Infographic: It's Summertime!

When I saw this infographic, entitled "Its Summertime", I had to laugh out loud, even if the message is no laughing matter.

The infographic illustrates an abundant amount of America's favorite food:  cheeseburgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, sausages, fried chicken, pizza, chicken wings and nuggets, salami and cold cuts, nachos, french fries, onion rings, cookies, cakes, chips, pies, doughnuts, ice cream, brownies and soda - in other words, fast, junk, convenience, processed and fried food high in saturated fat, sugar and other refined carbohydrates, cholesterol, preservatives, additives, chemicals and calories.  Also, according to the infographic:
  • Summertime means food festivals, amusement parts, baseball games and eating contests
  • Americans love to celebrate the warm weather by getting together and enjoying food with friends
  • When the enjoyment of summer leads to eating just one too many favorite foods, you may experience stomach troubles
The infographic source is Pepto-Bismol - the pink liquid that is designed to relieve diarrhea, heartburn, nausea, indigestion and other stomach problems caused by overindulgence in the type of food and drink that is illustrated.  I guess you can't blame them for promoting all of the greasy, sugary, salty, highly-acidic food that causes or contributes to digestive problems - they need for you to eat this kind of food so they can profit from your misery!  Unfortunately, their products don't cure coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, joint pain or obesity.

Always consider the source of the information being given and the true intention behind the marketing!  Your health depends on it!
