This is the concluding part of my research. You see, these prostate problems are rare in cultures that eat traditional natural foods. Men’s prostate health requires optimal natural health food choices. It’s not even a prostate diet – it’s just eating real food!
Poor prostate health results NOT from the fact that we live longer as the medical profession would have you believe, but from accumulating toxins from our modern devitalized “non-foods.”
The Jungle Effect that is my research in Bolgatanga has the life-changing answers to these important questions, and many more.
Whether it’s the heart-healthy Bolgatanga diet, with its reliance on guinea fowl and others and its extremely high levels of omega-3s, the age-defying Bolgatanga diet and its emphasis on leaves, free range guinea fowl local chicken, cow and fish, or the other diets explored herein, everyone who reads this research article will come away with the secrets of a longer, healthier life and the recipes necessary to put those secrets into action. Surprisingly, the clubs are fully packed and people blow alcohol yet they don’t get boozed easily this I realized partly because of the effect of the sun.
Bolgatanga free range Guinea Fowls provide a high dose of protein and all essential amino acids, good dose of vitamin A, vitamin B6 or pyridoxine, calcium, copper, iron in the form of heme, naicin or vitamin B3, phosphorus, potassium, tryptophan, zinc, and 60 to 75 mg of cholesterol. In Bolgatanga, surprisingly, cows are everywhere and also in their menu but these cows are free range ones likewise their chicken.
Unlike in Accra, the lifestyle and dieting is totally different. The craze for fast foods et al bombarded with artificial hormones graced everywhere. In fact, in Bolgatanga, the people don’t go overboard, they live within their means. For instance, I was giving my contact to someone and it was an MTN number quickly the person said “ Oh it is not Vodafone and I said why, “The people here in Bolga, we use health insurance number and I asked which one is that one and the person said Vodafone” so I was wondering whether Vodafone has a special package for the people in the north and they said anytime they buy Vodafone they double it for them and they can communicate on it for long hours so they termed it ‘health insurance’. So you see, they live within their means but not in Accra, people want to show off.
Do you really believe the claims that pesticides and preservatives are not harmful in small quantities? What about the cumulative effects? Could this be why we lose our health over time? Almost all supermarket food is toxic to your health. Hardly, I came across any Mall in Bolgatanga.
It just may take time before you notice prostate problems and most men will in due course have them. You see the Bolgatanga man is enjoying good prostate health but if these men now change their location for instance to Accra they will lose their good prostate health because they are going to be exposed to different lifestyle in Accra. This is what I called the ‘migration effect’ and risk of prostate disease likewise if any man moves from Accra and live in Bolga, he will also enjoy a good prostate health because he will adopt their way of life. This is also what I codenamed ‘Compensatory adaptation at its work’ our body is just a little bit like a computer, it does exactly what you tell it to do but not often how you want the computer to do. Humans program the computer and not the computer programming itself.
Look at our epidemics of disease from diabetes to heart ailments, from cancer to chronic illnesses to overweight problems to degenerative diseases. Most commercial food and fast foods are highly dangerous to you over time, causing major health problems and diseases. A prostate health diet is going in the other direction, non-commercial, slow foods, with immediate health benefits. You don’t have to wait to start to feel good!
There are highest rates of prostate disease occurring in those countries that eat the most animal fat and animal foods (which concentrate toxins up the food chain). There is also a problem with the food chain in the cities especially in Accra.
Poor food choices rob you of vitality and set the stage for a diseased body. It is just time that is needed for the effects to manifest…remember the poor frog who felt nothing until it was too late!
Every home in Bolgatanga is filled with Guinea Fowl so most often bars don’t even waste their time on guinea fowl as part of their menu. You see, Guinea Fowls are an excellent source of high quality protein and provide all essential amino acids. They are higher in protein and lower in saturated fats than red meats.
They provide a good dose of tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the production of serotonin having a calming effect on the body, contributes to a feeling of well-being which may alleviate depression, regulate mood, appetite, sleep/insomnia, blood clotting, wound healing, and muscle contraction; as well as cognitive functions including memory and learning.
They provide a good dose of vitamin A, vitamin that prevents night blindness, is needed for growth and cell development, maintains healthy skin, hair, and nails as well as gums, glands, bones, and teeth. May also prevent lung cancer. They provide a go`od dose of vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, vitamin that promotes protein metabolism, metabolism of carbohydrates and release of energy, proper nerve function, and synthesis of red blood cells.
They provide a good dose of calcium, mineral that builds strong bones and teeth, vital to muscle and nerve function, blood clotting, and metabolism. It also helps regulate blood pressure, prevent osteoporosis, and may help protect against colon cancer.
They provide a good dose of iron in the form of heme, needed to produce hemoglobin which transports oxygen throughout the body.
They provide a good dose of potassium, which gives a positive effect in lowering blood pressure. Also helps maintain fluid balance, promotes proper metabolism and muscle functions.
Guinea fowl, Adequate Sunlight and Prostate Cancer prevention in the Bolgatanga Diet.
You see, the health of their prostate could be attributed to the selenium, mineral that may help prevent prostate cancer and is found in guinea fowl. It also works with vitamin E to protect cell membranes from oxidative damage, free radicals. Oxidative stress account for over 70% degenerating disease in the world. This is the dark side of oxygen. Our cells do also rust like the way roofing sheet also rust so most of us once we are not getting the right nutrients we either rust inside or outside and our skins wrinkle also.
Amazingly Guinea fowl also provide a good dose of zinc, instrumental in metabolic action of enzymes, essential for growth and reproduction, support immune function. Zinc plays a key role in prostate health as the prostate gland contains zinc in high concentration and deficient of its plagued men to prostate conditions.
Guinea fowls provide a good dose of niacin, also known as vitamin B3, involved in DNA repair, and the production of steroid hormones in the adrenal gland. Niacin helps protect against pellagra, characterized by dermatitis, diarrhea, and mental disturbance. It is needed to metabolize energy, promote normal growth, and in large doses lowers cholesterol.
They provide a good dose of phosphorus, mineral that maintains strong bones and teeth, component of some enzymes, essential for proper metabolism.
They provide a good dose of copper that promotes iron absorption; essential in the production of blood cells, to connective tissue, nerve fibers, and skin pigment.
They provide a high dose of protein, necessary for the building and repair of body tissues, produces enzymes, hormones, and other substances the body uses. Regulates body processes, such as water balancing, transporting nutrients, and making muscles contract, keeps the body healthy by resisting diseases, and prevents one from becoming easily fatigued by producing stamina and energy. So you see how they are enjoying good health unlike you in Accra?
Of course, you in Accra don’t notice it as you are eating these disgusting foods. You may not even be aware what they contain until now. But little by little you are destroying your health, and could be soon looking for a prostate cancer diet.
And you will pay a price, either with a major disease or with a slowly deteriorating health for your elder years or an untimely death! Guaranteed.
So now follow the ‘Bolgatanga diet’ as I codenamed, free range cow meat, free range guinea fowl, free range local chicken, get adequate sunlight for Vitamin D, exercise, walk for healthy prostate health.
