in Iodine) that will also provide you with Vitamin K as well to protect your heart muscle. All these foods go well with papaya and pineapple.


Papaya's many health benefits as follows:

1-Healing benefits are many. The seeds and leaves will kill intestinal parasites
2-Anti inflammatory and immune support making it anti cancer
3-Enzyme rich with the enzyme papain aids in digestion and is rich in the antioxidants C- E and provitamin A Beta carotene the skins of organic papaya are edible. Excellent weight loss food.
4-Very high in the antioxidant Lycopeen that is also found in tomato.

First please note that papaya from Hawaii is a GMO product and best avoided. Thailand where Chef Barry lives is land of papaya and is also a GMO country but last reported the Thai Government eventually abandoned the papaya GMO project. Prolonged animal studies conclusively showed tumor growth in GMO treated mice.

Now a new study links GMOs to Cancer, Liver/Kidney Damage & Severe Hormonal Disruption

The study has now been published by Environmental Sciences Europe. (source). The chronic toxicity study examined the health impacts on rats of eating commercialized genetically modified (GM) maize, alongside Monsanto’s NK603 glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup.

The study found severe liver and kidney damage as well as hormonal disturbances in rats fed with GM maize in conjunction with low levels of Roundup that were below those permitted in most drinking water across Europe. Results also indicated high rates of large tumors and mortality in most treatment groups.

The republished study also has a section describing the lobbying efforts of GMO crop supporters to force the retraction of the original publication. This is scientific fraud at its best. The authors express how the previous retraction was “a historic example of conflicts of interest in the scientific assessments of products commercialized worldwide.”

The real problem with agricultural chemicals including the highly toxic round up weed killers used by Monsanto is the following. Plant life is by nature very systemic right down to their root systems. These roots absorb everything in the soil and thus the chemical is part of the plant internally locked away inside the cellulose fibers of the adult plant. This is how Monsanto's glyphosate- is transferred into the human body. In the west traces of the GMO chemicals are now detected in mothers milk.

Multiple countries all over the world have been banning GMOs and the pesticides that go with them. Thailand is a GMO country with 9 Monsanto offices in the Kingdom at present. However Thailand's closest Buddhist country friend Bhutan bans GMOs in their Kingdom.

Nevertheless, look for organic papaya for this food as your first choice.
