TopicBeneficial Banana For a Beautiful Body
We've come up with brilliant inventions like high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated Bauer Nutrition oils so we can make cheap sugars and "plastic fats" that can stay on grocery store shelves for years without fear of spoiling. We've also found efficient ways of producing meat (though totally neglectful of our health, the environment, and the animals) that is cheaper and faster, therefore much more lucrative. We no longer eat "real food" and it's affecting our health. Back in the 1950s we Americans spent around 5% of our annual income on health care and almost 20% on food. Today it's almost the exact opposite, so it seems there must be a direct correlation between food quality and overall health. We as consumers are getting a lower quality of food at a lower price but at what cost? Those dollars we used to spend on quality food must now be diverted to prescription medications to counteract the effects of our poor food supply.
