I am constantly amazed
at the lack of understanding from our elected and unelected officials relative
to obesity and poor health. Yesterday the Los Angeles City Council introduced
"Meatless Mondays" as an initiative to combat obesity. There was no mention of switching to grass-fed beef, the
connection between toxicity and obesity, the dangers of consuming genetically
modified foods, or to the side effects of preservatives and chemicals in bagged
and boxed food. I was most alarmed that there was no mention of the solution -
eating real, clean food.
When are we going to
wise up as people and realize it's not meat that's the problem? It's what
they put INTO the meat! When will the facts be a matter of public
discussion? Poison is being sprayed onto foods in the form of pesticides, which people are consuming. And it
doesn't stop there - nature is being turned upside down with
The lack of
understanding or willingness of our government officials to fess up to the real
problem is putting us all in danger. The human body cannot continue to
withstand the bombardment of chemicals. So what can we do to avoid these
issues? Eat real whole foods: real grass-fed beef, organic chicken, wild caught
salmon, real fats, organic fruits and vegetables. When we take the toxins in, our body is triggered to store these unusable chemicals in our fat tissue and other organs. The more toxins, the fatter we get. Simply changing the way we
eat could go a long way towards solving the obesity and health problems that
are now epidemic.
