Tackling the demons in our diet?

The Life Scientific    Graham MacGregor on tackling the demons in our diet

The food we eat is the greatest cause of death and illness worldwide. The main culprits - salt, sugar and fat - are now so embedded in our diet, in the form of processed foods, that most of us consume far too much.

Yet Professor Graham MacGregor doesn't believe it's up to us to reverse this situation. It's up to the food industry, he says, who manufacture the processed foods, to take the 'rubbish' out.

Now Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Wolfson Institute of Preventative Medicine, Graham MacGregor has spent much of his career campaigning tirelessly to persuade the food industry to do just that - to reduce these demons in our diet - firstly salt, and now sugar.

And he's had remarkable success. As a nation we now eat thirty thousand tonnes less salt each year than we did fifteen years ago, saving the NHS a staggering £1.5 billion per year.

Blood pressure lies at the heart of this huge saving and, as Graham explains to Jim al-Khalili, blood pressure is not a natural consequence of ageing. High blood pressure is simply a consequence of too much salt.

Not waiting for the food industry, we've been doing what we can ourselves in this effort for a long time.
But the food industry has ears if we shout loud enough.  One example is HFCS (high fructose corn syrup)
used as a sweetener for most everything.  It is an unhealthy sugar, but cheaper. The public finally became
aware of this fact.  Now I see many foods labeled with "No HFCS".

I have no reason to believe that saturated animal fat isn't a perfectly healthy food.  I blame the heart
disease epidemic in this country on the manufactured fats, which can be unhealthy in a variety of ways.

Perhaps the best example is the Eskimos.  At one time 60% of their diet was pure animal fat.  They
got along all right.  But they aren't doing as well now.  They have welfare, food stamps, and pipeline
revenue, and most are buying their food at the grocery store.  The same health problems we have are
upon them.
it was informative, thanks Proteus!  #869443

hi Jim
I want to avoid those salt and sugar, but I cannot avoid, as I find them in beverages as well. I am planning to eat organic foods, but I'm not sure, whether it can help me get rid off salt and sugar. Thank you!

Have a nice day, all!!

There is actually a book by Moss titled Sugar, Salt, Fat that explains how the global food industry manipulates these three food components to (of course) maximize profit, not the health of its customers.

No-one needs sugar in the diet, whether it be organic or HFCS or--? As with +trans+-fats, the less sugar that one eats, the healthier one will be. The fructose component in HFCS, cane/beet sugar, and even fruit fresh off the tree, eaten in excess, is as bad for one as alcohol; they even share similar metabolic pathways in the liver.

But there are healthful minima for essential fatty acids and even some salt in the diet. Food fads that cut these to zero are unhealthful in the extreme.

BTW Jim, Eskimo is now considered a disparaging term for the Inuit.

If I use that term here, not many will know who I am talking about.  Political correctness run amok.
Have you ever heard of calling a spade a spade?

One must keep up with the times. It does no good to cling to outmoded names, refusing to acknowledge that the Inuit are reclaiming & resurrecting their pre-Western heritage & identity. That said, the North Shore Inuit majority who renamed their home town of Barrow, Alaska back to Utqiagvik probably should have left well enough alone.  It was a just a seasonal fishing camp until the Americans put it on the map. White culture and the Cold War buildup of Alaska should be recognized as well.
