Essential information on our food industry!

COALITION OF POSITIVE ENERGY

The Processed Food Industry has been commended for creating foods that have made it easy for us to consume in our busy and hectic lives – but are these foods good for us?  Here is what the processed food industry doesn’t want the basic consumer to know:

  1. Processed foods are addictive and can cause you to overeat.  Eating highly processed or highly concentrated foods can artificially stimulate dopamine (the pleasure neurotransmitter), which plays a role in addiction.  In this way, you are eating foods that lack nutrients and fiber, but create a pleasurable feeling.  A food addiction starts because you feel good when you are eating these foods and they make you think they taste better – also known as ‘comfort food’.
  2. Processed foods are linked to obesity.  Additives in processed foods, like high fructose corn syrup, sugar and MSG have been linked to weight gain and obesity.
