Since we began our journey of eating real foods and eliminating toxins, Erin and I have always agreed on two very important points:
- There is no way to unlearn the truth about our food supply
- We feel compelled to share those truths because it means improving and saving lives
We’d come so far, from once trusting that food companies and the FDA have our best interests in mind to knowing that they’ve systematically destroyed our food supply. The misinformation they preach and the laws they promote have one purpose – to line their pockets. They couldn’t care less about our health.
We’ve read extensively about the FDA allowing food companies to use new chemicals or processes in our food that are illegal in many countries, or at least are heavily regulated. We’ve read about food companies sitting around in their board rooms plotting the downfall of healthy foods to promote their own laboratory creations.
And 99% of Americans don’t know this stuff or hide their heads in the sand. Education often requires action, and we’re comfortable in our ignorance. Once you know that food dyes could be causing your child’s asthma and ADD, as a parent, you feel like you must take action. That’s not easy.
Think about this – is there a bigger and more damaging lie out there than that our food is safe to eat?
And that food isn’t the root cause of virtually every degenerative disease we know of? Or that our food supply isn’t the primary cause to over half of the top 10 causes of American deaths per year?
If one day you went from being blindly happy in thinking that what you were eating was healthy for you, to realizing that what you feed your kids is causing ADD, asthma, allergies, obesity, diabetes, and even cancer? I’m guessing that would shake you to your core, because that’s what happened to us.
(Side note – being a very religious person, I believe THE biggest lies revolve around God and Jesus Christ, but corporations that knowingly kill millions of people per year by marketing that their processed and toxin-riddled foods are healthy? That’s not far off).
The point is our food supply is poisoned. There’s too much money at stake for companies to not try to gain an edge. That edge is often finding ways to make their food more fun (food dyes), last longer (MSG), or cheaper (high fructose corn syrup), to name a few examples.
and some pretty damning evidence of what it’s doing to us.
