People in the past ate healthier food than people today.
Agree or disagree?

Some argue that people today eat healthier food than people in the past, because people today are more conscious about healthy diets. However, I am strongly convinced that people in the past ate healthier food than people today, because our ancestors (1) ate natural food without chemicals, (2) ate less fat , and (3) consumed less sugar.

Firstly, people generations ago consumed only natural ingredients without contaminated by those chemicals such as artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides. In addition, they did not have any transgenic plants that might have negative impacts on our health. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, it is estimated that one out of ten cancer cases is attributable to those chemicals contained in food we eat.

Second of all, our ancestors ate less fat, because beef, pork and chicken were too expensive to purchase. As a result, they mainly ate fat-free diets such as vegetables and fruits, which significantly reduced the chances of being overweight. According to a statistics, the average weight of adult males 100 years ago were 30 pounds less than that of people today. In fact, the other day, my father showed me a photograph of our ancestors approximately one century ago, and they all look very skinny people.

Last but not least, people centuries ago consumed less sugar. Our ancestors didn’t drink any of the sodas or coffees that we drink today, so sugar intake wasn’t a problem. In contrast, sugar has made its way into almost everything we eat these days and it’s pretty hard to avoid. For example, my brother loves drinking soda, typically he drinks 2 gallons of regular coke every day, weighs over 300 pounds and he is diabetic.


Some argue that people today eat healthier food than people in the past, because the average life expectancy is much longer today. However, this is not true, because the longer life expectancy is probably due to advanced medical treatment. People hundreds years ago only ate natural materials without those chemicals, ate less fat, and consumed less sugar, and for these reasons, I am firmly convinced that our ancestors ate healthier food than we do today.
