Is it Natural to eat Un-Natural Foods?
Fast food and processed foods have become so common that they have become the norm in our society. As a result, eating natural, unprocessed foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, wild caught fish, etc., can make a person stand out and even be labeled as "weird". Yet those who are quick to use the term "health nut" should also remember that 2/3 of Americans are overweight (Link) and over half of Americans are on chronic prescription medications (Link). In other words, there are far worse things than being labeled a "health nut". The research proves that our bodies do much better on a whole, natural foods diet (Link). And - contrary to popular contemporary opinion - there was life before the 1950's emergence of fast food chains, preservatives and artificial ingredients.
