4 Americans die every 20 minutes from what they eat…This is saddening. I came to a prolific revolution this early morning. We’re killing not only ourselves, but our children. This generation our children will live shorter lives than we will. We spend our lives being paranoid about Murder and crimes that will kill us, but the number one killer is heart disease, a DIET related disease. Murder is 18% or something like that. Don’t quote me. Now, this status is going to be really long, and I don’t honestly care whether all of you read it. If one person does, and they share it, and their friends share it, I’ve reached someone. It’s not our faults, most of us are uneducated. I’ve spent the last week doing research on this, and from what I’ve found I’m appalled. Cures to diseases can be found and reversed just by changing our diet. Alzheimers, a disease that hits close to home, has been stopped, and REVERSED by diet. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, hyper tension, obesity(well no duh!) and many others. IS IT BAD THAT CHILDREN ARE GOING THROUGH LIPOSUCTION?! Children shouldn’t have to deal with this mess, but they don’t know how to cook. Parents these days don’t know how to cook, but they know Mcdonalds with all the sugar, fat, and crap packed into those damn burgers. A happy meal has 700 calories, and a combo meal has 1700.. give or take for some. 700 calories is enough to feed an adult, 1700 is enough to feed a family. WHAT THE BLOODY HELL?! I’m just saying, when you can go into a children’s classroom, start pulling out vegetables, and no child knows what they are, you have a problem. Most of these diseases are caused by red processed meat, and processed food. MSG, a nice little chemical is known to make you fat, but it’s in everything. We barely get one serving of vegetables a day, but we need 6. WHY? Why as a society have we focused so much on meat and little on vegetables. Meat shouldn’t be eaten that much to be perfectly honest. 2 to 3 times a week. We can survive on vegetables, and be perfectly healthy. I love meat though, I do. But meat makes more emissions than all the transportation in the world. it takes 50 gallons of water a day to give to ONE cow that’s used for meat, and 6 pounds of grain per pound of beef. Now, I’m not saying jump to give up meat because I say so. What I am saying is, reconsider your choices. It’s bad for you, the environment, and everything else, can you hold back on eating it? Vegetables fill you up faster without all the horrible calories anyway. I’ve lost 3 pounds in 2 days… and I’m full. I feel stuffed. I’m a weekday vegetarian. I don’t feel as bad for the animals, and I’m healthier, but I still get my meat fix. I know I’ll live longer, and so will my children. I’ll die before they do, and I’m happy about that choice. Now I’m no doctor, nor am I an expert. I just know all the documentaries I’ve watched, and what I’ve read.
There’s so much sugar in everything, so much processed crap out there it’s hard to fight against it. Being healthy makes no money, nor does being dead. The medical, pharmaceutical industry makes their money in the people in between. The people with at least one chronic disease. Now a days, doctors are quick to hand out a bag of pills. Even Hippocrates himself stated let food be thy medicine. If you’re stuffing your face with processed crap and not trying to change that at least then you’re wasting your time and the time of your physician. I’m not trying to sugar coat this, it’s a huge problem and being gentle won’t fix it. We tried that remember, look where it’s got us. America is the most unhealthy country in the world, so on top of half the world hating us for being pompous and arrogant and downright stupid(our educational system lacks, don’t try to make it sound good), now we’re killing ourselves with food.
Please pass this on, to educate one person, who will educate someone else will make me happy. I’m not asking for the world to be changed, but at least a few people who consider this will do just fine If there’s more, I’ll be happy with that too.
