"Garbage in, garbage out"
Without understanding what we eat, or simply by 'guessing', we don't know what we don't know. More than half of all adults underestimate their calorie intake, and almost all adults have serious nutritional deficiencies. During our 20s, 30s and 40s, they may not show, but later manifest themselves as severe conditions. Cancer, dementia, depression; to name but a few conditions which can be partially avoided through perfect nutrition.
