If you (or someone you care about) needs a little more convincing on the importance cutting junk food out completely, look no further than today’s guest, Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Seriously, he is passionate (to say the least!) about educating the masses on the immense damage just a little greasy food can cause. After this episode, you may never look at french fries or baked goods the same way again!
In his newest book, Fast Food Genocide, he outlines exactly how processed foods can affect your health — we’re talking several kinds of cancers, autism, heart attacks and depression. He also mentions how many calories enter your bloodstream in a minute after eating fast foods versus healthy foods. Plus, he dives into the biology of food addiction and his tips for eating healthy while on the road. (Get ready guys, this episode gets real about processed foods!)
