Watch What Happens Inside Your Body: Processed vs. Whole Foods


aamadWe all know we should avoid processed foods. They often provide little or no nutrition and they can pack on the pounds. A video of what happens as the body attempts to digest processed foods illustrates that our digestive systems do not properly break them down.

The experiment looks at two people eating two similar meals: one contained processed foods (Gatorade, Top Ramen, and Gummi Bears) and the other of homemade versions (hibiscus drink, homemade broth with noodles and gummi bears made of juice).

Strefani Bardin’s TEDxManhattan 2011 video gives us an inside look (literally) at how the body reacts to the different foods with a M2A camera.

The way the body processed and reacted to the foods are drastically different. Bardin pointed out that Top Ramen is mean to survive Armageddon and homemade noodles are “meant to be eaten.”

The experiment is a fascinating glimpse in to the human body and provides us with more proof that processed foods are not healthy!
