The Joy of Health
Don’t abandon the concept of eating well. While challenges exist—foods are mass generated, heavily processed, and lacking essential nutrients—a balanced diet is still the best way to sustain healthy weight, increase energy, and maintain overall optimal health. Technological advances have enabled us to generate a greater agricultural yield for a growing population and increasing demands, but even “fresh” foods have lost their natural glow. Supplements can’t replace a balanced diet. But when a diet is insufficient, they will make up for lost nutrients and are a factor in maintaining good health and preventing disease.
