We keep hearing “all things in moderation”, and other silly statements meant to placate us into thinking that we can eat our cake (meat, dairy,) and be healthy all the same. It’s a nice thought, but is it true? Is the “typical” American diet keeping you in good health? Well, it certainly doesn’t seem to be, given the amount of people with diseases that are caused by the “typical” American diet. Frankly, our food choices are killing us.
Diet accounts for the following diseases: cardiovascular; diabetes; obesity; and most (if not all) cancers. So, you would think that your doctor would let you know that you need to make better food choices. However, that is usually not the case. Instead, we run into the typical “all things in moderation” type of advice. When it comes to choices that actually cause death, there shouldn’t be any discussion of “moderation” in consumption of them. We’ve been told for years that we should not smoke, since that leads to death, why not the same with food?
Since I am a cynic, I more than suspect that this negligence on the part of the entire health industry has more than a little to do with profits. After all, the following people/corporations profit from your illness: doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and drug companies. They are making a tidy profit off of you, and Americans are getting sicker at a younger and younger age. This is simply ridiculous and really should stop.
I’m leaving some links for you to follow in order to educated yourselves, since the health industry isn’t going to do it for you. Change your diet, change your life!
