These are little interview clips really, but I thought they were fitting for our Monday Movie series. The cool thing is you don’t have to wait to watch them!
OK, the introduction to the first one is obnoxiously long, but kind of funny – the lady rambling all of those things that you are never going to remember. Uh, that’s what credits are for!
Of course the title is dramatic and catchy…and at times we all find ourselves in situations where we have to eat convenience foods. I’m not saying I’m never eating anything packaged or manufactured again, but…
Here are the points I thought were interesting:
In a 20 year history, genetically modified crops haven’t really shown any real productivity gains for agriculture.
There are better technologies to use than genetically modified crops.
Large food manufacturers use popular health trends to market their products, and they are crafty at putting health claims on their overly processed products. For example, after the the public started to become educated about the evils of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) they started marketing things as “Made with REAL sugar!”. Hmm…maybe a better choice, but not necessarily a healthy choice.
Don’t buy products with more than 5 ingredients. It’s a sign of being highly processed and less healthy.
Interesting points continued….
“Healthy food is found in the produce section without packaging…”
We’re using our public schools as a disposal system for overproduced subsidized food. Most current school lunch programs teach children how to become fast food consumers.
Eat REAL food.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
How do you think this applies to highly processed gluten-free foods?
How could being on a gluten-free diet possibly put you a step ahead of the general American public when it comes to making food choices, reading labels and being conscious about what you eat?
Please share your thoughts as a comment. Thx!
