Knowing the truth is also a mental disorder and there's a pill for that too; cyanide.

I haven't read all the posts yet so forgive me if this was covered earlier...

The poster about 4-h kids being sponsored by Monsatan et al. is quite ironic. I am a 4-h leader, and yes, many of the upper level grants available to the older kids are sponsored by these companies (also by mining corporations here in Canada) however the irony comes with the fact the majority of the kids are homeschooled by parents that insist on organic, gmo free foods. The kids grow to understand the importance of agriculture but are not stupid about its controlling elements at the top, in fact some even have given speaches and presentations to this effect, with emphasis on the importance of small farms in securing a food healthy future, both for bio-security and health related.

I don't like that the organization takes donations from this type of corporation, but the kids are not naïve
Sometimes it is their only leg up into an agriculture career at university. Once they get there they can study what they want.

I'm the oddball in our group, in not always feeding organic, gmo free because I feel our kidneys and liver are doing their jobs and that stress/worry can be just as damaging. It's not the highest thought but it is practical and economical.

Sorry to go off topic a wee bit.

Monsanto is a corporate ISIS - heavily bankrolled and in the business of death and control.

It is more likely that these "officials" have the mental disorder - not average Joe who disses McDonalds over home grown stuff.

If anything should be declared a mental disorder it should be the brainwashed masses doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result..........like voting.

I was going abstain from voting like I do every four years, but I got a funny feeling that there won't even be an election.

I know (or should I say knew, we no longer speak) a couple of people this would actually fit in terms of describing. And they ain't normal about their desire for healthy foods, they're obsessed with it. All day, every day, in search of "healthy" or "organic" products (mostly organic) Just over-the-top obsession, nothing else in life matters to them -- regularly missing appointments or playing hooky at work for a farmer's market is just a bit beyond making an exception. I honestly don't know how the hell their households even function minimally, let alone how their husbands are still with them, I'd have bolted by now myself with that kind of ramped up one-track thinking.

Eat what we tell you to eat! So is this going to be our next "war?"

First they came for the anti-vaxxers. Now they come for the healthy eaters. Be the herd. Be the herd....

So, people are getting more and more aware of what they are eating. Big Food and Monsanto don't like it, so what would the logical thing be for them to do? Why, they shall mindwash us! Teach our kids that the atrocities they are perpetrating on our food chain is A-okay.



And find a few stories about people with issues to start labeling people who want to eat well as, well, nuts. Of course. And soon the interwebz will use this to make themselves feel better somehow...to excuse their non-concern.



In an attempt to curb the mass rush for food change and reform, psychiatry has green lighted a public relations push to spread awareness about their new buzzword “orthorexia nervosa,” defined as “a pathological obsession for biologically pure and healthy nutrition.” In other words, experts are moving toward saying that our demand for nutrient-dense, healthful food is a mental disorder that must be treated.

CNN, Fast Company, Popular Science, and other top outlets have all began to trumpet the talking points on cue relatively recently:


“Orthorexia nervosa is a label designated to those who are concerned about eating healthy. Characterized by disordered eating fueled by a desire for “clean” or “healthy” foods, those diagnosed with the condition are overly pre-occupied with the nutritional makeup of what they eat”.


In short, if you turn your back on low quality, corporate food containing known cancer causing toxic additives and a rich history of dishonesty rooted in a continuous “profits over people” modus operandi, then you may suffer from a mental illness. The cherry on top is that if you have the pseudo-science labeled disorder of orthorexia nervosa, you will be prescribed known toxic, pharmaceutical drugs from some of the same conglomerate corporations that you are trying to avoid by eating healthy in the first place.

I told everyone on my Facebook, they better take their kids out to McDonald's tonight. No more healthy eating for you! LOL First it was Don't Eat Junk Food, You'll Get Fat! Now it's Stop Eating Too Many Veggies! You're TOO Healthy! So did McDonald's lobby for this one? We know Michelle Obama didn't have a hand in it. Does this mean Little Debbie snack cakes will be returning to kids lunches? LOL No more salads with wilted greens and bugs?

Yep. Eggs and fat are good for us again! I guess it all depends on who's advertising and lobbying budget is biggest this year.

Just trust your body and your gut.

We all know the processed stuff is poison, that Monsanto is killing us, that fast food isn't good for us or real food, not matter how they market or disguise it with (other) fake flavors, and that we should eat real and balanced and in moderation.

There is no excuse not to know. Whatever choice you make from there...well that's up to you.



I'm one of those that believe as long as you eat in moderation, you should be able to have a little bit of everything. Just don't go psycho with it. A little bit of sweets, a little bit of salad, even a touch of junk food, just don't go overboard. Think of food as being at a buffet. It's ok to sample things, just don't pile your plate.

I have to say that some people are taking the whole healthy eating to a whole new level.



I believe they are talking about the obsessive types that think eating one cheeseburger will kill you.



There is a difference in choosing to eat healthy and completely letting it take over every thought every minute of the day.



From reading the posts in this thread I can see that this will not be a popular opinion, but it is just like everything else. There are drug addicts, porn addicts, food addicts, just about everything else addicts, why would an obsession of eating healthy be any different?



Come to Texas. I believe eating one cheeseburger here probably CAN kill you. We just opened up a restaurant called HEART ATTACK GRILL. (Says it all, doesn't it?)



I saw that featured on the Food Network. They have something similar in Las Vega too. The one in Texas, do they wheel you out in a wheelchair as well? I know the one in Vegas is over the top with Nurses uniforms for the waitresses and everything. You sit in wheelchairs, the whole nine.

I eat very limited portions of foods containing GMO ingredients as a means to adapt just in case mainstream food is all that is available for whatever reason. That's how powerful our minds are, we can adapt to anything. It's the abrupt changes and the bad intentions that are a problem.

On a first read of select articles this seems rather astonishing and broad but on closer inspection this label seems to be reserved for those who eat ZERO fat, believing that fat is universally bad where in fact unsaturated fats/fatty acids are very healthy for a human diet.

People who eat only foods that contain little to zero are just as at risk to damage to their body as somone eating any other range of foods missing other elements such as vitamins, just as simply eating not enough of -anything- is bad. Simply undernourishment.

Dont everyone run off into the hill hiding from doctors prescribing a big mac once a day!!!!

There are healthy fats that you won't find in a big Mac.

Low Fat is a red flag. It's not about avoiding fats, it's avoiding artificial processed junk food

The greatest threat to humanity in terms of mental disorders is sociopathy. I don't need some boffin in a lab coat to tell me anything. .... a round of a nice microbrew for you my sisters and brothers and in honor of this Monsanto sponsored bullsh$t I'm gonna make them ORGANIC, how about a PEAK IPA (Portland, Maine) or a WOLAVERS oatmeal stout (Middlebury, Vermont).... cause we don't want any GMO FRANKENFOOD!

They're probably worse than ISIS because they're everywhere, across the planet, in our food and water, and killing us all, whether slowly or quickly.



Frankly, I'd call this having-no-common-sense disorder.

They don't like it because, their is enough evidence, on the balance of probability, to do group lawsuits, for premature death and disability . This would be their ultimate nightmare, their only defence is ramp up the feeding meter, put more congressmen on the payroll, and maintain their status quo. The average Sheeple is already on the treadmill to premature death . The body bags full of heart defects,from Korea and Vietnam, didn't go unnoticed.

The first symptoms of nutritional stress are not physical but mental, and theirs plenty of signs of that . Government employees, and security organisations, cant make balanced decisions either . The second symptoms of nutritional stress are shown in the new born, because foetal development has been flawed, with regards to essential elements from the mother. The third sign is starving fat people , who can never seem to satiate their hunger . The forth sign ,is denial, denying that anything is wrong when everyone is on some king of medication.

We have an economic system that profits the few, from increasing levels of sickness in the general population. Economically the system is eating itself, to survive . The sad thing is that this might be normal for over advanced societies , that has primarily to create occupations to keep everyone motivated.

I agree that our hope for our children is in our children. People of my generation allowed this to happen, but we can still help the generations after us reverse it, the poor eating the fake food and the new psychiatric syndromes it may or may not be creating.

Taking money from these people is like selling your soul. Many of us sell or have sold our souls to these corporations too, either for a paycheck or a kickback or stock tip, depending how high you go on the totem pole.

As for all kids being aware...some are and some aren't. Red Bull? Really. Pure poison. Doritos. Carts full of this stuff and tantrums thrown when they're not in the vending machines at schools and they have to go get the stuff elsewhere. Hey, but some is better than none!
