"We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun." -
George Orwell. - How right he was!
George Orwell also , in his prescient book, 1984, introduced us to Doublethink: "The power to hold two completely contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accept both of them." - I've got news for you: - you almost certainly exhibit this power yourself. - Here's how:-
You KNOW that you know personally people who are not fat - people who are slim, in fact - who definitely eat far more than their body can require, and who take very little exercise and who do not have a particularly high temperature. - And so you KNOW that over-eating and inactivity do not cause obesity - because they do not cause obesity in those people.
And yet simultaneously you nonetheless believe that fat people are fat because they eat too much...
This is Doublethink. - Give it up!
So much tinned food is high in salt/sodium - and it is salt/sodium that makes fat/obese people fatter/more obese, and, more and more, obesity will bring about great suffering and early death to millions upon millions of people.
Don't fall for the lies being promulgated about obesity being caused by greed and laziness; it is caused by fluid retention, caused in turn by salt sensitivity. - Read the facts, not the propaganda...
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, angina, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
