Poor Food Risks Health of Half the World

An independent panel of food and agriculture experts has determined that poor diets undermine the health of 1 in 3 of the world’s people, BBC.com reports. Coupled with the prediction that a third of the world’s population will be overweight or obese by 2030, this is a wakeup call to do what it takes to get healthy, now, beginning with REAL food.

Processed foods are probably the worst foods on the planet, and they only contribute to obesity. They’re loaded with preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavorings, which is one reason I recommend avoiding them. The best way to avoid toxic chemical additives is to consume only fresh whole, organic foods. But practically speaking, this can be difficult to accomplish 100 percent of the time, so start by reading labels, so you can avoid the most toxic ingredients, including those artificial additives, along with trans fats and vegetable oils and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

Also avoid anything that comes from a confined animal feeding operation (CAFO) and eat only meats from animals that are free-ranging and grass-fed. CAFOs are notorious for feeding their animals growth hormones and antibiotics, so the more organic choices you make when it comes to chicken, pork and beef, the less likely you’ll be exposed to these additives.

Avoiding genetically engineered (GE) foods, aka GMOs, and eating whole, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables is important too. You can do this by shopping farmers markets and reading labels and boycotting suppliers that refuse to openly label their GMO products.
