I was looking at the news over on Yahoo yesterday and ran across this sobering article. I knew all of it already but I absolutely did NOT know about UTAH and that horrifying thing. Read all of this for your own good. Apparently we all feel helpless and lay down and take it. Scroll all the way down.
Aside from that horror..give some thought to what is happening regarding the Nation's obesity epidemic as it has been called. Now folks, there will always be those who over-eat. I know that. There will be those who eat so-called junk food. I am aware of that as well. But it has been that way since time began. What I want to know is now why are even babies so over weight that they TOO are called obese? And you and I both know I am not referring to baby fat as it used to be called. These infants and toddlers..of course children all the way through school are increasingly obese. Now guys and gals, sorry. Sitting around after school isn't going to do all of that. And what about the infants and babies and toddlers?
Can you say additives and chemicals in our food stream these past years ladies and gents? I fully believe that additives put in our food supply by foreign manufactures and those manufacturers here in this Country who manufacture foodstuffs- are adding things that never were there in the food supplies thru the years until the last generation who are adults now, fat and with fat children by and large (no pun intended). Since there is melamine in the baby formula, and this Country apparently allows a certain amount..and who knows WHAT else in the rest of the food stream aside from the antibiotics etc which are scary all in themselves (antibiotics) who KNOWS what we are ingesting with no knowledge and no way to stop it?
Again..yes. People over eat, But not to the tune of 45-50% obesity rate for the Country. Something external to their eating habits is at fault these days in my opinion and by the way..what about the horrible rise in diabetes both in little children and adults?
The media NEVER address anything other than acting as though everyone is purposefully eating themselves into oblivion. Well, I don't think they are, at least no more than did in generations before this one.
Now, our animals are at risk again. See this recall.
