(NaturalNews) If the land of the free and home of the brave looked in the mirror today, they’d see a diseased and docile figure in the reflection — a whimpering fragment of what men and women used to be. Setting the shovel and hoe aside, Americans have run for cover, hiding under the wings of a food system that only smothers and controls their health.
Have you ever experienced the freedom of growing even a little of your own food? Replacing sugars, preservatives and dyes from the grocery store with fresh produce from the garden can make all the difference in your happiness and health. Mixing your hands in the dirt brings a hearty, healthy connection with Earth that you cannot get walking around like a zombie under fluorescent supermarket lights.
Processed food industry producing fatter, more diabetic, immune-system-suppressed Americans than ever before
When America’s first large supermarket appeared in 1930, the processed food industry got the green light. Cheap, easy and fake foods grew in abundance through the years, moving from chemical-sprayed fields to store shelves to dinner tables, to forks and to intestines, where the food ingredients began to break down, changing the physiology of the human race. This launched America toward a “perfect storm” of runaway diabetes and death.
America slowly evolved into what it was consuming, becoming cheap, easy and fake. It didn’t take long for big agriculture to be subsidized to meet the growing demand for this processed food. Today, almost every processed food has some form of GM corn, soy or sugar beet in it, allowing the human race to mass produce flavor science to keep their brains addicted and loyal to their facade of food security. Meanwhile, the diversity of whole food has been snuffed out through the years — heirloom seeds displaced by genetically modified food science. With pesticides depleting soil of its natural microbiology, the food grown today is simultaneously depleted of nutrients. This leaves the human race with suppressed immune systems.
On top of that, excess refined sugar and salt fills grocery store foods. Food products have become inundated with ingredients not meant for human consumption, like cancer-causing sodium nitrates and nitrites. The evidence of a dying human breed is all around, in the statistics today. Americans are fatter than ever and suffering from metabolic distress like never before. Are Americans living longer or beginning a slow painful death process sooner? Almost half of adults now have pre-diabetes or diabetes. Heaps of Americans now suffer from cancer and heart attacks. In fact, according to USA Today, new federal health data show that 12.3 percent of Americans age 20 and older have diabetes.
