I learned a lot, because I was actually paying attention and had my full mental faculties about me. The major thing is that the American people are sick and dying largely because of ignorance of the basics.
People in other countries don’t need a nutrition lesson, because they eat a lot of fiber and walk more than we do. They have to. Grain and vegetables is easier to procure and requires less resources than meat and milk, so these poor people eat more fiber and don’t eat as often as we do. They also have to hustle to make ends meet, there’s no welfare nation in other countries, so they get more movement in during the course of the day.
While socialism is basic human civility, and medicine and education should be given to every citizen free of charge, America is a capitalist society, where all actions are motivated by self interest and the government and media appeals to this inclination in man’s nature.
Joseph Goebbels, the master of propaganda for the Nazi Party once said, ‘think of the media as a keyboard, on which the government can play.’ That is exactly what has happened to America, a nation led by capitalism and competition. People, even educated people, are largely ignorant of what people are supposed to eat.
The food industry is focused on profit, not health, and thus advertises its junk food on tv and other media. Not only that, but commercial food has become a type of merchandise, altered in both taste and appearance to be addictive to the consumer. Add on top of the fictional ideas that people need more than 100g a protein a day or should avoid cholesterol completely, and you have a recipe for disaster.
The main food should be whole grains and vegetables, cooked over low heat for a long time. It doesn’t matter where you get your protein, most people are getting too much, and the food manufacturers put sugar in everything not only to make it taste better, but to make you addicted to the food.
Meat and milk should not be daily food, it should be a rarity, and in the past it was. It is only with the progress in agricultural technology in the 1950’s that the beef and dairy industries began confusing the common people with propaganda.
So in essence, ignorance of children’s knowledge has made the American people the most miserable of all, and people are actually digging their own graves without basic tools to live.
