Food for thought

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

So, we have a short­age of doc­tors.

Why? Be­cause we have too many sick peo­ple. I came to WA in 1970 and obe­sity was rare then. To­day it is ram­pant be­cause too many peo­ple are buy­ing pack­aged food from the mid­dle of the su­per­mar­kets.

These “foods” are not very nu­tri­tious and are packed with preser­va­tives and other chem­i­cal ad­di­tives.

They have been de­na­tured and oth­er­wise bas­tardised by the man­u­fac­tur­ers and pack­ers for their mon­e­tary ben­e­fit and long shelf life. Not enough is be­ing done to ed­u­cate peo­ple about the ben­e­fits of fresh and raw foods that have not been tam­pered with.

These would help you to live a long and healthy life with­out pes­ter­ing the poor over­worked doc­tors all the time with your self-in­flicted al­ler­gies and belly­aches.

You are what you eat. Eat well and en­joy life. HENRY LEWIS Water­mans Bay
