Tom Brady has been the subject of controversy lately, but it's pretty easy to agree with the quarterback's stance on junk food.
Brady discussed the role that healthy eating plays in his performance on the field during a recent radio appearance. He said a veggie-heavy acid-alkaline diet helps him reduce inflammation and ward off injury.
I think we’ve been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years
He then went on to say that he's tried to convince other players to adopt his clean eating philosophy, but they, like most Americans, are "brainwashed to believe" that junk food is acceptable fuel.
“I think we’ve been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years, by a lot of beverage companies over the years. But we still do it. That’s just America. We believe that Frosted Flakes is a food... You just keep eating those things, and you keep wondering why we have just incredible rates of disease in our country. No one thinks it has anything to do with what we put in our body."
And Frosted Flakes aren't the only brand Brady shamed over the course of the interview. He also likened Coca-Cola to "poison for kids," and described soda advertisements as "quackery."
The Patriots star clearly has some strong opinions on the topic, and we don't blame him.
