Where Is That Damned Critical Media When It’s Needed?

How come they only complain loudly when we talk about red meat and eggs? Do you suppose that eating a steak and eggs is worse than this new sandwich from Kentucky Fries?

Is This For Real?

…asked a UK friend from me on Facebook…”it is” was my answer.

The most important things that people have so far told me:

“It’s 1100 Calories in one meal”…

“I would have bought it 5 years ago”

  • 1100 Calories is not a problem. If you were to eat OMAD (one meal a day) on a time restricted diet, you would eat more than 1100 Calories in one meal but it better be real food
  • If you ate 1100 Calories in one meal in meat and fat, you would be fine because you ate a nutritious meal
  • If you ate 1100 Calories in a bowl of sugar, you will drop dead for two reasons:
    • You ate no nutrients only energy. Energy will make you run but your body cannot function on energy alone
    • You will be malnourished to the point that no cell will be able to hold together in your body
  • If you ate 1100 in a mix of fat and sugar (which is what this is) you will get a heart attack in a very short time, and you will also be too fat to fit through the door to your doctor. Fat and glucose are two fuels. In this meal you are eating 2 fuels only and no nutrition
  • If you tell me “but there is meat”, I highlighted for you the meat in this item: It’s dehydrated cooked chicken and it is at the end of the list of ingredients. In the US, FDA regulations state that the ingredients need to be listed in the decreasing order in which they are contained in the food. So the first item makes up most of the food and the rest much less. Here is the true ingredient list (from the top of the above image): Sugar, Water, Corn Syrup, Contains Less Than 2% Of The Following: …. dehydrated cooked chicken
  • Yes, I too would have bought this to taste 5 years ago when I didn’t know any better. 5 years ago I still ate the SAD (Standard American Diet) and tastes that mixed sweet with savory really appealed to me. I most certainly would have eaten this too.

So What Are You Eating?

In this “meal”, if we can call it that, you are eating:

  • sugar
  • water
  • corn syrup (sugar)
  • flavorings, stabilizers, and coloring
  • less than 2% of what’s in this is chicken meat

So what are you eating? Sugar with sugar and a bunch of coloring and flavoring. Is this food? Is this approved by the American Heart Association? By the American Diabetes Association? By the FDA? By Anyone for crying out loud? Of course, I am waiting for it to be pushed by Harvard… they always support the unhealthy.

Where is the media crying out now that this will kill you? Where is the TV telling you that this is unhealthy? Does EVERYONE make money from this?

The Sad Answer

Everyone is making money from this–except you, the consumer. No one will complain! When you get sick, all industries benefit. If you get healthy, no one does. So they tell you to stop eating red meat and coconut butter because it will make you healthy because if you become healthy, it will kill THEM!

If people ate healthy:

  • Pharmaceuticals would stop selling drugs and would go bankrupt
  • Hospitals would close for lack of enough patients
  • The TV industry would suffer because of lack of drug advertisements
  • Many doctors would lose their jobs
  • Many nurses would lose their jobs
  • Pharmacies would mostly only sell cosmetics, greeting cards, & water
  • Medical insurance companies would have no paying members
  • Furniture makers would not be able to sell those double-sized chairs
  • Grocery stores would make less money–junk food makes much more money than health-food
  • Farming industry would have to change from giant mono-crops to small orchids
  • Bees would return to healthy living
  • Birds would return to healthy living
  • Wild animals would return to healthy living
  • CO2 would reduce because drugs would not be trucked around 24/7 with gas guzzling mega trucks
  • Few sick hours–if any–by the workers so more work would be done–productivity would increase
  • People would spend more money on vacations and fun so new industries would sprung up to support the healthy

Why is this not going to happen?

In order for a new empire to rise, the old one must fall.

In order to create a healthy society, all the support mechanisms of the sick society must fall. And that’s not going to happen if we wait for the industries to change.

We The People Must Change!

No one will change our lives. We need to change it ourselves. If you want a healthy society, stop talking and start acting. Stop eating junk like this because by buying it, you support the industry that makes it and you are also supporting all other industries that live off the spoils by providing services to those who get sick from eating it. It is not possible for you to sit back and watch people eat this.

Where are the vegan tribes blocking people from buying meat in stores? Why don’t they block people from eating this kind of food?

This is a sick worldin every sense of the word.

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.

    Oh fuck! This is what I love, so much love. WOW. This is showing the world in a rough, merciless, and brilliant way, what I’ve called the pathology of normalcy. This is the Angela I mentioned the other day on my Facebook page. Your namesake was in the center of that posting of mine. And she asked me to give you her best. Oh, and this is what I wrote about the two of you:

    “Note: There are two Angela’s in my world. One is a scientist who’s upsetting the mainstream scientific/medical establishment and pharmaceutical industry with her brilliant findings regarding food, drugs, and especially her way of successfully curing and preventing migraine. The other is a Harvard educated physician, for years now relentlessly fighting racism, injustice, and medical malpractice. The latter one is visible in the picture below.
    In my view, both of these ladies are examples of authenticity, honesty, and integrity, and driven to walk their talk.”
