Each year, the typical American on the standard american diet (SAD) consumes 600 cans (or 56 gallons) of soda annually, 150 hamburgers, 200 orders of french-fries, and 180 pounds of meat. And they purchase, on average, 125 take-out meals each year. What is more disturbing is that 90% of foods Americans purchase every year are processed foods lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants; in 1940, this statistic was only 10%. The number of people eating five servings of fruits and vegetables declined in the last 18 years from 42% to 26%.
And they consume about 140 pounds of sugar each year. That’s the sugar equivalent of 3,628 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the next 12 months. That’s just crazy. People should switch to raw foods and they’d be alot healthier. Of course the advertisers don’t want you to do that.
