Processed Food Documentary: Processed Food vs. Nutritional Needs.

The human body runs on food. Once, food shortage was the major concern. After the second world war, technological advances in food production led to a new era, that was characterized by an overabundance of inexpensive food, and relatively little physical activity. In the decades that followed, other sociocultural shifts continued to contribute to the changing way we ate. Women who had previously controlled most of the average family’s food preparation now entered the workforce in significant numbers. And the processed food industry began to capitalize on our need for fast, convenient food.

This meant that fewer meals were being cooked at home. And since convenience foods were generally higher in calories than home-cooked meals, the average person’s caloric intake increased dramatically.

Maya Adam, MD, is waging a battle cry against one of America’s most critical – and challenging – public health crises of our generation: childhood obesity. A lecturer at Stanford School of Medicine and in Stanford University’s human biology program, she is leading the cause through education.

    s sugar the world’s most popular drug?
    Soda and Starbucks have too much sugar and fat in their drinks.
    Food should not be bad for you…… processed food has too much fat, salt, sugar and additives in them making them unhealthy. People need to go to their favorite food processors website, click on the CONTACT link and send them an email asking them to reduce the amount of fat, salt, SUGAR and ADDITIVES in the foods they produce. Their common answer is that they are producing what the customers want. You have to let them know that consumers want healthier food choices with less salt, fat, SUGAR and ADDITIVES in them. It only takes a minute to send them an email, tweet, call or text.  Food should not be bad for you. There is an obesity epidemic leading to increases in heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer.

    600.000 Groceries in America, 80% contains added Sugar :S Whole Grains, this women is clearly not educated in anything, as on the GI Scale, pure Table Sugar scores 64, Whole Grain Bread 70… This is exactly the problem, when people don't get their science straight! Not to mention, we were never meant to eat Grains! LOL Important for our health, no we don't need a simple 1 Gram of Carbohydrates a day, it is simply not needed by any single function in the body! Brown Rice contains Arsenic, why does so many idiots think that it is better to eat that? Incase you're too stupid to know what that is, look it up, and you'll never eat that crap again!

    Stop only counting calories and fat, there's much worse, you know..
    The processed food and 'large agricultural' industry is quite robbed of ethics. They just lore the FDA into being 'friends' with them, though the FDA denies conflict of interest. Hell, foreigner nations condemn such food additives. No offense to the U.S, thus it's quite a 'free nation,' it's more corrupt than insisted(though it's decent), and close minded, claiming "we're the strongest and best," alright sure the Russian Federation has low political freedoms, but take a look at what Russia and Mr.Putin did. GMO ban, though take a look at Obama who claimed to care so much, and condemned Putin's actions, he just gave Monsanto 'federal immunity.' Bull crap, he pulled a bait and switch, he earlier claimed in his campaign: "Americans have the right to know what they're buying." And please STOP ONLY COUNTING CALORIES. THE CORRUPT FOOD INDUSTRY DECIDES TO USE THE PEOPLE'S 'IGNORANCE' TO THEIR ADVANTAGE, BY MARKETING CRAP FOODS AS HEALTH FOODS such as "diet sodas." Well that's worse, and more synthetic crappy so called "food and drink." Though fat is notorious, which trans fat is evil, though even Monounsaturated fat fats are notorious. And about consuming less sugar, that has a purpose. It's alright if you're eating calories, that's not the enemy, it's transfat(already dead), FOOD ADDITIVES(worst enemy), GMOs and Pesticide sprayed Produce(crap), and sugar, though what's substituting sugar is worse than sugar itself.

    You should go to WooPep diet website. You can find there the best diet instructions I think.

    Its a shame that people have gotten so used to eating processed foods that videos like this explaining the difference between the two is necessary. Our ancestors would be shocked and probably disgusted.
