Deficiencies in the Standard American Diet

Share This Post

The American diet is highly deficient due to poor food choices and the way in which our food is processed. The quality of nutrients in the soil where our food is grown is depleted. This leads to a poor quality outcomes in the food we eat. We call the Standard American Diet “SAD” for a reason. Most food in America today will support life, but it will not sustain health. Ninety-one percent of Americans do not eat the suggested two servings of fruits and three servings of vegetables in accordance with the NHANES-II in 1990. Now, thirty years later, this reality persists. As far back as 1988 the Surgeon General’s Report said approximately two-thirds of all deaths are associated with imbalances in diet and nutrition. Even when we discuss the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) which, in all honesty, should be referred to as the “Really Dumb Allowance” of the amount of nutrients a person should consume. It assumes all patients are created genetically the same.Wouldn’t it be ideal to know what you genetically need nutrient-wise before supplementing? DNA testing does just that, it determines from hundreds of DNA SNIPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms), those that have the biggest impact in determining your overall health, what you are genetically pre-determined to be deficient in. The choice for longevity is here!
