I have been writing a second book of the challenge to maintain health in the USA. Both physically and socially there are continuous obstacles to pursuing a pristinely healthy lifestyle.
I ran into a great explanation of how our food is so nutrition deprived and contaminated with toxic chemical pollution unless certified organic.
It is a concise explanation of something that has been going on our entire lives. To expand on the idea that the toxic waste products from wartime are placed into our food more fully, there is a great book Twinkie, Deconstructed: My Journey to Discover How the Ingredients Found in Processed Foods Are Grown, Mined (Yes, Mined), and Manipulated into What America Eats which exposes the origin of many of the mysterious ingredients found in our manufactured foods. You can find this book thru my Pam Maloney Products Section linked thru any of the books and searched.
Truth be told, we were volunteered to be the toxic waste containers for the toxic waste from war time which could not legally be disposed of in the oceans or ground. We were volunteered without our knowledge or permission. The sophistication of this practice has caused mass marketing to convince the naive public that these ingredients are “good for you”, necessary, desirable, irressistable. The wide profit margin for the marketer has perpetuated the practice as there is a lot of money to be made from it.
Almost all the products marketed on television are created from toxic petrochemical synthesis.
