Do you have any idea what you ate today? Really??!
Warning: the TED Talk Video link I share here may open your eyes and blow your mind:
My opinions about the sorry state of America’s food are well known to all my family and friends. Messed Up American Food is Nancy’s Rant #1A, according to my husband. Well, watch out hubby – Hell, watch out world! This TED Talk really got my Rant bit flipped on high!
Over the past 2 decades, I have done a ton of research on food – I did it in self-defense because both of my kids reacted to “normal” American foods like bread and milk from an early age. I had to learn about reading labels and what all those strange ingredients really are just to keep my kids sane and healthy.
But the new information in this short video about what is being added to our food and our crops in America has me so stirred up, so incensed – so MAD! I may have to open the windows and scream, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”
I am so mad, I may have to catch the next plane to Washington and show this video to ANYONE and EVERYONE in Congress who I can tie down for 15 minutes. Because I am CONVINCED – the SHIT that is being added to our food is hurting us and will eventually kill us. This additive, preservative and genetically modified madness needs to stop NOW!
It is time to draw the line. I am sick and tired of paying a small fortune to buy organic products just so I can get some food without chemical additives and genetic modifications! The short-sighted stupidity of decision makers in the American food industry absolutely STUNS me. How can this stuff end up in our food and NO ONE in the industry thinks twice about it?? And they don’t feel the need to test these additive and GMO’s??? The last 15+ years has been one big test on the American population – the only problem is, I DO NOT RECALL GIVING ANYONE PERMISSION TO TEST THIS ADDITIVE CRAP ON MY KIDS!!
I am reminded of reading how the elite class in Roman Empire poisoned themselves by wearing lead-based face powder in order to look paler. And now in America, we poison our own kids’ food just to make a bit more profit for Kraft and Coca Cola and Monsanto. WOW!
Please watch the video. Please – you owe it to yourself and your family.
And let me know if you decide to join my rant-fest.
As you watch the video, try to keep in mind that we lowly American consumers are NOT powerless herd animals. We still control which foods we buy and which we avoid, don’t we? And with the power of our pocketbooks, we can change the entire food industry, one purchase at a time.
