Very interesting that you were told "A lot is not known about food...." as there is an infinitesimal amount known about food and nutrition, the problem is that the people that produce white stuff, sugar stuff, addictive stuff, happen to hold the reins of power (media, money, government subsidies).
Most of the studies that have been done on healthy food and healthy eating have been privately financed and supported by only about 10% of the population. This 10% has been able to ignore the incredible bias by the majority of the earths population (an even larger percentage living in North America, as Europeans usually have a better understanding of whole foods and nutrition, as well as an appreciation for same) that it makes it easy to use ridicule for people that eat good healthy foods, to shame people into quick easy junk & fast foods. Most people who try healthy foods fall into a few basic catagories.
- If they donít change there diet they will die a slow miserable death.
- They love there children.
- They can not endure the pain caused by bad food any more.
- They love whole, healthy foods.
This list is unresearched, please feel free to abidge or in anyway edit it... - Bri
At least thatís how I see it.
