One thing that makes me nuts is when a whole room full of people get together and manage to come up with a bad idea.
Case in point: have you ever thought about why or how the nation's food and its drugs are administered by the same government department? I mean, how did they even get lumped together? Food. Drugs. They don't go together. And yet we're so accustomed to the idea, that it just rolls off of our tongues ... "the Food and Drug Administration". See? ... Bad idea.
As hard as it is to believe, there are still some who do not know that the food manufacturers, the food police (FDA), and the pharmaceutical companies are working together. Or worse, that 'certain' food crops receive staggering government subsidies to keep them affordable for the unsuspecting and disadvantaged (how else can they afford to put corn, soy and wheat in just about everything?). For them, several films (including new ones slated for 2011 release), will break it down, link the growing incidence of chronic illness to the evils in our food system, plus offer grassroots, corporate and government solutions.
The bottom line: both Food and Drugs are big business, and profit is more important than people to too many. It's the truth and everyone knows it. It's time to cut the cord and wean our food system off the drugs. In order to positively impact what's offered in the marketplace, I'm starting with a commitment to be selective about what ends up on my fork.
How will YOU demand the right to eat real food?
