The Less Processed Your Food The Better Your Chances Of Living

June 30, 2013

Some of the most dangerous chemicals produced by modern man are not made for what you think. Sadly, a lot of these chemicals in the above slide show are made to preserve the food we eat. These substances contain names with many syllables, have complex chemistry behind them, and lack any nutritional value at all. So why is this stuff in everything you purchase from the grocery store? Well, you can thank major multinationals that have nothing in mind other than profit for these alterations to your food. “The way we eat has changed more in the last fifty years than in the last ten-thousand years.” Michael Pollan

The advent of the supermarket that contains on average 47,000 products has totally altered the food that enters our mouth, and the process by which we gather it. Large surpluses of food produced by fossil fuel farming and industrial meat production would result in mass spoilage if we didn’t preserve these foods. It sounds like a problem that needed to be solved, or else. Spoilage meant losses, losses meat no money, no money meant bankruptcy, etc. The real issue here is that we are focused on growing the wrong foods. Foods that aren’t meant to be eaten fresh or at least minimally processed don’t last long on store shelves without refrigeration and/or chemical additives. The outcome isn’t good for your health as you are now exposed to toxins in somewhere around eighty percent of the products available at the chain store you probably shop at. These “foods” or their additives have been banned in various places around the globe. http://shine.yahoo.com/shine-food/80-pre-packaged-foods-america-banned-other-countries-135100604.html In summary, our FDA is corrupt, not looking out for you or I, and shouldn’t be taken seriously. Grow your own food if possible, if not, try to at least eliminate the largest contributors of these chemicals from your diet…..read the labels!
