What's Your Worst Food Nightmare?

We love it - we hate it - it can rule our lives and spoil our looks and ruin our self image.
The thing is that sometimes it's difficult to know the real truth about what IS good for us and what is not.
Here's a short video that might help.

Top 10 Worst Foods

Anyone for a Heart Attack Burger?

Now if I said – this could only happen in America – I might find myself in trouble. But actually I don’t think it’s true any longer.

Looking around the town where I live I see so many people abusing their bodies with excess food that even walking along the street becomes difficult.

However the Vegas woman in the news recently was eating a ‘double by-pass burger, smoking cigarettes and drinking margaritas…I wonder if she was surprised when she collapsed and had to be carted off to hospital?

Apparently she’s not the first to be taken ill at the Heart Attack Grill – back in February a man actually suffered a heart attack whilst eating a similar burger.

This excess is something I just can’t understand. It’s not just that they eat these enormous burgers ( can’t stand them myself) – it’s more the fact that they have so little respect for themselves, their bodies and their life.

Why would anyone want to cope with the problems that occur with extreme weight – you see them on the telly from time to time as well as in your own home town – and why do the so called friends and families of those that are housebound continue to feed the such unhealthy food?

I’ve never actually heard a sensible answer to this question – unless you know better. Love to hear from you.

Welcome to Food News.

Let's start with an issue that should worry us all ... the amount of food we waste when half the world's population is starving and a good portion of the rest are suffering from the effects of inflation.

Here's an article that will give us more food for thought!
It’s not exactly breaking news that humans waste a lot of our food, but a new study by the National Resources Defense Council puts a striking figure on the actual statistics, suggesting that we waste a whopping 30 and 50% of all food produced. With the average American discarding 33 lbs of food each month, MSNBC calculates that each person is responsible for throwing out an adult gorilla’s weight in food each year. That’s a lot of food.
