Definitely scary what is going in our food. I am guilty of it too, but we should take a bit more time to read labels and make sure we are happy with what we are putting into our bodies. I really believe that we vote with our dollars, and when we buy this crud, we're just saying "it's okay." A few years ago I read an article about some of the additives in foods and how some frozen meals have the same chemicals as antifreeze.

It makes me very aware how awful our air is and the junk they put in our food. Did you read where Whole Foods is getting their "organic" frozen veggies from China? I have to be more aware of checking labels to see if China is stamped on packages.



I don't know that it is the air, the air quality in Italy isn't that great according to what I have read. I could see it being the food, I don't know if they put the same things in their processed foods as we do. I know people that went organic say the same thing you did. They feel better, less hungry, etc..

Does anyone wonder if it could be what they are putting in the food? Cows, chickens injected and fed hormones. Genetically grown crops, etc. Not to mention the high frutos corn syrup and artificial sweeteners put into everyday food to make it taste better in order to sell.

The article below talks about the flavor industry.

I think a major paart of the problem is fast food. So many moms work and kids have so many activities that their moms don't have the time to fix a homecooked meal every night. They end up pulling in the drive-thru on the way to the kids activities are on the way home. It is tough for working moms. They are just as tired as the Dads.

It would be great if all the husbands knew how to cook, too. Then there would be a good chance, between the two of them, dinner could make it to the table.

The other problem is the absolute crap kids are fed at school. I cannot believe that someone has not done something about the school menu. I am only familiar with the food that is served in elementary school.

You have children who do not get meals at home because parents cannot afford the groceries. The only food some of them get is at school and it's trash at the elementary level.
