Is your pressure cooker making you vitamin deficient?

How are you doing?

Today, I am writing this to teach you why our Ancestors never had diabetes and blood pressure.

The answer may be our cooking utensils. Now we are all using steel or aluminium vessels, but earlier we used to have different types of cooking utensils like clay, bronze, brass, etc..

Avoid Pressure Cookers:

While cooking, if the food doesn't get contact of air and sunlight then this food will work like slow poison in the system. This means that using a pressure cooker is very bad for a person's health. The pressure used to cook food softens the grains by breaking them. They are not cooked, but simply broken. So the food thus prepared is useless for the body - the molecules are damaged and the food becomes useless for the body. Diabetes, Bronchitis, TB, Asthma, etc. are some of the 48 ailments that have been directly traced to a pressure cooker by modern scientists at CDRI/CSIR labs.

Use Clay Utensils:

The best utensils for cooking are clay, kaansa and peetal or bronze in that order.

Researchers at the CDRI Lab in Lucknow (a central govt. body) have found that after cooking say Arhar daal in Clay pots 100% of the micro-nutrients originally present in the daal are still there. 93% are left after cooking in kaansa utensils and 87% after cooking in peetal or bronze utensils.

However, if the same daal is cooked in a pressure cooker only 13% of these micro-nutrients are left. Essentially what is left is worthless and unusable by the body.

The ashes that remain after a dead body is burned, contain these same 18 micro nutrients – the same as soil. No other natural thing contains all 18. We could have produced aluminium thousands of years ago. Our shastras have the techniques. But we used clay pots since it is the best from every angle. The longer an item takes to ripen in the field, the longer it will take to cook at home. Pressure cooking will make the food useless for the body.

Nature has designed everything with enormous attention to detail. For example, the top of the plants are eaten by humans and birds. While the middle part is for animals and roots the rest is for the earth herself.

When chronic diabetics who started doing all their cooking in clay pots, the sugar levels came down from 480 to 180 in less than a year. The TVS group family cooks all its food in clay pots. So does the Ambani family (clay tava).
