The Standard American Diet is not working for us. Half of Americans over age 50 have cancer, and many don’t know it, despite warnings to get frequent checkups.
Why is this happening? It’s fairly simple, actually, if you study what we eat here now, what our lifestyle is here, what government and big business are about here, and what people in other countries eat, where heart disease, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimers, ADD and cancer are not running rampant.
Are you ready to know the truth? There’s nothing to buy, this is not a setup. In fact, our bent towards products and services is part of why we are in this mess.
Fact #1: We eat more calories and more animal food vs. a century ago, and vs. the typical developing nation in Asia or South America, and we exercise less.
Fact #2: Animal fat is less damaging to our health than animal protein. Therefore products such as skim milk and low-fat sandwich meats are just as harmful to our health as full fat products.
Fact #3: Food additives such as pesticides, hormones, colors, flavors, preservatives, etc. are used more in animal foods than in other foods, and cause significant damage to our bodies, through toxicity, hormone overload, sodium overload, and sugar overload, to name a few.
Given these facts, if someone wants to have fewer health problems, they should immediately eat fewer calories, lower the amount of animal foods consumed, and buy organic and local when they do consume animal foods.
Exercising more, improving eating habits, reducing stress, and visiting a holistic health professional can also make a significant difference.
These changes will also reduce the negative impact on our environment, by saving clean water, reducing fertilizer usage (which depends on fossil fuels), and lowering the impact on climate change through reduced methane emissions from cows and pigs, and gasoline use.
Finally, improved health will lower your health bill, keep you more productive at work, and help you get off medications, while reducing worry about illness and premature death.
