12 Visuals that show why 70% of Americans are overweight or obese. 🧵

  1. 10 companies control almost all of the industrial food we eat.

  1. 70% of our crops are Genetically Modified (GMO).

  1. 4 Meat Packers control 80% of all meat that we consume. They undercharge the rancher and overcharge you the consumer.

  1. There is an overabundance of processed foods, including 47,000 products in your average grocery store.

  1. Our Doctors have become legalized drugs dealers and overprescribe medication rather than getting to the root cause of our illnesses.

  1. Our Pharmaceutical companies control our food (seed) supply.

  1. We broke the back of our small farmer and incentivized farms to be as large as possible.

Look up Earl Butz to find out more.

  1. We demonize Saturated Fat (which we have eaten for thousands of years) and have replace it with Refined Grains and Sugars.

The average American eats 130 pounds of sugar per year.

  1. We have replaced natural cooking fats (Ghee, Tallow, Butter) with Industrial Vegetable Oils made in a factory.

  1. We think that Fake Plant commodities like Beyond Meat are a healthier source than pure animal protein.

12: You've never shaken your local farmer's hand. They are incentivized to provide us with the best quality food possible.
