  1. It’s worth reading the likes of Colin Campbell, Joel Fuhrman, Dean Ornish,
    Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Robert O. Young etc who touch on the subject of the
    junk food industry, but focus mainly on restoring health through diet.

  3. Food Inc is amazing. A real eye opener, and heart breaker at times. If
    you’re keen on torrents you can find it pretty quick

  4. Oh, no, it gets worse. It’s not even just Fast Food, it’s ALL food. If it
    comes in a box, bag, microwavable insta, the entire food system is wonk.
    The only way to get anything close to ‘real’ food is either be rich or grow
    it yourself. The poor are having major obesity rates because the cheep
    unhealthy food, is PURPOSELY set up to be all they can afford. Have you
    seen ‘The Future of Food’ made in 2007? Might wanna check it out if you
    haven’t.

  5. A famous Polish monk here said that, if one eats meat, it should be just
    fish and, if pushed, white meat. He advised never eating any red meat. He
    also said one should stop eating meat after the age of 60 as, under natural
    conditions, our teeth would not be able to chew it and at this age it
    becomes more of a poison. Like the idea of a Jersey cow – used a drink a
    lot of their milk as a kid growing up in the north of England.

  6. @ivankinsman ‘The Future of Food’ is mostly about crops, how companies are
    genetically altering and then -patenting- them. Basically, Monopolizing
    crop seeds. Honestly, when you really dive into trying to find out about
    your food here in America… It’s pretty scary. I don’t mean to sound like
    a conspiracy freak, but… When you watch TV and all the commercials, you
    can’t help but think somethings up. Like… ‘Hospital making people sick so
    it can keep making money off them’ kinda deal? idk

    money.

  9. I think its worst than even this, as the healthy food we are told is
    fruit/veg etc etc… this is WRONG…however saturated fat, organ meat,
    blood, non-pasturized 100% hay/grass fed milk hight in fat, perhaps a
    Jersey cow is actually what we need. And was discovered and documented in
    the 1930’s by Weston A Price (westonAPricedotcom) I’d realy recomend a few
    books for you if your interested ? Eat fat Loose fat, no personal offence
    ment :)

  10. Since they sent all our manufacturing jobs over seas… fast food is all we
    have left. They would have sent that over seas too but they can’t figure
    out how to keep the fries warm on the ocean freighter that long… lol.
