Thiel: Video demonstrates harm of our addiction to bad foods

I hate to say it, but we, as a human race, are the sickest we have ever been in recorded history.

I hate to say it, but I am not the first. We, as a human race, are the sickest we have ever been in recorded history.

Even in lieu of all of our scientific advances, unfortunately we are the sickest race that is walking this earth at present.

We have more cardiovascular diseases, cancer, degenerative, autoimmune and systemic diseases than ever recorded before in history. Obesity and diabetes are skyrocketing.

We must be doing something wrong. We are quickly learning that the answer is not in a pill.

Our body is designed to be healthy, in fact it is its natural state.

So why is it that we’ve ended up where we are?

I believe the single most profound contributor to our present day state is simply what we are eating.

For example, in the 1900s people consumed on average 15 grams of sugar a day. Today, it is as much as 150 g a day.

That’s 150 pounds of sugar a year in conjunction with approximately 79 pounds of high fructose corn syrup per year.

It is a scientific fact that this leads to many, many chronic debilitating diseases alone.

So how are we supposed to eat? What do we eat? What do we trust and not trust?

There’s no shortage of books and programs available to the general public on this matter but by the time we read them all it may be too late.

However, I have a simple solution for you.

One of my patients sent me a link to a video that is one of the best I have ever seen on how to eat properly and exposing some of the dogma that we are bombarded by every day.

Simply go to your computer and type

The movie is over one hour long and I guarantee you it will most likely change your life.

In it, leading authors and researchers around the world discussed the myths and truths about such things as sugars, fats, high fructose corn syrup and MSG.

One of the more salient points of this program is that it clearly demonstrates our addiction to food that is most certainly harming us.

It is the most succinct and user-friendly version on this topic that I have I’ve ever seen .

In this program, they are not trying to sell you a quick weight loss program, protein powder or some fancy extracted from an exotic plant in the Amazon.

It simply shows those who are truly interested, the way out of this madness that we are presently consuming.

Do yourself and your family a favour, instead of watching a rerun of Laverne and Shirley, turn on your computer, go to the site and begin the road back to health, wellness and a sense of well-being.

It’s never too late.  Believe me, this is important.
