Unhealthy Foods. Not saturated fats, high-glycemic carbohydrates, or even foods that are high in cholesterol. No real foods that are unhealthy because THEY are unhealthy. Yes, if you are consuming animals and plants that are unhealthy, you have NO CHANCE of being optimally healthy yourself!

Way too many people of “supposed” importance (i.e. Diet Dictocrats) believe America can be healthy by predominately consuming animals that are unhealthy? Well, those people…are DEAD WRONG! In a matter of fact, this message is simply “DEADLY”!

Because the future of the health of the United States is resting firmly on the shoulders of those who are predominately motivated by making a huge profit, the health of generations’ X and Y are going to suffer.

If we are purchasing and consuming beef, pork, poultry, eggs, and fish, without knowing the animals living conditions and quality of life, we are opening ourselves up to a plethora of future health challenges. Why? “Factory Farming” and “Industrial Farming” are all about quantity, not quality. Because of this, unhealthy food is rampant.

I believe the statement; “it isn’t a food unless your great grandmother considered it a food” has become outdated. Why? One, very few people have any idea what their grandmother ate (or anybody else for that matter back then), let alone, their great grandmother, and two, animals were NOT raised back then the way they are today. Your great grandmother would be able to see the difference in the color, size, texture, taste, and nutritional value of her beef, pork, poultry, eggs, and fish, compared to what is predominately farmed today. Today, most people don’t have any idea what a healthy piece of beef, pork, poultry (eggs), and fish should look and taste like, let alone how it should make them feel. The truth is, your great grandmother’s options for unhealthy food were quite limited to yours and mine!

It has most of us at a huge disadvantage, even if we are trying to make a concerted effort in improving our health. You see your great grandmother was surrounded by small farms where the farmers took great pride in the health of their animals and the quality of their product. Today…it’s all about the profit, with very little to no pride to be found while producing the very lowest of quality.

The best way to make this profit is to produce the greatest amount of product using the smallest amount of space; this has ensured the demise of the health of the animal being farmed. Factory farming has been pushing the little guy out for quite a while now. For example: In the U.S., four companies produce 81 percent of the cows, 73 percent of the sheep, 57 percent of the pigs and 50 percent of the chickens. In 1967, there were one million pig farms in America; as of 2002, there were 114,000, with 80 million pigs (out of 95 million) killed each year on factory farms as of 2002, according to the U.S. National Pork Producers Council. According to the World Watch Institute, 74 percent of the world's poultry, 43 percent of beef, and 68 percent of eggs are produced this way. Unhealthy food... ad nauseum!

If the future of America is going to continue to be “blinded” by the inaccuracies of the “Diet Dictocrats” there is no hope for our future concerning our health. Yes, Big Pharma will make out just fine (couldn’t be in a better situation actually), but you as an individual, your children, and your grandchildren can expect to be diseased. It’s not if, it will be when. Here is what is going on in our factory farms while producing unhealthy foods: 1) Your food may be full of growth hormones, antibiotics, toxins and other drugs; and/or 2) your favorite animal product may have been raised in inhumane living conditions as well as have never had the opportunity to exercise daily (alone turn around) or receive proper sunlight; and/or 3) your favorite beef, poultry or fish may be forced to consume foods that are not indigenous to its species, animal byproducts or even forced to live in and consume its own fecal matter. Hey, if you don’t know how your breakfast, lunch and dinner were farmed, there is a good chance your meals are coming from factory farms.

Your health is directly related to the health of the foods you consume. Is your health important to you? If so, you need to know how your food was farmed!!!Beware of unhealthy foods!
