The Richest Country in the World is Fast Becoming the Most Unhealthy…
Jamie Oliver, noted chef and humanitarian won the $100,000 TED Award for his campaign against one of the greatest epidemics plaguing the health and well-being of the children of America.
Then, watch Dean Ornish’s, Ann Cooper’s and Mark Bitman’s short videos below.
“Feeding Kids to Death” “Agribusiness”
“In this fiery and funny talk, New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what’s wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it’s putting the entire planet at risk.”
The problem is augmented by the profit motive of corporations who thrive on the processing and chemicalization of food stuffs.
They are inured to the bottom line – mainly, profits. Corporations exist strictly to increase their bottom line.
The law recognizes corporations as “individuals” and “persons.” Unfortunately, corporations are devoid of conscience, caring, human decency characteristic of “real” individuals and persons.
Thus, corporations will do anything they can within the scope of the law to take healthy food stuffs and maximize it’s money making potential – mainly by huge increasing the levels of the cheapest and most addictive ingredients:
Worst Additive Offenders
GMO Corn Syrup Solids
GMO Corn Sweeteners
GMO Soy Products
GMO Soy Additives
Each of the above is extremely cheap, satisfying and filling, addictive, and/or craving-causative.
The more sugar you add, the more salt you can add without offending the taste buds. Both add considerable weight while being extremely cheap.
Very good for the bottom profit line.
Very BAD for the health of all those who eat these “foods.”
Worst Food Offenders
Processed Pizza (no real cheese)
Breakfast boxed, bagged cereals
IN a word, Easy foods. Or, Instant foods.
The best foods to eat are:
Fresh vegetables, raw with a simple dressing
Fresh fruits, raw.
Whole grains steamed or sprouted, served raw or with a simple sauce.
Lean natural organic humanely raised meat, small amounts.
Occasional treats are fine, as long as they are “occasional.”
It’s that simple.
