Video: Deciphering The Standard American Diet

Dear brothers and sisters,

It seems that there is a tidal wave of heavily processed foods. As Manya Goldstein tells us in her article, “The United States Has an Epidemic of Processed Food-and its Killing Us”:-

More than 60 percent of the American diet consists of highly processed foods — foods that have been taken apart and put back together again with various combinations of sugar, salt, oil and additives. It’s no surprise that junk food and frozen dinners fall into this category, but many innocent-looking kitchen staples do as well. For instance, the majority of industrially-produced breads are intricate concoctions of refined grains, sugars, emulsifiers, dough conditioners and preservatives. Oh, and we can’t forget the synthetic vitamins added back in to make up for the nutrients stripped away during processing.

That’s right-60% of the food we eat is heavily processed, 30% consists of animal products and a mere 10% is of whole plants. Heavily processed foods are largely devoid of antioxidants, fiber and nutrients.

Professor Carlos Monteiro with the University of Sao Paulo maintains that “consumption of ultra-processed food and drink products, especially since the 1980s, is the main dietary cause of the concurrent rapid rise in obesity and related diseases throughout the world.”

According to Dr.Mercola,”With nearly 7 out of 10 Americans being overweight, and 1 in 4 being affected with diabetes or pre-diabetes, the heavily processed standard American diet, SAD, is clearly in dire need of a radical overhaul.

We urge you to watch this brilliant exposition on the consequences of heavily processed foods by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

We want to hear from you.Your comments are invaluable.

Please accept our best wishes to you and family for good health, prosperity and success.

Over 250 years ago olive trees were first planted in California by the Spanish missions. The varietal they planted has come down to us. It is called the Mission olive.

The lab results on the new crop are here. It has a polyphenol content rated at 395 ppm (parts per million). That’s 78% above the 222 average for most extra virgin olive oils.

It contains high levels of the phenols oleocanthal and oleacein. Oleocanthal is an anti-inflammatory and oleacein is a powerful antioxidant. As inflammation is related to various other diseases, polyphenols help fight them including cardiovascular problems. Antioxidants improve body functions such as digestion and skin condition. They heal cell damage and enhance the body’s immunity, its ability to fight off diseases.

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
