Food For Thought : I am Sorry

Share via email

Seriously – I am pre-apologizing from the bottom of my little heart

Why?

It is possible I may destroy everything you enjoy about food. 

Well, not all food.

 Just most food -  like Oreos, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and my ultimate favorite – McDonald’s. 

Oh, and drinks, too.    Yes,  I am looking at you, my beloved Diet Coke.

Actually – I am not sure that we can classify that stuff 100% as food anymore.

Now, in the effort of full disclosure, I still eat the aforementioned food. 

 

 

Why? I am not  sure.  I am lazy, tired and have a husband who loves artifical foods…. 

Here is some food for thought:

According to Robyn O’Brien, since 1999, the number of children with food allergies has jumped by 50%. 

Per the BBC, nearly half of the UK population is expected to contract cancer in their lifetime.    Right now, a woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.  

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) are banned in multiple countries but not here.  Most of these food items have not been tested before they are released for our consumption.  In fact, multiple countries such as the European Union, Australia, China and India require GMO labeling.  Again, not the US.   

You may have seen BHA listed as an ingredient in your gum or cake mix,  but did you know it is also found in rubber, petroleum and food packaging.,  Artificial colors can also be derived from petroleum and are thought to promote ADHD and various cancers.  Ewe.

 Now, I am sure you are thinking – Dizee, I thought this is a happy blog. 

Yes, it is!

But, this stuff is scary!   And, the more I learn, the more I am amazed at what I didn’t know!

As Cat Stevens said

I can’t keep it in, I’ve gotta let it out.
I’ve got to show the world, world’s got to see

 

Am I dating myself?  Maybe it’s just that I have more eclectic taste in music than some…. 

Would Robin Thicke work better?

Can’t let it get past me
You’re far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines

I dunno, I am still going with Cat Stevens…
