K guys, I’ve got some good news and some bad news….the food industry is doing a great job of selling their products (that’s the good news), but they don’t give a rip about your health! There are things in the food on the grocery store shelves that are there to keep food from going bad, and to make us eat more of it, but ultimately it is terrible for us (that’s the bad news).
Have you heard of DDT? you know, the stuff we used to spray on our crops, until we realized it was toxic, because all the birds were dying? Well it was outlawed in the US. WHEW! But guess who the worlds large producer of DDT is? THE U FRIGGIN S A!
We sell this banned substance to other countries so they can spray it on their crops (to keep the bugs from eating them). Then we import those crops back it to the USA. So if you’re buying produce from any grocery store, you are likely getting a hefty dose of DDT and numerous other chemicals and pesticides (bad news). But the good news is you don’t have to pay as much for it. Thank goodness for that.
So, if you are not in to eating noxious chemicals, and if you think buying organic is too expensive, then Buy Local. Most smaller farms don’t treat their plants with toxic chemicals and still grow quality produce. Plus you’ll be helping out your local community.
So put your $dollars$ in the pockets of people that need it and work hard for it! Your neighborly farmers! Not towards a factory churning out junk that is ultimately bad for our health….
