Joel Fuhrman, M.D.: The Cure for the American Diet: Nutrient Density
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in health
The American diet causes disease. It is composed of 25 percent animal products and 62 percent processed foods and only 5 percent of calories from fruits and vegetables.(1) We could not have designed a more effective cancer-causing, heart-attack-causing diet if we had scientifically planned it. Our nation's food choices have produced a population with widespread chronic illness and health care costs spiraling out of control. You cannot escape from the biological law of cause and effect -- food choices are the most significant cause of disease and premature death.
Makes me wonder why processed food is legal.
