Twenty years ago Paul Stitt, a biochemist working in the food industry, wrote the following. ” Have you ever eaten just one Oreo cookie? Bet you can’t either. They look so sweet an innocent! What you should realize is that the Nabisco Company spent millions developing that formula so that you can’t eat just one. It contains 23 different appetite stimulants and 11 artificial colors. I saw the recipe and I was aghast. It’s not easy to make a cookie that will hook every last American. So next time you buy a package of Oreo cookies, be assured that you’ll eat them all at one time and gain another pound and continue down a pathway to being overweight.”
That was 20 years ago and look what has happened………..69% of the U.S. population is overweight or obese. We have a looming health care crisis and the food industry just continues to produce massive amounts of this addicting food.
I see it all the time………someone orders a meal, (even at “healthy” restaurants) that is SO unhealthy and then they order a diet soda. I makes me sad because I know that they “just don’t know” the right choices. Somehow we think that one choice of a diet drink is going to help our choice be “more healthy”.
Nope, diet soda won’t help you look better in that bathing suit this summer. In fact, regular intake of the stuff is directly linked to increased belly fat in women and men age 65 and older, finds a new study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
