The Companies that create and manufacture foods, make a lot of money. We pay for it in poor health. When families moved to cities for industrial jobs, office jobs and schools, big companies took over family farms and stated the mass manufacture of food products.
That business has grown to a point that now it is a novelty to grow food, we all are accustomed to buying at the supermarket, where they have become well versed in the art marketing products.
Today we have a cultural norm of eating what is available in supermarkets and not giving thought to where the food comes from, what it is made of, and how it got to the store.
There is a whole generation of people who don’t know that ‘real food’ grows from the ground. And as far away from the ground the food we eat comes, the sicker the population grows. When you see a person who has heart disease, diabetes, cancer, had a joint replacement, who is on dialysis, limping, or who has Alzheimer’s disease, you can bet with 98% certainty, that this person has had a diet high in meats, processed foods, sugar and sodas.
(So, this is about the soda, soft drinks. Meats will be another topic.) The problem with soda is that this liquid candy causes illness and early death. If, when we drink a soda we fell dead, nobody would drink the next one. But, because it causes years of poor health, and plenty of time in between to pretend it’s not the foods we eat and drink, we continue to eat and drink products that kill, slowly, but definitely.
This poison is sweet, bubbly, flavorful, refreshing and deadly. The list is endless in the many ways that this combination of poisons destroys health and life. Lets look at just a few:
Brain fog, forgetfulness, Tooth decay, Pressure behind the Eyes, Throat cancer, Skin pimples, Enlarged Heart, High blood pressure, Breast Cancer, Stomach Ulcers and stomach cancer, Poor Digestion and constipation, colon cancer, Fatty Liver leading to liver failure and liver cancer, Kidney stones, leading to kidney failure, dialysis, Weakening of Bones, fractures and osteoporosis, and Over Weight.
Even Diet Sodas create sweet cravings, leading to diabetes, plus dehydration, and Potassium depletion. And, this is just the beginning. Now You Know.
