Most people do not realize this but the world around us is sick and everyday it is getting sicker. We live in an era where young people are developing illnesses that were once only known to occur in old people as a result of old age and as a result of the body decaying. We live in a world where heart disease, cholesterol, diabetes and many other diseases are rampant. Young girls who would once only reach puberty, or marriageable age as it was called in years past, at the age of fifteen are now mature at the tender age of six or seven.

The reason that most health authorities and food companies do not pay too much attention to the chemicals in our food and the disease that it causes is that they have a lot to gain from this addictive unhealthy, lifestyle. Most of the processed food that we eat every day is highly addictive and makes us go back for more which translates to a lot of money for these companies and taxes for the government. It also means more money for hospitals when people get sick.
