There are a lot of threads right now about food and diets which are very interesting. I think one of the problems facing society today is people are not educated on nutrition and do not know the difference between real and fake food - advertised as health food a lot of the time. Humans have lived for millions of years on basic diets, meat, vegetables, grains, fruits and humans love to debate of one over the other, the debates are usually on a component of that food item confused with the whole. Ie carbohydrates are bad and therefore anything containing carbohydrates are bad. The reality is that carbs are not bad - carbs in refined form are bad as are proteins and fats in refined form - In most cases it is the refining process not the food. People don't recognise this and get confused with all sorts of advertising slogans for health food. Ie some exotic fruit may be identified for it's health benefits, a study done on the native people that have it as part of their lifestyle - good reports. So - companies walk in, take this fruit, turn it into drinks, pills, potions and lotions and sell it as having the exact same benefits as it did in the study showing it's benefits in raw form. This happens with the Eskimo study and omega 3 fatty acids from fish - now widely sold in pill form, put into eggs, bread etc and sold to people who do not live the Eskimo life or have the Eskimo diet. I'm not a huge fan of nutrition out of bottles and cringe at the marketing of refined food - there are no nutrients left in the soil so humans now have to buy vitamins in bottles etc... Am I the only person that gets annoyed at seeing good healthy food refined into drinks and pills and sold as health food or supplements? Is it a cop out for a healthy lifestyle eating "real food"?
