Dear American consumers: Please don’t start eating healthfully. Sincerely, the food industry

Dear American consumers: Please don’t start eating healthfully. Sincerely, the food industry | Go Sugar Free Now | Scoop.it

Dear Consumers: A disturbing trend has come to our attention. You, the people, are thinking more about health, and you’re starting to do something about it. This cannot continue.

Steve Kingsley's insight:

I've developed new food products for mulinational, medium, and small food companies. They ALWAYS go with products that do best in consumer testing. Seems to me that we, as consumers, are just as much at fault.

Clean food, clean water, and clean air: I think that those are
the biggest keys to health.

Niet te geloven - een artikel over gezonde voeding / één van grootste firma's zegt dat ze hu CEO's niet meer kunnen betalen als mensen gezond gaan eten !!!

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 24, 2013 11:50 AM

LOVE THIS ONE!!!

 

From the article:

 

...Your superficial understanding of health has a great influence over your purchasing decisions, and we’re ready for it, whether you choose to go low-calorie, low-fat, gluten-free or inevitably give up and accept the fact that you can’t resist our Little Debbie snacks, potato chips and ice cream novelties.

 

Whatever the current health trend, we respond by developing and marketing new products. We can also show you how great some of our current products are and always have been.

 

For example, when things were not looking so good for fat, our friends at Welch’s were able to point out that their chewy fruit snacks were a fat free option. Low fat! Healthy! Then the tide turned against carbohydrates. Our friends in meat and dairy were happy to show that their steaks, meats and cheeses were low-carb choices. Low carbs! Healthy!

 

 

But we’re getting uneasy.

Fast Food, Fat Profits: Obesity in America

Fast Food, Fat Profits: Obesity in America | Go Sugar Free Now | Scoop.it

Obesity in America has reached a crisis point. Two out of every three Americans are overweight, one out of every three is obese. One in three are expected to have diabetes by 2050.
Minorities have been even more profoundly affected. African-Americans have a 50 per cent higher prevalence of obesity and Hispanics 25 per cent higher when compared with whites.
How did the situation get so out of hand? Josh Rushing explores the world of cheap food for Americans living at the margins.
What opportunities do people have to eat healthy? Who is responsible for food deserts and processed food in American schools?

I disagree. Cheap/fast foods are not the culprits. We cook at home with  healthy foods, veggies, and other ingredients and it costs LESS - actually MUCH LESS - as we are slim and so healthy we haven't seen a doctor in years.

Annette Ferri's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:29 AM

Obesity and diabetes is on the rise because of hidden toxic chemicals in food and the disgusting way things are grown and manufactured. This epidemic will continue unless people choose organic.

Steve Kingsley's comment, July 27, 2013 12:30 PM
I disagree again... obesity and diabetes are due to: 1) The loss of self-control; 2) Most people choosing junk food EVEN when healthy foods are around.

Daniel Chidiac says " ... this world is filled with appearance challenges, because we believe that feeling great starts with outward appearance. Your body should be loved for the highly technical machine it is. It deserves respect for housing the only thing that is ever permanent: your soul."
