The food industry, and how it’s failing us

This morning, as I drink my coffee, I am on facebook chatting with a good friend (who’s celebrating her birthday today!! Happy birthday mama!!!).  We are talking about how her daughter is suffering from a skin condition, and is not getting any better.  She has seen her doctor, a dermatologist, an allergist, has been on steroids, creams, the list goes on and on I am sure.  And guess what? Right now nothing is working.  The poor kid is so upset.  Which breaks my heart.  It would break any mothers heart. My friends child is such a beautiful child, but she thinks she’s ugly because of this skin condition. As a mother, when you can’t help your child, and the medical community isn’t helping your child, you feel like crap, plain and simple.  More than crap.  There are no words to describe how you feel. As I ask her question after question, I start to wonder what she is eating, and whether or not she is eating organically.  Anyone who knows me well knows that I have been someone who has favored organic eating for quite some time.  I don’t want unknown foreign substances in my body, or in the bodies of my husband, children, or loved ones.  You don’t understand just how many additives, chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, GMO’s are in our food.  When we were young, we didn’t see THIS level of obesity, autism, food allergies, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders, cancers, diabetes, did we???? It’s scary, this world that we live in.  It’s scary to think that certain foods that are sold in other countries by companies that sell here as well (like Kraft) are not allowed to sell those products with some of the additives that they sell them here with.  That speaks volumes doesn’t it?  So, what’s in our food, and what do we do about it?  How do we fix this, and how do we help ourselves to become healthier? A few months ago, I read an amazing book about the food industry, and honestly it was an eye opener about what was REALLY going on.  I thought I knew it all, but I certainly did not.  I think this book is an important read for EVERYONE, but especially anyone who is suffering from any type of illness or medical condition:

indexThis book is available in paperback, as well as kindle on amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/They-Put-That-Food-Navigating/dp/1502715406/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1413641235&sr=8-1

Trust me when I tell you that you will be just as amazed as I was after you read this.  We need to do something people. We need to be healthier.  We can’t depend on the medical community to do it for us.  We have to do it for ourselves.  Taking control, and reinventing our healthcare is the first step!!
