Rugged individualists we are in America. We can all do it ourselves right? Except when we are told that foods are ok when they are filled with preservatives that mess up our metabolism. Oh yes they taste sooo good. Then you find out there’s tons of crap in our food that yes triggers bad health. “175 billion spent by the food industry to lobby for food.” says Lori Dorfman of Berkeley School in California. Look a little closer and you start to see that the food we thought was wholesome is frought with junk. No matter how we think that Americans are lazy the wave of food commercials, bad fast food, and food infiltrated with chemicals that shouldn’t be there we are overwhelmed with having our food corrupted. And both political parties turn a blind eye to it.
So yes there is personal responsibility to get up from the table. Take a pinch of sugar instead of glop. Go exercise. Get up and move but to tell you the truth the food liars have had their way with us and know they can feed off the uneducated.
Where does this take you in terms of aging? We are preparing to have an enormous obesity problem with children the likes of something we have never seen before. Live longer they won’t actually be living a real life with the exception of taking diabetes medicine and other medicines.
Find out. Educate your neighbors. We can win back. The same way we let people know about tobacco and cigarettes.
