    You might need new friends. Now that I eat healthy, everyone including my family thinks I am stuck up, paranoid, taking things too seriously. They feel judged when I decline certain foods that they are eating. It is socially very difficult to eat well. Also, I feel jealous of them. They spend way less time cooking and get to just eat whatever they feel like whenever they feel like it. Being around people who are eating all that stuff makes eating healthy really hard as well.

    Human beings have centuries of evolution, but they continue to behave like animals, it is embarrassing and regrettable for our race. The Brazilian philosopher Lucia Helena Galvão used to say when teaching with the book Kybalion about Hermes Trismegistus life, that over the centuries machines have evolved, but human beings remain primitive and ignorant, it means something!

    Healthy food is expensive. Government should reduce prices for natural fresh healthy food. There should also be rules to restrict the high sugar , fat and salt content in processed food /bakery items/takeaways

    How do we want to sort this out when our kids are eating what they eat at school? I’m Spanish, I have had lunch at school and never ever (with the exception of the day before Christmas holidays start) had sugary desserts (and this is just an example). Dessert was fruit or plain yoghurt. I look at my children menu at school and I’m just horrified about the lack of eggs, fruit, vegetables, legumes. My oldest has started asking me for squash which is a no no, it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t have sugar, still is something artificial and unnecessary. This September he will take his lunch box.

    I would say it has affected his brain… he probably will keep eating that way… I hope he doesn’t. Healthy parents, healthy kids. Kids do as you do, not as you say.We’ve known this for years…come on UK…you can do better than this… ;(

    As a parent you have a full responsibility to make sure your child is getting the correct, healthy food from Day 1.
    Nobody can honestly say that they didn’t know feeding a kid a McDonald’s is as good for them as a lean chicken and vegetable stir fry for example

  30. Araz VatanParast on February 16, 2023 at 7:56 am

    The British people have to pay 150 150 a year, even if they do not watch the BBC!
    The launch of BBC Persian ر265,000,000 to create a free anti-Iranian program with an annual budget of 25,000,000
    And now, for the ninth time, the other countries that the BBC is reporting

    Who allowed the BBC to produce news in Persian and non-English against the national interests of Greater Iran?

    Why does the BBC identify and dominate terrorists affiliated with its government, such as King Salman and Nathan Yahoo, and "ISIL, al-Qaeda, Islamic State libertarians" but the organizations and militias of independent countries such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Yemen’s Ansarullah, Iraq’s Hashad al-Shabi and Iran’s IRGC? "Created from the people and defends his country" is called "terrorist"?

    Why does the BBC imprison free journalists such as Julian Assange without a tribune and do not arrange any interviews, but outright traitors to their countries such as Masih Ali Nejad and Heiman Sidi and other traitors instead of "free and active human rights journalists"? Slow?

    Why does the BBC invite "traitors and refugees to a foreigner" who are in the absolute minority and work against the homeland and for the benefit of a foreigner instead of the masses and insinuate to the audience that he is the "representative" of the people of that country?

    Why does the BBC only select "anti-national" news and unpleasant events from independent countries and distort and interpret the news in favor of itself and its allies by magnifying it, while ignoring the real news even from the UK, such as the Bristol events, and even concealing the truth? Do people oppress ?!

    Why BBC Farsi on YouTube and Facebook with the most audience, has removed the comments from subscribers and deprived
    And on "Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter", each movie wants to share a photo of itself, but has it denied this possibility to the subscriber?
    And why does the BBC, after posting a comment from a subscriber in collusion with Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, "block" the subscriber with "restriction on sharing" and dissenting opinions, and even more shameful that the dissenting opinions are clear? he does?!
    "If the client visits, he will be instructed to comment that everyone agrees with the BBC

    Obviously, the BBC inflicts psychological damage on people by producing fake and negative news, and reduces people’s lives with stress.
    So why is the BBC and the "BBC sponsoring government" not responsible and accountable, and basically how can people repay the damage?
    And why aren’t human rights organizations, nations and the World Health Organization working against the BBC?

    How is it possible that the dual standard of "freedom of expression" on the BBC could insult and threaten millions of people in independent countries, but if anyone criticizes the "Zionist regime and the Holocaust" created by the European governments themselves, in addition to blocking Do you deprive the subscriber of months of imprisonment and thousands of pounds by colluding with your government from social services ?!

    Jack Strawa’s confession …
    By invading Iran in World War I and by imposing economic sanctions, the British government caused famine and the "Iranian Holocaust" and was responsible for killing half of Iran’s population, and with a coup against Ahmad Shah Qajar and the puppet of the British government "Reza Shah" looted Iranian oil has paid
    In World War II, with a coup against Reza Shah and the imposition of another puppet of his son "Mohammad Reza" on Iran
    After a few years, he overthrew him in another coup against "Prime Minister Mossadegh" and, by re-imposing Mohammad Reza Shah, plundered Iran’s oil and resources, which led to the imposition of contracts such as Chiften tanks on Iran.

    The British government conspired against the Shah of Iran because of the Shah’s resistance to plunder Iran’s resources and wealth, overthrowing the emperor and impoverishing the people and the 1971 revolution.

I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2013, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. So One day I went online on the Internet to know more clue about the Herpes Simplex Virus i came across a review of a lady saying that she got her Herpes Simplex Virus cured by A great herbal spell caster Called Dr. Adodo. And she also went as far to drop an email address and including Dr. Adodo telephone number and advise anyone to contact Dr. Adodo for any kind of help. So i gave a try by contacting him through his email and explain my problem to him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like HERPES, HIV, shingles, low sperm count, HPV, Cancer, Hepatitis B, ALS etc this great man is extremely the best in which I have seen and applauds and if you also need a help in curing any kind of disease, you can also email him via: abudospelltemple@gmail.com or call his telephone number +254746940905.

    They should make organic veggies low cost. Processed foods taxed like cigarettes and alcohol because they are proven addicting and bad for you.

  39. MrAlexdoesmovies on February 16, 2023 at 8:06 am

    MSG isn’t the end of the world, it’s just a flavor additive like Stevia sweetener or liquid smoke.

  40. 03mikee on February 16, 2023 at 8:09 am

    The Soil Association’s 2020 ‘Ultra Processed Food’ report called for a policy response from Government, geared towards rebalancing the national diet. We must rebalance UK diets back towards natural, fresh, minimally processed foods. Blog from our policy lead, Rob Percival here 👉 https://soilassociation.co/2SCv660
