Day 32- "I Am What I Eat...."


Recently I came across this article:
20 Ingredients To Memorize and Avoid In Any Food You Consume 

PROBLEM:

When walking down the isles of grocery stores it is really hard to avoid food that does not contain at least one of those harmful ingredients unless you are at the "whole food store". That is absolutely ridiculous. 
So let's see what does this indicate. According to the article those are some of the harmful ingredients one can find in food. Most of them are preservatives for shelve food- some come from what we feed our food, or the pesticides chemicals we use for our food. So it is not like we can say- oh I am just not going to buy shelve food. I mean it is in the fruit, meat, dairy....anything made with these foods. And these are ingredients that have been approved of the FDA. 
So lets follow the "logic" behind all this- which ultimately leads to profit and money which is the abuse driven force in this money system.

So I have been eating foods containing at least one of the above harmful ingredients. 
One- at some point I was not even aware of it- because nutrition and what we eat and where it comes from is not a class part of the school curriculum to teach children because if it was children will get some common sense of the abuse in this system.
Two- just because I am aware of it now- does not indicate that I can afford it. Which would be the case for many people out there (meaning shopping at the "whole food" store and organic).
Three- if harmful food has been approved of the FDA, how can I trust that organic is really organic (also approved by the FDA)? I mean just because the label says it....LoL we have created a world where we cannot trust!!! Organic is more expensive and it is suggested as a "free option" choice- like "Well if you don't want to be poisoned come buy our more expensive organic food"...That is not a choice, because if it was everyone will chose to eat food without the poison. MONEY makes that choice.

So I have been eating food containing at least one of those ingredients for many years and at some point my body reacted to the chemicals and responded as the result of an unbalance in my body creating a consequence. In my case it was endometriosis cyst on my ovary. I had to have it removed twice. Doctors don't know what the main cause is, however what is certain is that is it linked to hormonal imbalance. 

Now there are many reasons for a person to have a hormonal imbalance- but the food I eat is a HUGE contributor. I mean "we are what we eat" after all. Our bodies take the food, break it down and use it for energy. But if this food is poisoned then the body has to fight extra, and the thing that cannot be digested and gives absolutely no nutritional value to support the body- is stored in the body and becomes toxins. Toxins that eventually harm the body creating and mutating the life organisms that DO support the body.

So then money were made from me going to have surgery to remove the cyst. And the solution I was given was to take birth control pills. Instead of doctors focusing on the food intake and sending me to a nutritionist- they give me a synthetic hormonal balancing pill- that in itself comes with all other kinds of side effects. Why? Because then the pharmaceutical company can make MONEY. And when I told my doctor that I am taking a supplement that helps with hormone balance- It was brushed off because it was not approved by the FDA. 

So in short just as any other money problem for profit in this world- the problem/poison is created by the entity that will give you the solution/antidote all in the name of MONEY.

In the following video: White House Arrests GMO Petitioner the group of activist who attempted to contact the president to give the petition that people want GMO to be listed in the labels of food- were arrested. It is really interesting to know that there are ingredients that don't even have to be placed on the labels of food.  WTF?

The following is a label for a Hershey's bar chocolate: Milk Chocolate (sugar, milk, chocolate, cocoa butter, lactose, milk fat, soy lecithin, PGRP, Emulsifier, vanillin, artificial flavor-which is not said what to be exactly)....ummm what happened to just milk, cocoa and butter. What are all those other things in there? I wonder if there is a little bottle that contains "emulsifier". Like "Let's see, milk, cocoa...oh and let's not forget to add the emulsifier

Not only is putting chemicals in our food supply affect us but also the life around us. Pesticides used on crops affect not only the insects that eat the crop but also other animals that may eat the crop. For example in this article about the bees.

GLOBAL SOLUTION:

Whole foods and organic is not a solution. It is presented as an alternative to make you think that you have free choice. And free choice is bought. 
A solution is to stop putting poison in the food. It is to have the common sense to do what is best for all. It is to make sure that WE do not poison our food in the name of money/profit. It is to make sure that the food we do produce is up to highest nutritional value. Thus much of the garbage food we know today would simply cease to exists. It would simply not be necessary as it would have no practical function. And the food that we do require will be produced in a way that will be free of harmful ingredients and YES be available to everyone.
So if the money/profit like anything else that is exploited and abused in this system is the PROBLEM than common sense will tell us that this is what must be changed.


I am just one example of a person who has seen an actual physical consequence to my body. I am just one example of the many people out there who see that placing poison in our food and calling it legal is insane! 

REWARD:

The reward is simply that we will be able to go and buy food that we can trust. It is not about putting what kind of harmful ingredients are in our food on a label- it is about making sure that those ingredients are NOT put in the food at all. In today's world of technology and scientific research we are able to create that which is best for all. We are able to investigate that which is harmful and that which is not. And natural preservatives are already used in the more expensive foods.

I can even see the opening for nutrition careers where one can talk to their nutritionist and determine at a molecular level what is good for them and every other individual. Not every kind of food is good for someone's body, thus we do not need to eat the food that is not supporting for our bodies.
