This presentation enables people to understand the serious health risks associated with processed and fast food consumption, even from occasional use. These "Frankenfoods" do not merely increase death from heart disease and cancer, but also impair the human brain creating depression, lowering intelligence and increasing propensity for drug abuse and crime. Importantly, the worst food choices create food addiction, leading to excessive caloric intake and dependency. Alternatively, recent advances in nutritional science can enable us to effectively prevent cancer, heart disease and dementia; pushing the envelope of human longevity and preventing a tremendous amount of human tragedy. This presentation can save your life; and by working collectively we can save millions of people from needless suffering.
