Decades ago life was made easier by simplifying the cooking and preparing of meals with new gadgets
and the use of preservatives and chemicals in food to make them more convenient for us to buy and consume.
Think of all of the places we shop and spend our money, and you will see convenience items ready
for us to purchase:
-The gas station
Now along with that convenience is the consumption of chemicals and preservatives that enable
that product to be convenient. There are hormones to quicken the harvest of animals to get them to market, aspartame to replace sugar, and make it “sugar-free”.
There are chemicals to protect our food from parasites. The soil our food grows in has no nutrients.
Food is altered on the molecular level to be preserved, packaged and positioned at the point-of-sale.
We have been shoveling these products into ourselves for most of our lives.
In the last 50 years we have seen a rise in diabetes, heart disease, food allergies, obesity,
cancers, ADD/ADHD, depression and a decline in our general health, causing our health care cost to sky-rocket.
At the same time pharmaceutical companies are producing new drugs weekly to combat all of these diseases and ailments.
Would eating right slow down this decline? Would our health get better if we junked the junk food?
I want to hear your thoughts on this.
Do we go back to eating a healthier diet, and stop eating all the garbage that is made available to us.
Is Big Pharma in cahoots with the food companies? Is there a conspiracy brewing that we need to address?
I know there is a common thread between all of these, and I want to hear from everyone.
Thanks and happy and healthy eating.
