Are we being Marketed to be sick?

Leave a comment


My brother, Ray, told me about this article by Katie Couric on junk food. Watch the video at this site. We are being hijacked into buying junk food. This article says:

It’s a quote from Dr. David Kessler, who was the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from 1990 to 1997, where he worked extensively on enforcing tobacco regulations. But now he’s turned his attention on the next great American health crisis — how and what we eat. It’s the subject of the eye-opening new film “Fed Up” from executive producers Katie Couric (Yahoo’s global news anchor) and Laurie David (“An Inconvenient Truth”)

We can’t watch TV, listen to the radio, walk down the street or drive without marketing hijacking our brains. The two biggest hijackers are drugs and food. Yes we need to eat food but most is junk food and processed foods that have more chemicals in them than nutrients. This hijacking has caused the biggest epidemic of illness in our nations history. We are loosing and will continue to lose more Americans to drug reactions and improper diet than all the wars combined. Why? Greed! Drugs and the food industry are big business.

Nature or Man Made?

Leave a comment


I find it ironic that so many studies are showing the positive effects of natural foods (natures pills). They prevent almost every disease that we get and they can cure disease we already have. The solution is so easy and so inexpensive. No marketing on TV just eat more plant-based foods and less animal-based foods. Diseases have reached a critical point in our country. The cost of insurance is rising. How much more can it rise before the system fails? The alternative is the American Cure all System, DRUGS! If you watch enough TV you will believe there is a pill for everything. The side effects can be horrible and even life threatening. So why do we choose a man-made pill over natures natural solution? It’s marketing 101. People believe what they hear on TV and radio. We believe getting old is the problem, when it’s not. We believe everyone gets sick, but they don’t. We believe the only solution is drugs, It’s not! You have a choice, choose wisely. The truth is vegans do live longer, happier and healthier. They almost never get a chronic illness.

Reading Labels

Do you read food labels? It is not just about fat and calories! Look at what is in the product. Processed foods (what most Americans eat) have all kinds of preservatives in them. If you can not read the name it’s not good for you. Also scan the list of ingredients taking note of what is on top of list and what is at bottom. They are listed in order of amount in the product. If you are cooking an instant mashed potato product (why you don’t just cook some potatoes and mash them I don’t understand) is potato on the top or bottom of list? I have seen products where it is at the bottom. That means there is very little real potatoes in the product. Next question you should ask “if my mashed potatoes have little of no potatoes, what am I eating?”

Labeling is a game. Manufactures set serving size so percentages look small. If you are eating several of their serving sizes you may be getting much more fat, sugar or salt than you think. We very seldom buy anything in a box, can or frozen package. We do buy pasta in a box. It is from Italy with no GMOs and no preservatives. Try to buy more things that grow and are farmed organically. Your body will thank you with good health. Remember labels serve to adversities as well. Advertisement is designed to make you buy something you really don’t need or want.

 

Are Humans the Smartest Animals on Earth?

Leave a comment


I sometimes wonder how smart we really are. Yes we have technology that no other animals has but all life seeks out health, procreation and finds food that is nursing to its species except humans! We know soda, fried foods, salty foods, sugary foods are bad for us but we still consume them in droves. More so than any other country. Many of us know how bad animal protein is for us but we are consuming larger quantities of it than ever before. What do we have to show for it? More cancer than ever and more than other countries. Heart decease is still the number one killer of Americans. Animal protein with its saturated fat and cholesterol is the main cause. Sugary and salty foods lead to it as well. We eat far less vegetables than our parents did. Why? I think it is because we have convinced ourselves that vegetables and fruits are not good tasting. We don’t see commercials for them but we do for fast food items and sugary treats. If we were so smart, you would think that most of us would catch on and change our lives. Doing so would increase American health, decrease hospitals, nursing homes and medical offices, decrease health care costs nd raise the standard of living in America. If we keep to our current path, we are doomed! Drugs have not helped the rise of decease and won’t at any time. From a drug company prospective, it is better to keep America sick and sell them a lot of drugs for their symptoms.

 

Egg Marketing Beware!

Leave a comment


The American Egg Board is an US government group that markets on behalf of the egg industry. Dr Greger talks about how they can not say good for you, healthy or nutritious. You can say eggs are nutrient dense. Our laws are so messed up. The US DA told the egg industry you can say eggs are a diet food. Eggs are very heavy in saturated fat and have been linked to heart decease and certain forms of cancer. Why do we still eat them? HABIT! They are not even allowed to say they are SAFE since so many Americans get salmonella from eggs.

This is a MUST watch video if you are an egg eater. Even a small number of eggs a month can increase your cholesterol and satiated fat way above normal. Why should we avoid eggs at all cost?

  1. Saturated fat leads to heart decease and obesity
  2. Unsafe from salmonella which causes food posioning
  3. Cholesterol is high leading to heart desease
  4. Linked to many types of cancer like breast cancer

 

Is Salmonella in Your Future?

1 Comment


Salmonella accounts for more hospitalization and death than any other food born-illness. Dr Greger says it’s on the rise. Watch the video below! Guess where most salmonella comes from … CHICKEN! Are you eating chicken because beef is bad for you? Do you believe chicken is healthier? It’s not! Beware of what you eat and how it is marketed to you. TV and radio plays a big role in what we believe. We are marketed to believe that chicken (white meat) is so much more healthy for us. The pork industry (which is red meat NOT WHITE) tries to back onto the chicken marketing campaign. “The other white meat”.

 

 

2015 Dietary Guidelines Committee

Leave a comment


Watch the video of Day 2 (use password: (DGAC011414).  This is a 5 hr and 43 minute video. These are people guiding our government on what is important for American health. You will not see this committees recommendations on TV. It is not popular with the drug companies, dairy and meat lobbies. Many speakers, especially those not associated with a product, recommended a plant-based diet to improve American health. So many studies show plant-based diet as critical to our health. We know we can cook plants in interesting ways that taste great. Why do we resist so much at the expense of our health. We are getting sicker as a nation and making our children sicker at earlier ages. Our schools feed junk to our kids. Lets take steps to stop this abomination. Making money is important but GREED is killing America.Food For Thought
