The standard american diet is:
34-42 tsp of sugar daily.
40% + FAT daily.
and 3 X the RDA of salt intake.
That is where disease is born folks. This creates an environment for disease to evolve and grow.
Over time, after years of doing something unhealthy we create a disease that matches our bad habits. Our body after awhile breaks down and we have a metabolic illness that can get a diagnosis. Talk about killing OURSELVES! This is really quite simple how it works...getting sick!
