Junk Food Fails the Test

A New York Film Director provided shockwaves at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.The film crew for his movie, “Super Size Me: A Film of Epic Portions,” followed Director Morgan Spurlock as he ate only McDonald’s fast food for a month, recording his ballooning weight, leaping cholesterol and malfunctioning liver. Not to be outdone, Justin, a thirteen year-old from New Zealand, ate only sugar and junk food for two days,then put himself through a series of reading, typing and mathematics tests. He then switched to chicken, rice, bread and vegetables for two days, and went through the same series of tests. The results? He read 43 percent slower, typed at nearly half his usual speed and solved math problems up to 35 percent slower when on the junk food diet. His family also noticed negative behavior changes while on junk food. Watkins herbs and spices can help to bring the family back to “home plate,” making mealtime fun for everyone, including the cook! Think of mealtime as “food for thought” for your entire family!
