Here is a little something, its called orthorexia nervosa and it is an unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food. This article and its links are barely dabbling but its a taste. I guess its a nice clinical term since 'healthfood junkie" just doesnt sound right. I have complained about this for years now we shall see what studies get done and what they produce. The best diet is a balanced diet everyone knows that and if you need supplements then you are not eating the right things to get the right things. Food has the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs so additional vitamins and nutrients should be for those that are not eating right...makes sense to me. There is a book out there by the man who coined this term Dr. Steven Bratman. I am not saying that healthy living is bad I am only saying people who eat everything are not as easily offended, thats all. I grew up on a farm I ate organic all of my youth but organic was not lacking in animal protien, I understand the need to eat good foods. Like I said only the future has the answers. Dont shoot the messenger.
