So I have been doing some research on the food that we eat.
I have figured out a few things.
1) The fast food, and processed food companies are making a killing on killing us. They start pushing their addictive food stuff on us when we are young. They are adding sugar and chemicals into almost everything we eat. Breakfast cereal, harmless, right? Oh noooo look at the label, even some spaghetti sauce has sugar listed as one of the top 5 ingredients.
2) Diet soda should be called death in a can, but, then no one would buy it. It can make you gain weight, given you headaches and some research suggest it can even help cause MS.
3) Our children are suffering from this fast food lifestyle. I have myself seen this. I have seen young children weighing 100 #, when they should be in the 30-35 wt range. And I don't think the parents are all to blame. If your child sees other children eating the crap and then sees thin, happy, laughing children on tv eating it, they want it. Some parents are not well educated in nutrition. I was not and my mother was not. I would not be surprised if some of the ADHD is not diet related, but, I am not sure, I have not researched that (yet).
4)After we get unhealthy because of the junk we eat, the drug companies are always there to help out. How many of us are on blood pressure medication, diabetic mediation and arthritis medication. I know that a lot of this is heredity, but some is lifestyle.
5) It appears less expensive to buy the junk then the good stuff. At McDonalds you can get a double hamburger for less then a banana. Something is wrong here.
Ok off soap box now....Hope I didn't step on any toes. I am just very afraid for myself (since I was a junk food junkie) and for our children. Especially for the children, they deserve so much more.
