I think big food propaganda is to blame for our food addiction. Agree or disagree?
“Because of rising obesity rates among young people, more and more baby boomers may outlive their children.” ~ FROM THE WEBMD ARCHIVES April 9, 2010
Our parents may outlive us? Say WHAT???
This is a photo of produce grown in our family garden. I thought it clever to send Monsanto a little message since they are a large part of this epic problem!
As we embark on a 4 day adventure to spend time with Harvard economists, Harvard researchers, scientists and visionaries, on a mission to take back human health, one bite at a time…the possibility that I may outlive my kids, drives me to change what I buy, what we eat and how we live.
You may want to do the same!
Stop counting calories…carbs…fats…
Stop thinking zero, non-fat, sugar free is GOOD for you!
Start counting NUTRIENTS. After all, food IS fuel.
As parents we do everything we can to love, nurture and cherish our children; not outlive them.
Statistics my children face:
40% of Americans born from 2000 to 2011 will develop diabetes, double the risk of those born a decade earlier.
Cancer will affect 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the United States, and the number of new cases of cancer is set to nearly double by the year 2050.
The percentage of children with an ADHD diagnosis continues to increase, from 7.8% in 2003 to 9.5% in 2007 and to 11.0% in 2011
2014 – One in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a 30% increase from 1 in 88 two years ago, according to a new report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Need I continue????
I’ve watched Fed Up, Food Inc, Food Matters, GMO OMG…
I’ve read Food Politics, Salt Sugar Fat, Fast Food Nation…
I’ve watched my husband and son both suffer with chronic illness…
We’ve all watched someone we love STRUGGLE with chronic illness…
THIS IS THE REALITY:
“We are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.” ~ Wendell Berry
Attention people…Parents, teachers, Drs, lawyers, rich, poor, single, married, young, old, black, white or polka dot…
BIG FOOD corporations aren’t going to change a damn thing because big food it big money and these nasty fake food ingredients are cheap to mass produce.
Cheap Fake Food = Big Fat People & PROFITS
WHAT ARE we GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Step 1: SAY NO…
no to fake food…
no to false advertising…
no to large corporations…
no to Oreos… (you can do it)
no to Coca Cola…(poison water)
If the food we buy and feed our children is killing them…let’s stop buying it. SIMPLE as that.
Grow a garden, buy local produce, eat more live foods, take probiotics. This should be the 1 thing you add to your daily lifestyle…PROBIOTICS.
We do not get enough live flora and adding a probiotic can change how we feel, what we think and how we react to positive and negative events in our lives. Crazy, but scientifically proven to be true. These little bacteria make a big difference.
We need a slap in the face to wake us from this fake food induced coma. We absolutely CAN prevent our children from dieing before us…it starts with us…
STOP BUYING FAKE FOOD. Big food won’t like it but your body will.
