Prior to 1950, life consisted of small farming and mostly mom and pop businesses. Fresh milk delivered to your door every morning was the norm.
Soon after everything started to change; not necessarily for the common good. Industrialized agriculture was encouraged by government in cahoots with big businesses. The over-use of pesticides, vaccinations and antibiotics went in full gear at warp speed. Small restaurants and bakeries were quickly replaced by fully mechanized eating places. These corporations spread like viruses in every nook and cranny of a more or less balanced society.
By the 1990’s, problems with diabetes, obesity could not be contain. Starting in the fetus, the consumption of mass-produced, fried, greasy and sugary foods was leaving no child, woman, man or animal behind. New Pesticides and atmospheric pollutants started to add to hormonal balance disturbance. Over-eating went from bad to worse when the smoking ban went into effect. For many the addiction to nicotine was replaced by high fructose sugary products.
By the end of 2013, endocrinologists recognized the simple fact that pollutants like POPs were exacerbating an already out of control situation. Persistent organic pollutants, known as POPs, have the potential to harm humans and other organisms even at low concentrations commonly found in ordinary foods.
So far, 2014 has not shown any change in the obesity or diabetes stats. The medical discipline is still looking for ‘something’. However the obvious is put aside.
- Over-eating, gulping sugar in sweet sugary liquid forms and sitting for long hours will make people accumulate weight and become sick.
If ‘lung cancer’ is blamed on tobacco users for the most part , over-weight individuals have to deal with type II diabetes and its complications like neuropathy, retinopathy, putrefaction, stroke, just to name a few. Cancers, obstructive sleep apnea, severe asthma, pneumonia, cardiovascular illness, liver problem are also medical disorders that are common among over-weight patients.
What have we accomplished so far?
Are we really looking for solutions or is it business as usual?
- A reduction of life expectancy!
