factory food…

so i have checked out a few documentaries on food recently… let’s just say, i have gained a new respect for vegan diets… we all know that the food industry has been exposed on many different levels… people finally are learning about how our food gets to us… there have been some changes to the food industry because of our new knowledge… problems still remain…

i understand that animals need to be killed in order to eat the meat they provide… i believe and know there are humane ways to go about this… the problem is that humanity is ignored in these factory farms… these factory farms not only raise the animals they are killing, but they give them life… there is nothing natural about these operations… we are powerful and smart creatures… we have shown that we can dominate the planet (and slowly destroy it)… can we not find a way to radically change the way we distribute food in the US? not many other countries operate in this fashion…

we need to continue to make people (and especially our youth) aware of the way food makes it into our bellies… it is not as simple as it seems… in the food industry, knowledge is power… with the interrogation of High Fructose Corn Syrup, there have been radical changes to this part of the industry… “throwback” real sugar soda, real ketchup, and packaging notices have all come about… people do have a bit of power in what they eat… the business men that run the food industry (not farmers) need to make their cash, so if we change how and what we eat so they will change too… they love money…

i posted a video below that affected me… it really makes you think twice about what you eat, buy, and support… i found myself at the grocery store the other day not knowing what to do… feeling a bit sick to my stomach… then realizing that everything that would be “ok” to get is mega pricey… we have to demand a change in this industry…

food is not a business… food is a way to perpetuate life… shame on the people who exploit it.

peace and noLove…
