Here's a quote from the endorsement page of Sally Fallon's book, Nourishing Traditions by Doc Atkins himself. He put it pretty succinctly:
"But what she (Ms. Fallon) pointed out is that independent producers of food--such as people who present us with meat, poultry, eggs and butter--provide the lowest profit margin in the industry. People who put out junk food...have an incredible return on invested capital because they are putting out low-cost item and making a very high profit."
This is the reason most all the food in the grocery stores is junk; food stuff that comes from abused animals and an abused world. Money/profit rules in the hearts and heads of many people and they resist finding a healthier way to make a living.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
