We are killing ourself with our own food?
« on: 15/07/2009 03:22:03 »
Hi there,

Just to share here...

It seems to me that we human being have the tendency to kill our self and our own species.

It is absolutely outrageous to know that our food has been altered too much. From the most simplest form of table salts, to the complex plants, we have the tendency to modify them.

Do you think you could protect yourself by being a veggie? Think again!

To start with, our air isn't good to breathe. Everybody knows...

Our water isn't fit to drink. Today, it contains at least two chemicals, namely Chloride and Fluoride. That doesn't include all other chemicals caused by pollutions.

Sugar. All of us take sugar everyday. But do you know, sugar now has been added with Titanium Oxide? It is to make it so that sugar shines more. Isn't this a madness?

Table salt is one the most common food additive. But do you know Dextrose is added to help to stabilize Iodine? Plus it contains anti caking agents which which stop salts from clumping together, which are commonly made from ferrocyanides? CYANIDES!!!

So, you see, we've been "attacked" from all direction with all the chemicals that normally wouldn't be in our system.

At the end, we complained, "Why more and more people are getting Alzheimer? Why more are getting cancer?"

They say, it is safe, but who really knows???

We're still alive and living longer than ever before!

This might seem to suggest that we are not doing anything wrong, quite the contrary! But all the same, I have to agree with you, we are playing around too much with our food. We may be doing OK right now, but what about the future? And what effect is our tampering having on other animals?

"are we killing ourself with our own food?".
Not as quickly as starvation does it.

This is true if you look at it from an individual's point of view and the short-term. If you look at it from a species/large population point of view and long-term, it depends entirely on whether the methods of creating food for those who are threatened by starvation are sustainable. If not you have many more people starving later. How is that better?

Yes we are. If we all became vegetarians, this would use up less land, water and carbon and so our food supply would last much longer. As the population increases we will eventually have to be veggies.
PS. I'm not a veggie so I am contributing to the problem.

Indeed. I sometimes wonder if it would not help me too. But it is so expensive.
