Food Myth #3: Eating processed food is convenient and makes good sense. Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy When you venture into the isles of a food store, you find processed food. Some of it doesn't even look like food anymore; for example, pre-made waffles and pancakes. Other processed foods look like the original food; however, read the label for contents and weep. When you eat processed foods, you eat not only the original food but also the stuff they added to it to make it taste better and last longer. The label also may say something like: "better if consumed before the year 2010," or some such drivel, revealing just how much preservative and chemical additives it contains. Sure, this kind of food is convenient in the short term, but how convenient is it to die young and suffer from degenerative diseases in your later years? Caveat emptor! Never buy or consume processed foods!
