of Foods in Modern Society.
In these days of ready made meals and Bio Engineered plants and
animals, the nutrition of foods has become a very slippery slope.
the not so far distant past, we ate what came from the ground the way
that it had grown and developed over millions of years. Using
the waste products that we didn't eat, or that came out the back end of
the animals we fed it to, to till back into the soil as fertilizer.
we used the seeds from the heartiest, best tasting plants to grow the
next crop, and bred the fittest animals to get the next generation. But
that is just encouraging "natural" selection.
conditions, the nutrition of foods was maintained through only the best
of everything being passed onto the next generation.
foods are created by genetic engineers and food scientists who only
have less than 100 years of knowledge to go on. And in many cases, only
a few decades of research to back up their decisions.
earth can we even begin to believe that these scientists can possibly
manage to improve the nutrition of foods over what was done through
survival of the fittest over millions of years and tens of thousands of
One of the primary causes of the
obesity epidemic in the United States, which is spreading through the
world, is our highly processed, engineered food diet.
best thing you can do to improve your chances of weight loss, and to
improve your general health, would be to shop only the outer perimeter
of your grocery store or at your local farmers market.
you hadn't noticed, the aisles of the store are filled with all of the
processed foods which have been created for our convenience. These
foods are generally very low in nutrition and have so many
preservatives in them, that they can't possibly do any good for your
body. It is simply not possible to manipulate food this much without
seriously affecting the nutrition of foods produced this way.
least in the outer perimeter of the store, you are mostly finding whole
foods which have been minimally processed.
even that is becoming questionable as well. Because, depending on where
you shop, it is probable that the fruits and vegetables have been
covered in pesticides, fertilized with only growth speed in mind, and
genetically engineered to be more efficient to pick, ship and store.
is not the way to grow food that is high in nutritional value, only in
monetary value to the producers.
Sadly, these kinds
of growing practices are practiced in the meat and dairy industry as
well. Animals are raised in cages or pens, where they never even see
real, live grass or leafy greans. They are fed only the types of food
that are both cheap and promote rapid production. Health of the animal
is a completely secondary concern, since that is not regulated, and can
be covered up in processing.
If the animals are not
getting the nutrition they need in order to grow healthy muscle (they
aren't exercising in pens either), how healthy can the meat from them
If the milk producers are only being bred for
their ability to
produce large quantities of milk as quickly as possible, with their
diet reduced to the minimum for that. How good can the milk be?
simple answer is that heavy processing and genetic altering to create
products for mass consumption at great profit greatly affects the
nutrition of foods.
So I say that the answer to the
question of "Who
should eat organic food?" is ...
