What Are You Eating?

Three items in my email this morning concerning healthy eating and food, need to be shared.
The first was about the ongoing battle with Monsanto, Kraft and their friends at DuPont and Pepsi, in their efforts to defeat the GMO labeling propositions in the upcoming elections.
These bullies are spending millions in the two states where it is once again, on the ballot.
It will take a miracle to defeat the kind of money that this monster company and their comrades in crime possess.
This type of legislation against GMO’s has been defeated in nearly every state where it has been on the ballot so far, with only Maine, Connecticut and Vermont actually succeeding to get it passed.
There is simply not enough opposition money to fight these huge, powerful Corporations.
Consumers have repeatedly spoken out strongly about their feelings on GMO’s not being labeled, but it has fallen on deaf ears everywhere.
Because no one can afford or wants to have these Giants as their enemies.
These Companies know exactly where to put their money and have strong lobbyists and greedy politicians in their pockets.
The next news item was about the myriad of foods that are still being sold everywhere, that contain the rubber mat additive azodicarbonamide, that was recently dumped by Sub Way after being outed and ashamed by a tenacious Blogger who exposed them.
But, yikes there are hundreds more food products still out there that have it in them and few know it.
Please check out this list below and refuse to buy their product until the rubber mats are removed.
Also, please do tell the individual Companies and the stores why you are refusing to buy it as well.
Strength in numbers!
And last but definitely, not least by any means, is a lengthy report on something very close to my heart.
Can your diet really fight and or defeat cancer?
After reading this story about this man and his work, I was thrilled.
The thinking of this brilliant scientist, T. Colin Campbell, is something that I have strongly believed in for many years and I concur with nearly 100 % of this conclusions.
As with Dr. Campbell, I also believe that the consumption of animals is a very bad thing, for them and for us.
This retired professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell, has devoted his entire life to finding the healthiest ways to eat.
His work was at first widely praised, but then as bottom lines were being threatened by his accurate findings, those who had previously soundly supported and admired him, fell away.
This man will not back down, he knows what is at stake.
If you would like to explore the possibility of starting yourself and your loved ones on a new path, away from a life of unhealthy eating, won’t you please read the story?
If for no other reason, than to perhaps consider a healthier alternative to a meat based diet.
Better yet, ask yourself this question: what are you eating?
