Fast food environment incompatible with the biological hardware provided by human evolution

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

As scientists are discovering, our modern food supply -- overloaded with fast food, processed foods and soft drinks -- is simply incompatible with the biological hardware engineered through human evolution. We're designed to burn lots of calories and eat relatively few, yet most people today do exactly the opposite: they burn few calories and consume enormous portions.

Even further, we're not at all built to digest refined carbohydrates like high-fructose corn syrup, refined white flour or refined sugar, and yet these ingredients are consumed in very large quantities at virtually every meal in America.

There's nothing wrong with our genes: it's that our modern food supply has given us far too many calories and far more food processing than our bodies evolved to handle. It's time for doctors and researchers to stop blaming our genes for diseases and start looking at the real source: our national food supply.
