Human Extinction by Food
Since Michelle Obama named obesity as the biggest crisis facing the United States of America, it has been difficult keeping quiet. The biggest crisis facing the US of A and every single person is not obesity but economics. However, obesity is and should be an issue, especially since there is growing concern that the real problem is not with the obese person but with the food they eat, the food that no longer resembles food in any form.
Since livestock herding and farming have gone corporate, a disturbing element has been added to the end product — food. Animals are injected with antibiotics, hormones, and steroids and food that is not GMO is often treated to the same chemical cocktail in an ever shorter list of available foods. Food is not, as one young man pointed out to me a couple weeks ago, food, but food-like stuff.
The nutritional value of food, animal and vegetable, is no longer the gold standard that Nature gives it but a chemical cocktail that is designed to make the food taste better, be more economical to produce, and less like food than can be helped. We might as well be eating Soylent; it probably has more food value. Is it any wonder that there is a constantly growing rise in health problems like diabetes, fibromyalgia, autism, and other immune system related issues and that obesity is a major issue? People aren’t eating more food; many are eating less, but the result is the same — malnutrition. It is the reverse of having a tapeworm where the more the person eats the more weight they lose because of the parasite growing inside. Now the parasite is corporate farming and a shrinking list of edible plants.
The chemical cocktail regularly fed to our food does more harm than good and our bodies, so ideally suited to life on this planet and to fueling the immune system and repairing the body, has been replaced by a hunger for more because the food value and nutrition are absent. The body responds by seeking more food as it can no longer break down food into the chemicals needed to sustain and nurture life, but more food is not the answer. The answer is getting real food and that is in short supply.
All these chemicals in the food chain may well have damaged the human body so diseases like diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, autism, and obesity continue to run rampant. The only people who will survive will be those adapted to finding nutrition in the chemical sludge cocktail that currently passes for food. How can it be otherwise when these chemicals are in the water as well as the food?
It’s time to go back to the beginning, go back to farming naturally, and get the EPA busy reversing the chemical doomsday bomb ticking away in the food chain that may end up being the nutritional asteroid that will end the human race.
