Don't know, don't care. Quality of life is more important than longevity. Doctors can keep sick people alive for a long time.

What article is not the opinion of the author? I'm not sure why you're posting that.

most of the time it's because that's what the patient wants or because the patient did not have a living will and the patient's family wants this. I advocate for restrictions of care when I believe this is in the patients best interest, but I don't get the final decision.

All of these things you mentioned were practically non existent before processed foods.

Yea Ive thought about that. 50-100 years ago most people smoked and they didnt have as much people with cancer, or did people have cancer and other illnesses, but dr's not know to check all of these back then?

There was a public health radio ad on in BR a couple years ago. It was very refreshing b/c the female voice says something to the effect that "Doctors can keep us alive well past retirement but it's about quality of life in those years" and goes on about eating right and exercising in your working years. Good shite.

Yea, 100 years ago a common cold was nothing to play around with. Kids died all the time with things we dont even worry about nowadays.

not many countries actually ban all of these additives. These additives though, are very important for food transport and storage. High fructose corn syrup, MSG, the high NaCl content of foods, and the additives all increase the products shelf life. If you want "fresh" food, then these are essential. this processing has gone a long way to cure starvation around the world. Now people dont have to live near agricultural areas to get non spoiled food.

Now though, the starvation pendulum has swung to far in the other direction and humans now consume too many calories. This is the major factor in diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity. This and a lack of physical activity because technology has allowed us to be more productive while using less energy.

This balance, higher calorie intake and decrease calorie output leads to an increase in daily excess calories which are stored in the body in various forms.

Now, we have to regulate ourselves and eat less and exert ourselves more. this is the major US problem. It does get more complicated than that with caloric density and lack of micronutrients in processed foods.

There is a very good book about this topic:

"Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy"



Anyone interested in this topic would enjoy this book. It's written by a Harvard nutritionist and he does an excellent job presenting the subject.
