We’ve become so removed and de-sensitized from our food sources, do we really know what we are eating? What chemicals or ingredients are being added? What safety standards are being upheld? Why is it necessary to fabricate foods in a science lab to make them “enticing”, addictive, and to last FOREVER?? It’s interesting how we choose to be oblivious of where our food comes from and assume all is good. The messages of these eye-opening food documentaries and books reveal information that will allow any viewer to make conscious decisions in their food choices.

By making conscious choices, you can take charge of your own health, and also change the health of the environment, which is in rapid decline. This isn’t about having to cook all the time (although that’s a good thing to do), nor is it necessarily about supporting animal rights and becoming vegan. It’s about being aware of what the big Food corporations are doing, and how they are spreading the diabetes-obesity (diabesity) pandemic throughout the world by manufacturing cheap, addictive, low-nutrient, fake foods. It’s about caring and being knowledgeable about your food choices.
