Food Scoring Guide: Low-Nutrient Foods

Just as eating large amounts of micronutrient-rich natural plant foods is of great benefit to your health, eating large amounts of micronutrient-deficient animal foods and processed foods leaves you very susceptible to disease. That is why the standard American diet (SAD) results in diseases Americans get.

Neither animal products nor processed foods contain antioxidants, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, folate, vitamin C, or those thousand of phytochemicals that are essential for cellular normalcy. Many of the animal products consumed, such as cheese and red meat, are exceptionally high in saturated fat. High saturated fat intake increases the risk of certain cancers and promotes high cholesterol, leading to heart disease. To add insult to injury, many of the processed foods we eat are high in trans fat, a man-made fat that is linked to cancer and heart disease.
