Anyway, here are some things that I've come across the last few days:
From the Heal Thyself! Facebook page:
If the food you're eating was made by one of these companies, then there is an excellent chance that what you're eating is NOT food.
|Does looking at this make you as depressed as it does me?|
I also found this on the Heal Thyself! Facebook page, but it actually comes from Natural Society:
Photos of what families in different countries eat. It's good that most other countries eat more fruits & veggies than we do, but it is horrifically apparent that the "western diet" has totally invaded the other industrialized countries. Natural Society is a new website to me, and it has some pretty interesting articles on the front page.
It's been discussed in this household that we actively avoid Montsano products (think Roundup) because of their questionable business practices. So I was not really surprised to see this article on Consumerist a few days ago: Montsano Blamed for Bee Population Collapse, So It Buys Bee Research Firm. REALLY?!?! I can't say that I'm shocked by this, but I am so categorically offended by it that I can barely wrap my head around it. No words. SMH.
But to end on a happy note, I absolutely love Crunchy Betty and her web site. And her squee-filled article about hearing Joel Salatin speak in Colorado Springs was absolutely darling. She was so excited that it really came through in the article she wrote about it. I'm not quite sure as to why it made me feel like some progress was being made or that there is hope out there, but the timing of the article was absolutely perfect for me. In my opinion, Crunchy Betty and Joel Salatin are both rock stars.
