You get the difference between a Ford and a BMW. The BMW is a better car. Because all components are made of superior materials, and lengthy thought and testing has gone into the design of the mechanics, it will last long and the driving experience is exceptional.
When it comes to food we have the same choices, between the Fords and the BMWs of foods so to speak, but.......with food the choices you make matter a whole lot more than which car you drive. And I am not talking about caviar versus pasta. I am talking about how a food is grown or made, what goes into it, how natural it is - you get it, its inherent quality. Food goes inside your body, it literally becomes you. It gives you the energy to live, promotes building and healing the cells in your body, contributes to a good immune system, feeds the brain so you can "think on your feet," and insures your overall good health. My mother believes that she would have been taller if she didn't get inferior food during the first six crucial years of her life, the six years of WWII.
Inferior foods, whether out of a carton and enhanced with chemicals, grown with pesticides, premade and over sugared, fed antibiotics and growth hormones, or kept and slaughtered under horrific conditions, cannot give you BMW quality health. The consequences can be many fold. Eating inferior foods can cause you to be more susceptible to illness in general because your body doesn't get adequate nutrition, you may tire more easily, have a troubled digestive tract, duller skin, less zest for life, think more fuzzily, become afflicted by chronic conditions, and even die younger.
Of all the Western industrialized countries this one spends the least amount of money on food in proportion to average income - for the sake of your health, increase your food budget. You don't need a BMW to get around, but you need superior food to live a long, healthy, and beautiful life.
