John Mackey was quoted (in a poorly written People magazine article by Eric Todisco)as saying, “The best solution is not to need healthcare,”… and he is absolutely right.
Clean eating and movement are two of the main ways you can take control of your health right now… today.
The backlash on social media was incredible and incredibly stupid. The things people said were unbelievable. If people really believe the things they blurb out on social media, the outlook for the future is more dismal than I had originally thought. This also explains why so many people are against natural holistic wellness. They have been very effectively brain washed.
John Mackey did not say what he said to get people to buy more kale, he said what he said because after decades of working closely with, and consuming, nutritious foods he has seen first hand the benefits of eating a clean diet. It confuses me as to why some people are having such a violent emotion reaction to what he said. I do not understand the hate toward healthy eating. Also, Eric Todisco’s article is so poorly written it reads as if he is blaming healthy eating for certain diseases.
“heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease — are all related to healthy eating.”Quote from People magazine article on John Mackey Jan. 5, 2021
“The best solution is to change the way people eat, the way they live, the lifestyle, and diet.” he added. “There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be healthy and have a longer health span. A bunch of drugs is not going to solve the problem.” -John Mackey. These are just some of the words for which Mr. Mackey is being vilified. 1. He is criticized simply for being wealthy (DO BETTER AMERICA) 2. People are (I hope. At least they sound as if they are) being deliberately ignorant and pedantic about what he said. Pedantic about things he never said. I think that is what I find most annoying.
We are so disconnected about nutrition and the roll it plays in being healthy that THIS is considered to be what a healthy woman looks like…
It is not.
What strange times we live in when obese people are labeled as healthy and clean eating is the enemy.
Clean eating and moving your body can do wonders for your health. don’t give up. Don’t give in to the hype that processed foods are just as healthy or that good nutrition cannot improve your health. I am so disappointed in the reactions to this article.
