The holidays are here and we always worry about over-indulging ourselves. Sadly there's a large group of folks (like myself) who think if it says "fat free" or "low fat" or "made with whole wheat" means for sure, it's good for us.
Over the years I've learned that sadly there is a lot of marketing and propaganda that goes into food marketing. The larger the distributor, the more money they have to spend. Take some fruit roll ups, that contain more sugar and processing agents than fruit. Quick and easy veggie dishes that are loaded with enough sodium to last you three weeks. Some health food critics claim that eating common foods such as wheat flour is now linked to allergies and possibly even Rheumatoid Arthritis! I'm the one that looks for the whole wheat bread thinking it's better than white bread, but is it?
Perhaps the real truth is it is a combination of what is put on the food while it's growing, how the food is processed, and the chemical additives to preserve it that are causing so many health issues on our culture as we age. There are a lot of smaller groups who talk about this all the time, but imagine how thrilled I was to hear a whole website will be launching in 2014 to expose this information!
The whole site will be dedicated to intelligent eating ! Based on the work of Caldwell Esselstyn, T. Colin Campbell, Neal Barnard and Dean Ornish to name a few..this website will be dedicated to give people like you and I full unbiased information about what they eat and how it affects our health.
From there, we can make our own choices.
