Recently, I watched this video by Alex Jone’s Prison Planet. Scary is the short way to describe it. Although I haven’t done a tremendous amount of research on this topic, I do know that we have a lot to be concerned about when it comes to our food supply. GMOs, growth hormones and toxic chemicals plague are foods, and the consumer, unfortunately isn’t always privy to the information.
When it comes to buying for you and your family, I can’t emphasize enough that you look for organic options that are Non-GMO and hormone free. That is a good place to start. Then, my next piece of advice is to avoid packaged products as much as possible. Why? Because packaged products are where so many bad ingredients linger. Everything from artificial sweeteners to chemicals plague our grocery store shelves. Although the time to prepare a meal or a snack from scratch may be a little longer, think of it as an investment in your health and your future. If you do not take the time and pay the extra cost now, there is a strong chance you will be paying for it later with medical bills and potentially, a shortened life span.
If you have the time, watch the video below, as it does offer some interesting insights. Some of it, I do believe, may be over-dramatized, but I prefer to air on the side of caution and do what is best for me and my family’s health.
