Processed Food - Junk Food - Salt - Sugar - Additives


So why does our Government give more Subsidy's to the foods that are bad for us and less Subsidy's to the foods that are good for us? Because they're criminals, no one can be that stupid and idiotic. And that's why a healthy diet cost more at the store.

Fast Food is a type of mass-produced food high in saturated Fat, Sugar, Salt and calories, that is prepared and served very quickly. Eating too much fast food has been linked to, among other things, colorectal Cancer, Obesity, high cholesterol, Negative health effects, alleged animal cruelty, cases of worker exploitation, and claims of cultural degradation via shifts in people's eating patterns away from traditional foods.

New study finds extensive use of fluorinated chemicals in fast food wrappers.

Food Processing is the transformation of raw ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms.

Junk Food is a term for cheap food containing high levels of calories from Sugar or Fat with little fiber, protein, vitamins or minerals.

The True Cost of Bad Food

Years of Potential Life Lost is an estimate of the average years a person would have lived if he or she had not died prematurely.

Disability-Adjusted Life Year is a measure of overall disease burden, expressed as the number of years lost due to ill-health, disability or early death. (DALY)

Disease Burden is the impact of a health problem as measured by financial cost, mortality, morbidity, or other indicators.
Body Burden

Chemicals and Toxins Effects on the Human Body and Mind

Quality-Adjusted Life Year is a generic measure of disease burden, including both the quality and the quantity of life lived.

Wrongful Death Claim is a claim against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by close relatives, as enumerated by statute. Under common law, a dead person cannot bring a suit, and this created an anomaly in which activities that resulted in a person's injury would result in civil sanction, but activities that resulted in a person's death would not.

Fatal Accidents Act 1846 allowed relatives of people killed by the wrongdoing of others to recover damages. (Lord Campbell's Act).

Punitive Damages are damages intended to reform or deter the defendant and others from engaging in conduct similar to that which formed the basis of the lawsuit. Although the purpose of punitive damages is not to compensate the plaintiff, the plaintiff will receive all or some of the punitive damages award.

When corporations and people are allowed to produce unhealthy foods, they literally kill millions of people every year. The only sure way to stop these ignorant murderers from producing unhealthy foods is to fully educate children about food and all the healthy choices they have. We also have to stop corporations from exploiting children on TV. TV actually encourages junk food addiction. And on top of that, our Government makes unhealthy foods cheaper then healthy foods by giving corporations Subsidies, kickbacks and tax breaks. But the fact is that unhealthy foods cost 10 times more then healthy foods, but the consumer is defrauded and misinformed at the grocery store. When calculating the costs of unhealthy foods you have to factor in the time, people and resources it takes to produce the product as well as the end result, which is increased cost of healthcare for treating people suffering from health related issues that come from a bad diet, like heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes and so on. That means lost production and lost potential, which adds to the cost of unhealthy foods. 

Most people like a chip that snaps with about four pounds of pressure per square inch. So you see, manufacturers are educated about what you like, but it's not for your benefit, but for the benefit of money.

Salt


1.65 million deaths from cardiovascular causes occurred in 2010 were attributed to sodium consumption?

Salt is an essential nutrient for human health via its role as an electrolyte and osmotic solute. But Excessive salt consumption can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension, in children and adults. Such health effects of salt have long been studied. Accordingly, numerous world health associations and experts in developed countries recommend reducing consumption of popular salty foods. The World Health Organization recommends that adults should consume less than 2,000 mg of sodium, equivalent to 5 grams of salt per day. Salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite. Salt is present in vast quantities in seawater, where it is the main mineral constituent. The open ocean has about 35 grams (1.2 oz) of solids per litre, a salinity of 3.5%.

Most people consume too much Sodium or Edible Salt and not enough Potassium. Worldwide, people consume an average of 3,950 milligrams of sodium a day, Adults should consume less than 2,000 mg of sodium, or 2 grams of salt and at least 3,510 mg of potassium per day. (1 oz = 28,349.5 mg's, 2 oz a month = 24 oz a year).

Sodium Consumption (PDF)
Salt intake Calculator

Sodium Chloride is an ionic compound with the chemical formula NaCl, representing a 1:1 ratio of sodium and chloride ions. Sodium chloride is the salt most responsible for the salinity of seawater and of the extracellular fluid of many multicellular organisms. In the form of edible or table salt it is commonly used as a condiment and food preservative.

Sodium is a chemical element with symbol Na (from Latin natrium) and atomic number 11. It is a soft, silvery-white, highly reactive metal. Sodium is an alkali metal, being in group 1 of the periodic table, because it has a single electron in its outer shell that it readily donates, creating a positively charged atom—the Na+ cation. Its only stable isotope is 23Na. The free metal does not occur in nature, but must be prepared from compounds. Sodium is the sixth most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and exists in numerous minerals such as feldspars, sodalite and rock salt (NaCl). Many salts of sodium are highly water-soluble: sodium ions have been leached by the action of water from the Earth's minerals over eons, and thus sodium and chlorine are the most common dissolved elements by weight in the oceans.

Sugar


Sugar sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. There are various types of sugar derived from different sources. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose (also known as dextrose), fructose, and galactose. The table or granulated sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose, a disaccharide. (In the body, sucrose hydrolyses into fructose and glucose.) Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose. Longer chains of sugars are called oligosaccharides. Chemically-different substances may also have a sweet taste, but are not classified as sugars. Some are used as lower-calorie food substitutes for sugar, described as artificial sweeteners.

Sugar Vs. High Fructose Corn Syrup - What's the Difference? (youtube)

High Fructose Corn Syrup is a sweetener made from corn starch that has been processed by glucose isomerase to convert some of its glucose into fructose.

Fructose is a ketonic monosaccharide found in many plants, where it is often bonded to glucose to form the disaccharide sucrose. It is one of the three dietary monosaccharides, along with glucose and galactose, that are absorbed directly into the bloodstream during digestion.

Glycogen is one form in which body fuel is stored; stored primarily in the liver and broken down into glucose when needed by the body. Glucose is a monosaccharide sugar that has several forms; an important source of physiological energy.

Cancer cells are fed by sugar, which encourages ongoing cancer cell growth
Cancer cells are also known to thrive in environments that are acidic in nature
Since the pH of sugar is about 6.4, it provides a very cancer-friendly atmosphere. Sugar is linked to more
cancers of the breast, prostrate, endometrium and pancreas.

Monosaccharide also called simple sugars, are the most basic units of carbohydrates.

Sugars in Wine are at the heart of what makes winemaking possible. During the process of fermentation, sugars from wine grapes are broken down and converted by yeast into alcohol (ethanol) and carbon dioxide. Grapes accumulate sugars as they grow on the grapevine through the translocation of sucrose molecules that are produced by photosynthesis from the leaves. During ripening the sucrose molecules are hydrolyzed (separated) by the enzyme invertase into glucose and fructose. By the time of harvest, between 15 and 25% of the grape will be composed of simple sugars. Both glucose and fructose are six-carbon sugars but three-, four-, five- and seven-carbon sugars are also present in the grape. Not all sugars are fermentable with sugars like the five-carbon arabinose, rhamnose and xylose still being present in the wine after fermentation. Very high sugar content will effectively kill the yeast once a certain (high) alcohol content is reached. For these reasons, no wine is ever fermented completely "dry" (meaning without any residual sugar). Sugar's role in dictating the final alcohol content of the wine (and such its resulting body and "mouth-feel") sometimes encourages winemakers to add sugar (usually sucrose) during winemaking in a process known as chaptalization solely in order to boost the alcohol content - chaptalization does not increase the sweetness of a wine.

How The Food Industry Helps Engineer Our Cravings  No less than 59 variations of sweetness Kellogg’s spent $32 million last year in advertising Pop Tarts alone. Coca-Cola spent $269 million advertising its flagship product (Coca-Cola). Pepsi spent $150 million just to advertise the brightly colored sugar-water that is Gatorade.

When you discover a chemical that kills you, you don’t spend the last days of your life digging a hole and building a coffin, while at the same time ignoring the chemical that is killing you, you remove the chemical that is killing you. In society it's even worse. When society learns that something is killing its people, society isn’t supposed to just spend time wondering what to do with all the sick people and wonder what to with all the dead bodies, society is supposed to remove the element that is killing its people. What are we doing?

Feingold Diet is an elimination diet following research in the 1970s which appeared to link food additives with hyperactivity; by eliminating these additives and various foods the diet was supposed to alleviate the condition.

Elimination Diet is a method of identifying foods that an individual cannot consume without adverse effects.

Chow Down (2010) (hulu)

You can't learn on an empty stomach is an ignorant statement, a more intelligent and accurate statement would be "Healthy eating habits are essential for physical and mental well being." You have to understand the differences between an empty stomach, a person who is starving, and a person who eats the wrong foods or has poor eating habits. The fact is that you can learn on empty stomach as long as you are not starving. Some peoples mental clarity is better before eating a meal then it is after eating a meal. So you have to be fully aware of the effects that hunger has on the body and the brain. Example, Ghrelin, a hormone associated with appetite, has a significant effect on the Hippocampus, which is part of the brain responsible for learning and memory.

We have to teach children early that feeding the body every day is just as important as feeding the mind everyday. If you eat healthy foods in the correct amounts, and exercise your body, you will eventually have a strong and healthy body. If you feed your mind with valuable knowledge and information, and exercise your mind by testing your abilities, you will eventually become intelligent. Having both a strong mind and a strong body is a lot more effective and efficient then having a weak mind, or a weak body.

Make your Home or School a Junk Food Free Zone

Don't buy ready to eat Processed Food that you have a tendency to Over Eat or Binge with. Especially foods that are high in Sugar, Fats and Chemicals. Learn to snack on Healthier Choices. And learn to make those healthier choices even more appealing by learning Food Preparation Techniques that teach you about the art of Taste and Flavor as well as teaching you about Patience and Self-Control

Not getting enough Sleep could cause weight gain, why? 
Having too much Money could cause weight gain, why?.  .
Missing Meals could cause weight gain, but not fasting, why?
Eating while doing other activities is called Task Snacking, which could cause weight gain, why? 
Emotional Eating could cause weight gain, why? 
People eat more when bored or stressed, why? 

Comfort Food is food which provides a perceived nostalgic or sentimental value to the consumer, and is often characterized by its high caloric nature, high carbohydrate level, and simple preparation. The nostalgia may be specific to either the individual or a specific culture.
Eating too Fast

Sitting too much could cause weight gain, why?
Eating too much Fast Food or Processed Food could cause weight gain, why?
People who do not monitor their weight using a Weighing Scale tend to gain weight, why?

There is always healthier alternatives, even if the alternative is nothing. If there is no healthier alternative do not Starve yourself, just wait for a healthier choice. Fasting 

Is obesity socially contagious?

People should tailor their foods to their body's metabolic, genetic, and personal chemical responses that they have to specific foods. Pouring out too much insulin as a response to sugary foods or foods that quickly turn to sugar such as white rice or bread can make people anxious or shaky with low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).  Adrenaline Surges.

Fat does not grow on its own. Fat needs food to grow, so fat is not natural. Overweight is the bodies early warning system that tells a person that something is wrong. What the person eats and how their body is reacting to their specific diet will effect their weight. But don't rely on just your body weight to tell you if you're healthy. There are many other factors involved.

Of the roughly 5,000 substances that can be directly added to food, the FDA has no knowledge whatsoever of an estimated 1,000 of them. And more disturbingly, fewer than half of those 4,000 substances known to the FDA have ever gone through the sort of testing you might hope something you’re feeding yourself and your kids would be subjected to, namely toxicology tests on mice or rats. On top of that, a scant few additives have been tested according to the way they’re actually consumed—that is, in combination with a multitude of other additives.

You're stupid if you think that your physical problems are just related to growing old. Old Age is not a reason for disease or a reason for a decline in physical abilities like eyesight or memory. There are many contributing factors to a persons physical problems, and old age may just be one of those factors. So don't be a fool and believe that that you don't have options or choices. And don't except ignorant medication from corrupt doctors until you have done all your Research. When you become dependent on criminal doctors for support, you're already dead, but of course not before your doctor has raped you of your money.
