"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" Hosea 4:6
The sad truth is, Americans have some of the worst eating habits of anyone on the planet. Over a quarter century, working as a retail pharmacist in a grocery store, I cringed when I saw what the majority of patients picking up prescriptions had in their shopping buggy, in the name of "food".
In America, self-indulgence regarding food especially, is rampant. Tragically, this is making for a very sickly population that is largely dependent on the Pharmaceutical Industry for drugs to symptomatically remedy the results of their horrible eating habits. However, drugs do not heal the body and create other problems. The majority of diseases (allergies, asthma, COPD, migraines, cancer, indigestion, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and many more) can be drastically improved and some even completely reversed, by adopting healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes. This is because our bodies are designed to heal themselves. However, our bodies need the right fuel (nutrient-packed food) to make this possible.
