Did you know that people were generally healthier during World War II food rationing than they are now? One of the primary reasons is because they were loading up on food from their Victory Garden. With things like sugar being harder to come by things like Adult Onset Diabetes (which is showing up in children in epidemic proportions today) declined.
Conversations surrounding the recent debt ceiling debacle in Washington, DC, included discussions about rising health care costs. Much of those health care costs are related to preventable diseases. We are at war…with food and advertising entities who will stop at nothing, including our deaths, in the name of the all-mighty dollar. Do I have anything against companies trying to earn a profit? Of course not. But they will sell what people buy. And just because they sell it, doesn’t mean I have to buy it. And maybe if there are enough people voting with their wallets, they’ll rethink the poison they are selling to us and replace it with something beneficial.
