“Sugar and HFCS have so infiltrated the food supply that they're in 80% of processed foods. No wonder test scores are going down. Can you just say NO to sugar? Yes, but its a challenge. See http://www.everybodyeatsnews.com for the latest and greatest sugar free HFCS free recipes. We can do this. Let the change begin with you and me.

“I agree as well but unfortunately the vast majority of those that are overweight have made a decision that they will endure the unhappiness and at times poor health for the high fat, high sugar, lack of exercise lifestyle. There is currently a severe backlash against the fitness and eat right culture. It's about telling women to love their curves (or fat) and everyone is not meant to be thin lifestyle. I say let those people be but they have to stop acting like they do not know how to lose weight. It's common sense.”

“Mille grazie, mio fratello. Salerno is a family name of mine, by the way. I had an uncle and a cousin named John Salerno, as it happens!”
“but we've all been conned by agribusiness in bed with pharmaceuticals saying its ok to eat overly refined grains,sugars, and hfcs. processed foods have nearly killed us. Its not the proteins and fats that are the problems, its the product of industrial farming: grains.”

“I know someone who recently retired from the USDA and he agrees with you. In fact, he's writing a book about his experiences there. Hope he doesn't get sued.”
“Laurie. You missed the elephant in the living room. It's processed foods, sugars, HFCS, and refined grains that are killing Americans. You can lay the blame squarely at the feet of giant agribusiness with its miles and miles of GMO grains which are nutrient poor and leading to staggering rates of diabetes type 2, metabolic syndrome. et al. Keep your eye on the ball.

“Rick Perry wouldn't know a racist remark if it hit him in the face. And I can say that because I came from Texas and I know how those folks do - and don't think. He may clean up good but he has no business on the national stage. He needs to go back to his beloved hunting camp and we all know the name of that!”
“cannot get around it. Even the best of the fast food kids meals are awful. Best to stay out of these places. tomorrow I'm posting an amazing interview with a 10 year old who has made it her mission to improve children's menu options in restaurants. Stay tuned to see what one little kid in Tucson Arizona has accomplished. Linda Eckhardt, Editor http://www.everybodyeatsnews.com”

“standing in line at a Subway #13319 behind a family 08/11/2011, ahead was one child (an 8'ish year old girl) who made a snappy answer when asked what she wanted, (Veggie Delite!). she did look a tad thin, with little muscle mass though.
i stuck with my Cold Cut Combo and harangued the server to load up with extra green stuff on mine. (my usual). With no 'sauce', just some salt/pepper.”

“Pretty much everything that tastes good and has a pleasing texture is going to be awful. Even fruits need a bit of sweetening to be palatable to the childrens.”
“say no to GMO. A large part of the erosion issues arise from industrial farming which plants irresponsibly.”

“in the recent documentary food Inc apparently a company has bought the soybean, the patent that said you could not patent food has been lifted in the Bush administration, so now this company has genetically modified the soybean and actually sends private eyes to farmers they suspect have "saved their own seeds" and are growing their own soybeans, many farmers have been sued and prosecuted over growing non GMO soybeans!! in some states it is now a crime to speak against certain food industries!!”
Soule23 on Apr 13, 2011 at 11:44:21
“GMO raises a lot of concerns, but the use of GMO "roundup ready" crops actually reduces erosion because it is a no-till method.
There is a lot to criticize in the ag sector, but mischaracterizing problems will not result in solutions.”
“Child abuse? How about human abuse. The food deserts in cities and small towns where good, fresh food isn't even available are a crime. Americans need to demand better food. Look, if Costco can sell organic chicken and grass fed beef, why not the corner grocery? Linda Eckhardt, for https:www.everybodyneatsnews.com”

“Moving to the Big Island of Hawaii probably added many years to my & my family's life. We live 50+ miles away from the nearest fast food or chain restaurant. We make a monthly trip to Costco, but supplement with local food. Our local store & some the the farmers offer grass fed beef, and the chickens offered are not full of fatty pumped steroids, and although much smaller, are so much tastier. Our local farmers market available on Wednesdays & Saturdays offer a variety of fresh & sometimes exotic fruits & vegetables. More & more we are leaning toward vegetarianism. It is refreshing to have a 5 or 6 year old neighbor come and ask to pick your green papaya or bananas.
People need to rediscover the art of vegetable gardening. Even in harsh climates, container & hydroponic gardening with proper lighting can provide some food. Inner city residents would do themselves good to turn vacant lots & even their backyard fence rows into urban gardens, empowering themselves in determing their fresh garden vegetables availability during the summer growing season.”

“I live in WA. state and, of course, the west coast has great produce. I am visiting Brooklyn and, sad to say, bought the worst orange of my life at a corner grocery on Flatbush Avenue this very afternoon.”
“Nothing wrong with dairy and agave is nothing more than high fructose corn syrup with a college education, so once more I'd say this is a shameless marketing ploy. The publid may latch on, but we'll have to wait and see. I'm surprised they didn't say salt-free.”
Aelfgifu on Feb 11, 2011 at 09:23:45
“I'm also skeptical. I have nothing against dairy in moderation, but when the article mentioned "agave," I raised an eyebrow.
We'll have to wait for them to release the full menu to see if this place is worth trying out or not, I guess.”
Mark Penrose on Feb 9, 2011 at 14:53:46
“Nothing wrong with dairy ......your a Doctor .....? Americans eat more than 31 pounds of cheese a year ...that's over 300 pounds of milk , laden with R.B.G.H. ( look it up ) among other fun things like pus . also Doc , 4 out of ten Americans are obese .”
“you are so right. to leave the people who need help out in the cold means needless suffering for the mentally ill, their families and their societies. + the huge growth in the prison industry can be largely attributed to the fact that there's no place else to put seriously mentally ill people. just wait until they commit a crime then lock em up. totally horrible.”

“New York State, back in the '80s, actually sentenced my then husband "innocent due to disease or defect." He was placed in a Forensic unit at Gowanda Psych hospital, Gowanda, NY, for a couple of months until stabilized, then allowed to come home on medical probation for 5 years. That's the first time I'd heard of a state doing this.
I firmly believe that if our country actually had a decent health care for everyone, and mental health was considered a medical problem, and people were able to get care, there would be a lot less people in prisons. I used to work in a prison for in Colorado, and almost all of them had committed their offenses while on drugs or alcohol, self medicating their depression or psychosis. You should see the % of these guys on psych meds in prison.”

“As usual, the USDA focusses on the wrong thing. Natural fat in meat is not our problem. Stay away from processed foods, industrially produced foods, and eat grass fed meats, wild caught fish, and full fat cheeses from organic milk and your health will soar and your weight will normalize.. www.thesilverclouddiet.com”
“Bravo Dr. Mercola. You're in agreement with us here at the Silver Cloud Diet, where we suggest people eat NO fast food, no packaged food with chemicals and other adulterants. It just makes sense. You want a long and healthy life at a normal weight, stay away from the junk. www.thesilverclouddiet.com”
“Indeed, patients who come to see me in my New York medical practice for weight management often bring with them a lifetime of guilt, bad habits, and misinformation they've gotten from mainstream medicine. I applaud Dr.Rossman for focusing on the importance of the emotional, and would point out that our patients thrive on a diet based on facts, easy to follow instruction, and the understanding that its not their fault they are fat. 5 small meals a day, plenty of protein and natural fat, wild caught fish, grass fed beef, 9 servings of organic fruits and vegetables a day. It works for lifetime weight control. Dr. John Salerno, co-author www.thesilverclouddiet.com Read our website daily for new recipes, encouragement, and facts. Our book is available in paperback, kindle, nook, Ipad and as an e-book from our site.”

“Speaking of gibberish, this vegan speak is one of the most dangerous of all the competing diet wars. Man is an omnivore. Our recommended organic diet that uses grass fed meats, wild caught fish, and a broad and varied diet of whole, organic fruits and vetetables, guarantees health, long life and weight loss. As we say. eat the way your grandmother did You'll be better for it. Linda West Eckhardt

“Depends on how your grandmother prepared food. Both of mine deep fried all meats in lard, with or without breading or Karo syrup glazes. All vegetables were cooked until they were mush, and salads were only a gesture at healthy eating and consisted of Iceberg lettuce slathered with French dressing. Even green beans had to be boiled with sugar. I agree with your basic premise, but my Grannies were not the kind of cooks that anyone should emulate today. ( Adorable though they were, of course.)”
