HUNGER IN AMERICA: Kids Going Hungry, Obesity Rising As Corporate Profits Soar - VIDEO

HUNGER IN AMERICA:  Kids Going Hungry, Obesity Rising As Corporate Profits Soar -  VIDEO | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

June 29, 2013 Moyers and Company -Kristi Jacobson and Mariana Chilton explain to Bill how hunger and food insecurity hit people from every walk of life.

 

50 MILLION PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHERE THEIR NEXT MEAL IS COMING FROM: HUNGER AND OBESITY ARE BOTH SIDES OF THE SAME COIN

Here in the richest country on earth, 50 million of us — one in six Americans — go hungry. More than a third of them are children. And yet Congress can’t pass a Farm Bill because our representatives continue to fight over how many billions to slash from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps. The debate is filled with tired clichés about freeloaders undeserving of government help, living large at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers. But a new documentary, A Place at the Table, paints a truer picture of America’s poor.... http://billmoyers.com/segment/kristi-jacobson-and-mariana-chilton-on-how-hunger-hurts-everyone/

United States an Overfed Yet Malnourished Nation ("the malnutrition of the affluent")

United States an Overfed Yet Malnourished Nation ("the malnutrition of the affluent") | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
Almost 40 percent of the U.S. is fat, yet is also nutritionally-starving to death. The truth is that the U.S.is over-fed and under-nourished.

So, how exactly is it possible to be starving to death when the average American eats more than 3700 calories a day? An adequate daily caloric count for rural Chinese farmers is around 2600. For professional athletes, they might healthfully consume 3000 calories in a day, but that is with a disproportionate amount of physical activity compared to the general public. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) admits that obesity causes a plethora of disease: heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some types of cancers, among them.

One problem is that even with all of this calorie consumption, people aren’t obtaining the basic nutrients their bodies crave in order to carry out its basic functions. This, in turn, leads to more eating, as the body feels ‘hunger’ as a neurological response to depleted nutritional stores.

Second, many of our agriculture practices have completely ruined the soil we grow food in, so we no longer enjoy the proper nutrients that were once provided for abundantly by just having highly fertile turf on which to plant our crops. We eat too many processed foods, and when we do eat a vegetable or fruit, it often has been grown in a mineral-depleted soil that has been improperly used since at least the 1950′s.

How Can We Know if Supplements Are Safe if We Do Not Know What Is in Them?

How Can We Know if Supplements Are Safe if We Do Not Know What Is in Them? | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

Americans spend over $20 billion annually on dietary supplements.1 Although supplements are regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, there is no requirement for supplement manufacturers to demonstrate efficacy or safety of their products prior to marketing them. However, companies may not include unapproved ingredients. It turns out that even this minimal requirement is not fulfilled. Harel et al identified 237 dietary supplements that were recalled by the FDA owing to inclusion of unapproved drug ingredients. Given the limited regulation of these products, it is likely that the number of recalls grossly underestimates the number of products on sale with unapproved ingredients. Dietary supplements should be treated with the same rigor as pharmaceutical drugs and with the same goal: to protect consumer health.
