During an interview with The Globe and Mail, Trish Stratus spoke out the warning labels on junk food.
In regards to what actually qualifies as junk food, she states, “The further a food gets away from its original form, the more processed it is, the more “junky.”
Since orange juice is full of sugar, would it qualify as junk food?
“Orange juice is okay, a natural sugar that your body can process. The crap in soda – your body says, “Hmm, not sure what this is, I’ll just store that for now,” she states.
Trish believes it would be a “great idea” if government officials legislated warning labels on junk food similar to those found on cigarette packages.
“I’m constantly surprised how unaware people are about what they’re putting into their bodies. People just don’t know!” said Stratus. “I think if people realized how detrimental some of this junk food is to their health, they really would think twice. And maybe it wouldn’t stop them from eating it, but it certainly might cause one to see the benefits of practising moderation.”
