The more I hear from Pollan the more I just LOVE THIS MAN! Here is another great article that just does my "Fighting-Corporate-Control-of-Our-Bodies" heart wonders! :-)
The article wraps up with: "While the governmental attitude toward food has turned significantly under President Obama, we do control our destiny to eat in a way that takes the world and our own health into account.
Kurtis suggested consumers should vote with your pocketbook. Pollan said vote with your fork. Waiting for government to turn around huge issues concerning our food supply will be a long time in coming, especially with the latest e-coli problem. We do need to push the government, but ultimately, we need to push ourselves."
The SparkPeople community has certainly inspired ME toward taking greater and greater responsibility for my food choices and becoming increasingly less influenced by corporate media when it comes to making my food choices. In fact, I'm NEGATIVELY influenced by media...if it's hyped on TV or the radio...I become VERY suspicious and critical...lol, go ahead and waste more advertising dollars on the likes of MOI!
