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 | Education | 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.

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.

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.

ESCAPE FIRE: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare (Trailer)

ESCAPE FIRE tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly system is finally gaining ground. Award-winning filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke follow dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. The film is about a way out. It's about saving the health of a nation.

Health is the proper relationship between microcosm, which is man, and the macrocosm, which is the universe. Disease is a disruption of this relationship.

From brain to mouth: The psychology of obesity

From brain to mouth: The psychology of obesity | Education | Scoop.it

A growing body of research is delving deeper to find out more about the psychology behind the obesity epidemic. Among a host of questions aimed directly at the psychology of eating are why Americans are eating more than they used to; whether some foods can really be addictive; and whether more people than in the past are genetically predisposed to pack on pounds.

Practice Empathy for Better Relationships at Home & Work - The Psychology of Success in Business

Practice Empathy for Better Relationships at Home & Work - The Psychology of Success in Business | Education | Scoop.it
Empathy can diffuse conflict and deepen relationships. See examples of empathic and non-empathic responses.

 

Empathy is perhaps the single most important relational skill. Empathy is the ability to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes and understand how they might be feeling in a given situation. The ability to listen empathetically – relating to and understanding the perspective, position and feelings of others – is a tremendously important capability in both personal and professional relationships.

 

We don’t need to have had the exact same experience or scenario in life to empathize with somebody else. As human beings, we all experience similar feelings of joy, sadness, loss, love, fear, loneliness, pride, shame, guilt, relief, and elation. If we listen in a way that allows us to relate to that common feeling or human experience, we can improve our connections and shared understandings with others.

If you only design menus that are essentially junk or fast food, the whole infrastructure supports junk.
—Jamie Oliver

Steve Kingsley's comment, July 6, 2013 5:26 PM
"If you only design..." - who is the hypothetical "you?" Don't you, Jamie and anybody else have the option to eat healthy regardless of who designs the menu? Find a place with the right menu your make your own. It's so easy to blame others.

The SAD diet just keeps getting sadder .... and now even if you are buying organic at the local farmers market you now need to ask are you using well water or reclaimed/recycled water?!?

Steve Kingsley's curator insight, September 27, 2013 4:42 PM

Most of the time this happens when the economy is bad and everybody wants or has to "save" on what they buy or the ingredients they use.
