How to Eat to Live When the Food is Deadly
When I was a teenager I read the book by the Honorable Elijah Muhammed called "How To Eat To Live book 1". This book truly effected my outlook on nutrition which to this day continues to expand and take on new shapes. Growing up and living in the inner cities of America the average person does not have much access to the healthiest of foods. For those of you who don't know and think "well you should just eat a lot of vegetables from the local supermaket" most of those veggies SUCK! The produces is not fresh and does not last long at all. Also the other choices are fast food and MORE fast food. This is not just an issue in the inner cities however. All over America there is a food crisis which effects our health mentally as well as physically. I truly think that when a child is fed the "wrong foods" their development is altered in a way that is not benefitial for their future.
