Is It Food?

Yesterday Dr. Joseph Mercola mentioned an article in his blog - Is It Food? - from the Animal Times Newsletter, a feature of the GoAnimal website. This is a must read!

The article takes readers through a series of witty "rules" for eating a nutritional diet - rules as simple as "Food First!," "Eat Old," and the "Grandfather Clause." Each rule is designed to have you think about what is real food versus what is processed food products. The goal - to have you understand the importance of real food and the detrimental effects food products may have on your health.

The two main culprits of food corruption are trans-fat laden hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. While these ingredients in food products help maintain shelf life, they do little to enhance your health.

In a to-the-point visual the article shows:

This is food:

This is Food Product:

See the difference? Food looks biological, like living tissue, something you might see outdoors, in a natural environment. Food products look like nothing you've ever seen before.

I hope you'll take a few moments and visit the site and read the article!
