"Today, Americans get more than 50% of their calories each day from processed foods like flour, sugar and industrial seed oils that are virtually devoid of nutrients. Soft drinks alone account for 7% of our daily calorie intake. Yet these foods are directly at odds with what our bodies were designed for."
50% of calories from nutrient-less food that does nothing but destroy your body.
7% of calorie intake comes soda.
"a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that prescription medication is responsible for over 110,000 deaths a year."
..not to mention the irreversible damage medication can do to your body that is not reported as death..
"As for the common objection that the Paleo diet is dangerous because it permits foods like red meat, eggs and saturated fat, the most recent research does not support a causal relationship between eating these foods and heart disease, cancer, or early death. "
...science is evolving just like we are... once upon a time, we didn't think there was a correlation between disease and hand washing..
"people who take prescription medications may be less likely to engage in healthy diet and lifestyle behaviors. For example, a study published in 2014 found that people taking statins to reduce cholesterol may feel a false sense of security and overindulge in unhealthy foods. They increased their total calorie intake by 10% over a 10-year period, whereas no changes in eating habits were observed in non-statin users over that same period."
..this might be my most hated issue with prescription medication. 'i take pills for that so i no longer need to engage in healthy diet or lifestyle.' taking pills for something does not mean you are controlling the issue. it means you are artificially addressing/acknowledging it... (there are obvious exceptions..)
Have a beautiful day!! And say 3 nice things to yourself in the mirror!! (seriously)
