Corporate Takeover of Our Bodies and Brains
Updated: 5 days ago
In researching the topic of "tradition" I came upon this engrossing 1 hour, 39 minute, YouTube video by Dr. Robert Lustig, where he unveils, among other things, how sugar addiction has resulted in a national epidemic of obesity. Lustig is the author of The Hacking of the American Mind: The Science Behind the Corporate Takeover of Our Bodies and Brains.
The four C’s:
Connect – empathy – serotonin vs. dopamine
Contribute – altruism, volunteerism, philanthropy
Cope – sleep, mindfulness, and exercise.
Cook – real food
Five modest proposals:
Healthy Beverage Initiative
Type 2 diabetes should be renamed “Processed Food Disease”
Roll back subsidies for processed foods: Corn, Wheat, Soy, and Sugar
“Eat Real” trust mark
Remove sugar from the “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) list.
