Health Conscious Diet Is The Environmentally Conscious Diet
In our mass-media influenced
society, where we are bombarded by images of physically fit, beautiful
people, there is an enormous interest in what the proper diet
is so that we may claim that hyper real body for our own. Diet
books were 9% of all book sales in 2003. The health spa and gym
industries also take in millions annually. However, even with
all this interest over what should be put into our bodies, the
American population suffers from specific diet related diseases
at a disproportionate rate in comparison to most other populations.
What can account for
such a negative statistic in the so called "most advanced
nation on the planet"? Could it be those ultra processed,
preservative riddled, artificially flavored & colored "dead"
foods we eat from boxes and cans? Or could it be the meat-centric,
saturated fat laden fast food we catch on our 30-minute, eat-it-as-fast-as-you-can
and get-back-to-work lunch breaks? It couldn't be. Thoey're FDA
a& USDA pproved so they must be O.K., right? 'Its' the same
food those people with the beautiful bodies oin the TV commercials
are eating .and they wouldn't lie, would they? Well, they are
lying. It is processed dead foods and the meatcentric diet which
is giving us and the planet a host of diseases, including heart
disease, diabetes, deforestation, soil erosion, certain cancers
and many others.
What diet fad do you follow?
Which book by which health guru or pseudo doctor is right? Let’s
scrap all that and get down to the basics.
