I can’t believe they allow a vast amount of toxins in our food. Most of these chemicals do not need to be there. Is this done for a reason? I personally think there are many reasons. The main one is corporate greed. They want to make the food product they sell as cheap as possible; so they put less real food in their products and more toxins that are cheaper. They can then put it in a fancy box and make it sound healthy to sell as much as they can. They also put chemicals like MSG and high fructose corn syrup to hook the consumer with addictive taste enhancers. I am starting to believe that Big Pharma is connected to the Big Food companies. The more toxic our food is, the more people will be dependent on medication. Do you see the pattern? Is it any wonder why many of the larger drug stores have some of the most toxic food on their shelves? It is estimated that over ninety percent of chronic illnesses in our society are caused by lack of nutrition, poor diet and lack of exercise. That is a staggering number! I was a victim myself.
We need to start talking responsibility for our health. I personally have. I refused to be willingly poisoned by mega corporations. I am not buying into the deception anymore. Taking care of my body is a passion of mine now. It is in fact the temple of God. I want to stop putting toxic food in my body that lack any nutrition and replace it with foods that heal and nourish the body. I am not finished blogging about this topic. If I can help others then I have accomplished something. I am not an expert. I am learning from people that are much more knowledgeable than I am. I have followed the following groups on Facebook that provide a wealth of knowledge on health and the companies and chemicals that poison us:Occupy Monsanto

I am certain that there are hundreds of good sites as well. One piece of advice is to be careful and not fall for bogus health claims online either. The advice I give is that don’t support anyone or any company that puts greed and profit over the health of a fellow human being.
“Eat to live” instead of “live to eat”.
