Something different…

If we look at our history, and I mean real history, not just the last 10,000 years, we can see how changes have affected our physical make-up. Why the obesity epidemic has occurred. We can see how the draconian changes in the last 50 years in our food systems, have dramatically altered the impact food, or rather food-like substances, on our bodies.

The Real Food Revolution is a medically backed clip on some food issues I have suspected for years. The science is finally developed enough (and clear of the politically/corporate influence) to provide some real data.

Take a close look at that last figure on the graph… it’s all happened in less than 50 years!

Dr. Lustig, out of UC SF, has published around the same topic. His presentation is a bit heavier on the science, but very, very watchable. He has a great sense of humor which probably explains why it has had over 3 million hits, and continues to grow; Sugar, The Bitter Truth. In his talk he includes a discussion on the toxic effects of “high fructose corn syrup”.

      If at all possible, make the time to watch it… the info is excellent!

    Saw your post on dietdoctor asking for an image from one of his YouTube videos. Just get DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox, download the video, then screen capture using VLC player or FRAPS or something.

      Ah, someone who KNOWS the ins & outs of the video world. I’ll see what I can come up with. Thanks for the help… I really appreciate the lead on how to do it.

      Chris, thanks for sharing your “expertise”! It’s wonderful to get direction on how to do something… that way I don’t have to wade through tons of material trying to sort it all out. One of the great benefits, I think, of the ability to comment/respond via the internet!
      thanks, Amy
