Processed food is inferior food. The nation's health bill would consequently drop to almost zero if we went back to live food and freshly cooked food, the food processors would go out of business, and chemicals would stop poisoning the environment and our health. At the footnote that ends this sentence, are presented sources of information to find out more. There are avenues to pursue today to begin making a , with zero environmental impact.

Hitler and Nazi Germany was a strange combination of the enlightened and the insane, but when it came to improving the health of the chosen race, German researchers were far ahead of their Western rivals.
