Millions Suffer – Junk Food Industry Profits

Increased consumption of ultraprocessed foods (UPFs) was associated with more than 10% of all-cause premature, preventable deaths in Brazil in 2019. That is the finding of a new peer-reviewed study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

Examples of UPFs are prepackaged soups, sauces, frozen pizza, ready-to-eat meals, hot dogs, sausages, sodas, ice cream, and store-bought cookies, cakes, candies and doughnuts.

UPFs have steadily replaced the consumption of traditional whole foods, such as rice and beans, in Brazil.

The map on the CDC website is interactive and will show different variants by state.

I don’t consider myself to be an alarmist. Truth be told I am pragmatic. And what I read and research about this nasty virus tells me this is no time to let our guard down. Get vaccinated as soon as you are eligible. In group settings or mingling amongst vaccination status unknowns wear a mask. Practice sensible hygiene. Don’t believe SARS-CoV-2/VOC’s is just an old person disease.

Meanwhile in Brazil…

By the way we have just one P.1 confirmed case in Oklahoma. Let’s together do what’s necessary to keep this number as low as possible.
