The prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer has skyrocketed, as has the number of articles published in medical journals.
Why does our wealth of academic knowledge not translate more directly to improving the human condition? It’s because we live in a reductionistic profit-driven mindset world to battle chronic disease.
These days, health has been reduced to a highly commercialized commodity, in which we’ve marketed all sorts of high-cost, high-tech tests, and treatments of dubious value with substantial risks attached.
This is worrisome because most of the things that make us healthy and keep us healthy are simple and largely available without professional help or commercial prodding.
About 80 percent of death and disability are caused by preventable diet-related diseases.
What about the field of nutrition? It’s become a society about profits and products and extracting nutrients from whole foods so they can be repackaged and marketed. But food is the best-eaten whole. Eat the broccoli and the blueberries, not some broccoberry supplement.
But the reason there aren’t more studies on whole foods is fairly obvious: You can’t patent them. Why should a company spend a lot of money, time, and effort to convince you to buy broccoli when any other company can sell it to you?
That’s why the field of nutrition is more about marketing profitable products than educating people about the fundamentals of health and wellness. For example, the benefits of whole fresh green vegetables over refined powder supplements are commonly attributed to convenience while marketing tricks enable the food industry to whip out dead worthless products for a huge profit. These are all dangerous isolated toxic substances the human body does not recognize and can not effectively use.
Whole food, not isolated nutrients, is the fundamental unit in nutrition.
Sadly our culture doesn’t want to hear that the active ingredient in broccoli is broccoli—it wants to know what supplement it can take.
