Food Matters, The Movie

Come on, you knew all along that the foods you think you love were not good for you. You would joke about a Twinkie or a chicken nugget or whatever pops up on your radar as a must have. You wondered how something could have a shelf life for over a year and still be good for you. Ah Skittles, taste the rainbow...of food dyes and all sugar and fructose.

You close your eyes and mind and cross your fingers and hope you won't be harmed in the process of eating.
You did wonder how something without blueberries could taste like blueberries and then eat it.

Here in America, one of the criteria of a meal is did you get your money's worth. Load it up and come back for more. Quantity over quality. We want it fast, we want it now!

I know, I am late to the table on this too. But when one starts to read and watch how foods are prepared for human consumption for fast food franchises and the home, it can scare you straight. It did me.

Natural and Artificial Flavors, they should have a skull and cross bones marking on the package. You will find coloring, thickening, and extenders listed on the food labels that are also used in paint products and sink drain cleaners. But we go blindly on consuming. Quantity and price matters most.

GMO or genetically modified foods and plants created and tinkered with are unsafe to eat and drink, but if you don't know or care it will happen in the market place.

Much of the milk sold in stores came from dairies that used growth hormones to make the cows grow bigger and faster and because of the unsafe living conditions, were loaded with antibiotics to keep them healthy.
A funny thing happened when some of them stopped that, the milk tastes better and lasts longer.

I know I could go on and on about this, maybe later. Watch the movie, open your eyes, question everything, and you will feel better. I promise.
