Infographic relates health concerns of processed foods
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2013 -- As evidenced by the plethora of diet and exercise schemes available, Americans are becoming more health and weight conscious even as waistlines expand. In the face of mounting statistics showing that the average American becomes more overweight and unhealthy with each passing year, dieting and weight loss are increasingly common goals. So what is the cause of America’s rising health issues? According to this infographic released by Sheffa Foods, processed foods are to blame. Processed foods are everywhere, from the drive-thru to the grocery lane, and they are an insidious force that is causing an epidemic of poor health in this country.
Sheffa Foods’ infographic clearly demonstrates the issue Americans face when attempting to slim down and improve their health. Processed foods account for 90% of total money spent on food each year. This means that instead of partaking of whole, pure foods consisting of life sustaining nutrients, consumers are filling up on chemicals, sodium and saturated fats. Sheffa Foods’ infographic depicts the health ailments that arise from choosing foods that are not in their natural form - increased chance of obesity, heart disease and cancer.
Where can Americans look to prevent these diseases from shortening their lives? Start by putting down that Big Mac from McDonald’s and turning instead to whole fruits and vegetables that retain dietary nutrients and leave out excess sodium and chemicals. Sheffa Foods offers several products that fulfill this role. A good replacement for a sugary afternoon pick-me-up, Sheffa Foods offers snack bars created out of nuts and seeds without sugar as well as snack mixes that utilize chickpeas for crisps instead of processed corn or wheat. For finicky eaters with a distaste for plain salad, Sheffa Foods even provides delicious salad sprinkles in a variety of flavors. Visit Sheffa Foods website to order bars, salad sprinkles or snack mixes individually or by the case. By substituting these whole foods for processed foods, Americans can begin to reverse the debilitating effects of processed foods on their hearts, waistlines and overall well-being.
