Entire food system based off faulty food?
Americans are innovative and dedicated. We often manage to find simple answers to complex problems.
Following World War II and facing BOOMING population growth from returning soldiers, US lawmakers and interest groups combined forces for a noble cause: Produce More Food for the baby boomer generation.
Since a growing population will consume more food, the government prioritized certain crops to be the backbone of a nation. In particular, the yellow, starchy kernels we know and love as Corn. The crop is officially subsidized — with farmer’s being paid BILLIONS per year on government payroll.
With THAT kind of incentive, why wouldn’t they produce corn?
Since corn can be produced for so “cheap” (actual cost is covered by you, the taxpayer), the abundance of corn has corporations researching every, possible, function of corn. In fact, nearly every processed food in the grocery store will contain “cheap” corn products.
Corn alone is greatly responsible for our obesity
Imagine putting low grade gasoline in your car every week for ten years — what do you think would happen to the engine?
Yet, thats what Americans are doing every single day. Each time we take a sip of Coca-Cola, the low grade fuel degrades us.
What common products contain / are derived from corn?
- Frozen dinners
- Soft drinks
- Shake N’ Bake – Tangy Honey Glaze
- Capri Sun
- Kellog’s (nearly all)
- Heinz Ketchup
- Yoplait Yogurt
- Some processed lunch meats
- BBQ sauce
- Oscar Meyer Lunchables
Take a second to think about which products contain High Fructose Corn Syrup.
For one moment, really think about which items contain HFCS.
Of these products, ALL OF THE PROCESSED FOODS above contain corn in the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup.
That is essentially refined, unnatural sugar that your body has no clue what to do with. What is a body to do when bombarded with simple carbs? High Fructose Corn Syrup is almost always stored as body fat.
MERCURY in your snackfood?????
Aside from spiking blood sugar levels so that your body struggles with the calories, there are more risks involved.
Mercury turned up in many foods not previously known to be sources of mercury, including many preferred by children, the group said. It includes Nutri-Grain Strawberry Cereal Bars, Quaker Oatmeal to go bars, Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, Yoplait Strawberry yogurt, Market Pantry Grape Jelly and Coca-Cola: All contain mercury.
- Mercury leaks into corn, and is in many High Fructose Corn Syrup containing products.
Poisoning rational adults is one thing, but children are the real victims here. High fructose corn syrup wasn’t around 100 years ago, and it might not be around in 100 more years. Your life is in your hands, do you really want to give that away to corporations who abuse political clout through dangerous subsidies?
Stay natural, stay safe.
A diet high in corn products will result in obesity and diabetes — if not heart disease and cancer. Corn, itself, is not a toxin, but it has overgrown worse than a yeast infection. We need to gain control over the balance — the food source of our country — the core of what it means to be American.
Food Reform is the only sustainable health care system.
- End obesity by reducing corn production.
- Prevent disease by offering a bounty of healthy foods
