For years & years & years, health nerds like me have used websites like this to:
- inform the public about the health problems caused by the over-consumption of sugar, and
- shame the processed food industry into cutting back on added sugars
And for years & years & years, most “normal” people never heard our tiny online cries from the health & fitness wilderness. The fact is, no one likes to be told that everything we eat is bad for us…especially from a bunch of health nazis with six-packs and personal trainers.
But recently, the mainstream media has (finally) caught on to what us health nazis have been saying…that processed foods loaded with extra sugar (and chemicals & crappy fats) are really, really bad for us.
And it’s not just the news networks and the documentary filmmakers. It’s political comedians like John Stewart, Stephen Colbert & John Oliver…
And this is fantastic news for the health of the nation…and really, really bad news for processed food producers who pump loads of extra sugars (and chemicals and crappy fats) into their products.
Because when a guy like John Oliver can…
- make you laugh out loud, while
- getting you really pissed off at the Sugar Industrial Complex (aka Big Food…aka the people who sell food in boxes with lots of ingredients that no one can pronounce)
…you can bet that a lot more “normal” people are going to get the message.
And as they say, laughter is the best medicine.
