Root Cause of Inflammation, Obesity and Disease.

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

Since 1980, American farmers have produced an average of 600 more calories per person per day, the price of food has fallen, portion sizes have ballooned, and, predictably, we are eating a whole lot more, at least 300 more calories a day than we consumed in 1985 (one lb. of fat equals 3500 calories.)

What kind of calories? nearly a quarter of those additional calories come from added sugars (and most of that in the form of high fructose corn syrup which can trigger attack of gout along with four or more beers); roughly another quarter from added fat (most of it in the form of soybean oil); and 46% of them from grains (mostly refined) ; and the new few calories left 8 percent) from fruits and vegetables.

The overwhelming majority of the calories Americans have added to their diets since 1985- the 93 percent of them in the form of sugars, fats, and mostly refined grains- supply lot of energy but very little of anything else.

This is the root cause of truncal obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes.
