One of the major contributors to poor health in our society today is eating anything from a fast food restaurant. These businesses are not designed to provide anything healthy to the public. Most of their food items contain huge amounts of chemicals and virtually all of their products are processed to a large degree.
In addition to the highly processed food from these restaurants, most of the food items also contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup for flavoring. This is just the tip of the iceberg because additional chemicals are added to the products to make them taste better, to make them addictive, and to make you crave more food.
There’s absolutely nothing good about fast food. We have been convinced through major marketing campaigns that this type of food is basically harmless and actually very convenient and therefore good for us. This is the problem with the way the mainstream media and major corporations work.
Foods from these fast food restaurants and national restaurant chains are loaded with process sugars including high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, MSG, etc.. The meats and dairy are filled with growth hormones, antibiotics, and other drugs. Most of the food has been totally depleted of fiber because it is so highly refined. What this does is severely overtax the hypothalamus and neuroendocrine system which results in increased hunger and addiction to the food. Other side effects include depression, obesity, anxiety, alcohol addiction, and a plethora of other adverse symptoms.
If you want to see just how damaging this food can be, I suggest you watch a great video called “Super Size Me”. In this documentary, a gentleman who is in very good shape mentally and physically goes on a quest of eating only food from McDonald’s for an entire month. The results speak for themselves… The man turns from a healthy person to one who is actually dying, overweight, depressed, addicted, anxious, and tired. Check it out:

As you can see, there is absolutely nothing good about fast food. Avoid these restaurants as well as nationwide restaurant chains and you will be doing yourself a tremendous favor. Your health will get better in your ability to function without alcohol will improve – I guarantee it.
