America's Obesity Epidemic

America's Obesity Epidemic

 

Today's obesity epidemic is primarily the result of SAD (Standard American Diet) and the chemical assault we're bombarded with, due to the cozy relationship of Big Business and our Government:  of the 80,000 chemicals extant on the American market, the EPA has only required testing for about 200 of them and has partially regulated just five.

 

Many Americans eat "food-like" products, not food. Under the guise of "convenience", many ingest items devoid of nutritional value, dead food laden with chemicals.

I see so many Americans who are grossly overweight, yet malnourished, then I look at their grocery carts and I understand why...

 

Many of the chemicals, pesticides and fungicides that are legal in the United States are outlawed in most of the civilized world. Some of these chemicals modulate our hormones, another major cause of the obesity epidemic.

Endocrine disruptors are not only a leading cause of obesity, but also a major culprit in the increasing infertility of Americans.

 

It is predicted that half of Americans will be obese by 2030.  

 

So, if you are struggling with your weight, stop counting your calories, or fat grams and start counting chemicals!  Maybe it's time for convenience to take a back seat to Health...

I eat very little fast food by design not to look like the folks in your picture !

I try to load up on good fats daily (Olive oil & almonds) and two glasses of Red wine .
