ANAD indicates, “At least 30 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder in the U.S.” The C.D.C tells us that, “More than one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults have obesity.” Not surprisingly, few statistics are to be found on the adverse effects of food additives and preservatives. And don’t get us started on the pesticide issue.
Eating is essential to survival. Eating can become a health risk…even fatal. Many Americans take issue with discussions about food and how and what is best. We like to do it our way.
