WHAT THE FOOD INDUSTRY DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT THE FOODS YOU ARE EATING.
Do you know that most of us are starving? Not from a lack of food. This starvation is more insidious. It is from a lack of nutrients.
Agricultural practices have changed radically in the last 100 years. Food production has been taken over by corporations. Technology has changed the way our food is produced. Are we paying a deadly price for this "progress"?
One hundred years ago cancer, heart disease, and diabetes were rare. We were not assaulted by hormones, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, high fructose corn syrup, and other toxic ingredients with every bite. Grocery stores were not filled with fake food masquerading as real. We did not have to take handfuls of supplements to try to keep us healthy, nor search for organic foods.
Today we are completely confused by news releases, pseudo-scientific studies and conflicting information about what foods to eat to keep us healthy. Overfed and Undernourished cuts through the confusion. In an easy to understand, straight-to-the-point manner you will discover:
* the toxic foods and ingredients to eliminate from your diet
* some of the historical and societal changes that influence how we eat today
* how the takeover of food production by giant corporations results in inferior food
* the techniques used to influence our food choices
* why your trip to the supermarket can be detrimental to your health
* the little known flavor industry that makes inferior, bland foods taste sooo good
* the characteristics of healthy foods, and
* where to find the foods that will nourish you and keep you healthy
If you would like to know the basic principles that have enabled people to stay healthy into their 9th and 10th decade, this book is for you. Armed with this information you will be on your way to bring well fed and well nourished. Get your copy of Overfed and Undernourished today and end your search for the keys to healthy eating.
