Did you know the World Health Organization classified processed meats (bacon, sausage, ham, wieners, deli cuts, etc.) as a Class 1 Carcinogenic, or something that likely causes cancer (at the same level as smoking and asbestos)?
You might have heard something in the news a couple of years ago about this, but then you likely heard that butter was great for you, and fruits and veggies cause diabetes, and carbs make people fat, and a whole lot of other stuff that left you wondering what is true and what is not and who can you trust these days anyways?
You might have visited the Cancer Association website and found “healthy” recipes filled with ground beef and other meats. I mean if they say it’s okay, it must be, right?
This month Netflix released the groundbreaking documentary What the Health. I believe that everyone needs to watch this movie. Make your own choices and decisions after that, but first watch this film.
Two thirds of the population is obese. One in four deaths is from cancer. Within the next 25 years one in three people will have diabetes. This is the first generation that will likely not outlive their parents. So, can anyone deny that something is going on?
It’s the food. It’s all about the food.
And maybe eventually someday the human species will evolve so we can eat this way and not get diabetes, cancer and a host of other diseases, but that is still a long way off in the future.
In the meantime, I continue to search for better options for myself and my family, to seek out the path to better health.
