When so many Americans want to be thinner and healthier, why is junk food so inexpensive, so widespread and so easily obtainable?
Why are children in America getting fatter and fatter?
Why are we getting sicker and sicker when we know how to prevent so many lifestyle – food induced diseases that are growing at an epidemic rate?
The majority of us feel it’s our fault. We feel we don’t have enough willpower; but truthfully, it’s not our fault. It’s not that simple.
I recently watched an ABC News special report food industry expose – How To Get Fat Without Really Trying. It first aired in 2003, but sadly, the information holds more true today because although the food industry has known for years that the food they produce is making people sick and fat, they continue to produce it, fill our grocery stores with it, and offer it to our children at school!
Many people feel that personal food choices, health and well-being are a matter of personal choice and responsibility, but I believe there are other reasons. The vast majority of people don’t know any better. And worst of all even when people think they’re purchasing “healthy” food, they’re not. There are hidden ingredients that sabotage their efforts.
Take the time to be informed. Click the links below to watch the report produced and hosted by Peter Jennings. The entire program is only about 45 minutes long. But I have posted it to view in five parts.
2015 is the year for a better you, a healthier you. Keep learning as much as you can and become better informed and YOU CAN DO IT!!
