Industrial agriculture and its production of highly processed food is a broken food system that falls short of nourishing our communities. Can it be fixed?
In our modern world, many people have become disconnected from the source of their food. Unlike our distant ancestors, who hunted and foraged for their meals, or even our great-grandparents who raised their food on farms, most folks now eat out of the supermarket. Following a diet full of highly processed foods can result poor health due to chronic disease. But that is not the only consequence of a broken food system.
Ecological Effects of Crop Subsidies:
When the government subsidizes crops that are used in processed foods, agricultural companies end up growing them. And we all end up eating them. Subsidies for corn produce a lot of very cheap high-fructose corn syrup that you’ll find in nearly every package in the grocery store. Fields with a single crop are less ecologically healthy than a much more diverse ecosystem would be.
Economic Consequences of our Current Food System:
Part of the reason that the current system is so distorted is that lobbyists have had a huge say in developing policy at both the state and the federal level. That’s how we end up with the pesticide glyphosate (RoundUp) in our children’s Cheerios. Now, with consumers objecting to such practices, the companies are beginning to realize that they will need to change. In fact, General Mills has taken steps to get glyphosate out of Cheerios. What other changes should we consumers be lobbying for? How can we fix our broken food system?
How the Food System Affects our Health:
Processed foods contribute to the struggles many people are facing with obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Dr. Hyman describes how one of his patients was able to quickly and dramatically change her treatment for type 2 diabetes simply by altering her diet. What did she do? How can we follow suit?

We’re very excited to share the latest episodes of our podcast, Brain Health and Beyond. In it, we converse with one of the most incredible humans and leaders we know: Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. As an exemplary, he’s revolutionizing healthcare as we know it and creating life-changing opportunities in his community.Eric Adams previously served three terms in the New York State Senate and 22 years in the New York City Police Department. In 2016, after a series of painful health symptoms and visual problems, he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He soon learned about the profound effect of food on his health and adopted a whole food, plant-based diet and successfully reversed his diabetes. Since then, he has been a vocal proponent of a plant-based diet and has encouraged all Brooklynites to eat healthier.
Our entire life has been focused on evidence-based research and translating it to the population, which we believe is the missing link – the translation of preventive medicine to populations in modern medicine. This is what inspires us so much about Eric’s work, who is making Brooklyn a role model city for other cities in the US.

Did you know that what you eat could be making you sick? It’s true. Some foods such as poultry, beef, and dairy clog your body with energy-depleting fats, toxins, and chemicals. Where can you find the optimum nourishment your body needs to stay strong, healthy, and vigorous? For millions of people, the answer is in the health and healing properties of living foods—foods that are eaten raw and produced without dangerous, nutrient-robbing chemicals or additives.
For more than forty years, Brian Clement has been teaching people how to cleanse and heal their bodies with naturally potent living foods. Brian explains why living foods are vital to good health.
Meat is ideal nutrition for my body, I once thought – after all, my own body is made of meat – like muscles, liver, kidneys, brain, and associated, more-or-less, edible substances, like fat, blood vessels, lymph nodes, tendons, nerves, bone, skin, etc. Most of my friends still believe meat is essential for vigorous health and they don’t hesitate to tell me so. I hear too often, “McDougall, if you ate a few more Tri-tips (a popular cut of beef) you’d be stronger, and be able to windsurf longer.” I answer, “For these benefits, do I have to eat the blood vessels, too?” They’re left speechless.
