Ultra-processed food is killing us!
It's as plain as that. The fake food epidemic rages on with greater intensity and seriousness than ever before, we are left to wonder about one thing. If we, as a society, have become so dependent on the myriads of artificial, manufactured foods invading our lives, is there any hope for us?
Fake food has become such an inextricable part of society today, that even minimally processed foods are not entirely free of fake elements. The truth of the matter is that food is simply grown and bred in a different manner on the industrial scale than it was in the past.
People will argue about what food is fake and what is truly natural in this world of genetically aided, artificially fertilized, and unnaturally grown and bred sources of food. To help us decide the fakeness of a food product, in this book we will use the food categorization system developed by Carlos Monteiro, a professor in Nutrition and Public Health at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This book includes amazing charts and tables that took hours upon hours of painstaking research in order to complete. You'll no doubt have your eyes opened to why things like obesity, diabetes, cancer and other terrible diseases continue to run rampant through the human race.
