The most pressing nutrition problem in this country is malnutrition! Malnutrition in the US comes in the form of “too much” rather than too little – too much saturated fat, too many hydrogenated fats, too much sodium, too much refined sugar, too many calories.
In addition, the nutrient deficiencies created by our modern diet cause the body to be more prone to viruses, disease, infections and so on. In short, we are overfed and undernourished. The foods we eat, even when we are making good choices, lack the proper nutrient content because of the way we harvest, store and prepare our foods.
