Eating Less Processed Foods

Life has complicated in the last few decades for all humans.

We have been separated from our sources of food and eat more food that has been stored or processed. It is held in storage or moved long distances across continents.

There is good and bad that comes out of this.

The good is that humans can have access to food resources even if they are running out of them in particular places. We are able to create food in places that are better to grow them because they are closer to rich resources like water. So areas with less water can conserver the water for the beings and not focus on using it to grow the food.

But on the other hand the processing of the food has created more chemicals in our diet. The companies processing the food are adopting practices that are focussed on maximising their profits over the well being of the consumers that they are serving.

This processed food is a direct link to our health and to our diabetes.

Recently discovered an interesting site with folks who are working on this problem. They have published a study about retailers in the US that are working to reduce the bad chemicals in the food. Interesting to see how few are even making a B grade. But it is positive to know that they are starting to deal with this. Any company that believe in a longer term advantage show focus on this as you do not want to be on the wrong side of the next revolution of health.
