EP 224 Dr. Elaina George: Are We Addicted To Fast Food?

The United States of Fast Food might be an apt description of our culture.  And it’s now verifiable. The Centers for Disease Control study reveals a startling statistic: 40% of Americans eat fast food every day.  Really? Come to think about it, if we add processed foods and quickie meals made at home, it might be an even higher number. Another surprise in the study is that folks with money might rely upon it more than folks with fewer means.  Well, fast food is on the menu in this episode with Dr. Elaina George, author of ‘Big Medicine: The Cost of Corporate Control and How Doctors and Patients Working Together Can Rebuild a Better System’. That’s a mouthful and so is the amount of McDonald’s we’re consuming.
