Over-fed and Malnourished?

The Standard American Diet (SAD for short) has been linked to the explosion of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of cancer.  At the same time, many Americans are lacking in numerous critical nutrients including Vitamin D, Omega-3 and a wide range of minerals.

Heavily-processed foods are full of chemicals, salt, sugar and unhealthy fats and lacking in wholesome nourishment.  We are slowly starving even as we become fatter.  And more sick.

Recently, Michael Pollan (Food, Inc., Omnivore’s Dilemma) appeared on Oprah and discussed  many of these same issues.  We think that’s a fine place to start.

Please join with us in encouraging Oprah to continue the dialogue and effect real change.  Be part of the Real Food Revolution!

  1. I was thinking about this today…..that some folks who think themselves to be healthy due to their weight/BMI, aren’t necessarily so. But instead, they are truly malnourished even those who are vegans. They lack the necessary EFA’s and eat the SAD, for sure.

  2. Have you ever read the book Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett? Oneo f the characters is the horseman of the Apocalypse, Famine, and he has become a food processing industrial leader, peddling fake foods that are full of fat and sugar but devoid of actual nutrition. He says that if you eat enough of them you will 1.) get very fat, and 2.) die of malnutrition.

    1. Yes, I’m a big Gaiman fan! If ever a book should be made into a movie, “The Nice & Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch” is the one.
