There 2 large industries, ask led by large corporations (few exceptions), in various forms affect our health. Because of its economic strength and media power, these industries cause many diseases and pathologies, either direct and obvious or subtle way, unnoticed.

Both are presented with careful makeup camouflaged, pretending friendly forms and related health: One is the Food Industry, and another Pharmaceutical Industry.

The largest companies in the world ( 1%), migrated to food and including controlling 40% of total world consumption.

In our daily life, undeniable progress in both, and just simply look in our cupboards, and find a huge amount of industrial products, and remedies in our kits we intuit as healthy and beneficial for the fact of being "counter".

We see many cases where the food industry, mainly driven by large corporations, is nourished capital of various kinds, but in countries like USA, make use of funds from the tobacco industry, which caused, and even causes, large number of deaths worldwide. The lack of criteria based on healthy living, and in many cases, unethical, are common denominators associated with these capital.

It is easy to see in advertisements, that emphasize positive aspects of the products, with film production and digital technologies, that capture the attention of our children and adults; creating unrealistic expectations, or stating values ​​that have nothing to do with the product offered, and sometimes even distorting truth or hiding negative aspect. Such as guaranteeing that children grow best if they eat desserts or certain supplements and not instilling healthy eating; or linked a “good family” consumption of certain beverages, as if there is any relation, just to name a few cases.

Processed foods, unlike natural, are those that have been processed in various ways, to develop products that remain in good condition, even after a while of being produced.

The “modern industrialized food style”, generated in many individuals, the basis of a systemic disorder that negatively alters our metabolic function and the whole body in general. Industrial processing substantially affect food, depriving them of essential nutrients and adding undesirable substances, dietary fiber being one of the main victims in industrial processes.

In 1900 causes of death in the U.S. were in order of importance: Tuberculosis, Pneumonia, diarrheal diseases, heart, liver, cancer, bronchitis, and diphtheria. 100 years later, with the introduction of processed foods with sugars, sweeteners, sales, preservatives, antibiotics, dyes and a range of chemicals; in some cases addictive; joined fast food proliferation, altered by other factors the order of importance of the causes of death. Today the order is: Heart Disease, cancer, lung diseases, accidents, diabetes, suicides, renal and hepatic. These diseases have, in many cases, a common denominator: poor diet and sedentary.

Same with the pharmaceutical industry, which increasingly experiences with new drugs in an effort to “improve our body”. We can not be hypocrites, nor deny that many drugs have helped in a huge way to health, and longevity. But the lack of controls, excessive consumption and sale (in many cases their respective prescription medications), mass access to “counter medications” Self-medication causing alarming, and incentives to physicians by laboratories increasingly prescribing remedies, are some of the things that are overshadowing developments in this industry, and take us to the edge of the famous phrase: “The Cure Worse than the Disease”.

After 18 years having received more than 15.000 guests from around the country and abroad, we can say that what we present above is unfortunately true.
