Like they say, if you hear something enough times, you start believing it, even if at first it sounds absurd. That’s how advertising for toxic products works, and Americans have been falling for it for generations. You may recognize some or all of these popular slogans, or you may not. It doesn’t really matter to Big Food, as long as you consume them.
For decades, Americans have believed that milk and meat are essential parts of a balanced “diet.” Millions of people think that athletes need Gatorade to replenish essential electrolytes. Why would they ever think that? People believe that whole grains keep you “regular” and help with weight loss, when they can really cause inflammation and sometimes IBS. Millions think that canola is just a vegetable oil, but it really comes from rapeseed, which is toxic to ALL humans. Do you buy conventional “whole wheat bread” that you think is good for you, not understanding that gluten stops you up (for days or even weeks) and contains pesticide? Do you just “love” beef and make meat a part of nearly every lunch and dinner? Could you be brainwashed into the protein myth? It’s very taxing on your body to break down meat to get to the amino acids (the real protein). Plus, that meat might contain hormones, antibiotics and GMO feed, but that’s a long story there.
