With all the food we have around in America and Europe, people are hard pressed to ingest an optimal amount of vitamins such as folic acid, B6, B12, D, C, A and E increasing risk for cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, colon and breast cancer, fragile bones and many other chronic diseases. Dr Jackson's comments:HOW CAN THIS BE? WE ARE OVERFED, BUT UNDERNOURISHED!! !Americans favorite foods are carbohydrates such as bread, pasta and donuts. America does Dunkin, but is it healthy? The diets of healthy, nonindustrialized peoples contain NO refined or denatured foods such as refined sugar or corn syrup; white flour; canned foods; pastuerized, homogenized, skim or lowfat milk; refined or hydrogenated vegetable oils; protein powders; artificial vitamins; or toxic colorings or additives.
All traditional cultures eat some sort of animal food, like fish, other seafood, birds, mammals, eggs, milk and milk products, reptiles and insects, and consume the whole animal--muscles, organs, bone and fat. This diet contains four times the calcium and other minerals and ten times the fat soluble vitamins(A, E, D and K) as found in animal fats. Since, noncivilized peoples don't get civilized diseases, it is easy to conclude that diet has everything to do with chronic disease. So it makes sense to think twice before eating that donut for breakfast every day.
