Panaceia or Hygeia

immunize yourself against the pandemic of lifestyle diseases

Food Addiction

Posted by Colin Rose on August 20, 2008

We were delighted to be notified of an upcoming symposium on food addiction. It has finally dawned on the obesity establishment that the pandemic of obesity is caused by the pandemic of food addiction. We have been criticized for even making the suggestion, illustrated in our photo essay on food addiction. Now they must start asking themselves why there is a pandemic of food addiction that began in the early 1980s, coincident with the beginning of the promotion of the cholesterol myth. The most likely explanation is the moral hazard effect of drugs for “treating” the symptoms of self-destructive lifestyles. The population has been indoctrinated in the belief that as long as one takes one’s pills for blood cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, one is free eat anything in any quantity. In this regard, we would hope that the sponsor of the symposium, Merck-Frosst, a peddler of pills for those very symptoms, realizes its culpability in contributing to the problem.
