First off let me say that I am not a tree hugger. I am a concerned parent and a person who has decided to try and be as healthy as I can. Having
said that, I find it very disturbing that our society has placed such a low value on something as important as our health. More specifically, the
importance of healthy food as opposed to processed foods. Our children are growing into an epidemic of obese children who are likely to not outlive
us. Diseases are at unparallelled levels and yet no one seems to want to admit what has caused it. From our farmers to our government, the
corruption and coercion that has taken place over the last 30 years is appalling.
Growing up in the late 60's and early 70's, I can never recall anyone having a food allergy. Out of a school with nearly 900 kids, I can only
remember one or two that had diabetes. Obesity was not very prevalent, maybe 5% of kids were obese. Our farmers have taken the side of the evil
corporations in the pursuit of money, and sold their souls to them. Right now nearly 75% of all food grown in the US has been genetically modified.
It is now more expensive to eat a real, proper diet than it is to pollute yourself. If you were to eat grass fed beef, you would find the taste very
strange. The foods we eat are not natural, and are anything but nutritious.
I have come to the conclusion that population control will be in the form of GMO foods. once a female has consumed enough GMO foods, her reproductive
capabilities will diminish. Right now we have more women who cannot conceive than at any point in human history. The consequences of our consumption
of these foods will have devastating effects 30 or 40 years down the road, at which point it will be too late to change it. These Frankenstein foods
are not the foods our bodies were designed to eat.
No one can know what the future effects these mutated foods will have on human DNA. We all know that bacteria and even insects will adapt. There are
now strains of bacteria that are antibiotic resistant through mutation. Insects and even weeds have become immune to most pesticides. How long will
it be before we start developing immune deficiencies or worse, start having mutated offspring. If we do not put a stop to this madness, we have
effectively signed the death warrant for our children and grandchildren.
So my question in summation is, what if anything can be done to stop the madness? What power do we have that can force change and bring our food
supply back to a healthy state it was intended to be? Or are we just going to go down without a fight?
