I strongly believe that most of our health issues are related to diet and lifestyle, not disease, as many in the medical establishment would have you believe.
And as parents, we are responsible for the foods that our kids eat and the habits that they learn, much of which are carried on into adulthood.
So let’s talk health – the state of unhealthiness in America is disturbing to me.
Here’s a few choice tidbits, courtesy of Processed People:
- 200 million Americans are overweight.
- 100 million are obese.
- Over 75 million Americans have high blood pressure.
- 24 million are diabetic.
- Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death for men and women, followed by stroke and obesity-related cancers.
- Obesity has overtaken tobacco as the No. 1 cause of preventable deaths in the U.S.
- Over 50% of bankruptcies are caused by “medical debt.”
“Processed People features in-depth discussions with leading health experts detailing why so many of us are sick, and offers solutions to our current devastating health crisis. Tragically, many Americans are victims of a “health care” system and way of life which are devastating to our overall well-being. To those running our system, the bottom line on the dollars we’re able to spend is more important than the bottom line on our health. We’re caught in a perpetual grinding machine, unable to escape.”
“It’s nearly impossible to be liberated when there’s so much confusing, conflicting information from “the authorities” — be they the government or industry-controlled organizations like the American Dietetic Association. You find yourself wondering: Do they really have your best interests at heart?”
“Fast food, fast medicine, fast news, and fast lives have turned many Americans into sick, uninformed, indebted, “processed” people.”
Consider purchasing this film and showing it to your friends, your family, your local school administrators, and your church. It’s up to us, not the government, to change things.
