We all know that obesity is on the rise which is such a sad state of affairs.
The absolutely worst part about it is that it’s not just the wealthy countries like USA where the problem is. Far from it.
It now is filtering out into Asia and also into developing countries where once the diet was mostly plant-based and healthy, now processed and fast foods are becoming more and more available and cheap.
My belief is that the beginning was when factory farming came in and animal produce became cheaper and easier to get.
The increased sugar in products is only part of the problem. Animal foods is also a massive issue too as researchers know that too much animal protein leads to all the now common diseases like heart, diabetes, cancers etc.
In the west and wealthy countries – these diseases are controlled by drugs, which in itself poses problems, but the poorer countries don’t have this option due to cost.
Wholefood, plant based eating has been scientifically proven to not only reduce obesity, but can reverse common diseases like heart disease and diabetes. No other ‘diet’ can claim this. Obesity and all the side effects that it comes with it is down to a lifestyle choice and sadly most have no idea that all it takes is a switch in lifestyle.
There’s no money in veggies!
