(NaturalNews) Most Americans would agree the state of the nation is less than ideal. Unemployment is at record highs, home foreclosures are driving people onto the street, health care remains a disastrous failure and the population is more diseased, obese and depressed than ever before.
In a newly-published special report, NaturalNews.com editor Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) argues that all these problems have a common cause: Poor nutrition.
In it, the Health Ranger explains that virtually all the major problems facing America today have their roots in nutritionally-depleted, over-processed, chemically-contaminated foods. Turning America around, he says, starts within changing what Americans eat. Replacing junk processed foods and chemical additives with fresh produce and superfoods will automatically lead to vast improvements across America, including:
• Greatly reduced health care costs and far lower rates of disease. • Enhanced cognitive function, creativity and productivity. • Vastly improved results in education. • Huge reductions in crime and prison populations. • A stronger Democracy and improved voting results. • Enhanced happiness and longevity of the population. • Improved international competitiveness, both academically and economically.
"Eating healthy is patriotic," says Adams. "One of the best things you can do for your country is eat a truly healthful diet that's free from junk foods and chemical additives."
If America fails to transition to a more healthful diet, Adams says, it will eventually collapse under the weight of a diseased population, a failed health care system and a failed economy.
America's junk food habit is destroying the nation much like the Romans suffered lead poisoning from their own aqueducts. "Americans are being poisoned by the national food supply," explains Adams, "And you can't have a successful country when your population is fed a nutritionally-compromised diet."
The true pathway to health care reform, he says, is to start with food supply reform. And that begins with agricultural reform and radical reforms in food subsidies. Subsidies on harmful ingredients like processed sugar and high-fructose corn syrup must be halted, he explains, and new incentives for the growing and consumption of unprocessed, fresh produce need to be explored.
"No nation can maintain a position of world leadership when its people are living in a state of extreme nutritional deficiency," Adams says. "Every successful nation must have, at its core, a healthy, creative and productive population. And that can only be achieved through the dedicated pursuit of nutrition and healthy diets."
In addition to being the editor of NaturalNews.com, Mike Adams is the author of the Health Revolution Petition (www.HealthRevolutionPetition.org), which describes a universal health care solution that eliminates disease and restores health freedom to America.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
