When did we stop caring about nutrition?
And, even more importantly, why did we stop caring about nutrition?
Pew Research Center did a study on American diet habits, and while it’s no secret that many of us realize that this country is by no means the healthiest in the world, it’s also apparent that many people also don’t realize just how bad it is getting. This study by Pew found that:
- Daily calorie intake is up 23% over the last 40 years
- Almost half of our calorie intake comes from either flour and grains or fats and oils groups
- 58% of people surveyed said that they should probably be eating healthier than they currently are
And despite the fact that people are eating more and more in this country, they’re not choosing the foods that actually give the body what it needs: vitamins and minerals. That’s blatantly apparent by the rise in daily calories from our over-processed flour and grains as well as the (usually unhealthy) fats and oils that Americans consume on a daily basis.
Another study was published by Oregon State University that specifically focused on micronutrient inadequacies within the U.S. population. This study found:
- Overall, a high prevalence of inadequacies for multiple micronutrients
- 94.3% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for vitamin D
- 88.5% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for vitamin E
- 52.2% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for magnesium
- 44.1% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for calcium
- 43.0% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for vitamin A
- 38.9% of the US population does not meet the daily requirement for vitamin C
What these numbers tell us is that we, as a country, continue to eat more and more, but we’re not eating the right foods. The over-processed fast food and even just food products in general are not giving our bodies what they need.
