The U.S. now spends more money on so-called healthcare than any other nation on Earth—$3.5 trillion a year.
Yet, public health continues to deteriorate, thanks to an environment contaminated by more than 84,000 industrial and agricultural chemicals, and a steady diet of cheap, unhealthy grub dished up in supermarkets, restaurants, schools and institutional settings.
Even the government admits that about half of all American adults—117 million individuals—have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many of which are related to poor quality eating patterns.
According to a report in The Guardian: “Approximately 85 percent of Americans do not consume the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommended intakes of the most important vitamins and minerals necessary for proper physical and mental development.”
With a government more interested in protecting corporate profits than in safeguarding your health, are we doomed?
Or can we take back our food—and our health?
