America is one of the most unhealthy countries on the planet. We spend more per capita on healthcare than any other nation, yet we’re still one of the sickest. What gives? Three words…Standard American Diet (aka SAD diet). Our nations way of eating and living is making us sicker and sicker, but how did we get to this place? On this episode we explore the various causes that helped create our current dietary pattern. We chat about factory farming or CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations), agricultural changes, convenience and processed foods, politics, and racism and their impacts on the Western way of eating.
