Processed bodies part 2


A few posts ago I showed a picture of what the average American family of four eats in a week.  It was disturbing to say the least.  My co-worker, Ahnalee found the Time Magazine photo gallery that this was taken from.  Take a minute to scroll through the pictures of “What the world eats” and compare the countries and what they consume, including price. I find it very sad to see what the gluttoness first world countries consume compared to third world.  Next time your $1.50 bottle of coke gets stuck in the vending machine and you want to pitch a fit, take a minute to remember the family in Chad that only has rice for the week and spends an equivalent of $1.63 in U.S. dollars.  It is easy to see why our nation has the world’s largest problem with obesity.  Again, check out all the processed crap on our dinner tables.  You can’t expect your body to run properly if that is what you’re feeding it.  It’s just impossible. This is part 1 but you can google part 2 and 3 as well for more pictures.  It’s really crazy to look at.  Tonight, when you are eating dinner with your family, count your blessings as they are bountiful compared to the rest of the world and think for a second about what you’re consuming.  Is it really what man was intended to eat?  Are there any fruits and veggies on your plate?  Unprocessed grains?  I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty because I consume these things to but I’m trying to keep it honest and bring it to everyone’s attention.  Maybe it will cause a few of us to think twice before chugging down that cola or making dinner out of a box with fake cheese powder.
