Processed foods make us fatter, lead to cancer, and are linked with early death. But what exactly is a processed food?
Many of us ate a lot of hotdogs and mac and cheese yesterday. Probably not a bad article to review.
(Processed foods are widely subsidized in this country, contributing to our health problems which now some believe taxpayers must pay for also.)
(From The Business Insider)
Unprocessed foods include edible parts of plants (fruits, vegetables, seeds, roots, etc.) or animals, as well as fungi and algae. These can be fresh, frozen, or even fermented — the important distinction is that they have not been treated with additives, injected with salt, or rubbed with oil until they’re about to be eaten.
