Augusta, GA - You've heard the phrase "you are what you eat", but...have you given it much thought?

A man on a mission to promote healthy living is taking to the streets of Augusta.

We know soda and sweets are bad for us, but do they cause addiction or criminal behavior?

Craig Gordon says he watched bad food and booze ruin the lives of people he loved, and that's why he wants the country to know -- eating the wrong foods isn't just bad for your waist line.

He says he's spent over a decade researching the link between poor diet and addiction and he now wants community leaders to get on board.

"We need our teachers badly to get on board on this and start representing healthy food and exercise, and really taking out the magnifying glass and looking at labels and looking at long term outcomes, not just what's expedient and what's cheap now," Gordon says.

Gordon's nonprofit is called NEAD, which stands for Nutrition and Education versus Addiction and Disease. You can visit his website at
