Why is it that the United States accepts as “normal” an ever-more deadly epidemic of chronic disease that already affects 145 million people (60% of the population have at least one chronic disease, with 42% suffering from two or more), while spending $3.8 trillion a year on health care, twice the amount of any other industrialized country, meanwhile chalking up more deaths from medical malpractice and pharma drug side effects than any other nation in the industrialized world?
Why is it that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, especially Delta and the original variants, have been able to trigger hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and premature deaths in the US among the elderly and those in poor health—those suffering from pre-existing, diet and environmentally-related chronic medical comorbidities such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, lung disease, and liver disease?
Processed foods, or to be precise, lab- and industrially- processed “food-like substances,” featured in supermarkets and convenience stores, served up in restaurants, schools, cafeterias, nursing homes, and your own kitchen, are omnipresent, cheap, convenient, deliciously and addictively sweet and/or flavored, but unfortunately poisonous.
Big Food’s culinary assault on our health is aided and abetted by Big Pharma, Big Biotech, and indentured public officials who deliberately and profitably focus on the symptoms of toxic food and chronic disease, while ignoring the cure for America’s deadly chronic disease epidemic: home-cooked, healthy fresh food, locally and regionally-produced, raised organically and regeneratively, and a healthy environment.
